Buyer re: DEMONSTRATIVE BINGO - teach emotions enjoyably!
I just purchased the emotion bingo and did not receive the emotion picture cards, it only had many BINGO cards with the emotion words on them. Please let me know how I can receive the pictures. If not available, please let me know how I can get a refund. Thank you.

PLEASE read the directions. There are no picture cards involved. Students pick a card, then act out or tell a story that appropriately illustrates that emotion. If done well, according to a non-playing supervisor, the player marks the square on their bingo card. Other players, in turn, must each say something different to empathize, i.e. “I am so sorry you’re depressed. Do you want to talk about it?”, or “When you’re depressed, it makes me feel sad too”, or “That’s too bad you’re depressed, but tomorrow is another day”, etc. Each player who gives an appropriate response (according to the supervisor) gets to mark that square, too! The next player pulls a card from the bag, and the game continues in the same manner…. until someone gets BINGO!

I hope this clarifies your question.

Hi,

I just purchased this product. Is it possible to get the pictures that are shown in the preview? I noticed several others emailed you, so I was hoping to do the same. :)

Thanks!

Cassandra Tallant  (TpT Seller) re: Commas: "DESPISE" them to learn them!
Hi,

I am looking for an easy and effective way to teach commas. Does this method have students list the word despise to help them remember comma rules? Like D stands for dates, dialogue, etc.?

Yes, it uses a simple, easy to remember mnemonic, but more importantly, it gives students "tricks" for reasons to insert a comma. From now on, they should never insert a comma without knowing the reason for it.

Please read other comments, and you'll see that it's received favorable reviews
Thanks for your question!

Similar to walkeran, I was hoping that the thumbnails or slides came along with it. I guess I thought that was what I was purchasing since that is the pictures that show up with the product. Again similar to walkeran, did I miss something?

Please email me at TransitionSuccess@gmail.com and I will send thumbnails to you.

Thanks for your purchase-- I think you'll like it!

I just purchased this product, and was disappointed that the slides (thumbnails) didn't come with it. Did I miss part of the download?

Thank you

It looks like you were going to add some more info to this lesson once your schedule cleared up. Before purchasing, I wanted to see if you had already added the material. Thank you!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have worked with students with learning disabilities since 1975, concentrating on transition to college for high school students with LD/ADD since 1975. I served as a college Learning Specialist for 13 years during which I saw frequent and unnecessary failure among this cohort. As a result, I have become passionate about PROACTIVELY teaching special education students in high school (and their parents) how to do all they can to set themselves for college success prior to crossing the threshold. Started a subscription list for parents of high school students with learning differences at http://www.conquercollegewithld.com

MY TEACHING STYLE

Multimodal

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Published many articles on unique teaching strategies, some of them award winners, in Teaching for Success, a journal for instructors in high education.
