Survey and buttons- comment and get one for free!
Happy first day of school! This week I am taking a short break from painting Disappearing Desmond to focus on Abigail Spells, since it is a book I hope will appear in many classrooms this fall.
To that end I am very curious to know where you expert educators out there look for resources to fill out the curriculum in your classes. We authors are always trying to find ways to make our work useful to classrooms and a creative jumping off point for teachers. I'd love to know what your favorite sites are, so that I might be inspired in creating my own curriculum.
SO. I posted this short survey on my blog last week, but thought I might post it here as well to appeal to teachers and educators of all kinds to share your back to school planning.
*If you are a teacher or educator who works with kids, where do you go to research your lesson plans (can include books, web sites, magazines, articles, etc)?
*Are there any sites or other materials that have helped you develop spelling lessons in particular, and teach them effectively?
*Any great online resources that you use to find activities for your kids?
Thanks in advance for the help, I really appreciate it!
In case you're curious, here are some responses I've gotten so far:
Super teacher worksheets
On another note, I am making some little buttons of Abigail for giveaway... which design do you like the best? Place a vote or answer the survey above and I will send you a button when they're done*! Make sure your email address is in the comment, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Giveaway ends 9/15. Only for folks in the US, sorry!
