Hi Kylie,

I am putting together a booklet for my students for next term. I'd love to include your 4H strategy bookmarks in the booklet. I'm not sure of the copyright process for this - would you be happy for me to include the bookmarks provided I remove them before sharing the resource with other teachers?

Thanks for your work on these resources - they look great!

Blessings,
Ali

Hi Ali

Which particular ones are you wishing to include? I have several different versions. This version here is a freebie, so I am happy for you to include that: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/4H-Reading-Strategy-bookmarks-freebie-1022027

Maybe you could just include the link as a reference in your teacher version?

Thanks for the lovely feedback - it's made my day :)

Hello Kylie,

A quick question. Did you ever teach at Gatton SS? In 1989 I spent a couple of weeks doing my Grade 10 work experience with a Kylie Meyer. She wrote me a wonderful reference (which I still have), and I went on to spend 15 years in the classroom (high school and middle school).

Certainly. Most of my clip art that I use is purchased off TPT or the ones in my avatar and a lot in my products are custom made for me by Iva at esty nahhan73. Her work is really great. I just tell her what project I am working on and she whips up my clip art sets for me quickly. Here is the link to her shop https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/nahhan73?section_id=10804022 Check out her graphic art on my blog http://ripperresources.blogspot.com.au/
And please let her know that I sent you :) Kylie

Thanks for answering my question on printing in color...my pdf file shows up in color, so I'll have to check the printer program at school. (You never know how they've set the printers for the school year!!!) Also, I think I accidentally hit another button on your reply that said "Report inappropriate content." Please know that was totally accidental....I appreciate your getting back to me, and once again, I LOVE THE RECIPROCAL Math cards!

Kylie,
Thank you for pinning my product today and for becoming my newest follower. More importantly I want to thank you for your encouraging words about my ESL products. I have taught adult ESL for about 25 years now. I love my job! I have been trying to create a variety of different products here on TpT. Recently I have been feeling that I should stick to what I feel is my area of expertise (ESL). I'm not really sure there is a great demand for ESL products here on TpT, but there are certainly some.

Thank you again for your encouraging words.

I think it is a great product range and I will certainly be referring my student teachers to your work if I teach ESL at uni again :) I was thinking the same thing this morning actually being quite a newbie to TPT myself, whether I should just chug along and post items that I develop for my teaching rather than thinking of whipping up something that "might sell"...Kylie

Kylie,
We sent a message to you regarding your request for use of Karen's Kids images. It was sent on the 25th. Messages to you, at the address you gave us, are returned to us 'undeliverable'. So sorry for the inconvenience. TPT is the only way we have of contacting you. Below is a copy of our note to you. Please let me know if you have any questions.


Hello Kylie,

First I want to thank you for your note. Your project sounds like a wonderful resource for educators. Our office is closed on Saturday and Sunday but I wanted to get back to you as I see your project deadline is approaching. Below are responses to the items in your email relating to commercial use.

PRODUCTS SOLD: Since we joined TPT we have had several inquiries about use of the images on products sold on TPT. Karen's Kids images can be used on just about any personal products and/or school projects, flyers, etc. as long as they are not sold, nor used commercially without a license agreement. Our website has more info on licensing and Use of images.

LICENSE AGREEMENTS: There are 2 types of license agreements for commercial use of Karen's Kids images; a non-profit agreement for use of images by non-profit groups supported by Karen's Kids and a commercial license agreement for use of images by manufacturers, ad agencies and other commercial groups and/or for commercial use. Usually commercial agreements are agreements with large manufacturers, book publishers, clothing companies, etc., and can be pretty intense. They include credit info, term and termination of use, royalty payment info, geographical area of sales, credit notification, etc. and costly to prepare as well.

Because of the cost, a commercial license is not a feasible option for educators at this time. We are working on this.

USE ON PRESENTATIONS: There is a short form Use Agreement for customers requesting use of images for conference presentations, on items not sold.

REFUND: We would be happy to give you a refund.

Please let me know what works for you.
So sorry for inconvenience.

Sincerely,
Karen

Kylie,
You are so aware of learning and the world!!! You usually don't get this smart until your my age!!! You have the best information for everything which I just crave.

To do a preview is easy if you know how. I have done it many ways. This is the best way: Go to "VIEW" and click onto multiply pages. This way you can clip your entire resource. Just download this clip to "Upload Preview File".

I will only buy a resource if I know what I'm getting. Teachers must be frugal and will buy only what they see they are buying.

Also, "Create Thumbnail Images" to post... Max File Size: 200 KB. I clip images of my product and then resize (make smaller) so they together are no larger then 200 KB together.

A cover page is very important since this is the first thing buyers see and post. I will checkout your covers. If you need frames or covers I will help you since I have spent a year exploring these elements. Having an art degree has helped me so much to design my resources. To save time it is worth it to buy frames and clip art form other sellers. I can draw quite well but to save time I will buy clip art.

If you don't understand my directs, let me know. Also, if you need any photos I have been taking and collecting them.

Thanks for all of your great insights,
Anne

Wow - thank you so much for this wonderful advice Anne. I am very new to all of this, so I appreciate your wisdom and experience very much...I will play with what you have taught me later in the weeknd when I get through my conference presentation on Saturday...most of the new stuff I am posting in my store is for my conference session :)

Many thanks and I appreciate your offer of continued support - no doubt I will need it. For now, they can stay how they are until I have time to totally focus on it and learn the new skills you have taught me. I am going to cut and paste your message above so I can read it more carefully and follow the steps on Sunday.

You are an absolute gem Anne,

Jillian S. re: Reciprocal Teaching in Math
Hi,
I use this method in my literacy block and am looking to add more discussion to my math rotation blocks. I thought I would just search for this under math and your activity cards came up. I was wondering how you use them? How often? Also can you give me an example of what it says under one of the cards? It is too small.
January 23, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Ripper Reading Resources
Ripper Reading Resources  (TpT Seller)
Hi there...this is an application of reciprocal teaching to Mathematics, in particular Math word problems.

The RT roles have been extended to:
Predicting, Connecting, Clarifying, Visualizing, Questioning, Calculating and Summarizing, so they are specific to the context of Math problem solving.

I will just check my own preview screen to see, as I thought it was possible to see the wording on a couple of the cards...Ok, the preview gives an overview of some of the cards, but you are right, the specific wording for each role card is not very large and this is intentional as this resource is based on my PhD research into the teaching of reading in English and Mathematics and I guess that was to protect the integrity of my intellectual work...

Here's an example of the Clarifying prompts:
Ask group members:
 What is the problem actually asking?
 Are there any words or terms you are unsure of?
 What information is needed to solve the problem?
Highlight the important information.
 What information isn’t needed?
 What operation/s is/are involved?

As you can see these are different to the traditional RT cards I use in my reading rotations as they are specific to Mathematical word problems, including visualizing the problem, summarizing the problem and the reasonableness of answers etc.

The other resource in my TPT shop with the RT cards for reading groups also extends the traditional RT sequence to include student-generated questioning and the explicit teaching of comprehension strategies.

Thanks for your interest in my product/s.
