Hey! I absolutely love this nutrition and food unit you have created. However, it refers to several things (Food Discussions 1 and 2) that are not covered in the little reader. Are there other resources you are accessing during this unit and are they something I might get my hands on?
Thank you.

Do you plan on making the weekly reading for lower levels? I have at least 1st & 2nd who are committed to buy it all! I have used both of your freebies with my 3rd grades but I am moving down a grade to 2nd and would hate to miss out on these great lessons.

Hi Brittany,

At this time I don't think I'm going to break up the units and sell them separately. Because I charge less than 10 cents per page, most of the bundles will be under the $3 that TpT allows to be able to check out. Having items under $3 oftentimes deters buyers from making a purchase since they'd be forced to go buy something else to meet that mark.

Yes. This is actually a problem that happens if you have the outdated version of Adobe Reader. Since I created this product with the newer version, you need to go to Adobe's website and download the update for free.

If this still doesn't work, let me know and I can resave it for you and send it by email.

I'm looking through your science unit packets. Do you happen to have a bundle of JUST all of the comprehension passages? I'm looking to do a big non-fiction comprehension passage station, with a variety of non-fiction passages with comp questions. I like the looks of your passages (especially butterflies because we study that), but that's the only part I would use, the passages. I'd love it if you just had a huge bundle of all of your passages, a mixture of science/non-fiction. It's a long shot, but I thought I'd ask!! Thanks!

Hi there! I recently purchased your 2nd and 3rd grade fluency passages and love them! I am interested in your close readings but wondered if you have them bundled more by grade level than monthly theme? I teach 2nd grade ELL students that are approaching grade level so would only use one or two out of each monthly bundle. Is that a possibility?

Hi Robin,

At this time, I don't have passages bundled by grade level. I started making them for my 3rd grade classroom, which is why there are a mix of 2nd-4th grade leveled passages. Creating leveled sets is something that has been requested before and it is on my to-do list for this summer.

Thank you!

Hello,

There is actually not a food pyramid in my unit since it really isn't used anymore. Various diagrams list different amounts, so I didn't included one for that reason. I'm leaving it up to the teacher to choose the one he/she is most comfortable with. Instead, I have a page called "What is a Serving" (second thumbnail) that describes about how much is in one serving of different types of food.

I don't really have a question, but I would like to make a suggestion for the reading selections. I used "Snow Day" and I am using some of your February readings with the whole class and with an intervention group. I work with a low level intervention group that could use a differentiated reading. Any chance you could include lower leveled readings to accommodate students reading at a lower level, but still need to learn the strategies? Your selections include a somewhat high number of higher level vocabulary that could maybe be simplified.

I've actually had a few requests to make easier passages and probably an equal amount to make some more difficult. I'm going to continue making the monthly themed sets geared towards the 3rd grade level (with some 2nd grade and 4th grade passages), but when I'm finished, I am going to make grade-level specific sets of passages with generic graphic organizers so the teacher can pick and choose which strategies he/she would like to work on. I hope to have the grade level passages finished sometime this summer.

I tried the freebie and I think it was great. My second graders did a wonderful job with text marking and I love the challenge of the material. That being said, I would also love to see more text with lower lexile levels, especially if they weren't themed (holiday, season, etc.) so my students could use them more independently. We did this whole group and they hung in there, but by the second page they were starting to struggle. At this point in the year, we can do this whole group, but I know next fall would be an complete fail at these higher levels. More items in the 500's and I would be completely hooked on your product. Keep me posted if you make updates. Thanks!

Hello! I teach 4th grade and I am looking into your Close Readings and they are great! They only thing is that I need something that goes up through 5th grade since I teach 4th grade. Do you have anything that would work for 3rd, 4th, and 5th (below, on, and above level) for differentiation?

I'm sorry, but I don't at this time. Some of the passages are at the low end of the 5th grade reading level (830-1010) but most are 3rd and 4th.

I have received some requests today to make some at a higher level, but I won't be able to get to that until I finish the ones I'm currently working on. It would be something that I can do for the next school year, though.

I just downloaded your Freebie Weekly Close Reading. I will use it with some 4th graders I have for interventions. I also work with 5th graders. Are you planning to create passages with higher Lexile in the 960-1055 range? If so I would be interested.
Thank you,
M. Logue

At this time, I don't anticipate creating any with higher Lexile levels, but once I'm finished making the ones for grades 2-4, it is definitely something I would consider!

I'm sorry, but answer keys are not included in my close reading activities since many of the answers could vary from student to student.

I downloaded DEC, JAN, AND FEB Weekly Close Reading passages but the Feb is titled Jan Close Readings and I can't open it. Can you fix this so all 3 are titled correctly and I can open Feb? I'd like to use it tomorrow. Thanks!

There are only a few units on here that go with the curriculum I teach. Do you sell them separately? I would LOVE to purchase them, but definitely don't need them all.

Thanks,
Jennifer

I'm sorry, but I don't break these up into smaller units. I am going to put them on sale for 20% off at some point in February.

In the passage "At the Beach" moat has been spelled incorrectly. I had a parent send this back to me and point it out. I had missed that one myself! Could that be fixed? Thanks! Cute passages but we have encountered a few spelling errors along the way.

Yes. I'm so sorry for this mistake! I'll read over everything again this weekend and update it by Monday.

I was wondering if it was possible for me to have an extension on your sale. My school will purchase things I am interested in using in my classroom, but I will have to get the approval from them this week. I should have an answer from them by Friday (if we have school due to weather). Thank you for your time and consideration!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching elementary school for the past five years. At the beginning of my career, I taught in the suburbs of Chicago starting out in 3rd grade for two years and moving up to 5th for my last year. After moving to Ohio, I quickly obtained a position teaching 3rd grade again! I love third graders and the opportunity to do a job that I love!

MY TEACHING STYLE

As I continue to grow professionally, I have become inspired by the challenge of stimulating students who are not engaged in their learning, cannot connect the curriculum with the real world, or see using information they acquire in the classroom in their future. I am driven by a desire to reach and engage these students. The idea of the teacher becoming a partner in the learning process, thus guiding students to discover the meaning within the subject areas, is one I embrace. By implementing project based learning experiences throughout the curriculum, students work cooperatively to solve real-world problems that correlate with the curriculum. In doing this, I have become a facilitator in the learning process while my students became active researchers and participants in their own learning.
