Hello. I purchase the Internet Scavenger Hunt, animals, for intermediate grades. I was very dissatisfied with it. I feel the directions were not clear and I thought the actual activity had 3 pages, rather than one page, with a two page answer key.

I would like to have $3 credit toward another purchase from your store. I would be able to give you a good rating if you could do that. I want to give you an opportunity to do so, before rating that product. Thanks very much.

My classroom theme is centered around a book called "Dream Big Little Pig." I'm looking for cute, cartoon pigs dressed as different occupations for my hallway display (I would need to be able to size them up to about a half to 3/4 of a page.) I was thinking an ice skater, doctor, police officer, construction worker, teacher, nurse, scientist, fireman, chef, pilot, zookeeper, and business person. Is this something you could do?

Hello! I am currently looking for someone to help me make lesson plans for ESL students. I am a secondary ESL teacher here in Thailand and it is the first time for me to encounter making a differentiated lesson plan in 3 levels (beginner, intermediate and advance) Their year group is Year 7-9 (ages between 12-16).
If you could spare me your time on making it for me. Please drop me a note anytime.

Buyer re: Internet Scavenger Hunt - Primary Grades - Lights and Shadows
Hi! I was so excited to use this - it fit my unit perfect in my 1:1 classroom. Unfortunately we could not use any of the QR codes because they all linked to flash player. : ( Did you check them with an iPad or iPhone which you suggested using with them? My kids and I were disappointed. Any hints for making them work? I wanted to use the QR version since we are 1:1. Thanks!

Raki's Rad Resources  (TpT Seller)
I'm so sorry that those didn't work out for you. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in the possibilities of iPads I forget about the limitations. I have gone ahead and changed all of the sites on the QR Code versions to non-flash sites. They aren't quite as "gamey", which is what I try to do for the primary scavenger hunts, but they should cover the topic nicely and have answers within the top fold, so that they are more accessible to new readers. Please feel free to re-download the packet.

Also, because of the delay I had in getting these fixed, please feel free to e-mail me at hlraki@hotmail.com and I'll be happy to send you any other scavenger hunt from my store for free.

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. I am thrilled that you have almost everyone that I think I can use to teach social studies this year, with the exception of Democracy. Is it tied in the Ancient Greece activity? If not, would you consider making an activity that would cover these standards? Thank you so much for your wonderful products!

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!). Feel free to e-mail me at hlraki@hotmail.com.

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?

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.

I noticed the same thing ("capitol" instead of "capital" in 3 places on pages 5 and 7) just tonight--not sure if you fixed it but then accidentally re-uploaded the old version? Super cute idea though, thanks!

Hi
I was wondering how to add text to this? I bought it and added textboxes but I thought maybe there was a better way?
Thanks

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.

Buyer re: Primary Writing Journal: Genre Informational
Are there specific lessons with this packet? I was wondering if it was something one of my paras could follow?

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.

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

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.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 1st through 5th grade in both a US and UK curriculum, as well as teaching all grade levels in the computer lab at a Title I school in Georgia, USA. I have taught in the US and Morocco. Currently, I homeschool my own 3 children while we travel the world in our RV. Find out about our adventure at RVing with the Raki's. 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.
