Hi Amanda! I just bought your Ramona Q novel study! It looks fantastic. Thank you for creating wonderful units. It sure saves me time! I think I work in your old school :) I'm not sure if this is a private message or not so I won't give away the location. But, I am pretty sure my colleagues have talked about you! All wonderful comments, of course :)

Oh yes! I am thrilled with your interest in this product! Thank you. I have plans for Books 4 & 5 (that should take us through a school year)... Are you one of my followers? If not, please do so that you can know when they are uploaded. Look for book 4 in the next 10 days (hopefully sooner!) Thank you!

Kristin E. re: Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar: Reading Response Unit
Does this include vocabulary?
January 6, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Amanda Garcia
Amanda Garcia  (TpT Seller)
Hi Kristin,
Thank you for the question! I have some vocabulary imbedded in the questions (character traits such as "obedient" and "responsible"), as well as questions such as one that asks the reader to explain a "peculiar" act as well as two meanings for the word "pupil", but there is not a specific vocabulary component for each chapter. I hope this unit will still work nicely for you!

Hi Amanda! I'd like to leave this in my emergency sub tub since the book is such an easy read and is so easily divided. Do you think it is suitable for subs, or would you think a teacher is necessary to guide instruction?

Hi Lauren! Yes, I think this would be great in a sub folder. Good idea! It's all very self-explanatory. A sub should be just fine with it :) Thanks for the question!

Hi Amanda. I purchased the DOL Book 1 for 4th grade and love it! I will be purchasing book 2 soon. Was wondering if you had an answer guide for book 1. I can't remember the rule on Mrs. Smith and I or Mrs. Smith and me. Thanks Kaleena Reams.

Anne K. re: Daily Oral Language (DOL) Book 1: Aligned to 4th Grade CCSS
These look great! I was curious if you include an answer key and, also, how the book is set up...one day per page, 2 days per page, or 2 of the same day per page and you cut them apart? From the down load it looks like 2 of the same day on one page. Thanks for answering my ?s!

Amanda Garcia  (TpT Seller)
Hi there :)
No, I have not made an answer key yet. I have plans to, but I know it won't happen in the next couple weeks. The errors are pretty basic and are outlined on the first page...

The format of the book is that it is a half page in size. The pages would be printed, stacked, cut in half, and stapled. It is set up to complete one page (3 sentences) per day. Of course, you could do more! :)

My vision (and how I have liked DOL) is short & sweet! They learn basic, key skills in a comfortable, routined way that students are encouraged to "try on" in their writing.

Thanks for writing! ~Amanda

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have spent 5 years in 5th grade, 5 years in 3rd grade, and 2 years in kindergarten. I love it all! This year, I am blessed to be home with my two sweet kids - one of which started kindergarten this year! It's been such a treat to be on this side of the classroom - volunteering, making lunches, driving carpool, and exploring BOB books with my own beginning reader. What a blessing!

MY TEACHING STYLE

School should be fun (!), engaging, and appropriately challenging for each student. I like hands-on learning with a focus on the Common Core Standards and the integration of curriculum. Students in my class work in groups, in partnerships, and independently.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Hmmm... shining teacher moment? Every time I say goodbye for winter/spring break, and a student says, "Aww.. I don't want to have a break! I love school!" So sweet.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Western Washington University in 2002 with a BA in Elementary Education. In 2007 I went back to school and earned a Masters in Reading and Literacy. I am also a Reading Specialist.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

This fall, my husband and I will celebrate 10 years of marriage! We are the blessed parents of Eliana (5) and Benjamin (3). Our family loves being outside, playing together, and date nights ..... well, we love those more than they do :) At the Garcia house, we love all things holiday and strive to make each season special!
