I am so sorry I never got back to you on this, my mom passed away just days before this so needless to say my mind had been occupied with other things. My daughter drew the clipart for Fluffy. I am trying to get something together with Fluffy but haven't been very successful yet. As soon as I do I will send it to you. Please send me your email with the subject line Fluffy clipart so that I can do this. I know you wanted it for Thanksgiving so I am sorry and I don't guarantee it anytime soon, but it is in my to do pile.
Sorry again and thanks for understanding.

Shawna Devoe  (TpT Seller)
Hi there,
I am so sorry you are having problems. I haven't had any issues with anyone else not being able to print this so I am inclined to say it is an issue with the school computer and or printer. The first thing I would look at is making sure you have the most current version of Adobe Reader, if you don't then you need to update that. Then I would try to print on a different printer or even try from a different computer. Try these things first. If you are still having problems let me know and we will try something else. Also, if you are able to figure it out, let me know how so if a problem like this comes up again with someone else I will know how to better help them. Thanks and good luck!

Is there a lesson plan included in this packet?
September 18, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Shawna Devoe  (TpT Seller)
Hi Kim,
The packet does not include specific lesson plans but each skill or strategy has a page of directions, ideas to extend the activity and the common core strand that it is aligned with, much like the page attached to this freebie http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Bears-New-Friend-by-Karma-Wilson-Predicting-Freebie-863041

These packets are created to accompany your own lesson on the reading skill or strategy you are teaching. If you look at my blog there are book reviews done in a way to help you create your lessons. These book reviews are meant to take the guess work out of which books are good for which strategies with possible questions, responses and ideas so you don't have to spend your time thumbing through books to find those questions or ideas. Also, if it is a book you love to read and use already, the pages I create to go with the book give you the ability to teach, asses or practice whatever skill or strategy you are working at the time.

Here is a post on my blog that explains in more detail a few different ways to use the packets to accompany your lessons. http://thepicturebookteachersedition.blogspot.com/2013/07/how-to-best-use-reading-skill-and.html

I hope this helps.

Hi there,

Sorry for the confusion, I need to label the game boards so they are easier to figure out. The game boards are simply the white pages with the words on it pages 4 and 11 in the PDF file. Here is a link to the game on my blog so you can see a picture of it. http://thepicturebookteachersedition.blogspot.com/2013/03/prepositions.html

I hope you have fun with this, my tutor kids love it, but then again games are always more fun than work! :)

If you have any other questions or problem please let me know.

Have a great weekend!

irene quinn  (TpT Seller) re: Reading Skills & Strategies inspired by A Pocket Full of Kisses by Audrey Penn
Shawna, I love all your pages. I am just wondering this: Do you work with this book throughout the year for small chunks of time and specific goal or ........how do you use it. There is so much!!!
June 1, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Shawna Devoe  (TpT Seller)
Hi Irene,
The reason I make so many pages to go with the book is so that you can use the book for whatever strategy you are working on at the time. This gives you the freedom to use the book when you need/want to.

So here are a few ideas, or ways to use the pages.

1. Decide to introduce or do a mini lesson with just one of the skills or strategies. Read the story, use a page to work on as a class to show how to do it.

2. Continue working on or practicing a skill or strategy. After students have worked on a skill or strategy for a while, read, or re-read the book and have them practice that skill or strategy using the pages that fit - individually, with partners or small groups. You can use the book throughout the year pulling it out to use whenever you are working on a new skill or strategy.

3. Sometimes I take the book and use it throughout the day (kind of like a review). Many times one skill or strategy goes so well with another that you can build on each. For example, maybe you start with the character analysis which leads very nicely into comparing the characters, or the problem/solution. Or maybe you start with finding the most important part from beginning middle end which leads so nicely into sequencing, summarizing, or plot. I then lead those skills and strategies into writing, with either the visualization or the strong thought pages which require students to do a bit more thinking and writing.

4. You can also use these pages as quick assessments on a skill or strategy you have been working on. After reading the story, give them the skill or strategy page and see if they can come up with the main idea, problem/solution, cause & effect, etc. on their own.

Because the pages are differentiated, you can use them in small groups or simply choose the level that will work best for your students. For example, the predicting pages have a level where your students are just reading questions and picking a prediction. Another pages has them read the question and write their own prediction, or for you higher kids let them make their own predictions.

The most important thing to remember is that it is okay to use the same book many times throughout the year (predicting is probably the only thing you would need to have the book be a first read for) to work on these skills and strategies. The different skills and strategies have students looking at the book in different ways which keeps the students interested in the story and the learning.

I hope I have helped you to figure out some different ways to use these pages. I hope you and your students have fun with them, I know my students always do. Please let me know how you used the pages and how it turned out!

Good luck!

Hi Kris,
The game board is simply the plain white pages that have multiple prepositions (page 4 and page 11). That is the page that they will mark off the prepositions used - I left them white to help distinguish them from all the other playing pieces, I am sorry I should have clarified it better. I hope this makes sense, if you have any other questions please let me know.

