Hi, I just downloaded your "Using and Atlas". I loved it and especially loved the list of online resources. However, on the first page first paragraph, you have a typo. "..its called an atlas" should be "...it's called...... I'm not trying to be picky but if someone plans on putting that page up on a screen in front of kids then it might matter.

I recently purchased the investigations unit cards 1-9. I absolutely love them...thanks. Just one question, I love the face that units 4-9 have the particular unit in the top right corner and wish the units 1-3 did. do you happen to have that information so I can add to these cards?
thanks

That is something I'm hoping to fix and should be uploading that soon. One of the things I've found is that a lot of cards (with the exception of unit 2 geometry) are needed for units 1 and 3. I recently had a computer crash, but fortunately it was one of the files recovered, so I'll try to upload the marked ones soon. Hope that helps!

Chrissy,
I am fixing to purchase your Data and Graphing Unit and the Geometry Unit as they are materials that go along with Investigations. I am also going to purchase the vocabulary cards. Do you have any other units that are supplemental to 2nd Grade Math Investigations? If so, I would be very interested in purchasing them. Do you plan to create more materials to supplement the Investigations Units?
Thanks so much,
Stephanie

thanks so much for asking, Stephanie. I plan on doing a few more, or at least supplements, to meet my state standards, since Investigations doesn't cover as much. I usually try to label them as well, or at least in the description! We are just starting Unit 3, and will try to make some ordinal and odd/even activities. Thanks for your interest! :)

Okay, I may have just sent you a message that was not complete! On the history review, for "People have the ____ customs and traditions in our state." is the correct answer a) same?

Chrissy Youel  (TpT Seller)
I just looked it over and the answer SHOULD be different, but it's written with "the" which makes more sense (grammatically) to be same...sorry about that! If you want to just scratch out "the" for now (not sure how that got by me - must have been thinking true/false) I will change the original and re-upload (so you can redownload it again at no expense) as soon as I can!

Sorry again and thanks for catching the mistake. Not sure how I missed that when we used them last year!

I had listed them separate (the 5 books) but you gave me the great idea to bundle them together! They are normally $2 apiece per book, but I put all 5 in a bundle for $8....if you'd like to look at them separately, they are in my store under: Henry and Mudge and the Yellow Moon, Henry and Mudge and the Best Day of All, Poppleton (Book 1), Mr. Putter and Tabby Walk the Dog, and The Relatives Came.

For the bundled pack, since I had trouble uploading images from the zipped file, I included "Henry and Mudge and the Forever Sea" packet as a preview/freebie. :)

If you try to redownload, and it still doesn't work - I can email you the packet. Granted, it's the same version, but it seemed to print okay with me when I tried. Sorry this happened - I know it's very frustrating!

Thank you for the help and the great game idea!

n/a
Chrissy Youel  (TpT Seller)
Sorry! SCOOT is an active game kids can play that make a great review.

Before you play the actual game with cards, its best if they practice. Set a pattern for your students so they know which is the "next" desk to scoot to. I usually tell my more responsible students where to go and the rest follow whoever is in "front" of them.

Basically, the students go from seat to seat (they usually scoot to the seat next to them) and have a set amount of time to read and answer the card at that seat. They then write their answer on the answer sheet. When you call "SCOOT!" the students move to the next desk. They cannot move until you say the word (I usually have them turn the card over when they finish with the question).

I usually try to set up the same pattern for each game/subject we play. I read somewhere that its best to practice the kids scooting first (with no cards), and they were right! I had to practice for the first game we did last spring, and never had to do a practice session again. The kids really like it and it gets your wiggly ones time to, well, wiggle!

I hope that answers your question. My brain isn't always on target after school. I'm also including a link to one of the blogs that talks about Scoot. Good luck and I hope your kids enjoy! Thanks for purchasing! :)

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am in my 16th year of teaching elementary school in a rural county. Before then, I taught an exploratory class, as well as an at-risk writing class for middle school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like for my students to be engaged learners, so we use a lot of manipulatives and simulations, when possible! I often teach students with learning difficulties, as well as attentional issues, so often my products are geared towards those students! I am also a mother to a child with ADHD/anxiety, so I feel that adds more understanding on where my students are coming from!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year Nominee

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Education/Psychology and a Master's Degree (MS). I am licensed to teach NK-8 in General Education and K-12 in Library Media Science.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a mother of two - a boy and a girl. Through them, as well as my students, I feel that I become a better teacher, especially when I can put myself in their shoes! I also have a teacher's blog filled with ideas, links, and freebies: please come visit me! www.adventuresn2grade.blogspot.com
