skip the design phase and head straight
to the cha-ching phase!

I know what it’s like…

Have you ever experienced…

…that sinking feeling of creating content, only to discover it mirrors every other seller’s or teacher’s work in the hallway? The cringe-worthy moment when a particular resource sells, but deep down, you know it could use a substantial upgrade. 

Battling self-doubt and grappling with limiting beliefs, questioning if you possess the creativity or tech-savvy prowess to navigate it all. And let’s not forget the constant internal struggle, convinced that your plate is already overflowing with responsibilities, leaving no room for yet another course.

Create with confidence!

Imagine if you could…

Plug & Play PowerPoint Templates

Let’s talk about those TpT template courses that promise you can whip up a creation in just 15 minutes. Sounds tempting, right? Well, let me offer you a fresh perspective. If it’s that easy to recreate, it’s not going to sell like hotcakes, plain and simple (nor is it going to motivate students). Teachers can easily make their own version instead of making a purchase. Those “15 minute” creations are not going to be your “top earners” or best-sellers. They might add quantity to your shop, but they certainly lack the quality that sets you apart.

Teachers are searching for those precious gems they just don’t have the time to create themselves. Every teacher dreams of trying an escape room in their classroom, but the daunting logistics of puzzles, page layouts, and piecing it all together stops them dead in their tracks.

But imagine this—what if you created that escape room for them?

Cloaked in Fun Review

If you’ve been thinking of selling online but don’t have a shop set up yet -> Cloaked in Fun is the PERFECT place to begin. 

Why not earn a little side-income for all your hard work? I mean, you’re already creating lesson plans, right?

Even if you decide to start selling in 5 years, you’ll have a commercial use license. 

Module 1: Vocabulary Activities

Module 2: Escape Rooms

Module 3: Stations & Primary Sources

Module 4: Scavenger Hunts

Module 5: Color by Number & Comprehension

Module 6: Digital Activities

Module 7: Add-Ons or Extensions

You do NOT have to be a TPT seller to benefit from these templates!

Learn how to make your TPT products stand out in a sea of sellers (or the classroom)!

+ additional earning & learning opportunities!

Having a fancy cover and preview might make you look good on the surface, but if your products lack that spark of excitement, if they’re as dull as watching paint dry, then it’s all for nothing. Teachers crave engaging experiences with a twist of fun that captivate the minds of their students.

Let’s face it, the core of your success lies in the products themselves. You can check off all those “business” boxes, but if your offerings fall flat, it’s time for a reality check. The true measure of your triumph lies in the quality and appeal of what you’re putting out into the world…not a catchy cover or an SEO optimized product description.

Whether you are on a midday walk at the park or relaxing poolside on vacation, your bank account could still grow while you are off doing the things you enjoy most.

With pre-made templates, you have the power to work from anywhere in the world. Travel, explore, live life on your terms, all while nurturing a thriving business that supports your dream lifestyle.

What if you could CONFIDENTLY and EASILY create new, high-converting lesson plans without starting from scratch. Imagine having EVERYTHING you needed to create and sell your own!

Imagine if you could be the CREATOR
instead of the consumer.

What if turning your ideas into reality became easier? Imagine having creativity and graphic design seamlessly integrated, with straightforward steps to effortlessly infuse your unique content.

The templates were built with social studies, science and ELA teachers grades 3-10 in mind (sorry math teachers!) Many of the templates use a reading passage, that’s why those subjects and grade levels were chosen. Ideally, they are for teachers looking to refresh their shop or lesson plans with a twist of fun…without starting from scratch. 

Never get stuck in the logistics or design phase again!

How can Cloaked in Fun save me time?

(and energy)

I’m going out on a limb here and taking a wild guess that when you need to spruce up a lesson, you head to TpT and spend a few bucks. You download the lesson you just bought, determine it’s not quite what you needed, try to make some modifications but realize it is not editable, so you decide to use the sub-par lesson as is. Let’s say that lesson was on the US Constitution. Now, when the day is over, you pack the lesson into a file folder and store away to use next year. A whole year goes by before you can use it again.

Think of all the time you are ALREADY spending on TpT, Pinterest, Google, YouTube and Tik Tok looking for ideas. With the same time used to search for, learn how to use, modify and find a lesson online, you can work through a template. The templates provided inside this course can be modified and used again next week, next month or next quarter across multiple units and subjects! (Think of all the money you'll save throughout the year.)

Now, let’s say you modify an escape room activity. Once you list the product or use it in your classroom, your audience goes wild. You decide you want to take advantage of the template and create another escape room to introduce the Bill of Rights. You simply head back to the escape room template, add your content, change the 4-digit code and VOILA!

