Hi, Ms. Turner. I just purchased your Easter Grammar Packet-it's great! Thank you! However, I am unable to print at home, and wanted to save it on my flash so I can print it at school (since we do not have access to TPT at school)...is there any way I can get a copy that will allow me to save it?

Thank you, again.

I recently purchased the math common core interactive notebook. I am unable to open the numbers and operations. I have opened and printed many of the other ones but for some reason I can't open these ones. I was hoping the division was in the one I can't open. Is there any way you can help me or resend them to me?

Blair Turner  (TpT Seller)
Hi Haydee! The bundle does not come with a traditional table of contents, however, it is super organized to help you find exactly what you need once you have the files. The fraction bundle comes as a zip file - inside the zip file is a separate pdf file for each of the Common Core fraction standards. These are named with the standard to make them easy to find on your computer. Once you open each PDF, the first several pages have directions and photographs of each of the activities included for reference. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. :)

Hi Blair,
I was just going through the nbt.6 notebook and on the page with the area model examples 756 divided by 6 says 100 + 30 + 6. I believe it should be 100 + 20 + 6. The calculations inside the boxes are correct. I am hoping to use this tomorrow and would greatly appreciate it you could make the correction. Many thanks:)

Thanks so much for your interest and the nice compliment! Unfortunately, probably not. I have a long list of projects I'd like to get to, and I am not familiar with the Ontario standards so I would need to do a lot of research on them before getting started.

If you haven't done so already, you may want to check out Runde's Room - she has an extremely popular interactive math notebook that is aligned to both Common Core and the Ontario Curriculum Strands. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Interactive-Math-Journal-315177 You may already have seen it, but thought I'd pass along the link in case! :)

Blair Turner  (TpT Seller)
Totally up to you! Most of the binder pages will stay the same (anything without a date on it), so if you wanted to get some of them printed out and ready to go now, you could go ahead and purchase it. I will be updating this listing with the calendars, so if you were to purchase now, you would have access to the new download on your purchases page as soon as it is ready (you will not need to buy anything else). But if you prefer to wait until the whole thing is ready to go and only download it once, that's fine too - I'll update the title to say {2014-2015}, so that will let you know when it's ready. :) Thanks so much!

Blair--

Love your stuff. One of my teachers is using your CC download for Fractions. Great Stuff! I have started a new chapter in my career and am currently an ESL Instructional Specialist for K-5 students at two schools. I service approximately 150 students. I am looking to use Interactive Notebooks with my newly arrived non-English Speakers. They know nothing. The Arabic ones don't even know their alphabet. Can you guide me to specific lessons that you have created that may be helpful to my students?

Blair Turner  (TpT Seller)
Hi Laverne! Congratulations on your new job! That is a lot of students - I'm sure it is pretty overwhelming, but it's amazing how many kids you will be able to help.

Are you working with students in all areas of the curriculum? My interactive notebook resources are all for math, and I have them for all common core standards in grades 1-4. I think INBs are perfect for ELLs because they are hands-on and allow them to see each concept visually. I have a vocabulary page at the beginning of each pack where students define and illustrate each important word or term, which I think would be great for ELLs.

If you let me know what math concepts your students are working on right now, I can point you to the specific packs that correspond to those skills.

I'll also give you a couple of links to some free INB resources that I've blogged about if you want to test a few out in your classroom.

Hi, Blair. I looked at your previous questions and didn't see this addressed, so I'll ask: Are you going to do Grammar Packets for the rest of the school year? I have absolutely loved these packets. My students have learned so much from the information you include. Also, are you going to do any more Brain Buster packets? I have been teaching a HA class of second graders and your 3rd grade materials have been such a time-saver for me. Thank you!!

Thanks so much!! It's so good to hear the materials are useful to you! To answer your question, yes, I am planning on doing more of both sets. My plan is to create at least one grammar packet that is applicable to each month - I am currently working on an Easter packet which I hope to have out soon. If you have suggestions for holidays/themes you'd like to see for April-September, feel free to let me know! I am also planning on doing more brain busters, but I am waiting for the inspiration to strike for my next packet. :) Thanks again!

I love your interactive notebooks. I have bought a couple. The 4th grade Measurement Interactive Notebook could use some more samples of Perimeter. You have area covered, but there is no practice for Perimeter. Will you update the interactive notebook.

Blair Turner  (TpT Seller)
Hi there! Thanks so much for your purchases. If you bought the Measurement and Data bundle, there are quite a few perimeter problems included in the 4.MD.3 activity pack since that standard focuses on real world problems for both area and perimeter. I did not include any perimeter problems in the 4.MD.7 pack as that standard is solely focused on area. At this time, I am not planning on updating the packs since I feel that they cover the standards, as they are written, completely. However, I will definitely keep it in mind for the future. Thanks!

Your math interactive notebook bundles are AH-MAY-ZING. Any chance you will be extending your collecting to include middle grade (7-8) or that you know of someone else who sells something similar for middle grades? I've done a little searching but haven't found anything as comprehensive as yours.

Hi Blair,
I just purchased your First Grade Interactive Notebook and I noticed a problem on page 10 of 1.NBT.1. On one of the hundreds chart flaps you have the number 8. This would be confusing to the first graders since they don't know negative numbers.

I also wanted to ask if there was a way for me to get a credit for $13.40 (for another one of your great products) because I purchased your Grade 1 OA bundle on February 5th. Which is part of the all standards bundle that I purchased on Feb 28th. (I was too eager and thought it was the whole set).

