that you are going to be out or for lesson enhancement. These units are wonderful, also, for teaching informational text, includes charts and graphs, and also has extended response. I wouldn't recommend for a 5-minute filler though as the lessons are long. However, I make class packets of the units that are part of my curriculum and keep them on hand for subs as well as use them for a grade. I love it!

I bought this to save time with hunting for the 5 minute "daily warm-up". activity. This is a great tool although a bit long for 6th graders and therefore time consuming. I would like to have them a bit shorter. Another thing I wish it would do is have the ability to save a single page in the electronic lesson planner. Right now I have to scan each page to save it individually. Overall it is worth the price.
