Brigitte H. re: Sight Words: Fry Phrase Frolic With Brain Breaks
Upon further review, I realized this only has the first 100 Fry words. I purchased your dolch bundle thru third grade, and I when I saw this was 1st-3rd, I assumed it included the first 300 words since nothing in the description said it was only the first 100. I do see when I zoom on the picture it says first 100, but the description does not indicate that. Do you have more Fry sight word phrase cards?

Good question! I would recommend the Addition and Subtraction Systematic Practice: it combines addition and subtraction together in fact families so there is less confusion between the two. Plus, the order they are introduced is really working with my kiddos!

Hello, and thank you for your purchase! I'm so sorry to hear you're having trouble printing. First, make sure you have the most current version of Adobe Reader (not preview). If that doesn't work, try this advice from TpT Tech Support:

) Open the PDF file with Adobe Reader

2) Click 'print'

3) Click on 'advanced'

4) Check the 'print as image' box, and this should cover all potential issues

If that still doesn't work, email me at elementarymatters@gmail.com and we will see if there is another way to get it to you!

Hello,

I recently purchased your systematic addition and subtraction to practice with my second grade son and use in my first grade classroom. I am interested in your Hat Trick Place value game. I was wondering if their is a typo in the directions or am I misunderstanding the directions. The first part of the directions say to roll the die and look for that digit in the tens place value on the grid. Then the second roll of the die says to look for that digit ALSO in the tens place value on the grid. Is one of the rolls supposed to be the ones place value? Thanks for the clarification.

Best,

Diane Lewis
January 21, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Elementary Matters
Elementary Matters  (TpT Seller)
The first roll tells you which place to focus on. The second roll tells you which digit to look for in the place you rolled first. For example, if you rolled a 3 then a 5, the 3 tells you to focus on the hundreds digit. The second roll tells you to look for a 5 in that place...so you could cover 521, but not 235.

Another example: If you rolled a 2 then a 6, you would focus on the tens place (the first roll), then you would find a 6 in the tens place(the second roll).

Only one of the rolls refers to the place value, the other roll tells what number to look for in that place.

I'm hoping this makes sense! If not, please email me at elementarymatters@gmail.com!

Buyer re: Thanksgiving Story for Illustrating
I just left a positive review because my students and I really liked your book. I did notice, however, that the font you used contains "h's" and "n's" that look very similar. The stem on the h's are only a tiny bit longer than the stems on the n's. Students were sometimes a little confused about the words when they read them, as a result. It was a little thing, but I just thought I'd let you know. Thanks again for developing a Thanksgiving story that was at just the right reading level for first graders!

Thank you for your wonderful preview. I am thinking I may have a camping theme this year in my classroom and every preview I looked at so far was a "hodge-podge" of papers so I couldn't really tell what I was getting. That is great if it is for something familiar like contractions, but for what I want I needed to be able to SEE it. I have added it to my wishlist, it is the best of what I have seen so far. I will continue to look through your store for additional camping-themed products for the students to use, not so much of the labels/calender type things. Thank You!

I'm not sure about the typical level of a jr. high ESL student, so I'm not sure if this fits your description or not. It's got a sentence or two per page, and has 14 pages. The sample images on the product page are pretty typical of the rest of the booklet, if that helps!

It's called "Chiller" and it's straight from Microsoft Word 2010!

Wasn't it perfect for Halloween?

I'm not sure why that happened, but I've reloaded my original. If that doesn't help, email me at elementarymatters@gmail.com and I'll send you the right file.

Buyer re: Reading Two and Three Syllable Words
H, thank you for this resource. When I printed it, the words did not show up. Can you help me? I just installed Word 2010 last week, hoping that I would not have this trouble.
Thank you, Mary Kate

Hi Mary Kate,
I've heard that can happen when Adobe is due for an upgrade. I also re-loaded my product onto TpT, if that helps. Please let me know if this helps. I'm not much of a "techie", but I'll do what I can!

How does the freebie differ from the $2.00 one?

Good question! The freebie is a sampling of the full priced product. The freebie has 8 pages for illustration. The full priced product has 30 pages for illustration. I think I'll add that to my product description!

Thanks!

Scoot is fun! Each child gets a game card on his/ her desk, and it stays there. The child records the answer to that card on his/ her answer sheet, then when the teacher calls "Scoot" they advance in a pattern, one at a time, to all the desks throughout the room. By the time they're done, they've "scooted" all the way around the room and answered a question from each child's desk. Much more fun than a worksheet!

I am confused with the directions. If you roll 2 dice, how would you get a number higher than 12?

That's a typo... it should say roll 3 dice! (I don't know how I missed it, but I'll be fixing it tonight, so feel free to download a cleaner copy!) I wish all questions were this easy to answer!
