Becoming a Curriculum Author

One of the activities that I have given some time to this summer is writing curriculum.  I have always developed curriculum for my classroom and for my own children, but preparing guides for other people is a different thing.  It has been challenging and I am learning quite a bit.

I started by writing some reading fluency passages that are based on 6th grade history and science topics.  I chose to start there because I found a teacher that was looking for passages and the Academic is a 6th grader, so my efforts will benefit him.  I have posted two packages so far and plan to add more.

I am currently working on a literature unit for a book called Boy of the Painted Cave by Justin Denzel.  I have posted a package that includes the introductory power point and a painting activity. Both highlight prehistoric art and could be used without the book. I am still working on the rest of the unit and will post it soon.

You can find all of my offerings at the Teachers Pay Teachers website.  In fact, TpT is having a back to school sale today and tomorrow.  My things are 20% off as part of the sale. Most other teacher/authors are discounting their products as well.  If you use the promo code: BTS13 you will get an additional 10% off the sale price.
