It is asking you to trust the program - you will need to click "enable" and it should work. Of not - shoot me an email at econnell@friendlycity.net and we'll work through it. I think it will work once you click enable though.

Good Afternoon Taylor!
I just downloaded it on the school computer. The Microsoft WORD and the Adobe are the exact same document- WORD can be edited. Reboot your computer and try it again, if still not working, shoot me an email at econnell@friendlycity.net. I will be glad to try to send different / earlier versions of WORD and see if that is the issue. If you are trying the PowerPoint, you need to click "READ ONLY". I did not make that so that it could be edited.

Buyer re: Subtraction with Regrouping Grade 3 Interactive PowerPoint Game 20 Questions
Before leaving a rating, I was really hoping I could get a few tips.... I don't know if it is USER error ;) or what... I am having some trouble with the PowerPoint. I decided to play the game with my kids before I played it with my students this week. When I tried to enter in scores it would not let me do anything. Also, it would not let me click on the diamond-the number never changed-I don't know if it was supposed to or not? I pretended to get an answer incorrect several times to try and see if it would do anything. It then changed the number in the diamond and ultimately directed me to the randomizer button which never did anything. Really hoping you could help me out. I would love to be able to use this product by Wednesday! Thanks! acmckee2219@gmail.com

Good Morning!
I think I know probably what happened with you. Don't worry, it is easy to fix! :) When you first click on the program- you get a warning- It will stay click "run macros not recommended"- it is because of it being a PPS File- which can be a malicious program if from an untrustworthy source. I can assure you- no malware is on it. You should click "RUN" and it will be fine.

However, if your school network is refusing to let it run - you can change the file extension at the end from pps to ppt and it will run as a ppt- BUT please be warned, it will then let you make changes to it. If you make a mistake and delete a page by accident it will not work. I saved it as pps so that it could not be changed.

However, it just sounds like the Macros aren't running. When it asks you if you _really want to run them_ you click yes and everything will start working. I hope this information helps and have a SUPER fantastic school year!

Buyer re: Reading Main Ideas Interactive PowerPoint Game 40 Questions
Hi I just bought this game but it is not doing anything. Could you give me more detailed instructions on how to operate it. Also when it comes on a powerpoint pages comes on and remains floating in front of the screen. How do you add points? What is supposed to happen when you click on the yellow circle? or do you click on the black letters? In any case, nothing happens. I can open the questions, and choose an answer, then press on the number to see how many points, but then I do not know what to do with them. I tried adding to one of the color groups but nothing changes. Help. Maria-Elena. I really like this game. I hope you can make it work.

I think we can sort everything out. When you open up the page- do you get an Enable Maco question? You will need to click "yes" to enable macros. Also, the game format will not work on a mac- only windows based pc.

To get the points, make sure you click on the number box- that will set off the random points to see how many you got. The teacher adds the points to the team screen at the start. From you questions, I believe the macros were not enabled. Once you enable them, I think everything will be fine.

Good Morning!
I just went and checked. The question cards are on pages 8-14 of the packet. This is a vocabulary question list and not a content question packet. The words and their definitions are the common words found in the book that students need to learn. After reading the book- let the students look over the book and review the terms. They play the game to reinforce the learned concepts. They will give the word and be asked to give the definition or be given the definition and be asked for the word. You can decide which works best for you students. Enjoy and have a great school year!

Good Morning! I have been away so sorry to take a while to get back with you! My wife had the same trouble. First, make sure you have a PC and not a Mac. The macros that make the program do the bells and whistles don't work on a mac computer. If you have a PC, when you first click on it, it should prompt a security warning telling- you will need to "ENABLE" the macros to work. Don't enable from unreliable sources. Consider me a good source. :) Hope this helps. If not, contact me at econnell@friendlycity.net and I will work you through any issues.

For the book, what does this game help to teach?
February 23, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Ed Connell
Ed Connell  (TpT Seller)
Good Day! I understand that if a principal walks into your room for an observation and sees children having fun and playing board games- they might be concerned that learning is NOT taking place. BUT IT IS! If you need to put something in your lesson plan to justify the children doing this game- copy and paste the following and let me know if I can help in any other way!

Why is this game important?

Successful reading requires being able to identify written words and know what those words mean. In recent years, an improved understanding of the skills that underlie reading words and techniques that successfully teach those skills have led to better word reading and better comprehension of written text in first grade.

Unfortunately, learning to read written texts is not the same as learning to understand written texts. It is a problem that many children who successfully learn to read in grade one or two are nonetheless unable to understand books they need to read by grade three or four. The main reason for this is a lack of adequate vocabulary (Becker, 1977; Chall, Jacobs, & Baldwin, 1990; Chall & Conard, 1991; Lescaux & Kieffer, 2010; Scarborough, 2001; Silverman & Crandall, 2010; Spira, Bracken, & Fischel, 2005; Storch & Whitehouse, 2002). The National Reading Panel (2000) has identified vocabulary as one of five key aspects of literacy.

While North American teachers have become more effective at teaching students to read words, we have virtually ignored the impact of teaching students to understand words, especially in the primary grades. There is evidence that a year of kindergarten, grade one, or grade two typically adds nothing to a child's vocabulary (Cantalini, 1987; Christian, Morrison, Frazier, & Massetti, 2000; Morrison, Smith, & Dow-Ehrensberger, 1995). Consequently, vocabulary is primarily determined by the words learned from parents and neighborhood friends. Not surprisingly, students from advantaged homes learn two or three times as many words as children from disadvantaged homes where many fewer words are used (Hart & Risley, 1995; White, Graves, & Slater, 1990). These findings suggest the importance of improving vocabulary instruction in primary grades.

