Welcome!
I want to make your job easier. I specialize in ready-to-use worksheets and activity cards that you can use again and again. Most of my resources are for grades 3-6, but might also work for high second graders or low seventh and eighth graders. Creative and critical thinking skills are my passion and I try to throw them into pretty much everything I create. You can also find lots of great ideas on how to get more higher level thinking into your curriculum on my blog, Minds in Bloom.

A Little About Me
I have over 10 years of elementary teaching experience and have had several years teaching in gifted/talented programs. I also write nonfiction books for children and have over 100 published books. On a personal note, I am sending my first born to college this year and most of what I make selling my teaching resources goes to his tuition.
