As I sit here today, I am really excited and blessed for where the Lord has taken me. Last week, I found out my first book, The Garden in My Mind won the Mom's Choice Award- Silver.
This is so exciting! I love hearing how this book has helped teachers and parents. The other day, one of my teacher friends told me how her students refer to the book whenever they see someone making bad choices whithin their class. As a writer/teacher this is the type of story you hope to hear when you sit down and write a book, but you never really know how it will be accepted. I am hopeful that this book will really help students see what positive behaviors look like and how to generalize them to areas outside of the class. The video below talks more about the books and it's application.
I also created a 48 page teacher's guide to accompany this book. It includes lessons for teaching both academic skills and behavioral skills. I also included resources to implement a behavior management system centered around the concepts within the picture book. To learn more about how to use this within your classroom, head on over to The Unique Classroom and see how Amy is using this within her classroom.
