Angela B. re: Real World Reading and Math Project- Be a Real Estate Agent (US and Canada)
I love the sound of this project! I wonder which place value skills it covers? In Virginia, we cover identifying, comparing, and rounding numbers through the millions and wondered if this was a good fit. Thanks!

Melissa Shutler  (TpT Seller)
I have added a little more to the description. :). Students read numbers up to one million. They also round to the nearest 10,000 and compare the prices of houses.

Buyers say things like "We are looking for a house less than $350,000."

Hope this helps!

Malaka Soliman
Malaka S. re: Math Interactive Notebook Printables -Grade 4
I bought the 4th grade notebook. I was wondering about the following concepts. I didn't see them in.(They were in my son's fourth grade Math)
1- Mode, median,and mean.
2- co-ordinate graphing and number pairs.
3- equivalent Fraction and decimal.(on a number line. He couldn't do it.)
4- basic algebraic thinking and linear equations.
5- Rational numbers.
6- estimate sums and difference.
7- fraction operations.(adding, subtracting, finding common denominators)

I was planning on buying 5th grade Math for next year. My son is a second grader, but he is doing the work of fifth. I thought maybe this will make it more fun.

I can add numbers 3-7 after I get back from my vacation. Mean, median, and mode are not listed in the 4th grade common core standards.

Common Core:
Moved from 4th Grade:
• Coordinate system (3.01)
• Transformations (3.03)
• Line graphs and bar graphs (4.01)
• Data - median, range, mode, comparing sets data (4.03)
• Probability (4.04)

Melissa Shutler
Melissa Shutler  (TpT Seller)
Sure! My interactive notebooks have vocabulary and quick activities to help students remember concepts. Students cut out the activities and glue them in a notebook.

My guided math notebook has a mini lesson with vocabulary all on one page with no cutting. Most standards also have an "I do, we do, you do" problem solving page, which is a guided problem solving activity. They are better for binders but can also be glued into notebooks.

The main difference is that the guided pack is more step-by-step guided math while my notebook printables simply give students a record of concepts they've learned. My students loved their notebooks!

I paid for them and the payment has cleared paypal but the items are still in my cart and not in my purchases to download. I have contacted tpt but with no response yet. I know they had problems with that day due to the huge sale and the amount of internet users but I am awaiting my units to be delivered. If you could let me know that would be great.

Suzanne re: Groundhog Day for Upper Grades- With Nonfiction, Data, and Decimals
This is a wonderful resource that requires synthesizing of information - a tough skill! I very much enjoyed this resource.

That being said, could you take a look at 2 things?
1 - On "The Data" page the directions say take a look at his predictions from 1993-2012 when the table actually shows 2003-2012

2 - On "The Discussion" page at the bottom it asks for a year that had below average temps in both months, and the answer of 2006 is given. According to the table, 2006 had above avg temps both months, so there is no correct answer to that question.

Thank you.

Melissa,
Our fourth grade science teacher purchased your science notebook and LOVES IT! I was curious whether you might have something along those line for 5th grade. He loved your notebook so much that he brought it to our science curriculm planning meeting and suggested that the district consider purchasing one for every 4th grade teacher in the district--we have 44 schools in our district. The thing that impressed him especially was that it was already aligned to Next Generation Science standards. So back to my original question do you have something like it for 5th grade?

I purchased an author study from you and the titles do not line up on the page. For example, the title of a page is at the bottom of the previous page. Is it possible to fix this issue?

Do you have a preview? I'm would love to see samples or bits and pieces of the other pages, especially the project choice sheet.

Melissa, I really like your idea of a poetry calendar; however, I would like my students to create for Mother's Day. Would it be possible to get a calendar for 2014-2015?

That's a great idea. I'll make one tomorrow for June 2014- June 2015. Would that work?

Melissa, I purchased Winter Holidays Around the World but I can't copy it for classroom use because I can't find the copyrite information. Can you tell me where I can get this information? I love your stuff and I'm excited to use this download in December. Thank you for your help, Jan

Thank you for the nice compliment! You are allowed to download it for one classroom and use it however you'd like. What kind of copyright information are you looking for?

So is the "description" structure ALSO called "main idea/details" or has it CHANGED to being called this??

Someone asked for the change thinking it would be easier for students to understand. It is still description. If you would like, I can use both terms.

I actually have two questions, and depending upon the answer - I'll purchase SEVERAL of your packets quickly, but I have to know: (1) are these aligned with Common Core and (2) do they align with the Basal Alignment Plan? These look great!

The additional standard information would be greatly appreciated. We are being held very accountable - for sticking to the BAP and the CCSS (without any resources, lol). I've created my own in the past, but this year, I simply do not have time!

Thank you! I created these tests during the first year of implementing common core. They have a variety of text-dependent questions and graphic organizers. Throughout the year, students are asked to support their answers with facts from the selection. I can supply you with more information on the standards that are covered if needed.

Thank you. I don't mean to rush you, and I'm sorry to hear that. I was just checking because they are so much more helpful than the book tests, as far preparing them for the common core standards. Thank you!
