when thinking depth of knowledge(DOK) what level do you think these would correlate to 1, 2, 3, 4? A mixture? more of 1 and 2 or more of 3 and 4? Are there any assessments? When you say centers, how many? Thanks a ton!! This looks great! I am new to 3rd grade and this looks like it will really help.

Do your passages and questions come with an answer key? Looks amazing. I am just beginning CC lessons for the second year and these will definitely save me valuable time. I felt like I was working harder on passages rather than spending time with family or students for that matter!
Thank you for your response and time!

Hi! Yes, some do them do. However, not all of them do. My units aren't complicated or overwhelming. Each unit is very teacher friendly and easy to use. Each unit DOES come with instructions of how to implement and execute each mini lesson or activity. :) hope this helps! :)

I purchased both Really Creepy Stuff and Really Gross Stuff. The creepy file printed with no problem but the gross stuff file won't print. I have tried several times. I am a former tech teacher and know most of the troubleshooting needed on a Mac. I am having no luck. Suggestions? I shared the booger and toilet stories with my class on my whiteboard and they were very grossed out. They loved it!

Denise M. re: Valentine Craftivities for BIG KIDS {CCSS 3rd-5th Grade}
Hi there! I thought you should know that my 3rd graders loved doing these the week of Valentine's Day, so THANK YOU! But, I have a question about the "literal meaning" of the figurative language examples you provided. Isn't the "literal" definition the meaning as it is written (like the Amelia Bedelia books) and the "figurative/nonliteral" definition the message the author is actually trying to convey? When you ask them to provide the "literal" meaning of each of the phrases, should it be the "non-literal" meaning of the phrases? (the point the author is actually trying to get across) So sorry, but I just wanted to be sure for next time I do this!

THANKS SO much for such a great reading pack. More than half of my class is boys and they are going to LOVE this!

Buyer re: Close Reading & Text Based Evidence - Really GROSS Stuff
Hi, thanks for this resource. The passage History of the Toilet was very engaging. In the sentence, 'In England during the Medieval times, royalty would have special holes in the walls of the castle that dumped into the motes'. Did you mean 'moats'? Also, the exclamation marks in that passage don't show up very well.

In the passage GERMS: FRIEND OR FOE? I think Athlete's Foot needs an apostrophe.

In the description it says the product includes "two written examples of each text structure {includes one without highlighted key words, and one with highlighted key words}."
Are these two examples the SAME passage (one highlighted and one without) or are they two different passages?

I purchased the Fictional Narrative packet and the Character - Physical Traits is printing with a BLACK LINE - two really dark ones down the page. Very strange - only on that page. I don't see it on the screen and it didn't do it to anyone but that one. Can you look to see if something is going on with the file that we download on the site? Thank you so much!

Hi there- I just wanted to tell you how much I loved your "Text Structure Posters and lesson resources" packet. I used it with my third grade grade class and they clearly benefited from is. I mentioned it to my Language Arts administrator and she was wondering if she could somehow purchase it so that it could be used district wide. I've never done this before and was wondering if this is even possible for you to sell to a district. I know at check out I can but up to three additional licenses I think, but I am wondering about more than that. I would love to have you reap the rewards of your hard work for such a great product! Let me know-
