Being a teacher can be so isolating sometimes- it’s you, in your classroom, making it work. Today I’m writing to feature a teacher friend of mine who you may not know yet!
I know for me, it feels amazing when someone recognizes the hard work I put into my job- so today, I want to introduce you to Deniece from This Little Piggy Reads!
And of course, since she’s a star, I want to feature three of her “greatest hits!”
I loved Deniece’s post about multiple meaning words!
What do drawing pictures, plastic Easter eggs, and Round-the-Room all have in common?
They were ALL featured in this post in a way that works even for those upper elementary kids who are “too cool” for everything.

So along those lines… I love Deniece’s Multiple Meaning Words pack! She really has a knack for making skills interactive in a creative way and I love the variety in this pack.
I love that the activities can also be used independently in a literacy center, or as whole group lessons. That variety becomes important, especially as test time comes up and I like to do test review centers based on what each group of kids need.
There are also some differentiated puzzles, which is perfect for making sure that ALL of your kids get what they really need to master the concepts.
The pack is both TEKS and CCSS-aligned, too! You can pick it up here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Multiple-Meaning-Words-CCSS-and-TEKS-Aligned-STAAR-Style-Qs-637760
Completely, and totally, in love with these fonts. I just recently downloaded them, and they are so great for adding a little personality to my work- and did I mention FREE fonts?
You can find these AND lots of other free fonts in her TpT store here.
So, have I convinced you yet?
Hop over and check out Deniece’s blog on Bloglovin, or look through a few more teacher features and find some new friends to follow. Hope you are having a great weekend!
