I completely understand. Mine messes up all the time. Let me play with the file and see what I can do. Which grade level are you looking at?

Is there a way for me to be able to see the wondering on 1 or 2 of the rubrics? When I hover over the pages, the font is too small to read.

Help me out with 'wondering'...I am thinking this is 'wording', but I want to clarify before I answer you wrong!

Just checked - There are 2 words added that are new, and two that were already there - but no "May" or "Are".

I would be glad to. I can only use the colors that are already on there. What colors do you want them in?

Buyer re: Question Word Posters and Sorts
I saw you added "is" and "which". Thanks!

Would you be willing to add "Are" and "May"? They are used frequently to begin sentences in first grade.

Best Practices 4 Teaching
I added them about a week ago. The only reason they should not be included is if TpT did not upload the file correctly. Did you go back and redownload the file? Can you try that and get back to me and let me know if it shows up?

Elaine C. re: Fall Noun and Verb Scoot
It would be great if all your scoot games were numbered in order so it would be easy to use them for task cards, also!
Thanks,

Best Practices 4 Teaching
I do have some of them numbered so that they can be used for task cards. The reason I don't usually number a scoot game is because it is easier to mix the cards up and kids can't remember the order of the answers after you go through them.

Just make sure your Adobe is updated...other than that, you should be good. Try that and see if that helps.

Buyer re: Back To School Sight Word Phrase and Picture Match
Which sight word lists did you use?
August 22, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Best Practices 4 Teaching
I use both the Fry and Dolch--they are a lot alike. I probably depend on Fry's more than Dolch though because Dr. Fry and Dr. Ravinski worked together on a lot of their research for sight word phrases.

Julie M. re: First Grade Common Core 4 Point Rubrics
Are all the rubrics done in the "Always, sometimes..." style? If not, is it possible to see a sample of a rubric that is done without those words as descriptors?
July 12, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Best Practices 4 Teaching
The second grade rubric is done with the same words except instead of 'always', I used consistently. You could take a look at the thumbnails for that rubric if you would like to.

I have a rough collage that I can put up. It is REALLY rough. My mother-in-law is in the last stages of auto-immune hepatitis and I've been back and forth to the hospital so I haven't had a chance to put it up yet. I'll go ahead and throw up the rough version for you to look at and change it to the better collage later on. I am in the middle of printing it out for myself and it is so cute!!

I uploaded a preview at 9:02 AM EST!

Rachelle M. re: Science Through Literature: Cactus Hotel Science Mini-Unit
Hi. Before I leave a comment I think it should be mentioned that this to be used with the book Cactus Hotel by Guiberson. I will admit, I read the information quickly and I did purchase your unit but I did not clearly understand that it was an outside book that was needed to complete this unit. I thought it was a 'book' you had written and it was included. I am new to elementary school (transferring from middle school) and I do not know all the books yet.

Thank you for your very prompt responses to my questions! I love your products and purchased several today. Based on what I've just purchased I'm sure I will be buying more in the future. Sorry to hear about your computer crash ... so frustrating! I don't need any replacements, these are what I wanted but thank you for offering. Thank you for sharing your great ideas with all of us!

Buyer re: Sight Word Phrases With Matching Pictures--Camping Themed
Will you also please check the last phrase on page 13? When I open it there is an x over the center that is distorting the words. Is that something you can fix? Again, thank you!
April 28, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Best Practices 4 Teaching
The x that you are referring to is part of the background of the card. I just did a trial print of that card myself using my new HP and the words aren't distorted on my end. Make sure you are using at least the 'normal' setting on your printer. If you use 'draft' to print it may cause the distortion. I'm not sure since I can't see your printer. =)

Buyer re: Sight Word Phrases With Matching Pictures--Camping Themed
I really like this set and it is perfect for my camping themed classroom. Is it possible for you to change the background on the phrase cards to one theme or no background at all? I find some of them very difficult to read with all that is going on in the background. Thank you for this product!

I cannot find the original file for this product. It must not have made it to my external drive before my computer crashed. If you are not satisfied with the product I can offer you something of the same value right now. I won't be able to redo the product to meet your specifications until after school is out. I am benchmark testing my kids from now until the end of the year in all subjects, so I just wouldn't have time until then. I can tell you that I used these cards myself this fall and the backgrounds didn't cause any problems with my small group. Feel free to email at jennh13@aol.com because I will have to email you any additional product that you may want.

Buyer re: Plain Ole Plane Geometry Task Cards Set 1
Can you please edit card number 21 unless of course I am misreading what it says? A quadrilateral has four sides and neither of these images has four sides.
April 28, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Best Practices 4 Teaching
That shape is a complex quadrilateral (the intersection doesn't count), but I can see how that could be confusing. I will change it and reupload it. Hopefully TpT will not throw a monkey wrench into things.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 18 years, 13 of which were in the inner city. Along the way I earned my master's and a specialist's degree. I have conducted several balanced workshops in the Southeast Tennessee area.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am not an 'in the box' teacher. I enjoy trying new things, but at the same time know that I must document everything I do for the administration. Most of the files I create begin with this in mind.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I became a mom to the two most wonderful children on this earth! THAT is a REAL honor.
