Kenita L.
Is there any way you could add more literary terms to your ppts. They are great for those few terms, but if you could expand the list of terms it would be even better.

unitedtoteach Christine Lewis  (TpT Seller) re: The Globe Theater - An Introduction
I am currently putting together a page on the Elizabethan Age, and came across this when I was searching the Globe Theater under Pinterest. This looks fantastic. I was wondering if I could advertise this for you on my site. I keep a Facebook fanpage, a site newsletter, pin myself, and email to various groups every month. In lieu of having this advertised for you on my page you could do one of two things: provide a one-time freebie for ONE lucky recipient from my Facebook fanpage (and have one month of advertising on the page) OR provide a free copy ONLY to be in archives for paid MEMBERS (not to visitors), and have your product remain on the page with a link to your product in the store (where they have to purchase it). If you are interested in participating in this advertising of your product, please email me at clewis@unitedtoteach.com, along with a copy of this product and what preference you have for advertising. If you have any questions, you can also clarify this offer before sending a copy of this product, but I will not mention it on my page until there is some agreement and attachment included. Thanks, Christine Lewis.

I purchased "Literary Terms Test - Bonus Garfield Comic Strip Question!"

Thank you!

Can I bother you for the key, please. I've got TAs grading my finals. I'm just trying to do the easiest (laziest) thing.

Buyer re: Literary Terms and Figurative Language Battle of the Sexes Game!
Thanks so much for this awesome game! I just bought it and tried to use it with Microsoft Powerpoint 2010 and I can't get any of the sounds to work. I was really hoping to use it for my class, but not sure how to make those work! How do I find out what clips you used and maybe I can try and reconstruct my own? Any help would be great!

Thanks!

I'm very sorry that it's not working for you. I found most of my sound clips from http://www.wavsource.com/ . I wish I could help more; I don't know what the problem could be. :(

Hi Melody!
I really love what you have created, however, I have 5th graders and I would like to add music clips the same way you have added clips from movies and television. How did you go about doing that exactly? I'd like to take some things out and add some in, but I'm unsure as to how I can do that?

Hi there! I'm glad you like the game! To be honest, it's been probably six or seven years since I originally created the game, and I've been staying at home with my little girls for over five years, so I'm really out of practice. I just remember saving .wav files to my computer and then inserting them into PowerPoint. I'm sure that doesn't help much, and I do apologize. Good luck with it all!

Thank you SO much for the quick reply! Yes, it worked like a charm (both the presentation AND the effect it had on my kiddos)! They loved the "review" style and the competition. It offered funny clips, interactive learning, and many teachable moments (especially with terms they didn't know). Thank you, thank you!!!

Buyer re: Literary Terms and Figurative Language Battle of the Sexes Game!
I just purchased the review (desperately needed something interactive like this for Wednesday, 01/09/13). sadly, my sound links/clips are refusing to play. Any ideas on how to make the clips work or what I may be doing wrong? I purchased, immediately downloaded, and updated my Abode software for the game. Am I missing anything??? Please let me know ASAP, as I'd love to use it THIS WEEK. Thanks!

Hello, and thanks for purchasing the game! It works in MS PowerPoint, have you tried that? If you don't have MS Powerpoint, you can try using the free Powerpoint Viewer that can be downloaded here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=6
Please let me know how it goes! I haven't had any complaints about the game, so I'm not sure what else it could be. I really hope it works out!

Anna Campos  (TpT Seller) re: Literary Terms and Figurative Language Battle of the Sexes Game!
This looks like fun! My question is do the students just have to listen and find the figurative language and then label it? I know that sounds redundant, but I'm just not sure if there's a question slide or they know they're looking to ID the phrase and figurative language type. Thank you!

Hi Anna! The students listen to the movie/tv/music clip and then they have a second to discuss in their groups to find the figurative language. It could be anything from alliteration, irony, simile, etc. There's no specific question slide, just the clip. I hope that helps! Thanks for looking, Anna!

Hello,
I just downloaded the Harry Wong procedures and it was in a strange format. What program should I be opening it in?

Hello,
Thanks for purchasing the HW procedures! The file is a Microsoft Word document, so I recommend using that program to open it. Let me know if that doesn't work, and we'll figure something out.