I wanted to start work with my son at home on the math bundle that I bought for him. Can you give me advice with what to start off with first and to work up to the end. Common core seems great but doesn't show me how to progress from one lesson to the other. I really don't want to overwhelm my son.
thanks so much.
P.S. Just give me the numbers...like 3NBT2---3OA5.....kind of like that so I don't trouble you too much typing :)

So sorry for the delayed response! I'm sure you've already begun using the materials, but I'm happy to share the general progression that I use. :) Within each domain, I typically go in order of the standards, starting at number 1. I find that within the domain, the standards progress pretty fluidly in the order they are listed. Personally, I like to start with the Operations and Algebraic Thinking domain, since so much of the 3rd grade curriculum builds on multiplication and division concepts. Next, I do standards 3.MD.1-3.MD.4.

Then, I introduce fractions and do all of the standards in that domain. After we've tackled fractions, I go back to 3.MD.5 since using a ruler really requires some understanding of fractions on a number line.

I continue with the rest of the measurement standards 3.MD.5-3.MD.8. This also allows us to review multiplication skills within the context of rectilinear area.

I generally do the geometry standards last. I teach the NBT standards throughout the year, as I find that my third graders really need constant repetition when it comes to regrouping especially! Those activities make great warm-up problems at the beginning of math.

I also save some of the activities from each interactive notebook pack to pull out throughout the year as a spiral review at the beginning/end of class or as a center, so that they stay sharp while learning other concepts.

Again, so sorry it took me so long to get back to you - but I hope this helps somewhat! :)

Hi Blair! I just bought this and used it today- I think it is great and unique way to engage the learners. However, the "A" that I printed off measures SUPER close to the 2 1/4" mark instead of the 2 1/2" mark. Do you teach your students to round up or just what is closer? If you teach them to round to the closer measurement, can you possibly adjust the "A" to be closer to 2 1/2"?
Thanks!

Yikes, so sorry I missed your question, Rachel! I created that set on my old computer, so I will have to track down the original version and check it out. If I can't find it, I can try to recreate that card. :)

I am unable to get 3.MD1 and 3.MD.3 to print properly. I ahve tried 2 different printers and also tried selecting "Shrink oversized pages." Neither have changed the outcome. It is printing, but shifting the images down, which is cutting off roughly 1/4 of the page. Do you have any suggestions on how to print these? I have purchased several of your INBs in the past, this is the first time with an issue. Thanks for your help! :)

Did this today! Great fun. You do not have an array for 5 rows and 5 columns. You do have 2 for 4 rows and 5 columns. Thanks!

I bought your St. Patrick's Day Grammar Packet & I cannot print the front cover page of it. I always print those cute pages out for my monthly binder, but on my laser it just comes out a blank piece of paper & it won't even print on my inkjet. Anything I should try doing?

Hi there - so sorry you are having trouble! Sometimes it helps to use the print as image trick. Here are TpT's instructions on how to do that:

If that doesn't work, I would get in touch with TpT support by clicking on the "contact us" button at the bottom of the page and opening a ticket. Their tech gurus will get you fixed up in no time! Thanks so much!

oh my gosh...I'm about to pull my hair out! I just bought the fun font clipart, and downloaded it. I have windows 7. When it went to extract them, it said they weren't encrypted,, and did I want to go on and download. I did. Nothing that has downloaded is a font file that I can open or send to my fonts folder. HELP!!

Hi there - I'm so sorry you are having trouble! All of my alphabet clip art are individual clip art images, and not fonts, so they have to be arranged individually. I hope that helps!

I have purchased your second grade mega math interactive notebook bundle. I am planning on doing 2.MD.9 (lineplots) with my students next week, but my version does not have the page with the riboon lengths. Can I please get a copy of this? My email is mgallup@lawtonps.org. Thank you so much. My students are loving thier interactive notebooks.

I love the idea of this packet, the only thing is I'm having trouble printing it out. It keeps printing so the top of the page starts about a 1/3 of the way down the sheet therefore cutting off the bottom of each of the pages. When I do print preview and adjust all the settings to make it print full page it looks great. Except when I print. Do you have any ideas as to why it's doing it?

Yikes that's no good! Have you tried making sure the "fit to page" option is clicked on your printer settings? If that isn't doing the trick, I would get in touch with TpT's tech team by opening a ticket (click on the contact us button at the bottom of the screen) and I'm sure they can help figure it out! Thanks!!

Hi! I recently bought your fractions interactive notbook activities and LOVE them! I want to purchase the bundle now, but was wondering if because I paid for one that I would get a break of some sort? Not sure if that is an option? Thanks for all you do...you make my life so much easier...love all your work!

Susan W. re: Interactive Notebook: 4th Grade CCSS Numbers and Operations - FRACTIONS BUNDLE
This looks like a great, complete interactive set of tasks. I teach a group of "proficient" 4th graders, and would like to know how challenging these may be. They are very strong with equivalent, comparing, and adding/subtracting, and cross-multiplying already! Do you have a 5th grade bundle, and if so, what does it cover? Also, are any of the files editable that I could change some of the fractions to make them more challenging?
Thank you! Any chance of answering before the end of the sale:)

Hi there! Thanks so much for your interest. Unfortunately, I am unable to make the files editable due to the terms of use of the clip artists' whose work I have used.

As far as whether these would be challenging enough, it's hard to say for sure - the activities are designed to rigorously explore each standard fully. That being said, if your class has already mastered these concepts, the various activities may be redundant. There are a lot of opportunities for students to practice the skills you mentioned, and it seems like they may not need that. At this time, I do not have a 5th grade bundle.

If you haven't done so already, click on the green links on this description to see the individual packets for each standard - you may find that some are better suited to your needs than others.

If they don't look challenging enough, you may want to check out my friend Jennifer's 5th grade fraction flippables pack - here's a link:

Hope that helps some! Thanks again!
