I loved the way your products look for Addition Math Facts! Do you happen to have any packets or documents that could be used to POST Addition and Subtraction Strategy POSTERS in my second grade classroom? I see you have alot of documents with some great graphics but how about posters that I could post and students refer to when needed? My email is: vzweibohmer@masoncityschools.org Thanks!

Hi Karen,
I've been meaning to write to you ever since a forum post on where people went to college. I also went to Dowling! It's a tiny school, but apparently the world is pretty small too! (Also, my son attends Binghamton.)
Have a great night! :)

That is so wild. A Dowling and Binghamton connection! I think TpT helps to make the world a little smaller. One of my favorite things about it. Sounds like we are close, maybe we can meet up some day.

Hi do you think I would use all the components for prek? I thought I would let them collect 5 and then put a star on their incentive charts.
Thank you

Hi Nancy,
I'm so happy you asked. The Academic and Classroom packs have a couple awards about Spelling, Reading, Writing, that may not apply to all of your students, especially early in the year. However, the bundle package is priced so that you are actually receiving 2 packs for free. I think it would cost the same to purchase separately. The Caught You Reading Program can be adapted for Pre-K, by setting parameters for reading with someone. I have taught mostly Pre-K - 2nd grade, I believe this pack is a good fit for Pre-K. Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with. Karen

How do you attach them to desks?

Silly Sam Productions  (TpT Seller)
I saw a great idea on Pinterest, where you laminate the desk topper and attach with several pieces of Velcro. Usually I laminate and then use clear mailing tape, but I am switching to Velcro this year. There is now an editable version available that allows you to type the student names too.
Here is a link to my Pinterest boards, http://pinterest.com/kawcrayon/ the Velcro pin can be found on Clever and Classroom Management & Organization. It links to a great blog called Organization. Hope this helps. Karen

Mary Straw  (TpT Seller) re: Silly Sam Caught You Reading! At-Home Reading Incentive Program
Hi,
I know this is really random but I was just trying to sort out an issue on Pinterest and noticed you had the same thing happening. I noticed on the bottom of your pin on Back To School TpT Teach (nice, btw) it had "uploaded by . . ." and not a direct click to your store or product. That's a problem, right?
All of mine are the same way even though I added the link to the pins on my board but when I repin them on other boards it doesn't show up.
Let me know if you figure it out and I'll do likewise if you want.
Cheers, Mary
ps . . .I went to the forum last night and got one response.

Hi sweet pea :-) Quick question...I would like to pin a link/pin to your Good Character board on my cool classroom board so more people can learn about your board but can't find a pin from that board that just explains the board. If you ever get to making one, would you please let me know? I'm thinking pinning off that sweet board won't do quite the same thing. Just a thought I had. Thanks if you ever get to it :-) Hugs.

Hi Silly Sam!
I wanted to send you something free of charge from my store for sharing in my 100 follower success. Sorry to be so late in getting it out, but I wanted to update my store first with things that were not already past their shelf life. (The majority of my items are based around specific holidays, and I seem to always be a holiday behind!) If you post your email here, I will send the item of your choice to you ASAP.) You can then delete this message, so others won't be able to view it. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks so much,
Janet:)

I saw your email address in the thread and am going to look through your store this weekend to choose! Thanks so much, and I really did mean what I said about you being so supportive to others! If you want, you can respond to that as opposed to addressing it here.
Thanks again!

Hello there..

I love the color coding however common core requires students to work with numbers to 120. Would you adding the extra 20 numbers to your hundreds charts?

Thanks,

Hello Sam,
I am happy to say that I now have a 120 Chart version of the One More One Less-Ten More Ten Less strategy. The 100 Chart version is still available as well. There is also a BUNDLE Package that includes both the 100 Chart ane the 120 Chart Packs together. Thank you for the wonderful suggestion. This is a great opportunity to allow first graders to become familiar with and interact with numbers to 120.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have experience teaching every grade from Pre-K-9th grade. Most of my career however, has been spent as a First Grade Teacher, and a 2nd grade Basic Skills Teacher. I spent five years as the regular education partner in an In Class Support team. There, I had opportunities to work with Special Education students as well as Counselors, Psychologists, Behavior Specialists and Social Workers. I have written curriculum for every subject area taught in First Grade and have served on many committees to select textbooks and evaluate needs for the district. I also have had former students return as Student Teachers, and have had the pleasure of seeing the world through their eyes twice.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My specialties in my classroom are: Classroom Management, Motivation, Caring Classroom, Visualization Techniques, Cooperative Learning, Differentiation, Brain Based Learning and Enrichment Opportunities. My goal is to have each student feel comfortable and safe to take learning risks and for every student to advance and meet their potential. The motto in my classroom is that there is "Never nothing to do". Every student will be provided with learning opportunities at their level, whether it be critical thinking, re-teaching or enrichment. I have a little class mascot named Silly Sam that I started doodling when I was 10 years old. He acts as a motivator for my students and provides many award incentives for them. They enjoy earning Silly Sam Awards and are proud to show their families their achievements in school.
