    What does the blue ring do in super grammar ninja? I’ve bought it, but it doesn’t seem to do anything. Can you tell me what it does?

    • It reduces the amount of damage that you take by half. I pretty much copied it from the original Legend of Zelda. You should check that one out. It is one of the best games of all time.

    it’s one of the best sites that I have visited. Thank you so much, sir! Is there any possible way to know about your personal information? like a short bio? I would like to add it in my book. I actually copied most of your worksheets.

    Thank you so much, Mr. Morton! I teach mostly honors students but still have several who have fallen through the cracks and need a lot of help in the area of craft and structure. I can’t even begin to imagine how much time I’m saving not having to look up multiple examples of each type of text structure for my kids to practice with. I greatly appreciate your generosity!

    Hi M. Morton,
    Thanks so much for you generosity. I’m a mom of a grade 7 student. She is a french school. But still as we live in Canada, I want her to master the nuances of the language. Especially that we don’t speak English at home. The kids are polyglote. Your Website is perfect, thanks a ton.

    Hi. I love this site and I have been with you for years!

    I am an Adult Education Teacher and it is difficult to find lower level reading worksheets written in a way that is not insulting to adult learners.

    The content here is appropriate for my students from my lowest level readers all the through to the advanced.

    Thank you for this! Please, keep up the fantastic work!!!
