It was a springboard for the "IditaRead".
Question 2 in the word problems was confusing with Sierra and Callie.. Maybe there's a typo.

Product Questions & Answers

On  January 30, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I have the powerpoint labeled primary. Is there any way I could download the intermediate version?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 30, 2013PowerPoint Maniac answered:
Sure - email me at jjelliott01@hotmail.com
On  March 6, 2012Crystal Stark (TpT Seller) asked:
hi, I purchased your dogsled race unit, it is very nice. I am wondering though, it says there is a choice of powerpoints. Either the primary or intermediate. How do I get a choice? I think I have a primary one, but I would prefer the intermediate, there only seems to be one powerpoint in the package?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 6, 2012PowerPoint Maniac answered:
It should have been there. I just updated it to double check and make sure so please redownload it. The Intermediate has, "This is the intermediate ppt" on the first slide. Hope that helps. If it doesn't work you can email me at jjelliott01@hotmail.com. Thanks!
n/a
On  March 5, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Slide 23 is incorrect. "Alaska became a state in1949." is False. The answer given in the Powerpoint in slide 23 was True.
In slide 3 the Powerpoint stated, "It became the 49th state on January 3rd, 1959."
You might want to correct this.
