Each Tuesday, I have been featuring a new teacher on my blog. I 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......
Tara from Looney's Literacy Blog!
Let's get to know a little about her:
"This is a hard one to narrow down for me. I love it all! I'm a literacy interventionist who has the opportunity to push into a lot of regular classrooms K-6. I love working with struggling readers and kids who need enrichment. I feel like sometimes those kiddos get set aside to be addressed later due to the stress of the students who struggle. I like sharing my passion of all things literacy and watching it drive my students into creating their own literacy world.
I also enjoy working with my colleagues. We're a pretty small district and I feel like we are kind of like family. I also like learning from and with them as much as I do the students! "
"I've always wanted to be a teacher. For as long as I can remember, my sister and I played "school." The only other thing I ever dreamed of doing was to be an author and I've recently started pursuing this dream as well."
"I haven't had a store for very long so I don't have a lot to choose from but I would have to say my, Have You Seen My Baby Bear? alphabet matching book would have to be my favorite. I made my first year of teaching and love it for the back to school year when my Kindergartners come in needing alphabet review activities. "
"Make sure students have time to talk. Our brain is a "social" learner, the more social interaction it encounters the more learning is taking place."
"I will be giving away this alphabet matching book:
This product can be put together in a variety of different ways. It can be put together in one big alphabet book or you can split it into 5-6 little books with just a few letters at a time.
It can be used in a variety of ways as well. It can be used for letter identification or sound recognition. Or the "little bears" could be playing together and making sight words for those who have mastered letter i.d. and sound recognition.
This product includes:
6 book covers
14 capital letter Mama Bears sheets
3 lower case Baby Bear sheets"
