I do know why I used both. I wanted the students to understand that corners and vertices were the same, so I used both in the book. I will send you the book as soon as I can get back into school. We are closed for the cold. :)

I love this packet and used it last year. The kids really enjoyed it. My only question is why did you use "corners" instead of "vertices" and is there a way to have 2 options? I find myself having to white out and correct this since we are supposed to use vertices with the new Common Core vocabulary.

Hi Julie! I purchased your name tags, however the editable ones do not include the lines for the name portion. Is it possible to get this added? I teach kindergarten and my students need to see the lines to know how to write their names properly. Thank you!

I didn't add lines because I thought it would be difficult to type and match it up with the lines. If you send me your email, I would be happy to send you an editable version with lines.

I plan to add a file with 120 charts. However, it is very time consuming to change all of the files because of all the graphics. I probably won't have it done before school starts. I will email you the file you want if you email me (using the email on the credits page) and then when I finish them all, I will add it to the file. Thanks for asking! I love the idea of the 120 chart on the name tag!

There are 2 versions. One that has a date from June until August and another with no dates at the top. I made the one without the dates for schools that needed something other than June-August. I will be updating them (it is on the to-do list) to include a couple weeks of May dates this year because we get out in May as well. So you would be able to download an updated version then. :).

I have purchased the Common Core Geometry Fun with Shapes and have realized when I printed out the "My shape book" I realized that the common core standards for GA are different. The shapes we cover are rectangle, square, trapezoid, triangles, half circle and quarter circle. Would you be willing to change the book? I am happy to pay you to change it for me.

Hello,
I am writing you in regards to the Teacher Appreciation Jack Pot. I made a huge error. I was so excited on Sunday I spent hours and hours on a very slow computer going to every site that participated. I might have looked around a bit and became a follower. I was so inspired by all of you bloggers. Anyways, I went to every single site and added the TPA Freebie to my wishlist because the computer I was on has a virus and was not cooperating. SSSLLLOOOWWW!!!! So I thought if I just add it to my wish list on Monday morning I will download them on my school computer where I do all or most of my school work anyway. I was so excited I woke up super early so I could get to school and download them. Come to find out you had to pay for them. I wanted to cry. I emailed tpt and when they finally got back to me they said unfortunately there was nothing they could do. I was suppose to download them. I don’t recall ever reading that anywhere but I am very new to all of this. They said I had to email each one of you individually. Yes, then and there I just about started to cry. I had 120 items I added to my wishlist. I was on the computer all day Sunday doing this.
I am just wondering if you would be so kind to email or what ever you have to do so that I can download your freebie. I thought I would try! Thank you for your creative inspiring blog!!

Hi,

I just found you through Tpt and now I am a new follower

I would love for you to visit my blog and follow me too

ON Tpt you asked for suggestions for a blog

I would look into changing the layout of your blog. It is off centered and move your followers button closer to the top so that it will be easier to find.

It looks like you have your widgets at the bottom of the page if you move them to the side they will do wonders

I also do a blog feature on my blog every week and that might help you bring more attention to your blog

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Teaching has always been in my heart. I have been teaching for the past 18 years and have experience in teaching grades 1-5. I have taught multi-age and looping classrooms as well as traditional classes. I have been lucky that 15 years of my experience has included first grade which is my first love! I am a member of the International Society of Technology Education and a Promethean Board user.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that every child should be taught at a level that will ensure their greatest success. I believe in differenciated, small group instruction and the use of technology to enhance student engagement and learning. Most of my lessons include some kind of engaging hook or hands on activity. My classroom is child-centered and I am working on learning and integrating the Core Curriculum into all my lessons.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a B.S. from Martin Luther College and Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from National Louis University. I am a member of the International Society of Technology Education. I have taken many post Master's classes and workshops in differenciation, technology, and standards based education.
