Each Tuesday, I will be featuring a new teacher on my blog. I will share lots of fun info about that teacher and you will pay it forward by providing fun feedback on 3 of that teacher's products in order to enter the giveaway. Then, next Tuesday, the featured teacher will pay it forward by providing the prize for the new giveaway!
Today's featured teacher is......
Bex from The Reading and Writing Redhead!
Let's get to know a little about her:
"My favorite thing about teaching is that both my students and I can get really enthusiastic about what we are learning and it is so contagious! If I am excited about something - for example I have a lot of fun teaching vocabulary to my second graders - they get pumped up and really into it and vice versa. If there is a topic I am not so interested in but my kiddos are into it, their enthusiasm is contagious. We have a lot of fun while we learn a lot!"
"I started teaching because I spent a lot of time babysitting and hanging out with my younger cousins and a friend in college got me to try volunteering for the environmental education program at the local school since she knew I enjoyed kids. I loved it! It was meant to be and everything followed from there."
"I really love my Second Grade End of the Year Mega Math Review. It was super fun to create, includes tons of games, easy activities, and my favorite cut and glue activities! It helps review almost every single second grade math CCSS standard and was so helpful to me and my class in May and June this past school year. I know I am getting in the review we need to do but the kiddos hardly know they are working because they are enjoying it! I love a lot of the fun clip art I used and themes like a Harry Potter - magic themed activity for example."
"I love wrapping up the day with a few minutes where my kiddos write one or more sentences about the day - what happened, what they were excited about... they love reading them out loud and it is a fun way to communicate with parents as to what is going on. I use this easy (and free ) form I made for it:" (Click the picture below for the link.)
"It is my Second Grade Back to School Starter Kit and it is full of fun and useful activities, games, and assessments that I use to get my year started off on the right foot. But, I think many of the activities could be used with first and third graders (writing prompts for example)! It includes a ton:
Write the Numbers 1-50 in Color and b&w
(Write the numbers 1-100 is a separate file in this zip file)
Capital and Lower Case Letter Assessment
Short addition assessment
Short subtraction assessment
Back to School Question Circle
A Friend Like Me Scavenger Hunt

(with and without sentence starters;

Classroom Scavenger Hunt
