Teacher Feature Tuesday featuring Caitlin Veise from Cait's Cool School!

Happy Tuesday! *does happy dance*
This week I'm so happy to introduce you to 
Caitlin Veise from Cait's Cool School

Her posters are literally too cool for school. 

How long have you been TPT'ing?
Since November 2014

What is your most helpful advice for new teachers?
I'm a bit of a newbie myself, but I have quickly learned that the seller's forum is a wealth of information! I've gotten everything from feedback in my store to ideas for how to improve covers and write terms of use to encouragement. Go check out the forum!

What is your most helpful advice for beginning teachers?
Be flexible. Everything is not always going to go by your plan, so be ready to change and adapt. Sometimes the best lessons are the ones you didn't plan!

Any additional tips?
Two things I've found that really keep students engaged and active learners- give them open-ended tasks and let them investigate to find their answer AND give them options. I try to represent different modalities in my options, but with the same overall knowledge presented. For example, students can create a comic strip summary or write a newspaper article. It's a win-win! Students feel like they're in control and get to use their strengths, while I get to see their amazing creative results and how they used what we learned in class.

Fantastic Products

I love her unit My Teacher is Missing!

Such a creative way to tie in literacy with sub plans! So much better than the traditional worksheets. I'm so happy she shared her tips with us this week!
