Do you have a specific format for using the "are", "have", "can" writing activities? Do the students fill in one word on each line. Is there a follow up?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 19, 2012Cara Carroll answered:
The tree map is a thinking map used to help classify things and ideas. I use them all the time to help the kids organize their thoughts/ideas/learning and categorize them into nouns/verbs/adjectives. I usually have the kids use one or two words to complete these. They typically use their tree maps to help them write about that particular topic :)

OK, I downloaded your unit again. The corrections to the Place Value Kites are there, but still no recording sheet for the contractions activity like you promised and advertised in your original draft. What gives? :-(

On  March 15, 2012Cara Carroll answered:
I honestly have no clue why you're having problems downloading. I've checked it again and again and when I pull it up, it's there. I uploaded the revised version last week. I'm sorry you're experiencing difficulties. I can send you the updated packet personally if you'd like. You can email me at thefirstgradeparade@gmail.com and I'll be happy to send one to you. THanks!

I would appreciate your answer in regard to my question 2/23/12....I am missing a "Rainbow Contractions" recording sheet. Also, I would like you to correct an error on one of your Place Value Kites. The expanded notation on one of the bows does not match correctly. I have not yet left feedback because the overall quality of your product is very good. I was hoping you would get back to me so I could continue to leave the highest possible feedback. Thank you!

On  March 4, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Cara,
really getting excited about centers once again because I love your blog and downloads. Worked on getting St. Patrick centers done this weekend and will get onto others this week. Can you tell me if their is a corresponding "Somewhere, Over the Rainbow" recording sheet for the contractions? Not sure if it was omitted or use a makeshift kite sheet....
Thoughts?
