Hey there! I just purchased your second grade writing curriculum. I was able to print out Sept, Oct, Nov, and Dec, however, the rest of the months would only print the pictures but no words. Any ideas?

Hi Tammy! Thanks for your purchase! I have a couple ideas... Try printing off a PC instead of a Mac if you are not already doing this. I read some trouble shooting answers on this and that was one suggestion. If that doesn't work, try updating your adobe reader. I think you have to have the newest update to open zip files. If that doesn't work, send me another message and we will figure it out. Sorry you had trouble! Thanks again for your purchase!

Hi,

I know this is a lot to ask, but do you think that you might be able to make each scenario on a separate page? I am looking to blow up the size of each to make it a full page, and then laminate so it so that the students can reuse it. I would LOVE to have it in color this way but I am unable to make color copies. Please let me know if this is possible?

Hi There,

Quick question on your Staying on Topic activity...can you tell me what the "on/off" and animal pictures are for in this packet?

Thanks.
March 5, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Shelli and Brittany
Shelli and Brittany  (TpT Seller)
Hi!! Thanks so much for your purchase! The On/Off and animal pictures are for those students who may finish early or who grasp the concept quickly. I laminate the on/off cards and stick them in a bag. I also laminate the animal pictures and put them in a separate bag. The student will then grab either an on/off card out of the bag and an animal picture from the other bag. If they have an 'on' card and a picture of a snake, they will write a paragraph about a snake that is completely ON topic. If they choose 'off' and a picture of snake, they will write a paragraph about a snake where one sentence is off topic. Their classmates will then read the paragraph and will try to decide if that student had an 'on' or 'off' card. Hope this makes sense. If it doesn't, please don't hesitate to ask another question!! :)

I was looking t the preview of this product tonight and have a couple of questions. I see that it is broken up into months with activities to do for each month. Is the packet mainly just worksheets or printables? Is it broken up into monthly activity or is it organized into quarters or topics (i.e. first quarter teaching persuasive writing etc)

Thanks!

Hi! Thanks for your interest! The packet is all printables with worksheets for each week. Each week comes with a planner that tells you exactly what to do and say each day. It's broke up into monthly units but each week works on a different skill. Right now April is listed for free. If you want, download that and it will give you a good idea of what to expect in the packet. If you still have questions just send me another message! Thank you!

Yikes! I wonder what is going on! Let me send the people at TPT a note and see what they say...we will figure this out!!!
UPDATE!!!! I did some quick research and here is what I found:
To open a ZIP file on a PC, you will need a program like 7-Zip. Click here to download 7-Zip for free
Once you have a zip program installed, click on the file icon and it should open. If it doesn't, right-click on the file and choose "extract" and all of files should appear.
On a MAC, simply click on the product ZIP file and a folder should appear. If this doesn’t work, hold down the control key and click the product file icon. Choose "open with" and then select "archive utility."
Here is the URL to download the 7-zip. http://www.7-zip.org/
We will keep our fingers crossed for you! If this doesn't work please let me know!!!

Hi! This unit does not contain any grammar. It really focuses on the seven writing standards laid out for second grade. I wanted to make sure my kids really understood and were able to achieve all of these standards. Most of the standards are taught and assessed at least two different times (in different ways) over the course of the unit. There are couple writing assignments and activities that are not included with the unit. These include things like sequential order, letter writing, etc. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask!!! Thank you!

When you code a final stable syllable you put a bracket around the last three letters. If a vowel is next to the bracket it will almost always say its name. I tell my kids that the vowels are scared of brackets so they scream their name if they aren't protected by a consonant. Does that make sense? It's hard to explain without showing you! If that doesn't make sense let me know and I can email you a document where I show you examples.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Shelli: This will be my 9th year teaching. My first year was crazy, but I was so excited to be teaching! I started out doing Title One for part of the day, and 7th and 8th grade Language Arts for the rest of the day. Mid-year they split the first grade class and I switched from Title to 1st, and still did Jr. High as well! After that crazy year I am very excited to say that I have been living out my dreams in 1st grade! I have also been on the RTI leadership committee for the last six years. Brittany: This will be my sixth year in second grade. I absolutely LOVE it! I think kids are amazing at this age. They are so willing and eager to learn.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We believe in meeting the needs of the whole child in a hands-on classroom with integrated curriculum. Our goal is to create an environment that makes our kiddos excited to come to school every day.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

We feel awarded every time we see that light bulb go off! We are lucky enough to teach at an age where we see non-readers become voracious readers.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

We both have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.
