Hi Laura,

I am a HUGE fan of yours! I love your ideas and resources and sometimes wish I taught a higher grade so I could use everything you offer.
I am interested in purchasing your book clubs slide show package, but was wondering if it would be appropriate for second grade? I am eager to do something new with them for the last few months of school.

Thanks!

Hi! I think you would find a lot of value in it, but if you purchase the digital version and you don't think it's helpful, just email your receipt to me and I'll let you choose some other products of equal value. I've been creating more items that can be used in 2nd grade so I think you would be able to find something you could use. I do have a free 5-minute video about it so be sure you watch that first. Here's a link to where you can watch the video: http://www.lauracandler.com/bookclubs.php

Hi Laura,

I teach grade 3,4, & 5 and just LOVE your collaborative boards on pinterest! I was looking for a way to contact you about possibly joining them (if you'll have me). I just starting following (and would love to join) Literacy Resources, Math Resources, Cooperative Learning Resources, Science Resources, Social Studies Resources, & Center and Small Group Resources.

Thanks so much!

Thanks for getting back to me Laura. I'll check it out :)

Right now my collaborative boards are not open to other collaborators. I have very strict guidelines for my collaborators and I require all pinners to apply to my boards and agree to those guidelines. However, I don't have time to review the applications right now so I'm not opening my boards. I would suggest that if you want to learn some really effective strategies for Pinterest you sign up for the Teaching Blog Traffic School. Good luck!

Hello Laura. My question is: How do you create such colorful and wonderful presentations and books for teachers to use? I am new to this site but I have lots of great lesson plans that I would love to share with others. I just don't know how to make them colorful and creative. I can type a word document and that's about it. But I have been told by many other teachers that I should share some of the big ideas that I have. So I thought I would ask the best on how to put something attractive together for others to have.

Laura Candler  (TpT Seller)
I mostly learned by watching what others are doing and being inspired by new design ideas. I don't copy anyone else, but seeing the beautiful products being created has motivated me. Also, I pay quite a bit for all of the lovely clipart and that's a key factor. However, I can write it off on my taxes since I'm in business. There's a course called Teaching Blog Traffic School that can teach you how to market your items after you make them, but I don't think it teaches you how to make them. Also, I will be presenting a session at the TpT conference called Creating A+ Teacher Resources so maybe you can come to the conference and attend the session!

I'm sorry you are having problems. These books are "zipped" together in a file and you have to unzip them to access the files. Most computers have a program for unzipping files. When you try to open the file, you should see where it says to "extract" the files which just means to unzip them. If you still have problems, please contact the TpT support team using the Help link at the top of the TpT page. I know that will be able to assist you. Thanks for purchasing the books!

That board is not currently open to collaborators. It may be open in the future, but I do have very strict guidelines that my collaborators must follow. One of them is that you have to pin at least 4 free items or interesting blog posts for each product and another is that you have to include a $ sign in every product description. I'm actually working on a product with tips for Pinterest collaborators, so be sure you are following me if you are interested in joining up in the future. That product will have information for those who are interested in becoming a collaborator on one of my boards.

I bought this and I love it! I want to share it with my teaching team, but I did not purchase additional licenses at my time of purchase. I thought I could go back in and buy them. Every time I try to add them, it adds the original cost to the site license. Any suggestions?

Thanks for being willing to pay for extra licenses. I believe you have to go to your account and find the item under My Purchases. Then you should see the option to add additional licenses there. I also have a school site license plan for all of those packs, k-5. Contact the TpT help team if this doesn't work.

I just downloaded it and the calling cards are on pages 6 through 12. If those cards are blank it sounds like a technical issue. Have you updated Adobe Acrobat lately? Can you try downloading them to a different computer to see if you have the same problem? Or try downloading a new version - maybe the one you got was corrupt.

Hi Laura!

I am a student teacher in NY and I am beginning to work on my edTPA (a new NYS certification portfolio based exam) and tasks 1-3 are on literacy. Because I am student teaching in a 6th grade social studies class, I need to integrate SS with ELA and this seems to be a great packet to do so. My question is, do biographies still qualify for common core reading standards, or is that solely fictional characters? Thanks!

Best,
John

You can research the answer to that question on the Common Core website here: http://www.corestandards.org. I'm not 100% familiar with the 6th grade Common Core, so I don't want to answer for you. Check with your supervising teacher, too. I don't know what packet you mean because your question does not appear to be tied to a product. Good luck!

I would love this file for my students, but I am big on two things- Copyright laws and Color Copies :) Do you still have this? One page has: Franctions, Money, Lines, Measurement
The other has: 100 Chart, Key Words, Place Value, Types of Triangles, Multiplication and Polygons.

I have quite a few 5th graders that do not know their facts and lack multiplication fluency. However, there is such a demand with all of the other concepts that need to be taught, that I fear I won't have time to cover everything in a well-taught manner. Do you have any suggestions? Could I purchase this and truly only use it for approximately 15 minutes each day during math? But, would it prove to be successful if I do it that way? Thanks so much! I'm truly at a loss right now.

