Hi Christina! I wouldn't say that there is a writing unit that really goes with the mental images unit, since visualizing lends itself to drawing pictures. But...Unit 2 (Personal Narratives) and Unit 6 (Fairy Tale Writing) really focus on having the kids add details to their writing, so I could see either of those being used with the mental images unit. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have other questions. :)

HI,
LOVE your K writing units :-)

I just bought the "visualizing" reading strat one and had ? on the others.
What materials / books are needed for the other strategies? Are they books that most would have in their class or do you need to find the books. I know the "visualzing" one had poems you can find online so that was easy. THANKS for all your hard word

Ms Lilypad
Ms Lilypad  (TpT Seller)
Hi Patty, so glad you like the writing units!

For the other reading comprehension units, the lessons don't necessarily specify one text (they give suggested lists of texts that teachers would commonly have in classrooms). I also describe what kind of text you would need (i.e. a fairy tale that has a problem in the story) so that you can easily pick something from the books that you already have.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have other questions. :)

Hi Julie, I'm so sorry you're having trouble printing the pages. I would try two things - first, make sure you're using the latest version of Adobe Reader (if not, update it), and second, try using the printing feature that's called "fit to page." If neither of those things work, you can contact TpT support here: https://support.teacherspayteachers.com/Report-An-Issue.html. They are wonderful about resolving these types of issues. I hope that helps, and sorry again about your printing trouble!

Hi Cat,

Sorry about the printing issue - I do wish that the "I can" statements could be larger. Unfortunately, there's not much room since the posters have the visual and the standard on them. I'd recommend enlarging them and printing them on bigger paper - you can do this at an office supply store, maybe just for the posters you use most.

Or, if you'd like, I could customize the posters for you (i.e. take out the visual, standard, or border to make more room for the "I can" statement). I'm not taking custom orders now but will be starting to do so in June. You can email me at lilypadlittles@gmail.com if you have questions about that.

Thanks!

Erin L. re: Kindergarten Common Core Writing Unit 1 {Introduction to the Writer's Workshop}
I'd like to piggy-back on the question about how "basic" this program starts. Most of our students do not recognize letters when they begin K. Does this program include lessons that teach how to account for that (using linking chart, listening for sounds, labeling pictures, LEADING to using HFW's and phonetic spelling to make sentences), or are those steps assumed to be part of other instruction?

So all of the units actually include work with nonfiction, so that the kiddos have practice with it throughout the year. Each unit teaches students how to apply comprehension strategies to both fiction and nonfiction texts in different ways. Also, each unit teaches a different set of skills with nonfiction, but I'd say that right now Units 4-6 might be most helpful to you. I hope that's helpful, but let me know if you have more questions!

Hi! I'm going to try to answer both of your questions here. I don't have lessons on the individual Common Core standards, but if you're using my Reading Workshop curriculum, in March (or earlier) I will be posting a shared reading guide to teaching the standards that will go along with the units. That might be helpful; sorry it won't be ready any sooner!

As for the guided reading groups, if you're using the reading workshop curriculum, I'd recommend reinforcing the same skills in your guided reading groups. For example, if the reading workshop lesson teaches students to think of the main idea of a section after reading it, you could practice that same skill with a text at students' instructional level during guided reading. Does that make sense? Let me know if there's anything else I can help with! :)

Hi! I should have the next unit (2) done near the end of November. Units 3-4 by the end of December, and hopefully the rest of the units (there will be 7 total) done by the end of February.

I do plan on doing a writer's workshop series, as well! Some customers are waiting on a 1st grade writing series, so I will be working on that after the 2nd grade reading series is done. However, I hope to have a 2nd grade writing curriculum finished by the start of the next school year. Hope that helps! Thanks for your interest! :)

I am going to be purchasing these units for multiple teachers using district funds. Do you accept purchase orders? Or just credit cards?

Hi Brandy! You sure can use a purchase order! All you do is select the number of licenses you need for each product, and then click "add to cart." Go to your cart, and click on "Checkout." At that point, you'll see a page with the total charges; click "Next." On the following screen, there will be an option on the bottom that says "Pay by School Purchase Order." Hope that helps!! Let me know if you have other questions. :)

So glad to hear you like it!! I should be able to have the next one out in mid to late November. And then after the holidays, several more, as well. If you're following my store, you'll get notifications when a new unit comes out. Thanks for your purchase! :)

hello! Another question for you-about how long would each lesson in your unit take? I know that can probably vary widely but I just want to make sure it fits into the time frame of my day. thanks!!

Hi! The lessons do vary in length (some of them you read an entire book with, but some just a part of a book). I would say that they can take anywhere from 10-20 minutes. Hope that helps! :)

Hi! I have purchased both Unit 1 of your Readers/Writers Workshop packets. I would love to see your daily schedule as to fitting it all in. Is there a place you have it posted?

Hi! Thanks for your purchases! I no longer teach Kindergarten (I assume that's what you teach), but I can send you a copy of what my schedule used to be like when I used those units. Leave your email address for me here and I would be happy to send it to you!

Hi, I was wondering does any of your writing pages include lines with dots? I downloaded the preview and it does not have the middle line. Thanks.

Hi - they do not have the line in the middle. If you do purchase it, you can certainly use any other kind of writing paper you may have with the lessons! Let me know if you have other questions :)

Hello! Do your lessons suggest specific books and align with certain books? Is it possible to use my own texts or do the lessons/printables only correlate with specific titles? Thanks!!!

Hi Jennifer! Each unit comes with a list of suggested texts. Then, each lesson tells you what type of text to use (fairy tale, nonfiction about animals, etc.). So although I include suggestions, it's set up so that teachers can use the books they have in their own classroom. Let me know if you have other questions! :)

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm a dual language (English/Spanish) classroom teacher. I've taught PreK through 2nd grade in a variety of school settings.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I think that building a classroom community is so important. When kids feel safe and know that the people in their classroom care about them, they're more invested in their learning!
