Buyer re: Earth Day Bookmarks Freebie
Hi Amanda ;) Thanks so much for the freebie. What a cute idea! Just a heads up that there is a typo in "teeth". Have a great Earth Day!

Hi Amanda,

I just purchased and downloaded your Lines and Angles Scoot Cards. It looks like a fun activity, and I am looking forward to using it. However, I noticed that the word "intersecting" is spelled incorrectly on all of the task cards. I was wondering if you would consider correcting that somehow.

Thanks,
Nora

Is it possible to get the PDF version of this? I downloaded it because I love the design and ideas, but of course I didn't read the computer specifications first...if not, I understand, but it never hurts to ask!
Thanks,

Amanda S. re: Comparing Numbers 100-1,000 War
Hi Amanda! I see on the preview of the directions that it states that students get a number with a decimal, but all the cards show a whole number. I would love for them to be whole numbers, but I wanted to check first! THANKS!

What exactly makes this a GAME? Looks like a simple worksheet fill-in to me. Please don't read that as a negative comment. Just would like further info...
July 14, 2013
Amanda McDonald  (TpT Seller)
What makes it a game is that it is a race against the clock and they "scoot" to different locations to complete the tasks. It's a more fun way to review content instead of just giving them a worksheet. Here is a website that gives a really good explanation for the game: http://substitutesftw.blogspot.com/2011/01/scoot-game-teachers-swear-by-it.html

I just purchased Equivalent Fractions flipchart. Is there anyway you can send it to me in another format? I have smart notebook, and although I read your comment to others about needing Promethean, I thought that it was only needed for a certain slide because you referred to it as a flipchart. My silly thinking...anyways, just wanted to check with you to see if I could get it some other way. Thank you!!

Hey Amanda, did you get my question from Friday, the 18th? I'm not sure if it went through. My email is lindseysmyre@gmail.com if you want to communicate that way. Thanks in advance! :)
January 21, 2013

Lindsey S.
Hey Amanda, I just bought your Equivalent Fractions flipchart and I am looking forward to using it with my class. However, when I got to the matching penguin activity at the end of the flipchart, there were two penguins that would not go into the corresponding boxes. These were the fractions and penguins: 2/3-4/6, 10/20-1/2, and 3/4-6/8. Have you or anyone else had problems with this before. Let me know what you think or if there is a way to fix this. I love the product; thanks for sharing! My email is lindseysmyre@gmail.com if you would rather email me. Thanks!
January 18, 2013
Amanda McDonald  (TpT Seller)
I've noticed that sometimes when opening flipcharts on different computers can change random things such as text size and sounds. I've not heard anyone having a problem with this flipchart before, but I'll look at it. Is it rejecting the penguin from the box or is it just not making a sound when you put the penguin in the box?

Ohh, I just got it! Lol It's been a long day. ;) Please disregard my first message. Thank you anyways! I can't wait to use your Fractions War cards.

Amanda McDonald  (TpT Seller)
Well I just e-mailed you before I got this! :-) Glad you got it now!
January 14, 2013

Lindsey S. re: Comparing Fractions War
I am a new teacher and I was taught to create a common denominator when comparing fractions, but you suggested to cross multiple. How does that work? It seems easier so I'm very interested. Will it work with 1/2 x 1/3? because that would mean that 1/3 is greater, which is incorrect. I would really appreciate to be taught this method. :) If you'd rather email me, my email is lindseysmyre@sevier.org. Thanks! :)
January 14, 2013

Hi, Amanda! This is a cute song that I think I'm will use soon when my fifth graders add and subtract fractions. Just wanted to let you know "denominator" is not spelled correctly on one of the lines.

Thank you for sharing your product as a freebie!

Buyer re: Learn the Parts of a Cell through Songs
I don't understand the rhythm or lyrical songs at all. Please explain. ta-ti does nto make sense to me. I thought it was going to be to tunes I would know...like Mary had a Little Lamb or Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Maybe I need to get a refund because I can't use this.
September 3, 2012
Amanda McDonald  (TpT Seller)
I am sorry. Ta and Ti are musical notations for rhythm. If you would allow me a couple days I will upload a video singing the songs so that you can know the rhythm.

Update: I have included the video so that you can hear the songs. I hope you enjoy and I hope it helps!

Buyer re: Decimal War (Comparing Decimals)
Not a question, but a comment - I copied two sets on one sheet of card stock. They are large and use a bit of ink when they are that size ( ink can add up quickly - especially if I keep buying all these fun games :) ). It's just a thought. I really love your work.

Brandi Davis  (TpT Seller) re: Geometry: Polygon Song
Hi! I love your polygon song- it's so catchy, and the students loved it. I just noticed a couple of typos, and was wondering if you could fix them so I could reprint?

In the second line, it says "polgon", but should read polygon.
In the last stanza, it says "octupuses legs", but it should read "octopus's legs"

Thanks so much!! :)
March 29, 2012
Amanda McDonald  (TpT Seller)
I have fixed the typos! Thank you so much for pointing these out to me so I could fix them! I'm glad to hear your students enjoyed the song!

Yes this game stops at the tenths. I am in the process of making one to the hundredths so there will be an easier and harder version. I hope to have it posted by Monday! :-)

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello, my name is Amanda McDonald and I have been teaching 4th grade for 4 years. I love my job and feel that it is the calling on my life. For 2 years I taught all subjects, but 4th grade has departmentalized and now I teach Math, Science, and Social Studies to about 40 students. I am always looking for new and better ways to teach . My goal is to make learning fun for my students! www.mcdonaldgrade4.blogspot.com

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to teach math as kinesthetically as possible, and include as many fun aspects as I can! I use a lot of manipulatives, games, songs, and group work to try and make math learning fun! Math is my favorite subject and I want teach in a way that my kids will love it as much as I do!
