I just purchased several of your items and I am excited to use them. They look great and are just what I needed, but I have 2 concerns. First, on page 8 the title above the huts says "Mods". All of the other titles match the information below. I am just wondering if you meant it to say Hut. Secondly, on page 11 in the part about donations it should say "To whom?" not "To who?". I am hoping you will fix that before I print it out. Thanks so much. I am glad i found your store!

Hi there!

I was wondering if the lesson included differentiating instruction material and/or activities?

Thank you,

Teacher Trap  (TpT Seller)
Thanks for asking! I think the lessons lend themselves to differentiation but no, I did not include specific activities or ideas. Most of the activities in the unit can be done with partners or in small groups. When I use this unit, that is probably the most common way I differentiate. I would meet with the groups that needed my support and adjust their learning goals if needed.

No, sorry. In the Texas 3rd grade TEKS we don't teach decimals yet. Although I think the new revised TEKS that we'll start using next year do include decimals. So I guess I'll be updating the unit for next year!

Teacher Trap
Teacher Trap  (TpT Seller)
Not stupid. My teammate asked the same question. :) Just print out the 2 pages and leave them just like that, both facing up, same direction. Then place both on the top feeder tray of your copier but do it sideways so they feed in long ways. Usually we feed the pages in long side first, but you need short first. Run front to back and it should line up perfectly to make a 4 flap foldable. I hope I didn't confuse you more!

I just purchased several of your products and I'm excited to use them! (Phonics flipbook, Author Study Made Easy, Mini Book sets) I read through almost your entire blog, as well. I teach 3rd grade in Texas and love reading about how others are doing things. I didn't find a contact place on your blog, so my question may seem odd here. I was wondering if you could write a few posts about how you do your reading time, specifically your "choice time". I think I like your approach better than how I'm doing things...less chaos. How do you introduce choices or explain how to do tasks? Is that apart from your hour block? What is the Poetry folder (from your reading choice literacy center cards)? Do you have a sample list of the choices and which ones you offer as a selection? I'm dying to give your routine a try if I can figure out the choices. I feel like that's where I'll get bogged down. Thanks for any help!

Why is my PDF blurry? There are black lines where the images should be.
Newly created PDF files need to be opened with the latest Adobe Reader software. You can get that for free here:
http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/

For Mac Users:
The default PDF application on a Mac is called Preview. This program is not compatible with newer PDF files. You must take these steps to open your PDF with Adobe Reader:

1. Highlight the PDF product icon with one click.

2. Go to "File" at the top of the screen.

3. Choose "Open with."

4. Select "Adobe Reader."

5. You may be prompted to make Adobe the default program when opening PDFs. This is a good idea so you won't have to repeat the steps above!

If this does not work, please contact TPT support. Unfortunately, emailing the file when not help. The problem is not the file.

Hope this helps! :)

My question has to do with your room arrangement. I saw pictures on your blog but didn't see a way to contact you. I am just curious about the layout as a whole. I have tried groups, different arrangements as well and nothing has worked. As we head back to school I would like to have a better arrangement and think something like yours might work. :) Thanks for any help you can give.

I love my room arrangement this year. I will work on updating the blog with new pictures but the basic of it is two long L-shaped rows that line the main big carpet in the room and then 3 group tables with 4-5 at each. I make sure to put my easily distracted kiddos or talkers at my "front row" L-shaped tables and the kids who can handle it sit at the group tables. It's working great this year! Pictures on the way :)

I bought your Animals & Ecosystems Zoo Project a while back and could not wait to use it will my students for the field trip we take to the zoo. I was wondering if I would be able to get a copy of this product in a format where I could make some slight changes? I always have my students pick an animal from the zoo we visit on a field trip. They do a report on the animal and then share what they learned while visiting the zoo as a class. I am changing the next part to match yours, where they get into groups depending on their animals habitat to do the ecosystem project. I LOVE THIS IDEA. Is there any way I could get the packet in a format where I could change some of the wording and research topics?? I promise it will only be used for me and me only. I just really don't want to retype this whole thing to fit my needs. Especially since you designed it to look so wonderful. My email is mwashington@washoeschools.net if this is possible.

Just start small, the kids catch on really fast! Review the symbols (square=100, stick=10, dot=1) and show an easy card. Begin by asking, how many hundreds? how many tens? how many ones? and jot down the answer to each so that the kids can see how to "build" the number. The kids must learn to first add the hundreds, then tens, then ones to create the number. My students love these! :)

In Texas we use the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) so my unit is based on those standards. Just from looking on the common core website, I noticed some very similar standards in the place value strand:

Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.¹

CCSS.Math.Content.3.NBT.A.1 Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.
CCSS.Math.Content.3.NBT.A.2 Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.

Buyer re: Author Study Made Easy
Hi, I am looking for an author study packet for 4th grade chapter books read alouds.. But I saw that you said this works best for picture books. Do you think it will still work for chapter books as well?

Thanks!

Oops, sorry, I was MIA this summer! Parts of the author study packet will work with chapter books, but I think the materials would be most powerful with picture books. There are pages for students to compare multiple books by looking at characters, plot, setting etc. and I'm not sure how they'd be able to do that with chapter books simply because of the amount of time it would take to read multiple books. It might work if you did a year-long study and added on overtime...

Ms. Dupre,

I just bought your 2nd grade math review stations and I am so excited to use it! I did have one question though: I don't see a recording page for the Money: Shopping for Solutions center and I was wondering if you have one or if that was a center that didn't have one? If you could let me know that would be great. Thanks so much!!

Hi Lauren,

I hope the stations work well for you! I didn't include a recording sheet for that station. Whenever I can, I try not to use a recording sheet just because it's more paper to deal with in the classroom. But if you want one, you could just have the kids create a t-chart in their math journal and keep track of their work.

Let me know if you think the station will be better with a recording sheet and I will add one. Thanks for the question!

:)

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Taught 1st and Pre-1st at Title 1 Professional Development School. Curriculum and Instructional Specialist K-5 for 4 years. Currently teaching 3rd grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal is to provide meaningful learning experiences for kids. I'm not a fan of the way elementary instruction has deteriorated into a sequence of skill-based lessons and practice, rather than units of active inquiry and investigation. I want my students to connect to their learning and have the opportunity to apply it in exciting and memorable ways.