Vocabulary size has an impact throughout the life span. Students with inadequate vocabularies are at a much higher risk of performing poorly in high school, community college, or university (Hazenberg & Hulstijn, 1995; Cunningham & Stanovich, 1997). The source of these difficulties occurs very early in life (Rowe, Raudenbush, & Goldin-Meadow, 2012). Young children with relatively small vocabularies comprehend less well. Because they comprehend less well, they often choose to read less. Over time students who read less acquire smaller vocabularies and comprehend less in later years (Stanovich, 1986). Children with smaller vocabularies will continue to lag behind children with larger vocabularies. Instead of being taught the necessary language, children with small vocabularies are often misdiagnosed as having a reading disability (Biemiller, 2010).

It is a little more expensive than the 1 game but has the more in-depth questions you might find useful.

Merry Christmas! I just went and re-uploaded it again - I didn't see any pages that went missing, but with computers, it is always possible. The questions begin on page 8 and go through 21. The children ask each other about the vocabulary and answer the definition. If it still doesn't download- please let me know, and I will contact "Teachers Pay Teachers". You can always send me your e-mail and I will send you the copies directly. I'm very sorry that you had trouble with the download.

Hello I purchased this games and I'm not sure how the question cards work, do you glue the answers on the back? If so how do you then pile them?
October 15, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Ed Connell
Ed Connell  (TpT Seller)
Good Morning!
Great question and thank you for asking.

The answers and questions are in blocks next to each other. Two things can be done.

One, the person who asks the questions can see both question and answer. The group gets to think of the answer but only the person asked the question gets to answer.

If the question is answered correctly- place that question in a different stack.

If the question is answered wrong- put the question and answer at the bottom of the question stack to be asked again! This encourages others to pay attention to the question because it might be asked again.

For a low group, a question answered wrong- I would read the right answer- reinforcing the idea and then put the question at the bottom of the stack to be asked again.

If it is a high group- I would not read the answer if the student gets the question wrong. This is personal preference and you can do as you think best for your students.

The other idea is to fold the question cards where the question in on one side and the answer is on the other. After the student makes an answer- see if it is right or wrong by flipping it over.

I hope this helps. If you have any other questions - PLEASE ask! Have a blessed day!

Do you have any specific plans, games, worksheets, or other suggested materials you would encourage a brand new 7th grade SS teacher to purchase? I am in Albany, GA. I have little guidance and am just finding my way throuh using standards and a very lackluster text book! I have yet to get the technology in my room that I need to engage the kids. (i.e. no promethean board connected, no computer...)

I can tell you EXACTLY what you need to do! It will cost you a little money- but your scores with SHINE! Clairmont Press!!!!! Go to this site: http://www.clairmontpress.com/crct.html

They have the right depth of subject for Georgia- the right questions for the CRCT. If you are starting out- this will start you out with people who are way ahead. As a teacher- this is THE thing that your system needs. Forget about those Coach books. They're nice near the end- but these prep books with help you TEACH the GPS! Hummm, no computer or projector? I feel for you on those. Look up "Trashketball" and do that in class with questions. Also, do you have a computer lab? www.quia.com is super fun and has activities that you create - like "Rags to Riches". Look that one up too. Also, Gallopade workbooks are something that is neat for Georgia teachers. Hope this info helps!

Bridget C. re: Bud Not Buddy Board Game
Hello,
Is the lack of punctuation and capitalization intentional? Also, there is a type-o on the card that asks why a woman tells Bud he is going to be a criminal. Did you use the game in a classroom setting? If you have a corrected or editable version, I would consider purchasing.
Thanks,
Bridget

Good Day!
To the best of my knowledge, it was used in the classroom. The teacher that developed the questions used them that way. I went through and did find many errors and corrected them all. I apologize for the errors. Thank you for letting me know. Have a blessed day!

Where's the preview? I rarely purchase things without previews.

Great question! I use to make previews for most of the early games, but few looked at them. Since my games follow the same format, I think many people downloaded the free product. That link is here http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Holy-Bible-Board-Game

If you think that version still needs a preview, I am happy to make one. I'll try to put one on tomorrow. Have a blessed day!

I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done!

I have a couple of suggestions that might help you to better market this product. First, create a cover page which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page. List several ways you use this product. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product. Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations.

I know you aren't teaching math, but I’d appreciate your input on my math freebie listed below. I like input from a variety of teachers.

I am your very first follower, and hope you will reciprocate at my store as well. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products

Welcome and good luck as you sell on TPT!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Love technology and old fashioned games. One of the biggest challenges in any classroom is making content interesting, relevant, and engaging. Students are growing up in a world in which they are constantly looking to be entertained - but not necessarily educated. Great teachers, however, can combine the two by providing “edutainment” for their students. One of the best ways to do this is by using content as a foundation to create classroom board games. When teachers teaching a unit, students are responsible for learning the names, dates, people, places, ideas, etc . . . There is quite a bit of information that must be covered according to state standards, and it is very easy for students to become overwhelmed and disinterested early on- games can help in the classroom.
