Featured Seller- Kris McWilliams

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Kris McWilliams, I am a certified K-5th Grade teacher in Georgia, but I am currently living in Germany.  My husband recently retired after 23 years in the Army and we decided to move to Germany for an employment opportunity.  I have taught both 4th and 5th Grade, currently I am working as a substitute K-5th Grade teacher at the Dodea school on post and I also work part time teaching adults through a continuing education program.

I have been creating products for teachers since 2013.  I have a background in digital design and love combining my love of teaching with creating digital designs!

What do you like best about teaching?

My favorite part about teaching is when I witness a student having that “lightbulb moment”.  Seeing a child finally grasp a concept makes me remember why I got into teaching in the first place!

Describe your favorite TpT product.

My favorite TpT product is probably my Book Clubs Elementary Starter Set.  This was the first TpT product I created.


What advice would you give to someone who may want to become a seller at Teachers Pay Teachers?

Take your time creating products.  It’s easy to get excited about a product and rush to put it on your store.  I sometimes have to tell myself to slow down and make sure that I am creating the best possible product for my buyers.

What have you done or hope to do with your TpT earnings?

When I am teaching full-time, my TpT earning usually go right back into my classroom!  Right now, I save up my earning to use on travel while we are living overseas.

Wuthering Heights Student Workbook

Product Description

Wuthering Heights Student Workbook contains everything a teacher needs to teach Bronte’s novel. Instead of the boring question and answer format, the Student Workbook prompts students’ ideas about characters, asks them to comment on significant quotes, and to notice some of the essential techniques used by the author such as symbolism, allusions, themes, etc. in each of the chapters. I have created this resource for my own classes, and students love the meaningful format. Instead of writing information about themes, symbolism, characterization, etc. on separate sheets apart from the chapter questions, everything is integrated in a simplified way.

In addition, a comprehensive answer key is also provided for the teacher. You now have all of the flexibility needed for your lesson plans with all of the work provided for you.

More specifically, the Student Workbook contains work on (42 activity pages):

· Important information from each chapter

· Setting description and symbolism

· Characterization (you can see the characters develop as the students’ read)

· Gothic elements

· Symbolism

· Themes

· Supernatural occurrences

· Significant quotes

· Narration

· Allusions

· Sociogram (to show characters’ relationships)

· Inferencing questions to further students’ understanding

· Family tree (to help students remember who is who)

· Conflicts

· Literary techniques used by the author

· Characterization chart

Please see the product preview for more information.

This resource includes 84 pages in total. Please see the preview for further details.
