McKenzie Robinson  (TpT Seller)
Hello! My name is McKenzie Robinson and I am a special education teacher at East Midvale Elementary in Midvale, Utah. This past year, I spearheaded a project at our school to provide parents with resources to assist their children at home with academics and ran across your wonderfully designed materials!

Our school population comes from low-socioeconomic families of multiple ethnicities and nationalities that are highly transient. Our school was motivated to empower parents to work with their children on academic skills at home. However, when we encouraged parents to work with students at home, we were often met with the question, “How?” Many parents would love to assist their students but lack the knowledge of how to do so other than trying to complete homework. Other parents find that helping their students with homework results in conflict and frustration. We wanted to provide parents with a positive way to assist their students in academic skills.

Since developing this project for our school, the word has spread and many others are interested in implementing similar programs and are looking for assistance. I would like to share the resources I found with them.
Would you be willing to let me list your website and resources on this list of activities to share with others? I love your designs and feel they can truly help families around the world.

Please let me know whether or not you give me permission to link your website/blog/activity. I would be happy to share the final list with you as well.

Thank you for your hard work to develop resources to assist children and teachers! You are truly appreciated!

Sincerely,
McKenzie Robinson

Buyer re: Marvelous Myths - Greek Myth Reading - Unit 2
I bought the myth unit recently and was quite excited to use it. However, there are MANY errors. My class has read three myths so far (Zeus, Athena, and Icarus) and each myth has typos. Most are small, but in the Icarus myth, there are some major errors (i.e. "Daedalus was sentences to love on an island work for King..."). These prevent my third graders from being able to read it accurately. In addition, the family trees are not organized correctly. I am very disappointed in the quality of this unit. Is there an updated, revised and correct version? I noticed feedback from other buyers that this is not the first time the complaint has been made. I also bought this in April, so corrections should have been made.

i would like to purchase you pre-primer sight word game to add to the freebie, but i want letter cards for all the letters of the alphabet as well. the freebie is missing the letters:
g, j, k, p, q, s, u, x, y, z

if i purchase the pre-primer set will i still be missing some of the letters of the alphabet? i'd love a set of the ladybug cards w/ all the letters so my preschool can use the uppercase magnet letters we have to match w/ the lowercase and my kinder son can play Guess the Word.

I'm looking at your myth unit, and was wondering if there were any myths included that I might be able to find a parallel nonfiction article on. I'm trying to locate resources, such as a myth and nonfiction article, that would both be explanations of a certain topic. I'd like student to write about the similarities and differences found in both texts. Thanks!

I just downloaded your unit on matter and was wondering what you do with the cheese and orange and whay the mystry substance is?? And what are your ides for the last page, "Creating Something new?" One more thing, How do you use the "Let's make a Prediction?" page? What are they trying to preict?
Thanks so much! It really is cute!!! I just want to use it correctly.

Sorry I am just now getting back to you!

If you ever need to reference this, I have a post about it on my blog at: http://thelocoteacher.blogspot.com/2012/03/im-90s-kid.html

The Cheese - I shred the cheese with a grater so it goes from a solid to a solid.
The Orange - I cut it open, so it is still a solid. But then I squeeze the juice from it so it is now also a liquid.
The mystery substance is pudding. The mix is a solid and the milk is a liquid, and we discuss what state of matter the end result is.

I use the Let's make a Prediction page for the experiments we do. So if we were changing a solid into a liquid (ice into water), I would have them write and draw the steps of the experiment. So they would draw the materials in the beginning (ice). Then they would predict what was going to happen when I explain the experiment, such as adding heat. Then they would draw what the end result was when the experiment was over (water). The last box is for them to explain if their prediction was correct or not.

Creating something new was just an additional page if you have further experiments you would like to personally do.

I hope that helps! I apologize again for my late response.

Hi! Thanks so much for sharing this matter resource. I think the last page of the book should be about changing a gas in two ways, but the word in the box says 'solid.' Then the first sentence mentions changing a gas, but the second sentence says solid again. The matter book is amazing! I just wanted to let you know about the last page.

if the fraction is 3/4, a non-example would be leaving 3/4 of it NOT shaded and 1/4 shaded. I talk with my students a lot about easy mistakes to make or rules that are easy to forget, such as counting the shaded part or drawing equal pieces. So that is the non-example is for, for my class at least.
