Buyer re: Shape Booklet
Hi Sarah! I absolutely LOVE your shape books! They are perfect for my shapes unit. But would it be possible to correct the word "a" to "an" on both octagon and oval? For example, "I see an octagon looking at me." Thank you for an adorable book!

Sarah, yeah I looked it up too. It read through the first two pages on the preview page. It looks interesting and the reviewers seemed to enjoy it. My school is in the beginning stages of training teachers in Common Core. The whole idea is still new to me. And many times I just don't have a clue where to start. That's why I'm so thankful for this site and all of the wonderful ideas everyone has to share. It has helped me tremendously. How long has your district been doing Common Core? Are your parents receptive to it?

Our district adopted the Go Math Common Core Series when it first came out three years ago! Reading we basically have to supplement a lot because we have treasures right now! The parents haven't really seemed to say too much except the math is much harder! I'm happy to help you with any questions you might have in the future!!

Hi Sarah, that's so much for responded back. I'm currently introducing long vowels with vowel pairs to my students for the month of November, and I'd like to begin exposing them to the digraphs and r controlled vowels for the winter months. But I just appreciate any wonderful items you have already created. I know the life of a teacher can be quite busy. I will search through other products you have available as well. I'm pretty sure the rest of your products are just as wonderful. Thanks so much for checking on that book too. You're too sweet!

Hi Sarah, I absolutely love your packet on Easter activities. I am interested in purchasing it for my 1st grade class. Question, sdo you have other holiday themed packets for digraphs, or r controlled vowels? I was also wondering, have you ever heard of a book called Beware of the Common Core. Another teacher from a blog site recommended it to me as a funny book to introduce the Common Core to my students. Said it was not a bashing book, but one that helps kids to not be afraid of what they might perceive the Common Core to be and focused on RF. 1.3c standard Just wondering if you may have read or heard about it to see if its worth reading or not since you are very familiar with Common Core and have some great lesson ideas. Thanks

Hi Chrissy,
Thanks for your kind words. I don't have a specific digraph or r-controlled packet in my store. I would love to get some of those things added to my long to do list. I just don't have much time this year for some reason, but something I will definitely try to work on!! Are there specifics you would like to see added to these packets? I hope to get started NOW on a Christmas themed packet, can't make any promises though. But if you had specifics of what you would like to see, I can certainly try to incorporate those into the upcoming projects.

As for the book, no I have not heard of it, but you have peaked my curiosity. I will go take a look at it on Amazon and see what I think. Thanks.

Sarah,

Thanks so much! Love them!

I printed out a test page, and they are a little too big for my Reading Recovery bins...The bins are kind of like magazine holders....

Would it be possible to decrease the width to 3 1/4 inches? The height is fine...

I appreciate your help!

The larger size labels or the smaller size labels??
What is your email address, I can adjust it and send it to you so you can test it and if I need to keep changing it I will. That way I don't have to upload it many times if we need to keep readjusting. Will that be O.K.

O.K. I have a sample page done, so when you send me your email address, I can email this page to you. You can print it and see if it will work. If it is good, I will go through and fix the other labels also. Hopefully this is O.K. with you!! Just trying to make things as easy as possible.

I just finished those labels for you and uploaded them to my store. I included the link above, but not sure if it will take you there. Please be honest and let me know if this is what you were wanting, I would be happy to go back and "fix" anything you would want differently. I included large and small sizes because I wasn't sure what size you were wanting. Thanks and let me know if there is anything else I can do for you!!

Thanks, Sarah,

You can put the Guided Reading Levels and the Reading Recovery Levels on the same set of labels. Then I can just put one label on each bin.

Thanks so much for your help!

Thanks so much, Sarah....

I haven't purchased anything yet, but I can if you want me too....I just need the book bin labels...

I was thinking that the style of label that you did the months of the year in would be nice....And just leave the black part the same as it is on the months of the year, but instead of the pink middle, just white in the middle....

And I do need the Guided Reading Alphabetic level as well as the Reading Recovery Level...

Thanks Again!

No, no need to buy anything justaking sure I didn't just need to update something. Ok, so guided reading and reading recovery labels in black and white, I will start working on that. Did you want the levels for both on the same label or separately? Sorry so many questions, just want to make sure I have it right!!

Hi,

I am a new Reading Recovery teacher and need to label my book bins.

I just need the book bin labels.

I wondered if you could do some in a different color other than Black and Pink....Maybe just Black and White?

Thanks!

I would be happy to. Did you already purchase my one set or would you like me to create a separate book bin set? You are just wanting black and white, right?? Did you want the guided reading levels or just the reading recovery levels on the labels.

Do you have a scope and sequence for teaching cc math to first graders?

Sarah Mackey
Sarah Mackey  (TpT Seller)
Well our district adopted the new "Go Math" series for the common core standards and from my understanding this has a spiraling effect to where we have to follow the scope/sequence in the book. It supposedly will make all the world in the years to come once they keep moving on in grades. We also just had an inservice where many speakers came in and gave us materials and information on it. Are you needing some information for them??

Hi,
I purchased your Cookin' with Math. Only after I copies, backed on paper, and laminated did I realize (my daughter actually did) that the writing on the sums to 20 chef's apron is backwards. It is too late for me - time and cost- for me to redo the centers, but you should correct the error so others don't have same mistake

I looked at these and not sure why it did this. I'm not sure if it was from the clip art I purchased or something I did when I created it. I will try and put the images back in and see if it does it again. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I will try and get this fixed so you can redownload it. Sorry for this problem.

O.K. I think I fixed the problem. So sorry again, I would be happy to give you a complimentary packet for free if you would like Michelle. Just let me know. Thanks.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am in my 8th year of teaching. This is currently my second year in first grade. Prior to this I have taught 3rd, 5th, and 6th grades. I also taught 7th grade Reading for three years. I have my master's degree in Reading and am currently taking classes to earn my ESL endorsment.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to vary all my teaching methods to best suit my student's needs. I typically use hands on and visual representations.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

None at this time.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have my B.S. in elementary education, my master's in Reading, and I am currently working on my ESL endorsement.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am married to a great husband and have two lovely girls. My oldest daughter is 8 and my younger daughter is 2. I am always trying to come up with ideas and activities that I think my girls would love and then apply it to the education world.