I bought the Reading Skills and Strategies inspired by Gingerbread Baby and the first day I downloaded some activities I was ok. I have tried on 2 other occasions to download activities and Adobe freezes up on me. I am having to grab the photo and put it on a word document to print it out. Is there some sort of kink. I haven't had any trouble printing any other adobe items. Thanks for any help. I see below there is someone you had to email an item to. I will be happy to give you my email if that will work.my email is elizabeth.bearden68@gmail.com Thanks.

Buyer re: Reading Skills & Strategies Packet inspired by Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins
Hi Shawna! I bought your new book packet this morning and I am so excited to use it! Thank you for sharing!! I wanted to ask you about a part on page 12. I think a line from the Gingerbread Baby packet may have gotten mixed in with Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins. It is toward the bottom (sorry I don't have it opened in front of me) in the (I think) third box. Just wanted to give you a heads up!

I have tried 4 different times to send you an email but they keep getting kicked back (with and without the games attached thinking it was the attachment that kicked it back). I am sending them to tpreston@access.k12.wv.us is that correct? Do you have a personal email? Email me directly so we can figure this out shawnadevoe@gmail.com
So sorry :(

I bought both your camping spree with Mr. McGee games and I can't get them to print. I have tried 3 different printers. Could you possibly send it to an email address for me to try to open it that way, please. I am so excited about the games but can't use them! :(

Hello,
I am writing you in regards to the Teacher Appreciation Jack Pot. I made a huge error. I was so excited on Sunday I spent hours and hours on a very slow computer going to every site that participated. I might have looked around a bit and became a follower. I was so inspired by all of you bloggers. Anyways, I went to every single site and added the TPA Freebie to my wishlist because the computer I was on has a virus and was not cooperating. SSSLLLOOOWWW!!!! So I thought if I just add it to my wish list on Monday morning I will download them on my school computer where I do all or most of my school work anyway. I was so excited I woke up super early so I could get to school and download them. Come to find out you had to pay for them. I wanted to cry. I emailed tpt and when they finally got back to me they said unfortunately there was nothing they could do. I was suppose to download them. I don’t recall ever reading that anywhere but I am very new to all of this. They said I had to email each one of you individually. Yes, then and there I just about started to cry. I had 120 items I added to my wishlist. I was on the computer all day Sunday doing this.
I am just wondering if you would be so kind to email or what ever you have to do so that I can download your freebie. I thought I would try! Thank you for your creative inspiring blog!!

Hi - I found your TpT site through your blog and I love the materials! I have never seen this book and am always looking for new ones to add to our second grade plant unit. I looked at the preview and noticed a spelling error - shouldn't it say "declarative" sentences on the strips? looks it's just a typo but I wanted to let you know! I'm heading back to browse through your other materials - Lisa/2/CT

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Leveled Questions inspired by Swimmy by Leo Lionni
I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at a couple of your free items. They are unique and well thought out.

Here are a few other suggestions that might help you to better market your products. You might think about adding a second page which is a directions or suggestions page. List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product. (example: Like the response you gave below; teachers want to know this stuff!)

You might add a cover page and some color to Swimmy. Remember, your freebies should be your best as that is what draws new buyers into your store. Also, number your pages in each product.

If you have time, I’d would love your input on one of my freebies listed below.

Virginia 3rd Grade SOL's Say What
Virginia 3rd Grade SOL's Say What  (TpT Seller) re: Skills and Strategies Activity Packet inspired by Swimmy by Leo Lionni
Hi there. Do you do this as a whole group. Example: teacher reads this book to the whole class or do you do this in your guided reading groups. Thanks I love your ideas!

It really depends on your class and which activity your are asking about.
Vocabulary - done while you read the book, whole group.
Sequencing - done after you read the book, either as a center activity or in a small group so you can monitor their sequencing.
Visualizing - do whole group as you read the book, or it can be done if you read the book as small groups.
Story Mapping - done after you read the story in either a small group or as whole group, whatever is easier.
Asking Questions - do this while you read giving students time to write. Again this can be done either small or whole group.
Predicting - do this activity as you read the story stopping so they can make predictions. Either whole group (on class chart) or small group, whichever is easier.
Making Connections - done while reading if whole group it can be a class chart, or small group on the worksheet.
Inferencing - this can be done after reading. Depending on the level of the kids they can try on their own or with a partner, or as whole or small group.
Leveled Questions - are just for you to use if you need to dig deeper into their comprehension.
I am not sure if I answered your question but it really depends on the level of your kids. I really like doing whole group and using a class chart. Sometimes I will have them copy the chart onto their paper adding one of their own and other times they give it a try on their own. When they do it on their own I can see if they are understanding that strategy or skill.
Please let me know if I have not answered your question or need any other help! Good luck and have fun...this is such a great book!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a 10 year teacher with experience in every grade level. Once my school decided to adopt reading workshop, I was hooked. The problem I found was that I had plenty of picture books to choose from but finding the right book to teach the right skill or strategy proved to be very time consuming. From that came this idea of creating a packet with every possible skill or strategy that could be used with that particular picture book. These packets include the questions and graphic organizers needed to teach, practice, and master that skill or strategy.
