Sevorah S. re: Addition of Integers Notes and Fun Activity Bundle
I found a few typos in this. On the "So, here's the deal" page, it should say, "They're the type that like to make..." It says "likes."

On "The monsters meet up in the closet" page, it should say, "Bummer Barry acts as a negative and Happy Harry is a positive." Happy Harry is shown as negative.

On the "Let's look at another example" page, 5 negative monsters plus two positive monsters should be three negative monsters. You have "positive" there.

On the "Solve these following problems" page, it should say "Solve the following problems." or "Solve these problems." and "Check THE monster that has more friends." (It says "Check that monster that has more friends."

Please let me know when these issues have been resolved. It's a little frustrating to pay for something and not be able to use it or correct the errors.

Thank you.

Buyer re: Least Common Multiple/Least Common Denominator Lesson Plan
Lisa, hi! Love your products, and I am very excited about your LCM packet. I never knew that you could find the LCM by using the factors of the numbers. Cool!! :) I did have a question for you, though. :) In the example that you gave for finding the LCM of 100 and 180, I am thinking that because 9 is not a prime number, that it would have to be broken down to 3 squared. Would that be right...just wondering if that maybe was a typo?

I hope that you will forgive me if it turns out that it isn't, and that I am just not quite understanding it yet...which is highly likely!! :) Sure hope your year is off to a great start! Thanks again for all the amazing things you share with us!!
Take care,

Hi Lisa. I purchased Middle School Math Lesson Plan, Fun Activities, Projects, Games from you recently. When I try to use Adobe to open it, there is an error on certain pages. One of the fonts (Jokerman) isn't compatible so some of the pages are blank. I am new to TPT so I am not sure what to do. I have Windows 7 and I use Internet Explorer 9. What do you recommend that I do in order to see all of the pages?

Hi Lisa,
I just purchased your "First Grade Common Core Bundle with the Standards & Objectives". I love the bundle-but I am having difficulty printing the document. Whenever I try to print, a box always comes up saying "Flattening", then after a few minutes another box tells me it was unable to print. It's not that I'm not tech savy-I'm competent on the computer. I've tried printing at school and home on 3 different computers and it still won't let me. I use a PC, did you use a mac? Could this be the problem? If I can't print it, it's really no use to me. Any suggestions?
Thanks so much for your assistance.

I am in need of 10-20 printable activities in the area of middle school Math. I really liked your:

Christmas/Holiday Simplifying Algebraic Expressions Coloring Activity,
Christmas/Holiday Find equation of line from Graph Coloring Activity, and
Thanksgiving or Fall Coloring Activity with Pythagorean Theorem.
These activities will be used as part of an online test prep resource for schools, so I will need to have a release which will allow my company to use them in this way. I can pay $10 per activity. Any worksheet/printable activities related to Functions, Inequalities, or Pythagorean Theorem would be great. If you drop me a note at jessica@usatestprep.com I can send you the agreement I need. We do not want exclusive use, of course; just the rights to edit and use the activities on our site( http://www.usatestprep.com/front/opportunities.php).

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am currently in my 6th year teaching in Salisbury Middle School. I've taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grades and did my teaching experience in elementary school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a somewhat new teacher, I have realized that I absolutely do not like textbooks. They hardly ever fit the standards we need to teach; therefore, I tend to create my own materials!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

WMDT Teacher of the Month

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My undergrad was done at Salisbury University. My major is Elementary Education with a minor in Mathematics. I studied at Walden University to gain my masters in Teacher Leadership.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

When I am not teaching, I spend my time with my family. I'm a newlywed with 2 dogs and 1 cat that take up most of my time! I enjoy teaching, especially with my "at-risk" students and living life to the fullest!
