Is there an email listed for you that I am not seeing? I didn't want to post my personal email address in the Q & A.

I am not sure as to our school's curriculum map. I was just hired on Friday and cannot get access to my classroom until I sign all of my documentation, etc. Thank you for your response!

Were you able to update this bundle to include more history files? (as stated in feedback).

Also, did this really only take you a month? This is my first time teaching social studies as well as my first year teaching in Georgia. Do you have any suggestions?

Hi!
You caught me. Ugh--I have been dragging my feet on doing work!! I will get back to it today. Here's what I plan to add to the Africa unit: Apartheid & Mandela (working on now), South Sudan's Independence, and Aids & Famine.

Africa definitely takes longer than one month for me. I need to update that on here. Our Scope & Sequence calls for 9 weeks on Africa. Does your school have a curriculum map? Would you like me to send you mine so that you have a better idea of timing and whatnot. Some schools start with Africa, but we actually start with Southwest Asia, so I've been working on that stuff first.

Welcome to Georgia and to Social Studies! We are glad to have you. :) Leave me your email and I'll send you the Scope & Sequence!

Do you think this product would be adaptable to the 4th Grade GA standards? I'm actually getting reading to move to Brazil to an international school which has adopted the GA SS and Science standards. I'm trying to find resources that are going to be more applicable to my students than just US history! :)

Hello! Brazil--how exciting!! That sounds like an amazing adventure. Wow! To be honest, I'm not familiar with the 4th grade GPS, so I'm not sure if this will work. I'd be more than happy to email it to you and you can see if would work. What's your email address?
I have a friend who teaches 4th grade in GA and she has many SS and Science resources that you might want to check out. Also, I'm pretty sure that if she doesn't have something in her store, she could still create it for you. Here's her store link: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mrs-Ridgeway
Best wishes to you on your BIG adventure!

Oh no! I usually right click on the zip folder and choose the option that says, "extract all". Do you have that option? Do you mind contacting Teachers Pay Teachers support? They are excellent at the technical stuff (unlike me)! There is a button that says "contact us" on the home page. I'm sorry that I'm not much help!

Good morning!
Unfortunately, I can't "bundle the bundles" because the file size is just too big. I tried to do it and it wouldn't upload to the site. But I have an idea--how about I put my entire store on a 20% off sale? (That's how much I would take off the big bundle.) Would that work for you? If so, let me know the day & time you'd like to buy, and I will "turn the sale on" for you and turn it off once you make your purchase. I hope this helps! Sorry about the big bundle issue.

Hello, I am interested in purchasing the Seed Folks packet but I wanted to know what AKS is covered in the packet or what Georgia Standards are covered. I will need to cover the following standards ELACC6RL1 and 2 and ELACC6W1 a-e for 6th-8th grade. Are all of these covered in the packet if not do you have something similar that covers those standards in a packet as this one?

I will be moving to 8th grade Social Studies next year, which is Georgia Studies. Do you have any products for this curriculum? I taught Language Arts for 5 years, then switched to Social Studies and now changing grade levels and I'm looking for educational products similar to the format of the 7th grade curriculum.

Thank you SO much for the compliment. You made my day! :) It sounds like we have had similar teaching experiences with the LA-SS movement. I never thought that I'd enjoy teaching SS as much as LA, but surprisingly, I LOVE it. I hope you had a good 1st year in SS!
Unfortunately, I don't have any 8th grade materials ready to post on here. I haven't actually taught GA studies during the school year, but I have taught it twice during summer school. I can email you the things that I used, if you'd like. What's your email? I'm hoping to update my 8th grade stuff and get it posted on here this summer (fingers crossed)!

Several of the pages in the PDF of the Interactive SS Notebook Kit are greyed out - I would appreciate any help you can offer to obtain the missing pages for the file I paid for.

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.

Hello!

Do you have an editable electronic file of these products? I wanted to use some of the activities, but it seems that the PPT versions are blurry.

Shoot! I'm so sorry! This one slipped by me when I was updating the files to include the editable docs. I'm uploading the revised file right now. Thanks for letting me know. :)

Enjoy your night!

Hi! I just purchased your Asia bundle, and it was SO HELPFUL!! I am about to purchase the rest of your bundles for 6th and 7th grade, as well as all of the government and economics- and wondered if there was any way you would consider doing a "bundle price" for purchasing all of your bundles? Feel free to email me at nigro@fultonschools.org

This is a great unit. I love it and can't wait to start using it with my class. I was wondering if you have the Latin America map tests in word form? When I print them they are very hard to see. Thanks for sharing this unit.

Do you have the Currency Exchange lesson available without purchasing the bundle? I jumped the gun and have purchased almost everything in the bundle.

Hi Sunni,
I don't--it's actually just two Word documents & not enough for an entire lesson. What's your email? I can send them to you. :) Thank you so much for your support!

I purchased your exit slips and LOVE THEM! However, I tried to edit some and was unable to the font wasn't working and then when I tried to change the font it wouldn't print correctly. I wanted to customize some to make them specific to our standards/topics? Can you help? Thank you :)

Hi Jaime,
Thank you so much for the compliment! I wish I could help you, but I haven't had this problem with this file before. :( Do you mind sending a message to Teachers Pay Teachers technical support? 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).

I would like to purchase several of your bundles, and my colleagues are considering the products as well. In order to receive the discount for additional licenses, must they be purchased at the same time?

Thank you!

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! :)

Hello! I love your products! I have purchased many of them here and there and I notice you have a "Currency Exchange" PDF as part of your Economics Bundle now. Do you have that PDF for individual purchase? I have all of the other ones already, so I don't need the bundle. You rock! Thank you!

HI, I purchased your Columbian Exchange lesson plan - it was great! I was wondering whether or not you had a rubric for the thumb print comic and if so can you please provide? Thank you!

Hi,
Thank you! I'm so sorry, but I don't have a rubric for this activity. I have always graded them as "class work" grades (not as projects or anything worth a big percentage), so it's more of a check for completion. I'm sorry I don't have a rubric! :(
