Angela Wargo  (TpT Seller) re: Free Classroom Posters for Tablet Rules
Hi! These posters are great and I can't wait to use them!
I was wondering if you could make one that says "We close out of our apps when we are done". We share an I-pad cart between a whole grade level and it is frustrating when the kids turn on the I-pads and they are all in the middle of different unclosed apps from the previous class.

Miss DeCarbo  (TpT Seller)
Hi Sara, yes in this pack all of the passages have pictures. It's great for the beginning of the year but because it is for beginning readers it would be too simple for the mid-end of the year. I have harder passages in my store if you are looking for a more advanced text level. :) Thanks so much! :)

Hello! :) YES! The games are easily differentiated in that your students can play using one, two, or three digit numbers. So your lower kids can add one and two digit numbers and your high kids can add/subtract three digit numbers. :)

I love your products... Purchased the spring passages and love it for my second graders just before silent reading. Answering in a complete sentence is difficult for many to do independently. One question is just enough because I review answers and we discuss our favorites. Thinking of coming up with a rubric to grade the question with students. Love the fluency and evidence with it. So.... When will you be posting nonfiction- possibly the fall?? THANK YOU for all of your hard work!

Kara B. re: Sight Word Fluency Passages for Reading Intervention! {Version 2}
Do you happen to know the grade level equivalency for these passages? I am using these for Tier 2 with my lowest first graders. They are loving it! :) I just started but as I am documenting their data points their RCBM is significantly higher than their AIMS Web. This is fabulous because they need this boost in confidence. I have a few kids in child study that are reading so well with these passages and I need to justify the difference. I know they are lower than the AIMS Web passages, just wondering if you have figured it out specifically. Thank you for an awesome product!

Miss DeCarbo
Miss DeCarbo  (TpT Seller)
Hi Kara,

The passages are not Lexile leveled so I don't have an exact score on them. My kids read these better than AIMsweb, too. (We use AIMS as well! :). The reasoning is because the passages are mostly filled with sight words and decodable text. AIMSweb fluency passages include a lot of two syllable words, irregular vowel patterns, etc. The phonics within these passages are simply more decodable to boost confidence in young readers! :)

Hello. :). I'm sorry you are having tech issues, I know that can be frustrating. This sounds like an Adobe issue for your PDF reader on your computer. When you download the files, they are already in a PDF so make sure you have the latest version of Adobe installed on your computer. Often it needs updated periodically. This is a common issue if the Adobe isn't updated on your computer and it will help with future TpT experiences from other sellers as well. Jamie Rector has a great blog post on this to help you. Just copy/paste this web address into your browser http://2ndgradestuff.blogspot.com/2013/04/help-i-cant-save-or-print-my-tpt-file.html

If that does not help, contact TPT Tech Support. They have a help button located in your My Purchases page and they can help you as well. If that does not work, feel free to email me at secondgradesugarandspice@gmail.com Thank you so much :)

Hello! Do you have any idea when you will be posting your quotation unit? I'm starting quotations next week and really want to purchase your unit. I love your resources! Thanks so much!

Hi Ashley! It is available now in my store. :) If you click on Most Recent in my store it should be the first one that pops up. It's called Who Said That? A Dialogue and Quotation Mark Unit for Readers and Writers!

Thank you so much! :)

I was looking at this unit on my ipad and then went to buy it from my computer where I would be able to print it off and the price went up from 5.53ish to 6.50. Did you raise the price all of the sudden or was I looking at a different unit?

Hello! This weekend many sellers (including myself) had a Spring Sale. The sale ran Friday through Monday so I think you were looking at a sale price before that has now ended. I have not raised the price on that unit. :)

Thank you so much! :)

Yes I do have plans for this eventually. :) It will most likely be available this summer, before "back to school" time. :) Thank you so much!

Buyer re: Text Evidence Reading Passages! {SPRING Edition}
I also purchased this download and when I try to open it you can't see any of the text. I have never had an issue downloading anything else on TPT.

I'm sorry you are having technical difficulties. I know that can be frustrating. The pack is definitely in good shape. There is a lot of text due to the passages, so updating the Adobe on your computer will really help and help with any future TpT purchases from all sellers. Please see the link below to get help with updating your Adobe. You can also contact me at secondgradesugarandspice@gmail.com and I can help as well. :)
I have checked this file many, many times on many different computers and it opens perfectly so I am sure we can help you get this to download correctly. :) https://support.teacherspayteachers.com/Why-my-PDF-blurry-There-are-black-lines-where-images-should-be-c15-a86.html

I use Literacy First's 300 words. Would your passages work with that?

Miss DeCarbo  (TpT Seller)
I'm not very familiar with the Literacy First Words, however, the passages cover Fry's basic sight words. I'm assuming many words cross over. Here is a link to the Fry Words. You can copy/paste this into your browser to compare the words you use with the words in the first 300 Fry List. This may help you make a better decision for your classroom. :) Thank you so much! :) Christina http://www.londonderry.org/assets/twps/sandibrown/WordList.pdf

Hi! I just purchased your poetry party packet and love it! However, when I downloaded it, starting on p. 17 the titles on the top of every page is a big, black line. Any thoughts or ideas how to get this to work?

Hi Sarah,

If you are seeing black lines on the download, this would be an Adobe issue with your PDF reader. If you copy/paste the following link, TpT has written directions for this exact problem, as it is a common issue if the Adobe is not updated frequently on the computer. It will help you with future purchases on TpT as well, from all sellers. :) Please feel free to email me at secondgradesugarandspice@gmail.com if you need further help. :) Thank you, Christina

I'm sorry you are having technical difficulties. I know that can be frustrating! This sounds like an Adobe issue. I checked the file and all looks well. Sometimes if your Adobe isn't updated things will download and be "missing." If that does not work, please email me at secondgradesugarandspice@gmail.com and I can help walk you through it or email you a copy to see if that works better with your Adobe. :) Thank you so much! :) Christina

Will you becoming out with text based evidence packs at a lower lexile level? We would love something between your early reader set and the seasonal sets that you have.

I've had a few requests from others as well for a 'mid level' set. I've placed it on my "to-do" list. :)
