Sure. Right now it covers the major parts of speech...nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions, interjections, and articles. I say "right now" because I am eventually going to add more by moving into subjects, predicates, compound/complex sentences, commas, etc. That will unfold this summer. Thanks for asking!

Michelle,
My class is currently using interactive notebooks for both language and reading and we just started one for math. I would love to start incorporating them in social studies as well. First off, do your interactive notebooks match the new common core standards? Secondly, do you have a third grade version of the notebook for history, geography, government, and economics?

Thanks,
Lisa Jacquemin

michelle harper  (TpT Seller)
Hi Lisa,
Our state adopted CCSS for E/LA and Math. We are still currently under our STATE standards for Social Studies. So my Geography, Economics, and Government interactive notebooks fit those current standards. (Standards for us are changing next year so I'll be making additions to my SS units next year!) The Math interactive notebooks hit a variety of CCSS, but not necessarily ALL. IN other words, they are a supplemental tool, but not an "end all." The fractions interactive notebook, for example, hits four of the third grade CC standards. Our teachers use them in addition to our current math program to make sure between the series and the notebooks, standards are being met. They also utilize them for accountable talk discussions, and assessment reviews. I hope this helps. Please feel free to email me with any further questions or discussion needed. :-) nomonkeybusinessmichelle@gmail.com

michelle harper  (TpT Seller)
If you're looking for a unit full of word problems, I don't think this would be it. (I do have one, though, for each month of the year!) This bundle is 7 units (soon to be 8) on the different concepts taught in 3rd grade in notebooking style. Students cut, glue, and write about the math concept they've learned. They are some chances to solve problems, but it's definitely not centered around that. It's more flips and flaps, definitions, a few games, and writing to explain. More of a study tool as you get through a unit. If you teach 3rd or 4th and are looking for a problem solving unit try this link instead. (Sold individually or bundled as well) http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Problem-Solving-through-November-392517 Hope this helps. Thanks for checking! :-)

Michelle,
I knew they were for 3 to 4th grade. I have 4 or so second graders that can complete them without needing help. I don't want a refund because it is AWESOME! All kids are different with math skills, so if you have 3rd graders solving division and fractions this early in the year, you are BLESSED! If you ever do problem solving for 1st or 2nd I will follow you and keep an eye out for it. Once again, I would highly recommend your product and I am sure I will be able to give some of the students the monthly packet. Thanks again.

Cindy Friese  (TpT Seller) re: Problem Solving Monthly Bundle
Hi Michelle,
I thought this would be perfect for the high group in second grade, however it was a little too much for them. I am thinking that it would be perfect for 5th grade. Some of the problems are very hard and require multiple steps. Including division and fractions. I think they are great, but perfect for older kids or kids that are really good at critical thinking. If you had problem solving for first and second I would be first in line to buy them. GREAT PRODUCT, just wish I could use it.

Hi Cindy. Thanks so much for your feedback. Our third graders use these as a problem of the day and as an instructional coach at my school I have used them with super high flyers in second, like i mentioned, but yes, they are challenging! (Why I marked them best for third and fourth). I'm so sorry that you can't use it! I would be more than happy to contact TpT to refund your money since it didn't meet your needs. Truly want people to be able to use the resources !
Thanks again!

If you use the composition books (no spirals) it'll take 2. Use both front and back sides of the notebooks. One of my former teammates used 1 BIGGER size spiral notebook.

Awesome...Go Big Blue! ;-) When I planned these units, I sat with the C.C.S.S. in front of me as the end goal. But I also listened to teachers who were saying, "Don't just give me the application and problem solving piece for each unit...we want to use this as a tool to "TEACH" our kids what some key concepts are. So I tried to create with both in mind. There's a couple of units that are definitely more geared to third grade since the very basic is introduced in 2nd...fractions, division, geometry ...So it may be that you want to purchase the units separately. (Addition/Subtraction, Numeracy, Multiplication concepts, & Money) are the ones my 2nd grade teachers love. :-) I hope this helps.

I wish your description had a list of what is included. The preview is so tiny that I really can't tell what's in the pack and if it is what I am looking for.

It contains several getting to know you activities, including a bingo game, a cooperative group activity for things like "who in the group has the longest name," a paper-fight activity, which is the favorite every year, and a truth/fib activity. There are calendar pieces with a sports theme(1-31), treat bag cards sports themed, and a textbook treasure hunt where students explore their new textbooks. Hope this helps.

