Hi- I don't actually have this as a Word doc anymore because I created it at school and this year we got all new computers. I didn't transfer over my files.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience. However, you could write in along the bottom where it says other.

Hello!
I have a proposition for you. Due to unexpected circumstances, we will soon become a single income (mine) family. That will seriously limit my available income for purchasing great products like yours!
I am a pretty good editor and would like to offer my services to you in exchange for free products. That would be a win-win situation. You would have another set of eyes on your new products BEFORE they are available to the public, and I could use more of your products without taking money out of our (soon to be very stretched) budget.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Absolutely love your ideas and want to begin implementing asap. I was wondering, have you ever heard of a book called Beware of the Common Core. Another teacher from a blog sight recommended it to me as a funny book to introduce the Common Core to my students. Said it was not a bashing book, but one that helps kids to not be afraid of what they might perceive the Common Core to be. Just wondering if you may have read or heard about it to see if its worth reading or not since you are very familiar with Common Core and have some great lesson ideas. Thanks

Thank you so much for the nice comments. While I don't claim to be an expert, I'm trying to incorporate as much Common Core as I can each and every day for my students. I had never heard of that book, but it sounds interesting, so I looked it up online. It looks like a really cute book about a first grader and trying to "stop" Common Core before it takes over! A very cute way to talk about it with kids. Anyways, after a little Google searching, I also found this cute worksheet that could go with the book:

I hope that helps a little. Let me know if you try the book and like it!

Wendy A. re: Guided Reading Basics: A how-to for 20 min. groups!
I just bought the 20 minute guided reading! Looks great but I am wondering what the other students are doing when you meet with a daily group??? I am not doing Daily 5, I just wanted reading groups after lunch! Any suggestions for 4th graders?

While I am meeting with a group, my students are doing Daily 5, specifically, Read to Self. All of my students are around the room with their book bins and reading silently to themselves. This is something you could do even if you're not doing the other parts of Daily 5. You could call it D.E.A.R. time or just Read to Self time. I know of other teachers, who also don't do Daily 5, are running literacy centers during this time. I tried doing centers, but I found too many students coming up to me with questions. Honestly, I've found the best solution is to have it be quiet reading time while I'm doing a group. The Daily 5 book explains exactly how to train your kids to pick a spot, stay in one spot, and read the whole time. This might be something you could try! I hope that helps a little bit! :)

I just purchased your 'guided reading basics' for $4.99. When I tried to print the pages, I got a message that said I wasn't authorized to print the documents. Any suggestions? It's of no use to me if I can't print it.

That is very odd and hasn't happened to anyone else who has printed/bought this product. Since I don't have a solution for you, I will email TpT and ask if this is something wrong on their end or if they have a solution for you. Thanks for letting me know!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I teach first grade! I love working with this age level- they are active, curious, and fun! They come to school with positive attitudes ready to tackle the day! My students inspire me everyday to try new things, take risks, and to grow! Check out our class blog: www.mtasch.edublogs.org where you'll see all the fun things we do in class, classroom routines, and our setup. Thanks so much for checking out my TpT store!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in balanced literacy and hands-on, engaging experiences. I believe students learn best through "doing", not "watching". I think good teaching is stepping back and allowing your students to explore with ideas and thoughts on their own. It's truly amazing when you "let go" and see what your students can produce when discussing and working in small groups or independently.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I am a member of my schools Literacy and Math teams.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I went to elementary school in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. For college, I got my BSE from UW-Whitewater. I am currently working towards my master's degree in differentiation through Concordia University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love teaching first grade! On my blog: www.mtasch.edublogs.org, you can see our classroom routines, projects we do, and first grade life!
