once I purchase a digital download...how do I get to it to open it and start using it ??

Bright Concepts 4 Teachers
You need to make sure you have updated PDF software installed on your computer. Then, locate where you store your downloaded items on your computer. Click on the file you want to open and print the pages you want to use. If you have any other technical issues please contact TpT and open a ticket with them. They are great at providing help and resources.

There is at least one activity for each standard. Several have more than one. There are also problem solving pages that address the same standards as well.

Hi! I am so interested in purchasing this, and I see on previous questions that you used this in spiral notebooks. So I went onto your blog and saw that you purchased them for a penny at staples, but I was wondering what size notebook you bought (how many pages, did you do subject NB)? Also, I've never done interactive notebooks before, do you have a blog post on how you set it up with your kids? Thanks for your help!
July 16, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Bright Concepts 4 Teachers
Arianna,
Thank you so much for contacting me! I used wide ruled, single subject, 70 page spiral notebooks. Right now is the best time to purchase them because all the office supply stores are having their Back To School sales. I do not have a blog post specifically on how to set up the notebooks, but I will write one once I can get into my classroom from summer. Great idea! I can tell you this, I cut out all the tabs and glue them into the notebooks to get the kids started. They do everything else with me modeling the set up. Please email me with any questions as you go through the process. brightconcepts4teachers@gmail.com

I will be teaching 3rd grade next school year and have a vision for a Star Wars themed multiplication bulletin board and fast facts system. What are the chances of the Star Wars themed pack being available for mulitiplciation facts? I'm sure it is slim, but I thought I should ask before I go whiting out all of the + and "Adding" and turning them to x and "Multiplying". I'm willing to pay a few extra dollars for a "custom" pack, if that is a possibility. kathleenstafford@gmail.com Thank you!!

I am interested in your product and have already a class set of composition notebooks. How many pages will I use for this product?
June 30, 2014 Report inappropriate comment

You will need an entire composition notebook for each student. You will also need to shrink each student page slightly before making copies of each student page so they will fit.

Hey!
Your math journals were SUPER highly suggested to me :), they look AMAZING! I was wondering if you had ever considered making some without the common core labels? I teach in Canada and I would need to use some 2nd and some 3rd for my Grade three class, and I would rather not send home stuff with "Grade 2" labels on the student pages (I know, seems like a small detail... ) I could always white it out I suppose, but just thought I'd ask just in case :)
Thanks! These are on my wishlist! I can't wait to show them to my team so we can all purchase them :)

Hi there,
We purchased the interactive math notebooks as first and second grade teachers, thinking that it would be a good resource to use from year to year. As we are comparing the finished products, though, we are very disappointed because the activities are so similar. As a matter of fact, most of them are identical activities with different numbers. It seems like our first graders who did this will be bored with this next year. We love the product, but are disappointed by the similarity between the grade levels. Perhaps it should be advertised as a "1-2" product instead of two separate products.
May 19, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Bright Concepts 4 Teachers
Rebecca,
I am sorry to hear that you were displeased with the similarities between these two products. I created the products in this manner so that if students were to use them two years in a row, they might be familiar with the format. Many of the first and second grade math standards are similar but at a higher level. Please remember to view any and all product previews so that you can make an informed decision prior to purchasing. I hope your students have enjoyed creating their notebooks and can see how much they have learned this school year.
