Heather,
I discovered your website my first year teaching and have gradually been implementing different activities from your site. Currently, I am trying to incorporate more artists/art as we lack that at school. You used to have links to the artists and the kids art samples from various artists. Do you have this available somewhere for art inspired projects? Thanks.

Hi! I have been using your poetry unit for years, however, I have lost the portion where two adults have to sign off on the students' project and write a comment and the rubric. I just downloaded the new common core self-reflection sheet and was hoping the rubric was included, but it wasn't. Do you still happen to have these pieces available? The reflection is one of my (and my students') favorite part of this project and rubric sure keeps them on track! Thanks!

Dear Mrs. Renz,

I noticed two errors on your math posters so far. On the "Decimal" poster there is no hundredths place - it says thousandths instead. Also, on "Volume" the dimensions of the cube don't match the picture - 3x3x3 instead of 3x3x2. Please let me know if you can make the corrections so I can re-download.

Thank you for all of the great work you have done for so many years (way before TpT.)

I am considering purchasing your 'daily dose' math vocab pp. I had a question I was hoping you could answer beforehand however. Being a fairly new teacher I haven't used a math vocab or ABC journal as of yet and was wondering how to use the word a day that includes an example and sketch when I haven't taught it yet? Of course they could finish the following day but I was hoping to use this as an entry/self guided task and wasn't sure how to address the word a day pace especially with a 99% 2nd language population. Any insights would sure be appreciated.
November 17, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Mrs Renz Class
Mrs Renz Class  (TpT Seller)
The Daily Dose is designed so you get to decide what word to focus on each day. It is a perfect morning starter to get students ready to learn more about the word (or review a word you've just learned). The choice is up to you but once students get the pattern of how it works, it will be a great way to begin the day and students will enjoy the predictability of the program. Learning the vocabulary is super important, especially for second language learners. Directly teaching the words will help so much! Remember, YOU decide the pace. I included a PPT slide that says, "Today's Word Is..." so you don't have to use it every day if you want. Having the visual posters will also really help to reinforce the words for your students. I'd suggest getting one slide show and trying it. I think you'll like the program. :)

I was wondering if this program can double as a spelling program. Based on your experience, do you think it can work for that purpose, too? If so, what are your recommendations for making it work successfully?
Also, does this program require a significant amount of time each day for practice? Or will a few minutes a day suffice? (I'm asking because my Literacy/ Language Arts block is very short.)

Hi there. I'm glad you like my teaching materials. :) I have used the Word Masters (WM) words as challenge words for my regular spelling program (Sitton). The Sitton program that focuses on spelling correctly in everyday writing so the WM words were for challenge/enrichment for all students if they could use the words in their writing. You can have students practice for whatever length of time you feel they need. You'll be able to judge that once you've given a few tests. You can also have students practice the word stems as part of their weekly homework. It's pretty flexible and you are in control of how it runs. :)

I have a class with 38 kids! (I teach music, so don't panic!), but I'd like to use the Class list pages for all of my classes and my largest is 38. Could I have an editable PDF of the Class List page or a template with 38 student spaces? I read your response to ssaraf and see that you intend to repost with more editable files. That excites me, but I would love if you could add this or email it to me.

Thanks!

Hi Tiffany. 38 is still a lot of students! :) I will work tomorrow to add a class list with space for 40 students (just in case you get a few new ones yikes) and I'll add it to the set. I'm working on the set right now! I hope to have the revised set with your request posted by tomorrow night. :) My email is mrsrenzteaches@mail.com if you want to email me. ~Heather

I have purchased the Mastery Club. However, I do not see the actual forms (information sheets) the students fill out to do the challenges. Maybe I haven't looked at everything or just missed it. What folder is this under? Thanks.

Are you looking for the recording sheets that students use to write their answers? Look for this file name: mc-student-recording-worksheets.pdf :)

Buyer re: Independent Poetry Unit, Poetry Reflection & Website Access: 6 Week Unit Project
Hi Mrs. Renz. Thank you for creating this unit. I purchased it and am going to use it starting Monday, September 2 (we started school 2 weeks ago) There is a mistake on the poster for :Ingredients of a Poem" The second page (the one divided into fourths) has "Mood" in two squares. I think one of them should be titled "Purpose". There is no way for me to change this on the one I purchased. Would it be possible for you to email a corrected copy? I am not sure how to email you and give you my email address in a less public forum. I will check back for your reply. And...off topic...I am a native Oregonian...lived for several years I Sister and worked in Redmond (not as a teacher) The teachers at my school here in Southern California love your teacher website :)

These would be great to use for my volunteer calendar. Are these editable? Can I type in the day boxes or would I have to print out and write on?

