A Go Figure Debut for a Cavalier Who Is New!

You are probably wondering how "cavalier" got into today's title. Well, in the "small" world of Teachers Pay Teachers, (it has over 89,000 sellers!) I met someone who grew up in the same little town I did, and even graduated from the same high school (our town only has one).  She graduated five years after I did; so, we really never knew each other; however, we were both Cavaliers; so, hence the title of today's article.
Diane Vogel

Diane is a retired teacher of 40 years. She has taught in a resource as well as a self-contained learning disabilities classroom. In addition she has taught 2nd and 3rd graders in a regular education classroom. Towards the end of her teaching career, she taught in a psychiatric hospital, and concluded her final years with teaching 4th-6th grade gifted students.

Her Teachers Pay Teachers store contains 24 resources, three of which are free.  They include items from many disciplines, including special education and gifted. Her resources for grades K-10 reflect her multi-disciplinary hands-on approach to teaching which incorporates all modalities. 

Free Item
One of Diane's free resources is called Just Ducky and is appropriate for grades 1-3. She claims that most workbooks never contain enough measurement activities; so, this resource can serve as a supplement. In it, students count ducks and measure the length of duck calls. In addition, students are encouraged to write about how measuring with ducks is different than measuring with a ruler.

Only $4.00
Diane's featured resource is entitled Periodic Table Activities which is appropriate for grades 6-10. It is a review activity using the Periodic Table. It consists of seven spelling units, each with an answer key. As an alternative, it might be assigned as homework or as an activity suitable for a substitute teacher. Usually, each activity takes 20-40 minutes to complete depending on the level of your students. Diane has used it with gifted students whom she said were very motivated to see who could spell the longest word using the Periodic Table.


Diane also owns and operates a school supply store, which is up-to-date with the latest trends in education. She attends two buying trips a year which provide her with an exclusive and unique opportunity to interact with all of the educational vendors and to view the newest materials for teachers and their classrooms. GA School Supply (GA stands for Georgia/Alabama) offers a full line of educational materials, teaching supplies, classroom decorations and teaching tools to help your students' learning experience.

If you are having trouble finding a specific item for your classroom, you might check it out. Also take a minute to visit her store and at least download one of her three free resources. While you are there, take the time to rate the resource and maybe even become one of her followers.