You get to use the SAME template again, one that created a buzz of energy in the classroom, turning your teacher audience into raving fans that come back for more.

Inside Cloaked in Fun, you will NEVER find a drill and kill worksheet or textbook style activity. The goal is to HOOK the students and get them excited to learn. The templates are NOT just busy work, they inspire collaboration, foster critical thinking skills, incorporate movement and best of all add a twist of fun.

These activities can take a load off your shoulders as a teacher while also giving your kids thoughtful, inquiry-based lessons that encourage independent work that they’ll actually want to do!

You’ll get all the tools and over-the-shoulder training you need so you can bypass the frustrating trial-and-error process.

What if you could QUICKLY and EASILY create activities that look like this:

It IS possible for students to learn and have fun at the same time, without even realizing they're absorbing valuable knowledge.

Get a sneak peak inside!

If you’re ready to move from a “sage on the stage” to a “guide on the side” and transition your classroom to student-centered learning, then the Cloaked in Fun course is just the answer you're looking for!

We’ve all been there – facing those blank stares and distant daydreams during a lesson. But what if I told you there’s a way to turn those passive learning moments into a captivating classroom adventure?
 
Most students don’t walk into your classroom motivated to learn, its YOUR job as a teacher to trigger that inner motivation.
 
Imagine waltzing into your classroom stress-free, armed with engaging, gamified lessons. Imaging feeling giddy with excitement and anticipation of the lesson.
 
It’s time to bid farewell to traditional teaching methods and embrace the magic of gamification! 

“I tried to do it all on my own in the past and it’s really difficult. I’m glad to have a template, everything is all set up, it’s very clear, it looks nice and my students and I are having a lot of fun!

— Kristin, Teacher

Picture this...

6 weeks from now, you’ve created a library of differentiated, student-centered templates that you CAN’T WAIT to show your students.
 
📝Your class takes ownership of their learning in a way you never thought was possible.
 

👀 Your principal and co-workers are asking you how you have such motivated students in your classroom. 

 ⏰ You’re spending more time with your family… and not searching the internet for resources to “make work” in your classroom. 

💰 You heard your first few “cha-chings” because you were motivated to open up a TPT store or list them in your already created shop.

A vault of Best Practices...Yes, Please!

A program founded on industry best practices and modern teaching philosophy.

This course is founded on the paradigm of student-centered learning, not just as an occasional approach but as a fundamental stance that teachers adopt in their classrooms.

We are ALL Learners

Removing the teacher from the center of the classroom environment and building a culture of community learning is key to a classroom where students take hold of their education and dive deeply into learning.

Power of the Hook

Equipping students with the prior knowledge and vocabulary they need to succeed doesn’t have to be boring! Pique student interest from the start and give them the language they need to comprehend, and they will be equipped to dive deep into the content of your unit.

The Raw Materials of History and Science

One of the main paradigms of our educational philosophy is that students need to be taught how to think and not what to think. By nature, primary sources invite students to inquiry. Because these sources have not been interpreted for them, they take the active role of the interpreters.

Writing is Thinking

Regardless of where you currently fall on the spectrum of attitudes towards writing, I want you to consider this question: How would your students’ lives be changed if they consistently practiced writing?

Let’s Get Moving

I know it can feel frightening to give up the physical “control” of a classroom. Part of embracing the paradigm of student centered learning is taking this risk. Teachers who embrace this “guide on the side” mentality shift the focus from themselves as the imparters of knowledge and instead place the responsibility on the students as discoverers.

Scientific and Historical Thinking

This module is focused on articulating the hallmarks of scientific and historical thinking and why they matter to us all. Students need training in order to learn how to conduct research in an unbiased manner without imposing their preconceived ideas on the results.

Embedding Literacy and Differentiation

Content areas such as science and social studies are excellent candidates for reading instruction because of the abundance of informational texts. Through identifying literacy skills, explaining how to embed them in your content, and discussing effective differentiation, this guide will equip you to not only help students understand your content but also transfer reading strategies into reading skills.

Time to Gamify

The power of games to increase motivation in a classroom is what makes them such an incredible tool for teachers. Gamification in the classroom can feel daunting to implement games that are both rigorous, encouraging learning, and fun. However daunting it may appear, incorporating elements of game theory (called gamification) has been proven to greatly affect students’ engagement and motivation.

Who is this course for?

Hey there!

Selling teacher resources sort of came by accident. My husband lost his job of 21 years in the corporate world. As the only income earner, I began to worry about our future. How could I afford to take care of the family solely on a teacher’s salary?

