I recently purchased the product: Mixed Numbers for Interactive Math Notebooks from you. I was using it in class today and a student found an error on the Reference Sheet that we were gluing into our notebook. On the bottom half of the page, the definition was incorrect. You have the words denominator and numerator turned around. I was wondering if you could edit that page and then I could download it again? I really like your products! Thank you for your hard work!

I am getting ready to purchase your internet activities that relate to the 3rd Grade CCGPS here in Georgia.

Diane,

Yes, when I taught 3rd Grade in GA, we taught Ancient Greece as the "root of democracy", and so there are questions and websites in there that deal with the development of democracy, countries that have democracies etc. If you are looking for something deeper on democracy, I'd be happy to develop one, but I couldn't do it until August 20th, as I am currently on a road trip with limited internet (which makes it hard to develop an internet scavenger hunt, lol!).

Hello!

I have used it in a variety of ways. In one of my past schools, we had a school network, so I posted it on the in-school network. Another time, I e-mailed it to each students' e-mail address. I have also used it in a one-computer classroom, where I simply had it in a folder on the desktop. This year, my students use Edmodo, so I post them to our classroom space there.

You are free to place it anywhere that is NOT public (For example, you may not list them on your class blog), but that your students may access.

I hope this clarifies.

I am interested in your project but I am unfamiliar with glogsters. I would like to purchase the power point and the packet that students fill out along with the power point. If I purchase this item does it come with the power point and the packet? Can you tell me a little bit about glogsters? Is it a service that I would need to purchase?

Raki's Rad Resources  (TpT Seller)
Glogster is a free website where students can create online posters called glogsters. The site is http://edu.glogster.com/. They are simple and easy to create. This project could be done - with a few slight tweaks - with regular posters, but it is more impactful with glogsters because students can add video clips and can link their glogsters together, creating a mini-website.

The Exploring Africa Unit includes the PowerPoint , the packet, the project and the mask craftivity. The PowerPoint just includes the Power Point alone. The Packet just includes the packet and the project.

I hope this better explains. Please feel free to e-mail me at hlraki@hotmail.com with any further questions.

No, the easiest way is to add text boxes. Be sure to make your text boxes "in front of text" so that they will be able to be made moveable. I hadn't added text boxes, because I originally put this up after a request to be able to add pictures to it. Now I'm thinking maybe I need to put them in. If I get to it, I'll try to upload a version with text boxes this evening. Thank you for bringing to my attention that this might be needed.

Are there specific lessons with this packet? I was wondering if it was something one of my paras could follow?
March 7, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Raki's Rad Resources
Raki's Rad Resources  (TpT Seller)
The packets walk the kids through the steps of the writing process in a simplified way - a brainstorming map, a place to draft, a checklist to look for editing & revising mistakes, a place to conference with a partner and a place to conference with their teacher. Each routine is repeated for the 9 prompts, so that kids get used to each part of the writing process.

I think it could easily be left with a para. I designed it to use as an individual writing station for my 1st graders and trained them to work through all the steps and then ask for a conference.

Try this Free Information Prompt to see if it would work for your paras in your classroom.

Sheila,

I'm so sorry for the mixup. My husband and I are busily splitting our store so that all of the foreign language resources (French, Spanish and Arabic) will be located in a separate TPT store called Raki's Rad Language Resources - http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Rakis-Rad-Language-Resources. I am sure you can find what you are looking for in this separate store.

How would I use this? I don't have any student response system? Is there an online SRS or would I need to have them write the answers?

Without a student response system, students would need to record their answers on paper. I have personally used it both ways.

PrepToon - Bring Math to Life using visuals  (TpT Seller) re: Problem Solving Path - Grade 3/ Year 4 - Month 5
Hi,

I'm interested in word problems that adhere to Common Core 6th grade EE and NS. The word problem should be a story close to real life that children will find practical and can relate to. My plan is to show these problems visually. Do you have a set that caters to these requirements, or can you create them for us? Let us know at rjeagle@rjeagle.com.

Thanks
Joseph

Hi Joseph,

I don't have anything for 6th grade yet, but it is in the plans to be created. I probably won't get to them until summer. Thank you for your interest.

Donna,

At this point, I do not have an editable version available on TPT. However, if you e-mail me at hlraki@hotmail.com, I would be happy to discuss the possibility of having this available for you.

Big difference between 1st and 6th graders. What grade is this most geared towards? What grade were you teaching when this was created?

I was teaching 3rd grade when I created this project, and I don't usually put this large of a range on my listings, but my son's first grade teacher begged me for this because it was exactly what she was looking for. Another friend of mine uses it as a review for her 6th graders at the beginning of each school year. So as you can see, it was a hard product for me to put a range on. If you have the time, feel free to download the preview file, it shows exactly what is on each page and should help you gauge if it is the right level for your students.

Thanks for taking the time to ask a question.
Happy Holidays!

Buyer re: Problem Solving Path - Grade 4/ Year 5 - One Month for Free
Hi Heidi -- I started using this with my class, and we just love it. I was wondering, though, why the number of points the students can earn is 15 points, but the score is reported out of 10 points. The front cover suggests that the total score for each problem should be 10, also. I "fudged" the points for the different sections a little to get them to equal 10. Just wanted to make sure you knew about the discrepancy. It's a great idea for problem solving, no matter how many points the questions are worth! Thanks again!

Kim,
Thank you for your question. I think this may be an issue of the font making the 3 look like an 8. Each problem should be scored out of 10 points - 2 points for creating a plan, 4 points for working out the problem and showing each step, 3 points for explaining the why their answer is reasonable, and 1 point for having the correct answer. I hope this clarifies. Please feel free to ask for additional clarification by e-mailing me at hlraki@hotmail.com

Buyer re: Animal Characteristic Centers
I ordered this and have been using this in my classroom. The students are enjoying it, but I do have a question. Under the one about skin coverings, one of the lables is shell, there are no animals pictured that have a shell. The topic of how many legs doesn't have a picture of an animal with 8 legs to go under the label of eight legs. Is there something I am missing?

Thank you for your question. There is nothing in those sections on purpose. Whenever I do sorts, I try to talk to my kids about the fact that although there is a category, that doesn't automatically mean something will fall there. This prepares them for the type of thinking that goes into "all of the above" and "none of the above" questions that comes up on my standardized tests, as well as many real world situations. Sometimes, during a review, I will ask students to draw in something that might have fit into that empty category.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I currently teach a mixed age class of 3rd and 4th graders at the International School of Morocco. Previously, I have taught 1st grade and 3rd grade, as well as teaching all grade levels in the computer lab at a Title I school in Georgia. I have taught both high income and low-income school students, and find that no matter where I teach, most kids need to look at every problem from 12 different angles. Although it is challenging, it is also incredibly rewarding.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a very hands on teacher, who teaches through brain based learning strategies. I also use arts based learning strategies and SIOP (Sheltered Instruction - for ESOL learners) daily in my classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have been involved with the Math Curriculum Committee, Quarterly Training, the Report Card Committee, and many other committees for my county. I also write units and lesson plans for the county website.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Kennesaw University, and a master's degree in Instruction and Curriculum Design focused in Technology from Grand Canyon University. Through inservices provided by my county, I am also SIOP (Sheltered Instructional Observation Protocol) trained, and have recieved my certification in ESOL.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In addition to being a teacher, I am also a wife, and a mother of three boys - born in 2004, 2007 and 2011.
