TEACHERS WHO HAVE USED THIS PRODUCT HAVE SAID:
♥ “If you teach grades 5 or 6 in Ontario and have not purchased these products from Coach’s Corner…what’s wrong with you? Comprehensive material, super organized, students are engaged, teacher is happy! Thank you!” (Thanks, Fantastic Fives)
♥ “This was a lifesaver for me last year and I’ll use it again this year! I was new to grade 5/6 after over a decade of teaching primary and was having some trouble reacclimating to the curriculum (especially since so much of it has changed over the years). I was especially stressed about the Social Studies curriculum and was a bit nervous that this unit was TOO comprehensive and in depth and that the kids would be bored… Boy was I wrong! The kids really enjoyed both strands in both grades! In particular, the kids LOVED debating and I was beaming when most had actual arguments to use to win over the “audience”. I’m excited to this again this year and *I* feel SO much more confident in the subject matter so I can only imagine how this affects my students and their learning!” (Thanks, Melissa Radomsky)
♥ “I bought this unit because I am new to both grade 5 and 6 and I just needed something to get me through social studies. I started using unit B last week and I was shocked with how great the lessons are. I don’t think I could have created anything better.” (Thanks, Suzanne D.)
