How is the game played?
September 2, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Brandy Baele  (TpT Seller)
I am not sure if you purchased the product or not, but I did leave it open for teachers to use the spinner games as they would like and would work best for them. There are picture cards that can be used or presented to the whole group first to show and practice the beginning sounds of each of the pictures/words. There are 7 spinners games, with four pictures with the first letter sound for each spinner. Each letter of the alphabet is used (there are 2 word/pics for "w" and 2 word/pics for "c" to even the number out). You can divide the class into small groups or use these games during your centers. The students take turns spinning the spinner. Each student can have a copy of the response sheet (which is basically a graph keeping track of what they landed on). When they land on a picture with beginning letter, they can say the letter, beginning sound, and word that corresponds to the picture. Then they can mark it on their response sheet. I think it would also be fun to use candy corn as a way to mark the response sheets. Each of the students in the group should get to take several turns with each spinner. The groups can then move to another location to another spinner game. This should give everyone practice hearing the beginning sounds, corresponding the sounds to the different letters and to the different words, and practicing saying the different sounds. These are not competetive games, but ones that work on taking turns and working together while practicing good skills. If you would like to print even more copies of the spinners, you could do so and make the games for partners instead of small groups. Also, if you are a teacher who works with individual students, such as in special education classes, it would be a good task to teach and reinforce skills one on one as well. Once shown how to use the spinner games, students could use these as independent practice when their other work is completed too. Another thing that you could do with the picture cards, is to put them around the room, and have a "write the room". The students can find them and then write beginning letter of the words that they found or the word depending on their ability. There are many ways that you could use the spinner games in the classroom and these are just some of the ways that I could think of.

Are there lesson plans to go with the card sets?
June 12, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Brandy Baele  (TpT Seller)
Not an exact lesson plan that says what you do first, second, etc. Some of the materials just include choice cards and ways to use them. Other ones such as the tattling, I messages, and good and bad thoughts have specific information that you can use to teach to the students before using the cards. I apologize if you thought there would be more included. Sometimes I use the cards in different ways and not always follow one specific lesson which is why I included the ideas sheet. Please let me know if there is something else you need that would help you when using the materials. You can email me at brandybaele@yahoo.com. I can provide you with more information if needed.

Hi again, Brandy. Glad you liked the website! btw I wrote TPT. They suggested you "empty your cache". It may simply be full. haha Greek to me, sorry. Just reporting back. Our older websites; www.VocalsByLocals.com -kids galore (We were almost "Glee"..long story--the Crew Story vid is kinda cool) VBL is lots of material, nostalgia, a lot of the tracks we use here, lots of stuff plus on the left menu there's a "kids" link for younger classroom material/vids. Last website is www.BridgesandBonn.com--again, similar stuff but a very sweet site w/Izzy Bridges. Thanks for your interest, Princess :-) Honored. Have a magical weekend!

We are a small school district and there are only 2 social workers - the other one works with jr high and high school and I will also let her know because I know she would be interested in the songs for the older students. Thank you for writing TpT for me. It may have just been my laptop but I am glad it is working now. :) Brandy

Hi Brandy. Happy Heart's Day! Thanks for your interest in our tunes :-) I will write TPT and let them know you are having a problem. I also suggest you might want to write them since you seem to be the only teacher having that issue with our page--the techno gliche may very well in your own store's code--I'm sure they can fix it. Or at least explain to you why you're having problems when no one else is. Hmm.. In the meanwhile, if you'd like to check out our songs full length, there's an abundance of fun stuff on our 3 websites in the form of music videos etc you can brouse through if you have the time. We've been making an effort to bring everyone here to find us (it's just so much more fun being part of a community! ) but there's no way we can put our entire library of songs vids up here and all our songs. Hello. I'm working on 2 new ones right now. lessia@iambullyproofmusic.org is my email if you'd like me, in the meanwhile, to simply email a free tune :-) Smiles!

Buyer re: Tattling or Reporting? - Teaching Students the Difference
Hello Ms. Beale,

I am interested in ordering this product 'tattling vs. reporting' from you. Do you deliver to the United Kingdom? If you do, do you accept PayPal? Also, because the resource will be used with English pupils, there are differences between words we all use for eg 'math' to you is 'maths' to us. Would I be able to change this? If not it is not a big problem as I can always explain to the pupils that it is an American resource.

Thanks for your time,

Elsa.

I am not sure what you mean by ordering the product. It is a downloadable version, not a hard good which is sent. If you pay for it through TPT, you can download and print it out. There is not a way to change it if you buy and download it. However, if you purchase the product, you can let me know and I could send you the pages with the changes through your email if you would like. If you let me know what words you would need to be changed, I could do that for you. My email is brandybaele@yahoo.com. Thank you for your interest!

So great hearing what you need and connecting! I'm guessing we are dancing at the same party :-) To answer; We have a song "Flying" which has proven very popular in classrooms. Sample lyrics are in the write up. I'm guessing it might be right up your alley. We also just put up "Beyond the Bend" which has been very well received for years by kids/parents/teachers. Both tunes are geared towards the younger kids and empower kids to not give up or give in! We'll have a lesson plan with each very soon, even karaoke tracks. In general, our experience has been when we strengthen a young person's understanding of the world around them, they get stronger and try harder--it's kind of a lovely circle. After I wrote these two tunes and they were such huge successes, I moved on to adding more and more deeper insight into lyrics and not just the "pump up" phrases. haha these 2 pretty much cover the automatic pump up. Our "Fearless" tune (oh, the mail, the mail) seems to create the same magic for slightly older kids (fourth and up) and even adults. Sorry this answer is so long--just trying to answer well! Did you notice, btw, we have a Princess song too? Girl power 101. Just thought of that..

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a School Social Worker for a total of eleven years. I currently work in a small district in Illinois in two schools which include preK through 5th grade. As I am the only social worker in my two schools (and there is no counselor), I provide counseling and social skills training to all students who need it. I also provide social skills classroom groups for all classes from preK to 5th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a School Social Worker, who provides whole classroom groups as well as individual counseling, I feel like I am enthusiastic, positive, understanding, and a good listener.
