Hi there and happy new year! I just discovered your blog and your TPT store, and decided that you might know the answers to my burning questions! I have been a teacher for a long time, and a technophobe for much longer than that. I am TRYING to be better, so I'm doing a little research. What type of a program would you recommend for making teacher resources? I've had people recommend Illustrator, but that seems sort of complicated (or maybe not...how would I know?). Also, I love sharing my resources and want to do so on Teachers Pay Teachers (I teach reading and writing...mainly high school, but also some grade three). Do you have any recommendations on generating traffic? Is it best to have a blog or are there other ways to direct traffic to you store that you would recommend?

Thank you so much...

The activities work best if you have a class set of the books. However, you may be able to modify the lessons and do a read aloud with a single book.

Hi Stacy,
I was interested in purchasing the common core labels. Just wondered, is each entire label sheet dedicated to 1 standard, thus the 60 pages? Or are there several standards on each sheet?
Thank You!

Stacy Mickelson  (TpT Seller)
Hello!
Each sheet has the same standard so you'll get 30 of the same standard. Thanks for asking!

I would assume that there haven't been too many changes from 10 to 11 that would effect the usability of the product but I can't be certain. I'll check with my Tech. Guy and get the product listing updated ASAP. ~Stacy

I created it using Notebook 10 for the Smartboard. I don't think it translates to anything else. On Monday, I'll change it to a different file format and re-upload it. Since this resource isn't strictly for Smartboard users, it would make sense to make it a word document. Hold tight and I'll get a new one posted as soon as I can. ~Stacy

Buyer re: Thanksgiving on Thursday - A Unit
I teach a 2/3 split class and currently only have one copy of the story. Will the activities be appropriate for both levels and can it been done as a read aloud?
November 6, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Stacy Mickelson  (TpT Seller)
The grade level would certainly be appropriate, especially if you will be reading it aloud. However, you may find difficulty having the students complete the Comprehension Questions. Some of the questions require the students to go back and find the answer in the text and it can be tough if you only have one book. You can always modify the lesson, and complete the Comprehension Questions together or pass the book around and have different students locate the answer for the whole class.

The text itself could work for lower 5th graders, but some of the activities, can be considered more their level. I suggested that a copy for each pair of students could work, as well. Just have the kids partner read.

Buyer re: Seasonal Attendance Keeper for Smart Boards
Hello! I would like to purchase your Smart Board Lunch set however I will need to change the options. For example we have Hot lunch, Cold lunch, fruit and veggie tray or salad. Would this be possible for me to change the text within the forms?
August 16, 2012 Report inappropriate comment

Stacy Mickelson  (TpT Seller)
Absolutely! Select the object by clicking on it. First, you need to unlock it. Right-click on your mouse and choose the "Locking" option, then click on "unlock". Now you need to ungroup the picture from the text. Right-click again and choose "Grouping", and select "ungroup". Now you can change the text by double-clicking on it. To regroup the text and the picture together, click and drag your mouse so that both objects have a box around them. Now you can group and lock by using the right-click shortcut. If you need more help, let me know! smickelson@dist399.net

Hi Donna!
Since it's a Smart File, it is editable. I bet you could clone the Hot Lunch choice, change the text to "Hot Lunch Choice #1" and "Hot Lunch Choice #2" You may need to size it down everything to make it fit, though. Let me know if you need help with the cloning, sizing and text-change.

There is a mistake on the acorn suffix cootie catcher. The word quieter needs to be changed to quicker or the clue needs to match the word quieter. I can't change anything on the document. Can you change it and send it back to me?
My students absolutely loved this and wanted more! What a great idea!!

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Sight Words Quick Assessment - 2nd grade - FREEBIE!
I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. Welcom to the TPT world. You will love it here.

I have a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products. First, create a cover page which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. Add 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. Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also, number your pages. You might think about adding some color and clipart to your products. Buyers tend to like that.

Since you teach in the primary grades, I’d appreciate your input on my freebie listed below. I like to get suggestions and feedback from a variety of teachers.

I am now your 7th follower, and hope you will reciprocate at my store as well. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 10 years. I taught 3 of those years in the Chicago area. I am now teaching in the very school that I attended as an elementary and high school student. It is exciting to be teaching the children of old classmates!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I integrate a lot of Differentiated Instruction in my daily lessons. I try to give my students as many choices in their final products as possible. I believe that all students learn differently and it is my job to give them the opportunity to perform at their best.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

None. . . yet!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I completed my B.S. in Elementary Education at Northern Illinois University in December of 2001. I recently completed my M.A. in K-12 Technology Integration (online) with Nova Southeasern Univeristy in March 2010.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have two wonderful sons, Cameron and Benny. Cameron has just begun Kindergarten (in the same school I teach, so he is right down the hall from me all day) and Benny is in Early Step Preschool. (this is also held in the building I teach in) I have a wonderful husband named Eric and we are feverishly renovating a 100-year-old farmhouse just on the edge of town. Life is Great!
