I am so pleased to have you back for another exciting edition of my Teacher-Author Spotlight. I was looking over my notes last night and I noticed that I started doing Share the Wealth Teacher-Author Spotlights almost 9 months ago! HOLY MOLEY!!! The best part of Share the Wealth is getting to meet and interact with amazing teachers from around the US and world. What a blessing that has been. Today's teacher-author is just as amazing as the rest. Let's get this party started! WAHOO!
Today I am pleased to introduce you to Teacher Tam, from Illinois. When I asked her about herself, this is what she shared:
"I am a part-time kindergarten teacher and a full-time mom to three little ones under 5! I have been teaching for 15 years, with most of them spent teaching a mixed preschool and kindergarten class. I actually started out in another field, but went back for my degree in teaching. It was meant to be! I love the collaboration that takes place on TPT. It is wonderful to be a part of a community of teachers who are always striving to improve themselves professionally."
Well, I am SO glad she went back for her teaching degree. I haven't worked with Teacher Tam, as in the same building, but I have noticed her interactions with her colleagues on Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT) and find her to be a very encouraging and supportive teacher. As I was browsing her TpT shop, I noticed that she definitely knows her stuff when it comes to teaching lower grades. Here, let me show you what I mean:
You will notice that Teacher Tam has offered two free resources for you to enjoy (and you will totally want to check them out!)
Now, some statistics:
-Teacher Tam has the support of over 2,100 teachers who follow her store.
-Teacher Tam has had over 5,700 teachers rate her products and leave her feedback.
-Teacher Tam has a 4.0/4.0 rating! WAHOO!
Okay- ITEM REVIEW TIME:
As I have already mentioned, Teacher Tam ROCKS when it comes to hands-on, interactive activities! Even though I teach 6th grade, I am the father of 6 amazing kiddos (ages 2-12). One of those is a Kindergarten student so I KNOW what makes them tick and what they find engaging and interesting. So, when Teacher Tam asked me to review her Kindergarten Math Common Core Cut-and-Paste Workbook, I KNEW that I could give a very informative opinion.
I will start by giving you a visual tour of several of the 52-page workbook you get!
However, don't just take my word for it, here is what those who have purchased it have to say:
This is a great resource. I have printed and laminated them and put them in our "activity binder". The cut and paste bits were placed in a three ring binder pencil case so they use mac tack (sp?) to adhere them to the laminated page (good for pincer grip practice). Wonderful resource I use daily!

Used these and loved them. Also like the common core math reference at bottom of page.

Great activities to improve number sense, engagement AND fine motor skills! I will be using several activities to supplement my kindergarten RTI group!
