I bought your packet for Lemonade Crime a while back. I am making comprehension and voc. tests for my students and wanted to share them on Teachers Pay Teachers. I think it would be great along with your packet, which is what I use to prepare my students!! I would love to recommend to those that purchase my tests see and purchase your packet. First I wanted to get your permission to promote your product. My questions I developed have come mostly from your study material. 2) I have never sold on teachers pay teachers and I am wondering what type of copyright there is posting a test with questions from a novel. Do we need to post something about the author of the book? Thank you for any help you can give! Your stuff is great!!!

Hey there! You can create any materials that you want for any book as long as they are your original ideas and questions. There is no copyright violation in making questions for a novel, but you cannot copy another seller's questions and put them in another format. There is no need to credit my unit since you are making your own original material to go with the book. Good luck!

If you're using a Mac: This sometimes happens when PDFs are opened in the Mac's native PDF program ('Preview') instead of Adobe Reader. So you'll need to open this with the latest Adobe Reader which can be downloaded from here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/

IMPORTANT PART! :) Don't open the file by clicking on it (as this will automatically open it with Preview). Instead, launch Adobe Reader then go to 'File'-->'Open...', and select the PDF that way.

Buyer re: Build a Pipeline: Engineering Challenge Project ~ Great STEM Activity!
I downloaded this challenge but am unclear about if and how the students are actually supposed to get the water from one cup to the next. Do they pour it in one end? Do you use a funnel? I understand they are supposed to be creative but I like to have a general idea of how it should work before giving the kids the challenge. Thank you!
March 31, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Smart Chick
Smart Chick  (TpT Seller)
No problem at all. We pour one cup of water into one side of the pipeline and it must run through and empty out on the other side of the pipeline. It will need to slope downward at a slight angle. We place one syrofoam cup at one end and one at the other end with straws taped together in between the two cups. There is a picture on the teacher direction page that may help you to "see" a possible solution.

Hi! I just downloaded your bouncy ball freebie and was wondering what questions you ask students that specifically pertain to energy? I was thinking of writing up a couple of questions to go with it on potential and kinetic energy and a demonstration that shows that kinetic is never greater than potential, but I was curious about what you do with it.

We usually do that challenge towards the end of our matter & energy unit, so the kiddos are pretty well-versed in Newton's Laws, vocabulary, etc. I have had them explain what the ball does from table to bouncing to rest using energy terms as if they were the ball. I got really creative responses!

How did you test your students' popsicle stick bridges? We are loving the construction part, and some have finished so we've been doing some initial weight testing. A couple of bridges surpassed 50lbs of weight and now I'm racking my brain trying to think of a way to test them in the most economical, efficient way possible. Any ideas would be great!
March 20, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Smart Chick
Smart Chick  (TpT Seller)
That is amazing! Depending on the size of the bridges and the size of your kids, you can ask kiddos to stand on them (bring in a bathroom scale to check the weight of the kid). We have used text books and dictionaries stacked. You can also hang weights over the bridge and hanging down on either side. Gallon jugs of water can be great for this system. Just use rope and lay it over the surface of the bridge (sitting on a table edge) and hanging down and tie on the gallon jugs of water as needed. Good luck!

If you're using a Mac: This sometimes happens when PDFs are opened in the Mac's native PDF program ('Preview') instead of Adobe Reader. So you'll need to open this with the latest Adobe Reader which can be downloaded from here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/

IMPORTANT PART! :) Don't open the file by clicking on it (as this will automatically open it with Preview). Instead, launch Adobe Reader then go to 'File'-->'Open...', and select the PDF that way.

I teach second grade and we have a new Egineering kit dokey focused on building bridges. I was wondering if have anything of your STEM Egineering challenges focused on bridges? Also, can you recommend a few of your single challenges that would work well for second graders and good for introducing/just getting started with Egineering? It's a new concept we have to teach and I anticipate the kiddos struggling with what an egineer is. Finally, do you have anything directed towards soils---testing dry and wet, shake and settle testing, rolling a ball, smearing sand, humus, and clay? Many thanks! Your things are beyond useful!

I give the kiddos about 45-60 minutes for each challenge. We usually fill out the lab sheets in about 10-15 minutes after the challenge.

Hello,

I love the product, but was having the same issues as kwolthausen. Your advice solved it. Thanks!

I was wondering if you offer an answer key for your comprehension questions. I am doing Lit Circles with multiple novels and any little bit of time saving helps :)

It says I can purchase the first five packs on a flash drive. Where do I find this option to take advantage?

Also, can I purchase this whole $90 pack on a flash drive?

Lastly, when is your next sale? Though I know this is an incredible deal, I am a single mom and it still is cost prohibitive for me. Thanks so much for your great products!

Would you happen to have a model essay that you shared with the students based on this prompt? They are really having a hard time getting started....they love the topic and the song.

We did this one awhile ago. I can see if one of my kiddos still has one around.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for 18 years in a large, urban, public school district (I have taught in four different schools) and I LOVE it! I taught a self-contained, multi-aged gifted class for seven years. Prior to this assignment, I taught regular ed 4th and 5th grades. I am now in a wonderful STEM school teaching 5th grade! I love the STEM philosophy and it is really making my students problem solvers! I am so lucky to have such great students, past and present!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have a progressive and eclectic, a "whatever works" approach to teaching. I always want to keep kids engaged and interested in what we are doing. I do a lot of hands-on, project-based activities in all subject areas. I believe in always teaching at a high level with high expectations for both myself and my students.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Received a First Year Teacher Award in 1997 Nominated for the Disney Teacher of the Year three times WalMart Teacher of the Year 2006

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor Of Science in Education 1996 Masters of the Art in Education 2004 Gifted/Talented Certification 2005

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Check me out on Facebook: Smart Chick Teaching Resources OR on my recently created blog: http://smartchickteacher.wordpress.com/ http://growingastemclassroom.blogspot.com/ Higher level materials in all subject areas designed to increase student engagement and achievement. I have been a teacher of diverse student groups, like gifted students, for many years and have designed and used these items in my own classroom with much success! I also believe that any child will benefit from highly engaging and interesting activities and projects. It is so important to make learning as authentic as possible for all learners, irregardless of their level. All students have gifts and talents and it is important that we, as teachers, find and recognize these in every child. These materials give students the opportunity to increase skills they will need in the real world, not just skills they will need to do well on tests!
