I teach to meet the needs of all of my students. I work hard to incorporate all learning styles. The use of music and movement is a big part of academics in our kindergarten classroom. :)

I've been creating crafts for my kiddos throughout my teaching career. I opened my TPT store in January of 2014, and I've been absolutely hooked ever since! I create crafts and craftivities for every theme. I truly feel like TPT has made me a better teacher. I plan ahead and gain many ideas and feedback here. Why crafts? 1. Crafts are fun for kids, of course! Remember that creating is about the process and releasing creative energy. Allow your child the fine motor experience of cutting and gluing as you teach them how to use crafting tools. 2. Crafts make cute decorations for your refrigerator! Who doesn't love an adorable handmade craft?! 3. As kids make crafts, they also make connections to the concepts they've learned about the subject.
