Hi Chrissy
Just wondering if you might be able to do an Australia 'friendly' interjections page for me. The first sentence is the problem. Huh is not a word we use often, and favourite has a u in it.

Some suggestions might be:-
Wow! That's a great book.
Oh! I can't find my book.
Hey! That's my book.

Don't know if it's possible to email me a pdf of a changed page.

I love the resource and appreciate the work you have done. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Chrissy!

I recently purchased your Camp Read-a-Lot packet and just love the ideas and materials provided! It has been a great resource as we are planning our own literacy night in our elementary school! Thank you for making this available! Would there be any chance of being able to get an editable packet? There are a few elements we are adjusting for our school, but would love for the background and design to be the same! I absolutely will not repost or use in any ill way...this is just for our own school's use this year! Thank you! ~Stacey

Hi Hope! I'm sorry you're having trouble reading the document. I printed out the pages and was able to read everything, and others haven't had difficulty reading the fonts either, so I'm not sure which parts you're having trouble with. I'm wondering if it's possibly a formatting issue or something along those lines? Can you tell me which pages you're unable to read and then I'll see if there's something I can do? Thank you!

Most of the information comes from the sites that I mentioned in the back of the pack, such as Ben's Guide to Government (I recommend this one). However, you could use books such as So You Wanna Be President? or informational texts. If you search on Amazon for "government books for kids" there are many suggested titles for information. One is "Branches of Government (Government in Action)" by John Hamilton. I hope you find some resources to use!

Hi! I'm going through some of my materials and found an error on this one. You may have fixed it by now.

I honestly don't use daily five because it cuts their independent working time into smaller pieces and I feel that I need to build their stamina to forty five minutes or an hour. If you have longer than a ninety minute block go reading, it could work, though!

Hello,

I had a question about posting a new file. If your file has more than 20 slides, when you upload it to TpT and your at the last step of downloading thumbnails for previews, will the site only allow you to pick from the first 20 slides even if you have more? I'm just curious because I uploaded a file that was 36 slides, but TpT only allowed me to pick from the first 20 when choosing my thumbnails for previews. I'm hoping all 36 slides are in the actual download.

On the Frayer Model for Vocabulary in the Water, Water Everywhere Science Pack what do students write in the "nonexample" box for vocabulary such as "weather" and "climate"?

Nonexamples of weather might include a tsunami, volcanic eruption, or other natural disaster that is not part of weather. Kids often mix these up. Climate might be similar. Hope that helps!

Janet W. re: Bee Hallway or Classroom Display Materials
Is there any way you could add on a red bee name tag? I would love to use these for table name tags and have yellow, green, blue, and red tables? Thanks!

Currently, I don't have any clipart that would be similar in red. I will keep my eyes open for it, and if I find one, I'll notify the buyers that the product has been updated. Thanks!

Buyer re: Government Pack
I bought this and LOVE it. I have one question - on the "Which Branch is it?" page, what is the answer for #4 The ____branch provides for safety?
Thanks

Thanks! I would consider that the Executive Branch provides for safety because they are responsible for homeland security and the FDA, etc.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught elementary school for nine years. I spent eight years in fourth grade, a year in third, and now I'm on my second year as a Literacy Coach/Leader for my campus. As an instructional specialist for reading and writing, I try to create tools my teachers will find useful when working with real kids and real learning. I'm a past president of the El Paso Reading Council, the local branch of the International Reading Association, and I'm also a Teacher-Consultant for the West Texas Writing Project, the local site of the National Writing Project. I love to teach all contents, but my heart is in literacy!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to work with all content areas and develop my own units rather than use textbooks or programs. Real reading, real writing, real experiences, real conversations :)

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was Teacher of the Year for my campus for the 2010 - 2011 school year and the 2012-2013 school year. I've presented at IRA conferences as well as an NWP National Meeting.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Partway through my reading masters!
