Hi Joanne~

Thanks for considering purchasing my product. Short answer: NO. My goal was teaching the "flippy" rule but applying it to -ed words so they could ask them selves if it sounded right. I can add rules to the packet but won't have it ready until tomorrow morning. Just let me know if you are interested so I can work on it today. (And to be clear: you aren't talking SPELLING rules but rather something like "words ending in K, P, etc, with -ed ending are pronounced as the "t" sound. (kicked, helped, etc.)

Again, thanks for inquiring!

Good morning! I am a first grade teacher, formerly PK teacher. I just finished my masters in May (yea!) with a degree in Mind, Brain and Education – a subfield of education. The first program was started at Harvard by Howard Gardner and Kurt Fisher (if you haven’t read any of Kurt Fisher’s work on Skill Theory and you are interested in the cognitive processes involved in learning, you must read his work!)

Cut to the chase. When I moved up from PK to 1st I was shocked by my students’ lack of number sense. I spent an entire year and all last summer trying to figure out what was missing. In Nov I attended a workshop that on number sense. When I heard the presentation I recognized all the “big” names of the research I had been investigating. The workshop was a training session for an iPad app (Native Numbers). It seemed like a valid, robust app, but I am a skeptic and had to know: would this really work.

I am here to tell you that with the first skill set I saw every cognitive model of learning embedded in this app. I also realized that this app is more than a learning tool; it has built in formative and summative assessment as it is adaptive and levels up and down based on student performance and leads to mastery.

Now I am on a “mission” – everything we read tells us our students are lacking number sense. I believe this app is a fabulous tool to remediate those deficits. I have no vested interest in this app except that I am one of those people that has to solve problems and when I think I have found possible answers, I have to share that with others. Our kids are too important not to share---which is why I love reading blogs! I am asking for teachers to simply read the research and then try out the app and give me feedback---or give the feedback yourself to the developers. I am that convinced. I am not a salesman and I feel quite strange in this new role I have taken upon myself…but I have nothing to lose, or gain, except knowing that maybe we can have an enormous impact on our students!

If you have any questions, please e-mail me at tatergraderswife@yahoo.com Check out the app at www.nativebrain.com – you can find the background of the developers and read about the research behind the app. You can also watch a video on that site or go to these YouTube links:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JF20_4GRtks

Thank you! I am considering it for the beginning of the year next year. Is it easily adaptable to be done with just one class or possibly 5 classes if I can get other teachers on board? Also, how would that work with licensing since I would be the one really running it but using other teachers' students, would they all need a license as well?

MY colleagues said- at first- no play for them It's such a busy time of year that I totally understood. But once they read it and saw how everything is there for them (with EASY scenery suggestions, too!) they were on board. Yep- easily adaptable.

Only one license is needed if grade level is doing together. No worries!

I just introduced it to my class today! They were so excited to hear it! We are having all five first grade classes perform the play. All classes are a "color" and there are several times where each class speak in together. "We're the Green People..."

As for Narrators: you can have as many as you want. The way I have it written can be done with one class or five! As written, I have 52 speaking parts BUT if that's too many, they can easily be grouped. (the 52 does not include the whole class parts where they speak together.

I've done it in the past with just my class (21 students) and with as many as 125-150 kids. Honestly, parents and teachers love it!So easy to adapt to any amount! Honest!

Let me know if you have any other questions! No matter which play you end up doing, break a leg!

Is it the packet you bought or the freebie? The freebie is just one page. The product description starts off like this:

You are getting page 18 below as a freebie. This page can be USED INDEPENDENTLY of the book. If you like the preview, the whole packet is avialable in my store. Enjoy!

Please let me know if it's the paid product. I haven't had any other buyers say they couldn't open it so I'm thinking the freebie. Sorry for the confusion.