That’s when I decided to open a TPT shop. In all honesty, I was hoping to bring in an extra hundred or two to help with the car payment. Little did I know that this seemingly insignificant download would turn into a cash-generating machine. That $3.56 cha-ching was all I needed to hear.

I spent days (if not weeks) scouring the internet for TpT “seller success stories” and when I found the article about Deanna Jump making one million dollars, I was HOOKED. If she can do it, so can I!

In just 14 months, I hit the first two TpT milestones. In under five years I surpassed milestone #3 and went on to reach the “unofficial” milestone #4 one year later. In less than two years, I have also turned my Etsy shop into a 6-figure business! So, I think I know a thing or two about creating activities that stand out.

YES — we accept school purchase orders!

Chances are, your principal will be excited that you are wanting to implement research-backed teaching methods and improve critical thinking skills for your students!

“It is probably one of the best purchases that I’ve ever made in terms of printables for Teachers Pay Teachers.”

— Aquita, Teacher

Maybe you’re thinking that building a wildly successful TpT business seems too good to be true.

I get it. During the 15 years I spent working as a teacher, I never could have imagined that I would be making 6-figures….much less 7-figures! Because, frankly, it was impossible to do in the field of education.

While now, I have my business running smoothly, I started at the bottom, like everyone else. I was trapped in a classroom creating lesson plans, sending parent emails & enduring micromanagement, all while being underpaid.

For years, I just accepted this as one of the facts of teaching. We teach for the kids, not the money…right? Then I found the power of cloaking the learning and everything changed.

When I created my first resource for TpT, I was a middle school teacher with no special skill set. I am not a graphic designer. I didn’t have a “team” of marketing experts, heck, I didn’t even have a large social media following (and I still don’t). My resources were nowhere to be found in the “search.”

Let’s shift the focus back to what truly matters —> the heart and soul of your business or classroom —> the products themselves.

Uncover the secrets that helped me surpass $1 million in earnings

“But Lisa… why would you want to give away all of your ideas? Aren’t you creating more competition?”

The world of educational resources is VAST, and the market opportunities are endless. I’m sharing this with you so you can have a slice of this pie, too. I want to help you make the money you deserve by sharing your creative ideas, in less time.

When you have a go-to set of templates for your escape rooms, scavenger hunts, color by number and digital games, you can fill in any theme or topic and hit publish without having to figure out all of the puzzles, solutions, and complex challenges that come with putting together gamified lessons. (They’re pretty hard to DIY! That’s why I’ve made it easy for you to bring the content and leave the puzzling to me.)

But what can a $5 product really do?

1 sale per day = 

$ 100
per month

That could cover gas money and the pedicure you’ve been thinking of

5 sales per day =

$ 650
per month

Um, hello…that’s half of  a mortgage payment

15 sales per day =

$ 1800
per month

We’re dreaming big here and shooting for a future of financial freedom

Look at what just one product has earned...

Now imagine having 200+ products (I'll let you do the math!)

Still undecided?

This is the perfect fit for you if…

This is not a great fit for you if…

With Cloaked in Fun, you’ll not only gain the confidence and guidance you need to transition to a standout seller or teacher, but you’ll also get the tools you need to do it!

More reviews from our students!

"I've been selling on TpT for 8 years. I have to admit, I was hesitant to grab this course because I was worried it was just for beginners.

My “to-do” list is a mile long now!"

"I love your teaching style"
"Best teacher course out there! All i can say is grab it now while you can - you won't regret it!"
"You won't regret it"

The cost of not taking action comes at a higher price tag than the cost taking action in the long run. Acting sooner is the ultimate investment in yourself (plus you deserve it!)

Say goodbye to ordinary and hello to extraordinary! While other courses might have you creating the same old lesson plans – boring multiple choice, basic word searches, and generic scavenger hunts (yawn!), Cloaked in Fun stands in a league of its own.

Will this be the moment you go for it? Or will you put it off for another year? Keep bookmarking money-making ideas on social media and never actually take action?

Have some questions?

I've got you covered!

The templates were built with social studies, science and ELA teachers grades 3-10 in mind, though Math and other grade levels could certainly use SOME of them. Many of the templates use a reading passage, that’s why those subjects and grade levels were chosen. Ideally, they are for teachers looking to refresh their  shop with a twist of fun…without starting from scratch. 

  • Social studies teachers 
  • Science teachers
  • ELA teachers
  • Tutors
  • District coaches
  • TPT Sellers

Inside the course you’ll get access to pre-made escape rooms, scavenger hunts, mystery words, cryptograms, and ALL kinds of other FUN stuff. Planning an escape room has never been easier! You do not need to decide what type of puzzles or the layout of the tasks. I’ve done all the research, graphic designing and “heavy work” for you.

