For an entire year of highly engaging, no prep lesson plans and student activities, download my Grade 3 – 5Grade 6 – 8, or Grade 9 – 12 reading with short films bundle.

Why not teach common core standards for English Language Arts using Pixar short films, Ted Talks, popular film clips for students and other inspirational video clips for students? Sit back, relax and enjoy as you effortlessly engage students in academically rigorous, culturally relevant ELA activities.
