Hi Cheryl,

Thank you so much! I'm glad you found my website.

Most of the time I make the anchor charts ahead of time. I use the charts to go over rules and information during the lesson. Some charts have parts for the students to manipulate such as with sticky notes prefixes and suffixes.

With a few, I set up the page with grid lines before class and then have students either write or tell me what to write on the chart. One example of this is with The Whipping Boy. The students had to list character traits and explain how the characters changed in the story.

I hope this helps.

Hi Amanda,

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like the products.


I am currently working on a hydrologic cycle, weather/climate unit. It is about three-fourths of the way finished, but will not be posted on TpT until I have it proofed. With these science units, I have my regular proofreader take a look for typos and a science teacher go over it for content. So, it will be a while before it is up.

I would like my VBS kids to make your cute brief cases (from the "context clues" pack) except minus the context clues stuff of course. Are the instructions on how to make the brief cases and what the strap/handle is made of in the download?

The unit contains instructions for making the brief case as well as a pattern for the top flap. The flap does have the FBI symbol and top secret stamp on it. If you purchase the unit and need these symbols removed for VBS, drop me an e-mail at teachwithgaymiller@gmail.com and I can send you a copy of the pattern without the emblems.

Hi there. I started using your Constitution lap book with my kids last week and it's great. They love it and it is so much more interesting than our social studies book. I'm wondering - has anyone mentioned a typo to you in the accordion fold Constitution time line? In mine, on the second version - the one with lines for the kids to write the events under the photos, on one of the pages, two of the states are listed twice - South Carolina and another state (I don't have it handy), while New Hampshire and one other are missing. (They are there in the answer sheet / filled in version.)

I just thought you'd want to know.

Hi Gay,
I have a question about your interactive grammar organizers. I am a German teacher and would love to edit these for use with my students - it's often when learning another language when students realize things they don't know about their native language. If I understand correctly, the files are PDFs and thus can't be edited. Am I correct on this, and if so, could you create an editable version that could be used by world languages teachers like me? Thanks so much!

I am looking for an online resource for chapter quizzes for 3rd-4th grade level novels. I am not in need of the entire unit. I had used your book unit website several years back, and loved it! It had a range of books, both of reading level and topic. Is there anyway to purchase access to just the quizzes? I had used this to keep my unmotivated readers reading. Unlike end of book quizzes like AR or Book Adventure, the chapter quizzes rewarded the students after only several pages. It helped my readers build their stamina when reading to self.

Hi Meri,

I have the Daniel Boone PowerPoint in an area on the website that is not password protected, and the PowerPoint that goes along with the lessons from The Cay unit in the password protected area. The information you need to get to the password protected site is in the unit.

Unfortunately, the website is super sensitive with the password. I recommend that you type it instead of copying and pasting because an extra space after the password will keep you from getting in.

I have the Common Core Standard listed on each constructive response question. At the beginning of the paragraph unit section I have a chart listing each standard taught in each lesson.

You will find a chart prior to the lessons listing which standard is taught in each lesson (mostly RL.4) If you need more information send me an e-mail at teachwithgaymiller@gmail.com and I can send you a copy of these charts.

Hi Stefania,

The unit has what I call "Lesson Plans at a Glance." There is a one page table with the vocabulary word(s), reading pages numbers and quiz, constructive response question(s), skill pages, and activities dividing the book up into 9 segments. This unit also has mini posters for the skill lessons (three for each lesson - Common Core Standard, Essential Question, and Lesson Goal).

This is a comprehensive unit. If you complete each activity, you will not need to add anything else.

I just doubled checked and the link is working. The username and password are super sensitive. You must be sure watch for capitals, no extra spaces, etc. Even if you place a space after the password, you will not get in. I tell everyone to type, in place of copying and pasting, the username and password because of this. If these suggestions don't work for you, please e-mail me, and I will send you the quizzes through e-mail. I'm sorry the site is so finicky. Please let me know how it goes.

