We use the fountas and pinnell sight word lists so we just go onto the next list. I also try to make sure that the children can spell the words fluently. Sometimes I will send home fluency rings as well. It really all depends on the child!

Hi there- I love your Barbara Milne worksheet and would like to use it with my students who are learning english. However, your worksheet has the old image icons. The new version (available on youtube) has some variations that allow for better mnemonics. For example, letter D is a dinosaur instead of a dolly so that that letter "d" is written within/hidden in the associated image. If you have the time, please create a second with the update. I would be so appreciative and willing to pay for it! Thanks. :)

Growing Kinders  (TpT Seller)
I still do my math centers - because I have such a large group this year (and a very chatty group!), I've separated them into pairs. I have 12 tubs - but only 6 centers. So each center is doubled up - same activity, but in 2 different tubs with 2 different pairs working on them. I have 2 rounds of daily 5 (this is still a work in progress for me!). I use all of my literacy center activities in my daily 5 drawers for word work. I also have sorts added into my daily 5 as an option. I use some activities from my word work packs too. I am HOPING to finish March tonight - I am almost done! I hope that answers your question!!

You won't be able to change the font - it is embedded in the file. The font will automatically get smaller the more letters you type. That's the best way to program it to fit.

In reference to your Jan. 10 response to my question, I would say this IS an error. "Tomorrow is" would actually be incorrect grammar. We should be using the future verb tense, therefore "Tomorrow will be" is correct. (In fact, on pages 9 and 34 you have used "Tomorrow will be", but the other pages have the error.)

Phew - you made me think today! It is actually grammatically correct to use either format. I've contacted a a language professor as the University to try to get a clear answer. He says that it is very common and perfectly acceptable to use the present tense to refer to future events: My parents arrive on Thursday, the sale ends tomorrow, we start testing at five o'clock.

Although I do use it as well (which is probably why there are both in the calendar pack), tomorrow will be Sunday does actually sound slightly strange. You could argue that tomorrow already IS Sunday, i.e. that's already been determined. When you have "will" in there it sounds like it hasn't completely been determined, or is depending on some condition. Does that make sense? English is a hard language!! I do think both are perfectly acceptable, but I think "tomorrow is" sounds more natural - just thinking about how we use it in daily language.

If you would like me to change specific pages for you, I will - but, I will change the rest of the pack to be consistent with the "tomorrow is" phrasing. If you could e-mail me the pages that you would like changed, that would be ever so helpful!

Thanks for making me think a little bit today - haha!

You can e-mail me at growingkinders@gmail.com with the page numbers you would like changed :) I will get to it as quickly as I can!

Thanks! Kathleen

Hi! Could you change the "tomorrow is" to "tomorrow will be"? As in page 38. Thanks so much!

Buyer
Ok, I purchased your Scoopin' Up Sight Words! Programmable Word Wall! Not so happy with the purchased. I type a word into the card move to the next card and my first word is gone. The little cards that have 10 lines to put the words can not put a word in the first line. I also don't like that I can not change the size of the print. Not worth the money I spent.

The product is editable, but the software does not allow it to be completely customizable. There are limitations to the way the software was written and unfortunately I can't change that :(. If you can send me an email to growingkinders@gmail.com we can visit more and I can help you to get the words the way you want. I want you to be happy with your purchase! :)

B S. re: Groundhog's Games! Games for CVC Words
Is there anyway to change the font used on the "I Have, Who Has" game? I know that the kids should be exposed to different fonts, but to me it look like the d would confuse them. If it is too much trouble, that's okay and I will go with what you have. Thanks for your consideration.
