I would truly be lost without Lesson Planet! Although I have been in the classroom for over 25 years, I am very challenged by the need to obtain English-language student materials here in Estonia where I am the International Teacher for an Estonian public school. These materials are excellent, and well suited to ELL/ESL students. Especially, I can find both primary materials AND more sophisticated lessons - Math here, for instance, is quite advanced and I use materials from upper grades in addition to elementary math materials. Thank Goodness for Lesson Planet!|
