Thank you for visiting Lessons from the Classroom. I’m a passionate teacher with over 30 years of experience, and I’m pleased to offer these downloadable lessons.

I started Lessons from the Classroom in 2014 when my school year was unexpectedly interrupted by surgery and I was home for six weeks.  Missing the classroom, I began to design comprehensive, innovative and engaging lesson plans for teachers, substitutes and other educators.  Each lesson plan is a complete Print and Go Package.

While each lesson plan is different, many plans include reading comprehension, word puzzles, math exercises and other self directed activities.

Exclusively, many Lessons from the Classroom packages include “Read to Me“, where students can read along while I read to them via our iPad App or an Browser based Mac or PC.  As I read, the active sentence is highlighted for the student.

To day, I have released over 61 lessons with thousands of downloads.  I’m proud to say that virtually every lesson has a perfect 4.0 out of 4.0 rating.

My top selling  lessons are:
