Hi Rachel,

I was wondering if it was possible to purchase just the task cards of your converting measurement unit? Thanks!

Hi there,

Thank your for your interest in the measurement unit. At this time the task cards are only available as part of the whole unit. It makes it difficult to start separating out parts of a unit because once I start doing it for one person, than that opens it up to everyone asking for specific parts. This becomes very time consuming to do so. Hope you understand! Thanks

I recently purchased your Teaching NonFiction Reading Bundle. You have included a flipchart for the SMARTboard, which unfortunately I do not have. I was working with the head of our tech department to convert this file to ActivInspire (she said this is possible to do). However, after she gets to 20% conversion, it stops. I am wondering if you have heard of other people who have had this same problem? Do you have a way to convert it for me and send it to my school email?

Thanks for your help. I am excited to use this bundle!!

Hi Jessica! I honestly do not know if the conversion has worked or not. I have not heard one way or the other from other buyers. Unfortunately, I would need the ActivInspire software on my computer in order to covert it, and I don't have it. I'm sorry! Perhaps you could google a solution. It seems that if it starts downloading it, you should be able to finish it. Sorry I can't offer better assistance. Maybe the TpT Help Desk could help you as well

Barbara K. re: Early European Explorers: The Age of Exploration {Social Studies Unit}
I LOVE this unit and am planning to use it this quarter. I wish that it had two things:
1. A blank world map that we could fill in for our bulletin board (one that's possibly set up to print on 2-4 8x10 pages);
2. The Smart Board slides as separate slides which those of us without smart boards could still use with power point or something similar.

Do you have either of these things, and if so, could they be emailed to me so I could make full use of this unit?! It sure would help me out!

Hi there.

Glad you love the unit. Unfortunately I do not have the type of program that would great a world map as large as you are looking for.

I do however have a PDF of the the slide images for the SMARTBoard slides. Because they are images, they will lose the interactive features that come with the SMARTBoard, but it will at least give you an idea of what each slide looks like.

If you would like the PDF file, please email me at Rachael.Parlett@gmail.com

Thanks!

Hi there! I purchased your Revolutionary War packet, and boy do I love it! So many activities and such detailed plans, great job! But I do have one comment. I would love to use the slides that are talked about in the lesson plans, but we don't have smart boards at our school, and therefore don't have the program to open it and just see what these slides look like. A Word slideshow or even just a PDF format for users to see what the slides look like would be awesome. I could easily recreate them for my own personal use in the classroom to go along with the lessons if I could see them. Or, maybe I can download the smart board program somehow without having one? Since we don't, I've never really looked into those programs.

(Edited) Oh I see now that other people have had the same question. Guess there is more of us without a smart board than I thought ha! ;-) I will try to email you. Thanks again.

The mistake is on Lesson 3, the slide that tells the points of view. On the third person point of view (this the smart board unit), the text is: The story is told by someone outside of the story. We only can only know what the characters say and do, not what they think or feel.

Hey,

I just purchased the Measurement Conversions packet that you have. It looks like a great packet BUT I didn't realize that is was a SMARTboard thing. I see that you have other resources that go along with the SMARTboard slides but I wont be able to use it because I don't have a SMARTboard. Is there another way to save the slides so that I can open them differently? or can I get my money back somehow?

Hi there.

I'm sorry that you are unable to use the Smartboard portion of this product, but I did indicate in the description of product that it included a Smartboard file and to not purchase the product if you did not have access to one. Unfortunately, I can not issue a refund because as a digital download, you already have the product on you computer. Its not something you can return. What I can do is email you the images of each slide to give you an idea of what they look like to help you plan for your lesson. If this is something you would like, please email me at Rachael.parlett@Gmail.com.

Hi there!

You will need to open the zip file and "extract" all of the files inside. You can usually do this by right clicking on the zip file. You will then need to save the files somewhere on your computer. Without me being in front of your computer, it is hard for me to say exactly what you might be doing wrong in trying it open it. If you continue to have issues, I recommend contacting the help center. They are very good at walking you through the trouble shooting. Let me know how you make out! Thanks

Hi there!

The notebook file is what opens the SMARTBoard slides. If you do not have the notebook software installed on your computer, then it will not open the file. Please make sure you have this software correctly installed on your computer, first. The notebook file does not depend on whether your computer has XP or any other windows update.

Let me know if you DO have the notebook software installed on your computer and are still having issues opening it.

Hi. Unfortunately I will not be separating out the unit at this time. If I start doing that for one person, then I open it up to other buyers to select only the portions of a unit that they want, then it becomes very time consuming to separate out and upload on TpT. If the SMARTBoard is the only thing holding you back from being able to use the whole unit, I do have images of each SMARTBoard slide that I can email to you. I have had other buyers who haven't been able to use the SMARTBoard portion, but were able to use the images of each slide by inserting them into a PPT. If this is something you are interested in, then let me know. I hope you understand. Thanks!

