This was my first year teaching Journeys. Your packet got me through some really stressful days! It is now clear to see that the kids do need to get up, practice the skill, discuss it, then we can come back to the rug to learn the next idea. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! I will be purchasing more.
Thank you so much for such a sweet comment. I had a very "rough" Monday and received your comment during my plan time. It helped change around my mood a little bit:) I am so glad that my resources are helpful to you, especially in your first year of teaching Journeys. I struggled using the program my first year, which is the reason behind the units!
Thank you! However, for 56 pages (and 35 pages for Lesson 2) it's too expensive too keep up with and I only used part of it. However, it did give me ideas of what I could do with my kiddos. However, I know teachers who would love this! I am still passing on the link of where they can purchase this!
Thank you for your purchase. Only 6 more stories to create and then all of 2nd grade Journeys units will be completed!

Thank you! I haven't had the opportunity to use it yet because I've gotten it so late in the year. Please let me know when the errors have been fixed so I can download the repaired pages. Thanks again!

We have just adopted Journeys so I was excited to see the package to go along with the series! Love the cute graphics and multiple activities. There are a couple of errors that I thought you might want to fix. On p.7 #2 is missing an apostrophe in sister's, and #7 might be better as "A dog wears a collar around its neck." On p.14 #2 the word "list" should be deleted so it can be filled in the blank. Also the word "fix" should be in the word box instead of "jam." On page 15 change the word "store" to "story" in the directions. On p.31 the directions might be more clear as "Write four complete sentences with at least one of the above words in each." Or maybe you intended that to be one sentence using four of the listed words. If so, I wouldn't number the lines. On p. 42 "it's" is listed twice. Other options might be they're or we're. On p. 46 I'd love to have you add to the predicate definition-"Tells what the subject does or did, is or was." Sentences like "She is nice." are hard to see action in, but the predicate is there. : ) Thanks for all your hard work on this!!
Thank you for your feedback! Wow, no one else found these errors! I did fix a few errors I noticed before, and may not have uploaded the new version on here! Once I get a chance I will get them fixed and uploaded for you to re-download! It will notify you once I do this for your future use.
This was the first unit I made or item I posted on TPT and I really had no idea what I was doing:) Each unit has got better and better, with less errors!
Is there any way you can email me this file? It gives me the wierdest pages after page 15. It opens the PDF file fine on my screen, but for some odd reason, isn't printing correctly. I have no clue as to what the problem could be. Any help?
Have you updated your adobe reader? Please contact teacherspayteachers for further help. I am unable to send files through email due to the size. They will be able to send you the file, however, I just downloaded the file on my school computer and had no problems on any pages.
