Teaching reading and writing is about to get A LOT easier...

If you're a 3-5 teacher who wants to spend less time lesson planning and more time helping your students become skilled readers and writers, then The Stellar Literacy Collective has you covered! 

Tell me more!

Raise your hand if you are tired of feeling...

🙋‍♀️

Overwhelmed.

Every day you have to figure out plans and materials for small groups, read aloud, word study, writing... you're tired of spending your nights and weekends on the never-ending lesson planning hamster wheel.

🙋‍♀️

Confused.

You have one student who is still struggling to identify the letter "A" and another student reading Romeo and Juliet. You're not sure what your next steps should be to ensure that all students master your grade-level standards.

🙋‍♀️

Judged.

Maybe not by others - but by yourself. You're finding you compare yourself to other teachers who seem to have adopted the science of reading perfectly, and you're still trying to figure out how to juggle it all.

I get it. I was there too...

For years, I found myself struggling with...

 

➡︎ Spending hours scrolling through Pinterest, Instagram, and all corners of the internet looking for lesson ideas...

➡︎ Feeling stretched thin, rushed, and frustrated knowing that I could be doing more to support my students, but just didn't have the extra time...

➡︎ Spending tons of money on resources that were fluffy, ineffective, and didn't actually save me time or help my students master the standards...

➡︎ Arriving to work on Monday morning feeling like I was behind before the week even began... 

 

...feeling like teaching wasn't for me anymore. 

But then, teaching became a lot easier and more enjoyable.

Here's what changed for me... 


➡︎ I discovered how to plan effectively. I stopped doing schoolwork on nights and weekends, yet I was still planned and prepped for every lesson...

➡︎ I figured out systems and routines that helped me provide effective, engaging, and rigorous lessons to my students...

➡︎ Mondays were no longer overwhelming and exhausting. I started each week feeling prepared and confident for the week ahead... 

➡︎ I finally saw tangible growth in my students without stretching myself thin and overworking to get there... 
 

And then, I started to share my discovery with teachers around the world. 

And it started working for them too!

Don't just take my word for it...

Join the thousands of teachers who are enjoying a stress-free teacher life. 

Yes! Count me in!

Introducing

The Stellar Literacy Collective

The 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade membership that gives you everything you need to be an effective, engaging (and way less stressed) literacy teacher. 

I just finished up my Unit 1 training in LETRS...

...and it was mostly on syllabication and how very important it is to teach this to our students. I have used a few lessons from the syllables unit inside the membership, and it has EXACTLY what I need for next year! All done for me, so all I have to do is teach.

Your lessons/activities are so well written and useful for every classroom. Thank you for making my life as a teacher easier. 

You cannot go wrong with the help you get from this membership. Worth every single penny!

-Jacque Anderson, Member since 2021

I spend more time with my family...

...instead of spending hours finding or making quality instructional materials. I’ve been able to deliver content with consistency and quality.

Kids have enjoyed the mentor texts and have been able to apply the skills from our mini-lessons to their own reading, which shows me that what I’ve taught them made sense!

-Janene Goertzen Sparke Member since 2021

The membership saves me so much time...

Everything you need to teach your ELA lessons is already organized and ready to go! There are even resources for when you need to reteach a specific skill to a small group. 

I feel confident that I am thoroughly covering all the standards when I use this membership.

I love the community aspect. The Stellar Teacher Team is so thoughtful. They run trainings for the community and are constantly asking for feedback to improve the membership! I can ask a question and know that Sara or one of her team will read it and respond to me within 24 hours.

I am super grateful I found The Stellar Literacy Collective membership!

How does this sound?

What would it be like if...

 

  ... you woke up tomorrow and ever day feeling a sense of calm because you now have the exact resources you need to create a stellar literacy block? 

  ... you walked into your classroom every Monday morning excited about your lesson plans for the week?

  ... you could see real, tangible progress in all your students' reading and writing abilities?

  ... you left your classroom each and every day way earlier than normal and headed home to spend more time with your family or friends because your lesson plans were done and ready, not blank and daunting? 

 

...instead of being stressed and overwhelmed with teaching, you are excited and energized?

Well, guess what! We can make that happen...

Awesome! I'm so in!

"It has been amazing using the SLC resources and watching boys who really struggle with writing write the coolest paragraphs. I didn't have any training in helping struggling readers and writers so this has been amazing."

Cari Kincannon, Member since 2024

"I used SLC resources to teach all my fourth grade standards. I am in Texas and our standardized test scores just came in. 91% of my students showed growth."

Rebeca Horton Member since 2023

Meet your literacy coach

Hi, I'm Sara

 


Here's the truth: Teaching reading and writing in upper elementary is hard. 

But it doesn't have to be. 

I've spent over a decade working as a classroom teacher, literacy specialist, assistant principal, and curriculum writer.

Through all my experience, I've figured out how to effectively engage upper elementary students in meaningful reading and writing lessons. And I'm on a mission to help as many upper elementary teachers experience the same success.

I created this membership site because I wish I had access to something like this when I was in the classroom. 

Let me and my team do all the heavy lifting when it comes to lesson planning so you can focus on what's really important - teaching!

  You're looking for no-fluff resources that get you through the entire year and will actually help your students master the standards.

  You already have a time-saving solution that allows you to leave work at 3pm and enjoy your weekends.
