6 TpT Milestone Teachers
Her tip: “Phonics is an important part of my classroom. Though I enjoy creating meaningful centers and playing games with my students, I also like having something that can be used for morning work, homework, and extra practice. Creating the reading detective packs has really helped my learners. The packs are differentiated so that I can be sure I’m hitting the needs of all of my students.”
Her tip: “This Animals Bundle, which focuses on adaptations, food chains, and habitats, includes lots of fun hands-on materials including games, sorts, flap books, graphic organizers, leveled reading passages, plus assessments, and a word wall. These content rich and differentiated resources will help to support all levels of learners in the class.”
Her tip: “We love using these novel studies in my 3rd grade classroom. My products cover Common Core Standards for 2nd grade through 5th grade. I love that these novel studies are versatile — you can use these studies as a whole or as smaller parts for differentiated instruction or when you are focusing on a specific reading strategy. While reading the book, I use these novel studies as a whole class activity, small group instruction, or as independent work. Sharing and reading with children are perhaps the most enjoyable and rewarding moments of my teaching career and I’m glad to share this joy with you!”
Her tip: “Like all of you, I love seeing my students learning and engaged. My Tens and Ones Mystery Pictures Bundle can be used in so many ways to do just that — use in a sub tub, a math station, as early finisher work, morning work, or even whole class instruction. There are activities in this bundle to use throughout the year.”

In addition to the journal prompts, there are 18 essay topics (6 informational, 6 argumentative, and 6 narrative) complete with the topic sheet/pre-writing organizer, drafting sheets, and a scoring rubric. Your students will love the topics, and you’ll love their writing!”
