Hi Laura,
As I was grading the multiple intelligence quiz (page 59) using the key on page 60, I noticed that questions 5 and 7 are reversed on the key from the way they are on the quiz....After I had graded about half my papers, I realized the error and thought you would want to be notified! Love the packet otherwise - great stuff!!

NO worries on the problem...I just thought you might want to correct it! :)
On  October 16, 2013Laura Candler answered:
Thanks. I'll try to get a new copy online soon so you can download the correction. Sorry it caused you a problem and inconvenienced you.

Hi Laura,
I teach 3rd grade and have been trying to expose my students to the multiple intelligences theory. I know your resource says it's appropriate for grades 4-8 but do you think it could work or be adapted to fit 3rd grade?

Thanks for your great products! I often visit your website and enjoy using your materials! Thanks for all you do for education!

Sincerely,
