Hi,
I found you on the TPT forum in the group for newbies. I am your newest follower. Please checkout my store and Facebook page when you get a chance! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Smart-Board-Lessons/459295564182287
It is taking me a long time to get products out there and I do not have a family to take care of any longer. But it is fun and I have learned a lot of things reading the forum. I learned about starting work in the PowerPoint first. I learned I had to make things cute...lol. One of the biggest things I learned is, if the answer is not on the forum, it is probably in a you tube video. Good Luck and I look forward to following you and wish you the best!

Hi Ms. Lindley,

I bought your Reading Street Unit 4, Grade 3 bundle and am loving it!!! In fact, after I send this message, I'm going to see if you've produced a Unit 5 bundle to purchase.

As I have used it extensively, I've found a couple of small discrepancies that may not have been caught. On the Vocabulary Practice, Week 1: The Man Who Invented Basketball, question #8. On the student response page has the choices of "many, some, and several," while on the answer sheet the choices are "many, some, a few."

In the spelling packet Unit 4, Week 2 (answer key) number 7 in the box reads "teeth" and I'm thinking it should read "earth."

Neither of these are big deals but I thought you might want to know.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful talents!!!

What are you using to create your worksheets? I've tried to make some extra math sheets of my own (just for my students), but I can never get them to look the way I want on MS Word??? Can you give another teacher some advice? :)

Jan Lindley  (TpT Seller)
I usually use MS Word. I use a lot of text boxes to put things right where I want them. I have purchased math clip art such as clock faces and fraction circles that have helped greatly. There is also a lot of free math clip art available here on TPT and other sites on the web. You can search "free clipart" or "public domain clip art" and find some helpful images. I also have some math fonts that help me create number lines, fractions shapes and so on. It has been a lot of trial and error and trying different things until I get it the way I want it. Lots of sellers on TPT use power point to create activities and then just save the file as a PDF. That is easier in lots of ways, but I usually use a fair amount of text and I struggle with not being able to continue from one page to the next in power point. I hope this helps. I know how often teachers need to create things for their own kiddos because the resources provided by schools and districts fall short. Best of luck to you!

Do you by any chance have flash cards to go with your mastery tests? I am able to find flash cards, but I would like to color coordinate the tests, flash cards, and maybe a certificate for each set of facts. I cannot find flash cards that have all the +1 facts together, all the +2 facts together, etc. to make it easy to color coordinate when printing.

I am glad that the comprehension activities and tests have been helpful in your classroom. I don't have plans to create materials for the amazing words lists at this time. I do not spend much time in my classroom on the amazing words. I found that three word lists--spelling words, vocabulary words, and amazing words were just too much to manage. There is so much packed into every week of the Reading Street program, that I'm having to do a lot of picking and choosing about what I can fit into my schedule and what I can't. I have been working on some study skills activities that use the Reading Street text, such as using the table of contents and the glossary. I hope to have those ready to post within the next few weeks.

I have bought all of your bundles from Reading Street and they are great! I'm just now putting together my Unit 3 binder and I'm very confused. I have printed it twice to make sure someone else didnt take some part of it. In the Vocabulary Practice Activities part, Week 2 is Pushing Up the Sky and I think all of it is there. But then I don't have the vocabulary pages for the third story, Seeing Stars, and on one of the week 3 sheets it says Vocabulary Test Unit 3 Week 3 Pushing Up the Sky, which is really the 2nd week's story???? It is like it is missing the third story sheets?

