Could you explain the directions for the dice game? I read through the packet and looked at the pre-filled in squares on the recording sheets, but I'm still quite confused. Maybe it's just after school daze! :)
March 20, 2014 Report inappropriate comment

Hello! I'm sorry for any confusion!!! You roll two die and find the sum on the box to the left to know what action (+ or -) to do with the base 10 blocks. On the right, you record your dice roll & sum, and your running total of how many base 10 blocks you have. Each partner plays with their own paper. You win by having the largest value of base 10 blocks when time is up or when all the rows are filled in. I hope this helps!!

Hi,

I purchased both your Feb. and Mar. crunch bundles and when I download them adobe won't open them because it says they are corrupted. Do you have any advise?

Thanks,
Amy

Hi Amy! How frustrating for you!! I have not had any issues with those files. Often when Adobe won't open them it is because it needs updating to the most current version. Can you please give that a try and email me at growingfirsties@gmail.com if it is still giving you trouble? You can also submit a ticket to tpt about the issue if it persists. Thank you so much for your interest and support! I want to help you resolve this as soon as possible!

TinyGrads  (TpT Seller) re: FREEBIE Reading Strategies Posters & Bookmarks
Hello!

We saw your freebie, and would love to put it up on TinyGrads.com as a free download there as well by our large community of teachers and parents.

Though our policy of no "external links" prevents us from "linking" to your TpT store directly, we'd love to give you credit, put your name and TpT ID picture up there, and use text to point our parents and teachers to your store where they might want to purchase your “for sale” items from there.

We thought this might be a great a way to give you a little “free advertising” and for our community of parents and teachers (and the children they teach) to be able to enjoy your work as well.

We'll take care of loading your freebie up there, all we need is your permission.

Hope you have a great day!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks!

Hi Jeff! Thank you for your interest! I would say that there are elements that are universal and not limited to primary grades. That said, there is a good chunk of STAR Readers that is more Primary.

Folks have told me that they have used Finding Proof successfully as intervention with third graders.

I have more details on my blog about both packs. I can't attach the links now but if you want to shoot me an email at growingfirsties@gmail.com I will send them your way. :)

I always want my buyers to be happy with their purchases!

I love your ideas! Thank you! I was wondering if you could look at page 44 (Presidential Sentences) in the Common Core Bundle (February). The word "vote" and the sentence example about a flag is down a line from where I think you meant for it to be... it is covered by the line. Also, on the bottom page 156 it has your "Growing Firsties" title covering the words needed on the page. If you can make changes, please let me know so I can download them before I print them! Thank you, again!

Each kit includes books, instructions, academic standards, planned questions, materials, and activities that students can do with their parents at home. I have downloaded and used your Football Frenzy Freebie PDF to use as an activity with my football-themed book bag. These homework kits are a huge hit with my students and their parents.

Hi Melanie!
One of the wonderful things about TpT is that when you make a purchase, if the seller ever updates the file you can re-download it! Go to "My Purchases" and find the Volume Chart and then re-download the updated version. :)
Best wishes - Lisa

Kelly Becktold  (TpT Seller) re: FREEBIE Reading Strategies Posters & Bookmarks
I love this set and have the posters hanging up by my guided reading table. I was wondering if you possibly had your heading "Ways to Take Action" anywhere bigger to use as a heading above all the posters? Or if you would share what font you used to make it, so I can try to recreate something similar that matches? Thank you!!

Kelly...this is a GREAT idea!!! I will do my best! :) The font for that is: KG Lego House from Kim Geswein, I believe. I think I also used KG Be Still and Know and Hello Basic (Hello Literacy, Jen Jones). I hope this helps!!!
HUGS! Lisa

Thanks Lisa. As I mentioned due to my busy schedule I have vowed not to buy any additional products unless the numbers are listed on them. I have countless CC products that I have bought over this past year that I need to assign the CC numbers to and I do not want to add to this project. I found it so much easier to establish a file folder on each CC number, rather than have a section for Author's Purpose, Cause and Effect, etc. Thanks anyways.

Hi there, I have bought things from others who gave me PPT version so I can easily edit the writing. Can you please send my the owl cards with only the colour on it. e.g if the owl is red it should say red instated of the group number.

Hello! I am guessing either they used graphics with different Terms of Use or they bought a program that makes files editable easily. Best wishes to you!

I am so sorry to trouble you. Instead would you be able to send me a word version or PPt version so I can do the editing. The reason I ask is that I would like to add the names of the colours as well. I'd really appreciate this help! Please email it to nelusha@gmail.com. I am hoping to get it ready for kids next week.

Due to copyright I am unable to do that. The graphic designers have terms of use that I must follow to stay legal. A friend of mine did request a color group format that I did make last year and I am happy to send that your way but I cannot revise it any further. I am so very sorry and sincerely appreciate your understanding.
