I purchased your Algebra 1 study guide and I love it! I was looking for something to give to my students before their EOC to refresh everything they've learned and this is perfect. There were just a couple of places that I taught them how to do it a little differently and wanted to change it. I was wondering if you had a word document of the study guide so that I can alter it for the needs of my students. Thanks again for creating such a wonderful product and let me know if I could get a word document version.

Mary I purchased the Thomas Jefferson Internet Activity ~ I love it.
However, there is a typing error for the Monticello section of the activity. I believe it should say "House & Gardens" but states "Garens"
Thought you might want to correct it.
Thanks!

Hi Mary, Thanks for letting me know you are having a problem. I checked all the links and they work. Have you tried clicking on the links (or control-click) in the pdf? This is how I access links instead of typing them in. I did check and the embedded links do match what you see.

If it doesn't work then, please let me know, and I can upload the file again because perhaps there was an unknown problem in my upload or your download.

Buyer re: Algebra 1 Tests #1-#12 Bundle
I am a homeschool parent and will be teaching Algebra 1 next year to my 9th grader. We will be using the Paul Foerster book Algebra 1: Expressions, Equations, and Applications, classic edition 1999. I do not know if you are familiar with this book. I am trying to find tests that I can use for this course, without having to purchase the publishers $100 version.
Do you have any idea if your tests would be equivalent to this book? Is that an impossible question?!
Thank you for your time,
Rachel W.

Mary Shoemaker  (TpT Seller)
Thank you. Unfortunately, I do not know this book. If you are looking for tests for a traditional course, these could work fine and based on my experience in using these tests with my class, these can challenge your child. I did a little research and just from the short descriptions I found, think you might need to add some application problems but would not know for sure without seeing the actual text. At any rate, you can't go wrong with having more problems for practice and tests.

Hi,
I bought your notes in the past (and they are wonderful). I realize they've expired, so I will purchase them again.
May I post this study guide under my resources online for my students, given I keep your copyright intact? I won't do it if you don't approve it. I respect your copyright.

Also, may I give out copies? I have some students with modifications and I'd like to share these with him. Thank you in advance for a response.
Have a good day.

First of all, thank you so much for your comment on the newsletter. I did make another one for $1.00, but have only sold about 20 copies. I started another one, but they are a lot of work for so little buyers. However, I am coming up with a different plan where I will make them available for free and hope to generate sales related to what I write about. I also started a Facebook page where I give ideas and can answer questions on technology questions. You can check that out if you are on Facebook. Look for the "Technology for Teachers" page. Oh, I just started a new position, so it might be a little bit until I get going on new items again. Mary

August 6, 2008 Report inappropriate comment

Mary Shoemaker  (TpT Seller)
I know that you can make "fill-in-able" worksheets, but I haven't. I have the students in a lab setting and have them complete the worksheets as they look at the webpages. I am trying to get students to focus on how to find appropriate information on the internet and have a limited amount of time (30-60 minutes) for them to complete the worksheets that I make. Young students do not have the typing skills to type the answers to the questions quickly enough. Also, they may have difficulty flipping back and forth between a website and a "fill-in-able" worksheet. They may have a tendency to "X" out and lose all their work. Also, this feature might encourage "cut and paste" answers. Mary

Hello Mary,

I teach Computers to students in grades k-5. I really enjoyed the KIDPIX activities.
I would like to know if you have done something for grades 3-5 and if so what? I would also like to know if your work is copyrighted? I saw something about copyrighting on this site before, but dont recall where it is. Also, do you have additional formatting activities for grades 2-3. Last, I like the pdf documents vs putting them in WORD, if you could, please tell me how to go about doing that.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a teacher for more than 25 years. During this time, I taught math and computers at the junior high level and computers at the elementary level. I also worked as a mentor teacher and technology coordinator where I trained teachers on using technology in their classrooms. I have started a page on Facebook where I or anyone can add tips for integrating curriculum and technology. Search for "Technology for Teachers" and click the "Like" button to get tips. Finally, click below to view my site highlighting websites to use with students: https://sites.google.com/site/techandteachers/home

MY TEACHING STYLE

For computers, I believe in teaching the students how to complete projects that are integrated within their classroom instruction. When I do assign students to play comnputer games, I choose games very carefully and always have a criteria for what they need to accomplish. When I teach math, I am very structured, but like to add in fun activities, games, and projects that get kids excited about math.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Computer Products: My computer worksheets use a variety of websites. Occasionally a website has changed and the link that I have provided does not exist anymore or the content has changed slightly. For example, when we elected Barack Obama for president, the White House website instantly changed. I use all these worksheets and update them when I notice a problem. However, I may miss some changes. If you purchase one of my products and find the website isn't correct, please leave me a message, and I will update the worksheet ASAP so that you can download it again. Math Products: I do my best to make a quality product, but do make errors. If you download a math product and something is not clear or incorrect, please contact me, and I will update the product ASAP with corrections so that you can download it again.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BA: Developmental Psychology MEd: Educational Management Teaching Credentials: Elementary, Secondary Math

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have many interests besides computers and math. I love to read, make quilts, do other crafts, and also love the holidays.
