Christine Y. re: End of the Year Scoot
Not sure exactly how this works? Do students write their answers on a recording page? Move in groups (partners) and tell their partner the answer? Thanks!

I intended that students would complete the sentence starters by writing them on paper, but I like your idea of using them as conversation starters, too!

We play it like the game Connect Four. Students must find a strategy for getting four in a row while getting practice on reading their sight words. You could set a timer and the player with the most markers on the board when the timer goes off wins the game. I am open to changing the directions for you if you have any suggestions.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful work! In your homophone hunt activity, sentence number 10 requires the word "cent" as the answer. However, the homophone card is "sent." Would it be possible to make that correction? Thank you!

There are no pictures. I used the vocabulary from the Journeys third grade basal. All of the skills in the packet are geared towards third grade. I think second could use them , but they are too advanced for first. I'm sorry I couldn't help. Happy Thanksgiving!

Lisa F. re: Collective Nouns Activities Packet
Mary, Thank you for your quick response after being contacted. Now that I look, I see the comment on Page 3. It is hard for us to know that on the preview pages. Also, since most teachers want to use these cards in their centers for a particular purpose, I usually do not read the seller's directions. Your illustrations are so nice that I would love to see all cards have the illustrations so that the students would not "ruin" the cards made of cardstock. No need for the two free items. The communication and explanation is what I needed. Please consider, though, putting illustrations on all your cards. You were very generous to provide so many and with such variety. Thank you.
