David Gawa L. re: Discover Native American History
It's very informative. I'm using it in Grade 2 in reading groups for both social studies and non-fiction writing. While it is a difficult text for my young students, the higher readers were often able to help bridge the gap and our reading buddies pitched in. The charts were a very helpful feature.

The only thing I'd like changed is the word "Indians." Instead of "Lakota Indians" you could say "Lakota Nation." A quick find and replace would make a huge difference at my school.

I will absolutely do that, and I will re-upload it with that change. You should be able to get the updated terminology at no extra cost. The way you are using it is exactly how I meant for it to be used. I used it with the Wow and Look versions of this book, for my lower readers (Look is lowest level, Wow is middle level, Discover is higher level.) Thank you for your feedback!

Buyer re: Wow! Lakota!
Hi! The description says this is "on level". What grade level is it "on level" for?
November 6, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Elke Sundermann - Anyone Can Learn
Wow is for 2nd-3rd grade, Discover is a level above that, Look is a level below.

AnnMarie Hansen  (TpT Seller) re: Wow! Ancient China!
Hi, I purchased your WOW! China and I really love it but was wondering if you could send me it so I can make the font smaller and different portions of the text to one page. I have very limited copies so I would like to use the least number of copies as I can. Thanks!

Elke Sundermann - Anyone Can Learn
Yes, of course! E-mail me at elke@anyone-can-learn.com so I know where to e-mail a copy in Word.

Buyer re: Look! Iroquois!
Love this book. I found that the words are overlapping the pictures on one of the early pages - the part discussing the three sisters. Am I the only one having that trouble?

Found the problem, uploading it and you should get revision alert so you can download it free. Sorry about that, switched word versions and it messed up the formatting. Thank you for telling me!

Suzanne H. re: Look! Cherokee!
I love your books, Wow! Cherokee! and Look! Cherokee. I have a concern though, about the accuracy of one fact in the books. It says that Cherokee lived in tipis and all my research has shown that they did not. Here are a few resources http://www.cherokeetourismok.com/FAQ/Pages/16.aspx
http://www.native-languages.org/houses.htm
http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/109474/Cherokee


This is from the first link:
What type of houses did Cherokee people live in a long time ago?

The Cherokee people never lived in tipis. The Plains Indians lived in these, as they were able to be moved when following herds and hunting.

The Cherokee people historically lived in houses made of mud and clay with roofs of brush and river cane. In the winter time, they lived in even smaller clay and mud houses which included the construction of the roof, as well, in order to keep warm.

By the late 1700’s, many Cherokees were living in log cabins while some even lived in clapboard houses like their non-Indian counterparts. Today, Cherokees live in many types of dwellings based on economic abilities, including some who still live on ancestral land in small cabins or other small homes.

I live in Cherokee County, Ga. and our Social Studies book suports the same information. I would like to use your books, but feel I can not do so with this fact. Would you be willing to edit your product? or send me the word document so that I can edit it? Thanks so much.

I am finding that some of the information I found in my research was not accurate, so thank you! I revised them, after double-checking all of the information, and I've already uploaded them. If you are not able to upload the revised version free, then let me know and I will send you the PDF! Again, thank you for your correction, and use it as a tool when speaking to your students about critical reading!

Wow series is on-level for 2nd grade, above level for 1st grade, and below level for 3rd. Look series is one reading level below that, and Discover series is one level above that.

Buyer re: Discover Ancient India
What is the difference between your Look! series and your Discover series? I want to teach a unit on Ancient Asia and need something with lesson plans and activities.
January 18, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Elke Sundermann - Anyone Can Learn
The Look Series is for below-level readers, the Wow series is for on-level readers, and the Discover is for above level readers. I would use Look for 1-2 grade, Wow for 2-3 grade, and Discover for 3-4 grade. They are all leveled readers. The Teaching Ancient Asia book has lessons, activities, standards, etc. to go with the books.

Sheryl Easterling  (TpT Seller) re: Discover Cherokee Native Americans in History
I am interested in more information before purchasing your ebook Discover Cherokee Native Americans in History. How many pages are included? How many different concepts/topics are included? Would the content be relevant to the Cherokee in North Carolina? Thank you for your time to provide additional information.
November 21, 2011 Report inappropriate comment
Elke Sundermann - Anyone Can Learn
Discover Cherokee is a nonfiction that covers topics such as the Trail of Tears, Sequoyah, their clothes, shelters, food, region, baskets, and a few other pieces of information, to help kids get an idea of how these people lived in history, and lets them know the Cherokee are still here with us now. It applies to the entire region of the Cherokee, including North Carolina. It basically includes everything that we need to teach in Arizona, but if you find that there are a few things that are left out from your standards, let me know, and I'm always up for revising it to fit everyone's needs. For the purpose of teachers on this website needing info in a concise place, I reformatted my books for standard paper size, so there are only 7-9 pages in these books. If you'd like the actual book (paperback bound), you can also find it on Amazon as a regular book for leveled reading, in 6"x9" format. Enjoy!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching elementary school for 9 years, and taught 3-5 year-olds for 10 years before that. I have been researching and writing for 4 years to teach standards-based content in a way that I feel is very successful. I started writing the materials myself, due to a lack of materials in social studies with the right readability level. I have always loved to write, and now I've found a very useful outlet!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I incorporate reading, writing and math into every subject area. I use differentiated text for different reading levels (some of which I've written), we use it for note-taking and close reading, and we apply what we learn in writing. I create word problems based on the skills I'm teaching, related to the topic we're learning about. This enables me to teach the skills many more times than if taught in isolation only during subject blocks of time. I missed the 2nd day of the Stanford 10 testing this year due to a sick daughter, and when I came back the next day and asked my students how things went, they said, "Ms. Sundermann, there wasn't anything on there that you haven't taught us, like a hundred times!" More importantly for me, is that the students are truly understanding the people, places, and times that we study, and they're going home and having enlightened conversations with their families about it! Enough said!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I started writing these books, because I love to write and because I needed the materials for my students. I found the current standards-based information either too shallow or too high in readability for young children. My books are written in 4 levels: LOOK series - 1st-2nd grade lexile) WOW series - 2nd-3rd grade lexile) DISCOVER series - 3rd-4th grade lexile EXPLORE MORE series - 4th-5th grade lexile My products also include quick-write, inductive math, math word problems, and short informational text with questions to assess.
