I am a proud mommy of 3 adorable boys Trevor, Jayden, and Cole. I married my highschool sweetheart and just loving life. I am a 2nd grade teacher at an amazing school and I am so lucky to have awesome students. I enjoy being involved in my son's school as well as the school I teach at. I graduated from Georgian Court University with a Special Education and Elementary Education Certification. I have a Master's in Education with a Guidance certification from GCU also. Just recently I obtained a Supervisor Cert. from Kean University. I hope you enjoy my blog:)
I love doing Author Studies with my students and some of my favorites are Jan Brett, Steven Kellogg, and Eric Carle! That's why I was so excited yesterday when I found a fabulous book at The Christmas Tree Shop. The best part about it was the price...$2.99. Can you believe that?! It will be a great introduction to many author studies. This is how each author in the book is presented.
Check out a classbook cover for Kevin Henkes on TPT. I use this for the cover of a packet while I am doing the author study on him and then I laminate one copy and make a classbook of my students' writing during the study. I also made one for Marc Brown. Click here for an Eric Carle Worksheet that you can use to compare different books that are read during your study.
