Hey Katie. I love your Morning Work packs. I bought Pack 1 and Pack 2.
I have been using Pack 2 since January. I wanted to plan ahead for the beginning of the year next year, and went to print off Pack 1, and I am unable to open the file. I had no problems opening Pack 2. Any suggestions??
Thank you

Hello,

I was wondering if there was a way these could be downloaded in a word document. I love them, but I would like to edit the addition facts so they follow how we teach them to the students. We tend to do one fact (all +1's) one week and so on.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi,

I purchased the first grade morning work pack and I am unable to open it. I have the adobe program, so I don't think that is the issue. The message box said it may have been emailed to me incorrectly so the decoding is effected. However, right now I cannot open any files. Is there another way you could send it to me?

Your morning work packs are incredibly helpful!! I love the format! I used them in kindergarten and now I will be teaching first grade this year. A few weeks ago I purchased the first grade packs and I, too, am wondering if you will be adding the dotted lines for the morning message. Please let me know!

Hi Katie!
I love the morning work packets. I actually bought both packs for first grade! I noticed that your kindergarten packs have the dotted line for the morning message part. I know this is a huge thing to ask, but is there any way you could make those lines available for the first grade packs? I'd even be happy to do it myself if you sent me an editable version - ? Thanks for considering!

Do you have this is word format...just to be able to change the date and I would like to type in a morning message that they copy or trace over so I don't have to write it on the board every morning????? I love this product....
July 21, 2013 Report inappropriate comment

Katie Pipkin  (TpT Seller)
Unfortunately I cannot provide this product in Word format due to the "terms of use" I agreed to for the clip art I purchased for the product. The artist requires that all clip art be "nailed down" in PDF format so that it cannot be removed from the document. One suggestion would be this: Print one page of the morning work you would like to use. Use a medium-toned highlighter (like a green or blue one) to neatly write the morning message on your original. Then, make copies for your class using that paper. The morning message will come out light gray on their copies and you can have the children trace over that. That is what I do in the beginning of the year and it works very nicely, especially if I model tracing the letters a few times!

Good morning! I am a first grade teacher, formerly PK teacher. I just finished my masters in May (yea!) with a degree in Mind, Brain and Education – a subfield of education. The first program was started at Harvard by Howard Gardner and Kurt Fisher (if you haven’t read any of Kurt Fisher’s work on Skill Theory and you are interested in the cognitive processes involved in learning, you must read his work!)

Cut to the chase. When I moved up from PK to 1st I was shocked by my students’ lack of number sense. I spent an entire year and all last summer trying to figure out what was missing. In Nov I attended a workshop that on number sense. When I heard the presentation I recognized all the “big” names of the research I had been investigating. The workshop was a training session for an iPad app (Native Numbers). It seemed like a valid, robust app, but I am a skeptic and had to know: would this really work.

I am here to tell you that with the first skill set I saw every cognitive model of learning embedded in this app. I also realized that this app is more than a learning tool; it has built in formative and summative assessment as it is adaptive and levels up and down based on student performance and leads to mastery.

Now I am on a “mission” – everything we read tells us our students are lacking number sense. I believe this app is a fabulous tool to remediate those deficits. I have no vested interest in this app except that I am one of those people that has to solve problems and when I think I have found possible answers, I have to share that with others. Our kids are too important not to share---which is why I love reading blogs! I am asking for teachers to simply read the research and then try out the app and give me feedback---or give the feedback yourself to the developers. I am that convinced. I am not a salesman and I feel quite strange in this new role I have taken upon myself…but I have nothing to lose, or gain, except knowing that maybe we can have an enormous impact on our students!

If you have any questions, please e-mail me at tatergraderswife@yahoo.com Check out the app at www.nativebrain.com – you can find the background of the developers and read about the research behind the app. You can also watch a video on that site or go to these YouTube links:

You will not be able to edit the file as it is a PDF. Unfortunately, I cannot modify the file as the pages are numerous and it would be incredibly time-consuming. You could always have them write their name as the morning message every day. If the "Write the morning message." line bothers you or if you think it may confuse your students, you could always white that out before copying and then give your students oral instructions on what to do with the dotted lines. I actually sometimes just had my class write the same letter over and over in that section for handwriting practice. If you are teaching a small class, you could also write their names for them ahead of time using a light highlighter and have them trace! Sorry I could not be more help!

Install that program, and then try opening it.

The only thing I can think of is that you do not have a program to view PDFs. Do you have Adobe Reader installed on your computer? If not, you can get it for free here:

http://get.adobe.com/reader/

Another thing you could try is deleting and then downloading the file again. Something might have gone wrong during the download process. To download something you've already purchased again, click on the "My TPT" tab at the top of your page and then click "My Purchases" you should have the option to download it again.

If that doesn't work, I would contact the TPT tech team!

Unfortunately, I cannot email this file because it is a VERY large file and exceeds my mail server's file limit. I have tried for people in the past, it does not work.

You probably need an unzipping program to unzip the zip file. Most newer computers come with an upzipping program, but some may not have one. Once the file is unzipped, you will have full access to the PDF. I recommend 7-Zip. It is free and it will open your file for you. You can download it here: http://www.7-zip.org/.

Unfortunately, my morning work packs are not. This is due to the clip art agreement for the clip art I used. The clip art artists do not like their work to be included in editable files because then people can just right click and have access to their clip art. They have to be "nailed down" in PDF format.

Hello Katie! I am a retired teacher, working as a part time IA in a kindergarten class. I love my job! I have been working with a student who is reading at a high first grade or low second grade reading level. His vocab is great, comprehension really not bad at all, however he has a very low attention span....typical boy, I guess! His mom is concerned that he may be ADHD....he really can't sit still at all. Anyway, I'd love to find some activities that will keep him motivated and inspired, other than just websites on the computer. Any ideas for me? I've searched through TPT, but haven't found what I need. Thanks so much for any help!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Elementary Education in 2007. I later attained a master's degree in Library Media. I've been teaching for 5 years (1 year 1st grade, 1 year 2nd grade, 3 in kindergarten).

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that young children learn best through play and hands-on experience. My instruction tends to be a balance of play/exploration and the drill that is mandated by our state. I tend to relate most subject areas to nature study and science because it is something I enjoy. Children naturally gravitate towards animals and nature and I love to foster their curiosity!
