Shibahn L. re: Partner Games for Your Class Word Wall
Not a question but just letting you know I was going to leave feedback but the form wasn't there to do so- this is exactly something I need for my word wall. That station was going nowhere fast and this will definitely help! Thank you for sharing!

How strange that the form wasn't there! It was so kind of you to leave your note here instead, Shibahn. I agree - the Word Wall activities can get kind of stale around this time of year. I'm so glad these games will help you pep things up again!

Your 'Word Wall/Secret Box' game is confusing. It says the players take turns filling in the box with words from the walls, then when they are all full you roll the dice and the number on the dice indicates which is the secret box, and then the person that put the word in the box wins??? Wouldn't both players have a word in the box that has the same number as the dice, since they took turns filling in the boxes until they were full? I'm confused

Both players are sharing one board, so only one player will have written the word in the winning box. I thought that it was clear from the list of what players would need for the game, but perhaps I need to go back and add something about "sharing" to clarify it.
Thanks for your question - hope that helps!

Buyer re: Programmable Game Boards, with Suggestions for Your Gr.2-3 Curriculum
Are these gameboards editable? . . . I mean, could I add text to the gameboards themselves or just customize the cards that go with the game? Just wondering!

Sorry, but they're not. Making an editable PDF isn't on my skills list yet. Maybe someday soon! ; ) What you can do is just print, laminate, and use a wipe-off pen to add whatever you need to both the boards and the cards.

Linda,

See you're busy working being snowed in! It is snowing right now and we have had 70 inches of snow already. The kids are playing right now out in the snow. I like your "Building Sentences: St. Patrick's Day" resource. I just download a "Water Photo Digital Papers for Commercial Use" and saw your resource.

70 inches - wow, that's hard to get my mind around! Our winter has been a rollercoaster of snow and cold, but being near the coast seems to have kept our totals much below most, only a bit over a foot over numerous snowfalls, with the biggest being about six inches. It's snowing right now, but the prediction is for only an inch or two.
Anne, I just looked at the preview and your water photos are lovely! Maybe you need to become the next Snowflake Bentley and start taking pictures of the crystals! :)

Kaitlin W. re: 100 Riddles for the Hundred Chart
Thanks for your response! I looked over the intermediate packet and that is probably too hard, but with reading both of your packets primary and intermediate, it has given me ideas of how to tweak it to make it work for my class! I have a high class this year, so it's a bit low for my class, but I am sure in the future with a different class, it will be the right fit. I am appreciate to have the ideas and on how to word such a problem. I can easily change the numbers. I really appreciate your willingness to send the other products. Thanks for your help!

No problem, Kaitlin. I'm glad you'll be able to adapt the riddles for your needs and use them.

Linda O. re: Decoding with Onset & Rime: I Know a Word Like That!
Hi Linda,
I am interested in purchasing this. I was wondering how the children play the game. Thanks, Linda lott@telus.net

Hi, Linda!
This game set includes a set of short vowel cards and coordinating game boards, and a set of long vowel word cards, also with six coordinating boards. In other words, each set has enough boards for six players to use it in your small groups.

Here are the directions, as printed in the download:

*In small group instruction: Give each student a card and a handful of tokens to use as covers. As you hold up a card, students read it aloud together and then look on their own boards for another word with the same rime. The first to cover all 8 words on his or her board wins. Shorter version: First to get 3 in a row wins.
* In a literacy center: This is a game for 2-4 players. Students need a set of tokens to use as board covers. To play, put all cards face down in a pile in the center of the playing area. The first player turns over the top card and checks his own board to find another word with the same rime. If he has a word, he says, “I know a word like that!”, says the 2 words aloud, and uses a token to cover the word on his board. He then puts the word card on a discard pile. If he doesn’t have a word with the same rime, he puts the card on the discard pile and play continues. The first player to cover all of the words on his or her card wins.

Thanks so much for asking this question... you've inspired me to go back and add some details to my product description!

I'm glad you like the Ladybug game!

Here are 2 more short vowel games at my store.

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Short-Vowel-CVC-Words-Blizzard-Boulevard-Game

Both of these games address all of the vowels. Your question has given me another item for my "to do" list - separate gameboards for each vowel. Thanks!

Buyer re: December Data Collection: Tallies and Graphs
I just came across your store. This seems like a great collection! I was wondering about the funny snowman graph. Is it based on a story? Thanks for any info.

What a good question, Shannon! I can see why you might think that, but the answer is actually "no". I just gave the snowmen random goofy names!
Here's the deal: You are hereby authorized to write the book. But when you get it published, I hope you'll include my graph in it! :)

Thanks!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm proud to have been a teacher for 26 years, with the majority of my experience being in first grade. I taught Reading Recovery for 5 years, and that experience impacted every day of my teaching since! For the last 10 years of my career, I enjoyed teaching a first grade literacy intervention class. It has also been my privilege to present various workshops on literacy topics at the local, state, and national level. I continue to present workshops to the parents of preschoolers about preparing for kindergarten. My goal is to ignite a passion for reading and writing in young learners.
