I was first introduced to Secret Stories a few years back by a team member of mine. A light bulb went off in my head when I saw this program. The creator of this program, Katie Garner, is AMAZING! Secret Stories are ingenious. "What is Secret Stories?" you ask. Let me take the explanation straight from their site since I get so excited when I think about it I don't want to miss anything!

"The SECRET STORIES is a multi-modal, brain-based, teacher ‘bag-of-tricks’ that transforms reading and writing abilities of primary and struggling, intermediate grade learners. Through visual, auditory, and kinesthetic means, the SECRET STORIES activates every learning channel within the learner, and personally connects them to the skills."

This kit includes everything you'll need to effectfively teach Secret Stories to your students.

{Included: teacher's book, audio CD, and color classroom posters}

{Included: teacher's book, audio CD, and color classroom posters}

Secret Stories are a part of everyday life in my classroom. My students constantly use their Secret Stories to read and write words. The little stories with the pictures truly stick in their heads and they really think it's a secret! When I introduce a new story to them, we close our classroom door and whisper. I hold my book like it is TOP SECRET information. This whole program really grabs their attention and makes learning possible! I cannot tell you enough how this has changed the way I teach words to my kids.

So, here's how this amazing classroom kit can be YOURS....
