In the Middle
In the Middle  (TpT Seller)
I am loving this concept and want to use it to introduce the UGRR to my 8th graders. I know my brain is tired but I am having trouble understanding how to start it.

I get that I am putting them in 6 groups but Group 1 has the starting spot of "After a full day's work, go back to your cabin to rest." And, Group 2 has "Go to your cabin to work on the freedom quilt". Doesn't that send 2 groups of students to the same "In Your Cabin" card spot in the classroom? It seems like I am sending my students to only cabin, plantation, the road or the woods to start. Is that okay? Is that what is supposed to happen? Then from there they farm out to wherever the dice tells them to go? I'm sorry. I know your directions are clear but I'm having one of those days!

Teaching In the Fast Lane  (TpT Seller)
In the Middle,
I totally understand, I have been having one of those weeks. You are correct that two groups will be sen to the cabin. I had to do this, otherwise it would of sent one group directly to freedom. After they have each taken a turn they should disperse nicely.
I hope this helps, and please let me know if there is any way that I can help!

Hi,

So I was wondering if I could use your fortune teller template to use not just for personal classroom use, but also commercially. (If you mentioned that in your description, I may have missed it.) I would use it to add text. Of course, I would give you credit for your graphic design! Thanks. Karen at Growing Smart Readers

I like to use the QR codes on the first day in order to let students start building their background knowledge on their own before I begin to give them information. Each QR takes students to a different website about an important event so that they can read a bit about the event.

Just curious about the content of the word problems. I couldn't tell from your preview what type of problems these are. I teach 3rd grade and am looking for mostly multi-step addition, subtraction and multiplication problems. Our students have not been introduced to fractions or division yet (coming up in January). Would most of these problems be along the lines I am looking for?
November 30, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Teaching In the Fast Lane
Teaching In the Fast Lane  (TpT Seller)
Thank you for your interest. The problems at the beginning of the year (August) begin with addition and subtraction and then work their way into multiplication (October) and division (November.) By the December set there are also some simple fractions like one half or one third when given an easily divisible number. The sets are very much mixed, and include many problems for each operation, so while more often than not the problems would fit your needs there will be some with more advanced skills included.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can help in any way.

The scaffolded notes mentioned are the different levels of structure included in the fold-up. You have the option of using a blank template, a template with headers, or a template that is already needed.

The information is pretty squeezed in there, however if you copied the templates at a larger %, probably about 120% there may be room.

I hope that this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thank you for letting me know. I have just checked the file and reloaded it. Please try again. If it is still asking for a password, then make sure that you are running the latest version of Adobe reader. If not that may be causing the issue. It is a free download to update to the latest version.
If this doesn't work, then please contact TPT technical support. They are amazing at figuring this kind of stuff out.
Please let me know if I can help with anything else!

Your Map Skills FanNPick looks fun, but when I try to save it, it asks for a password/permission to download it. It is one of your free downloads, so I'm not quite sure why it doesn't let me download.

Buyer
Hi.....I bought the TEKS based Yearlong Morning Work and when I try to print it out, it keeps starting over in the middle. Have you had this problem before? (It could be my outdated computer :)

Thank you for the purchase! I have not heard about this happening before, and have not experienced it personally. I would try updating Adobe Reader first to see if that helps. If not, please contact TPT tech support. They are amazing and always helpful.
I hope this works for you!

Kayne T. re: Year Long Morning Work
I have some questions regarding the management of this activity: Do you collect these when they are finished? Or do you go over it with the class? Do you give a certain amount of time to complete this? What if they don't finish?
Thanks,
Kayne Tornetta

Thank you for the questions!

I do collect them each day. Most days we go over them as a class and make corrections, but every once in a while I will collect them without going over them to keep students accountable.

I used this for true morning work when the students came in before they began their stations. We checked them later on in the day. I did not have any issues with students not able to finish them. I would say that 5-10 is a more than reasonable amount of time for them to be completed each day.

I hope that this helps, please let me know if you have any further questions.

It is not password protected by me. A fix that usually helps me is to update Adobe Reader. I hope this helps!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am in the midst of my fifth year of fourth grade at a suburban school in Texas. I have the best students in the world that make my job so much fun!

MY TEACHING STYLE

In our classroom I try to provide as much choice to students as possible. I employ a lot of stations and tictactoe style activities in which students can choose how they would like to show me what they have learned. Our school just got our first set of Ipads and I am anxious to incorporate these into our classroom as well. Cooperative learning and community building are the glue in our classroom and I will never give either up. I operate on the principles that every student wants to talk, move, and have fun so I try to incorporate as much of each into every day we have together. Visit my blog to see what is going on in our classroom at http://4thgraderacers.blogspot.com/

Teachers Fellow Graduate

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended Texas State University to earn my degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a teaching certificate in early childhood through fourth grade with an additional certification in english as a second language. I enjoyed Texas State University so much that I immediately applied and was accepted into the Teacher Fellows program there to earn my masters. Accordingly, I was able to complete my first year of teaching while attending graduate courses and completing an action research project. I earned a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction in this program that also instilled in me the necessity for cooperative learning and community building in the classroom.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

When I am not working on my classroom I enjoy reading, traveling, and racing cars. It is currently one of my goals to visit all fifty states and all seven continents, but I won't stop after reaching that goal.
