Are you coming out with a winter version of your sentences and paragraphs pack? My students loved the fall pack. I had to work with them a lot on sentence order. I was hoping they would become more independent with more practice with them. Thanks!

Hi there, I just tried it and it downloaded for me. Sometimes you need to update your Adobe and that usually works. If you'd like you could leave me your e-mail address here and I could send the pack to you. So sorry that you're having trouble.

Ok, I just printed them now and they were both fine. I'm thinking that maybe you need to update your Adobe Reader to the most recent version, that could be the problem. That's happened to me before where something did not print out properly and I updated Adobe and it was fine after. Did you want to try that and let me know how it goes?

Hi!I love your set of rules---they "fit" perfectly in my classroom! The only problem---I tried to print the "Listen when others are speaking" poster, 3 times, and the words always cut off on the top line. Not sure if I am the only one with this problem, but would you please help me out? Any ideas? Thoughts?

Hi, Leslie!

Just thought you'd like a heads up... I just got the email about your short u product. On the story thumbnail (cute idea, by the way!), "Bud" changes to "Ed" midway through the story. Grrr, I've made that same kind of "not changing it" mistake more than once on my own resources! :) Hope this saves you some customer aggravation!
Have a great weekend!

Thanks so much Linda:) I just re-uploaded it and it looks OK. It's weird because yesterday when I posted it, the preview file was the short o for the short u even though it showed as the short u preview on the edit page. Not sure what was up with that.
Thanks again. I really appreciate you telling me.

Thanks!

Hi Leslie,
I have been using your Super Deluxe Math Pack although not in the order you present it. When I gave my class the problem on page 214 (the one with the 100's chart and trying to guess what the ? is) my students noticed an error -- you have 90 written in the box that is for 91. I am hoping you can fix it for next year.
Thanks for the great problem solving package. Erin

Erin:) Thanks so much for telling me, my kids found it too and I kept forgetting to go back in and correct it. Anyway, just re-uploaded it and the 91 is in the right spot. Thanks again, I appreciate you letting me know.

Buyer re: Tacky the Penguin - Totally Tacky Literacy Activities
Is there an actual Lesson plan that goes along with these activities?
April 18, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Leslie Hope
Leslie Hope  (TpT Seller)
There is not a step by step plan in the packet, but the activities are meant to be used as a stepping off point from your lesson. So, the first day, after you read the story, you brainstorm, as a class, adjectives to describe Tacky, then your students do this activity individually. From there, I included a retell of the story - storyboard style, which you could also start with. I revisit the story a day later and have my students do a response - favourite part, which is included in the packet. Finally there is a poem pattern included and a center activity, which is meant to help with the poem. I also included a Tacky mini book, which I give to each of my students as a fun, extra activity that they can work on in their spare time. Hope that helps.

Hi Leslie,
I have a male student, a First Grader who is struggling with learning Sight Words. He loves baseball. I just saw your baseball themed Math centers. I was wondering if you could create a baseball diamond with your ball players at each base. The base could be used for him to put his sight words cards as he reads them, advancing and making a home run each time he reads four correctly. Could you have blank diamonds for me to write his individual sight words in? I think he would respond to this as he loves the game. I would definitely buy it and hopefully others could see that it would reach one of their struggling readers also.

Buyer re: Super Deluxe Math Pack: A Problem a Day for 200 days {40 weeks}
Hello Leslie..I just purchased your Super Deluxe Math Pack: A Problem a Day for 200 Days. I absolutely LOVE it! I would like to do mine a little different since I am not starting at the beginning of the year with it. Instead of doing binders, I am going to make weekly packets. So, I would like to know if you could make an editable page that I can change the date on from week to week. For instance instead of the page saying Week 9, I would like it to say Week of _____. Then I would type the date in each week. I would also like a place for the student's to write their name on the page. I would be glad to pay you for your work. Thanks so much, Donna

To answer your quesiton... Hello Leslie and thank you so much for your question! I actually kept the font very basic because I wanted people to create their own with the blank ones I made for the set. The font is Arial and in Bold.

Hope that helps!!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 20 years. I started out in 1st, then 2nd, Kindergarten for a few years and then Grade 3. I am now happily back in 1st grade, where I hope to stay. I love 1st grade - there is never a dull moment.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am constantly searching for new and innovative ways for kids to learn, which is why I love Teachers Pay Teachers so much. Let's face it: teachers often get their best ideas from other teachers. I am always trying to improve what I do!
