Is there any way to get this product other than in a zipped file?

I placed it in a zipped file because there are several documents, and it was the only way I knew to sell a group of items instead of just single items. Are you unable to open zipped files? If you are unable to open them, I can try to email them to you. You would just have to give me your email address. Thank you for your interest in my products. Please let me know if I can help you in any way.

I apologize for not answering your question sooner. I have been on vacation without computer access.

Yes, you may edit the documents to reflect your class name or make any other changes that you deem necessary for your classroom.

Are you having a problem opening the zip folder? The files were saved in a zip folder in order to be able to upload them to the TpT site in one folder. Within the folder are word document, PDF, and PowerPoint documents. I will also email you at the above address.

Thank you for your purchase. I will do everything I can to ensure that you are able to open the documents.

Missy Powers

I attempted to email you at your address, but it was returned with the statement failed delivery. If you are unable to open the zip folder, I will email you the documents if you will check your email address to ensure it is correct. I copied and pasted it to the address box in order to avoid a typo. If you are having problems opening a specific document, I can just send that document if you will let me know which document. I'm sorry I have been unable to contact you.

Since I have not had a reply from you, I have contacted TpT about the problem. They have asked that you contact them directly, and they will try to help you open the files. Please let me know if you have any other problems or questions.

Hello, I just purchased this power point and I did not see the notes on the slides, that provide explanations about the slides.

Missy Powers  (TpT Seller)
Hello.

If you open the PowerPoint and just click on each picture without it being in view slide show, there are notes at the bottom of the screen below the picture. I didn't have them float in on the picture so that the students would be able to view the entire picture. I also thought this might also allow teachers just to preview it and add their own comments.

If you would prefer that the notes float in on the actual slideshow, please let me know. I will be glad to change it for you.

Thank you for purchasing this PowerPoint. I hope you and your students enjoy it.

Hi Missy! If you give me your email address, I'd be happy to send you some really good tips about Pinterest and other things that can give visibility to your products. It's much too long to enter here. My sister-in-law lives in Augusta, GA and is a performing arts teacher at a magnet school there. She loves Georgia!

Hi Ruth!
Thank you so much! You are so nice to offer to help me like this. My email address is mapowers@windstream.net. Augusta is a beautiful area. I can understand why your sister-in-law loves it. I went to a math conference there this past summer, and it was beautiful. I live in Chatsworth, Georgia, which is in the north Georgia area with mountains very near. I love the area.

Thank you again so much. Please let me know if I can return the favor.

Thank you again.

Hi Missy! If you need help with anything, don't hesitate to ask! When I signed up in 2009 there were many experienced sellers who were very generous and helped me. Do you have a Pinterest account? I'd recommend signing up on that site. Take a look at mine.
http://pinterest.com/ruthspe/ You'll see I created one board where I 'pin' all my products. From that I have pinning rights to other boards. It's amazing! Happy New Year!

Hi Ruth! Thank you so much for your offer to help. I agree with you about Pinterest, and I have actually been working on my account. Mine is at http://pinterest.com/mpower02/.

Mine is not nearly as colorful and pretty as yours is and some of the others. I do need to replace the covers of my various groups. Do you have any other suggestions?

I am going to add the link to my store in the next few days. I've also thought about having a linking party, but I'm not sure how those work. Have you had one?

Does Pinterest take a lot of time to monitor and manage after your boards are organized, or is organizing your boards the hard part?

Thank you again so much for offering to help. I really appreciate it.

I ordered the S.S. Timed Passages. They are so awesome. I am excited to use them with my class. It is missing #'s 2, 12, 16, and 18. Could you send these to me or is there somewhere else I can find them?

Missy Powers  (TpT Seller)
I am glad that you like the reading passages. I probably should have explained week #2, 12, 16, and 18 in my description. Due to having to collect beginning of the year assessment data, I taught the same social studies topic for two weeks, so I used the same reading passage for two weeks. Our school system is on a 160 day school calendar, and we teach for more hours each day, so week 12 fell as Thanksgiving week, so I did not introduce a new social studies topic that week. Therefore, I didn't write a social studies passage for that week. The social studies topic for week #15 was government services, and I taught that for two weeks, so I repeated the reading passage for that week. The social studies topic for week #17 was Franklin D. Roosevelt. I taught FDR for two weeks, so I used the same passage for week #17 and #18.

I apologize for the confusion. Thank you for asking the question. I will update my product description to reflect those weeks so that buyers will be aware of why there are no passages for those weeks.

Is your 3rd grade social studies common core?

Thanks, Lee

Hi Lee.

The social studies reading passages are based on Georgia Performance Standards because Georgia has not changed social studies over to common core yet.

I hope this helps.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught third grade for four years, and I am currently teaching fifth grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to use brain based strategies when developing my lesson plans. Using United Streaming video clips, teachertube videos, you tube videos, real world situations, and manipulatives has proven to be very successful for me. Keeping children actively involved in the lesson by using manipulatives, individual white boards, ActivBoard lessons, and a document camera is a priority for me when developing lessons. The learning village units have proven to be extremely helpful.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I am a member of Alpha Delta Kappa.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I obtained my bachelor's degree from Dalton State University, my master's degree from Western Governor's University, and my specialist degree from Piedmont College.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Teaching is a second career for me. I worked 20 years in the medical field, and then I chose to return to school for my teaching degree so that I could give back to my community.
