Giselle M. re: K-1 Common Core Writing Standards: A Printable & Template Collection
Hello Larissa,
Yes. I would love to see something for 2 to 3grade and 3grade only. My son Aaron is Autistic and your unit help him so much.He is a very visual kid and to be able to draw and transfer it into the writing was quite a acccomplishment for him. Hope you can come with a very unique unit for kids Unique as my Aaron. Thank you, Giselle

Hi Giselle,
Thank you very much for your nice comment. I am happy to hear it helped your son. I developed them for my ELL students in particular, whom also need quite a bit of visual support. I would really like to see a copy of something Aaron wrote using my resource if you would not mind sharing? Which item are you mostly interested in for 2/3 grades? (the Language Within Writing or the Printable/Template Collection?) Thank you again.

No, sorry. I have not attempted to make it for other grades yet. Is this something you would be interested in if I can figure out a way to put something together?

The home page is just that, the TPT home page. If you scroll down you will see different stores which are featured. The stores are rotated constantly so that anyone selling on TPT gets an opportunity to be seen. I've only seen mine once as the visit must coordinate with when your store is featured.

As for the copyright, I can't remember if your products all had that or not. I generally mention this fact to all newbiew since this is an important item that is often omitted.

If I can be of any more help to you, just let me know.

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: K-1 Book Review Sample for Common Core Writing Standard 1.1
I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebies. Here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.

Add some clipart to add color or just color some of your font to each resoruce. For some reason buyers like color on the original even though they may copy your product in black and white. Also, create a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers even if that resource is only one page long. You are competing with over 29,000 sellers so you want your products to stand out. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do? How? Etc.) List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.

Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Here is how you do that. Use the insert and go to the right. You should see symbols there. Insert the copyright symbol, your name and date. It should look something like this: © V. Rauch (Scipi), 2011 Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also number your pages.

Finally, make sure yor freebies represent the quality of products in your store. If the freebie isn't something a teacher can use or isn't unique or top notch, buyers will just move on to a different store. The primary grades have so-o-o-o many stores that you want to make sure your free item will catch the buyer's eye.

It is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below to gather some ideas.

Check out the Sellers Forum under Communication on your dashboard page. There are tons of ideas and helpful suggestions given by TPT veterans. The best of luck as you sell on TPT!

Hello Scipi,
Thank you for your note. I appreciate your time and have been to your store in the past, as well as read your comments on the forum. Did you find any particular product that did not have the copyright on each page? I always try to do that, and did not mean to skip any pages or products. If you found one, I'd appreciate knowing which one it is. Also, I have started to work on making nicer cover pages. Unfortunately, I haven't even been able to sell one the one resource I have with a nice cover page. I'm sure it takes patience, and I do thank you for your tips. One more question... you mentioned you saw my page on the TPT homepage, may I learn where that was? Thanks again.

Buyer re: Kindergarten/1st Grade Writers Workshop Curriculum Guide
Hi-

I am a 1st year K/1 teacher and just now finding your writers workshop curriculum. I would like to start this with my students ASAP. If I purchase would you be willing to tell me what I can leave out and/or condense to give my students the writing help the need? Is there a way to contact you directly?

Thank you!

Hi Allison,
I would be happy to do my best to help guide you through how to make this work with your kids! We can swap e-mail addresses if you would like to do so. We can start with you letting me know some about your writers' abilities and go from there. Just let me know what you decide. Thank you for your question and interest.

Is this aligned to the Common Core Standards?
December 14, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Larissa
Larissa  (TpT Seller)
Thank you for asking. No, it is not aligned to Common Core at this point. However, I do have a complete set of printables/templates I put together to address the Common Core. These are in my store and sold in small sets or one complete set. These do not follow the writers workshop format though. Please let me know if you have additional questions.

Common Core Connection  (TpT Seller) re: Kindergarten Writers Workshop Curriculum Calendar
Hi, I enjoyed your product. I was able to confidently give it a perfect rating. Thanks for sharing!

I just listed a new type of Sight Word PowerPoint for Kindergarten and First Grade. It is listed under First 50 Sight Words PowerPoint. It includes the words in isolation and within the context of sentences with picture support. I wondered if you might consider taking a look at the free 4 slide preview to see if it might be something you could use. Thanks! Anne Gardner

Can you tell me the difference between the Kindergarten/1st Grade Writers Workshop Curriculum Guide and the Daily Lesson Planning Guide for K-1 CCSS Writing Printable Collection

Thanks!

Larissa
Larissa  (TpT Seller)
Sure, thank you for asking Wendy. The Writers Workshop Curriculum Guide can stand alone as a year-long resource for teaching writers workshop. It gives you mini lesson ideas in an outline format for the year, broken down into units. The Daily Lesson PLanning Guide for K-1 CCSS Writing Printable Collection will only be helpful for you if you purchase my Common Core printable collections, that you can find broken down for standards 1-3, 5-6, and 7-8. Or, the full set of all of those standards (plus the daily lesson planning guide) is also available in my store. I hope this explains the difference. Please let me know if I haven't been clear or can help further explain. Thank you.

I will definitely provide feedback as my partner and I look at it more closely and try some things out. Do you have an estimated timeline for the second and third?
February 11, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Larissa
Larissa  (TpT Seller)
Hello, Maybe we can exchange e-mail addresses? Do you think TPT would allow that? I don't have an estimated time line yet. It just depends on how much time I can find to work on it. I would really like to have it all wrapped up by the time this school year is over. I don't plan on working on other grade levels besides K-1 right now. I hope the steering committee and you and your students find it helpful.

Thank you! I did purchase your packet for the first three Core standards. It is exactly what I am looking for. I will definitely be checking back for the rest! Will I be able to purchase the other two without having to purchase the first one again?

Larissa  (TpT Seller)
Yes, for sure. I will post the 2nd set of standards as one purchase. Then, the 3rd. And, finally... hopefully some sort of year-long guide to tie it all together. And, thank you very much for your purchase. I'm glad it is exactly what you're looking for!

Buyer re: Kindergarten/1st Grade Writers Workshop Curriculum Guide
I am looking for a first grade year long curriculum guide that covers all of the writing core standards. It doesn't necessarily need to tie in with the Calkins style of writer's workshop. I will continue to check in to see what you have available. Thank you!
February 8, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Larissa
Larissa  (TpT Seller)
That sounds exactly like what I'm working on! What I'm trying to do is develop a guide with printables for each of the three sections of core writing standards. (I've posted the first one... "text types and purposes.") After I finish the final two, my plan is to put together a year-long curriculum guide to incorporate everything I've put together. (not following Calkins.) Thank you and thanks for checking back in with me.

Hi! This is exactly what I am looking for. My only question is, does this line up with the Common Core most states have adopted?

Larissa
Larissa  (TpT Seller)
Hello, Unfortunately I made this guide before the Common Core came out. I have not yet made a year-long writing curriculum tied to the Common Core. However, it is my plan to work towards that. Are you looking to tie the Core Curriculum to the Calkins style of writers' workshop? Or, are you simply looking for a year-long curriculum guide that covers all of the writing Core Standards? If you happened to notice my other self-made product, it was developed from the first 3 Core standards. My plan is to continue developing materials like this to meet all of the K-1 writing standards, and then tie them all together for a year-long curriculum. Thank you for asking.
