I see several have asked to have an answer key for the vocabulary pages in your Holes unit. Did you add the key to the unit? I would like to purchase your unit, but will need an answer key so students can self correct!

Hello!
You should be able to simply go to the "my purchases" page, and download from there. If you are still having trouble, contact the TPT crew - they should be able to figure everything out for you :) Hope you enjoy it!

I am sorry you are disappointed. If you examine the product description, you will notice that it does not say an answer key is included. If you look near the bottom, it says n/a in the answer key section as well.

Hi,

I just bought the Unwind Novel pack, and the character cube template is blank. Do you happen to have a page with the cube on it? I LOVE this unit!

Thank you!

That is strange! Is the page missing all together, or just the template

I am happy to email you a copy of the template. If you respond to this message with your email, I can send you a copy on Monday. Glad you like the unit! It is such a great book!

Buyer re: The City of Ember - Complete Unit with Questions and Activities
I just have a quick question about the plot diagram. Do you have them do it on regular sized paper for each chapter? Paragraph and picture on the same page or separate?
January 22, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Creative Classroom Core
Creative Classroom Core  (TpT Seller)
Hello!
I give them one large sheet of blank paper. They draw the plot diagram and do the paragraphs on the bottom. If there is not enough room, you can have them number the plot points, and have them write the paragraphs on the back (or on lined paper, and stapled on)
Hope this helps!

Lori K. re: Legends of King Arthur and his Knights: Handouts and Activities
There are so many versions of King Arthur and the Knights..... Are your activities based on specific stories and novels?
April 28, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Creative Classroom Core
Creative Classroom Core  (TpT Seller)
Hello!
I have many different versions of the stories, and tend to use different ones from year to year, depending on my class. The questions and activities in this package are designed to be used with almost any version of the stories. For example, some of the activities ask students to examine the code of chivalry, and compare the code to the actions of a character in the story. While a valuable activity, it is generic enough to be used with any of the King Arthur tales. The questions that relate to specific stories are also generic enough to be used with any version. This package is currently being used by several teachers in our school, who all use it with different versions. Hope this helps!

A set of comprehension questions is included with this package. The answer key is also included. Some of the questions require inferencing, and some questions revolve around plot elements.

Buyer re: Paper Bag Book Report: Use with any novel or short story
Could this package be useful to teach French as a second language? I am teaching a short novel to highschool students who are not supposed to speak any English in class but perhaps I could use your ideas and modify them. Perhaps I could use some of your templates. What do you think?

I think it would be great! The kids could simply follow the English instructions, and fill the information in in French :)
I think you will be really happy with your results - I did the project with a group of grade 7 Humanities students this year, and it was really successful. The students loved doing it, and the results were beautiful.

Hello,
I have bought your products in the past with no trouble, but now that I am using my daughter's iMac, I am getting a message saying that Safari can't open the file because there is no application available to open it. Even just to download a preview! Can you tell me what I need to open these?
thanks!

Hi Joan!
I create all of my products on Microsoft Word. I don't have any experience using an iMac, but if you have microsoft word you should be able to open them up. I wish I could be more helpful, but I've never experienced this problem before. If your iMac can't open the file, can you maybe access it from a school computer?
Hope this helps!

Hello!

You are in luck!

This package does go along with Beowulf: A New Telling by Robery Nye. As I am planning on teaching this unit again in September, I just posted an updated package for the unit. I created the package because I was having a very hard time finding resources that went along with this version on the tale.

If you choose to purchase the package, send me another message and I can email you some additional activities for the unit for free :)

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over 10 years experience teaching Middle School English, History, and Art!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach a specialty program where students learn Humanities content through art. Because of this, my lessons are creative, innovative, and hands on. Through my lessons, students are able to express their learning in a variety of different ways - this really helps the teacher to reach a broad range of student abilities with one lesson. My lessons are fun, creative, and engaging!
