About Dover Publications:
I've been working as a first grade teacher for almost a decade. I know there have been some teachers around longer and have more history with the education system, but even from my perspective, things have changed drastically. I wish I could say it's altered for the better, but then I would be stretching the truth. The implementation of "common core" and the holes in the "no child left behind" bill, make it difficult for teachers to be creative and do what they do best. We are forced to cover material in a specific way. Of course we need a standard curriculum. But we are all individuals-teachers and students. So when it comes to teaching and learning, we are all different.
I used to be able to read stories to my class that were entertaining and taught lessons. Now I simply don't have the time. I am mandated to use only certain materials and everyone is tested within a period of time to make sure everything is covered. So to get around that, I make homework creative and fun. In class, we cover the lessons quickly and do the required homework there. At home, I send educational, but creative and fun materials. I have a catalog of workbooks and then photocopy pages. I order some books from DoverPublications.com. The site has a good selection of activity books that reinforce phonetics and vocabulary. I think their storybook themes could be broader. But, I buy stickers from Dover, too, to give as rewards.
