Margaret F. re: Prepositions Activity - Squirrel & Tree
I like your activity but there was no list of prepositions or template of the tree or squirrel just directions on how to fold were attached

Hi!

It is about 10 slides (maybe 8?). I will double check and reply again. It's designed for a single class period.

Hi Katherine,

I saw your "Casey at the Bat," reader's theater script, and noticed that you have a disclaimer/license notice on it. I also write scripts for kids, but I've shied away from using any derived work. Just curious as to whether you are aware of special licensing/laws that permit us to create and sell scripts derived from copy-written work?

Cheers,

Janea

I use Creative Commons. They have very detailed & helpful explanations of all their licenses (free to use on your work) that explain exactly what each one is for.

Is it just me...or am I missing the squirrel in the tree for the forest :-) Does this come with a squirell and tree to color or do I need to find my own for the pop up?

No, it doesn't come with coloring pages, but that's a cool idea! I happen to have an old inflatable palm tree and a stuffed toy squirrel that I use when I teach the lesson. :)

Buyer re: Readers' Theatre: "Casey at the Bat" ACTIVITIES BUNDLE
Can I have the readers theater of Casey at the Bat? I was expecting the readers theater not the worksheets.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching middle school (taught all 3 grades at some point) for 10 years, all in English/Language Arts, and one year in which I had to teach both 6th grade ELA and Social Studies. Having taught all kinds of learners, I'm now specializing in gifted education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a Gifted Education Specialist, I emphasize the development and showcasing of creativity in my classroom. I try to show my students that creativity comes in lots of forms - not just art or writing. For example, they were HUGE fans of CSA Cmdr Chris Hadfield and his videos about life in the International Space Station. Currently, I am learning more about Project-Based Learning and am hoping to begin using it more regularly in my Gifted Resource classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year Finalist, school year 2009-2010. Coach of the Year (track & field) for school years 2006-2007 and 2011-2012. My students at all levels showed consistent growth in Reading End-of-Grade (NC) standards during my time in North Carolina. Now based in Virginia and working with Gifted & Talented students, my students are showing consistent "Pass Advanced" rates on Reading Standards-of-Learning (VA) tests.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Gifted Education endorsement, University of Virginia (2014). M.Ed., Special Education, Elon University (2009). B.F.A., English (conc. Creative Writing), UNC-Greensboro (2004). B.A., Classical Studies, UNC-Greensboro (2004).

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Born & raised in North Carolina, currently living in Northern Virginia. Personal interests include: sewing & crafts, art/photography, fiction writing, cooking, travel.
