Sorry, Jennifer... I do not. I generally just put things on TPT that I use for my class. My Texas fourth graders don't have persuasive writing in their state standards. Maybe one day!

Nope, that's it. But I use those pages for the whole year. There are three different front pages and three different back pages. I mix them up and copy one page front to back for the whole week. I find the activities varied enough that kids don't get bored.

I'm sorry I don't. But look up the one page reference sheets from Region 20. They are very helpful in creating a list of standards to post in the classroom.

Buyer re: Science Fair Labels for Poster
Hi there..you mentioned there was a word template? Where is this? I'm just trying to find the standard labels that are on most science fair projects. The packet we purchased doesn't have a label for "Research" or "References". So I tried to make them in word. I can't figure out the exact font and size..do you happen to know this?

Caroline Sweet  (TpT Seller)
Hello! If you go to the Science section on my page you can see the word template we use. It is not for the labels, but it's what my kids use to type up their information. I'm not sure about the size of labels because I sized some of them down to fit on one line, but the fonts are Patterns and Dots, Top Secret, and Paper Maiche. I hope this helps!

Sorry! I don't, but people keep asking me to make them. I use the one page reference sheets from Region 20 to help me make them and then I adjust the language so kids can understand. I hope this helps!

Thanks, Candis! That's quite a compliment. I don't blog about my class, but I have a kids lit blog that I work on at sweettalksbooks.tumblr.com. I would love for any of my products to be featured on your blog! Just let me know if you need any info from me. I could set the reading graphic organizers to free for a limited time or something like that. I love connecting with other bilingual teachers!

HI Caroline,

I am looking for poems in spanish for character education. Such as poems that deal with respect, integrity etc... Do you have any?

Thank you!

Caroline Sweet  (TpT Seller)
Wow, Christina, tough question! I don't know that there's a book that focuses specifically on character ed. But I love "My Name is Jorge on Both Sides of the River." It's an oldie but a goodie. You might find some of the themes you're looking for in there. I'm typically looking for poetry that deals with identity development and culture for my class usually. I look to poets like Juan Felipe Herrera and Jorge Argueta. I hope that helps!!! Good luck with your search!

I might make one. I teach fourth grade and generally just post things I've made for my own classroom. But people really like these charts. You might check out the one page reference sheets (http://portal.esc20.net/portal/page/portal/esc20public/Curriculum%20Forum/STAAR%20Quick%20Reference%20Guides?_piref130_3278879_130_3278878_3278878.tabstring=English%20Language%20Arts%20Reading%20Tab). I use them to help me create the charts in student-friendly language.

Please let me know if it is possible...I want to laminate and put them up, because they are AMAZING....

Hi Kelly!

I probably won't spend the time to do the document with fifth grade TEKS, but would you like me to post a word doc rather than a pdf of the fourth grade TEKS? I could zip both the pdf and the word doc together so you could change them up. Would that work?

Hi Kelly,

Here's what I did. I left the Spanish on the file still, but I reduced the price. Even if you won't be using the Spanish pages with your class, you might have a colleague who could use them. I also think its very helpful for parents who speak Spanish to have access to some materials to support their children at home. I hope that works for you!

Hi Mottogalli,

This product is a modified STAAR writing rubric. It's written in kid-friendly language. Each of my students has this rubric attached to their writing mini-offices. I use it every time I grade a composition. This file contains both a narrative and an expository rubric based directly on the state-issued rubrics (that are not written in kid-friendly language). The file also contains pages to print that you tape together for a poster size rubric to put up in class. Let me know if you have any other questions! Hope you have a wonderful start to the school year!

-Caroline
