I would say to just copy the text boxes and paste more. click on the box and then right click copy. Then right click paste and move the boxes around at will. I think I have formatted the squares so they can be moved where ever you'd like.

Melissa, this is a great powerpoint, however, when I clicked on one of the links on the last page it took me to a porn page. The link baltostruestory should have .net not .com. You may want to update your powerpoint. Thanks for the informative ppt. My kids will love it.

Hi Katrina,

I designed this for my 2nd graders a few years back, and these are the landforms they had to know: continent, ocean, river, lake, plain, mountain, valley, peninsula, island. Hope this helps. :)

Buyer re: The Travels of Marco Polo and Zheng He
I recently purchased your Marco Polo Ppt from TeacherPayTeachers. Unfortunately several slides look as though they are one on top of the other. Words cannot be read and pictures are overlapping.
Can you fix that and resend me a new Ppt?
Thanks.

Melissa Eaton  (TpT Seller)
Are you viewing these slides in slideshow mode? I know that I say in my description that I use advanced ppt techniques like fades and overlaps. The slides look odd in edit mode, but if you click on them as a slide show, the animations should work. I just checked this ppt and it works fine in slideshow mode. Please try it this way and if you still have trouble, email me at mdw3437@yahoo.com and I'll see if I can send it in googledocs or another way.

Hi! This one is one page, double sided, or two pages, depending on how you copy it. There are 20 run-on sentences to fix. I believe I took my 4th graders real run-on sentences and used them to make this page. :)

Hi Tom. I'm guessing the graphics would work if I saved the files as .pdfs. Can you email me at mdw3437@yahoo.com and I will email them that way? That's the only thing I can think of. I leave them on TpT as word documents so that teachers can edit them, but the graphics might have issues with word. Thanks,

It's just the one story. These Power Points get pretty large, so I only ever put one story in a file, otherwise it'd be too big to upload. Thanks!

Well, the unit covers 4th grade fractions, according to the Illinois State Standards. I have also used it with 6th and 3rd graders, and I can show you how to modify it up, if you'd like. The unit is linked with the state standards completely. What I did is I made a 20 question pre and post test, with each question representing a standard the kids had to master. Then I grouped all the 4th grade classes by skill. For example, all the kids who understood equivalencies went together, and so did the kids who only understood how to fill in a picture to represent a fraction. Then, there are mini lessons on the standards, so you can differentiate.

It does not go into decimals, but I have some additional stuff I can send you if you purchase the fractions unit. Please just email me at mdw3437@yahoo.com.

Melissa :)

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching since 2000. I taught sheltered 6th grade in a low-income district near Chicago for 4 years, and 3rd and 4th grade for two years. I also taught 2nd and 3rd grade summer school. I earned National Board Certification in 2008. I currently work as an ESL/ELL specialist teacher for K-5. I do both small group (pull-out) teaching as well as co-teaching in regular classrooms.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style involves encouraging a lot of student participation. My students use cooperative learning activities throughout the day, and many of my materials are for use with small groups of students. I tend to incorporate fun graphics to get students excited about their assignments.
