Dana re: 4 in a Row Phonics Combo Pack
Hi! I love your product and my students love playing it! I and they noticed that there is an error on the /ea/ and /ee/ page. The word "these" is on there and therefore can never be covered. Hope that helps! :)

I love this product. I just have one problem and I would have done this in the FAQ's if I had the time to figure out where I was supposed to go. The -ea and -ee page has five words that cannot be a choice from the spinner. They are me, we, she, he and these. Thanks.

Unit 2 is available as a bundle. I have completed Units 3 and 4 as well but I'm tweaking a few things before bundling.

Thank you for your interest. Those chapters are something I began but I have not finished. I will continue to work on them. As you know with the "Singapore Approach" there is so much to cover. I will retrieve them from the backburner though! :D

Purchased your "rocking around the ccs" Christmas math centers. Love it! I was wondering if you could possibly fix the fact family for 6 + 3 = 9. It needs the subtraction related facts. There are 4 addition problems instead of 2 addition and 2 subtraction.

I am SOOOO sorry. I can't believe I didn't notice that...and neither did my kiddos.

Thank you for bringing it to my attention--I have uploaded a version with the correct fact families. If there are ever any problems with my products please let me know, I greatly appreciate it.

I originally made these on Microsoft Publisher, I no longer have that program on my new computer. I tried to share 2 previews below (copy & paste the links) that will give you a better idea of what you'll receive. Should you choose to purchase them I have 4 individual sets but I also bundled them--if you buy the bundle you only pay for 3 sets, the 4th is free. thanks!

I do listen to reading but I wasn't able to do it until I got the supplies last year which was very close to the end of the year. I do have the .ppt but it's at work, not home. If you download the GingerSnaps D5 document you can get the image. Hope that works until I can update. :D

The "Meet the Teacher" pages are in .pdf format because they are 3 separate files. You need to have something to 'unzip' the files. Most computers have this already. If you download the files and double click on them they should either open or take you to a winzip wizard. If this does not work please send me your email address and I can send you the individual files.

Hi Brenda,

I just downloaded and printed your nonsense word fluency summer edition game and I realized that 3 of the pages have the same words "zef, sal, poz." Is it possible for you to fix this? I like the idea of the game and would like to use it with students in the coming weeks, but I am disappointed about the repetition of words. Thank you.