Buyer re: Getting Your Students Started with Literature Circles
Hi there! This looks fantastic!! It's listed for 4-6 grades. What's the chances that you're able to tweak it a little for third graders?
**ooops, I just noticed a question like this one further down. So sorry!! Any other tips from working with 3rd graders?
March 7, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Rachael Parlett  (TpT Seller)
Hi there!

I think that if you are going to use this in 3rd grade you would definitely want to start out with picture books (as I mentioned in the other person's question). You might even want to read the book together as a class and then have students meet in groups and all discuss the same book. This would make it easy for you to monitor group discussion.

When I used this in 3rd grade, I also spent a lot more time modeling each literature circle job. In the unit, I have included a sheet that each student fills out in preparation for their group discussion. I would spend a good amount of time modeling how to fill out each one.

Another thing that I tried was I invited some students up for lunch and had them do a literature circle while I video taped them. I made sure that the students that I chose to come up were my more advanced readers. I also participated in the lit. circle as a "student." Then, I was able to show the rest of the class the video as a good model of what the lit. circle should look like.

Hope these tips help! Let me know if you have any other questions! thanks!

Hello!

I have never worked with a MacBook Air, so I'm not exactly sure how they work. However, the screenshot file (which is a file showing the images of the SMARTBoard slides) should just open like any other PDF (like all the other documents in the file). However, if you are trying to open the actual SMARTBoard slides themselves, you must have the notebook software installed on your computer in order for them to work on your computer. That is the only way they will open.

Hi there. There a couple of things that you can try. I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to do to print it, but these suggestions have helped people in the past..

Here are the suggestions:
1) Make sure you have the most updated version of Adobe reader.

2) After downloading the file onto your computer, save it in any location. Then, open Adobe reader and open the document directly from adobe, not the location you saved it in.

Mrs Padak  (TpT Seller) re: American Revolutionary War Complete Unit
This isn't really a question...

I have purchased your Explorers and American Revolution Unit, and I must say they are the best social studies units I have ever purchased!! I know you are having a baby soon and are not taking requests, but I would love to purchase more social studies units from you in the future.
Thanks so much!

Hi here! I'm so glad you love the units!

I definitely plan on making more units in the future once I start creating again after the baby is born. Stay tuned! :)

Thanks for your kind words!

Hi,
I purchased your new Revolutionary War unit. I am printing all of it out right now. I found part 2 of lesson 12 for the folders. I cannot seem to see part 1. Can you help me out with that?

Also, thank you so much for all of your lessons!!! I have already taught Force and Motion and the Explorers unit. I purchased the Revolutionary War unit and the Measuring Matter unit. The students love it and so do I!

I'm glad you are loving the units! Thanks for your purchases!

Hi Rachel,
I was wondering if you could make the page with the popcorn container and the popcorn pieces editable. I would be willing to pay for that resource.
Thanks,

Buyer re: "Blast off to Math" - 5 Centers to Use at the Beginning of the School Year
Hi! I'm a student teacher and just wondering....do you do the same centers for just a week? Do they mind returning to a station? Thanks for the help and this great download. Can't wait to use in my own classroom :)

Hi there!
I used these centers at the beginning of the school year to introduce/ review major math concepts. I actually had them rotate through all the centers in one day. They only went to the center once. You could spread the centers over a whole week however and have them only do one center a day. I don't think you would want to have them do the centers more than once.

hope this helps! Enjoy!

Some of us are having difficulty printing your wonderful product. It downloads but adobe won't let me print it. Is there special directions needed to download?

Hi there. There a couple of things that you can try. I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to do to print it, but these suggestions have helped people in the past..

Here are the suggestions:
1) Make sure you have the most updated version of Adobe reader.

2) After downloading the file onto your computer, save it in any location. Then, open Adobe reader and open the document directly from adobe, not the location you saved it in.

let me know if you continue to have problems. Thanks

Hello,

I am looking at purchasing one of your units: Teaching Non-Fiction Reading (A Comprehensive Unit On Skills and Strategies) and I was wondering what version of Smartboard software you have? I would hate to buy your lessons and then not be able to use them. :(

Thanks!

Hi Rachael,
I love your prefix/suffix document. I am wondering if you would be able to make one with a nautical theme and if you could add suffix -ess (like hostess, actress).
Thank you, Diana Davis

Hi Diana!

Unfortunately right now I am not taking requests. I due to have a baby in the next couple of weeks and I'm working hard to finish up other projects that I already have started. I do have an ocean themed prefix/suffix set already made - not sure if that would work for your nautical one.

Here's the link: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/31-Prefix-and-Suffix-Mini-Posters-with-Definitions-OceanTheme-263136

Hope you understand! Thanks

Hi Erica,
