Lori at The K Files has been teaching for nearly 20 years with a focus in the primary grades. As a mother of three boys and a “school mom” for her students, Lori believes the classroom is a “home away from home” and is committed to ensure that her students are loved, engaged and moving forward each day.
Lori considers teaching a form of art and is known to provide a plethora of creative visual supports to help her students thrive and move forward. She has created a variety of resources that encourage students to take ownership of their learning by setting personal and academic goals. She believes that all students CAN!
In fact, she has created the multisensory “Gumball Phonics™” method; a unique color–coded phonics strategy to help young readers and writers DECODE new words, rather than GUESS. Many of her resources listed in her TpT shop incorporate this phonics strategy. You can learn more about it here: Gumball Phonics™.
