Buyer re: ROMEO and JULIET ACT I-V WHOLE PLAY BUNDLE
How many questions are there in this bundle, require quotes to back them up?
February 14, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Jim Tuttle
Jim Tuttle  (TpT Seller)
Hi thanks for your interest. Buyers have kindly commented that there is a lot of evidence-based testing as Common Core requires in this bundle. There are many of these in different acts of the play.
I have included specific Answering Questions with a Quote activities in Act II, Act III, and Act IV. Also I have sprinkled this technique into other places in the play. There are also scavenger hunts for information.
I have also included

a) Act 1 Important Quotes Quiz and Worksheet

b) Act 2
Important Quotes Graphic Organizers:

There are two separate graphic organizers which highlight the important quotes from Scenes 1 and 2 (the balcony scene). The first contains eight of the most famous love quotes, mostly from scene 2. Students in pairs paraphrase and analyze the meaning of each quote and then determine the type of figurative language contained in each.

The second is an active reading graphic organizer which allows the students to find their own favorite quotes in the scenes 1 and 2
These are given to add variety and give the teacher options on how they would like present these scenes.

Act 5 Questions and Quotefalls Puzzles
These are 4 crossword type of puzzles where the students are given clues and must fill in the appropriate quotes. They love these.
It is really an extensive unit which took me more than a month to write. I am doing Romeo and Juliet now and am adding things as I go which you can download. I am working on more evidence-based tests.
I hope that this helps you.

Cheers

Jim

I was wondering at what point in Animal Farm did you intend the foreshadowing worksheet to be used?
January 30, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Jim Tuttle
Jim Tuttle  (TpT Seller)
Good question!!!! I use it at or near the end; if not many twists are given away. It is a good assessment activity, as the students discuss many of the major incidents and conflicts. You could use pieces of it earlier as well, but I save it until the end and put it on a test too. I hope this helps.

Hi Jim!

I was going to purchase your Romeo and Juliet Act I and II crossword puzzles, but happened to notice your comment on one of your reviews that says the Total Play Bundle includes a crossword for every Act. When I look at the listing for the bundle, I only see a crossword for I and II. Can you clarify for me?

Oh thanks, I have to fix that! There are Crosswords for each act. I will fix the write-up. Thanks again. There are also crosstoquotes for act V which are a lot of fun too.
I notice you don't seem so happy with the product. May I ask why and what you were looking for? Thanks

Thank you for your kind words. The PPT's are sold separately. I have included a link to my store. Also, tell you what, if you buy any three of them, I will send you the other two for free. Just let me know your E-mail address. It is more than a 50% saving as I calculate it I think the 3 would cost you $7.99 and the total are just South of $17. They include.

1) Animal Farm 7 Commandments PPT and Graphic Orgabizer $3

2) Animal Farm Propaganda PPT and Graphic Orgabizer $3

3) Animal Farm Symbolism of the Russian Revolution PPT and Crossword Puzzle I think that this also has a Graphic Organizer
$5,99

4) Animal Farm Project Ideas $1.99

5) Animal Farm Important Quotes PPT $ 3.00

Again thanks for your kind words.

Just click on the money amounts in the game board to get to the question. Then go to the next slide which is the answer slide. Then each answer slide has a little square in the bottom left that takes you back to the game board. It is easy. Let me know if there are any problems. Thanks for purchasing the game.

I saw your posting on the Seller's Forum so I downloaded and rated your freebie. I trust you will take some time to do the same for me. The only suggestion I have for your item is maybe using some form of numbering other than Roman Numerals. I'm not a big fan of them. Otherwise, this is a great tool for the classroom. Here is my freebie.

I would be interested in using some of your materials on my website universalhomeschool.com (this website is due to be released in August 2011). The site will mainly focus on teaching videos for children who are being homeschooled, or need the extra help. We will offer math, reading and writing. I started building this site about a year ago and during this time I have been creating videos, quizzes, worksheets and lesson plans. I originally wanted a site that would be available for free to parents and teachers. Unfortunately because of the cost of the hosting, development, materials, and other overheads having a free site would be impossible so I will be charging a yearly fee to have access to the site. This will be anywhere between $30 and $50.
Therefore I am asking you for permission to use your work on my website. I will pay for your materials, give you the credit, create a link to your page and give you free membership.
If you are not interested, that is fine I understand. Let me know if you would like to discuss another agreement.
Thanks

I am an African American woman who teaches Language Arts in Middle School. I find the illustration of Lebron James used in one of your writing activities offensive. I am sure you could have found a better picture of Lebron somewhere on the internet.

