Hello,

I bought and download one of your theme packs. It was the Harcourt Trophies: Banner Days Theme One. I love it and use it for every story, however the "Cool Ali" story does not match the story in Banner Days. I think it is for the book Imagine That. Do you have activities for the story "Cool Ali" in Banner days??? Thank you! Your stuff is great!!!

Awesome!! Our standards include:

Keep a record in a science notebook of observations and measurements taken over time (weather, moon cycle, life cycle).

Investigate and describe how the sun warms the land, air, and water.

Observe that water on Earth can be a liquid (rain) or a solid (snow and ice) and can go back and forth from one form to another.

Investigate, observe, describe and record how weather changes from day to day and seasonally throughout the year using measurable quantities (temperature, rainfall, wind speed and direction).

Hi there,
I purchased your Interactive NB and Anchor Charts for Language for 2nd grade. I am loving this and my kids are doing great with the activities.

My question is, do you plan on, in the future, making something similar for Second Grade Reading Standards?

I have ran across several here on TPT, but I really love your activities and I am hoping you are considering making one too.

August 21, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Hollis Hemmings
Hollis Hemmings  (TpT Seller)
We based the posters on each standard, as they are stated-we had lots of discussions about suffixes, but since they are not specifically mentioned, we didn't include. The standards that mention prefixes and root words: o CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.2.4b Determine the meaning of the new word formed when a known prefix is added to a known word (e.g., happy/unhappy, tell/retell).
o CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.2.4c Use a known root word as a clue to the meaning of an unknown word with the same root (e.g., addition, additional).
We wished the CC was more specific, as we had numerous discussions about root words and base words and it depends on how the interpretation is. We settled with the traditional roots from Greek and Latin origins, and they didn't include suffixes.

Are you referring to the posters? Every standard has been rephrased and simplified, In some cases there are more than one poster to help convey the standard. We are using the posters on our standards board as a teaching aid. We did not state the standards verbatim as written but as how we teach them to our students so that they completely understand them.

Try this- I was able to change my document into a 1 inch square and back to full size again by this- Go to file and print, open the box properties and select the tab for effects. There is a selection for normal size and make sure it is on 100%. There is a sliding bar that resizes the page. Let me know if that works or not- I will keep looking for different settings- If not I will be happy to email you the powerpoint file we created the posters in.

Use your printer options menu- you can print 2, 4, 6 to a page easily by selecting multiple pages and specifying how many you need. You can also print grayscale or black and white. We found the graphics were clearer this way instead of reformatting the graphics themselves. In our photos, I printed 4 to a page in grayscale by using the print menu- If you have trouble, let me know and I will write up step by step directions to follow-

To make the mini posters, use your print option on the print menu. Go to the print menu, select pages to print and put in the pages eg. 89-111 for the polka dot, and then select page size and handling and choose the option for multiple pages. 2x2 will give you 4 mini posters. You can also select other options if you want more on a page. Print them in grayscale for black and white. We find it best also to lighten the copier settings when making the class set so they don't grey out. Let me know if you have any issues w/ this! Thanks for your purchase-Let us know how it goes or if any improvements could be made. Thanks Hollis and Gretchen

Loved it! We get such a pleasure of seeing our work used by other teachers and students. Loved it that the kids had so much fun shopping for their "ades"!

Hello! We used the Lemonade for Sale this week with our kids. They used your template to create their adds and labels. They got to 'sell' them and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!! I was wondering if I could post pictures of their items on my blog and credit you?
Thank you!

I love Steven Kellogg's tall tales like Davy Crockett, Paul Bunyan, Mike Fink, Pecos Bill, and Thuder Rose. We use the Reading Street basal and one of the stories was a myth but I didn't have anything to supplement the story with so I am looking for material to put with it. I couldn't find much so I thought of you. Thanks for pondering the idea!

Sounds like a plan...just have to put it in motion! These would be great for us to incorporate into our reading as well. Thanks again for your request and suggestions! Hollis and Gretchen
