Buyer re: WOODS RUNNER Common Core Aligned Novel Study
I teach 5th grade. It says it is Common Core aligned for 6-8. Would they match up close enough for 5th?

Arlene Manemann
Arlene Manemann  (TpT Seller)
To some extent the standards flow from 3,4,5 into 6,7,8. So probably the answer is 'yes'. However, my gut reaction is that there are some significant parts that would be too difficult for 5th without a lot of assistance. I hope that helps you. Arlene

About how much time would you spend reading the book and working on the unit? We are implementing common core with novels into our curriculum this year and our district has allowed about 2 weeks for a novel. I am curious if this would fit. I teach 5th grade.
September 15, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Arlene Manemann
Arlene Manemann  (TpT Seller)
We set aside three weeks approximately for novels. A lot depends upon whether the students each have a copy to take home, in which case homework reading may be assigned and you could shorten that length of time.

No, I'm sorry, but I don't. I can tell you, however, that our school has 45 minute periods and it took just over three weeks. The students did have copies of the novel and there was assigned reading for homework, but also I was working on a grammar unit so some days no reading took place in school. In addition, some reading was aloud, which is slower than silent.

Music Matters  (TpT Seller) re: POETRY NOTEBOOK: Lessons, worksheets, and activities
Can I ask a question about the rhyming scheme for Sonnet 30 - why do the lines "foregone" and "moan" both contain an "e" designation if the end words and lines of the Sonnet do not rhyme.
November 2, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Arlene Manemann
Arlene Manemann  (TpT Seller)
Good question. The answer is simple - it's a Shakespearean sonnet, and by definition is two quatrains followed by a sextet. Each of the quatrains have alternating lines rhyming (in this case, including "past" and "waste" which really don't rhyme either) and the sextet has two sets of alternating rhyming lines and a couplet.

There is a phrase "poetic license" which explains a lot of what poets do that stretches the term 'rhyme' and sometimes 'meter'. It's used in reference to techniques in prose too occasionally.

Hi Arlene,

It's rare that I email, but I'm new to TpT and I'm having a hard time selling products. Since you're a high school teacher could you look at my store and see what you think? It is geared toward ELL (ESOL,ESL)but can also be used with lower-level reading students. I just think it's so important to get this classic into the hands of all students no matter what their reading level is. If you know anyone who teaches ELL can you pass this on? Also I too am sorry to hear about your husband. I just found out before Christmas that my sister has breast cancer. My mother is a breast cancer survivor.

Here are a couple of suggestions regarding clarity. Always make a title page so you have an eye catching thumbnail to attract buyers. Also, make the second page a page of directions or suggestions on how to use your product. List a couple of ways you use it in your classroom. Never assume a buyer knows how, why, or when to use an item you are selling. I've learned this the hard way, and have gone back to do the same thing to many of my products.

Hi Arlene
I had a wonderful professor in college who told us that learnt was a Queen's English regular verb, but who knows? Maybe he was wrong. Whatever the case, maybe it will inspire those who download it to do a bit of research. I love teaching English. Are you a high school teacher?

I was. And then with declining enrollment I moved to a middle school. When an opening came up to return to the high school I declined. I loved the kids, the parents, and the school. Doesn't get much better.

It's just fun talking about it with someone who actually knows grammar. So many of the newer teachers don't seem to have a strong background in it.

On another note.... I like not having to deal with PayPal. It's nice getting a paper check in the mail. :) I sold 30 products today! It's all due to the networking we do in the Seller's Forum here on TpT, blogging and Facebook. My sales have increased dramatically.
I'm going to change my primary free product to something else. I can't stand looking at that chart! I was using Word when I began selling here. Now I use Mac software called PAGES.. It gives me the opportunity to be more creative when designing my products.

Arlene,

Learnt - British (Queen's) English. Not commonly used in American English
Mostly found in unabridged dictionaries or some abridged versions have it.

Hi Arlene! I just downloaded your Christmas and New Year Puzzles and love them. I'd suggest that you put your TpT store URL on every page at the bottom (tiny font) and on the last page of your product. That way, if people have passed your product to other friends, they'll see it and might click on your store website. When I first started selling here, I didn't know to do that so some of my earliest products don't have my store website on every page.I'm not going to go back and fix all of them, but now I do that and my store sales have really increased and I have a lot more followers :)
I'm following you :) Check out my store :)

I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done! I have a suggestion that might help you to better market this product. Create a cover page which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestion page. List several ways you use these activities with your students.

I hope you will have time to rate one of my freebies listed below.

Do you happen to have any answer keys to your Woods Runner packet?

Thank you for your inquiry. I'm sorry, but no, I generally don't make answer keys for my novel units for average and honors students. We discuss all the questions in class, or in groups.

Hi, If I'm understanding you correctly, you are referring to the novel unit I have listed. You need to order just one, and then make four copies of each page that you plan to use.

Hello - I just purchased your plans for Life As We Knew It and was wondering if you have any materials for the Dead and the Gone. I plan on teaching both in February.
Thank you,

Sorry, I do not. I hadn't heard of the novel before but will look into it. Might be I'd want it too. Thanks for asking. I'll get back to you if I do work with it.

Hi Arlene,

I was wondering if you had an answer key for the comprehension questions for the CODE ORANGE novel study I purchased from you? It would be greatly appreciated if you could email my way. llang@psd70.ab.ca

Thanks, Lynn Lang

I purchased the resources for Life As We Knew It yesterday and would like to know if you have answer keys for the resources. Every resource that I have purchased from this website has had answer keys and this one did not have any. Thank you in advance for any information that that you can provide.

I don't have answer keys as I have not taught the unit and would make them as I went along. Is there one part in particular that you would like the keys for? I'd sure be glad to make one for that part.
