Angela Willis  (TpT Seller) re: 2nd Grade No Frills Common Core Math Practice Bundle - Single Topic Worksheets
How often are you updating this? Also will we get an email to re-downlaod if you do update it? Thank you!
March 31, 2014
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
I just update as I finish a new standard. On Mar 29 I added 2.MD.1 & 2.MD.5. Just yesterday I posted a product for 2.MD.9, but I don't think I'll have time to add that to the bundle until midweek.

When I update the file I check the box to "notify buyers that the file has been updated". I'm not sure if TpT sends an email or if you just see it in your account when you look at "My Purchases". It may depend on the email preferences you set.

Buyer re: 4 Corners Get to Know You "Game" Powerpoint
Hi I love the game! Quick question- if I buy the powerpoint on my own laptop, can I send it to myself so I can use it on my school computer? Or do I need to buy two licenses?
August 18, 2013
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
You can use it any way you like! =)
It is licensed to one teacher, not one machine.
August 18, 2013

NATASHIA F. re: 4 Corners Get to Know You "Game" Powerpoint
Is this editable so that I can change the questions or use the format in the future for other four corners games?
August 2, 2013
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
It wasn't designed to be an editable template - but if you're comfortable with PowerPoint - it is NOT password protected, so you could change the questions. Some of the answer choices are text grouped with a picture - so you would need to ungroup and re-do the animation.
You could try fooling with the preview file to make sure it is what you want.

All Things Algebra  (TpT Seller)
Hi Lisa,

I made the decision to revert my All Things Algebra board back to just a single board for me to post ideas I find for my classroom. It was getting so big and I really missed being able to quickly find a pin that I was interested in trying out. I may consider opening a collaborative board again down the road. I hope you understand!

How do I use a border to completely surround one page,and then type something in the middle?
April 3, 2013
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
These are meant to be a horizontal border or divider.....but some might fit together to make a frame if you rotate them 90 degrees, paste another one on top & slide to make the side longer by lining up the overlapping part.

You might rather use my digital paper freebie & put a white overlay on it:

Nope. Sorry.

Hi!

Do you know if this will work with the mimio board?

Thanks,

March 11, 2013
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
I don't know for sure, but I doubt it.

This file is a "flipchart" file made for "ActivInspire" software for the Promethean board. I also have the same activity as a "notebook" made with SMART technologies. But I would imagine mimio has their own software & file type. Sorry, I'm not familiar with it.

Lance M. re: Borders Bundle Make it cute!
I don't seem to have the correct programs to open the files, even after I extracted them. Is there any way I could get them in a word document?
February 28, 2013
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
Sorry it took so long to respond...I'm out of town at a conference.

I can easily email the original WORD files I used to make them -- the borders are grouped word objects.

The zipped file you're having trouble with all contains Jpegs of each border ---- which might be easier to work with if you're not used to dealing with WORD objects.

Let me know if you just want the original editable word file, or if you'd also like me to paste all the jpegs into WORD so you could copy, paste, & resize them like clipart.

Math to the Core  (TpT Seller) re: Editable Digital Paper FREEBIE- Pick your own colors!
When I click on a shape it doesn't group together. What am I doing wrong? I have a Mac. Thanks.
February 10, 2013
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
I'm not sure what the problem is. I just downloaded it & tried it myself. I made it on a mac, so that's not an issue.

When you click on a circle once - it actually selects the whole set that is grouped together ---- it looks like a big rectangle --- but it is really only 1 of every 3 circles within the rectangle.

If you click on a circle and click on a new color (in your drawing tools) you can see which circles are part of the group.

Is this making any sense?

Aww. Thanks. =) But n oooo. LOL

I don't even teach 3rd grade. I made the series for a friend that was overwhelmed by Common Core last year (and not very tech savy). And now she was moved to 5th grade!! ...so I AM working on some ppts for 5th grade math, but there won't be any more 3rd grade material.
There are tons of great 3rd grade TpT sellers here. I'm sure a good search will turn up something you'll love.

November 20, 2012

Is there any way to attach the document so you could see it? The symbols on the back are not like the picture which is why I know it is incorrect. They are tiny (about the size of a grain of rice and they have things like hearts, clocks, shamrocks, stars, etc.). There aren't any directions either...
I will try to check it on my PC to see if that works, but it should work either way since it's a PDF.
I'm a bit baffled.
October 21, 2012
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
That IS the symbols that are on the back........the DT & VT graphs that show the same motion have the same little symbol on the BACK.....a heart, clock, or triangle, etc. They are very small, so students don't notice them before they match them.

The graphs are the front (as shown in the 2nd thumbnail), the tiny symbols are on the back to check answers.

I thought the product description covered the directions:
Copy it double-sided and cut apart.

Buyer re: Borders Bundle Make it cute!
Hi Lisa. I purchased your borders. I would like to use them as page borders (all 4 sides) for my word documents. I am using Word 2010. Can you explain the best way to do this? Thank you!
October 6, 2012
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
Some of them will work well on all four sides.....but it will probably be difficult to line up corners for many of them.

Select the border by clicking on it.

In the "arrange" section of the "Drawing Tools Format" tab pick "behind text" in the drop down menu for "bring forward" .....so you can put it exactly where you want it without interfering with the words on the page.

Also in the "arrange" section, in the "Rotate" drop down menu pick "Rotate 90 degrees".

Since they are designed to go across a page, they won't be long enough for the sides. It would probably be best to overlap 2 sets, so that they line up exactly.
October 7, 2012

karen karagrozis  (TpT Seller) re: Borders Freebie - Make it cute!
how do you separate the borders for the page you want
September 2, 2012
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
I'm not sure I understand the question......if this doesn't answer it, try asking again! =)

You click on the border you want and COPY it (from edit menu or by right clicking) and then PASTE it where you want it in your WORD file or PowerPoint.

