Those were just part of the literature circle studies we did in class with our dystopian novels. I use the lit circle packet that is a freebie for those. Hope that helps!

Do you have a TPT version of your inferencing Airhead activity for interactive notebooks? I would love to use it in my classroom.

That was a product I purchased from another TpT seller. I didn't want to use as many copies as her original and wanted it to fit in my ISNs, so I redesigned it as a foldable. Sorry that it isn't something I can put on TpT.

Sure! Send me an email at rseldomridge@caldwellschools.com and I will send it to you along with the name of the font that I used. It is on my personal laptop, so I will send it as soon as I get home from working at school or the college.

I went in and made the prezi public. You can search for it under my name (Randy Seldomridge). I think the you tube videos that I have it linked to are no longer available. I have updated it twice with new videos since posting the project to TpT. I am currently at my other job, but will try to relink the videos tonight when I get home.

I apologize for the troubles you have experienced. If you would provide me with your email address and something else you would like from my store, I will be more than happy to send that to you to make up for the frustration over the prezi not working.

Thanks!

For some reason only one of the videos in the poetry prezi work and I was really looking forward to using it! Is there another way I can access it?

Try this link listed below. I am new at this downloading and sharing a prezi thing and I so did not do it correctly. I had to update a couple of videos that were no longer available with you tube. Please let me know if this works (hopefully) or does not work (most likely) and I will try again.

Thanks for keeping me straight!

Buyer re: Genre Review Task Cards - SMARTboard Version
Hi!
I follow your blog and enjoy hearing about your teaching triumphs (and challenges, too!). I purchased the smartboard set of the genre flash cards. Thought it was a great idea. However, I'm not sure how to allow students to see the selection and the choices all on one screen. Am I not using it right? I can't get the selected text big enough for students to see without modifying every "card." Am I doing something wrong? Should I just print the choices and just let them see the text? Seems like I'd still have to modify every card...I think the font choice doesn't help matters.
Thanks -
Jane

If you click on full screen mode, it will show the question card and choices, then students can move the correct answer onto the question card. I hope this helps and makes sense.

But you are oh so right! I went to use it with my students this week and that font is horrible! I will be updating it with an easier to read font. Once I do, you can download the newer, easier to read version from your purchases tab. I am so sorry and did not realize last year when I created it how hard those things were to read. I plan to work on it this weekend.

Howdy,

How do I access the poetry prezi? Do I need to download something first? Or do you have a link to the online presentation?

Thanks

Please try this link listed below. I obviously do not know what I am doing with downloading a Prezi. I am so sorry that it did not work and hopefully you can access it here.

As it states on my blog, that is from a foldables book by Dinah Zike that can be found at her website. The book is titled Physical Geography and Map Skills. I did not create nor do I own that venn diagram to share.

Buyer re: Autobiography Project - The Story of Me
Hi. I teach 6th grade Social Studies, and have been following your blog. I too use INB. Do you have any materials on here that go along with the SS INB? Also-would this biography project be appropriate in a 6th grade SS class? Kind of like, "History of Me..." Thanks so much.

I do not have anything that I have created for my SS INB. Most everything I used in it was from InspirEd Educators. A few of the geography stuff I found on the internet and all of the foldables are from Dinah Zike. I am kind of lazy like that - this was my first year teaching SS and I was just trying to survive in a new grade level, teaching two subjects, and a new subject.

As far as the autobiography project, it is more like a year-long writing assignment where students write about their life before they were born, when they were little, their current life, and finally their goals/dreams for the future. I like the "History of Me" idea and think it could work that way for you.
