I do have plans to make something for POW TREE, just not sure how to tie it in with superheroes! I have a blog post on SRSD with a link to a Padlet that has MANY resources for SRSD. I'm almost positive there is something on there already for TREE. WWW.commontothecore.com
Thanks!

I can't make you any promises that they'll be done by June, but I'll do them as soon as I can. My end of the year calendar is CRAZY full! I'm so glad you like them and will post the update on my social media sites, so be watching! Also check My Purchases from time to time and you'll see a notice there when something has been revised and you can re-download at that time!

Hi Dana,
Last evening, I downloaded you activity on The Mitten. Now, I cannot get access to it...
S ce I downloaded on my ipad, I saved the URL.. Can you see that I downloaded it, and possibly send to me? Pretty please? My daughter is a kindergarten teacher and she was at "Reading night" last night, so I got it for her. It opened and I looked over it, then sent her the link.
Thank you if you can help!

How many subjects do you have in the packet? I really need the following: Math, Science, Social Studies, Working with words, Reading, and Writing. I am going to have my students put these in their very own anchor chart binders we are creating throughout the year!!

I made them for my notebooks. The data notebook contains ALL my test data. It's the biggest notebook you've ever seen. Benchmark scores, copies of progress reports, DIBELS scores, etc. The behavior notebook has my weekly behavior logs and individual student behavior notes. Does that help?

Hello! I was wondering if this was aligned with CCSS and are there any slides with " I can " statements as well any form of assessment? Thanks so much for all your help!!
November 23, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Dana Lester
Dana Lester  (TpT Seller)
It meets the following standards:
1st Grade: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.1.2a Capitalize dates and names of people
2nd Grade: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.2.2a Capitalize holidays, product names, and geographic names.
3rd Grade; CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.3.2 Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.3.2a Capitalize appropriate words in titles.
4th Grade: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.4.2 Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.4.2a Use correct capitalization.
There are no slides that have I Can Statements, but that is a good idea. I will add some. There are no written assessments but there are 10 sentences included that need editing. Students could write these sentences or can serve as a verbal assessment (which is how I used it). If you have already purchased this PP, check under My Purchases and when I make changes to it, you will see the words Re-Download flashing. I hope this helped!

I purchased this powerpoint this evening and it will not open in my MS PowerPoint 2011...do you have any suggestions for me? Tried re-downloading only to keep getting the same message that the file may be corrupt or a file type unable to be opened by PP. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Thank you so much,
