Do you have these games for Measurement & Data yet? I looked but didn't see it. I love these, as well as my kids!

Angela Watson  (TpT Seller)
Thanks so much for asking about the measurement and data games! I haven't started them yet, unfortunately. It's a massive project because each grade level covers very different topics, and some of the grades have a ton of really important standards. I haven't quite wrapped my head around how to hit everything in a meaningful way yet. I'm hoping to start working on them this summer so they'll be ready for next school year. Sorry I don't have a better answer for you!

Hi, Chrissy! I'm so sorry, there isn't any way to purchase just the decimal games. There are 2 games that include both fractions and decimals, since that's the way the Common Core standards are written, and 2 games with just decimals, so I didn't think it made sense to sell the fractions and decimals games separately. Sorry I could be more help!

Hello, I have used your 'How to teach any procudure' chaper and think it is wonderful. It is such commonsense yet you need to read it to realise it. I work in Norway and have a colleague who also struggles with procudures. I have lent her my Cornerstone book but her english is not very good. I had hoped to use google translator on your free download but can't seen to make it work with a PDF. Do you have any suggestions.

I'm so glad to hear that The Cornerstone has been helpful for you! I used to live in Norway, by the way, in a small town called Kolsas outside of Oslo--such wonderful memories there! I'm not sure how to get a PDF translated. You may just want to direct her to my website and have her read the information I have there since Google can translate the page. See if this section helps her: http://thecornerstoneforteachers.com/free-resources/routines-and-procedures. All the best to you!

Angela Watson  (TpT Seller)
Hi, there is some overlap in the games because there is some overlap in the standards between grades 3 and 4. However, each set is designed specifically for the standards at each particular grade level, and the third grade games don't cover decimals at all. Downloading the preview files for each of the products might give you a better idea of the similarities and differences. I hope that helps! :)

I taught inclusion HeadStart for three years and worked with many four- and five-year olds with autism and physical and cognitive disabilities, and those experiences helped form a lot of my approach to teaching routines and procedures. :)

Angela Watson  (TpT Seller)
Hi, Kristi! These are two player math games, so I wouldn't recommend them for individual practice. Most of the value in them comes from having students construct knowledge collaboratively and talk about their thinking/strategies. When I've had students who don't work well with others, I've assigned them specific partners that I knew they could get along well enough with to participate in a game for a few minutes each day. Most of the time, they were successful! :)

Buyer re: FREE Detailed Teacher To-Do Lists: Editable forms for short & long-term planning
Angela I'm a floater, so I've been trying different things to help organize my day. I like the idea of using a a to-do list, but when I look at the blanks and think about the time it will take to fill out the document and prioritize correctly, I feel daunted and hopeless! Do you have any suggestions on where I should start as a novice?

Turning Frowns Into Smiles Style Teaching
Turning Frowns Into Smiles Style Teaching  (TpT Seller) re: 5th Grade Fractions Math Partner Games: 12 Games Designed for Common Core
Hello Angela, I believe I use to follow your blog a few years back when I taught 3rd grade. I believe it was Cornerstone Education and made a few comments on some questions you asked your viewers. Any how I was glancing through your directions and saw a minor error. If you go to the part of the directions where you mentioned about saving ink and time it is under that heading. I don't know if this questioning is private or not but I figured you would want to know about that. I didn't get a chance to read all the directions to notice anything else. Well it is good seeing you once again and I look forward to following your products.

I have been unable to open the file since downloading it. I'm on a Mac computer, and I tried both preview and acrobat; neither worked. The message said that the file might be corrupted or of a type I couldn't open. I've never had this problem with TPT before - any advice?

Hi, iPads don't play well with zip files. Try opening it on a computer and you should be fine. :)

Hello Angela,

First, I want to start by saying I am a huge fan of The Cornerstone website and books. They have been great resources. I also enjoy the products in your TPT store. Quick question, probably silly and random, but how do you create the materials you have in your store. I have been buying and downloading a lot of the materials on TPT but I want to start my own store. However, I have no clue where to begin. What software to use, where to find the graphic etc. Any tips? Your help will be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you for all your resources!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm an instructional coach and educational consultant based in New York City. I was classroom teacher for eleven years, working first in Washington, D.C., and then in South Florida.

When I'm not coaching teachers or conducting professional development in schools, I'm either working as an Educational Content Developer for BrainPOP, blogging, writing books for teachers, or creating teacher resources. I love what I do and feel very blessed to have so many different types of opportunities to support teachers!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Classroom management is really the cornerstone of effective teaching (perhaps you're noticing a theme there with my materials?) and is a huge part of how I define my teaching style. I think classroom management gets a bad rap sometimes: people assume it's about controlling students' behavior and forcing compliance. It doesn't have to be that way! My goal is to support children in taking ownership of both the classroom and their own learning. I love empowering students to rely on self-control rather than teacher-control, and helping them follow their passions and interests.

Part of strong classroom management is creating and implementing lessons that are really engaging for kids. I try to use (and create) materials that go beyond just worksheets: my focus is on cooperative learning and group work, whole brain teaching, hands-on learning, technology integration, and getting kids actively involved in lessons. And I'm a huge advocate for 21st century skills, specifically the 4 C's: creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.

The most important thing I try to impart to students is a love of learning, and the most important thing I try to impart to teachers is a love teaching. I believe the classroom should be a joyful and loving place where both kids and adults look forward to going to each day. The school system can sometimes make that difficult, but I hope to help teachers tackle some of the issues that drain their energy so they can focus on connecting with and enjoying their students.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

One of my most pivotal "shining teacher moments" came during my second year of teaching. I hadn't built up my immunity to kid germs yet and had been home sick with strep throat for two very long weeks. When I returned to school, my principal came running over to me, her eyes wide with amazement. "I poked my head in your classroom last week and I couldn't even tell you were gone! The kids just knew exactly what to do and kept doing it even when you weren't there to watch them."

That compliment made me feel so good! It solidified my passion for classroom management and inspired me to start a website to share ideas for creating a self-running classroom. I began taking photos to illustrate how I set up routines and procedures, and wrote tips for building a sense of classroom community and empowering students to take charge of their own learning.

Eventually the website grew into a book, then a webinar, then two more books. And now? I'm thrilled to continue creating resources here on TpT--I just started in September 2012. The goal is the same as it was back then: to help make teaching more effective, efficient, and enjoyable.
