Share the Wealth- Teacher-Author Spotlight- dannerk

Greetings Friends! A Big HOWDY to all of you.

I hope you have been enjoying these Saturday events. Please remember to leave a comment if you have suggestions or comments about the event OR the featured teacher! WAHOO!

I am so excited to bring you another Share the Wealth Teacher-Author Spotlight. This week it is our pleasure to introduce to you Danerk. This is what she shared about herself with me: "My name is Kristin, and this is my second year teaching. My first year was in 4th, and this year I am teaching 5th. Aside from the obvious rewards and joys of working with children, I love the fact that teaching is never boring and that I can use my creativity and planning skills daily. I opened my TPT store in August and it now contains over 130 products, including Common Core items for various grades, classroom decor, writing prompts, reading prompts, task cards, and so much more! I started blogging soon after, and am working on revamping the blog very soon to be more updated and useful for my readers. I am constantly wowed by the abundance of great work available and created by other teachers, and I am so proud to be a part of such an important and transformative profession."

As you can see, Dannerk is dedicated to sharing quality resources that are geared to meet your needs. AND, as she mentioned, she has over 130 resources in her shop for your browsing pleasure. If that is not enough, she has nearly 400 followers and a 4.0/4.0 rating (from 562 teachers who left feedback).

Speaking of resources, I wanted to share 10 items that Dennerk and I felt would be items of interest for you, our dear readers. Check these out:

As you can clearly see, teachers are finding these resources very useful!

Before we end this awesome adventure, I want to share a product that I have reviewed with you- and one that is currently dannerk's top selling item.

This item is her 120 Common Core Writing Prompt Cards (Bundled Set). 

Currently it is selling for $6.85 (which is down from its usual $10). From reading over the feedback, I can see WHY it is a top selling item. If you have those kids that need extra activities because they finish fast, OR, if you have students you would like to have focus on a specific type of writing, then is the MOST DEFINITELY for you!

Or, if you are a writing teacher, you will love these as well. Such a great collection of prompts at your fingertips. The only downside/negative I could find from feedback and my own observation, was that the cards tend to have smaller print- but, let me assure you, that it is fine and that your kiddos would not have any issue seeing or using this resource! Here are a few pictures of the what you can expect inside!

I love that these are circles and can be added to tongue depressors or kept as fun circle cards that can be used for many various activities. The set includes: 30 informational, 30 creative, 30 persuasive, and 30 narrative writing prompts. Each type is color coded making it even easier to keep track of who has what type of writing prompt. This truly is an amazing resource. I highly recommend it and feel that you won't be disappointed if you choose to purchase it.

Wahoo! What a great post and what a fantastic teacher-author!

Don't forget that you can also find Dennerk on her BLOG!