That's what I did and I was a 5th grade teacher. I used the Mastering Math Facts system described in the book and not the introductory lessons in Chapter 1. Those take more than 15 minutes but 5th graders shouldn't need them. I will make a deal with you. If you buy the book, try the program, and don't find it to be useful, I will work with TpT to refund your money or I'll allow you to choose $20 worth of other materials from my store for free. Would that work? However, I would want you to try it for at least a month before you decide. Also, be sure to watch the webinar I have on my website where I explain how to do the program.

When did you download your copy? I made that correction a few days ago. Try downloading it again. If you still see the problem, let me know. Email me at contact@lauracandler.com. Thanks!

Laura,

I am a teacher of 6 years who is getting into the resource-sharing world and had a few questions.
What is your inspiration for sharing your lessons for free?
What has kept you teaching for 30 years?

Thanks,
Leah

It was free because I hit 200,000 Facebook followers on that day! I announced in advance on Facebook and on my Corkboard Connections blog. Follow me on Facebook and my blog and you'll find out about the next item I give away for free! www.facebook.com/teachingresources and www.corkboardconnections.com

Do you by chance have a book that has all grade levels of the talking sticks book discussions? I teach a gifted pullout, and serve four different grade levels. I was just trying to avoid having to buy them one by one if there's a "set." thanks :)

No, I don't have a set. If I did, it would have K - 5 and you probably wouldn't want them all anyway. I thought about creating a combo set and I might do that at some point, but I haven't yet done so. Thanks!

Buyer re: Talking Sticks Book Discussion (5th Grade CCSS Aligned)
Did you know that there is an error in the talking sticks grade 5 pack? The first page of black and white questions for literature has the same question on it 5 times. That question also appears on the Informational text questions page.

What? I had no idea! How could this be true when so many people have downloaded it and no one has said anything. I just took a look and you are correct. I'm so shocked! I corrected it so you can download a new file with the corrections. The only page that had errors was page 6 because the Informational Text page was supposed to have that question, too. Please email me at contact@lauracandler.com and I'll send you something for free for bringing this to my attention. Let me know any single item you would like up to $20 in value. I really appreciate this! Thanks!

Thanks Laura - I understand the problems. We have dollars and cents in Australia - we have 5c, 10c, 20c and 50 c coins. Unfortunately, we don't have nick names for them. I'm grateful for your great resources so when there's only one or 2 money questions, then I can come up with my own questions. We do have metric measurements (litres, kilometres etc).

Thanks for understanding. The Daily Math Puzzler books come with a template that you can modify with your own problems, so that might be something to look into. I have international versions for Levels A and B but not C and D. I hope to have them one day.

Buyer re: FREE Problem Solving Assessments (International Version)
Hi Laura - I noticed that on your freebie International Problem Solving Assessments, Pretest level A No. 2, you still refer to dimes, quarters and pennies. I'm in Australia and that can cause problems with younger students. Did you do this for a reason? Thanks Trish

I had some Canadian teachers review it, and no one mentioned that. I debated even trying to create an "international" version because I realized that nothing can be truly International. Every country is different. It was tough figuring out how to handle that.

I bought and attempted to download Math Centers for Middle Grades and I was not able to. It stated that the file is damaged and cannot be repaired. Can anyone assist?

Thanks for your purchase, and I'm sorry that you are having a problem. I'm sure it's just a glitch because it's been downloaded hundreds of times with no problem. First, go to your account on TpT and try to download it again. If you have problems again, contact the TpT help team. I'm sure they will assist you.

Do you take purchase orders from schools? My assistant principal is asking. Thank you! Amanda Lindsay

Hi!
Yes, I do, but they have to be for at least $100. I have site licenses that I sell to schools so they can upload the items directly to their servers, or if one teacher is ordering more than $100 worth they can use a PO. Go to www.lauracandler.com and search for the ordering information page. TeachersPayTeachers also accepts purchase orders and their minimum is $20. Apparently if you have an order for more than $20, you will see the purchase order option as one of your choices.

Music in the Middle with Mr D
Hello! I love your products!

I joined TPT in August, and I am writing to see if you might be willing to join my new middle school board called "Great Ideas for Middle School" and post your products on it. You can post as many as you like.

I would greatly appreciate your support.

If you decide to do so, please follow the board and send me your email address. I will add you!

Thank you very much for your consideration!

Thanks for the offer, but I don't join collaborative boards unless they are carefully monitored and they have strict guidelines for how people can post. There's a whole art to Pinterest, and it's important for me to be on boards that follow my philosophy of pinning. If you want me to send you a link to my guidelines, I'll be happy to do that. You could put a lot of time into Pinterest without seeing a big benefit if you are not using long-term strategies to build a following. I don't want to tell you how to pin on your own boards, but you might be interested in seeing what's worked for me and many others. Email me at lauracandler@att.net if you are interested in seeing the guidelines.
