On  January 8, 2014,  Leah Z. asked:
My kiddos are loving this unit! Polar bears actually don't have white fur. The fur is transparent and reflects light and just looks white. I just didn't use page 60 when I shared the book with my students, but you might want to change it since it's such an interesting fact about polar bears. Thank you for all of your great units!

Thanks so much! I will make those changes as soon as possible. I also plan to purchase some real photos and totally redo the entire unit sometime in the fall. Thanks!

On  February 10, 2014Deanna Jump answered:
Hi There, So sorry! That file is on my computer that died and I didn't realize that I only have the pdf version. So sorry! I will be completely redoing the entire unit as soon as I get a chance and I will add both options in the unit. I'm also going to add a lot of real photographs to the unit. I know that won't help for this year but at least you know it is coming for next year! Thanks!

Does this lesson pack correspond to the CCGPS standards? If so, is this for Unit 3 or Unit 4? Also is this for K, 1st or 2nd? Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 3, 2013Deanna Jump answered:
All of my units match the standards. I teach in Georgia. It is a nonfiction unit of study. It works for K, 1st or 2nd. It can easily be differentiated. I use it with my Kindergarten and First grade students and I've had many friends use it with their second graders.
Thanks!

On  December 1, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Could you correct the page in the walrus book that says "Walruses use their tusks for protection..."? The Fun Fact section should read "A walrus' tusks never stop growing" instead of "A walruses tusks never stop growing..." as I believe you are trying to say the tusk of a walrus never stops growing thus using the possessive form of the word walrus instead of using the plural form of the word walrus (walruses). Thanks so much!

Hi Deanna-
I love your products that I have purchased. I was wondering if you could tell me what Kinder Core Standard you link to your making inferences with Wilbur in Tooth Trouble? I would love to do this for one of my informal observations next week. If you could let me know that would be great!

Thank you for all of your hard work!

I am thinking of using unit for second grade...is the material appropriate or are too many of the pages too easy. Just wondering...
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 19, 2012Deanna Jump answered:
Very appropriate. Several second grade teachers have used it. All of the materials are differentiated to meet a variety of learning levels.
On  January 16, 2012Michelle Hannings (TpT Seller) asked:
Do you have a picture or template to see for the polar bear glyph? You gave the measurements in the packet (I bought it), but I am too visual to picture it.

My email is michelle.hannings@iasmyrna.org if you don't want to release it to the public. I thought bought asking on your blog, but this might be a more efficent way. Thanks in advance.

Hey Michelle, The glyph looks exactly like the polar bear chart. It will just be a little smaller. There are a few pictures in the unit. :)
