Hello,
I purchased Spring Reading Task Cards (freebie) and love them. Are the task cards (comprehension task cards) similar?

I'm not sure I understand your question. I only have one set of Spring Task Cards, so it sounds like you might already have them.
Or, if you downloaded "Spring Mix," that is a set of three worksheets that each include one passage from the task cards. The passages are similar, but the set of task cards has thirty cards.
Hope this answers your question!

Would this work well with my 7th grade classes or is it geared more towards the elementary levels?

I would use it with 7th grade. I don't think it would be too easy, unless you have advanced classes. I tried to design the slides so that they would appeal to middle schoolers.

Hi There,
I love this product idea! Do you happen to have a digital copy that is black and white? I'm thinking, the black text on the blue background will make it hard to read if it isn't printed in color, which I can't do. Thank you!

Sorry, I don't have a black and white copy.
I just tried printing a page in black and white to see how it would come out. The background was a medium grey - the print was clearly readable, but it did look pretty plain without the colors.

I love your Christmas riddles for the SmartBoard. I have Halloween riddles I do with my class. My only problem is I don't have a SmartBoard. I have a Promethean and can not open the file. Is there any way you would send me a copy of the riddles so that I can make it on a flip chart for my Promethean Board? I would appreciate it very much. You could just send it to me in a document. My email address is: stacy.seal@gulfportschools.org Thank you in advance and I hope that you have a wonderful holiday season!

The same Christmas riddles are in my Christmas Riddles PowerPoint which is also free in my TPT store. If you download that, you can copy the riddles, or just use it as it.

My Prefix Package contains three PowerPoints, but no worksheets.
If you're looking for just worksheets, my Prefixes Worksheet Set contains eleven worksheets.
Hope this helps-

Buyer re: Context Clues - Nine Worksheet Set
Hi there. I am looking for paragraphs in which the students use context clues to figure out the meaning. Are there any in this package?

Classroom in the Middle  (TpT Seller)
Three of the worksheets ask students to use context clues to choose the correct words to fill in the blank spaces in paragraphs. Three others ask students to use context clues to choose the correct definition for words in single sentences.
Thanks for asking!

Ed-U-Smart  (TpT Seller) re: Spring Mix
I run the blog/website www.ed-u-smart.org. Each week I do Wacky Wednesday freebies. These freebies link directly to free products at TpT. In the near future I plan spring themed reading freebies. After looking at this product, I would love to include it in my Wacky Wednesday freebies. May I do so?

You can check out my site at www.ed-u-smart.org. Go to the freebies page. I would link directly to this product on your TpT's page.

Thanks for your help,

I'm not sure what to tell you, since the PowerPoint still seems to open fine for me, but I'm checking with TPT's support team. I'm sure they will figure it out.

Buyer re: Context Clues Package
I'm looking for a worksheet that has a reading passage and has a question asking what the underlined context clues means and has mutliple choice questions then a question asking what the text evidence was for the context clue. Can you verify this Context Clue Package has this information. I'm basically looking just to buy worksheets to pratice with my daughter. Thanks

Classroom in the Middle  (TpT Seller)
The one worksheet set in the package - called Context Clues, Three Types - has multiple choice questions and then asks the student to underline or highlight the context clues on a few of the worksheets. I think this set sounds the most like what you are looking for.
If you don't need the PowerPoints in the package, the worksheet sets are also listed individually and you can just buy the set that you want.

I can't seem to get analogies 1-8...otherwise these look good. I'd like the whole set, if possible. Thanks!

Here are the first 8 analogies that you asked about. There is also a key for all of them after the last card in the set.
1. lemonade : drink :: hamburger : eat
2. left : right :: top : bottom
3. dog : puppy :: cow : calf
4. grass : green :: soil : brown
5. ally : war :: teammate : game
6. perimeter: rectangle :: circumference : circle
7. king : queen :: prince : princess
8. glass : break :: paper : tear

B B  (TpT Seller) re: Personification - Figurative Language Practice
Can you explain the meanings of the personification in the poem Summer Grass and in My Town so I can explain the correct meaning with my students?

Classroom in the Middle
Classroom in the Middle  (TpT Seller)
In the line "The rain hears; the rain answers," rain is being personified because it is doing things that a person would do - hearing and answering.
In "My Town," the fence posts are personified because they are doing things that a person would do - gossiping and watching. Also, the cars are personified when the author says that they winked at each other.
Hope this helps-
