We love going into schools to work with teachers and students. This year, we have had great experiences working with talented educators wanting to be ahead of the pack and correlate their curriculum to the Common Core State Standards; one year ahead of the CCSSI criteria set. In fact, the teachers we worked with this year were so excited about the Common Core State Standards, that they not only correlated the Math as expected (one year ahead of schedule) but the ELA as well. Thank you to all the educators who allowed us to work with them and be apart of the positive synergistic curriculum change for our children, our future!

With this said, out of all of our workshops conducted in schools this past year, from “How to ePublish for Teens” to “Writing Workshops for grades 1-5”, we had so much fun with the OLQM First Grade Class. We enjoyed each and every workshop and all the excitement that the students brought, specially the teens so excited to learn how to use their writing to benefit their college future.
OLQM was the recipient of Unlock the Teacher LLC’s first donated eBook (“Katie’s Farm Adventures“) for the 2010/2011 school year.
The first grade class explained how they were so excited about the book, that they wanted to write another adventure for Katie. Since January 2011, this first grade class has not only written and illustrated one adventure for Katie, but two”
Katie’s Exploring Adventure and Katie’s Horse Adventure. Katie’s Exploring Adventure has received great review(s) from other educators and Katie’s Horse Adventure is due to be published with Barnes and Noble.com by the end of the month.
Unlock the Teacher LLC is thrilled to be a part of this amazing experience and look forward to writing and donating more of our own work to new elementary schools in the upcoming 2011/2012 school year.
On behalf of all the students who will benefit from your eBook purchase, we thank you for promoting literacy!
If your school would like to receive one of our donated eBooks next school year or would like to participate in one of the many workshops we offer, please feel free to email us @ firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website at www.unlocktheteacher.com
