I like to think of our Milestone Achievers as comparable to Oscar winners. We give props to actors for doing a top notch job, why not give props to teachers who’re doing even more by dedicating their lives to helping others?

Please join me in a standing ovation to congratulate the first 5 of November’s Notable Milestone Achievers!

1.  Chicago, Illinois is home to Teacher Tam

Try her: Kindergarten Math Common Core Cut-and-Glue Workbook

Her tip: “I have workbooks for grades K to 2. Each workbook covers ALL of the Common Core Standards for math in the target grade! I love them because students can practice their fine motor and academic skills at the same time. Plus, they are great for students who are reluctant writers.”

3.  From Florida, Andrea Knight

Try her: Student Data Graphs, Goal-Setting, and Self-Reflection Sheets {K-2}

Her tip: “As a teacher, I have to collect a lot of data, but I love how these age-appropriate graphs empower young children to monitor their own growth and set goals for future successes. I love letting students share their goals and data during parent-teacher conferences… they really take ownership of the process!”

Try her: Forms of Energy BUNDLE PACK!!! {PowerPoint, Build the Sentence, Sorting Cards}

Her tip: “I love using real pictures in science and so do my students! I think using real pictures brings science to life and helps students associate what they’re learning in the classroom to their own real world experiences. These Forms of Energy real picture sorting cards and matching interactive PowerPoint brings Forms of Energy alive! It also includes recording sheets that make the cards perfect for your Science Center!”

5.  Jackie Albright and Kylene Turner from California are JK Curriculum Connection

Try their: Syllables! Syllable Sally Singalbe! {CCSS}

Their tip: “‘Syllable Sally’ is an original Singable (new lyrics set to a familiar tune) using movement and music that introduces syllabication. Use the Syllable sorting cards and mats along with the other included activities. We LOVE to create Singables that help students learn. Each one includes teaching resources and activities that reinforce targeted skills. For all of you who love to sing but think you can’t, we’re adding ‘mini-movies’ to go with all our Singables!”
