Thank you for visiting my blog, Spoutin' About 2nd.  My name is Laura Wanke.  This is me with my amazing family.

This is my 10th year teaching.  My first two years I taught first grade in a small private school in Rockford, Illinois. The rest of my career has been spent teaching first and second grade at Pecatonica Elementary School in Pecatonica Illinois.  Next year I will be starting a first/second grade loop, which I am very excited about.  I graduated from Rockford College in 2003 and then again in 2009 with a masters in reading education.

I am new to the world of blogging, so I appreciate any feedback. Please let me know what you like, don't like, or if you would like anything specific.  I love the challenge of creating new lessons and activities.

  1. Hi ,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
