Seller Spotlight Sunday: Momma with a Teaching Mission

Welcome to my Seller Spotlight Sunday.
Every Sunday on my blog there is a guest post from another fabulous TpT Seller. They will be sharing one free resource from their store, one paid resource from their store and something that they have been up to that week or similar! 

So, don't forget to check back every Sunday or sign up for my email list to get notifications of new sellers!

Up this week is Melanie Ebersole from Momma with a Teaching Mission!

My name is Melanie and I am the teacher-author over at Momma with a Teaching Mission. I am a first grade teacher in Western Maryland. I am finishing up my 3rd year teaching and just about tenured!! WOOHOO! 

I am also the mom to 4 fabulous kids, 2 boys and 2 girls. Their ages range from 11, 8, 6, 2. As you can imagine, I'm a little busy ;) 

I teach in a school where all the students (K-5) are flexibly grouped. This means they are with students that are on their level. Students are not tracked or aren't 'stuck' within one group; as they show growth and progress they are moved into a different class that meets their needs. Students also have 2 different teachers, one for reading/writing/social studies and one for math/science. I teach the lower end of first grade students and I teach reading/writing/social studies. The year prior to starting these flexible groupings, our first grade was completely departmentalized, and you can read more about departmentalizing by clicking HERE.

I don't know about you, but as for me, our last day is June 8th! So in preparation of sending my kiddos off on summer break, I created a pack of resources for them, including 40 printables to help students review the skillls needed in math and literacy for entering 2nd grade! You can find this resource by clicking on the image below!

My last week of school, my kiddos and I spent reflecting. One of my favorite resources, not only because it features Melonheadz cutie kiddos, but also because it's free, is Task Cards to reflect on the year

This works for ages K-5. You can set up SCOOT and have the kiddos get up and move around the room to answer the questions. You can have an open discussion with students. You can do a few questions a day. You can have the students write about their reflective answers! You can make it work for you!!

Visit me on TpT, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest! Happy Summer :D

  1. I love task cards, so the idea to use them as a tool for reflection is excellent! Thanks!
