Buyer re: Interactive Notebook Templates MEGA PACK - Over 1000 + Templates
I asked a few weeks ago about the additional packs, and you said you are planning to get them out before vacation on the 18th. Tomorrow is the 18th, will they be out today?

I've been too busy to get them completely done. They might have to wait until after I come back which will be at the end of August. I may get it done during vacation but my husband has been encouraging me to work less - he may get his way! If you are waiting for them before you purchase, you can purchase them now if you like and get the additional pack at no extra cost when it comes out.

Hi, I purchased your Interactive Notebook Templates MEGA pack and although I love the foldables, I'm finding that it's not as user friendly as I need it to be. Since this is a huge resource, it would be helpful if I could view all of the colored paper (final product) examples in one file. Instead, I'm spending too much time clicking around trying to locate examples of the final product. What I've discovered is there are examples of the final product for some foldables and not others. Also, if the visual indexes for each type of foldable were combined it would save teachers a lot of time instead of us having to click on them separately. Honestly, I've had a frustrating time navigating this resource. I suggest that you look through it and find ways to combine information and visuals and provide a finished product photo for each foldable. Maybe you could even add tutorials for the trickier foldables when you have time. Thanks so much!

Great, thanks!

The PNG images are between 260 and 300 dpi. However, I have included the original templates that I designed in PowerPoint so those are extremely sharp and customizable.

If you want to see how the PNG images print out. You can download my Sampler pack of 9 templates at the link below.

Hi, Love your stuff. I was wondering how you get your pins to be so big on Pinterest?
Here is one:http://www.pinterest.com/amdickerman/math/
June 4, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Tangstar Science
Tangstar Science  (TpT Seller)
I never pin my products from TPT. I always make a separate cover for every product I put up in pinterest. I use PowerPoint, change the size of the canvas so that it is as long as I want it to be. Make my design on one PowerPoint slide, then when I go to save, I save the current slide as a PNG. This turns it into an image file. When I pin, I upload the file, and then after I upload it, I put in the "source" which is the URL (http://your product from tpt) of the product I want the pin to link to. This is how I do it and I find I get way more repins and can better control how I want to design my pin. Hope this helps!

Update: Inspired by your question I decided to make a blog post outlining how to do it - with instructional images and all.

You can find it here.

Yes and I am kind of new here. I want to change to a logo, because I have had an issue lately with privacy so I am trying to figure out what to do. I was literally playing around with the logo for 2 hours while my son napped when you messaged me! You just saved me a lot of work. I definitely don't want the almost- same avatar as another seller. I will play with it more tonight. Thanks again!

No problem....I'm supervising the prom this year and I've overheard the girls talk about 3 dresses that will be same at the prom. I just didn't want you to commit to a "dress" and then find out later that someone else is wearing the same thing. I knew that your logo was very new and so you must be playing around with it and I thought that there might be time to catch the "double dress" situation. It wouldn't be so bad to use the same image, but the name of both stores have the word Science in it and it might lead to confusion and cross-branding.

Hi Tangstar,
I am contacting you to see if you would be interested in participating in a TpT marketing event at a conference in Texas called CAST (Conference for the Advancement of Science Teachers). The conference is K-12 and usually hosts over 7,000 educators. 4mulafun is trying to reserve one of the booths near a company that we know will draw us in a GREAT crowd (being near clothing is always good). She has priced it out and for 10 people to do this conference and focus on a more interactive pull for science teachers, it would be $110 for each participant. We will be selling a CD for a hugely discounted price much like the online bundles people do. I should mention that you do NOT need to be in attendance; however, you would contribute a product or products.

If you are interested please let me know (jlyas714@gmail.com). As of right now we have four sellers that are interested. I can send you a picture of previous conference sessions as well. I look forward to your reply.

I have two more packs to put up - A Flaps and Tabs Pack and then one more (over 200 more templates)

Then I will sell all 7 packs in a bundle together at a discount of around 30% off.

I'm a couple of days away from the Flaps and Tabs Pack, then I will start on the last pack then the entire bundle will be available near the end of the month hopefully. These are my TPT priorities now since the templates have been such a hit.

So far as I can tell, my templates are the most extensive (variety, shapes and sizes) available on TPT and if you can wait for it I will have all of them (over 600 templates available) at the end of the month at a discount. Some other people have inquired about this as well and are waiting upon the same thing.

