She is married with three incredible (that's the adjective she uses) children: two boys, ages 19 and 15, and her "baby" girl who she says is 10 but is going on 16. This is her third year as a TPT seller, and she loves the new friends she has made from the TPT site, blogs and Facebook pages! When she is not teaching (or grading papers), she is usually hiding in a corner with a good book.
Natalie has 78 different resources in her Teachers Pay Teachers store, 15 of which are free. One of those free items is a set of Reading Strategy Posters to be used before, during and after reading. It is a great elementary display to remind students of reading strategies such as words with literary and informational text. It is geared for grades 1-5. I have looked at it and feel it is a quality resource worth downloading.
One of Natalie’s paid resources is a 24 page Novel Study
that will work with any novel! (I like generic resources
that can be used over and over again.) You can use these novel study pages for individual work, as part of literature circles, reader’s workshop or with whole class novels. You can utilize the entire set as a packet or pick and choose what will work best with the particular novel you are using in your classroom.
