Wow! These are beautiful and exactly the type of thing that I am looking for. However, I am looking for literacy icons. Independent reading, Read to a friend, iPad/technology center, cd listening center, writing center, big book center, reading journal, word work center. Would you have time for more art such as these?? Also curious, how long does it generally take you?
August 15, 2013 Report inappropriate comment

Pamela Kennedy  (TpT Seller)
Hello Lizzy,
Thanks so much for contacting me; I am delighted to expand the schedule icon repertoire as needed. I can envision most of the icons that might work with your literacy center ideas, though I don't include people in them, so Read to a Friend might just be two books instead of one. Something like that. There is already an icon for Writing; will that work? How about the Spelling icon? Would that work for your Word Work center? Are your reading journals created from composition books?
It takes about an hour to create an icon: research; pencil sketch; ink; details; scan as black & white; add color; rescan as color icon. My husband is a good guy: he posts the items for me.
In any case, I will get back to the drawing board and keep you posted!

Thanks, Pamela! Intervention-Enrichment-Switcheroos...it's a time where kids swap classrooms for ability grouping in math or reading/language arts. We do this K-5 in our district, and I am sure others do as well. I am not sure what kind of icon would work. Maybe kids walking between classrooms with books? Oh dear...this is hard to iconize!

How about adding:

Language Arts

Thanks for considering!

Thank you for your note!
I was just thinking about any new icons that my classroom schedule might need for the upcoming school year, and I was at a loss. Not half an hour later, you send along your ideas. Well done.
I have to visualize what concepts like, "Enrichment" and "Intervention" represent... If you have a notion as to what an ideal icon would entail, please share. Class Meeting is already available, as we have one every Friday afternoon. Other than that, I will begin the design process.

Thanks again!

Hi Pamela

I am wondering if TPT sellers can include one of your drawings in their work with full acknowledgement?

Perhaps I could just hyperlink to your TPT shop for your chameleons art work...I am currently creating a resource around chameleons and that would further promote your work...no worries if it is not appropriate.

Hello Kylie,

I would appreciate it if you would hyperlink to my chameleon illustration through your resource. You could include a small, low resolution icon to scroll over as long as no one would be able to print directly from it.

Thanks for thinking of me!

Your schedule clipart is amazing. You could bundle all the images together as a set. Also, you have such a realistic look to your clipart, you would be great at creating upper grade clipart. There is such a need for it.

Thank you, Jennifer! There is currently a color set of 34 of icons (on sale today & Monday) as well as a black and white set. I am working on animal outlines specifically for a shadow puppet unit, but they could be used in many different ways. Next up, I will definitely take your suggestion and begin creating broader sets with upper grades in mind. Feel free to provide a list of clip art you would like available. Best wishes!

Hi Pamela. I was just viewing your schedule icons that Drew forwarded on Wiggio. We took the CHAMPS class together - I am a friend of Paul Colvin. I spoke to you in the garden at Marshall about Lewis.... I really love the icons and want to purchase. How will I know if I have the right application for a "condensed zip file" before I order them? I have a Mac Book Pro. I'm not so savvy on the computer. I didn't know about this website! Looks cool!

Perhaps Drew will bring us together in a future workshop again.

That sounds like it would require a well-organized individual to balance such talents, but I encourage you to follow your dreams. I started with a book called The Artist's Market, and then targeted my clients through their specific needs. Perhaps you would find the same publication helpful.
Best of luck!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

In 1990 BC (Before Children), my husband and I founded an art company specializing in high-grade commercial photography, and pen & ink illustration. I was the illustrator, creating detailed designs by hand. National card companies turned my pieces into greeting cards, stationery, and wrapping paper, and sold them throughout the US. By 1995, I was able to keep up some of the work as a stay-at-home mom, but my priorities shifted to childcare. In 2001, I entered the world of elementary school along with my two children. Beginning as a parent volunteer in the classrooms, I was then elected as Co-President of our PTA. The next year, the principal hired me as a temporary librarian for four hours a week. The following year, I became an educational assistant for eight hours a week; the next year, 16 hours; the year after that, 32 hours. At that point, my principal sat me down and stated that he felt I ought to get my master's degree in teaching. I balked. I was content with my position. I believed I was too old to start something new that would require such a commitment of time, money, and energy. In 2008, budget cuts mandated that many educational assistant positions be cut. I was one of those individuals. Thankfully, my principal was able to place me as a para-educator in our special education department. He sat me down one more time, and asked me, “Where do you see yourself in five years? Will you still be happy even though you won’t be in charge of your own classroom?” I mulled that over for a very long time. I decided to return to graduate school to obtain my degree. I entered an accelerated program in order to complete the work in 18 months. I doubled-up my course load and was able to graduate within a year. For the summer of 2010, I taught kindergarten in a district program where Scott Foresman curriculum was used in hopes of getting struggling students up to benchmark. That fall, my principal hired me to teach kindergarten, and for the first time, I had my very own classroom. It was a thrilling experience. I delved back into my art. I incorporated a great many drawings for wall displays, art lessons, and Work Time Centers. In 2011, my principal asked me to move up to third grade. I was excited to take the challenge. Once again, this afforded me the opportunity to I design more new pieces for my class. I hope that you will find something that works for you and your students. If you don’t see anything you like, feel free to ask for something specific. It might just be a piece of work I’ve been hankering to create.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I run a highly-structured, uncluttered, organized classroom. Each morning, I greet students at the door with a handshake or a hug. Our days begin with a Work Slide posted using the document camera. Slides follow the same pattern each week, so children know exactly what to do to be independent and successful. I use labeled popsicle sticks in order to call on children randomly so that a greater percentage of the class is engaged. The classroom has a low table for those six who want to sit on carpet squares on the floor. There are three classic school tables that seat six each. Seven metal chairs have been replaced by Hokki stools, on which children can wiggle and move while remaining seated. I have a tall table where five children can stand and work, and a standing work station designed for one individual. Each Friday, after our room clean and class meeting, I pull sticks so that students may choose their spot for the upcoming week. I use labeled popsicle sticks in order to call on children randomly so that a greater percentage of the class is engaged. Students use dry erase boards to respond to math questions and practice vocabulary. We take a movement break at least once every twenty minutes. I sing instructions. I don’t mind being silly.
