Confetti for Cara Carroll —

She Made the 500K Milestone!

Applause, applause, applause for October Milestone Achievers including… Cara Carroll!

She calls Texas home, has taught for over 12 years, and has enjoyed every one of them. “I absolutely love teaching and can’t imagine doing anything else. God has truly blessed me with the best job in the world… and TpT is the icing on the cake. If I could give any advice to other sellers it would be to stay true to what you know and what you love to create.” 🙂

Common Core and So Much More: Applause for October's Milestone Achievers

2.  Melissa from Ohio is Common Core and So Much More

Try her: Science Interactive Notebook Templates – {187 Foldable Flip Books}

Common Core and So Much More’s tip: “These flip books can be used in a file folder to create a lap book on various science topics, or use them in conjunction with your interactive notebooks. Because most of the flip books are left blank on the inside, it will allow you to fully customize each flip book to whatever curriculum or grade you teach. Students can choose to write definitions, draw pictures, or write examples, which makes it a fantastic tool for differentiation!”

Rockin Resources: Applause for October's Milestone Achievers

6.  Rockin Resources from North Carolina

Try her: Interactive Writing Notebook Grade 4 with ALL Common Core Writing Standards

Rockin Resources’ tip: “Interactive Writing Notebooks are not only engaging for students, but offer such an effective resource. Paragraph writing is the focus for the first month. This will give students a solid understanding of complete sentences, sentence structure, topic sentences, relevant details, and clinchers. Narrative Writing is next where I introduce all of the writing mini-lessons necessary for writing a 5-page paper. It may take several weeks to complete the first essay, but it is worth every minute! It gives students a foundation for the year.

Once all of the mini-lessons are introduced, students may refer back to them when working on different writing pieces. Teachers can also refer back to these lessons and add a few lessons to fit the next assignment. In my class, we move from Narrative to Opinion to Informational Writing. It doesn’t take nearly as long to complete essays after the first one is completed.”


Teacher Addict: Applause for October's Milestone Achievers

7.  Teacher Addict from North Carolina

Try her: 4th Grade Daily Math Morning Work Whole Year Practice All Common Core

Teacher Addict’s tip: “I think it is very important to continually review and preview math concepts throughout the year. My morning work products (2nd grade — 5th grade) offer a spiral review to help you reach all of the Common Core on a continual basis so that you can see how your students are progressing week to week. They also offer a challenge problem for your more advanced learners, and each week conveniently fits on one page! These are offered for the whole year, by semester, or by quarter. I use this every day myself, and it is by far my favorite product I have created!”
