No password is needed to save the file to the flash drive. I get this question a lot from Mac users. Just make sure that you are opening the pdf in Adobe Reader and not preview. This will correct your problem.

Hi Molly,

Math notebooks are something that I am considering. As far as the notebooks are concerned, I introduce a lot of the standards at the beginning of the year and spiral them all year. This blog post might help for how I started my notebooks.

Hi Nicole,

Another teacher in my district told me about your 3rd Grade Reader's Notebook (and she couldn't believe how well they lined up with our curriculum). I just started it with my last unit and LOVED it. I told the other teachers here at my school they should buy it too. I was wondering if you had any pages on cause and effect? We teach a comprehension strategy along with a metacognitive strategy in our units and next week we are making connections and cause and effect. Please let me know!

Thank you,

Hi Nicole!
I am an sped teacher. My kids reading level vary from end of kindergarten to end of 2nd grade. However, they will be in 3rd and 4th grade. I feel like I need to increase the structure of my time with them and I think your interactive notebook maybe exactly what I need. Most of my kids are included during whole group instruction and this will be done during their time with me. Before purchasing the product I would like to know how long, in average, does it take to do each skill. I am trying to figure out if it is manageable or not, I do not want to spend a lot of time with them, trying to explain how and what to write every time we introduce a new skill. I was also wondering which set would be more beneficial to purchase. This will be used during their guided reading time, about 30 minutes daily.
Thank you,
Juliana

Hi Juliana,

I am not sure if this product is something you would want to use or not. It does take some time and depending on your students, it may take more time than you are willing to invest. Interactive notebooks are wonderful because they solidify learning. My suggestion with your time constraints would be to look at my Flippin' through the Common Core Flip Flaps. They are designed for 3rd-5th grade and I think they would be more conducive to your students' needs.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

I know this is not really the place for this. But...April is child abuse awareness month. As a teacher, I've had to report suspected child abuse. But it never hit as close to home as it did this month when I found out that my cousin's daughter was assaulted by a family member we all liked and trusted. I am trying to raise $400.00 to give to Safe Haven in Martinsburg, WV which is a shelter and advocacy center for abused children. I can create a playground with used tires for that. I am donating all the money I make this month to Safe Haven. I was hoping that you might mention this on your blog so that I can get more sales. I will post a copy of my sales and a copy of my donation receipt. THank you, Heather

A few weeks ago I was looking at your interactive notebooks. I thought I saw one for 3rd grade for math. When I went back to buy it, I couldn't find it. I saw the Language and Reading ones, which I have and LOVE and was really wanting the math one too. Is there anyway I could still purchase it from you? Or did I originally dream it up that you ever even had one? Thanks for putting your stuff on here! I love it!

I loaded Adobe on my new computer so it would use that instead of preview on the MacBook. It will right the page you a reviewing but will then return the page to the left. It is making it difficult to scroll through pages and returns the previous page to the side when you move to a new page always asking for author password. I will try TPT help but the original document must be sideways. Thanks, working hard on implementing all of your reading and language 4-5 notebooks during the end of the year before we start using them next year! Students are taking a trial run Common Core test through Smarter Balance in May without even covering the standards this year!

Nicole Shelby
Nicole Shelby  (TpT Seller)
Yes, some of the pages are sideways in the original document. I work in Powerpoint and I have to choose either landscape or portrait. Some of the photos needed to show both pages of the notebook, but that wouldn't fit in the portrait page where it was readable.

Good luck with your trial run with testing! If it was like our first year of testing the CCSS, it was tough, but the kids made it through. I love the CCSS! I think you will as well. They are just so much more fluid than the state standards we used to use.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks for all your hard work on the language and reading notebooks. I purchased all of them for 4th and 5th grade. We are working on them in a combo class to introduce the standards we will be using next year. Some of the notebook examples allow me to right the pages so I can view them on my computer instead of being sideways but some require a password. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi Janet,

Thank you so much for your kind words! I hope that your kinds love the notebooks as much as my students do. :) To answer your question, I think you should be able to turn the pages in Adobe by clicking on "view" and then "rotate view" and from there choose which way you want the pages turned. That's really the only way I know to turn the pages. If this isn't working for you, I would suggest putting in a ticket with TpT technical support and maybe they can give you some other options because I truly don't know of any other way. I really do hope this helps solve the issue.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Just bought your Greek Mythology Stories and Activities--do you have answer sheets available for this wonderful product--would certainly make life easier when grading. Also--on the pg.10 The Golden Touch/The Legend of King Midas, I realize it appears to be a form of a Venn diagram--not sure how to approach it??

Hi there,

I don't have an answer key as of now because the questions are so open to multiple answers, but I am on Spring Break this week, so I will work on that in the next couple of days and upload the revised file to TpT. You will receive a notification when the file has been updated. Page 10 is a Venn diagram…just looks a little different. I use that to compare and contrast my version of The Golden Touch and The Legend of King Midas from Storyworks. One big difference is that the Storyworks version is a play. :)

Hi Kim,

I checked the file this morning and it opens with no issues, so that tells me that it is some kind of technical issue. The issue that you described is not a question I get often, so I am not exactly sure how to tell you to correct it. The only two things I know to try are:

1) Make sure you have the most current version of Adobe Reader.

2) Try opening TpT in a different browser and download the file.