I think this is the second time you have written so you seem really upset about this. Really there was no offense intended. I am not an African American, but had a black roommate in college and spent three years of my life on the African Continent. This in no way excludes me from prejudice, but again I meant no offense by the caricature of LeBron. I hope you noticed that both of my examples were African Americans. Realize that caricatures are supposed to be funny. When I wrote the lesson I actually liked Lebron. That was before he trashed his hometown team!
Anyway, I will remove it, but I hope that you have not written off the lesson because of this issue. Anyway it may take a few days because I am in the middle of the term.

Yeah, I hadn't thought about that! It was an example letter to show the format. It came from an adult version of the Dear Abby lesson I used in ESL. Probably not appropriate for kids. You can use the format and do another.

However, "I liked the activity until.... What happened here?"

Raye Lynn, it is a free activity and I find your admonishing reply a little funny here? Isn't it a useful activity with a lot of thought put into it for nothing? How does this change the activity? What's happening here?

Fatema,
Thanks for your kind words. I cut and paste that part from one of my old ESL activities. Let me check if I have a worksheet. I will get back to you on this.
If your kids like this one, I have a bunch of writing activites. They are packaged individually, but I wiil bundle them soon. There is a 5 para essay role-plau and a Dear Abby Leter of Advice activity that my students think is the best.
Anyway I will get back to you.

Buyer
Dear James,

My name is Jack Dennison. I am the Editor-in-Chief of www.FunnelBrain.com, an educational website. I am writing to you because the quality of the work you have posted to PTP distinguishes you as a talented author. I am looking for teacher-authors to create custom study review materials for FunnelBrain (on a paid basis, of course).

These study materials would take the form of online flashcards, quizzes, and study guides for high school and college level courses, as well as for certain standardized exams such as the GMAT, the SAT or the GRE. We are also interested in lesson plans built around activities that can take place on www.FunnelBrain.com.

If you are interested in a paid writing assignment, please email me at jack@funnelbrain.com, and I will respond with details on the available assignments. In the meantime, please feel free to browse FunnelBrain.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Jack Dennison

Buyer re: Greek Mythology Bundle (Revised)
I have downloaded this bundle, but I am not finding lesson plans nor unit plans. What are the lesson plans and unit plans?

Rebekah,
Sorry about that. I guess it is mostly worksheets and activities. I think you will be happy with what you get though. If you would like anything else from my store let me know and I will send it to you.
A buyer should give you what he/she says so sorry about that. But I think there are about 34 files so I think it is pretty economical. Again though, if you want another item let me know. Sorry for the oversight.

I am working on it as we speak. I am a little busy because of school. I can post what I have if you want. When do you need it by? I have almost finished Chapter 6, 8, and 10. Are you interested in 1-5? If you buy that other one, I will work on 6-10 and get it done in a week or so. Are you just starting the book? I have the meat and bones of it and I could also post what I have.
Also check out the Important Quote Power Point. I am really excited about it.

Smart Chick  (TpT Seller) re: Greek Myth Jeopardy Game
Jim-- Can I change the questions in the jeopardy game once I purchase it? I have 4th and 5th graders and may need to replace some of the mythology information that is not appropriate to their age.

Smart Chick,
You may change anything you wish. It is in Power Point format and my kids (9th graders) really love it. In fact we will be doing Greek Myths again soon. So it is yours to kick, throw against the wall, or cast to the underworld LOL.
If you are interested I have a 25 file, "The Humongous Greek Myth Bundle," which is about everything you need to teach Greek Myths. If buyers buy it I send them other stuff that I have free via E-mail for free. This is stuff I did not create, but use. If you need anything else let me know
Thanks again