My colleague and I are interested in purchasing your play The Land of Many Colors. However, before I purchase it I need to get approval from my principal on whether or not she will allow the play to be presented. Would you be willing to work with me on this? Obviously, I don't think I need the whole play but perhaps the pages you have available for viewing and anything else you think that might be valuable for this situation.
Thank you for your understanding,

Sure! Look for an email tonight as I'm at school now and have a meeting after school. This play was so well-received at my school for our character education assembly. Our school won several national awards (As well as State Awards, too!) for Character Education.

I downloaded "gotcha covered" and when I went to open it, it would not open. Any suggestions?

Hi~

Thanks for letting me know. I downloaded from my laptop and iPad just now with no problem. I'm wondering if it was just a temporary glitch? Can you try again and let me know? If it doesn't work, leave your email address and I'll send it to you. Have a great day!

Hi there~

Can you try again? I reloaded the file although it was working for me.
Please let me know if it works. If not, I'll gladly email you the file.

Thanks for your purchase. Have a great school year!

I purchased your bundled poems and songs for $30 last night. Oct. and Nov. worked fine. I could not download or print Dec. or Jan. I didn't try the other months yet. I also did not get Sept. or March included in this bundle and I thought they were. Any suggestions? I tried again this morning and it still wouldn't let me print. If you would rather send it to me my email is mdawson6@cox.net. I have ever had trouble downloading and printing from Teachers Pay Teachers. $30 is a lot to spend so i hope I can get all of your poems and songs Thanks!

Hi there~

I am so sorry you had a problem downloading. I just tried downloading and this is what happened: on my Mac, everything was fine AND September and March poems were there. On my PC, everything opened but September and March were NOT there. I am stumped. I deleted the file and then rezipped the files. I just finished testing on both computers and both downloaded fine. If this doesn't solve your problem, I will gladly email each as a separate file. Can you let me know either way? I've sold five of them and this is the only glitch so far. Thanks for being understanding and emailing me. I appreciate it!

I hope you and your students enjoy the poems as much as my students and I do.

Have a great school year!

Hi there~

Thanks for lettimg me know. Although the board's upgrade was completed a few weeks ago, there are still some hiccups! I just downloaded it successfully on both home computers so please try again. Can you let me know once you download successfully? If it doesn't work, give me your email address and I'll gladly send it to you. Enjoy it! (I've never heard of invalid cyber block before. Have you?)

Hello,

I am teaching first grade in South Orange/Maplewood in Essex County. This was my first year in First grade and in this district. Previously I taught 3rd and 4th in Newark and NYC. It was a HUGE learning curve for me as I had been out of the classroom raising my 3 children to school age. Where are you located? I do love your wealth of ideas on literacy at this age. I will be going to the Reading & Writing Institute this summer at Teahers College to learn more tips about teaching reading at this age! Perhaps sometime in late Fall I could visit if you're not too far away? Good Luck finishing up your year. I am swamped by the amount of paperwork that has inundated our profession in these last 9 years! Thaks for getting back to me, Diane Lewis-Rebimbas

I used to live in both South Orange and Maplewood! I don't live far from there now. (went to Seton Hall.) Email me at lisamullarkey@aol.com and we can chat. I was out for 4 years and it's my first year back, too. I actually did an author visit in Maplewood a few years ago at Clinton School. Hope to hear from you!

Hi there! Yes, my packet will e available first thing tomorrow morning. Just putting finishing touches on it. I've combined the packet to make it May/June since I know that many schools are finishing up and need end-of-the-year songs as well. Same amount of poems but May/June(and summer fun!)combo which I felt made sense. Thanks so much for checking in!

Hi Gloria~ How odd! I have had hundreds of downlaods on it and haven't heard of a problem yet. Have you tried to download other freebies of mine as well? They are all pdf files. I'm sure you've opened them in the past. I'll email you that freebie quick writes to address above right now. It opened for my sister yesterday and she's on a MAC. I am really sorry for the problem. (If you've tried to open multiple freebies of mine, then we are talking thousands of downlaods without a known glitch.) Was it just today or in past as well? Thanks!
