I am ready to have a group read this book. It is a favorite of mine. Before I purchase this, is there other word work besides the sample?
October 18, 2013
Mrs. R.  (TpT Seller)
I did not do vocabulary work for this unit, however I did include a few vocabulary questions in the Chapter questions.
A couple of examples:
Every diver carries a knife in a sheath. What is a sheath?
This is an example of “tough love”. Explain what this means and a time when you or someone else used “tough love”.

Good morning! I am a first grade teacher, formerly PK teacher. I just finished my masters in May (yea!) with a degree in Mind, Brain and Education – a subfield of education. The first program was started at Harvard by Howard Gardner and Kurt Fisher (if you haven’t read any of Kurt Fisher’s work on Skill Theory and you are interested in the cognitive processes involved in learning, you must read his work!)

Cut to the chase. When I moved up from PK to 1st I was shocked by my students’ lack of number sense. I spent an entire year and all last summer trying to figure out what was missing. In Nov I attended a workshop that on number sense. When I heard the presentation I recognized all the “big” names of the research I had been investigating. The workshop was a training session for an iPad app (Native Numbers). It seemed like a valid, robust app, but I am a skeptic and had to know: would this really work.

I am here to tell you that with the first skill set I saw every cognitive model of learning embedded in this app. I also realized that this app is more than a learning tool; it has built in formative and summative assessment as it is adaptive and levels up and down based on student performance and leads to mastery.

Now I am on a “mission” – everything we read tells us our students are lacking number sense. I believe this app is a fabulous tool to remediate those deficits. I have no vested interest in this app except that I am one of those people that has to solve problems and when I think I have found possible answers, I have to share that with others. Our kids are too important not to share---which is why I love reading blogs! I am asking for teachers to simply read the research and then try out the app and give me feedback---or give the feedback yourself to the developers. I am that convinced. I am not a salesman and I feel quite strange in this new role I have taken upon myself…but I have nothing to lose, or gain, except knowing that maybe we can have an enormous impact on our students!

If you have any questions, please e-mail me at tatergraderswife@yahoo.com Check out the app at www.nativebrain.com – you can find the background of the developers and read about the research behind the app. You can also watch a video on that site or go to these YouTube links:
I know this was long, so thanks for reading. Please let me know if you have questions!!!

It's not really a question, but I thought that you might want to know....in the On My HOnor comprehension pack, Chapters 10,11 and 12, you have missed lettered the definitions =D

Mrs. R.  (TpT Seller)
Thank you. I fixed it on my Word copy but my PDF is not working. If you would like the Word copy, send me your email address and I will send it to you. I appreciate you letting me know. My email is marykayr@mchsi.com

I just bought "There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom" and I need to make some changes to it. In the vocab pages, the forms of the definitions don't always match the forms of the words--e.g. "fluttered," past tense, matched with "move in a nervous and excited way," infinitive; "suspiciously," adverb, matched with "feeling that something is wrong," noun....

(I am editing this to add that I see what you meant now by the second example!)

I need to change these b/c my focus is on vocab, and I teach ELLs who will be confused by these mismatches. Would you be able to send me an editable copy of this item? It's otherwise ideal for me and I am excited to use it.

Thanks!
October 6, 2012
Mrs. R.  (TpT Seller)
Yes, I can. My email is marykayr@mchsi.com. If you email me your address I will send you the Word copy. Thank you :)

Hi I just wanted to let you know that your Thanksgiving Math lesson Gr3-5 samples are word documents that you can just click on the word "Sample" and delete it. I wasn't sure if you knew that. Let me know if you need help figuring out a way to do it so that the word "Sample" couldn't be removed.
