Can you tell me more about your product? Is there one suggestion card per strategy? Could you tell me more about your timeline? I taught Daily 5 in first grade and have switched to fifth grade so I'm struggling a bit as to how long I stay on a strategy, the order or how frequently I revisit it. I absolutely loved Daily 5 in first grade but am struggling a bit in fifth grade. Are there picture book suggestions to use with the strategies as well? Please respond as soon as you can. Thank you.

These cards just lay out the way to present the strategy. All cards look like the ones pictured. There is a suggested teaching order but no books listed to go with the strategies. I know in first grade I spend about a week modeling a strategy in 5 th you could go faster. Many people that have purchased these comeback and buy other grade levels. It just takes the guess work out.

Hope that helps.

No. I did not create any lists. Since most lessons are meant to be mini cafe lessons I just pull from everywhere. I don't use the same books year to year. Sorry. I know that there are many other stores have suggested lists and there are even some freebies out there. I just always find I don't have the books they suggest.

Hi again - in reply to your question about which file - I purchased the AdditionFactUnit.pdf... when I downloaded it again today, it was blinking "revised," so certainly it is the one that you revised. However, it is still incorrect. I would post it online and give you the link so you could see, but then anybody could go get it. How would you like me to handle this? I gave you my email. Perhaps you should contact me that way, and I can email back the file that you "fixed" so that we can resolve this. Are you saying that your version is correct? PDFs don't corrupt, so I think we should be looking at the same thing. :-) Thank you.

I'm so sorry, but I downloaded your revised version of the Addition unit and it is still incorrect. PDF files can't corrupt in transmission, so it isn't something on my computer that is misreading it or mis-aligning it. I can email you a copy of the version I just downloaded if you send me an email - raysongalaska@gmail.com - and then maybe we can resolve this. Very much appreciated!

Your addition fact unit is very frustrating because the PDF is messed up. I've downloaded it again and the problem still exists. For example, look at page 27 - the heading for this page is at the bottom of page 26. This happens throughout the document. Could you either provide me with a Word document or redo your PDF and resubmit it so that purchasers can re-download a corrected version? Thanks.

Buyer re: Addition and Subtraction Fact Family Fluency Unit to 10
Hi! I teach in a multiage 1st/2nd grade classroom. We currently use the Timed tests that are like add 1 to a number, add 2 a number, add 3 to a number etc...The subtraction goes the same way. And the subtraction and addition are on different tests. ANYWAYS, I HATE THEM because they do not teach students the relationship between numbers like fact families do. I need to be able to assess students on addition and subtraction facts up to 20. By any chance do you have these made? I didn't see them in your store (just the fact families up to 10). Or , are your files editable? So I could start make fact families up to twenty myself? I really like how you have everything organized! Thanks so much!

Buyer re: Phonics - Long Vowel Team Book
Hi --I just asked about the Long Vowel Teams Book -- I'm also interested in your Phonics book- Ambiguous Spelling Patterns, I'd like the same information -- Does each individual vowel pattern has its own separate pictures?
I'm looking for pictures, a place to write the word with lines and one spelling pattern taught at a time --- I can ignore sheets that don't fit what I'm looking for, as long as there are enough of what I am needing. Please let me know which of your products fit this description? I'm interested in all the phonic patterns from cvc to r-controlled to v. teams., etc I don't have enough of a visual sample of your packages to know if they fit what I'm searching for. Thank you very much for your time and help.

FIRST grade is a HOOT  (TpT Seller)
Ambiguous vowels have a written sort where there sort words between the 2 or 3 spellings then there is a page with pictures to write the words. Many of the ambiguous spellings do not lend themselves to pictures that are easy to identify so there is usually 1 page with pictures but they are separated. There is also the ambiguous vowel spelling pack in my store that we use in addition to the book for homework or extra reinforcement. All of the other books are set up like the vowel team book. Everything is introduced seperately then mixed in the review pages. The Cvc book has a rhyming page that you have to spell the 3 words then circle the ones that rhyme. The only book that does not have pictures is the word family book. That one is just writing words.

Hope that helps. We use these for our entire 1st grade. Our kids are split by ability, we use a spelling inventory to assess them. It has worked great for us this year.

Buyer re: SMARTboard Finding the Main Idea
I would love to have the SMARTboard Finding the Main Idea activity. I've paid for it, but it will not download. The message I get on my computer says that it has some unreadable content and office can not open it. Help!

It is a smart notebook file. Be sure you are opening it on a computer that has the smart notebook software installed.

Is there a specific program that you use to create your items or do you use clipart?

Most of my stuff is done in word. I use clipart when the item calls for it. The owls and polka dots wee purchased clipart.

These ones are not because they are PDF. Sometimes non PDF files get all scrambled. If you decide to purchase them let me know and I will email you the word document so that you can edit them.
