YES! I would love to read the blog post about partnering when you post it! thanks so much!! :) I was looking to use the milk and cookie partner idea with my math groups. Now, I have the two groups listed on the board with a little symbol next to each name- the symbol tells them who their partner is. sounds like this idea is for more of the WBT idea which i also do, where you talk to your partner about something u learned "teach"... I am so visual! haha! still not 100% sure how they work but hopefully your blog post will clarify some of my ?S for me! thanks again!!

The way I usually use these partners is in an informal discussion format. Think of "tell your elbow partner." In my experience, if you think pair share a lot, elbow partners get old.

I like to have a name for each partner. That way when we talk with partners, I can say, "Milk partner, tell your cookie partner________." Or I can tell the kiddos which of the partners talks first. It is also nice to have the kids place he desk cards on the top of their desk to allow them to know who they are working with quickly. The teacher sheet is for you. Keep it in your plan book or post it around the room. Depending on your kids, you could allow them to choose partners (within some parameters!) or you can pick for them. I am so glad you asked. I am writing an upcoming blog post about partnering. If you want, I can email you the link when it comes out.

All units of fifth grade are included in the bundle. They are the goals for the unit, but with a space for students to rate themselves with a scale.

Trish re: Theme Task Cards
Hello Brandi, I bought your Theme Task Cards and I love them! I have bought many things this summer and to print them off in color is costing me lots of money in ink. Is there any way you have these cards in a less ink version? If I print them off in black ink, then it will take a lot of that ink too since they are a solid background. Just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. Thanks, Trish

Brandi, I teach with this series. I am interested but would like to purchase a unit that I am currently teaching or one that I will be, so I can see if I want to buy the product I have already taught. Will you be creating Unit 5 or 6 of the 5th grade treasures stories?

Hi Brandi,
I also teach in Oklahoma and am trying to get my students ready for the new writing test. Do I need a certain textbook to go along with your writing activities or is the text included?
Thanks,
Janet

The textbook is Treasures (Reading) by McGraw Hill/Macmillan

Most of the prompts in the packet are opinion writing. Where do you teach? I am working on some new packets with text included. What are your needs? Maybe I can consider it on these new packets.