9/7/13 Update! I'm happy to say I just uploaded the calendar set in EDITABLE Pdf format so YES, you can now type into the boxes and print the cute calendar pages! I also added a "Year at a Glance" calendar to the set. Download the product preview to see how it works! It's pretty cool.

Yes I will make a 6th grade set but it may take a bit to get it online - maybe mid year.

Hi, its me again! ;) First of all, I am sooo glad I bought this! I am in my second week of implementing this in my classroom, and it is a hit! My students love it! I was wondering if it was possible to get the rent slips as an editable file? My rent list is a little different... Thanks!

Hello Mrs. Renz, I have been looking for an economy unit for a long time. I love your unit! I teach at a Spanish immersion school and I would like to use the materials but I need them in Spanish. Have you ever thought of getting them translated so that all of the Spanish teachers out there could benefit from your hard work? I would like to help you translate the materials.

Hi there. First of all, thanks for your purchase. :) Can you double check the set? There are Word editable documents included. One is called "Lesson Plan Template 1 page *Editable* no owls" and the other is called "Lesson Plan Template 2 page *Editable* no owls". I know how important digital copies are. Please email me if you have trouble finding them at mrsrenzteaches@gmail.com Thanks!

Hi! Thank you so much!! I will probably purchase the package soon because we are starting with the standards 4.NBT.1-4 and you have some pics that I'd like to begin getting laminated and hung up in my class. I will be checking back in a few days, though because I want to get that new one up. My students struggled with that concept last year and it will be great to have a visual that they can refer to throughout this unit. Thank you for being so helpful! :-)

Sounds good! There are so many vocab words associated with math that students need to understand so they can solve problems and apply skills that use them. I directly taught math vocabulary and it made a HUGE difference in our test scores. :) Have a great year!

This is going to date me. I hope you are the same Mrs. Renz I followed about 5 years ago. It was a web page called Mrs. Renz 4th Grade Daily oral Geography. I loved the pages. I used them that entire year I taught Geography. I am now teaching it again. Would happen to have those pages? I would love a copy or maybe you could make them into a packet on here. I would buy it instantly!
Thanks

Thanks again so much!! I really think I want to get your set. I have all of the standards on posters which will go on my "I Can" Wall, however, on the Math word wall, I would like math examples/words/descriptions to match the standard/description which is on the "I Can" wall. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks! :)

I don't currently have "multiplicative comparison" in the set but I will make one! Give me a few days to add it to all the spots in the set. :) If you decide to purchase the set before then, you'll get a notification that I've modified and revised the set so you can download the revision. All words in the set have standard numbers listed beside them, too, and are also sorted by domain in a huge table. I am really happy with math vocab set. This is one of the domain slide shows http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Daily-Dose-of-Math-Vocabulary-PPT-Slideshow-Posters-4th-CCSS-M-OA-OperAlgebra-827610 I have 2 more domains to make. They're super cool, too.

Update: 8/22 9 pm The new poster "multiplicative comparison" has been added to the set! Enjoy!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm in my 34th year of teaching and I LOVE my job! I am an Academic Achievement Specialist for my district, assisting teachers with implementation of Common Core Math. I've mostly taught fourth grade but over the course of my career, I've also taught fifth and sixth grades, first grade, middle school math, at-risk high schoolers, journalism and computers. I love creating teaching materials and have shared with other teachers for the past 13 years through my classroom website. Peek at my website, Mrs. Renz' Fourth Grade Class, to see my work. www.mrsrenz.net

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a projects-based kind of teacher and connect standards to students' lives so they gain deeper understanding and enjoy learning. I LOVE teaching math and my goal is to integrate technology as much as possible. Using technology helps me differentiate for my students and meet the standards at the same time. In the classroom, I use my SMART board all day long and strive to connect each lesson with everyday life. I teach all students as if they are talented and gifted and challenge them to think critically. I LOVE my job!
