I love the Lessons and use them every week! I was wondering if you have lessons 27-29
completed? I would love to purchase them if you have them completed. Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into the lessons. This is my first year teaching second grade and everything you have done for the lessons has really helped me out a lot and made life a little easier. Thanks.

Hi April! I am on Lesson 23 next week. I typically send home the study guide and vocabulary on Friday (tomorrow) to give those who wish a head start in studying. There is a note that you will be updating the study guide after returning from snow days. Is that something you can do before the end of the day tomorrow (Friday)?

April,

Hope you are doing well! I have now purchased all lessons thru 23!!! Thank you! Thank You! We will be completing Lesson 21 next week, so I have the next few weeks covered. I do hope that you will be adding lessons 24 -30! I do not complete the review lessons such as 20, 25 and 30. We have a different reading component that I use during those weeks. So, I am only in need of lessons 24, 26, 27, 28, and 29. No pressure! Just keeping in touch!

Hi April! I recently purchased your 2nd grade Storytown spelling words and high frequency words to use on my theme board and word wall. I love both products, but noticed as I printed the spelling words that after lesson 22, lessons 23-30 are the words from lesson 1 repeated. You advertised the product as including all words from the Storytown lessons. I would really like to have the words for lessons 23-30. Please let me know how I can get the remaining words. Thank you.

Hey April, Obviously you use the same reading basal as I do in second grade. I was wondering if you had ever used the PCBOE website that have TONS of FREE resources to go with it..? Do you know what I'm talking about? Well if you had, I'm sure you noticed that they took it down. :-( Myself, along with almost every LA teacher in my building, are up in arms. We all used that website everyday. I was hoping maybe you were able to make some of the SmartBoard resources that were up there to sell. I know we would all be interested in them.

We ran I to the same problem with that website and contacted the guy who ran it. He said he moved an can no longer afford to keep the website up. I just wish that he had given us a little notice. :( I have a lot of the powerpoints that were on that website for 2nd grade. I am planning on posting them on TPT as freebies since I am not the original creator. I will hopefully be able to get them all up soon. :)

April, do you have daily interactive activities for the smart board. We use the storytown series in second grade. I did see that you have thr rob. Voc and spelling etc but. I already have that.
I was previously using the website from Phoenix schools for all of storytown but the website is gone. I am assuming that all the teachers who contributed to that website will be doing something with their hard work. Anyways we don't mind purchasing what we
need which is specifically the smart board resources.
Any info that you can give me is really appreciated.

We were pretty bummed when the website went down as well. Unfortunately, we do not have smart boards at our school. I do have almost all of the power points that were on that website. Are you able to use those? I have been revising them a bit and plan on posting them as freebies here on TPT when I have a chance. If you need one sooner, you can email me at ajohnson45039@yahoo.com.

I'm interested in your Harcourt Storytown lesson 11. What is included in that? Also, do you know of any power point presentations that go along with the story?

We were stressed about the same website! We actually emailed the gentleman and he said he moved to a new district and could no longer afford to keep the site up. Luckily, I saved most of the power points. I have made revisions to them and was thinking about posting them on TPT (as freebies of course) to help everyone out. Included in my units are anchor posters, vocab and spelling tests, and multiple worksheets and activities to practice spelling, grammar, and vocab.
