I purchased your SAT middle school vocabulary packet. I love the packet it has been perfect for what my students need.
I noticed today that in lesson 3 there are two typos in the assessment portion and the key has one error.
I proud that it was my students that caught the errors first. That means they knew the right answers.

Hello, I just purchased the Animal Farm Barn Door Project. Do you have a picture of what the final project should look like? I (like some of my students) like a visual aide. It will help me help them put it together. I look forward to using your product. I like it because it's a different form of assessing. :)

My school had the VHS version but there are a few on YouTube I found that are interesting versions if you need, as well as a link to the movie available on Amazon. I imagine if your school doesn't have it, the movie might be difficult to obtain. You might also check your local library.

Am I mistaken, but, on the multiplication inequalities, should the inequality sign be changed since you are dividing by a negative number?

Buyer re: Charlotte's Web Unit, Test, Study Guide, Trivia Review PowerPoint
Hello,
I purchased your Charlotte's Web unit that included a PowerPoint game. Sadly as the children were playing, we discovered quite a few errors. Some of their selections revealed prompts on Napoleon and Snowball (???). Some of the vocabulary selections did not offer a vocabulary word to define but instead it asked a comprehension question. I would like to request that the errors are corrected and then resent to me. I know the kids will love it next year.

I apologize for the errors. It looks like I zipped the unfinished PowerPoint so I have fixed it and uploaded it again. There are a few chapters that are combined because they were shorter and the vocabulary in one of the chapters was more difficult than in another.

The questions following each chapter are multiple choice and short answer so they could be used as quizzes. Some of the questions near the end start to cover several chapters at a time because they are shorter chapters. There is also a cumulative test, as well as many activities and projects. The document itself is 55 pages long so there are a lot of resources. I think you will like it.

I went through every slide and could not find a link that wasn't working. Each time the answer came up when I pressed the play button. To get back to the main board I clicked on the car graphic and those worked too. Can you give me an example of a question that isn't working and then I can go back, try it again, and see what's happening with it? Then I can fix anything that's off or try and figure out what's causing the error and resend it to you to download again. Thanks so much, I appreciate the purchase and we will figure it out.

Thank you for the purchase and yes, I have the students take a fairy tale and make changes to characters, setting, and/or events. Usually I read a couple of well-known fairy tales the first few days of the unit. I'd estimate it would take approximately two and a half weeks including a day for peer feedback, maybe a little less. I especially like to read the book The Stinky Cheese Man and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by John Scieszka. They are fun to read.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Karen: 7-8th grade English, 9-12 College-Credit English Courses Stephanie: 4-8th grade English, Math, and Honors Math

MY TEACHING STYLE

We feel that strong vocabulary is a necessity in every content area. According to Marzano, a leading educator and researcher, learning vocabulary is most effective when the word or concept is connected to a symbol, definition, and repeated exposure, as well as put into context. We try and fulfill all of these strategies in our vocabulary units.
