Ideabook Wants You! (Yes, YOU!)

By the Storyworks Editors
July 12, 2019

Storyworks teachers are our greatest source of inspiration—we go bananas for your creativity and wisdom!

This school year, we want to share the love with other teachers and Storyworks fans, so we’re featuring more of your fabulous ideas on our blog, Ideabook. We’re looking for teaching tips, classroom hacks, teacher advice, and more!

Here’s how it works: Check out the list of examples of topics we’re hoping to cover in Ideabook this year (below). If one of them inspires you, send us an email with your brief submission (100 words maximum—and we love bullet point lists!) to with “Ideabook” in the subject line. Be sure to include a few pictures.* 

And here’s the best part: We want to recognize and reward you for your contribution! If something you send us is published on Ideabook, we’ll send you a $25 Amazon gift card AND mail a letter to your principal or district recognizing you for your contribution.

We can’t wait to hear from you! And, as always, if you have any questions you can drop us a line at
