I bought 5 Step Problem Solving yesterday. It looks like it will be a helpful resource, but the Notebook file has some formatting issues. I can send a screen shot by e-mail, but I'll try to describe it here. The underlines and circles on steps 1 and 2 are out of place, and some text is getting cut off. This could be a font issue (I don't have the font Mufferaw). Please advise.

Hi. This is definitely a font issue. If you will send me an email, I will be happy to send the font to you. Or, you can go to this address and downloaded for free yourself:

You can email me at Betsy@ClassroomCaboodle.com. Also, do you know how to install a font? Is pretty simple, but not everybody knows how to do it.

Hi Joan! I'm glad that you and your students love my spelling program. I also appreciate the fact that you pointed out an error so that I could correct it.

I've updated week 10 (on both the spelling sheets and the answer key) and updated the product page. If you go to your purchases, you will be able to download a new course with the correction.

Please let me know if you have any other questions and thanks for shopping at my Classroom Caboodle store!

I'm sorry you misunderstood my intention. I am not attempting to sell anything.

It appears from some of your products that you are trying to make it easier for teachers to implement the new Common Core standards. That is our goal. I thought you might have relevant expertise and might be able to offer helpful input.

I think it is important to give public school teachers - like my sister and mother - better tools.

Again, my apologies if that offended you.

Hi! Our startup company (www.metrialearning.org) is developing a suite of software tools for K-12 educators. We have created a free tool that helps teachers create high-quality, differentiated common core lesson plans.

I would like to get your feedback on the free product we are creating, and also on how to make teachers aware of it through sites like Teachers Pay Teachers.

We are located in Bellevue, WA. I would like to schedule a phone call to introduce myself and tell you a little more about what we're working on.

Thanks in advance for your advice,

I'm sorry for the miscount, Cheryl. Your page count is correct...I had duplicated this product entry from another and did not update the pages when I changed the rest of the information. I have fixed it. Regarding math...you are in luck! I am currently working on the 3rd grade math standards - it will look like the 4th and 5th grade ones I have done. Just finished standards for finding area today, so I hope to be done some time this coming week. If you follow my store, you'll see when I post it.

Everything looks great; I have a few questions though to clarify a few points. Are these lessons suitable for the mini-lesson time period each day for the school year? Is this just for Reading or is Writing tied in as well? I am looking for 6th grade appropriate Reading mini-lessons and this looks like it's what I need. Thank you!

Thanks for your great questions! Yes, this program is perfect for the mini-lesson portion of your Reading Workshop. The focus is definitely on reading, but because students are writing their responses, you could formatively assess some writing standards as well. Please let me know if you have more questions. Also, let me know how your Reading Workshop goes with this program! Contact me at betsy@classroom-teacher-resources.com

Nope! I created this spelling plan based on common spelling rules and my own classroom experiences.

I have never made the source files available before, and few have ever asked for them. But I could send the labels to you after you purchase if you email me at betsy@classroom-teacher-resources.com

HOWEVER...they are Microsoft Publisher files. Are you able to edit those? And some of the labels are sideways on the document, so you'd have to know about inserting and rotating text boxes.

Yes, the capital Q does look like a 2.

FYI...I have just updated all of my decor sets, including this one, and they now contain both D'Nealian and Zaner-Bloser cursive and print. They are done, just have to get them posted...in the next few days.

Buyer re: Reading Common Core Response Stems for Student Journals - 4th Grade - Full Year
hi,
i'm curious if you use these with longer stories/chapter books and/or student chosen books. from the description i'm getting the impression that the texts you're talking about are very short....

thanks, sarah

Sarah,

I use shorter books to teach the standard using a gradual release (I do - we do - you do). When students move to do the work independently, they use a book they have chosen. We don't use chapter books for this work until later in the year and students can apply any of the reader response cards that are appropriate to the text they have selected.

Before we use reader response stems with chapter books, students must be able to explain why chapter books are arranged they way they are, why the author chose to chunk the story the way they did, etc. (I teach explicit lessons on "How to Read Chapter Books.")

The focus should be on mastering standards first, then choosing from among them the most important/appropriate ones to apply to student-chosen, just-right chapter books.

Thanks for checking out this product and let me know if I can answer any other questions for you!

Sorry to leave this comment here - I don't see a blog link or any way to email you. :)
Have you seen the thread on the TPT seller forum about trying to arrange meet and greets for sellers by state? We only have 2 for WA so far, but I know there are many great sellers out there. We'd love for you to join. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=246293#p246293
I was thinking maybe OR & WA could combine?

I purchased the Giant measuring activity. However, when I downloaded the activity to print the students recording sheet and lesson plan, I have the same thing you can preview before you can buy the product. I have a huge sign going across the lesson plan that says “Step-by-step instruction" It's all over the file, can you fix this?

This packet is not saved properly. I would like a refund unless the product is fixed. Right now it just opens as an image not a packet of materials.

I am not able to unzip first, right click the downloaded zip folder, and select "extract all." I have tried going to the website www.classroom-teacher-resources.com several times to send a message, but it will not go through.

Thank you.

Did you unzip first? You may need to right click the downloaded zip folder and select "extract all."

If this doesn't work, you can send me a message through my website and I will email the files separately (not in a Zip file).

Let me know!

Hi, I teach first grade and wondered if this Reading Jedi could be used for my gifted first graders, or do you have one that is geared towards the primary grades? Thanks.

Hm. I'm thinking that all ten levels might be too much even for gifted first graders (level 10 is a lot of work), but going up to level five might work. If you would like to see a sample of the first five levels, contact me through my website at www.classroom-teacher-resources.com and I'll send them to you. Then you can decide if you want to buy.

Thanks for your interest!

I have a question about your copyright. If I was to buy this (which I probably will!), I would like to make a copy for each student and have them do one or two sheets a day over a few months as a math warmup. I just wanted to make sure this copy idea was allowed, since your copyright said no photocopies!
