We love making books with kindergartners for all areas of curriculum rather than doing worksheets and they love taking them home to read over and over! We have over 60 years combined experience in Arizona, Washington, and Massachusetts! We have traveled around the country exhibiting and presenting at kindergarten conferences. Lisa is still teaching in Phoenix and Linda has retired and moved to Georgia to be close to her grandchildren.
We're passionate about making books with students! Using real literature, we 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!
We were honored as excellent kindergarten teachers by the Washington Elementary School Board in Phoenix, AZ. Lisa was selected as an Office Max "A Day Made Better" in 2010 and is a Lamp of Learning winner in 2012 in our school district.
Linda graduated from the University of Delaware and Lisa from Washington State University. We have many graduate credit hours from colleges and universities in Arizona and Massachusetts.
