Teaching upper grades for 30 years... Grades 4, 5 and 6 Wife and mom Love helping to make teachers' lives easier by creating fun and easy-to-use resources for upper elementary...
I strive to engage students by using turn and talk strategies, partner reading/discussions, and materials such as graphic organizers to get students thinking deeply about their reading. I also believe that throwing in a splash of fun and creativity helps to make classroom learning memorable and enjoyable for both the students and the teacher.
