“This resource is amazing. It has been a huge time-saver and lifeline for me as a teacher and it is engaging for the students. I find it very comprehensive and that I get a lot of assessment data from following it. I’ve also appreciated the ability to modify documents as needed for my IEP students. This is seriously a lifesaver!!!”

Hey teachers!

We’re Claire and Terry, two Ontario teachers with a combined 40+ years of teaching experience! Claire is the upper elementary teacher and Terry specializes in middle school.

We believe in creating engaging yet rigorous learning opportunities that build problem-solving and critical thinking in our students. BUT we believe teachers need a life outside the classroom too!

We’re here to help with teaching tips and resources focused on Language ArtsMath and Assessment from grades 4-8.
