Hello I was wondering do you plan to make more of these for 2nd grade? I use this for morning work and it has been a great resource so far!

On  March 3, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Hi Tessa. I purchased your Open- Ended Reading Response 2nd Grade and it looks wonderful but each time I try to download it it stops printing after the fifth page. I have tried printing this at home, at school and my husband's office and I get the same response. Has anyone else had this problem and what should I do ?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 3, 2013Tessa Maguire answered:
Hi, I'm sorry you're having issues. No, no one else has said that they are. Probably the best way to go about it would be to contact TpT because it must be something technical. Sorry I can't be of more help.
On  January 3, 2013Mosey Posey  (TpT Seller) asked:
I have a question about the 2nd grade open ended question pack. We are in the transition of adopting the CCS. We have adopted the math but I am not as well versed in the Language Arts CCS. I noticed in the first passage it said, "What is the problem?" Does the LA/CCS not use words like conflict, solution? I would like to purchase the packet but try to keep my language consistent. Thank you for answering my questions.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 4, 2013Tessa Maguire answered:
The standards only explicitly say "CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.2.1 Ask and answer such questions as who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate understanding of key details in a text." and "CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.2.3 Describe how characters in a story respond to major events and challenges." They don't clearly address problem or solution in 2nd grade. The standards can be found at www.corestandards.org. Different states have unpacked the standards differently and so we don't have clear information about specific words.
