Product Questions & Answers

On  July 29, 2013Stacy Jacobson (TpT Seller) asked:
This unit says "grade 3", but your first description says reading workshop lessons for grade 5. Is that correct?

On  July 29, 2013Jen Bengel answered:
Thank you so much for pointing this out! I will fix it as soon as I get Internet working in my new home (kinda hard to do on my iPhone:). It is the third grade unit. I just need to change the description:)
Best wishes!

On  April 27, 2013Jamie Sears (TpT Seller) asked:
My district wants formal assessments to prove that students are using text to find evidence, can identify facts and opinions, understand the relationship between cause and effect, understand sequence and recognize author's purpose. I will be excited to see what your assessments look like!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 27, 2013Jen Bengel answered:
Thanks Jamie! I am starting with my launching the workshops unit. I have tons of ideas. I'm thinking graphic organizers and strategy specific observational forms for reading. For writing, I'm looking into prewriting planning pages, draft papers, and rubrics galore. I am excited to get them out but I want to take the time to make them the best I can. My goal is to have the additional resource packets available for every unit by the end of the summer.
Thanks for your patience:)

Hi There.
This looks wonderful for me to use for my introductory Italian classes. I am wondering if the difficulty level would be appropriate for them if I translate it to Italian. Could I maybe see a legible sample? The thumbnails are blurry.

Sure! You can click on the link that says 'download preview' to get a sample of over 30 pages for free. Thanks! Jen
On  February 23, 2013Jamie Sears (TpT Seller) asked:
I am in love with these reading/writing workshop lessons! I really want to implement them next year in place of our reading anthology. My question to you is-What type of reading assessments do you give to go along with your units? Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  February 24, 2013Jen Bengel answered:
Thank you so much for the sweet words:) As far as assessments, I often grade their reader's notebooks as a daily grade to their responses. Sometimes I have them write their responses to what I ask them to do independently on a thinkmark and collect them for grades. For writing, I often collect their notebooks and grade their work at each step of the writing process. I make a rubric based on a few of the main lessons I taught that I expect students to include in their final writing piece. I'm so glad you asked me this because I am in the prewriting stages of creating assessment packets for each of the units! I would love your feedback on what you would like included. I am planning to include things like: daily observation grading sheets, assessment rubrics for the writing process, and assessment rubrics for the final writing piece. Thank you so much for asking!!