Is there a way to print so the graphics are white instead of gray? It looks great on the computer but when students go to color them they don't show up as vibrant. I've messed with the print settings but they still print in grayscale.

Hi Samantha. At the time I created this, the clip art company didn't have the images in black and white...color only. I double checked today and they do have them in line art. I would be happy to switch the images out for you and email you a copy of the new document. It'll just have to be later this evening when I get home! :-) Shoot me an email address where I can send when I get them switched out! Hope this helps! Nomonkeybusinessmichelle@gmail.com.

Hi,
I am loving the idea of Tap Light games, but I am not sure I have seen them around here. What store did you find them at? Do you have an item # in case I need to search for them? I would like to make sure I can get these before I buy the bundle;) thanks so much! I just put about 20 of your items on my wish list!!!

Hi Mary! :-) I got mine at our local Dollar Tree. They had the different shapes (moon, heart, etc.) I couldn't get them to pull up on the Dollar tree website today, BUT here's a link to a heart shape one from a different company. http://www.toptenwholesale.com/wholesale-products-heart-shaped-touch-light-p225690 Amazon had the plain ones in sets of 2 for a little more than I paid. (I found them for a dollar a piece!) Link to Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-32703-Round-Touch-2-Pack/dp/B008IBCGB4/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1364487954&sr=8-9&keywords=led+touch+lights

I have also seen them at Lowe's and Home Depot (also for a little more, but better quality) I know after teachers started buying them around here, they were scarce! I hope you have good luck!
Thanks for your Q! Hope this helps! Thanks, Mary! Michelle

Hi! Yes, will be doing one for Fractions. :-) In all honesty, it will be a couple of weeks before I can get it done, though. How soon are you all doing fractions? nomonkeybusinessmichelle@gmail.com

Any chance you could bundle your "Problem Solving Thru ___ Packets" for a price cut if you want them all? I like them, but, a little pricey for me to spend $5 each month. Thanks!

Hi Ashley,
Thanks for your email. That is totally my plan once I get them all made. However, I just started them in October. There's an Oct, Nov., Dec, and Jan. made, and the Feb. one will be done very soon! So since I didn't have the whole set complete yet, wasn't sure how to bundle them?! So...that being said, YES, that's the game plan in the end. Have you bought any? Let me help you out!! If you have, let me know your user name and once I verify, I'll just send you the Feb. one free as soon as I get it done! :-) If you haven't bought any but were checking on the bundle before you do, I can help you out there, too. Why don't you email me so we can work something out?! :-) Thanks again for the inquiry! Michelle nomonkeybusinessmichelle@gmail.com

Yes! I took out last year's team names and made it user friendly for ANY Super Bowl! I also updated the graph with the giants' additional win last year! :-)

Marianne Merawi  (TpT Seller) re: Math Interactive Notebook-Division Concepts
How many pages would each notebook need? I have 27 kids and this looks cool but I can't spend a huge amount of money on notebooks.

I just checked my division one, and it took me 16 pages to put it together. On average it takes about 15-20 pages for each of the notebooks I have available. If you can't get the notebooks with school money and or donated (we have a business partner who helps with things like this) you could probably use copy paper and/or looseleaf notebook paper stapled together like a book with a construction paper cover or something like that.

Marianne Merawi  (TpT Seller) re: Math Interactive Notebook-Division Concepts
Other than downloading and copying the pages, what other materials will I need for this? Do I need actual notebooks or binders, or is the "notebook" stapled together?

Thanks!

Hi Marianne,
We have always used spiral notebooks or composition books. It involves cutting things out and gluing them in or on something, so you'll need something to put the items in. :-) Thanks for your question. Let me know if you need anything else. nomonkeybusinessmichelle@gmail.com

Jill D. re: Indian in the Cupboard Foldable
Do you recommend using this foldable DURING the reading of the novel, or is this better utilized at the end of the book?

We put the foldable together first before reading, (which got the kids really excited about diving in!) then filled it in DURING the novel. When we finished Chapters 1 & 2, for instance, they wrote the summaries for those chapters. As they thought of questions, they wrote those under "generating questions, we added vocabulary as we went along etc. Hope that helps! Let me know how it goes. LOVE this story! :-) nomonkeybusinessmichelle@gmail.com

I noticed that these are for 3-5 graders-----I have a fifth grade classroom. Are they more for lower level 5th graders? Trying to make wise decisions as I purchase things for my classroom. Thanks for your thoughts.
