Hi Anna -
My name is Janey Sowden and you taught my daughter Amanda 11+ years ago. She just loved you, and I did too. She is graduating from college next month with a BS in Nursing. I just happened to stumble upon your site while searching for 8th grade math topics and recognized your name.

I follow Amanda on Facebook! I have been so proud watching her grow into a young woman! She was delightful as a fourth grader, one of my favorites. :-) 4th grade materials aren't too close to 8th grade but if you see anything you like, let me know and you are welcome to have it for free! That's my friends and family discount! :-)

Hi Anna,
I purchased this "Sentence Bowl" center about six months ago. I downloaded it to my home computer, and I still have a copy there. The problem is, I need to somehow get it on to my school computer to print it out. I have tried unsuccessfully to email it to myself ( message says the file it too large). Additionally, it does not show up under my purchases. Is there a time frame that they display purchases? How can I download a copy to my school computer? Hope you can help!

Hi Karen. All of your purchases should show up on the My Purchases page on TpT (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/My-Purchases). If you don't see it, there is a link on the side that you can use for help from the TpT administrative team (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/My-Purchases/Request-File). If you don't see the item in that list, there is a CONTACT US link on that page (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Contact-Us) that you can use to contact them.

I hope this will resolve your issue. As a side note, you may want to invest in a thumb drive for transporting files back and forth between home and school. You can get an 8GB thumb drive for under $5 that will hold that file and tons more.

Thanks for your purchase!

I always kept my centers in a crate, but you could also file them in a file box (one made to hold folders) by subject if you have a lot. I did many of mine in manila envelopes instead of folders, because that way I didn't have to worry about pieces falling out. I don't think I have anything for main idea and details. I'll make that my next project!

Hey!
I just used your awesome constellation graphing activity with my 5th graders. They loved it! I loved it! I was just wondering if maybe I am looking at it wrong. For the constellation, Draco the dragon, should the coordinates (22,8) be (22,9), the coordinates (23,8) be (23,9), & the coordinates (23,6) be (23,7) instead? This appears to be the way your key reads, but I may be looking at it wrong. Once again, I loved this activity & the kids did too! Awesome lesson!

Tracy K. re: Vocabulary Spinner Pattern hands-on vocab center build background
Hi Anna,
Bought your vocab spinner and really like it, but I need clearer directions. The circle that is labelled as "Vocabulary spinner" goes on top, but what happens to the dark areas? Is on of those two triangles supposed to be cut out, to show just the word, for example, then the student answers with the definition? On the other circle, do the students write the word in the same little box where it says "word 1"? I love this, but would love it more if directions were included with the templates, and were clearer, so I don't have to spend time playing with it to understand. On the other hand, it could be that I've had a long day, or it's just my brain being slow! Either way, please clarify, then I'll be happy to provide feedback!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a public school teacher in a highly respected district in the Atlanta metro area for the past 12 years. I have taught very diverse students, usually all together in one group! After teaching fourth grade for ten years, I am now teaching a computer lab special to 3 and 4 year olds, and loving it! I am also the technology coordinator for my public, special needs school. You never know what changes life will bring!

MY TEACHING STYLE

My aim is to grow every student, whether a student is excelling or struggling. I strive to address many different learning styles and multiple intelligences in my lessons so that I can reach students where they are. I firmly believe that all students have strengths, and the strengths can be used to grow students in weaker areas. I often try to pull in other subject areas as I address specific content. I am a big believer in vocabulary development and have incorporated some of Marzano's ideas into my instruction in recent years. I consider myself laid back and flexible, but quality instruction (and quality instructional tools) are important to me.