If neither of the two issues are the culprits, please put in a ticket with TpT technical support and explain your issue. They are wonderful and are actually trained to handle these issues.

I do apologize for the inconvenience. I hope that one of the solutions help.

Hi Nicole,
I purchased both your second grade reading and language arts notebook but find that the printed pages are too big for my composition notebooks (purchased from Target and Office Depot). I need to reduce the sizes to fit. (I'm assuming you're using a composition book since your cover looks like one.) Am I printing this incorrectly? Is there another size feature that I'm missing? BTW- You did a great job on your notebooks! I use them with my class and my students love working with their notebooks.

Nicole Shelby  (TpT Seller)
Hi Margaret,

I did use Composition notebooks and I use them with my students as well. The Composition notebook that I used has the dimensions 9-3/4" x 7-1/2". The problem with printing probably has to do with your printer settings. When printing, try the following:
* choose shrink to print
* click the advance setting and choose "print as image"

These tricks SHOULD work for you. The templates will easily fit in a standard Composition notebook with no trouble and you shouldn't have to reduce the pages when copying.

Thank you so much for your purchase and your kind words. I hope this helps!

What is the difference between this unit and the other greek mythology unit ($13) that you offer? Are all of these activities included in your larger unit?
April 2, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Nicole Shelby
Nicole Shelby  (TpT Seller)
Hi Tara,

The first unit that I created (the cheaper of the two) offers activities that can be used with just about any Greek mythology book or materials you have. It focuses more on the allusions or phrases that are derived from Greek Mythology. The other unit (the more expensive one) is a collection of elementary appropriate myths. I found that as I was searching for Greek myths to use in my classroom, the myths were not appropriate due to the "adult content". There are a few activities included that go along with the materials in this unit, but the major focus of this unit is the stories. I use the units together, but they can both be used a stand alones. The descriptions of each will tell you what is included in each one.

Hope this helps!

I am currently a first year 5th grade teacher and I purchased the Interactive Reading notebook for this school year. My class LOVES it, as do I! In the last couple of months I purchased the Language piece also in preparation for next school year. However, I just found out I am being moved to third grade next school year therefore I spent my money on that language when now the 3rd grade Interactive Notebooks would be what I need. Would it be at all possible to switch without having to purchase again?? Thanks for all you do! Your work is great!

Thanks

Do you have this in print without the Common Core Info?
I teach in Texas and we do not use Common Core.

Hi Michelle.

I do not have my notebooks available without the Common Core Standards listed. If you are thinking of purchasing, I wouldn't recommend them for teachers that do not teach the CCSS. Thanks for your question.

I am interested in purchasing quite a bit of your interactive notebooks. I was wandering if there is a personal email somewhere on your page (maybe I am missing it?) that I can email you, with specifics??

Thanks,

Hi Christine,

Thank you so much for your sweet comments! I do have 1st grade on my to-do list. I actually started last summer and didn't get it finished before school began. I hope to pick it back up once the school year ends.

Thanks,

SO excited to have found your store! I am new to TPT and feel blessed to have found such quality items. I need a 2nd grade interactive notebook. I love the Reading and Language ones you have done, but don't see Math. Have you made one?

Hi Pamela,

I am sorry I am so long responding. I missed this question somehow. Anyway, to answer your question, I have made any math notebooks yet, but they are on my to-do list.

Thanks for asking!

Buyer re: 3rd Grade Language Interactive Notebook (Common Core aligned)
Hi Nicole,

I am very interested in your Language Interactive notebooks, but I am a little confused. The 3rd grade one seems to cover more basic information (nouns, pronouns, verbs, etc...) and your 2nd grade one covers for in-depth information (Collective Nouns, Irregular Plural Nouns, Reflexive Pronouns, etc...). Should I purchase both of them to make sure my kids have the basic structure?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Carla,

I am not sure how to answer this question. These notebooks are aligned to the Common Core Standards. Each notebook addresses the standards for the specific grade level. I recommend if you are teaching the Common Core that you purchase the notebook that addresses your standards. If you are not teaching the Common Core, I wouldn't recommend that you purchase my products as I do not feel that they would completely meet your needs. I hope this makes sense. If not, please contact me at nicoleshelby@hotmail.com. I would be happy to answer any additional questions you may have.

Thanks,
Nicole

I started working on a 1st grade book before school started, but didn't get time to complete it. I haven't worked on it since. I hope to finish it this summer. Thanks for checking!

Hi Nicole! I purchased and printed both of your 2nd grade interactive notebooks and I love them! just wondering about a few of the reading pages.
Is there a "boy" version of the compare/contrast Venn diagram? I just have the Cinderella/Princess version.
After "Determining Importance," is there a girl version of the paper and pencil?
Is there a girl version of the "Super Reader" graphic on the next to last page?

Thanks! I know that some of my kiddos would want the right version so I'd love to have them if they're available.

Hi Amy,

I don't have the gender graphics that you mentioned above. I did include options when it was available, but unfortunately, some of the graphics didn't offer those options. If I do find something that is comparable, I will add it to the file. I am apologize for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
Nicole

I bought your Interactive Notebooks for 2nd grade. I left feedback but wish I had waited until I had used the books more. I LOVE these books. This is some of the best money I ever spent. I can't find a way to revise my feedback but I wanted to at least let you know.

Not yet, but I am working on it. It's just not complete. Hopefully, I will be able to get all of the projects I have started finished by the end of summer.
