I just looked at the Grade 5 standards for Arkansas and while the majority are addressed in the All in One, they are not ALL addressed. As I was reading them, I got a few ideas for activities I will add to the All in One Bundle (which contains free updates for life). I hope this helps with your decision making.

Hello Ari,
One of my friends who teachers Science recommended to check out your products since she is buying a lot from you. Well, I am so overwhelmed and excited but need your guidance... This will be my first year teaching Science in 3rd grade, I am in TX as well and we will be going through the new textbook training next week. I also will be teaching Social Studies and writing... My colleagues are recommending to teach one week of Science and then next week dedicate to SS, so at least if we have a project we can a finish something. What would you recommend? Also, I will need to teach writing every day for 30 min. and then l will have 50 min. to spend on Science per period. Since we share same TEKS which of your products would you recommend me to get to definitely cover the TEKS in a fun way and which interactive notebook would you recommend me? I am worried that I don't have enough class time to incorporate all of the cool products you have. Thanks a lot! Marina

Hello
I am new to the site and I wanted to mention how impressed I am with all your products. I will be starting interactive notebooks with my 7th grade students for the first time ever this year. I was wondering if you could provide some suggestions on products I should start with? I teach 7th grade Science in South Carolina. We will cover the following topics: Scientific Method, Cells, Genetics, Human Body Systems, Chemistry, and Ecology. Seeing how this is my first time having students create these notebooks I am concerned about biting off more than I can chew but I really want them to have strong, organized science resources.

I bought the Math Teks assessment for 4th grade back in November of 2013. Did you update this one with the new math Teks? (I'm talking about the one you are blogging recently) If so, If I re-download it would I get the new version?

Hi Janna,
I discontinued the original version of that product last summer and created a new version with the new TEKS that was released last July. If you own this, you're already got it. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Grade-4-TEKS-Based-Math-Assessments-and-Student-Data-Graphs-752426

Buyer re: The Ultimate Interactive Science Notebook Kit
Hey, a few of the pictures you put in are a bit blurry, if you could retake and re-upload them, it would be a little easier to read them.

Hello! Do you know if Ohio and Texas have the same Grade 4 NGSS?

Hello! I am interested in your "All in One Science Interactive Notebook Bundle", as well as your "The Ultimate Science Weekly Five Resource". Would these two be good to use together or would it be too much? I only have a half hour per day allotted to science, so I wondered if the interactive notebook would be good to use to introduce the topic and the weekly five would be a good resource for the rest of the week? What are your thoughts?

That sounds smart, Kristin. I think that would work well.

Hi Science Penguin,

I just purchased the Mad Science package and I absolutely love it!!
Everything printed beautifully except for the "Imagine" poster under the Engineer Design. I printed it several times but it has two black boxes over the letters m-a-g. If you could email me a new poster I would be so grateful.
Thank you!

Hi Rachel,

Sorry you're having trouble.
Are you on a Mac? If you are, make sure that the file is open in Adobe Reader and not Preview.
Since this might happen with future files you download on TpT, I recommend checking this blog post. It has great tips to help you with saving and printing files. http://2ndgradestuff.blogspot.com/2013/04/help-i-cant-save-or-print-my-tpt-file.html

Let me know if that doesn't work.

Hi! Sorry to bug you with a trivial question that I should already know. Your power points are excellent (I know because I've purchased many of them). I am adding my first power point product to my store, but can't seem to get the fonts to stay the same. How do you get your fonts to stay the same in the power point? I've already tried embedding them, but they still are not sticking.
Thanks!

Hi! I don't use any animation, so I just make the PowerPoint then save each file as a picture. Then I put the images in a new PowerPoint. Does that make sense?

Hi I love your creations! I downloaded the freebie for Classroom Inventories and am not able to open it. It says it needs a password. This is the second thing that has happened on. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Pamela,

This is usually because your Adobe Reader needs to be updated. Check out this blog post for more info: http://2ndgradestuff.blogspot.com/2013/04/help-i-cant-save-or-print-my-tpt-file.html

Thanks,

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught fourth grade for one year and fifth grade for five years. Now, I work with teachers on improving science education through workshops and my blog.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I differentiate instruction as often as possible with small learning groups and stations. I try to incorporate labs and investigations, vocabulary study, and discussion about concepts into each science unit.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm excited to be on the Top Sellers lists on TpT and know that I've been able to help so many teachers and students! I read all of the feedback I receive and am blown away by the kindness shown by my TpT followers.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have my B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin and have my M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction from UTSA.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm a full-time blogger, curriculum designer, and penguin.
