I recently purchased the Rules of Divisibility Posters and Review Activities. After uploading, however, I noticed a couple of typos on the b/w rules of divisibility poster, on page 20. The first and third column headers have one letter that wraps down to the next line. I am wondering if you could reformat them so the whole word is on one line.

I really excited to share this with my students! Thanks so much!

I purchased the classroom rules explicit instruction about 1 1/2 years ago. I have a parent that would like daily information on their students behavior. I took a page to the meeting, that I thought was from your powerpoint, to show the parent. Now I can't find the paper I took nor can I find anything on the computer. It was four days on a page and the student marked their areas to improve.

Does it include the roles of Predictor and Questioner (as per reciprocal reading?)

Unfortunately only the questioner is addressed. I have tried many versions and decided to focus on these five roles as they seemed to result in the deepest conversations...however, i could certainly add the predictor role to the rubric and slides int he future. it would take me a few days. :0)

Hey,
Last year I downloaded your Affix Word Wall with the 18 & 16 suffixes and prefixes, is this not being offered anymore? I had printed some of them out and would like to finish the collection to use this year.
Thanks,
Brittany

Hello,
Do you have a complete list of the affixes/root words included in this pack? Thank you!

If you go to the link below there is another link titled word play grid. All of the affixes and roots in this grid are a part of the word wall. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Intermediate-Word-Play-Getting-Started-BUNDLE-772137

Thanks for inquiry! :0)

Hi! I bought your Intro to Lit Circles and I really like it. I'm wondering if you have any kind of printables as far as what the students use to record to get ready for/during the actual talk?

Thanks!

i always had students responding in their journals because my school had a zero copy limit lol.....so we learned how to do most everything without copies! Basically students mimic what is on the big posters in their journal. Sorry not more helpful but maybe that is something I can explore adding in the next few weeks after things calm down! You can always email me at my regular email earleyheather@yahoo.com. :0) Heather

There is a link here where you can get the most updated version. From what I have read this is the most common issue. I just double-checked the file and it is working fine on my end and have also sold several that have downloaded w/o issue today. if d/l update doesn't work, create a help ticket and TPT will further troubleshoot with you. I Hope youcan get it though! I know how frustrating tech. issues are! Please drop me a note when you get it and what the resolution was.

Hi! I just purchased the Classroom Rules unit, and I look forward to using it next month when school starts. When looking over the file, I noticed that the student booklets still have 2012-13 on the front cover. Would you please update the file for this school year? Thanks!

Earlier in the summer I had began printing your "Affix Word Wall" and my printer ran out of ink in the middle of printing it. So I saved it under my wishlist. I noticed it wasn't there anymore and have searched your products and can't seem to find it. Is there anyway you can help find it? :)

I actually just uploaded a new product that "competes" with it but it is paid so I took that one off. Send me your email and I will send you the file! :)) Sorry about that!

I do but I have been working to improve and add to the word units and let the blog go a bit! I am working on a huge PowerPoint to support the explicit instruction of affixes and that has got me preoccupied! Let me know if there is anything specific i can answer or help with. :0) The blog is www. wildaboutwords.blogspot.com

Buyer re: Verdi: Intermediate Vocabulary Study (Explicit Instruction
Hello,
I am absolutely loving all of your vocabulary and vocabulary/book units. Is there a specific order you start the word units with? Is there a specific book you start with? Do you start at the beginning to get the kids used to the format?
Thanks!

For the word studies, there is no particular order. They are all independent of one another and quite repetitive with a few new activities interspersed throughout. Last year, I did Stellaluna first as we introduced theme and then Verdi as we introduced character analysis. I used Crickwing for various text structures but it varies year to year based on what the kids need. I have several others I have used but not yet "TPT'd" for quality assurance so keep your eyes peeled.

For the weekly word plays, I do have a loose order I follow. However, I have not yet completed all of the lists and have 20+ lists to further develop. I will then upload a recommended order. However, they are all also independent of one another and can be introduced based on student need or your school district's recommended affix/root instruction.

So glad you are enjoying them! I know my kids always look forward to a new unit...also- if you have a favorite book you would like a unit developed for, let me know and I can work towards developing it! My personal email is earleyheather@yahoo.com. Thanks again...you made my day!

I just updated and added a reduced price bundle for the first five word study units if you are interested:
