Hear what educators are saying…


This was very easy to use and my students were able to follow along with the video and complete the initial activity easily.
— Angela D.


This resource was easy to download and was very user friendly. I used this with my remote students who struggle writing paragraphs. My students enjoyed following along with the supplemental video. They were able to move around the boxes which helped them turn sentences into a paragraph. The resource also made it easy to create their own paragraphs on the computer using the outliner. The video really helped my students see a paragraph come to life. The images on the pages were very pleasing and not too overwhelming for my students. It was extremely helpful that different reading levels were included in the packet. Also, the differentiation within each passage allowed me to support my students who are in groups but who are at different levels in their writing. The best thing about this packet is that the topics are extremely engaging for my students (such as slime and toys). Definitely recommend getting this resource if you are working via teletherapy! I look forward to seeing more of their digital resources.
