I think I found the group on facebook through (I think) your page. I made a request to join. If not I'll try to provide my email so that its not public here on Tpt.

Hi Jamie


I noticed you mentioning that you used another ppt for the Global Warming section of your natural disaster unit. Could you direct me to it? I love the unit- and would love to complete it with the addition of this powerpoint if it's still available.

Thanks

Janine K. re: Natural Disasters Unit - Social Studies/Geography
Hello Jamie,

I've been using your Natural Distasters unit for a geography class I am teaching and I love it. It's exactly what we are looking at and studying, and requires only minimal modification to bring it up to my grade level. However, when looking through it, the copy I downloaded was missing the powerpoint presentation for the global warming lesson (Lesson 13). Is there anyway for me to get this powerpoint?

Thank-you,
Janine

I'm glad it is working well for you!
When we taught this unit we used a PowerPoint we found on tpt for the global warming lesson. It was not one I created so I did not feel it appropriate to include that one in the package.

I took a look and found the link to the PowerPoint I used.

I'm not sure how that works unfortunately. I was out sick today and the file is on my work computer. I'm going to take a crack at converting it tomorrow. If I'm unable to do so I'm happy to email you something else from my store of equal value - however it is my understanding that customers are to ensure that they have the abilities to open the files prior to purchase. Please let me know if you would like me to convert the file and send it to you or send you a new product of equal value. Thank you.

I have searched on how to refund the product. If that is what you would prefer over the options above I will contact the site to refund your money.

Thanks. Could you just put it in a word or PDF document? That would be as simple as cutting and pasting on a blank sheet.

I'm not sure. I only use the notebook program at work. I'm happy to try to convert the file into another format if I can figure out how. It's iep crunch time at school so it might take me a little bit.

Ms. Somers, I was about to use your histogram sheet my class with my class when I noticed that the histogram example had over-lapping intervals. Over-lapping intervals is not allowed. I made a game out of it andd let my class tell me why the example was faulty. They had fun searching, but I thought I would alert you in case you would like to make the adjustment.

Hi Jaime,

I purchased this timeline assignment and am using it with my class... but I do have a question. Have you got available the dates that go along with the answer sheet? My students are having a hard time placing the events that occured over years... especially the railway one!

A preview file for this would tempt me to buy it! (I need to get an idea of how adaptable it is, as I am teaching this in French Immersion). A popular method of creating one that's clear but protects your work is to insert small pictures of the pages into a single PowerPoint slide, and then to save that as an image file. I'd love to check this out further (and soon!) :-)

Thank you for this great question - some screaming, yelling and hair-pulling later I have mastered something new that I'm not sure I would have attempted otherwise. The first two pics are from the agent of change ppt, the third is graphic organizer; and the 4th pic is from the reasons for confederation ppt. Please let me know if there's anything else I can help with. Thanks!

Jessica Michele  (TpT Seller) re: 'S' blends/clusters Concentration Game
Hi there. I just posted an activity I made for a student I tutor and thought I would conduct a search to see what other S blend activities were out there. I noticed that we used the same font and even some of the same clipart. I just wanted to let you know I love the idea of playing concentration with the blends and pictures AND that I did not intentionally choose a similar look for my activity. Great minds must think alike...or the clipart choices for smile were sorely lacking! :)

No worries at all! I put this together really quickly at work one day because my students needed something different to practice with - there are only so many clipart choices it seems!

Buyer re: Natural Disasters Unit - Social Studies/Geography
Hi Jaime,
We are going to begin an integrated English/Humanities Natural Disasters Unit in a few weeks time. Your extensive unit looks as if it could be ideal, but I'm interested to know how much Language Arts is incorporated in this unit. Our biggest struggle is to give both subject areas justice, as we do very easily get carried away with the Humanities side of things. Are there specific English skills being taught through this unit?
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Kind regards,
Leeanne

Hi Leeannes, I created this unit for a rotary class. The colleague that used it wanted it focused mainly on the humanities side - how these natural disasters are affecting humans. There is a graphing (math) assignment in it and some newspaper articles to read and discuss. We were focusing primarily on note-taking skills, hence the student note-taking booklets as we saw this as something needed in our students. I hope this helps!

I created the assignment from a textbook, but unfortunately it has been a few years and I haven't used the text again as I am no longer at that school (and unfortunately can't remember the text at the moment). I have done this assignment as a research piece as well, where the students research in small groups and we discuss afterwards. Hope this helps.

Hi Jaime. Thanks. May I assume from your profile and followers that you're still just starting out with TpT? FYI There's a pricing chart that was created for us to use as a reference - it's not the Bible - but it's an excellent reference. I'll post a link to it on the Selling Tips Forum for you to have a look at. The more info we have, the better, right?

Hi Krystal. It's 4 pages but the first one is minor (its the title page for that day so to speak). The other three pages include the student handout, student notetaking sheet, and rubric. I used it with the textbook I had at the time that broke down the colonies so if you are without a textbook that does something similar it makes a great research assignment. Hope that helps. J.
