Graphics heavy products are sometimes an issue, especially on school network printers I've discovered. I generally just do a few pages at a time and that seems to help. Because you sent a general q/a I'm not able to see which product it is. Let me know if you have issues still.

Looks great! I was wondering if all the pages that need a written response have the dotted lines?
June 11, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Tessa Maguire
Tessa Maguire  (TpT Seller)
The pictures are probably the best explanation. They're graphic organizers so most of them do not have writing lines on them as I want them to be usable in a variety of grades. However, as the picture shows, a few do have questions that aren't exactly in the same organizer format and those do have writing lines.

I purchased your number sense brain teasers and there is a mistake on number 8. Clue 2 says, "The bigger number is in the ones places, so the answer should be 13, not 31. Just thought you might want to change the answer guide.

Hello Tessa-

I am about to buy your 3rd grade word problems bundle. I was curious what method you use to teach solving word problems. Do you do the Singapore Math Model Drawing method or something else?

Thank you. I love your products.

We don't do Singapore or any set program. I just teach students to analyze the problem and do strategies like pictures and analyzing the start, change, and end.

I noticed that you have a full year set for 2nd and 3rd grade of the "Common Core Math Warm-Ups." I did see that you have a "set 2" for first grade, but couldn't ever find "set 1." Will you have a full year set for 1st grade like you do for the other two grades? I am really interested in this.

Hi, set one is here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Common-Core-Math-Warm-Up-220522

There won't be a full year set because I think most of the kindergarten skills are not easily applied to paper and I think the format is better suited towards the end of the year.

Hi, page 59 was an incorrect for page 60, so I deleted page 59. Thanks for letting me know.

As for the others, thanks for keeping a close eye, and letting me know, but those were not actually errors. Because the students are drawing cards, they will be working with different numbers on each one. I did not want to do higher than adding or subtracting 2 or 3, mentally, because that is much more difficult for students.

I apologize for not responding sooner. The email got overlooked!

I love that you took the time to make a product that will help us with close reads. I know that you made this product for two books, but could it be used with just one of the books if I am short on time or are both texts meant to be used for compare and contrast or other reasons?

The two books have separate resources in the set and aren't intertwined. So, yes, you are able to use it for just one book and not both, if you wish.

Do you have more information on how you schedule your reading groups? I was looking at the 6 groups w/ 4 slots & I was a little confused. I assume these are set up like centers. How do they rotate? On Monday (for example), where would groups 1 & 2 go/start? Do you have an additional center? I'm a little confused on how they would rotate in to centers. I've stared at this chart & scrambled my brain....AND I know the answer is something simple.
October 22, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Tessa Maguire
Tessa Maguire  (TpT Seller)
That chart I use just for scheduling the time with me. So, what's shown is the time with me. Depending on if you do centers, Daily 5, or something else determines how you would fill the other slots. I plan on doing a blog post soon on my rotations, but I know not everyone can follow the same format. With 4 slots you can do yourself, journal, word work, and computer for example. If they are not with you at all one day, you could add in an additional center like partner reading for example. I hope this helps. Feel free to email me if I still didn't make sense. talesfromoutsidetheclassroom@gmail.com

I wanted to try your Common Core Math Review for my morning review. I love how they're tied to the Common Core. However, I cannot do it because there are no pages that are easy enough for the beginning of the year. They all contain concepts that we haven't covered yet. I would hate to buy the second grade one and have parents see second grade standard numbers on them. So now I have two tubs worth of copies that I can't use. I'm going to try again, maybe after Christmas. How did you intend for them to be used?

Tessa Maguire
Tessa Maguire  (TpT Seller)
I'm sorry you're disappointed. Everyone that purchases uses them for a different reason. Myself, I would use the second grade one for the first quarter and then I would use the third grade ones for the rest of the year. I think reviewing the previous year's standards at the beginning of the year is essential and I wouldn't be concerned about what the parents say, but that's just my opinion. You could also cover the standards numbers if you were concerned. Many people have bought the yearlong set and have used them yearlong and have been very happy. It's all dependent on your students and their abilities.

Thanks for the quick response! Ok. . .I understand. I guess you wouldn't be interested in making alphabet strip editable? I have a font that would work.

Also, I just found you on tpt and your stuff is amazing! I've been looking for a Daily Math Warm-Up that I like and yours is great! Did I overlook the Set 1 bundle for 1st grade? I didn't see it in your products.

I could make it editable! Will you email me at talesfromoutsidetheclassroom@gmail.com. That'll help me keep track.

This is Set 1 that review the K & 1 standards. There are only two sets as I don't believe it should be used for most of the year in 1st grade.

I love your chevron decor kit. Question about the alphabet. . .is there a way you can change it to a d'nealian font?

Licensing a d'nealian font is quite expensive! As of right now, I can't justify it. I realize that means I'm missing out on some sales because of it.

What's the common core standard?

Hi there,
I believe these centers support the NBT standards for both 3rd and 4th grades. The Common Core standards are overarching and don't have specific skills laid out many times. However, for place value understanding that these standards call for, I believe more lower level skills such as these are needed.

Buyer re: Classroom Decor- Yellow and White Chevron
I recently purchased this pack! I really like the number cards and was wondering if there is anyway the number words could be added to the cards?
