I used the level 5 in making this graphic organizers. I listed each section of the national/state rubric leaving a place to fill in your evidence or documentation to give talking points on each point. Let me know if you need more information. :-)

Hi Robyne,

Thanks for the response! Yes I was talking about the 3rd grade curriculum maps. I am only looking for the science portion of it and am not sure I want to pay $30.00 for just that though! Thanks :)

It would take way too much time to separate the subjects. Sorry. As far as the $30...I tell myself it is less than $1 per week. LOL. Let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with.

Would you be willing to sell your 3rd grade Scott Foresman Science curriculum separate from the rest? If so, what copyright of Scott's book do you have?

Robyne Batson EdD  (TpT Seller)
Are you referring to the Curriculum Maps for 3rd grade? If so, all the subjects are on one document and not easily separated. I will check the SF Science year tomorrow. It is the current edition for our county
If you are talking about Reading the Masters: An Arts Integrated Curriculum, it covers all subjects with an emphasis on Reading, LA, and writing.

Hi I have a question and I was wondering if you might know the answer. I am new to TpT and want to create a couple products that have famous art included in them. I noticed that you have some products that use famous art pieces as well. Did you find that you needed to get permission because of copyright issues? Thanks I appreciate it!

Hi, I'm a new in training, and am curious to hear how you teach reading from a poster with hardly any reading on it?

Robyne Batson EdD  (TpT Seller)
Thanks for the good question. I use many thinking and questioning strategies. I help students to find the main idea, compare and contrast, sequence, etc... in the piece (reading skills). Your question is why I developed this curriculum. I wanted to find a way to help students understand reading skills, language arts, and writing using a visual image.

When are you planning this week long study? The materials that I have on here are used by K-9th. However, I am in the process of finalizing a PreK-1st series. So, let me know when you need it and I will complete the PreK-1st series on daVinci for you. :-)

Buyer re: Reading the Masters with Michelangelo (Teacher/Student Manual, CD, Ppt)
Dear Ms. Batson:
I am an elementary school art teacher, and I am always looking for new materials to teach my PreK - fifth grades. I was on the TPT website and looked at "Reading the Masters - Leonardo da Vinci." Now, I love Da Vinci and would very much love to purchase & teach "Reading the Masters Leonardo da Vinci", especially now with the focus on the new common core learning standards in english language arts. However, when I download the preview to see what it is that I would be purchasing, and if it would be appropriate for the different grade levels that I teach, the only preview that comes up is the cover and a link to a website that doesn't give me any more information either, except what it promises to do without any look at a sample of what's inside.

The description "Using masterpieces of art to teach reading skills and writing through arts integration" doesn't really help me in terms of deciding if this purchase would be appropriate for the subject I teach, & the grades I teach. Is it aligned with the new common core english language arts learning standards? As an art teacher, I would like to know if there are art lessons/activities to go along with looking at the artwork. Is the artwork even included? Is it written in cursive or print? What's the difference between all the different versions of "Reading with the Masters - Leonardo da Vinci" except the prices. What computer operating system does the CD work on? Is there a separate teacher's manual? Is there a separate student manual? Would you be able to give me anymore information about all of the different versions of Reading the Masters Leonardo da Vinci on the TPT site? A more detailed description of what you are offering would be extremely helpful.
Thank you
Renee

Hey Renee,
I appreciate your interest. Let me see if I can clear up some of your questions.

Art Teacher - My daughter was an art teacher in Jackson/Madison County (TN) for 2 years. She used Reading the Masters for her PreK-5th grade students. One artist can be covered in 30 minutes for 5 days if you select one thing per day, or over a semester if you select to do multiple lessons and activities provided.

Products - I am not sure which TpT product of daVinci you are looking at but here is the breakdown:
Hardcopy includes the Teacher's Manual which includes the Student Edition and the CD. The CD has the entire Teacher's/Student's Edition and the power point.
Digital Copy - the Teacher/Student Edition is an item
Digital Copy - the power point is sold as an item. You should be able to see a preview of the Table of Contents and some sample pages on the digital items.

Common Core - I am the curriculum and instruction mentor at our Pre-K through 8th school. I understand how important these new, challenging, and rigorous standards are for us. I do not have a standard listed on each activity, but the CCSS are definitely addressed throughout the entire edition! :-)

Technology - The CD and documents were created in Word 2010 and work on PC and Apple.

Lessons - The lessons and activities are arts integrated...intertwining the CCSS academics and arts standards and elements. They show students how to find the main idea, key details, along with many other reading skills and strategies with a piece of art (included in the manual [hardcopy and digital] and then applying these same skills and strategies to reading written text. A biography, culminating activities, memorable quotes, etc... are included. The student section has a K-2grade in larger manuscript and a 3-8th version in manuscript. The powerpoint is packed with slides to be used as these skills are being taught, discovering the elements of art in the piece, several pieces by the master while learning to determine facts and opinions, culminating activities to end the study, and much more.

Product -(1) The Mini Lesson includes a copy of Mona Lisa with a single activity for each subject area. The lesson ideas are different than the ones included in the very comprehensive Reading the Masters Curriculum. (2) The Mona Lisa intervention prep sheet is one sheet covering comprehension questions, a writing prompt, and an arts extension activity, different from the very comprehensive Reading the Masters (3) The other daVinci products on TpT are offered as single items OR are included in the comprehensive Reading the Masters Curriculum.
If you still need more information, please do not hesitate to contact me again. I am here to help.
