Sneak Peak at the Cover for the Third eBook in the “Katie’s Farm Adventures” Series~All Proceeds Go Directly to Elementary School to Promote Literacy

"Katie's Horse Adventure" Book III in the "Katie's Farm Adventures" written and illustrated by a wonderful and creative first grade class...who love to write!

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 AdventureKatie’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 @ teachme@unlocktheteacherllc.com or visit our website at www.unlocktheteacher.com

Unlock the Teacher LLC Charity eBooks are Almost at 100 in Sales Since March Promoting Literacy Month

Book II in the "Katie's Adventure" Series~"Katie's Exploring Adventure" written and illustrated by 1st Graders

Good Morning Everyone,

We hope you had a wonderful Memorial weekend with family and friends.  Trisha, Sue and I had some much-needed down time with our families.

As the school year is winding down for many, we wanted to give all of our supporters an amazing update on our eBooks we published in March to promote literacy…where proceeds go directly to designated schools to support their literacy funds.  Our sales are exciting as we are close to reaching 100 books sold.  Thank you!

We are also excited to share that the “Katie’s Adventure” series is now giving our Mysteries of the Beach and Phonics Friends a run for their money in sales.  Katie’s Exploring Adventure written and illustrated by Mrs. McMahon’s 1st grade class is selling in the multiple digits in just two weeks out.

What a wonderful thing for these 1st graders to experience…to see the value in  reading and the whole creative writing process.

In fact, we have been approached by a couple of companies to work with us to create book apps and one company out west that we are watching for a possible future relationship in academic eBook apps…please keep us in your thoughts as we discern the best possible way to promote literacy and to make a difference in the world around us.

Next year will be exciting as we will continue to go into schools to provide  “ePublishing and Writing”  Workshops for our youth and curriculum alignment (Common Core State Standards) assistance to our great educational colleagues around the United States…and possible overseas contracts too 🙂 .

We would love to come to your school to provide writing, ePublishing or Anti-Bullying Workshops for your students and get them excited about  learning, writing, and publishing work and collaborating for a better tomorrow.  For detailed information, please visit our website @ www.unlocktheteacher.com or email us at teachme@unlocktheteacherllc.com or you may email me directly at Denise@unlocktheteacherllc.com

Thank you to all the teachers, students and principles that have invited us into their classrooms and schools this year.  Thank you to all the wonderful readers who send us positive encouragements via WordPress, twitter, our website or facebook…THANK YOU!  If we did not have you to help fill our buckets, we would not be able to do all that we try to do.

May your week be filled with many “a-ha” moments!

Denise
