Hi, there are several typos or wrong dates, is it Newbery or Newbury. Is it 2003 or 2004 for The Tale of Despereaux.
How about an answer key?
Besides that I love your packet and so do the students.
January 13, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
A Series of 3rd Grade Events
Thank you for catching the typo on "Newbery" in the Author Quiz. It is now fixed. You can go back and re-download the PDF. As for the dates, The Tale of Despereux was written and published in 2003, and the Newbery Prize was awarded in 2004. I added the date "2004" before Newbery Prize (I must have inadvertently left the date out). The answer key is on p. 46. I put all of the answer keys at the end to make it easier to print out what you were actually going to distribute to the students first. You mentioned several typos, but the "Newbery" one is the only one that I saw. If there are any other typos or corrections, please let me know. My aim is to offer a quality product free of errors. I am glad you and your students are enjoying the packet.

Thanks for answering my question...so are there just 5 vocabulary words for the chapter sections?
January 7, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
A Series of 3rd Grade Events
Yes, there are 5 vocabulary words and comprehension questions for each section, and there are a total of 5 sections. There are also other activities to go with the book as well including writing prompts for each section. You can look at the ratings and comments or this product if you click on the product and then go to the Ratings & Comments tab.
Thanks,

Hi. I'm interested in your james and the giant peach pack, but I was wondering if I could see some samples of the vocabulary lists...
January 7, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
A Series of 3rd Grade Events
Sure, here are examples from the first tow sets of chapters. Chapters 1-8: peculiar, spectacles, burrowed, blossom, and shilling. Chapters 9-16: jagged, famished, gossamer, desolate, and colossal. The answer keys tell you which page each word is located on and gives you a definition for each word. In addition to the vocabulary, there are also 5 comprehension questions for each set of Chapters. I hope this helps!

Are the Gingerbread man sequencing strips from the story. Where the students have to read the strip and determine what happened first, second, third, etc. in the story?
October 23, 2013 Report inappropriate comment

Yes, the sequencing strips are from the story and students have to determine the sequence by looking at clue words such as next, so, after that, then, finally, etc... They glue the strips in the correct order, and there is an answer key. Thank you for your inquiry!

I would think so. The book is Grade Level Equivalent: 5.9. Guided Reading Level: R. Age: 9-12. In 3rd or 4th, I would use it for a read aloud, but for 5th or 6th, I would recommend using it for a literature circle or as a read aloud at the beginning of the school year, since the reading level is 5.9.

Well Amanda, the reason is I goofed. I put the correct words in the answer document, but forgot to copy them into the student sheet.

If you purchased a PDF and it is blurry after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry, that's because you are still opening it with Preview! This is the message that from TpT when you go to download.

I did not take it as a negative against the unit. I was just concerned that you were not going to be able to use most of the unit. I know how tight money is, especially for us teachers, and I would hate to think that you paid for something you weren't going to be able to use. It was very sweet of you to let me know that my description was not misleading and that you will be able to use it later. I really take pride in my products, and I want them to be useful to teachers.

I have heard of this happening before if you are using a Mac. You need to make sure that your are choosing Adobe Acrobat to open the file. If you are using a Mac, it doesn't automatically choose Adobe to open it. If you still have further problems, let me know and I will contact the TpT team to see what else we can do!
Thanks,
Patti:)

Hi! I saw your post on the thread about TPT milestones asking if I had advice for getting that first milestone. I think your store looks great! I think I got "lucky" because I am marketing primarily to 5th grade teachers and I know, as a 5th grade teacher, I usually wind up getting items that are really for 3rd-4th. I know I will have even more sales if I branch out and create items that span many grade levels. But, I really wanted to stay true to my grade level and give them exactly what they need. Also, I got bit by the Common Core bug and making products specifically aligned to the standards has been awesome for my sales as well.

Thanks for responding! I think I will probably have to look into the Common Core. Our district has not adopted it yet, but I'm sure it won't be long. From what I've seen and heard, it seems to follow our TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills). Like you, I mainly create items for the grade I teach, 3rd grade, because that's what I know and I use them in my class. Congratulations on your success and thank you for the Common Core tip!

I wanted to let you know that I really like your movie theme class set. I've printed many of the pages for my classroom. The boy name plate is missing the bottom writing line. I thought others might find it helpful if this is fixed. Thanks so much!

Oh no Janelle! Can you believe I even printed these out for my own classroom and didn't notice? I am so glad you caught this mistake. When I went back to fix it, I found out that somehow the filmstrip piece moved around and the line was underneath it. Please go back and re-download the fixed item. I'm so sorry you already printed it out. I think I missed it because the film strip was straight at the top. Please email me @ aseriesof3rdgradeevents at yahoo dot com and I will see about sending you a little something for catching this error!
Thanks!

Do you know if there is a way to print only the blank student pages? I wanted to make each student a packet using ALL of the pages but want to print front back to save paper and do not want to print the answer key.

I usually print out the pages individually on my printer and then do the back to back on a copier, so I didn't think about putting the answer keys all at the end. It's a quick fix. I will place them at the end and then re-post. You should be able to download the revised product if you go to your purchases. Check back this evening. I should have it up by then!

I'm trying to Download this and it says it is free, yet I cannot download it! Please help!

I'm not sure where it said it was free. I have never offered this item for free. Maybe it was a glitch? I have checked my store and it is not free, but it is on sale for $3.20. Sorry for the mix up.

Tiffany Messer  (TpT Seller) re: Under Construction Theme Class Set: Kids at Work
Hi there! Thank you so much for your construction themed items. I just downloaded the "Mr. Fix It" and "Mrs. Fix It" signs. I was wondering if you could change the "Mrs. Fix It" sign to "Miss Fix It" for me? Since my students aren't married, I call them "Mr." and "Miss" and would like to keep that same theme for the signs. Is this possible? I would appreciate it very much!

If you could email me @ aseriesof3rdgradeevents@yahoo.com, I will see what I can do. The Mr. Fix It and Mrs. Fix It are actually clip art, but maybe I can paste a text box over the Mrs. and change it to Miss. Once I come up with something, I can email you the PDF and you can see what you think. It might take me a few days as I am at the hospital with my daughter. She should be out by this weekend.
Thanks,
Patti

Are there cover pages for girls and boys?

The cover has a teacher, a girl, and a boy, so there is only one cover.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 3rd grade for 10 years and this year I'm moving to 2nd. I really love what I do and I also love creating new activities and lessons to share with other teachers on TpT. It keeps my creative juices flowing and keeps me on my toes!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to use lots of hands-on activities and I try to make learning fun. I also take a personal interest in my students and what is going on in their lives. They often call me "mama" by mistake.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Notes, cards, and pictures from my students that say, "You are the best!"

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelors of Marketing from Texas Tech University and a Masters in Education from Southwest Texas State University (now known as Texas State).

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am married and have one beautiful daughter. I was in retail for 22 years prior to teaching. It took me a while to find my true calling, teaching. I love teaching and I especially love reading.
