Hi Trista, I'd like to invite you to join a Pinterest board reserved for NBCTs to offer free products and ideas.

If you want to take a look, here's my Pinterest link: http://www.pinterest.com/annegardner4/

I've found that you would have to follow all my boards for me to be able to link and invite you.

Happy New Year! :) Anne Gardner

Buyer re: Adjectives Comparison Chart: Color, What Kind, How Many
Thank you for creating a graphic organizer but I can not use it because in 4th grade the students must list adjectives in a proper order and your graphic organizer does not list them in the correct order. The order should be Article, Number, Opinion, Size, Age, Shape, Color, Origin, Material, and Purpose. You would need to list "How Many" 1st, "Size" 2nd, "Color" 3rd, and "What Kind" 4th.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and downloading my free product. Hmm. What is your question? Are you asking me to change what I produced based on research or are you sharing what your district has outlined as important for your fourth graders?

I can not get the Great Kapok Tree ppt to download properly. The companion comes out fine but the ppt gives error messages. I have tried it on different machines and there is no difference. Any suggestions?

Buyer re: Chalkspot Back to School Upper Elementary Desk Tag: Sea Blue
Hi again,

I am referring to the Upper Elementary desk tag in Sea Blue. My initial question did not contain this key detail!

Thanks again,

Hi. I do not offer the desk tag in b/w. however, you should be able to print the tags on your color printer in grayscale. Color printers offer this option under printer settings/color options. Grayscale shows the differences between colors but in black and white. I hope my response was helpful.

Hello Trista,

I love the desk tags for fourth grade. Do you offer them in black and white? I am trying to cut production costs down, as I will be printing and laminating them at home.

Thanks,
MB in Chicago

Buyer re: Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa: The Lights of the Holidays
Do you provide the information/study materials about the lights of all three holidays or just the activities that follow?

Good Evening. I begin the unit by discussing students' personal holiday traditions. I usually have students who celebrate Christmas and/or Hanukkah. In the past I have given the students reading articles about each holiday. Now I have the students view the presentation on Scholastic.com called "Celebrate the Winter Holidays." After viewing the presentations, I then have the students complete the Venn Diagram. During our class discussion, if it isn't mentioned by the students (usually it is), I talk about how all three holidays have lights in common. The students then use their Venn diagram to write essays about how lights are an important feature of one of their chosen holidays. I hope this helps. Trista

Hi. Thank you for purchasing my product. As a power point, you could add extra information. However the background is not editable.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am entering my twenty-first year as a teacher in Westfield, New Jersey. During this time I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. This year I will be working as a Reading/Math Intervention Teacher for Grades 1 and 2. My goal has been to encourage my students to become independent and creative thinkers. I am always humbled by what my students remember and the projects that have made an impact on their learning.