Rose Mary B. re: Place Value and Number Sense
Is this common core?
July 27, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Jan Lindley  (TpT Seller)
Common Core standards for second grade require students to understand 3-digit numbers as hundreds, tens, and ones; to write numbers to 1000 using numerals, word names, and expanded form; and to compare 3-digit numbers using < > =. Second graders are also required to mentally add or subtract 10 or 100 from a given number and to represent whole numbers on a number line. Common Core standards for fourth grade require reading and writing multi-digit numbers using base ten numerals, word names, and expanded form; and comparing numbers using < > =. The footnote states that fourth grade expectations are limited to whole numbers less than or equal to 1,000,000. This particular packet addresses numeral names, word names, expanded and standard form, comparisons, adding and subtracting a ten or a hundred and comparing numbers on a number line. It also covers other aspects of place value such as place value models. All of these concepts are addressed with 4-digit numbers, so this packet aligns with fourth grade common core standards. I have another packet--Place Value with Three-Digit Numbers which aligns very closely with the second grade Common Core standards. So, I guess the quick answer to your question is: It depends on which grade you are going to use it with. If I can provide more clarification, please let me know!

Problem #8, the answer sheet says the answer is C, but it should be D. Also, maybe a suggestion would be to have 1/2=2/4 rather than 2/4=1/2 so it will line up with the picture. The answer is wrong on pg. 64 of the pdf. I have really enjoyed using this resource for my students!

Hi,
How many pages are included, and are any of the questions comprehension related?

Thanks!

There is a two-page vocabulary practice activity and a two-page vocabulary test for each story in Unit 4, so a total of 20 pages, plus an answer key. Students use the vocabulary words in various ways, such as matching word with definition, using the word to write a caption for a picture, using vocabulary words to complete cloze sentences, etc.

I read your blog about pullouts. I have 39 years in. Yes it is frustrating. I cut the assignments in half. Social Studies isn't common core so I don't worry about that. I have High School TA's, or reliable parent, or you tube help to catch kids up on what they have missed. Also depends on the severity of the child's learning disability. You have to pick your battles. Good luck.

Thanks so much for the suggestions. The battle of the pull-outs is one where everything has to give a little, I guess, or no one wins!

I just bought the Reading Street Spelling Unit 4 packet and the pages are messed up on it. Is there any way that you can correct them so that each worksheet is on one page instead of two different pages. Thanks so much I have really enjoyed using these with my 3rd graders!!

Elizabeth H. re: Quadrilaterals Unit
I'm curious ... why didn't you include paralleograms in your quadrilaterals unit?

I have taught parallelograms as part of my lessons on quadrilaterals in the past, and that was my inclination. However, as I studied the Common Core standards, I noticd that parallelograms are not mentioned. I made the quadrilaterals unit to align with Common Core standards, and included only what was in those standards.

Buyer re: Possessive Nouns
We are in a small private school. There are 14 third graders in one class and 15 third graders in another class. Do we need to buy 2 licenses? We will probably use this information with our classes next year. Please advise - also, do we need to purchase a new license each year?

great packet!! we have purchased one and will be happy to purchase the other if necessary!


Thank you for the answer and a way to save!

Yes, you will need to purchase a license for each classroom. If you buy them at the same time, the second is 50% off regular price. You will not need to purchase it again for next year. Once you have purchased the license to use the product, you can re-use it in your own classroom year after year.
Thank you for your feedback. I hope your students enjoy the activities!

Computers tend to default to capitalized items in lists and charts. When you update these (teacher on right on p. 2, for example), will you please update the download?

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

As an elementary teacher for 34 years, I have struggled with a lack of quality materials that provide the necessary practice for concept mastery. It has been my experience that many textbooks and commercially produced materials do not provide the depth of practice and repetition required for student mastery. I have been writing most of my own supplemental materials for years, striving to meet the needs of students who need more than one or two exposures to a concept in order to achieve mastery. My many years in the classroom have provided me opportunities to work with changing curriculum standards and increasing demands for student performance. I have worked with second and third graders throughout my career and have a very solid understanding of the learning process and the needs of young students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is my own. I do not know a label that would be fitting. I believe in supporting learners, while not doing for them anything that they can do for themselves. I use a lot of scaffolding-i.e.,explicit teaching, followed by a lot of guided practice, then a lot of independent practice. I believe that time on task is crucial to mastery. I strive to create a learning atmosphere is warm and friendly, but at the same time businesslike, and "no-nonsense." I believe that the most effective way to build students' self-esteem, is to help them master the skills and concepts they need to be successful.
