Carrie R. re: Ducks Literacy Unit-Common Core
I love your products! Just wondering how you run your daily five or if you can tell me where to find a post you explain it all in? How long do you run your stations? Do you have the sorts each week on your post for sale that I see in your weekly lesson plans as a station? What do the students do if they finish early? Do you have a daily lesson plan to see how you run a typical day in your room to fit it all in? I know I have asked so much and I do appreciate you taking time to help me out. I hope you do not mind. Thanks again

Here is a link to my centers:
http://www.kindertrips.blogspot.com/p/centers.html
My centers are about 45 minutes to 1 hour. During that time the students rotate through:
10-15 minutes small group
10-15 minutes computer
20-30 minutes one center
I plan to make the sorts soon. I already have one for alphabet letters/sounds.
The centers post will tell you what they do when they finish the must-do.
My daily lesson plan outline is posted on my blog:
http://www.kindertrips.blogspot.com/2013/07/lesson-plans.html
I do not teach a science or social studies time, it is integrated with reading, writing and some math.

Nancy G. re: Grassland Baby Animals Literacy Unit-Common Core
Great job with this unit! I'm excited to start using it. When I was looking through the unit, I noticed a couple of things that need to be fixed. On page 8, the zebra foal is placed a little too high...its ears are overlapping the elephant calf's toes. On page 120, the image of the giraffe calf did not download correctly. On my copy, I have a red x with a message saying, "The image cannot be displayed. Your computer may not have enough memory to open the image,
or the image may have been corrupted. Restart your computer, and then open the file again. If the red x still appears, you may have to delete the image and then insert it again." I already tried restarting my computer, but I still have the same message.

Thanks for fixing these things! I look forward to hearing from you so that I can start preparing materials.

Hi Jen,
Back to check on the paper choices you shared awhile ago (writing center post)-I asked you about getting a copy of them and you said you would write back?

Where do youget the picture cards for your pocket chart center? The ones that students use to fill in the sentence. I see the ________. The cards have a picture, letter of the week focus (r words), and the word on them.

Will you keep posting your morning work tub ideas as you change out the activities? Love this idea!

Do you have a copy of your weekly plans to share so we can see how you run and the activities you do throughout the week? I see Dee Dee Wills, Growing Kinders post theirs-would you mnd sharing?

Thanks so... much once again!!!

Hi. Sorry to write to you here with these ?'s but not getting a response through emailing you. I notice you have centers for each unit that I bought-how do you run these centers? I have looked at your blog and see you did daily 5 with choices at each area (reading=write the room, detective, etc.), I also see centers that have must do's and then 2 more choices. How are you running your stations at this time? Can you give me an idea? What does the workboard look like for your centers at this time? I see in the past you had names that told them what they could do at each area when they visited and they rotated every 15min. I have all of your bundles and materials and follow your blog but not sure what your center time looks like for using the materials and would love to hear back from you. Thanks for all the work put into these literacy units!!

I am interested in purchasing the bundles you have for the Journeys kindergarten program. My school purchased the 2014 common core edition. Do your bundles include all the sight words from the 2014 edition? My school also uses D'Nealian handwriting. I am trying to avoid activities that require the children to trace/write in a font that is not D'Nealian. Would I be able to use most of your activities? Thanks so much!

Yes, the sight words are the same ones from the basal in the same order. I do not have the packets in the D'Nealian print through-some of the writing prompts and one of the centers are in a traceable font. I would say out of each packet that would account for 3-4 pages.

You are doing it the correct way. Once I find out which size and font is the best, they I just copy that text box and use it for every name tag, then I can just type the different name. So go ahead and type a name the size and font you want, then copy the text box with the text it in and paste it, then drag it to the next name tag. When you are on a totally different page it, just select paste.

Buyer re: Number Ten Frames 0 to 20 - Polka Dots in Blue
I used the blue ten frame posters and they were great!
Can you do word wall letters using blue? I will pay to download. It can be chevron but I would like it in blue with Zaner Bloser handwriting. Like Aa. Bb Thanks

I have a couple of word walls and they are all editable in brights and primary colors. I also have a popcorn word wall that is the one I use in my room. Just search my store for word walls.

If you do not follow the basal comprehension skill then---Does each unit focus on a different comprehension skill? What is the order of the comprehension skills that you follow? Do your story maps and webs with the unit follow your order?

No, they are story maps (characters, setting, problem, solution) for literature and webs to fill in for informational text. If there is a story that had good examples for sequence then I included a page for it or listed other ideas. I embed the comprehension skills in my lesson through questioning and discussions.
This seller has the skills you are looking for-http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Journeys-Through-the-YearKindergarten-Edition-757364

Carrie R. re: We Like School! Literacy Unit and Literacy Centers
How many days with this unit last? Do you have comprehension standards that are covered or focused on in this unit (EX: retell, predicting, etc.)?

I have two written responses for the 2 books that are taught that week. Most of the time there is a story map for literature stories or a web for recalling information in an informational text. I have several writing papers that you could use with writing prompts for the books. I did not follow the comprehension skills in the basal for the stories. I use the story maps and webs as follow-ups everyday. The centers will last all week and the writing activities are used daily-so there are 2-3 activities or more for some units. It depends on how many days you teach the books.
Thank you!

I downloaded your Student Calendar Notebook for last year. Are you going to be posting one this year? It was exactly what I was looking for! Thanks so much!

I won't be using it this year so I did not make one. I am so sorry, but I have seen several different ones on TpT.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching since 1993 and I am currently a kindergarten teacher. I have taught first grade for 8 years and kindergarten for 7 years. I have helped to write the curriculum for kindergarten and first grade for our school system (1997-1999) and I have mentored new teachers and many university students who are now teaching! I was a member of our local university's TIPS (Theory into Practice) group. This group was a team of 7 local teachers that worked with an early childhood professor and provided field experiences for students who were enrolled in early childhood classes. We would visit their class and assist with teaching some of the classes.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I enjoy creating hands-on materials for my students to use at centers. I like to try new activities and change things often!
