Share the Wealth- Teacher-Author Spotlight- Liz Kinsinger


Greetings Dear Wealthers!

It is once again time to greet you here on Share the Wealth Saturday. As my student have just finished their final state mandated test today, I can almost start to relax and come in for a semi-successful landing with my class this year. How about you? Are you done testing? Just starting testing? It seems there are crazy testing windows out there.

This week I want to introduce you to a wonderful teacher author, Liz Kinsinger, from "That Classroom". Here is what Liz shared with me, "Hi! My name is Liz and I have been teaching for 18 years in sunny Florida! I love what I do and find myself "forever learning!" to make my instruction current, motivating and relevant. Our class is a cooperative based classroom. Kagan strategies, Differentiated Instruction, and Learning Centers that are integrated with the curriculum define our instruction. Thematic, hands-on, meaningful lessons help to make our day seamless. We work very hard to cultivate a classroom culture that is warm, inviting, active and risk-free. Welcome to 'That Classroom' and our 'Good Stuff'".

18 years is an amazingly long time to be a teacher, and she is still saying things like, "I love what I do!". So that tells you a lot about this fantastic teacher.Liz has so many amazing resources in her store. No, really she does. I have spent time there looking at and over her resources and I can telll you that it is totally worth clicking over to her shop to check it out. Below is a list of 5 paid and 5 free resources from her shop. AND, I am so excited about my new "toy" that gives you the thumb nail view of her resources! WAHOO!

So... spend a few minutes and look them over, you won't regret it!

As you can clearly see, there is some seriously fantastic items worth adding to the wishlist/shopping cart!

If you are like me, I always click on the "feedback" tab before buying. I want to see if other teachers have used this resource and what they think about it. Sometimes it makes me question a resource, but mostly I just use it as a simple measure of usefulness for me. Well, Liz's feedback won't disappoint you in the least. Here, let me show you a few comments from REAL people have acquired her resources and want to share their thoughts:


Primary Wizard  (TpT Seller)

And with a 3.9/4.0 rating, she is right on track with her resources! After all, that score is nothing to baulk at!
SEE! She IS amazing- I told you that at the beginning of this post. Before we end, however, you need to be shown UP CLOSE one of Liz's amazing resources.

I want to share with you Liz's Handwriting for Springtime activity packet! This packet is 25 pages long and comes with a HUGE selection of activities for (K-3) students to enjoy. Not only do the students get to practice their handwriting skills, they also will be able to practice skills such as finding nouns and verbs, and using their art skills to make drawings based on reading comprehension. Below are a few pages from this HUGE packet. Take a peek...





As you can see, there is a great selection or activities, stationery, and clear directions! Remember, this set has 28 pages! That is a lot. At the time of this listing, this item had a 4.0/4.0 rating and was selling for $3.75.
