Message me your email and the color you are using. I can send you an editable blank card in that color. I will let you know the name of the font I used so you can download that and make everything match :) I use dry erase markers on blank cards in my classroom but I understand wanting everything to match :) I am out of town and away from my computer with the document until Monday. Thanks for asking!

I am sorry but I think I misunderstood your initial request. I can't send an editable version of the assessment itself because of the clipart and license to use the fonts commercially that I purchased and used to create this product. That would be against the law for me to do. You could white out the CC standard number though and write in the standards you use... maybe that will help? I am sorry for the misunderstanding.

I am looking for something that I can use as a starting data point and baseline in order to track the learning goals that take place throughout the year. Would this be helpful with that? I want to have the students take the test in the beginning of the year and then again at the end of the year.
July 28, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Sarah Helm
Sarah Helm  (TpT Seller)
This assessment is for beginning of the year only. It is an assessment that covers all of the skills your 2nd graders should have learned in 1st grade. There are no questions related to the new skills you will introduce to your 2nd graders. With this assessment you can look at the data and determine holes in individual student's learning from 1st grade so you know which students need additional support in which skills. Does that make sense? I will be working on an end of the year assessment for 2nd graders that will include all skills that you will teach throughout the year! I hope this helps :) thank you for your questions!!

Absolutely! As long as it is a flattened file like a PDF :) Perfect! That helps protect the clip art that I purchased.

Does this assessment include geometry, algebraic concepts, numbers and operations, and measurement?
November 8, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Sarah Helm
Sarah Helm  (TpT Seller)
Yes it does. For the first grade assessment the questions are all based on the Kindergarten end-of-the-year standards. It is meant to be a beginning of the year assessment to see if there are any holes...things students forgot or didn't quite understand in Kindergarten. This can give you some great information about what you may need to back up and reteach before you move on to first grade skills. I included a tracking/rubric for each domain (geometry, counting and cardinality, operations and algebraic thinking, numbers and base ten, & measurement and data) for you to keep track of all the information, too!

Buyer re: Classroom Management + Home-School Connections
This package describes slides to show specific behaviors etc. I'm not finding those. Help please
November 3, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Sarah Helm
Sarah Helm  (TpT Seller)
On the "Good to Know" slides I explain how students begin their day on green every day and can earn a better color (blue, purple, or pink) by showing me they are following directions and being good examples. Students lose a color when they are not doing those things (yellow, orange, red). I use this system more as a positive reinforcer though, instead of having the student who is not following directions move his/her color down, I find someone who is doing what they should be doing and have them move their color up! However, there are always those few students who just don't get it and need to have the consequence of moving their color down, filling out a THINK SHEET, discussing this with mom/dad, or maybe even discussing this with the principal. The specific behaviors depend on your own class though, so I did not give lists of specific behaviors, just a few examples. I hope that helps! If not, I can make a list for you! Let me know!!

for some reason I can not get the calendar and tally pages to print. Do you know why? The only thing that prints off of those pages is the words "August" and the picture besides the words the calendar part and the lines on the tally pages will not print.

Can you see everything correctly on your PDF download? I can email you the PDF again, the same one that is uploaded but it is also the one that I have printed so I know it prints correctly. If you try and print that one and it doesn't work then we know it is something with your printer settings maybe or your version of adobe reader? I have not had anyone else report that problem though...

Send me your email address and I will send you the PDF :)

Buyer re: Kindergarten "I can ___" statement cards + Teacher Data Sheets {Pirate Theme}
Do you list every common core standard on a poster?
September 13, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Sarah Helm
Sarah Helm  (TpT Seller)
Yes. All of the CCSS are included in this package. I put each standard in "I can ___" form to make it easier for students to understand. The standard number is next to each I can statement for easy reference for you, too.

There are two statements per page, so they can be cut apart, laminated and posted in the classroom as you need them.

The teacher checklist has all of the statements listed as well (organized by domain) to make recording data related to the standards easier! The teacher checklist is intended to be printed for each student. I keep mine in a binder with tabs for each student, I have the check list, reading interest interview, reading and writing conferencing information, and other important paperwork I might get on a specific student. It is basically my Assessment notebook, but different than my gradebook, if that makes sense. My grade book has everything in it, this assessment binder is what I use to help me track progress and complete my report cards, and talk to parents at conferences.

Any way :) I hope that answers your question!

Scipi
Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Story Map Cards
I saw your posting on the Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Since you are new at this, here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.

Add some clipart to add color or just color some of your font. (I do, even on math tests!) For some reason buyers like color on the original even though they may copy your product in black and white. Also, create a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do? How? Etc.) List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.

I notcied you uses the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name but also add the date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also number your pages.

It is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below to gather some ideas. If you care to, a rating or any feedback you might have would be great.
