I taught full-day kindergarten for 14 years and have spent the last 2 years as a kindergarten and first grade strategist working all over my district. I am excited to say that this school year I will be back in my own kindergarten classroom!! While I loved working with kinder and first grade teachers and their students, I missed having a class of my own.
I graduated from Dallas Baptist University in 2008 with a masters in curriculum and instruction. I am currently working on my doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction at the University of North Texas. I hope to one day teach at the university level. I love what I do and want to pass on all that I have learned over the years to fellow teachers and students!
I went back and made the word helper signs into a single page (like Vanessa did) so that children can keep a copy at their seat with them or take them home for a reference. I also added 2 that Vanessa had - Buddy Bob and Elmer Elephant. I went back and made big word helper signs for Buddy Bob and Elmer Elephant too. Email me and I will send you the single sheet document as well as the 2 new big signs. I am still working on creating a book mark like document for students to keep in their books with them. Thanks Vanessa for sharing your reading strategy cards!
