Dear Teachers,

Those days when everything is humming in your classroom, when every student (even Billy) is on task, when the whole building seems to be alive with learning -- those are great days!

Days like this sometimes come when you think on the fly, make a pivot and come up with something in the moment. But more often they start with strong preparation. You have a plan. A good one.

This marks our 50th 10 Free Downloads newsletter. We hope that more often than not, you were aided in having a great teaching day by what you've found here or in the main TpT catalog. We plan on sending you many more!

Teach and be well,
