Hello! My 7th grade classroom is decorated in Aloha theme and I love cats..so I fell in love with your Aloha kitties! Can you make me just the Aloha Kitties reading log for 7th grade students? I need it to have a spot to read and then connect to the literature via quote and response style reading log. I like them to collect at least three-four quotes per reading log and then make a movie to book connection, book to book etc.. what do you think? I love the aloha kitties...so perfect for me.

Tier One words would be the basic sight words. Tier Two words are words you would provide explicit vocabulary instruction (since they are quite useful in your everyday life, and generally have more than one meaning). Tier Three words are specialized vocabulary, such as the jargon associated with a specific career or field of study. I hope this helps.

When we play I have, Who has whole group, it usually lasts about 10-15 minutes each round. Matching Bam! is a game for 2-4 players, and takes about 10-15 minutes to play each round. Scoot takes about 15 minutes once your class gets the hang of moving around the room.

If you purchased a PDF and it is blurry or printing funky after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry/funky, that's because you are still opening it with Preview. I hope that helps! :)

Oops! You caught a mistake! ;) The words in the superhero set (MWoftheWeek #8) are:
 Urgent (adjective) needing immediate attention, needs to be done right away
 Exhausted (adjective) extremely tired
 Ordinary (adjective) plain or usual, commonplace
 Analyze (Verb) to examine closely
 Survive (verb) to live, especially against the odds

I'll make the change in the description tonight. :)

Buyer re: Common Core Standards CCSS Grade 2 I Can Posters
I purchased this and think it is just what I was looking for, however in my efforts to conserve paper this year I wish they were made on 1/2 or 1/3 pages. Is it a huge job to alter? Am I out of line even mentioning this to you? Sorry. I just love the posters, just not so big. Positive feedback has been given.

Hello Mrs Sykes  (TpT Seller)
Great question! The I Can posters are full page and 1/2 page sizes. The 1/2 page sizes are near the end. Please email me with any additional questions/comments, and I will do my best to make sure the product meets the needs of your classroom. Hellomrssykes(at)gmail(dot)com

Buyer re: Mystery Word of the Week to Boost Vocabulary, Set #5, Aloha Cats
Would you consider creating a unit with all your words of the week in a superhero theme? I love these products & your selected words, the best I've seen! I need at least 32 (preferably 35) words, willing to pay for all your effort!

Buyer re: Before During and After Questioning Sheet
I downloaded "before During and after questioning sheet but I get blurry blocks that fade from black to white instead of the words (I still have the boarders). Did you use a special font that I need to have? Or did something go wrong?

Hello Mrs Sykes
Hello Mrs Sykes  (TpT Seller)
If you purchased a PDF and it is blurry after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry, that's because you are still opening it with Preview. I hope that helps! :)

Hello Mrs Sykes  (TpT Seller)
I'm so sorry you're having trouble downloading the games. Most of my files are PDFs, so make sure you have a program that can view PDFs. I use Adobe Reader, which is free. If your PDFs are blurry or fuzzy, try updating your software. I hope that helps! If you continue to have problems with my files, send me a quick email so I can help resolve this! :)
