To date, we've given out 1,702 free PDF copies of The Story Engine deck to families & educators in quarantine! The plan is to keep it going! (We want everyone to say safe and creative at home for the long haul!)
But I'm going to be switching to a new system that doesn't require me to manually process requests!
First, I'm going to open the gates and make a full-quality 60-card demo available to anyone for free, educator or not. No waiting for me to process requests.
Lesson plans, blanks cards, and the card creator webapp will remain 100% free to anyone who wants to use them at any time.
Educators will still be able to access the full 180-card deck, but I'm going to make it a printer-friendly variant @ 12 cards per page w/ simple white backgrounds to reduce ink usage + increase visibility.
I think this will support families & educators through ongoing quarantine while reducing my load for manual processing.
For now you can still access the deck request form here. I'll honour all requests until the changeover.
Thanks to everyone who has shared kind words about the deck or shared it with others. Giving away these decks was possible because of the depth of support we have from our community.
Stay home, stay safe, and please remember to wear a mask when you're out in public!
