Welcome Back to (School) Work



Normally this would be a blog post about how we love this time of year. It’s Back to School and our biggest sale of the year.

But seriously. Summer is over, and we already miss it.

As a parent, it’s back to rushed mornings and early tempers.

As a student, it’s back to school.

As an educator, it’s back to work.

This blog is for educators who go beyond their classroom curriculum, looking for content and reading ideas to make their lessons more engaging and fun.

So if you’re an educator reading this post we just want to say, we’re sorry your summer vacation is over, but thank you so much for all that you will be doing this year to help your students read better.
