October 2017
Kathie Yonemura

I started teaching in a large school district in southern California in 1987 & I’m STILL just as passionate about teaching & learning . . . 30 years later!! Other teachers inspire me: their ideas, lessons, and their classrooms. I love to collaborate and brainstorm with others. I believe in teaching to the whole child, try to engage my students with real world problem solving and helping kids to identify and develop their strengths.

I’m married to a wonderful, supportive husband and we have three daughters. I love to travel, read, and scrapbook.

My Resources

I create Tried and True Teaching Tools in the form of creative and differentiated lesson plans, units, and resources. One of my favorite FREEBIES is my School Supplies Logic Sampler!

Logic is the ability to process information using reasoning, logic, and abstract thinking. Created by Tried and True Teaching Tools, this sampler of logic task cards are great to use at a math center, as a partner activity, or modeled in a small group.

Another one of my favorites is Landforms Photo File
Aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards, this complete set of gorgeous photos of landforms is the perfect supplement for teaching visual vocabulary and California geography! Photographed by Tried and True Teaching Tools, these photos enhance student understanding! Includes information slide for each type of landform. More than just pictures! 
  • Activate schema
  • Create photo dictionaries or vocabulary cards for English learners
  • Create sorting activities and matching games

Tried and True Teaching Tools has many best sellers, but this is a big customer favorite:

Student-authored books convey their knowledge of the California regions, using the rhythmic writing pattern from The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown. Created by Tried and True Teaching Tools, this product includes a graphic organizer to take notes and templates for student books. Knowing they are publishing a book motivates students to write for an audience! CCSS aligned. Rubric & samples included.

Where can you find me?

I love the collaboration of TBOTEMC. Members are encouraged to think of new marketing ideas, ways to connect and support each other. Everyone is positive and helpful. Teacher Talk showcases the wide variety of ideas, lessons, and resources.