It gets a little more complicated if you want to customize colors.

Hi!! I love this very much and it will be very useful! But, each slide of the powerpoint has a graphic (pic) along the side, that could be distracting for my students, especially my special needs kids. Is there any way to get the slides without that graphic on them? Thank you so much. My email is billcris01@optonline.net, just in case you are able to send it to me!! Thanks again :)
August 18, 2012
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
Just got home from vacation & school starts tomorrow! I don't really have time to customize a freebie. Just go through and delete the side border on each slide and resave it.

Hello

I purchased some of your borders and would like to change the color. How do I change the color?
May 14, 2012
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
In the MS WORD file, click on the border to select it. On the drawing tools menu, click to â€œungroup the shapesâ€. Clicking just ONCE will still have some groups ----- this is probably what you want! If you keep clicking, it will ungroup THOSE groups too & youâ€™ll have a millions individual shapes each with a mind of itâ€™s own!! So click some where off to the side (to unselect everything) then on one of the colors youâ€™d like to change. If all goes well, ALL the red balls (or whatever) are still grouped together ---- just click a new color in the formatting pallet and they will all change! When youâ€™ve changed all the colors, select everything & GROUP it again.
If this doesnâ€™t makes sense or seem to work, post again & tell me what version of MS WORD you have. I could try to make a little instructional video!
If this doesnâ€™t make sense and there is something time-critical â€¦..email me l.tarman@gmail.com & I can modify it for you.

Miller's Flip Flops  (TpT Seller) re: ActiveInspire Flipchart for Language Arts Station
I would say you could go down as far as 2nd grade. My kids have to be able to correctly identify everything in your flipchart and the vocabulary is not too difficult. I teach 2nd grade and this would be very appropriate for year-end test prep or review, but not for the beginning of the year. Hope that helps :)
April 28, 2012
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
How thoughtful of you to comment! =)
I made this for a friend in 6th grade - so I thought 2 grades above and below might work. I'll relabel it for gr 2-6. Turning up in the right search could make all the difference in sales! Thanks!

Buyer re: March 2012 - Fold to make booklet for daily short prompts
Hi Lisa - I love your idea, but I can't figure out how to fold the paper to make all the dates work...OK, yes I'm spatially challenged! lol Can you help?

It seems no matter which way I fold the first sheet, the calendar is on the inside and upside down. Should I be cutting these sheets out and stapling?

Thanks,
Lisa
March 5, 2012
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
Oh my no......who has time to cut & staple!??! LOL

Sounds like the issue is how they were copied.

You should just print pages 2-7 if you want blank spaces, or 8-13 if you want lines.
You should print them double-sided so that the edge that is the TOP of the page is the TOP of the page for both sides. Our copier has a setting something like "Flip on the short side".
If you can't find a setting like that, you can print the original out single sided (6 pages)& stack them all on the copier & print "1 side to 2 side"....the copier will just think they are normal tall pages (not landscape) & do it right! You just keep the 3 pages together & fold them.

I hope that makes sense! I never thought about including copying instructions in the file! I should do that for April's booklet. -- Our school copier just seems to know what I'm thinking.

Let me know if this still doesn't make sense. I can try again via email. l.tarman@gmail.com

Hi Lisa,
I'm impressed. I think I would love them for scrapbooking. I'm going to try.
Will the border cownload into the page border part of word?
March 4, 2012
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
Thanks.
No, it won't go in the border or header part....it is like a picture. You copy & paste it into the file. Is that what you mean?
You can see how I use 2 of them together on almost all of my product thumbnails (just a screenshot of a word file)

A Little of This and That For The Classroom  (TpT Seller) re: Borders III - Make it cute!
How did you do that? Is it hard? Will you tell me? When will you put your package together?
March 4, 2012
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
I DO have a bundled set called Borders Bundle. I guess I should add that link to each description.
It's not HARD at all......just a little time consuming. I just use the drawing tools in Word to make them. I draw shapes & copy & paste & sometime rotate them and group. The "distribute horizontally" tool makes it easy to get things spaced evenly. Sometimes I use this website http://colorschemedesigner.com/ to pick colors that look cool together.
March 4, 2012

Buyer re: March 2012 - Fold to make booklet for daily short prompts
I love this and I shall be leaving positive feedback to reflect that, but I would very much like to know is an April booklet available? Alternatively, where did you get the little calendar? Thank you so much... this was just what I needed!
March 4, 2012
Lisa Tarman  (TpT Seller)
I didn't make April yet...but I will! It will probably cost 50 cents. I've been doing every other month free. April will be available for LEGAL size paper too! That's what I have always used for my daily Bellringer Books --- I think that is the perfect size.
I just drew the little calendar on the back cover with a table.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I teach Conceptual, Academic, Honors, and AP Physics, and an Algebra Test Prep course for students that failed the state exam (Keystone Exam). I have a lot of other products in my store since I am always helping other teachers. My non-physics products mostly target a single math standard or skill. I attend a lot of national conferences (AAPT, NSTA, NCMT, & NECC), do multiweek summer programs, and am a reader for the AP Physics B Exam.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Effective ;) lol

I'm not sure if it fits this category.....but I was honored to be selected for these elite programs:
* a RET (research experience for teachers) program at Cornell Univ. for 6 weeks in '08
* the Dept of Energy's ACTS (Academy Creating Teacher Scientists) at Princeton Plasma Physics Lab for 7 weeks each summer in '09 & '10
* the national Quarknet program focusing on particle physics
* Funding to attend the annual Teacher Workshop at the Kavli Institute of Theoretical Physics in Santa Barbara
* RET Program at Baylor University for 7 weeks each summer in '11 & '12
