Would it be possible to include a table of content page for the word Problems SET 1 & 2 BUNDLE {Grades 2-3 Common Core} to show what operation is being used to prevent having to scan through each page each time? This would allow me to be able to mix the problems up as needed.

Do you have any tips on when you have shown all the strategies but now have some kiddos a bit confused by the variety?
February 25, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Tori's Teacher Tips
Tori's Teacher Tips  (TpT Seller)
Yes! I have that happen a lot! I would then talk to the children individually and see the one they are the most comfortable with and have them focus on just one. If they are not sure- the split strategy is the most logical one. Make sure they are solid with the one they chose. Not all kids can use all strategies. Many will need to zero in on one :). I hope that helps a bit. I'm so glad you asked!! ~Tori

I see this is part of an Educents bundle. Question: If I were to purchase this through Educents and then sometime in the future you revise the product, would I have the option to download the revised version? (I'm thinking about how if one purchases through TpT and a seller revises, because we own it, we can go to "my purchases" and download the updated product.)

I just purchased your common core two and three digit addition strategies. This is all new to me but I do know that your split strategy is called break apart for us. I could just white-out the split word but figured you might be able to do it more easily and then it would be clean. I am so confused by all of this so I want to at least use the same language as our text book!
Thanks for a great product!

I have a lot of first grade teachers commenting that they (the kids) loved them. They take minutes to assemble and be printed in color or black and white. There is such a variety that you can use them all year. In this pack there is even a Christmas one AND I have a thanksgiving one in my store for free for you to try out!! Hope that helps :)

Hi Tori
I just received my first job offer to teach kindergarten. I will be teaching at an on reserve aboriginal school without a lot of teaching resources. Im am thrilled to have be given the opportunity to teach at this high risk school but my lack of resources to get me started is ...well lets just say non existent. Would you be interested in donating this package to me so I can bulk up my kindergarten resources?? Since this is my first job I do not have a lot extra money for teacher supplies. I would be so very grateful for any teaching tools you would be able to help me with. Hoping you could help make my first year of teaching kindergarten successful.
Thank You so Much. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Good question! They might if they are cut down and glued sideways. There are also the words by themselves you could have your students glue that and "take notes" adding the rest of the info. OR you might be able to shrink them down on a copier?? Not sure! You have me thinking though!!!

Tori's Teacher Tips  (TpT Seller)
Hi! GREAT questions!! The pretest is included- I use the actual list and fold it in half. We talk about honesty and not looking at the words on the other side. I like to do it this way becasue then when they unfold the paper the words are in print right there and there's no questions from the parents as to what the words should be :) I do have a post-test paper I'd be happy to send you if there is not one in this set (there's 160 some pages and I can't remember right now if the post test made it in!!). We have been doing this EXACT pack this year and I have been VERY happy with it. We are not into the common core quite yet, however I have that mind set as it is coming. The challenge set of words are very approprite and I feel like the "regular" list is also very approporite. Here is a list of all the skills/sounds covered:
Short a/i, Short o/e, Short u,Short vowel review, TH, SH, CH, WH, St (blends), long a/e, long i/e, long o/e
long u/e, ay/ai, oa, ee/ea, y=e, y=i Plurals, old, doubling, ou/ow,ow= long o
oo-short, oo-long, ew, igh, aw/au,
r controlled, compound words, days of week, irregular plurals

Hope that helps!!

Thanks Tori for the info! I teach Envisions math, so I was wondering then... what about the paper work that is part of the lesson? Is that a center or do you give them time for that as well?

Another good question Jenna! Most of this is covered in this product... but any paper work I usually have the students do BEFORE they are able to choose their "games." I have my high guys working on something more challenging and my average guys are working on a follow up sheet from the lesson.

If you can find more time for math that would be GREAT! But like I said before, you can really do a version of this with any time limit as long as you have about 30 minutes. :)
Please let me know if you have more questions... keep them coming! :)

Tori's Teacher Tips  (TpT Seller)
Hi! Included is a complete list of "word wall words" that match the spelling rule of the week. The words are designed to show the kids that many words have these particular sounds! The phonics skills that are covered each week are:

Short a/i, Short o/e, Short u,Short vowel review, TH, SH, CH, WH, St (blends), long a/e, long i/e, long o/e
long u/e, ay/ai, oa, ee/ea, y=e, y=i Plurals, old, doubling, ou/ow,ow= long o
oo-short, oo-long, ew, igh, aw/au,
r controlled, compound words, days of week, irregular plurals

I created this for a second grade classroom- but can be adapted for 1st or 3rd depending! If you are looking more for "sight words" or "high frequency words" (like dolch) I have that in a separate item in my store (not that I am trying to push another item on you!!). Please let me know if this answers your question or if you have any others!! Thanks for your interest! :) Tori

Tori's Teacher Tips  (TpT Seller)
Hi! I think it is very important to have mixed problems, however, not for a timed test purpose. Children do need to learn how to switch gears and distinguish between addition and subtraction but that should not have a specific time limit. I have my math facts separately because I want the child to be able to focus on one fact at a time. I LOVE LOVE the way I do facts now :) Determining what specific fact the child should focus on has really improved my student's mastery of the facts!
Just an FYI... these packs have both been reduced by $2 (each!!) and will be on sale sun and monday!! :)

Tori's Teacher Tips  (TpT Seller)
Hi! Yes, I write the message on a "chart type" paper. I found that the really large paper was too costly and a waste of paper. At my school we had paper that was slightly larger than construction size paper. I put that paper on a board to make it sturdy and placed it on my easel. It seemed to work well. Now with all the technology (and I have a SMART board) I'm thinking of creating a smart version of this- how fun would that be! You can just load the word document you purchased onto your white board (via projector) or into Smart notebook and do it that way! :) Hope this helps!

Do you write the morning message on the board or chart paper?

Buyer re: Writing lesson~Fancy Words
I was wondering if you have cafe lessons for the other strategies: fluency,accuracy....etc


Also, what does this download include? Are there words to put up on the bulletin board?

Hi! I have so many ideas for all the cafe strategies, I just don't have them "sellable" yet. I would be happy to get anything that you are particularly interested in ready for you. What grade do you teach? What would you start with?

This lesson is SO fun! I do it as a part of cafe and work on writing for daily 5. It does have a large group of words included and the steps needed to create the bulletin board!

Please let me know what you are looking for and I can help! :)

I'm SO glad you asked! I have a list of all the spelling patters listed here. Each week is a new pattern with 2 lists, homework and activities to do. I have been very happy with the progression of the lists. Please let me know if you would like any further info :)

I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie as well as your blog..

Here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products. First, add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page. (Is this a center activity? Do the children do all of the cards? Etc.) List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product. You could make the second page a Table of Contents.

Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also, number your pages.

If you have time, I’d love to see what you think of my freebies listed below.

If you would prefer a math freebie, I have several at my store you can download.

Welcome to TPT, and good luck with selling!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 15th year teaching. Wow, where did the time go? I have taught 7 years in first grade and I am currently on my 8th year in second grade. Which do I like better you ask? I have reasons to love them both! I think first grade made me the teacher I am today. My heart is in second though. I am lucky to work in a wonderful school with wonderful students!