Hi...I recently purchased your teacher's resource guide to the City of Ember novel.
With the Ch.1 resources, a couple of the links on the "Generators" page (14) as well as a link on the careers page 15 (ethemes) do not work. Do you know if these are still available and/or if the links need to be updated? Thanks!

Thank you for letting me know that some of the links are no longer active. I originally left links to other websites out of the unit because I have no control over what others do, but I had several requests from teachers who had used my materials when they were on the school website and missed not having these links. I just checked the 6 links on generators and careers. Three out of the six are still working. I am removing the ones that are no longer active. Thank you again for making me aware.

Hi Gay,
I recently bought your Hatchet unit, and, I must say, it is of very good quality. Some of the links will not open, however: namely. the vocabulary word webs, and the cause and effect (both from smart notebook). I also found a page on the web made by you that had wilderness survival and plane safety, etc. I am able to open the information, but not the quizzes. Is there any way you would be able to send me new links for the above, or direct me to the proper websites for the survival quizzes?

Thank you,

Kathie F.

Hi Kathy,

Here is a link where you can find safety quizzes for a plane emergency, being lost in the woods, lightning, and a tornado: http://www.mce.k12tn.net/survival/hatchet/hatchet.htm
They were created in 2000, so the technology is very simple. They are on a website that I no longer maintain, so I can't update them to a newer version.

The two Smart Notebook links are opening on my computer. I'm not sure if we are using the same version of Smart Notebook. I'm using Version 10. If you would like to e-mail me, I can send you the files. Maybe that would help.

Any chance you could send me an editable version of the explorer's cards? I am working on the lap book with my class and they are making a set of explorer's trading cards. I need to be able to print a set of all the name and picture side with out the description. Thanks! Anne

Hi,
I need some help I tried to upload three files to TpT today. My files will not download the same way they are written. The type moves after I download them. Do you have any idea? Have you ever had this problem? Thanks, Diana Pennington

Hi Diana,

I'm sorry you're having trouble. I'm tickled you have a TPT page started. I wish you the best!!

You will need to save your files as pdf files. This is really simple. In Word, click the "File" button at the top left corner of the screen. Then select "Save as." When the box comes up you will see two places across the bottom where you can select options. The first is where you type the name of your file. Directly under this, click the "Save as Type" box. A drop down box with options will appear. In the drop down box select PDF.



When you save a file as a PDF, it looks the same on all computers. Word files change from computer to computer.



Good Luck! Let me know if I can help you some more.

Hi,
I love your book units! I teach 7th & 8th grade SPED ELA and my students are really struggling with mood and tone. I was wondering if you have any resources that address these concepts?

Not a question but just a note to let you know that I was able to re-download my file for Where the Red Fern Grows and this time my computer saved it correctly.

I am looking forward to using your materials!

I'm really glad to heard this. I'm sure you must have been frustrated earlier. My students love reading this book. I hope yours will as well. ;>)

HI Gay:

I purchased the .pdf guide for Where the Red Fern grows. I left a comment on great it looked and then when I went to view it after getting out of the Internet, I noticed I didn't have it on my computer! I though it was saved but it did not.

Could you arrange for me to receive it again? I think it looks great and just what I need for one of my classes in January.

Sincerely,

Hi Barbara,

I didn't see this question until after you had the problem figured out. I spent the day with aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. for a Christmas get-together. I'm really glad you have the unit ready to go.



Have a great holiday, and I hope you enjoy teaching this fantastic book!

When was your Hatchet pack updated? Trying to figure out if I already got this update.

Hi Melanie,

9/23/1013 is the date I last saved the Hatchet file as a pdf. I'm not sure if this is the date I last uploaded the file to TpT or not. I'm guessing it is.

Is there anyway you would consider selling only the grammar section of this? I teach 7/8 ELA and have some very low low students who need some grammar help. Thank you!

You are not the first who has asked for this. After multiple requests, I put together a resource with just the organizers. You can find the resource here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Interactive-Grammar-Organizers-910289

I hope it works well with your students.
