Jessie A. re: My Side of the Mountain Unit Plans and attachments
I am really interested in using this for my class, but I would like some more info on what it all entails before I purchase it. What comprehension skills are covered? Are their daily vocabulary activities? Are the extra activities cross-curricular or ELA? Our administration is pretty strict on keeping reading content meaningful and not padded with a lot of "fluff".

Buyer re: 4th Grade Imagine it! Unit 3 Supplemental Materials
I THINK this is just what I am looking for! Are the questions with the stories mostly reasoning questions or are they knowledge questions? Just about every question that comes with the series are knowledge! I am looking for multiple choice questions that are reasoning! I am responsible for Units 3 and 4!

Hi! I just bought the Sign of the Beaver Power Point, but I can't seem to access it. It downloads onto my computer as a word doc full of gobbledy-gook. Any idea how to spell that? Anyway, any tips? Thanks!

Why are there blank pages? When I print there are two themes per page. The top one looks good but the second them on the page uses less space at the bottom. Then the next page is blank. It shows this exact thing when I download and view.
You list a total of 17 pages but 8 are blank. Can you fix it?
Thank you!

It'se been updated, you should recieve an email to let you know. You should be able to re-download the file from your purchases page. The journal was something that the students made, and responded to the questions in the plans, it was more or less a writing journal (just blank pages covered with construction paper). I hope you find the revisions helpful.

Hello,
I am really hoping you get this soon! I have been assigned to fifth grade and it is all new curriculum for me. I purchased your unit on My Side of the mountain. In the lesson plans- which are awesome- there is reference to vocabulary quizzes, comprehension quizzes and journal pages. I cannot seem to find them anywhere. Can you help me?
thanks

Ok it is me again...sorry!

I will try to find the powerpoint and pick it up! Thanks! I really need to find these pieces as I am starting the unit today and if not need to plan accordingly! Thanks again...

The mini lesson was from a previous school that I used these plans with and missed taking it out of the final version of these lesson plans. The problem / solution charts are included, which is what the "conference" form is... now that I look at it again, i'm not sure why I called it that. These are what I used, they can be easily adapted to how you wish to use them.

The power point is available for purchase under my products, and the journal is in the download, it is labeled by chapters for ex. 1-5.. you can use it as the student journal or as a regular worksheet... Glad you enjoy the plans! My students loved this unit.

Kathy,

I have revised and uploaded the file. Please let me know that you can access the new file and that it has the corrections that include Chapters 19-25. I apologize for the delay, I misplaced the original plans and had to rewrite them. We return to school tomorrow, and its been busy getting everything ready. I hope you have a wonderful school year. I apologize again for the delay and the mix up.

Buyer re: Sign of the Beaver Full Unit Plans and Attachments
Amanda,
I bought the Sign of the Beaver Unit Plans and the PowerPOint. I am getting plotting the lessons into my first nine week plans, and I believe I am missing some pages. The lessons I have include the students reading upto chapter 18 in the book. There are 25 chapters. I did get the short answer and essay questions (16-20),(21-24),and the final test, but the students are not reading the last 7 chapters in the plans I downloaded. I love what I have so far with the guided practice/mini lesson idea and the independent practice but am hoping that I am missing pages> Please help!

Hi Amanda!
I tried to respond to expand on my comment but it is not showing up. I did use the projectable book and it was wonderful. I would have been more satisfied if it had included items that I can not make on my own (worksheets, handouts, games) or a lower price. Like I said the product as it is was wonderful I just did not think it was worth $12 but rather closer to $5.
Thank you!

I did not write out individual plans for each activity. You get the full book which you can project if you have access to a projector and then there are 8 pages of ideas for each subject area that would be easy to put into a lesson plan. I wanted to give everyone the freedom to mix and match, and choose what they wanted to do, and not lock them into a lesson.

Yes!! I am currently working on putting those files up, I have unit 2 and 3, and bits and pieces of others, I may have to recreate some, as a couple of my files seem to be missing.. So some will be posted individually by story, and some by complete units.
