It’s for new teachers AND veteran teachers. (Whether you’re new to the profession or have tons of experience, everyone needs fresh ideas and support!)
A club membership is not recommended for teachers of grades other than first and second grade.
This may not be a good fit for you if you need teaching materials in Spanish, Australian English, or another language. All materials will be provided in U.S. English, and some will not be editable.

Each month, you’ll receive 4 different versions of a passage. Each passage will include 3 literacy activities (for a total of 12 leveled activities). These materials make it easy to differentiate for your small groups and centers or Daily 5!
No! Many of the materials will be no-prep (print and use, or even use digitally) and a few activities will require some minor assembly. ALL color materials are provided in black and white. Overall, the materials will save you time and not require tons of ink or prep time!
