Christina's Cafe of Creations  (TpT Seller) re: Area and Perimeter Puzzlers - task cards + printables (set B)
I am so sorry to bother you again, but I still think there may be a mistake on one of the puzzle cards and your answer key. I am copying these on card stock and laminating for durability, so I want to make sure they are right before I make these revisions (I had already had the cards on card stock, laminated, and cut when I found the initial errors, and I made 12 sets so... On Card 26, shouldn't the hexagon's perimeter be 84? The left and right jive because the left side is 20 inches, and the right side is 12 inches and 8 inches, but the top and bottom aren't making sense. Top is 22in, bottom is 4 in + ?. I think the answer is S=18 inches, and the perimeter on the card should be 84 inches... Thank you!

You are absolutely not a bother. I tired to fix the earlier errors, and ended up making another. I am very sorry for the time you wasted preparing the cards only to not be able to use them. I would like to thank you for your help fixing this product and to make up for your lost time. Please email me at dmcdonald@hcpss.org, and I would be happy to send you any product in my store free of charge as a thank you and an apology for the wasted time cutting and laminating all those sets. [I have fixed the errors on card 26, adjusted the answer key, and uploaded the product.]

I have not yet finished working on Set A. I know it sounds strange that I would have a Set B, but not a Set A, but I realized when I was creating these cards that they were challenging, and so I intended to go back and create a more beginner set at a later point.

I recently purchased this resource, and I think the questions are great! I wanted to make sure they weren't too easy or difficult for my students before doing the activity, so I solved them all first. I am a little confused with a few of the answers though. My answers are not jiving with your answer key on questions 6, 22, and 26. For question 6, I got 9 1/3 cm (you got 8), for question 22, I got 4 inches (you got 6 inches), and for question 26, I got 18 inches but that number doesn't jive with 88. Should it be 84? What grade level did you use these with? Thank you!

Thanks for inquiring. I am very grateful for you contacting me through the Q & A about those mistakes (and indeed they were mistakes). I checked the key and cards and fixed those errors, modifying the number on Card 6 and the answers for cards 22 and 26 and uploading the revised product. Thank you again for contacting me, and I apologize for the mistakes.

In regards to using them, I used them with my above grade level fourth graders. I hope you find them to be helpful for your students.

Dennis McDonald  (TpT Seller)
Thanks so much for the compliment. I have two sets of task cards, called "Find the Fraction". There is Set A, a beginner set that uses a variety of models and uses only unit fractions (e.g., 1/3 of 21). Set B also uses only unit fractions, but is a bit more advanced, requiring students to reasons about fractional expressions and ties in vocabulary such as "prime" and "composite". I hope either of those sets meet your needs.

5th_is_Fab  (TpT Seller) re: Growing & Shrinking – scaling fractions ppt, task cards, and printables
I was going to give you a lower score on my review, but I thought I would e-mail you to let you know about a lot of simple mistakes within the card set that I wish I would have found before I wasted lamination and cutting time. My students actually pointed it out on several occasions. On many of the cards, the types of measurements do not match up. For instance one says the length will get smaller or the weight will get larger. If it is talking about weight... the whole card should have to do with weight. Also on some cards, the potion bottle fraction does not match the fraction in the problem... Just being picky I know, but I am proud of my kiddos for being so observant :) Thanks Bunches and let me know when this is fixed so I can reprint and laminate for next year.

No, this set presents the concept of parallel, perpendicular, and intersecting just in the context of segments, rays, and lines. My other set of ppts & game called "Go Figure" does define and explain the term "polygon", as well as practice with identifying names and attributes of various polygons. I also have a set of task cards and reference sheets, called "Getting in Shape" that does not use the term "polygon" but is designed to help students identify side and angle relationships in various polygons.

If none of the products I have meet your needs, I hope you are able to find something somewhere else on TpT.

PurplePanda
PurplePanda  (TpT Seller) re: Whole-y Fractions – fraction & whole number equivalence task cards + printables
Hi! I love pandas (and my students know it) so I'm very excited about your most recent products. However, I'm confused so I'm hoping you can provide some clarification. I know that all three recent panda products focus on the same topic - fraction and whole number equivalence. But what is the difference between all three products? Particularly between 'Whole-y fractions' and "Bamboo-zled" since they are both titled as "task cards and printables set". Do any pages repeat in any of the products? Is one set easier than the other? Thanks!
January 7, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Dennis McDonald  (TpT Seller)
Thanks for the question. There are no repeat pages in any of the products. I designed the Whole-y Pandas set as a beginner set, using visual models on every card and on the assessment tasks, and every card ask students to simply name the fraction and whole number to match the model. The Bamboo-zled cards are for kids who already are experienced with fraction models. This set include a reference sheet with a visual model, but all the cards use only numbers and no pictures. The questions on these cards are more varied as well.

