Above the exercises, the examples for its/it's are incorrect. It should read, "It's important to eat vegetables," and, "The dog chased its tail." Also, on #5, it should be it's with the apostrophe in the key. It is overall a great resource!

David, I have volumes 1 and 2. I teach GED, and most students struggle to make sense of literal text, not to mention poetry. They find the comics not intimidating. I wonder if you have answer sheets for the questions (even if not in publishable form). Not being an English teacher, I sure would love the help!

Coach's Corner
Coach's Corner  (TpT Seller) re: Clip Art - Reading
Hi David. I love your clip art, and hope you are planning more. I just thought that you might want to consider using "custom categories" to make it easier for buyers to search your store, and also to use live hyperlinks to your website and Facebook page. The easier you make things for potential buyers, the more likely you will be to make sales!
March 11, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
David Rickert  (TpT Seller)
Those are really good suggestions. I had not added hyperlinks because I wasn't sure how. A quick search gave me the information I needed. I now know how to use custom categories, but I'm not quite sure how best to use them. Should I create a "misplaced modifiers" category, for instance, for that one product? Should I create "secondary clip art?" I'm trying to predict what people will search for.

And yes, I am planning more clip art. I have a writing one that is about ready to go.

Hi David,
I really like your Poetry comics and am about to embark on your Grammar Comics. I know it's designed as a supplement, but I don't have a grammar textbook and was wondering if you felt your Grammar Comics covered the main elements of grammar...and if so, which materials. Thanks, Amy
February 17, 2014 Report inappropriate comment

David Rickert  (TpT Seller)
It definitely is a supplement. You would need to add some grammar instruction and exercises to go along with it. When I designed them, most teachers had some sort of grammar instruction in place, usually a textbook. It seems most teachers have to go online to find grammar materials now.

I am hosting a 100 Followers Giveaway and hope that you will consider donating one of your clipart products to the winner of the drawing. It would be a great way to show more teachers your clipart, as well as fill a void for clipart in our drawing. Here's the forum link with more information:

The product overview stated that this should include part I and part II. How many pages should that be? It seems strange to me that the sentence problems comics were $2 less but had more pages. Is it because there is less artwork?

Thanks for sharing your creativity with the rest of us!

The Grammar Comics: Parts of Speech are just comics; no additional materials. The Sentence Problems ones include fewer comics, but more additional materials such as worksheets. The Parts of Speech ones take care of eight parts of speech, but the Sentence Problems ones only have five problems addressed. To answer your question, Parts of Speech includes 15 pages of stuff.
Thanks!

Hi David,
These comics are adorable and will work great in my 6th grade grammar lessons. However, I was just looking over the pages that I downloaded and noticed that page 8, the first page on adjectives, is blurry. All of the rest of the pages look totally crisp, which makes me think that it's not a simple fix, like I need to update adobe or something. I printed it out and compared it with the other pages, and it still looks blurry when compared with the other pages.

I would think so, although each part of speech is dealt with in a two page comic. So there's nothing terribly in depth there. There are really designed to supplement a lesson, not stand on their own.

A comic for each of the parts of speech. The sample of the verbs one gives you a good indication of what the rest are like. They are designed so that each one fits on to one sheet for distribution to your students - all, that is, except for the verbs one which is on three pages. Too much to write about!

I did not include any activities because I designed it to be a supplement to grammar instruction, not as a replacement. There are plenty of grammar resources out there, I figured.

My materials are aimed at middle school and high school audiences--therefore I am searching for someone who is interested in creating some cartoon images of adolescents/teens writing, reading, using the computer, cooperative learning scene (sitting around a table), interviewing scene (holding a mic???), planting a school garden---these would be images only --that I would use on my products to make them SUPER attractive and engaging for the buyer and user. Of course I am willing to pay for your services and to give you credit each time I use your work on each of my products. What do you think?

I think this is a great idea and one I've pondered for some time. Right now I'm a little too busy to give my all to it, and I have to figure out the logistics of offering a set that people can use digitally as a file - I don't know it I can do that on TpT. I know that many of the images in my comics would work well for this purpose already - I know because I've done it - and it wouldn't be a problem to do a few more once I'm done with the two projects I'm working on currently. What I'd like to do when the time comes is have you feed me ideas and I'll give them to you for free as I build up a library of clip art that I can sell as a set. Sound good?

Hi David:

I have incorporated your commas comic into a PPT for my class. I would like to post to my website as well. Of course, you are credited for the comic. I would be happy to send you a copy of the PPT and website so that you can check it out.

Thanks!

Heather

No problems - if you could, send a link back to my site - http://www.comicteacher.com.

Those are the first ones I did. Sorry the artwork isn't better.

I am actually working on some reading skills materials with another teacher, although those are more geared toward learning to read rather than increasing fluency and all of that. Those won't be out for a year or so, though. In the meantime I'm working on Grammar Comics Vol. 3 as well, which deals with common sentence errors.

Great idea about the Five for Fighting song! The kids would totally get that example. I'll use it. I'm excited about the day I get the email that says, "David Rickert has posted 'Poetry Comics Vol.3.' :)

Yes - it works well because the word Superman isn't actually in the song.

I teach 9th grade English, and my students are always struggling with euphemisms and allusions. We study them all year, but especially with To Kill a Mockingbird. I was just wondering if you've ever created anything in these areas? I'd be happy to pay for them. I just love your work, so I thought I should at least ask.

Thanks! I have not done anything for those, but those would be good for volume three (when I get around to it.) Any suggestions for poems?

One thing I have done for allusions is to google popular songs that are about Superman and get the lyrics. Most of those songs don't make any sense unless you know the character. There's that Five For Fighting song and one by the Spin Doctors. Probably a few others. If you google "Clark Kent poems" by Lucille Clifton you'll find some stuff there.

Much like Gary below, I'd also very much like, with your permission, to use your free download on Robert Frost and 'The Road Not Taken' on my blog in a post on your work. My blog is in Danish and focusses on variation in teaching ESL and Danish. www.111variation.blogspot.com.
Thanks. Eva
