Hi there,

Sure - Let me explain. The product with 100+ pages contains the official governor's Common Core State Standard document. I did this so teachers could have the LONG version and also check for validity. However, some teachers did not like the length of the download so I shortened it. If you would like the official long document, I'd be happy to send it to via email. If you have it on the first grade download then you are set. If you want to followup with this, please email me at cathyhink@gmail.com.

I hope this helps,

Cheers,

Hi there,

Gosh, you will need to find out if you can "IMPORT" files from the Promethean or ActivInspire. I can also send this to you in .pdf format and then you should be able to import in that format.

I did see that someone had a Smartboard calendar - sorry I don't remember where I saw it on TpT -- maybe you could do a search for Smartboard Calendar and find something.

If you want to "chat" more - just email me at cathyhink@gmail.com.

Hi Lane,

Thanks for your question. I have used a variety of early language assessments. They consist primarily of upper and lowercase identification, phonemic awareness, rhyming skills, beginning, end and middle sound identification, sight word recognition, and of course IRR's. This past year our district adopted the Words Their Way curriculum so I used their Kindergarten Assessment for Early Language Development. If you would like samples or specifics email me at cathyhink@gmail.com and we can explore this further. Thanks also for visiting my catalog and for the purchase and kind words, I hope this resource will make your reading instruction a bit easier.

Thanks,
Connie
February 20, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Cathy's Collection
Cathy's Collection  (TpT Seller)
Hi Connie,

Thanks for the question.

The basic difference is that the K-1 has an area to track early literacy skills (letter id, letter sound, rhyming, blending, etc.) and the K-2 does not have this section.

I have uploaded a preview of the K-1 so you can compare (I didn't realize I left that out - so thanks for bringing this to my attention) :D

FYI: After working with some other teachers last year I have prepared yet another version - it is called Reading Conference Record (Reading Continuum and Running Record Tips) - this has more teacher reference tips however the place to record quarterly formal running record summaries is removed (this is available on both the K-1 and the K-2 versions).

Sorry for the confusion, but there are so many options that I wasn't sure which teachers would find most useful - so I am posting them all :D

Cheers and thanks again for the question - I hope this helps!

How and when do I choose my printing option and/or font? Thanks, Sherry van Duym
November 6, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Cathy's Collection
Cathy's Collection  (TpT Seller)
Hi Sherry,

The file is what is known as a .pdf file so it is not editable - so basically it is a photo of a text page and hence not editable - so the font cannot be changed. As for printing options - these depend on the type of printer and software that comes with your printer. I can print landscape or portrait and I can also adjust whether I print back to back. If you want to make it smaller you can adjust the size it appears on the screen in the Adobe Reader software (usually at top of screen and it has a percentage box), then take a screen capture and print it.

I hope this helps - if you want to write me further, I can be reached at cathyhink@gmail.com.

Thanks for asking the question.

HI Allison,

Sorry to hear you are having a problem. I think the problem is that this is an Interactive whiteboard file and a pdf file. If you don't have an IWB then you probably would not have success. Here are a couple of options.

Option 1. The interactive software is FREE from Promethean is is called ActivInspire. You can download the software and then view it and use it on your PC. If you have a document camera you can then use it to show as a whole class experience.

Option 2. Feel free to email me at cathyhink@gmail.com and I can send the whole thing as a pdf which will work on any platform.

Please email me if you have any other questions and concerns. I want you to be happy with this product and will do all I can to help.

If your smartboard does not allow you to import Promethean Activboard files but does allow you to import pdf files then email me at cathyhink@gmail.com and let me which math product you bought and I will send it to you in pdf format. You can then import it and open it from there.

September 3, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Cathy's Collection
Cathy's Collection  (TpT Seller)
Hi,

Here are a couple of options.

What I do each year is that I open the original file. Before we even begin to enter or change it, I click on the "File" tab and "Save As" and rename the file for that particular year, i.e. "Calendar 2012 2013". Then when it is time to close it - you can tap/click on the (X) and it will ask if you want to save the changes (you reply "yes") and voila, your changes are saved. Once the flipchart is open and you added information you can also click on the "File" tab and click on "Save" and the chart with data will be preserved.

I hope this answers your question - if you have others, please email me at cathyhink@gmail.com

Thanks for visiting my catalog, for the question and for buying the calendar flip chart.

Hi (again),

I researched your question on the Promethean site and from what I can tell it would be "hit or miss" on trying to use a flip chart created with Promethean ActivInspire on other Interactive Whiteboards. If you have "tech" people in your district you may want to check with the. For me, when I download a Smartboard file, I use an "Import" feature to load it into Promethean - sometimes I have to clean it up because Promethean uses different features than the Smartboards. If your smartboard has an import feature that may work. If you want to try it, email me at cathyhink@gmail.com and let me know what you want a small sample of flip chart and I will send it to you and you can see for yourself.

Cheers,
Cathy

This is made for Promethean - let me look into how to save it in smartboard file. Woud you please email me at cathyhink@gmail.com and give me what file extension you see on smartboard files? In the meantime I'll some hunting on this side :D

I am the Reading Resource Specialist at my school. Our county is going to roll out the CCSS in first and second next year. I will be doing a professional development for K-5 teachers to assist with implementing the standards. I purchased your first grade set, (as I am a former first grade teacher and want this for my files). I know that your K set was a freebie. Please know that I will not pass on my purchased item, but will guide them towards purchasing their own for classroom use. Any chance you will be creating 2-5? I know it will be helpful for those teachers. Also, am I correct in understanding that I can show them what I have found, but not pass out for others to use? If not, please clarify so that I share in an appropriate and acceptable manner. Thanks! Love your checklist! I especially love the form that has the standard highlighted in a different color.

Hi. Thanks for the question. I have created checklists for Kindergarten through Fourth grade. I will be creating Fifth and Sixth in coming weeks. If you like these you may also like my Reading Logs and Reading Poster. I would live to send it to you as a freebie and get your feedback. The Reading Specialists at our school love them, but they don't sell here at TpT so I would love another set of eyes to check it out. If you would like to check them out, please email me at cathyhink@gmail.com.

Cheers

Cathy

Hi Vierling,

I am glad it worked for you. Check back in a couple of days as I am planning to update the student checklist. I already updated the instructional checklist so the wording precisely matches the original Common Core State document. I hope you find it helpful.

Hi Cathy's Collection,
I purchased the Common Core Instructional Checklist for first grade. I was just wondering if you had one filled in or know where I can find an approximate timeline for how someone may have taught the standards?

Hi,

I do have one filled in for Kindergarten. The timeline is for one school year. I jot in the various dates or write in the name of the lessons. I can scan mine and then email it to you if you want to email me. My email is cathyhink@gmail.com.

Many of the items in the Common Core State Standards are aligned to our curriculum here in Washington. Some standards however, (for me it was poetry and long vowels), I realized I had not covered yet. So, I looked for items on TpT to fill in those voids. Does that make sense? Just email me with any additional questions and I will do my best to help. Thanks for purchasing the product and for the question. I hope this helps.
