Buyer re: American History Alive
Just wondering if you could send me some more information on your product. I love using simulations in the classroom. Are your simulations complete with all necessary materials to be reproduced and do you have a list of the simulations that you offer in your products? Also, do you feel your simulations could be adapted for an 8th grade level? Thank you.

I have been teaching with simulations for about 10 years now. These have been written and collected to be stored in one place. If you want to email me at teachingwithstyle09@gmail.com, I can send you some free samples.

Michelle S. re: Real World MATH BUNDLE (15)
Hello! I love this idea of "Real World Math" and think that my gifted 2nd graders would do well with some of it. However, in looking at the preview a lot of it has percentages, (figuring tax), multiplying, and other concepts way beyond their ability level. Do you have a set that is geared more towards elementary, or is it editable to where I could take out the sections about tax and lower the level on other task cards? Thanks so much in advance for any info. It looks fabulous!

Thanks for contacting me. These "real world" bundles are geared for students to practice their math fluency. They include problem-solving also. I have had several teachers use these for gifted 2nd graders also. Instead of computing tax, they used a tax table from their state. It allowed them to find the tax rate AND practice using charts. I think more than 1/2 of the bundle could be used without any editing at all. I hope this helps.

From the preview this seems like mostly money. Is there more than money involved?

It is all about making real world choices when shopping. Includes restaurants, groceries, bakeries, home improvement, etc. Students will have practice with adding, subtracting, and multiplying whole numbers, decimals, fractions, and working with percentages. They will also work with area and perimeter when they to design their own rooms. The scenarios change and no answers will ever be the same. I used money because it is a real world concept. Hope this helps.

Hiya, I noticed you have Olympic themed resources in your shop and I just thought I'd let you know I received this email today from the legal department about a request for permission for using the Olympic name and logo:

"Please note that the Olympic properties belong to the IOC and the rights to the commercial reproduction of these are reserved for the members of the Olympic movement and its official partners.

The IOC considers your request to be commercial, and therefore cannot consent to your reproduce the wordmark "Olympics" and Olympic symbol in the title of your resource pack."

I'm afraid we can't sell products with the Olympic name or logo - I just wanted to share this with you too to avoid any messy legal action!

Hi Dacia-

I am a 6th grade math teacher trying to gear my instruction towards the CCSSM. I'm wondering how much common core 6th grade content is in the bundle as it is listed for 1st-7th grade. If you could please let me know I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

Sincerely,

tpaquette

I would say that more than 3/4 of the bundle includes adding, subtracting, and multiplying decimals. Lots to do with tax and tip also. Real world connections make it fun. The tasks can be repeated multiple times with different results. I have presented at state and national math conferences and upper grade teachers love them. I hope that helps.

Hi Dacia!
If I purchase this from my home, do I have the ability to email it to myself so that I can access the files you provide and then open it on my school computer? I have a color printer at school and would print it there so that everything comes out in color. If I need to purchase and download it from my computer at school, that is fine too! I just was curious if I could move the files from one computer to another so I could have them both on my home computer and my school computer. I don't want to buy it at home, and then have it be stuck on my home computer so I can't print it with my color printer at school...
I hope that I'm making sense!
Thank you!

Thank you so much for your quick response! My email is kfarmer@vcs.k12.nc.us
I was aware that it did not include the new standards, but I really liked the information for ecosystems, weather, and force and motion. I am trying to put something together including the new stuff but am not exactly where I need to be with that yet. I missed seeing you at the science conference this year! Your presentations have been so informative and helpful! Thanks again!

Buyer re: Science for Everyone!
Hi Dacia,

I attended your presentation at the NCSTA conference in the fall of 2011 and got a wonderful resource from you called a Science Brain Drain. I used it last year and my kids loved it. I made books for each of them and took them back up to use this year. To my dismay, my master copy has disappeared along with my backups and I have more kids so I need to make more. Is it available anywhere or is there anyway you could send me a copy? Thanks so much for your help in anyway!