If you are a follower you will be updated when the products arrive. Hope this helps you plan.

Thanks for your inquiry!

You are free to use them in free items as long as you are not giving them away "as is" (i.e. as the same type of templates that I have made, and as long as you give credit. I have included two simple options to give credit for the product when you download it.

Your items must be reworked items. So if you are adding biblical themes to the products. This will be fine.

I will be adding a Petals Pack (petal folds from 3 folds to 12 folds) this week as well as another Pack later on this month. In the end I will sell all of my templates in a combo with a discount. If you only want any of the individual packs, feel free to purchase them now. If you want the combo and can wait to get it, then you might want to hold off for three weeks and buy it then. You can check back to see if it is up or become a follower to get the email the day I upload them.

I am interested in buying you large bundle. I have heard a few bad reviews about the Oprah version of the videos, for example she speaks as if the audience is young children. Would your product work with the David Attenborough series? What did you think about the Oprah version?
April 9, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Tangstar Science
Tangstar Science  (TpT Seller)
I think adults have more of a preference for Attenborough, but I don't think it makes a difference to students. BBC U.K. and BBC U.S. use the same/very similar scenes and follow the same story arc for each organism so topics discussed are very similar. In the end, this is what will interest the students...not the nuances of narrative style - adults are the ones concerned by that. I also prefer Attenborough's narrative style, but when the Oprah Life DVDs were on sale at Christmas (and the Attenborough ones weren't) I knew I wanted them any way, and then I made worksheets for them. Kids still find them fascinating because the subject is interesting - I use one in my Gr.9 Science class and I use the one on plants as a refresher for my Gr.11 Bio class.

I use the rest on emergency supply teacher days....this is their real usefulness to me!

However, I wouldn't get the Attenborough Life DVDs for my Oprah Life Bundles. They don't match word for word which I think will be frustrating for students because they will need to fill in blanks on the worksheet.

Hope this helps.

I will take a look today.

I just reviewed the powerpoint notes and you are correct they do not match the powerpoint word for word. In the notes, instead of having them fill in the blanks for how to hold and carry the microscope, I gave them "Question #10. Describe how you should always carry a microscope." So that they could give a descriptive answer to the question instead of a fill in the blank.

If you would prefer a word for word fill in the blank section for this, then let me know and I will modify the notes, otherwise all the information in the powerpoint on arm and base can still be addressed and recorded on the student's powerpoint notes without having to change the document.

I created the Organizer using PowerPoint and though the Chart is in a grid form, each line is actually made by a separate black line. You will have to have some proficiency with PowerPoint, but not too much to be able to modify the PowerPoint.

Move the horizontal lines of the grid down so that you can make room for another row above. Copy and paste the line so that you have another line to delineate the area for the domains. Write the title above.

I don't have a facebook account. I have been focusing my efforts on Pinterest (which I just got) thinking it will help with marketing more than facebook. I think I can only focus on one thing at a time as I already spend too much time in front of the computer. Thanks for the invite. If you think I'm wrong about Pinterest vs. Facebook, please let me know and I'll rethink. Or if you think it's really important to have both maybe I'll try FB.

Do you have a unit about Newton and the three laws of motion? I really like your lesson format.

I don't specialize in physics....so unfortunately not. I'm sure there will be someone on TPT you can find. Thanks for thinking of me and inquiring.

I just downloaded and tried the PowerPoint. It works perfectly. I have had many other purchasers of this product. None reported a problem. Flickering does not sound like it's a problem with the product. It sounds like it either may be a Microsoft compatibility issue or an issue with the computer or monitor you are using.

I have these suggestions:
1) Try playing it on another computer that has PowerPoint 2010.
2) Double check that you are using PowerPoint 2010 or later.
3) If you are using an earlier version of PowerPoint, try saving the product as an earlier version (though this may cause some of the PowerPoint elements to change a bit).

Let me know if any of this works. If it does not. I will directly email you the PowerPoint saved as an earlier version.

I am teaching grade six Biodiversity this spring and I wondered which of your products (if any) have been aligned to the curriculum for this strand. I would love a set of task cards which address the curriculum expectations for the biodiversity topic.

I did not align my task cards to grade six Ontario standards. I use them in my Gr.9 Science Ecology Unit. The task cards would overlap Gr.6 and Gr.9 but are aligned for Gr.9.

