Hello!

I just bought your Journeys assessment pack and I noticed that Hi! Fly Guy and A Boat Disappears had some of the same questions. The first part of the test (questions 1-4 where you bubble the name of the picture) have the same pictures/answers. Also, question 6 is the same (my teacher helped me come up with an ____) I wasn't sure if it was an error or not. Just wanted to let you know. I am excited to use this.

Depending on the version of Journeys you are using (2011 or 2014) you will either have the story "A Boat Disappears" or "Hi! Fly Guy."
The skills being taught in both stories are the same so the assessments are similar. Even one of the vocab words are the same so I used the some of the same questions on the assessments. I don't think you actually have both stories. You either have one or the other.

Yes, there is one for each lesson. I have each unit bundled in my store - Units 1-6. If more than one classroom is using them, then you need to purchase an additional license for each room. You can browse in my store to see what the prices are. The additional licenses are cheaper than the original product. Thanks for your interest!

Hi Dawn,
I have purchased all of your Journeys Units and I love them. I know that next year I will be teaching some children with lower academic abilities. Do you have any plans in differentiating any of your previous lessons to meet the needs of lower ability students? I already have the students work in groups but that doesn't always work. Let me know. Again, I love your products!

Hi Dawn,
I've bought many of your wonderful products but wanted to bring something to your attention. This is our first year for Journeys in Florida. Three of our stories are different. Story#21 is The Garden , not The Tree. Also, stories # 24 and #29 are different. I've purchased all your assessment packs and noticed the discrepancy as I tried to give test #21 on Friday. Thought you'd like to know ! Judy Sucher. Orlando, Florida

Hi Ms. Hilburn
I just purchased your unit 5 journeys bundle (i have purchased several of your units in the past and love them!!) but the stories that are included are not matching my unit 5 stories. My unit 5 stories are as follows: 1- Frog and Toad together, 2- Amazing animals, 3- Whistle for Willie, 4- A tree is a plant and 5-The new Friend. Can you clarify if I am working off another version of Journeys- our county just purchased it this year- Thanks so much!!

I have the 2011 version and you have the 2014 version. The skills and spelling words are the same for all the stories in both versions. So that should be fine. If you will email me at firstgradeshenanigans@gmail.com I will can email you the sight words and sight word graphs for your two stories that are different.

Dawn,

I saw where you have the 2011 version of Journeys. We have the 2014 version of Journeys. I saw where you would email the vocabulary words for 2 of the stories in Unit 5 to people who purchase the bundle. I would like to purchase the bundle if I could get the vocabulary words to go with the stories; Lesson 21 Frog and Toad, The Garden and Lesson 24 A Tree is a Plant. I can email you the vocabulary words if you are able to do that. If not then I can purchase the activity packets that go with the other 3 stories. Thank you so much for these wonderful activities. I use them daily. They are fantastic!!!!

I think you can go ahead and purchase the bundles if you want. The spelling words and skills are the same. My Lesson 21 (The Tree) matches your story (The Garden) and my Lesson 24 (A Butterfly Grows) matches (A Tree is a Plant). I will be happy to send you the vocab and sight word graphs for your stories. Email me at firstgradeshenanigans@gmail.com and I will send them to you. I plan on putting those in the bundles and stories at some point.

There are 6 bundles -Unit 1 thru Unit 6. I have not made one giant bundle. Spelling activities are basically the same and some of the sight word/phonics activities are the same but with the new words or sound. The skills for each story are different so I do vary the activities for that. There are lots of different crafts scattered throughout to go with the stories and the last unit covers opinion writing strongly. There are whole group and center activities. Some of those could be done with partners as well. If you have time you might go to some of the units that have previews and look. The story "How Leopard Got His Spots" has two whole group fictional writing/craft activities. The story "Animal Groups" has a good whole group science activity that parallels with story.

Sometimes a PDF will look fine on your screen, but may not print out correctly (especially if the file is graphic-heavy).
Try this:

2. Click "Print" within the Adobe Reader application.
3. You can select "adjust to fit" if necessary.
4. Click "advanced."
5. Check the "print as image" box.

Not yet, I just got started making the packet for "The Dot." I will have it up in a couple of weeks. Thanks for your interest!

I am hoping to get book 5 up by the end of this weekend. I haven't started working on book 6 but plan on it as soon as I get 5 up.

Some of my pages just show up as dark marks. I tried on my Mac and PC. I can give you the specific pages if you would llke. This also happened with Animal Groups, but I thought it was just my Mac, but now there are multiple pages that I can not use. Do you know what is causing this?
Thanks!

I found this on the "help" section on the TpT website and I am going to copy and paste. Hope it helps. If not, let me know.

The PDF I downloaded is showing black smudges, what do I do?
You just need to update your Adobe Reader:
http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/

If you are on a Mac, do not open with Preview. It will not work. Download the most updated version of Adobe Reader and open the PDF with it (and not Preview). To 'open with' adobe reader on a mac, highlight the product pdf icon with one click, go to 'file' at the top of the screen, choose 'open with' then select 'adobe' and you'll be all set.

I love your literacy activities. They are saving me hours and hours and my kiddies are enjoying them. But, I was wondering if you considered adding an activity for the second word study skill for the week (this week it was s, es, ed, and ing endings). I was getting the next week's activities ready and wishing it had something for possessives. Thanks for the consideration!

Hi Dawn, I've noticed that you have vcreated a lot of material for the "Journey's" reading program published by Houghton Mifflin, which is developed to meet the CCSS. I'm the language arts coordinator of our k-2 building and I'm wondering how you like the program.
We are currently piloting the program, and the feedback from my teachers seems to be how to fit it all into a week. Hope to hear from you soon.

As with all programs, there are things I like and things that I don't like about it. We are on our second year and it is much easier to use now that I have taught it a year. I really do like the selection of stories. There is no possible way you could teach everything that is with every story in one week which is what we spend on each story. I have to choose the skills that I want my class to work on for the week.
