Hi Allisonkelly89 -
It's taken me a bit longer to get everything polished and up to date. I'm working to get them up by mid-week of this week, in which case I'll have all 5 posted, including a mnemonic device to help students remember the rivers, too. It's one I use in class and it works like a charm!
Thanks for your patience - I can't wait for you to come back and benefit from the resources. I am so thankful for your support and interest!
I will follow-up, if I can, with another reply allisonkelly89 as soon as they're up so you can go right to them.
Again, many thanks and all the best to you!
Jennifer

Hi Odugurl -
Thanks for asking - I will upload the other materials I have - in GA we study the Mississippi, the Rio Grande, the Colorado, the Ohio and the Hudson. I'll try to get them up as soon as possible! Check back with me by the end of the month. I have identical materials for all.

Buyer re: Multiple Intelligence (MI) SMARTboard (Secondary/Adult) by Jennifer A. Gates
Hello,

I am really interested in this Smartboard presentation for my 8th graders, but I just had a few questions. Is the survey at the end one you found online or did you come up with one based on your information? Also, is there a section in the powerpoint with ideas of how best for the students to study based off of their discovered intelligence? Thank you so much for your time!!

HI -how fantastic to hear from you. I would love to respond directly to your questions. Could you provide your email and we could have a dialogue going based on my answers and I can then provide information more specific to your students? I look forward to hearing from you when you have time. jgates@att.net - please put TpT in the subject bar as part of your response.
All the best,
Jennifer

Hi Nanette -
I'm not sure why it's shown up as out of stock, but no worries!
I have it and am sending it.
Should be there soon.
It may be an immediate transfer within the program, as you have made the purchase so that others cannot now buy it because you have claimed it.
All the best,
Jennifer

Buyer re: War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
How many do you have?
January 12, 2013 Report inappropriate comment

Jennifer Gates  (TpT Seller)
Hi Mrsamysmith - Thanks for your inquiry. I have 6 War Horse left.

I also have the small assortment of unoriginal templates I used with the books, mostly in Word doc form. If those would be of help, I'd be happy to send those with a/the book(s).

I wanted a way to connect them to the overall unit of Courage we were studying and the movie had recently come out but none of my students had yet been exposed to it.

We used them for a 5th grade gifted program novel study; the students made collage inspired by the book. Then, we had a gallery showing, and they were assigned to act as 'artist in residence' when with their hanging piece, explaining the connection to the book with gallery visitors.

Students responded weekly to the novel study, completed a choice board, their collage, their presentation and connected it to the overall unit (Courage) which included the Great War.

The kids loved it and really connected to Albert and Joey. Their art was amazing and they had a fantastic time going much deeper into their understanding through the assignment into the varied ways into which both people, and animals, can display courage.

(Their other major novel during the 9 weeks was One Crazy Summer.)

Again, thanks for your question and let me know if there's anything else I can answer or support.

Best regards,
Jennifer

Thank you! I bought some of your "stuff" already. We do centers during guided reading. This has been my biggest challenge and expense. I will be checking for more ideas. Have a great week! Sandy

Hi Jennifer, Glad to hear that I am not alone. I taught Kindergarten for 20 years, was moved to second grade as a apecial ed co-teacher and after being there 3 months was moved to a regular ed second grade. I am scrambling to get quality work together for centers. I want them to learn, not just keep busy. So, if you think that it would be adaptable to second grade, I will buy it. Thanks! Sandy

Sandy - you betcha! I love being moved around - but wow - what an investment we hard working teachers make at each grade level! I always want my kids to have the best of what I can afford. I will also let you know I have loads more for second grade that I will start uploading, as I'm coaching a 2nd grade teacher this year. Anything specific you are looking for - let me know. I will make sure to price it affordably and get anything I can to you to make your awesome centers/stations engaging and less work for you! All the best, Jennifer

Jennifer Gates  (TpT Seller)
Hi wentzsandy - Great to hear from you - thanks for your question. I wish I had an opportunity to use it - I bought it with every intention of putting it right to use. Best laid plans, right?! I previously taught third grade but right after buying it, was given a position as the gifted teacher. In my 3rd grade room, I had intended to use it as an extension/activity center, but then was given only a couple of days to move into the new job and room. So, I never had a chance to get it set up or use it, and it's just been lying unused since then. It's an awesome resource but I moved into a former storage closet when I became the gifted teacher so there's no room for anything! I brought it back home and now figure - someone who can use it might as well have it, I have so much and have since become academic coach at another school. Hope this helps and answers your question.
