Antoinette K. re: American Colonies Unit- 43 PAGES!!
Are there detailed information for each of the colonies not just the regions?
December 28, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Mrs Bart
Mrs Bart  (TpT Seller)
Thank you for your question. This unit mostly focus on the characteristics of the colonies by region (Mid Atlantic, New England, Southern). As each region is covered, certain colonies are highlighted and discussed: Jamestown, Roanoke Island, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts Bay, and Plymouth. There is a map that shows the original 13 colonies and which region each colony belongs in.

I hope this has answered your question. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Happy New Year!

Hi! I am looking for a reading passage for 4th grade on the Rev. War. I was videotaping my small group today for my National Boards and noticed that it was way too long. By the time my students read and made their inferences my 14 minutes allowed was up.

Do you have any reading passages in your Rev. War units that would be worth buying your unit for? I couldn't tell in the preview.

Mrs Bart  (TpT Seller)
Thank you for your question and for considering my product. I have not included any reading passages in this packet. We used this packet in conjunction with a small 'textbook' that a company created for our state's standards, so we just used that for our reading passages. If you are looking for something specifically geared toward reading, I would not recommend purchasing my unit. I hope that was helpful. Have a great night!

Okay thank you for your help! I am still not sure what is going on. I finally received an invite for another collaborative board I asked to join a day before yours, but I never received it through email. Maybe this is an issue I need to contact Pinterest about. I will give your invitation another day before I do that. I really appreciate you getting back to me!:)

Hello! Thank you for adding me to your Pinterest board! I am new to TpT and the collaborative boards, so I am a little confused. How do I access the board after I follow it, and you add me? I thought I saw someone say you wait for an invite, but where would I find this? In my email? I am sure it's so simple. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!:)

Hi Liz,
Thanks for joining my board- I'm glad to have you :) You should have received an invite- I doubled checked and Pinterest does have down that you are invited. You would receive an email from Pinterest, as well as get a notification (to read those, you just click on the red number by your name on your Pinterest homepage.) It will ask you to 'accept' the invite. Once you do, my board will appear with the rest of your boards and you can pin to it whenever you want. I hope this was helpful! Please let me know if you have any other questions or if you don't receive the invite.
Sincerely,
Kaitlin

Advice Needed, I am trying to sell items but its slow. How do I gain followers, how did you come up with your graphics, how do you promote yourself. Any Advice is wlecomed
September 28, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Mrs Bart
Mrs Bart  (TpT Seller)
Todd,
I'm certainly not an expert on this subject; all I can share is just a few of the things that have worked for me:

* Most of my graphics came from other TpT sellers (clip art). They have been well worth the money and there is a LARGE variety of graphics to choose from.

* I haven't utilized my followers as well as other sellers have. They have done things like send a once-a-month newsletter with shop news and promos. I would like to do this more consistently.

* I pin my items to many collaborative Pinterest boards and that has been a huge traffic draw for me. I would recommend joining a few that fit your subject areas.

* Another thing that helps with marketing is to create a cover page for your items that is attractive and has the title of your product on it. It makes your store look more professional as well.

* I also have a blog, though tracking whether that actually drives traffic to my TpT shop is hard to do, so I'm not sure how much that attributes to my sales.

* The last bit of advice I have is to just give it time. I've been a member of TpT for years and it took some time to get traction. Make sure your shop represents good, quality products and the sales will come.

Hope this helps! Good luck on your TpT journey!

Hey Mrs. Bart, I am a student teacher in Ohio and I just made a big mistake. I am in the middle of my Revolutionary war unit and i meant to download your Revolutionary War 2 lessons however i accidentally downloaded your colonies unit. This was my mistake and as far as I know I cannot return products on Teachers pay teachers, can i exchange the colonies unit that I downloaded from you for the Revolutionary War #2 lessons? Thanks and i am sorry for the inconvenience. My email is jkaloge@falcon.bgsu.edu

I'm sorry that it won't work for your students and I understand how resources aren't always appropriate for every classroom. Unfortunately, the TeachersPayTeachers Support Team is the only group that can issue a refund on this site and all requests must go through them. You need to submit a ticket explaining why you want a refund (the form can be found when you click the 'Contact Us' link on the very bottom left hand corner of the home page) and they will get back to you. I hope this helps. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

1/7/13 UPDATE: I received this response from the administrator:
"The buyer just needs to log back in, go to her My Purchases page, and download the updated version you've uploaded."

