Hi Linda and Lisa,
I am a mom and former teacher with certifications in Washington, Arizona and Massachusetts, so obviously your profile jumped out at me! I am interested in creating curricula to put on TpT but have no idea how or where to start. I live in Scottsdale and would love to email, phone or take you out to coffee to "learn how" if you would be willing. Thanks, Michelle

Hi Michelle,
I'm sorry I haven't replied sooner but I'm traveling to Bismarck, ND, for a Kindergarten conference and finally have free internet! I no longer live in Phoenix since I have retired and moved to GA to be closer to my grandkids. Lisa is still in the classroom and leaves the computer work to me since she is so busy.
Where were you in Massachusetts? I lived and taught there way back in the 70's probably before you were born! After college I lived in Boston by the Public Gardens and then my husband and I bought a house in Boylston out by Worcester.

As far as creating curricula, Lisa and I are selling materials that we made first for our own classes. We'd get together and figure out a better activity than what the teacher's editions said to do! When we started selling in 2000 on our own website, we only had our regular KinderLit books that are based on pieces of literature. We made sure that the directions were very detailed and even passed them by a non-teacher to see if he/she could figure out how to do the pages. Needless to say, we have had to rewrite some of them!

When we joined TPT, we created bright and colorful covers since that seems to be what teachers look for. It irks me a little that the substance isn't as important as what the product looks like but that's the way it is.

This probably isn't answering all your questions but if you email me at lmburns2@gmail.com with more specific questions, I'd be glad to answer. We had others help us when we first started out in business and we're always ready to help others get going.

I won't be home until Wednesday so start making a list of questions and I'll see what I can do to answer them!

Thank you for purchasing our Word Family book. I just printed off the first title page and when I cut it in half at the 5 1/2" mark, I was able to see the whole title.

I'm willing to adjust it a bit and then repost the file. It will be about 30 minutes before I get it finished.

Thanks for making this suggestion!

Thank you for your interest in our books! I certainly can make the changes you want for the few books that say "Kindergarten." I think it's only KinderBears in set 1 and Kindergarten Dots in set 2. Rather than change them now, I could make the pages you need and sent them to you privately. But I would need some info from you, like your email address so please send me a private message to:

Buyer re: I Need a Coat
Can you explain a little more what this packet includes. We are having a sheep come to class and be sheared. The discussion will be about how clothing is made from the wool. This will be with a class of Pre k kids. How well will this packet mesh?
May 10, 2013 Report inappropriate comment

KinderLit  (TpT Seller)
Thank you for your interest in I Need a Coat, based on Charlie Needs a Cloak by Tomie dePaola. Our KinderLit books that are based are literature all include pages for the children to create their own versions of the story, complete directions for making those pages, and a photo page that shows the finished pages. Each of the student pages has a word or two left out that they write.

This is a simply book that has only 5 student pages and a cover. On the first page the children create a sheep with cotton balls. On the second page they make a wash tub with bubbles showing how the wool has to be cleaned and can be dyed using beets or other veggies. We dye fabric with the children and then cut it into strips for them to weave onto the third page. The fourth page uses magazines for the children to cut out articles of clothing to glue into their books to show that cloth gives us clothing. And the last page the children create a paper collage coat just like Charlie's cloak!

Although our books were created for kindergartners, there are ways to adapt them for pre-K, such as dotting in the words before running off the copies so the children just have to trace the letters instead of copying a word from the white board. The illustrations in this book are simple so you shouldn't have to make any adaptations with them for your pre-K students.

How exciting to have a live sheep sheared at school! Enjoy that experience! We're sure you'll love our I Need a Coat book too!

Rachel Gooch  (TpT Seller) re: Ezra Jack Keats KinderLit Book
Hey! My students are going to do a character study of Peter using the books Whistle for Willie, Pet Show, Peter's Chair, and The Snowy Day. Is this resource for a character study, or what exactly is it? Thanks! :)
February 16, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
KinderLit
KinderLit  (TpT Seller)
Hi Rachel,
Yes, this would be a great resource for you! When you purchase one of our KinderLit books, you get the reproducible pages so that each child in your class makes their own book to take home. You also get all the directions for each page and a photo page showing the finished pages the way we did them.

In our Ezra Jack Keats book, we provide pages for these books:
The Snowy Day
Whistle for Willie
Jennie's Hat
The Trip
Goggles!
A Letter to Amy
Peter's Chair

You would not need to do all those pages - just pick and choose the ones that fit your purpose.

We also used Peter for a character study and did a graphic organizer with the following sections: Self, Family, Friends, Favorites. Every time we read a book with Peter in it, we added to the chart. The children loved trying to figure out how old Peter was in each story. When they gave a guess, they had to give a reason for it. For example in The Snowy Day many would guess he was 4 or 5 because his mom had to help him with his snowsuit. But in Whistle for Willie he was older because he could go to the store by himself!

