Pam J. re: Basic Black Gingham Alphabet Posters & Cards
I just purchased these alphabet posters and I was wondering if you would be able to change the vowels to red. If you can, that would be wonderful! Also, would you be able to make an alphabet chart using the same graphics (vowels in red), all on one 8.5"x11"page? I would be willing to pay extra for this. Thank you! Pam J. mpjutras@hotmail.com

the red vowels sound like a great idea. I will certainly do that for you. Would you like the alphabet chart to have one large gingham border or just a chart that has a miniature of each card on it?

Any chance you'd make these for the lower numbers 3-9 too? I'd love them for my first graders.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching nearly 20 years, and until last school year, I taught primarily 5th and 6th grade. Last year, I was moved to second grade during a last minute "shift". By the time I was successfully resuscitated, the school year had started and I spent the entire year shuffling. Previously, I never had to use centers (5th and 6th grade were treated more like middle school), and I felt like a first year teacher. I am on a mission to create engaging, relevant, and effective center activities that incorporate rigorous learning.I didn't anticipate that I would enjoy second grade, but I do! I love the fact that children at this age still get really excited about learning.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am always adapting to the students' needs. We use lots of manipulatives, and I rely alot on my school's outdoor garden classroom to help provide real experiences.
