Yes. In week 7, students have to take an independent reading of a fictional work or a fictional story from their textbook, and write an essay comparing the setting in the story to what they can research about what the setting is like in reality. :) The prompt includes a rubric. Hope this helps. Deborah

Thanks for your prompt response. Okay, so you could attach a velcro strip all along the green, yellow, and red areas and a piece on the back of each car. My question is,

If all the cars are on the green strip (at the beginning of each day) will they all fit?

I assume the sheets are 8.5 X 11, and that there are four cars on each sheet to print. If each car is approximately 4" long, and you have 25 students, you would need 100" of "road" to put them on. Am I missing something? Please help me understand. Thanks!

I think you might be missing the part in the description to where you blow it up to poster size. We have a poster maker at our school...I just blow it up to a larger size. If you don't have a poster maker, most copy center places do. You just bring it in on your flash drive and they can blow it up to a larger size.

Hi Kelly, I think it can work. It depends on your group. I have had a 3rd grade teacher tell me it worked well (they only used pieces of each slide) and a fourth grade teacher tell me it was useful for fourth grade standards. I had one fifth grade teacher say it didn't work for her, and one recently that told me it was great! I originally had it marked for 5th and up, but when I got feedback from that one fifth grade teacher, I changed the the grade level range. I am sure you will be able to use it as long as you adjust to your kiddos...let me know how it works for you! Deborah

Samantha G. re: Language Arts Standardized Test Practice PowerPoint
Any standardized CRCT practice tests or powerpoints aligned to the new Common Core ELA standards? I teach in Georgia and am DESPERATELY searching for practice test quizzes similar to this year's upcoming CRCT?

I teach in Georgia, too, and I am working on it to use with my own 7th graders this year. Keep watching! Will be posting soon! Some of the PowerPoints I have already made still match common core standards.

Watch the lines. When the first one is gone, half the time is gone. I am working on getting a digital timer embedded in the PowerPoint. When I do, I will send out an update.
Thanks! All my best, Deborah

I do have a few things already posted you might enjoy. You will have to copy and paste the links into your browsers, since they don't work in this Q/A section. Thanks!

You teach in a large middle school! We have about 1100. We hardly see teachers from other grade levels! I hope this helps.

Buyer re: Hunger Games Survival Challenge - SMARTBOARD GAME
Is this just for SMART Boards or will it work on Promethean Boards?

I don't think the two programs are compatible. As far as I know, it will only work on SMART boards.

Thanks.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have a total of 21 years teaching experience. After I received my M.Ed. from the University of Florida, I began teaching in elementary school, where I taught pull-out remedial classes for grades 2-5 and a section of K-1. Then I taught Pre-K for 5 years, before I decided to go up to Middle School, where I have been in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. I am currently teaching 7th grade where I seem to have found my niche. I am certified in Elementary Education as well as in Middle Grades in the areas of Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. I am also certified as a Teacher Support Specialist. I have an endorsement as a Reading Specialist K-12, and I also completed my Gifted and Talented Endorsement.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to make everyday an unforgettable day! I make every effort to appeal to a variety of learning styles, so that students can stay focused and engaged in learning. Children should walk away from my classroom with a love for reading and a hunger for learning something new everyday.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Kappa Delta Pi International Education Honor Society, Golden Key Honor Society, Teacher of the Year 1999-2000, Teacher Support Specialist, 2010 VFW Teacher of the Year for the State of Georgia

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Graduated with honors from the University of Florida.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Although I have many students, I have two children of my own. My daughter is now 31, and just got married! She is currently working as a chef at a fine restaurant in Seattle. My son is 30 and is currently working as a CNC programmer. I am enjoying being a grandmother of a sweet little boy. My husband and I love the outdoors, especially camping, fishing, and going to the springs or the beach. We have two dogs, a lab/chow mix and a border collie/daschund mix, who are both spoiled rotten.