When you use the templates found inside the course, you can reuse them over and over with new content. Now, let’s say you modify an escape room activity. Once you list the product, your audience goes wild. You decide you want to take advantage of the template and create another escape room to introduce the Bill of Rights. You simply head back to the escape room template, add your content, change the 4-digit code and VOILA! You get to use the SAME template again, one that created a buzz of energy in the classroom, turning your teacher audience into raving fans that come back for more.

Nope, sorry! These templates and lessons cannot be found anywhere else.

The course is self-paced so you can work from the comfort of your own couch in Pjs if you want. Think of all the time you are ALREADY spending on TpT, Pinterest, Google, YouTube and Tik Tok looking for ideas. With the same time used to search for, learn how to use, design and figure out the logisitics of your idea, you can work through a template.  

Of course! I understand the difficulty for teachers or teacherpreneurs to pay for everything all at once so there are TWO payment plan options allow you to pay for the course over three months or six months.

It sure will but your future self and bank account will thank you. Plus – the amount of time you’ll save by using templates is priceless! This is an investment in YOURSELF, stop putting your business on the back burner. You’ll need to devote a little time for each template, but the structure, creativity and framework are already there for you. You can use the templates over and over again. Think of all of the cha-chings you’ll hear!

These templates are NOT one and done. With every template in this course, you can change the borders, clipart, fonts, 4-digit codes, mystery words, images, readings and questions. Again, these templates can be modified and used over and over in years to come – just add content.

Inside Cloaked in Fun, you will NEVER find a drill and kill worksheet or textbook style activity. The goal is to HOOK the students and get them excited to learn. But how can you do that if your resources look the same as every other sellers. The templates are NOT just busy work, they inspire collaboration, foster critical thinking skills, incorporate movement and best of all add a twist of fun.

YES! Your purchase of the course means that you get a commercial use license to sell anything you create with the templates in your TpT shop. You cannot, however, sell the templates as-is without adding your own content.

You get LIFETIME access to the entire course, templates and video tutorials! You’ll even get access to any future updates once you enroll.

The course was created for busy teacherpreneurs just like you! Anyone looking to take a load off their plate knowing they always have access to highly engaging templates for their shop can enroll. Bloggers, Etsy sellers, TPT sellers…anyone with a platform to sell digital products is invited!

No sorry, each teacherpreneur will need their own membership and commercial use license.

Sprinkling in fun doesn’t mean sacrificing educational value. Oh no, it’s quite the contrary. When you wrap learning in a cloak of fun, you create an environment where students are eager to participate, where their natural curiosity leads them to explore and discover. And guess what? They’re learning, and they’re loving every minute of it.

How does BOTH sound? The majority are printables but there is a whole module on digital activities so that you have access to a variety of activities.  

To use the templates in this course, you MUST have PowerPoint installed on your computer. To use the digital activity templates, you will need a Google account to access and edit Google Sheets and Google Slides. 

I’m so glad you asked! I am certified in Secondary Social Studies, ESE and have a reading endorsement. I have written curriculum for CPALMS and the Florida Department of Education. I spent 15 years in the classroom, led district wide PD, and received numerous awards including Teacher of the Year from the Florida House of Representatives. I also received 4 years of PERFECT observation scores and had an article written about my scores in the newspaper. I surpassed all the TPT milestones in less than 5 years and have gone beyond the unofficial million dollar milestone.

Scroll through this page to see which templates are included and which module you can find them in. From escape rooms and scavenger hunts to mystery mazes and reading challenges, I’ve got you covered.

This course  is something I truly wish I had when I started my teacherpreneur journey. It’s like having a virtual mentor that walks you step by step through the planning and design phase.

Let’s talk about those TpT template courses that promise you can whip up a creation in just 15 minutes. Sounds tempting, right? Well, let me offer you a fresh perspective. If it’s that easy to recreate, it’s not going to sell like hotcakes, plain and simple. Teachers can easily make their own version instead of making a purchase. Those “15 minute” creations are not going to be your “top earners” or best-sellers. They might add quantity to your shop, but they certainly lack the quality that sets you apart.

Here’s the real secret to success: Create activities that teachers simply can’t recreate easily. Activities that require thoughtful planning and preparation (don’t worry, I’ve done the prep work for you!). Teachers are searching for those precious gems they just don’t have the time to create themselves. Every teacher dreams of trying an escape room in their classroom, but the daunting logistics of puzzles, page layouts, and piecing it all together stops them dead in their tracks. But imagine this—what if you created that escape room for them?

We offer a full refund within 15 days as long as you have not moved past Module 1.

If you have moved past Module 1, a refund will not be granted. Email [email protected] with any questions or concerns.