This seems the be the easiest way to get the PDF version to you. If it doesn't work, please let me know.

Thank you for your question and for bringing that to my attention. I've changed the format from Word to PDF and reposted this product. This should keep the margins and formatting from changing when you download it. The PDF version should automatically be sent to you. If you don't receive it, please let me know and I'll make sure you have one.

That's a good question. If you look in the Teacher Notes section (at the end of the packet), I've included many of the answers to the worksheets. The easiest thing for you to do in the case of a sub would be to print an extra packet and write the answers in that one. I hope this helps! If you have any other questions or if you need clarification on what any of the answers should be, please let me know and I'll be glad to help you out!

As far as enlarging the cards....I am able to enlarge pdf pages on my printer by selecting the 'poster' option under 'page size.' This allows me to choose the exact size that I want it to be. Since each printer is different, your sizing function may be named something different.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any additional questions and I will be more than happy to try to help you out!

You should have received this new version. If not, please let me know and I will help you get the corrected version. Thanks!

How long does your end-of-year Social Studies project last?
April 24, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Mrs Bart
Mrs Bart  (TpT Seller)
Great Question! Each year's time-frame varied as I used it as our 'after testing' project. Generally, it was about one week of in-class work with an additional day or two allocated for group presentations. If we had a shorter time period, I simply lowered my expectations on how extensive the projects were and helped students select ideas that could be accomplished in the shorter time (ie- posters, booklets, skits). If we had longer, I would require students to pick projects that fit that time-frame (ie- movie poster with a movie preview 'skit' or an illustrated picture book about their topic).
For those groups who seemed to finish way too early: I would help them brainstorm ways they could add elements or expand on their topic to improve their project. It's meant to be very flexible since each year is different.
Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Hi Mrs. Bart
I am a 6th grade AAP teacher in Fairfax County, Virginia. I've noticed you have lots of great resources that go along with my 6th grade curriculum. Just curious, are you a 6th grade teacher too? Thanks for getting back with me and keep up the great work!

Hi Daisy,
I'm glad my resources have helped you out! No, I don't teach 6th grade- most of my history resources come from my time teaching 5th grade. We taught US History in 5th in my particular county (though most of my colleagues in adjacent districts taught it in 6th grade, like Fairfax). I thoroughly enjoyed teaching history to that age group; there's just so many fun things you can do! We didn't have much in the way of prepared resources to go along with the curriculum, so I found myself creating most of the materials that we used. After a while, I thought: If these ideas are working for me, maybe they'll work for someone else as well. I appreciate your encouraging words. As teachers, we often put our all into our work, but we don't get a lot of feedback. It encourages me to know that my resources are benefiting others as well. I hope you have a successful school year and an enjoyable holiday season!
Sincerely,
Kaitlin

Absolutely! I have been known to 'double buy' an item once or twice as well. I looked up how to refund a purchase, but the only advice I found was to email the TpT office staff with the info and let them refund it from their end. They should be giving you a full refund ($3.99) instead of just a credit. If you do not receive your refund in the next few days, please let me know and I will make sure you get it in some form or another. Have a wonderful week!

I recently purchased your Native American/Explorer Unit along with a couple other files that I did not know where combined. I do not know if you refund on any of these but you might consider adding a note on each file that they may be a part of a different file. The files are awesome but the description did not cover this so I purchased some repetitive materials.

Thank you for your input! I was not aware that that information was not included in the description and I will certainly add it tonight! I'm not sure what the process is to refund as I am relatively new to TpT. However, if you would like to tell me which products you purchased were 'doubles,' I would be more than willing to find out how to refund that money to you. Please let me know if you have any other questions about the materials and have fun implementing them!- K.Bartholomew
