I love your products!! I've purchased two or three. I was wondering if you have anymore "I Have-Who Has" for the Middle East or Asia (I teach 7th grade SS in Georgia). I am using the CRCT review one, but would love a more specific one for each region.

Thanks!!

Hi, Brian I purchased your Australian Bundle and the Location, Climate and Natural Resources power point has an error on the Location slide-it should be "BY" and not "BUT". Since your power point is protected I cannot make the correction. Is it possible to make the correction and resend it out? Also, have you done a Government Bundle or thought about doing one?

Hello,
I'm sorry that some of the pages were gray when you printed them. I'm thinking those are the ones that I took screenshots of. I am not too terribly tech-savvy, so I thought that was the best way to get all of the pages into the PDF. I also included the original files in the folder; those will not print darker. You just have to open them up individually. (And they're also editable, so you can tweak them to fit your students' needs.) Have you had a chance to try printing the original files? I am very sorry for the hassle! Please let me know how this works out.

There is a "Contact Us" button on the front page of the website. I'm so sorry that I don't have an answer for you right away, but the good news is TPT is really good about fixing the technical issues. And they're pretty quick about doing it, too! I'm confident that they'll get this all figured out for you (I wish I could be more help though).

Hi,
Thank you so much for your support! The person who purchased the bundle originally is the only one who can add the discounted additional licenses, but it does not have to be all at once. You can go back to your purchases to add additional licenses at any time. In my experience, it was easier for me to buy the licenses for our group and then have each person pay me back in cash. I hope this makes sense! :)

I use Daily Warm-Ups for the whole class at the beginning of class. Task Cards are more for pairs or small groups--like centers or for early finishers. I can email you the Task Cards file if you want to check them out.

Are these intended to discuss together? For them to find the info themselves? How?
January 26, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Brain Wrinkles
Brain Wrinkles  (TpT Seller)
Hi Kim,
I generally choose questions that we've already learned about in class, so the daily warm-ups are more of a review. My students can find all of the answers in their Interactive Notebooks. They complete a graphic organizer and an activity or two for every Georgia standard, so as long as the notebook is in order, they should be able to find the answer. Their notebooks are like mini-textbooks that are divided by areas of the world: Europe, Canada, Latin America, & Australia. We have horrible textbooks, so we've had to improvise this way. All of the questions fit the Georgia standards, so if you have better textbooks than we do then your students could find the answers there. Ours really are terrible! :(

I give them a few minutes (maybe 5-7?) at the beginning of class to independently answer the questions. We then go over the answers together. My students use the Response Sheets as study guides for the CRCT in April, and they have really helped.

I hope I answered your questions. I feel like I'm rambling now! Let me know if I can explain anything more in depth. Enjoy your night!

Hi! Thanks so much for the compliments! I am so glad that you like the LA Bundle & the kids are doing the warm-ups. Hopefully they will really help with the CRCT!

You are definitely not doing anything wrong. The reason that the sheets are fuzzy is because they are actually screen captures. I make the majority of my worksheets in Word and then insert them into PowerPoint via screen captures. I'm sure that there is probably a better way to do this so that the worksheets aren't blurry when printed, but I'm not "technologically savvy" enough to figure it out! I'm including the original documents in all of my new files. I am trying to update all of my older products to include the Word documents, but I'm sure I've missed some. Let me know if there's a file that you need the Word documents for and I can update it right away!

They respond pretty quickly--within a few hours. I wish I could help. I've just never heard of that message before! I'm so sorry!

Happy New Year!!
I purchased this lesson from you in March 2010. I didn't realize I had been following you and using your great lessons for so long!! I noticed that you updated this lesson recently but it wasn't updated in my purchases. Do I have to purchase it again? Thank u!

Hi Joy!
Wow! Thank you so much for your support!! :) I've tried to get all of my lessons updated over the past few months, but some of the early ones were so bad that I just scrapped them and started over! I'll email you the new file. What's your email address? I can delete the message after I read it. Oh--and I love reading your feedback! It makes my day!

Do you have any lessons on the Cuban Revolution and the Zapatista Movement?

Hi,
I do. It might take me a few days to update them from last year and get them posted on here. I will add them to the Latin America Bundle as soon as I finish them and you can download that file again. Thanks!

Hi, I love the information in the Europe bundle. Would you be willing to share with me the scope and sequence that you teach the unit?

I am having trouble with the following: pages 3,24,26,30 are blurry and do not print well enough for me to give a copy to my students. Page 28 is cut off and 1/4 of the facebook page does not print. Could you please take care of these pages?

Hi Jenellepfau,
I am very sorry for the delayed response. Please forgive me, but I have a sick baby and I've put everything else on the backburner. I am so sorry. I've updated the file on Teachers Pay Teachers so that it now includes the original Word documents & PowerPoint. They will not print out blurry. Again, I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you so much for your support.

Do you have a "generic" Think Dot Activity for any social studies list? I love the one you did for types of government and so do my kids. I was hoping you have one but I don't see it.

Scratch my first request...I found the ppt for the Europe bundle, but would love to have the ppt (editable so I can add learning targets etc with our state spi's) for the Latin America environment unit.

If possible can you email it to me at daviskr1@scsk12.org


Thanks so much

Thank you so much for your support, Renee! I very much appreciate it. I will send you the PowerPoint as soon as I get home this afternoon. (I will also update the file on Teachers Pay Teachers to include the PowerPoint.) Enjoy your Sunday & stay warm!

I have bought several of your items....Latin American environmental and have just purchased your exit tickets and the whole Europe unit bundle. Is there a way to turn you pdf files back to powerpoint or can I get you to email the powerpoints for these.

Your stuff is amazing and I fully intend to add each region as I get to them. It has been very beneficial to me as I am teaching geography as a swing subject and unfortunately have not been able to give it the attention it is due.

Thanks

Hi Renee,
I just tried to email you the Environmental Issues of Latin America file, but the email was returned saying, "message file exceeds limit". I've updated the file on Teachers Pay Teachers, so you can download it again (no cost). Sorry about that!

I'm pretty sure it worked out. The worksheet table on the geography power point is blurry. If you could send another copy that would be great.

I was curious if you had a summative assessment for the Canada unit.

Whew--good! Okay--I'll send you the tests that I have for Canada when I get home tonight. I will also check on the blurry chart. Sorry about that! I swear that I put that chart in the Editable Docs folder, but I seem to be losing my mind these days! Sometimes the charts are blurry in the PowerPoints because I take screen captures of them; however, I try to include the original Word document in the file. I need to check this one because I probably left it out. I'll email you tonight!

Hi Sunni,

Would you be able to send the geography power point in a different format? My computer will not let me view it.

Oh no! Unfortunately, I don't have a different version other than the PowerPoint & PDF that are in the ZIP file. I'm sorry that I'm not tech savvy enough to help, but the good news is that Teachers Pay Teachers is excellent at this kind of stuff. There is a "contact us" button on the main page of the website (I believe it's the bottom left), and they are pretty quick to respond with tech support. I'm so sorry that I couldn't help you!

Hi Jennifer,
I can add the PowerPoints when I get home tonight--no problem at all. Sorry about that! I started updating all my files to include the PowerPoints, but hadn't made it to those yet. Is there one that you'd like right away? If so, I can email it to you. Thanks for the support! And for your comments--they are so kind & much appreciated! :)

UPDATE: I just added the PowerPoints!

I bought the entire kit and am really enjoying it so far.

However on the "Climate & Trade" slide ...
the info is the same as from "Location & trade" do you have the correct information for this slide?