I have looked many of your resources and bundle sets. Do you make custom orders? I am 4th grade teacher but I also teach Special ED and gifted/talented students. I teach in Georgia and follow the GPS. I find your materials to be interesting and colorful. I do teach the ecosystem.

Unfortunately, I do not make custom orders for elementary school. I teach highschool, so I only make products for TPT that I could use myself.

Thanks for the inquiry. I am pleased to know that you like my materials interesting.

As well, there are many other wonderful sellers in your grade range. Check out one called the Science Penguin. She sometimes makes me wish I taught elementary school science!

You may want to reevaluate the age appropriateness and add some lower grades to your listings. Ecology, microscopes, food webs, ecosystems, etc. are integrated into science with NGSS at earlier ages. You might make more sales with a broader age range. I like you ideas and resources-easy to differentiate with and could easily be used in learning centers or stations. I will be buying once I get bookkeeper's approval! BTW: I teach 6th grade science which encompasses life and environmental sciences. Your resources will be an nice addition to the curricula.

Thanks so much for your advice. I have begun to lower some of my products to include the 6th grade. However, I don't feel I can include too many different grades because the modifications that would need to be made by the buyer at either the higher grade end or the lower grade end would make my products less than practical. I prefer my products be used "out of the box" as opposed to having to tweak them too much. Although I do leave almost 99% of my products editable so that they can be modified if desired.

Are your powerpoints able to be used on a mac? I had trouble opening the preview of food chains on the mac

I made all my materials on Microsoft Office 2010 on a PC. I am not a mac user so I do not know if they are compatible or not.

I tried typing into google "powerpoint 2010 pc to mac" and I got lots of hits including this one.

Maybe something here will help you, but since I don't have a mac, I won't be able to know what problems you're having and help you troubleshoot.

Hi,
When you say, "YET", does that mean I can hope for lessons on those topics in the (near) future? I hope, I hope! ;)
Thanks,

Unfortunately, I have two new (high school) courses this semester and won't be touching TPT (in terms of materials development) until next semester.

YET probably means in the "distant" future, but thank you for inquiring and showing interest. I believe there are a lot of other amazing sellers on TPT who could probably serve you well. Good luck!

Take care,

Hello!
I am interested in your Water Cycle Bundle to use with my 5th graders. Is the content of your bundle too advanced for them?
Thanks!

Tangstar Science  (TpT Seller)
Most of it (90%) will be fine for them, but as it gets into the human effects on the water cycle, much of this will be too advanced for them. All the products in the bundle are editable so you can edit it to suit your needs.

Yet another product I am interested in! I have done a "this day in history" assignment with my students. Students were challenged if I gave them a specific date, so I like how this leaves the student with so many options! I also must say you have thought of and completed many of the fine details this newish teacher is thrilled to see! I would like to ask if it is possible to get the worksheets and related material for my specific content - Environmental Science and Biotechnology - one for each? I know I can make work the subjects provided but would prefer these specifics for clarity. Thank you for sharing so many great products!

I have not made any new products in a while as I have been swamped with school. I am at a semestered school and only found out 3 days before school started that I was getting 3 different preps only 1 of which I had taught before. So this month I decided to suspended all TPT stuff until the Christmas break. I will try to get to your specific request when I have some time - perhaps within the week. That's the best I can do for now. Hopefully you will still have a chance to use the product for you classes. Thanks for your continued support of my products.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After 13 years of full-time teaching as a science and biology teacher, I have come up with more than a few fun and effective tricks of the trade that help both my students and other teachers. I hope to share them with you. :) I have 12 years of full time teaching experience with the Toronto District School Board as a Science and Biology Teacher. I have taught ESL, applied(general), academic, enriched, gifted, as well as college and university preparation science and biology courses.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Structured, organized, visually oriented, with a lot of reinforcement in the form of worksheets, crosswords, task cards, games, interesting activities and projects as well as PowerPoints with a lot of connections to real life.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

No one wants to see me brag. ;)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Honors B.Sci - Specializing in Pharmacology and majoring in English - from the University of Toronto B.Ed - from OISE/University of Toronto

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have organized and taken students to do a March break biology field trip to Costa Rica. While there we studied 5 different rainforest ecosystems and spent a third of our trip doing a cultural exchange by living with a community of organic pineapple farmers. I am currently a supervisor of the Gardening Club at my school. I have previously also been a supervisor of an Environmental Club.