It makes me realize that I need to clarify in the descriptions which of the sets are the easier one! Thanks again for inquiring about the card sets.

If you are interested in them, I do intend to bundle both sets of task cards, as well as my game Panda Pathways, all together into one package for a discount. I will be working on that this weekend and intend to have the bundle posted on Saturday or Sunday.

Hi, you answered my question about bundling...thank you!

Did a mess up somewhere, and download something I shouldn't have? Help again. Thanks

I've never had that happen when I've used PDF Merge. When I went back to the site, I saw that there is a rectangle with a red box and an arrow reading "Download the Full PDF Application". This downloads the Soda PDF installer. This is program is separate from the PDF Merge site, and I think it is on there as an ad.

When I have used the site, I simply used the "Choose File" buttons to choose each PDF on my computers, and then hit the "Merge!" button to merge them all together. You should be able to do this with no problems, and without having to do anything further.

Did you perhaps download the Soda PDF installer? If so, I think you may be able to uninstall that, and it should fix your problems.

I'm sorry for the problems you've had with the site, especially since I steered you towards it in the first place.

When I make my Word or PPT documents into PDFs (I use a Mac), I go to "Print..." and Select the "PDF" button that is on the bottom left corner of the pop-up window. Once I choose that, there is a button that reads "Security Options..." I click on that and the options come up to make the file password protected for copying and/or printing.

If you have trouble, I can send you an email with screenshots to show you what it looks like. I know that I often have trouble following narrative directions for things like this :) You can email me at dmcdonald@hcpss.org

Hello,

I have not yet finsihed work on the next sets. I have a second and a third set, each of which have 8 new characters featured. The characters listed in the "like" and "unlike" are not in the other sets. They are listed as a reference so the kids can see lots of synonyms and antonyms for each trait and so each character provides its own unique character trait, with its own set of synonyms and antonyms. I am hoping to have Set B up before the start of the school year.

I appreciate the compliment on the sets. Thanks so much for purchasing them!

Hi Dennis,

I found you on the forum where you described how you created a preview for one of your animated power points.

Hi! I do not lock my ppt at all. I don't have a lot of ppts, so it's not that big a deal. Also (and more importantly), the clip art that I use is from a public domain site so I don't have any Terms of Use issues that someone might have if they used purchased clip art. That would be, I imagine, the main sticking point for have an "open" ppt. I know one possible option for preventing editing is to save the ppt as a a power point show (pps). What's different about a pps is that when it is opened, it opens in slide show format and I don't believe can be opened in "normal" view, which would allow for editing. I use a Mac, but if you use a PC, there is (from what I understand) a function built into ppt that allows you to lock it from being edited. When you want to save, go to "save as", and there should be a Tools option, which leads you to "General Options" option, which allow you to select a password for file sharing that would only allow someone to modify the ppt if they knew the password you selected.

I hope that info was of use!

However, your three sets are A, B, C. Your half-sets are 1 and 2. I thought you might want to clarify that on your preview.

I know that the ones I have are red and yellow and I got them from a math catalog, like EAI. EAI sells them - called "Two-Color Counters: Red/Yellow - Set of 200", with the item # 530097. They cost $5 for a bag of 200, so they're a pretty good deal. Another option would be to glue two different colors of construction paper back to back and either use a die-cut machine with a die-cut of small circles or even just cut out the circles. I hope one of those suggestions is helpful!

Thanks for the question! When I first designed these, I made each sheet to be like a trading card that could be folded in half with the character's pic and name on the front and the description of them on the back. I made up the "mini posters" so the character's image and name would fill up an entire 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper, which I figured would be useful for displaying in a classroom on a bulletin board; however, I didn't make up a corresponding description sheet that would be the same size because I didn't think people would use them as such. I think it's a great idea, though. I am currently working on the second set of personality people, and I will both use this as an idea for my second set and go back and revise the first set to include "mini-posters" of the characters' descriptions. Once I do, I will repost the new product with a note indicating the addition of letter-sized descriptions to complement the letter-sized mini-posters of each character. You can expect an update soon!

You have a big typo at the bottom of the first task card. It should say "third person" and not "first person."

Thank you so much! I have corrected the error on the final paragraph of the journal insert so it now reads correctly. I'm really sorry about that. I don't know the protocol for when a product is reposted with an error fixed. Are people who purchased the item able to redownload it without having to pay for it? Can I email the corrected file to you so you have it without the error?

This game looks very interesting, but I do not see any directions. Where can I go for directions for Factor Flip? Thanks!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am now in my 20th year of teaching - hard to believe sometimes! After I graduated from college, I began teaching second grade at a school in Baltimore, Maryland. During my six years at that school, I eventually "graduated" to third grade. I changed schools, moving to a Title 1 school in a nearby school system, where I also taught third grade. I later moved to my current school, where I have been happily teaching fourth grade for ten years.