You can check out more about our books at www.KinderLit.com. Or please contact me personally at lmburns2@gmail.com. We used to sell a short author study about Ezra that included the book and I still have the unit on my computer. I would be glad to send it to you but I can't attach a file here!

Please contact us again if you have more questions,

Thanks for your interest in our Three Little Pigs book! TPT is having a sale on Sunday, Feb. 3 and we will be participating in it too. Our products do seem expensive compared to the other worksheet type activities that are listed on TPT; but our products are more than worksheets and allow your students to become authors and illustrators of their own versions of literature while learning basic skills. We have been in business for over 12 years and have yet to come across any unique product like ours. Many other sellers have books to make with children but ours are based on pieces of literature and are not just “skill oriented” pages.

Watch for notices about the sale on Super Sunday!

Hi, Thanks for your interest in our Gingerbread Senses book which contains 5 pages for the children's books (those are the blacklines) and one cover for it as well as two pages of directions and a photo page showing you the finished pages of the student book as we did it.

The wording on each page of the kids' books is like a rebus story (please see the sample image again) with a missing word that the children write in. The students do their own illustrations - we don't give our kids templates to trace because that doesn't make them think, measure, plan, and problem solve.

Instead, we give them squares and rectangles approximately the size they need and show them how to trim off the corners and then give the little points "haircuts!" They create their own circles and ovals which are the two basic shapes for most of the illustrations in our books. As far as placing the shapes in the right spot, the children have to do the thinking of where to put them so that they will have room for the remaining shapes without covering up the lettering. We like to put all the thinking and problem solving onto the children! We also model the page in our books in front of the children and leave it on our chalkboards for them to refer back to.

We have a free document called KinderLit Cutting Directions that you can download at: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Kinderlit/Order:Best-Sellers/Search:cutting%20directions/ If that link doesn't work, do a search on TPT for KinderLit Cutting Directions.

Hi Julie, Thanks for your interest in our KinderLit book, I'm Ready for Kindergarten. Many teachers use it during the first week or so of school and then put it out for Parent Night or Back to School Night. There are only 6 pages in this book - simple to do for the beginning of Kindergarten! I guess only the cover page showed up online so I just uploaded a sample page from the inside of the book.
You will see page 2 that says "I'm ready to build with blocks." The first page is for their name and has a place for them to draw their face. Page 3 says "I'm ready to paint" Page 4 says "I'm ready to learn my letters." Page 5 says "Im ready to count." And page 6 says "I'm ready to make new friends."
There are many ways to illustrate these pages that you'll see in the directions. There is only one missing letter on each page for the children to write since they are too new to copy complete words!
Please contact us again if you have any other questions.

I am trying to respond to your question, but I don't know how t respond. I am new to all of this. Anyway, I LOVE the packet and so thankful for the work you all put into it. I did modify the letters at the bottom of the page so that my kids could practice tracing the letters. I may then add writing lines so that the kids can write their own letters too. At the top of the page I wrote What begins with _____ ? The kids write the letter we are practicing on the line. I am still playing with the packet so I may also add A ________________ begins with _____. in a box below the drawing box so the kids can work on writing. I hope this makes sense to you. Thanks again

Although we have provided pages and directions for 9 books, we recommend that you select only 4 or 5 to include in students' books. Another option is to do the pages as individual projects to hang on a bulletin board for Read Across America day!

Please contact us again if you have any other questions or go to our FAQs page at www.KinderLit.com.

KinderLit  (TpT Seller)
Thanks for your interest in our books! We have included these Eric Carle books into our KinderLit book:
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
The Very Lonely Firefly
The Tiny Seed
The Very Quiet Cricket
The Very Busy Spider
The Grouchy Ladybug
The Mixed-Up Chameleon
Papa, Please Get the Moon For Me
Rooster's Off to See the World

Of course you do not need to do all those pages! We usually do only 5 in the book and one more as the cover. We also have done a sun on the cover because Eric Carle has said that his books all contain the sun and that the stories take place in one day. We do a chart as a whole class on whether the books really do have a sun!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Lisa and Linda have over 60 years combined experience teaching kindergarten in Arizona, Washington, and Massachusetts.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Lisa and Linda love to make books with their students! Using real literature, they have created versions for the children to make so they will have books to read at home. Every page requires the children to write one or two missing words as well as create the illustrations usually with collage. Included in each KinderLit book are a photo page of every finished page in the book, complete directions, and all the reproducible black lines for the student book. Your students too can make their own books to take home!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT
