"Finally a rubric and writing checklist that my students like using!" Elaine Zaragoza, 6th grade teacher-AZ

"The magnets make it easy to move the characters around while I teach" Kelli Clifford, Kindergarten Teacher - NV

And administrators are saying...

"My teachers are using the program with enthusiasm and can really see the impact of this colorful student-friendly program that makes the abstract come alive. Students are referring to the characters when evaluating their writing. Terrific! I would highly recommend this very affordable, colorful resource for every school."
