Michael Procter re: U.S. Constitution Detectives Activity Project Common Core Standards
What do you estimate as the length of time this lesson will take?
May 21, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
This will take about 2-3 forty-five minute lessons based on how in depth you want to take it. It could also go 5-6 lessons. Thanks for the question.
May 21, 2013

Cakiernan re: Geometry City Creative Project Activity Common Core Math Standards
Can this be used with middle school math? Does it meet common core standards for 7 th and 8th graders? Are ideas for adapting included in lesson plans?
May 20, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
Yes it can. It does fit into some of the standards. Thanks for the question.

theresaz20 re: Declaration of Independence Detectives Creative Activity Common Core
Doing a demo lesson on this:

The importance of the Declaration of Independence and the key concepts articulated in the Declaration, including individual rights, consent of the governed, and limited government.

Does this package pertain to all of that? I want to break them into 3 groups covering each point.
May 17, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
Thanks for the question. This activity is broad and the points you have above are covered in some of the questions. Since the file is saved in both PDF and word, you could adjust a question or two if needed. Your students will love it!
May 19, 2013

Cheri Barnes  (TpT Seller) re: The Lightning Thief Reading Novel Activities Common Core Standards
Are the common core standards listed with each lesson?
May 10, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
The standards are infused within the product.

Are the common core standards identified on the sheets so a customer knows which ones are covered by which activity?

Yes- the standards are at the top (header) of each page. Thanks for your question. Wise Guys

Do you take requests? I'd like for you to create a literature circle guide for Hold Fast by Blue Balliett. I've purchased several of your products and am a huge fan of your work. If not a lit circle guide then whatever you can come up with would be fabulous I'm sure.
April 18, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
We appreciate your comment about being a huge fan. If you give us a couple weeks, we will look into this. We are currently trying to update our current products and align them to the Common Core State Standards. But if you would like the literature circle, please give us a few days so we can read the book. Once again, thanks for the comment. Wise Guys

MsRocchioRules re: Fraction Fact Practice Game PowerPoint Activity Common Core
Mine doesnt work! :( can you help!?
April 17, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
Try this. Click on one of the questions. For example, click on a \$200 question. That will bring you to a slide with a question. Then you need to left click for the answer slide to come appear. On that same page, a little blue house should be in the bottom right corner. Click on that to bring you back to the home page. Let us know if this helps. Sorry for any confusion. Wise Guys

agordon5 re: Division Fact Practice Game PowerPoint Activity Common Core
When I push the house, it does not take me back to the Jeopardy screen. Therefore, I can't even use the game I purchased. Is there a way to fix this problem?
April 16, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
Hmm. It works fine for me. Are you using Microsoft Word?

Barbara Dusseau  (TpT Seller) re: End of School Year Math Activity: Seven Wonders Vacation (55 pages)
I teach 6th grade. Will this be appropriate...too high or too low for them?
April 14, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
I would say it would fit into 6th grade. There are activities that may be review and some that may be new and challenging to your students. I have taught 6th grade math and would be comfortable using the activities. Thanks for your question and hope it helps. Wise Guys

No we don't- but great idea! Wise Guys

Caitlin Johnston  (TpT Seller)
Hi there!
I recently purchased your iPod Touch reading project and I was wondering if you could help me. I plan on assigning this for an at-home book report project (3rd grade) where the kids will create "apps" relevant to the characters, events, etc. in the book. Could you help me guide them towards suitable apps to create or maybe send me a picture of a finished product if you know of anyone who has assigned this. That would be super helpful!
Thank you so much!

jbell1 re: End of School Year Math Activity: Seven Wonders Vacation (55 pages)
Good Afternoon. This looks like an amazing project. I was wondering which topics were covered through the project and is it suitable for seventh grade?
April 8, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
The topics covered should be in the product description. Yes, this is suitable for 7th grade. We are currently in the process of updating this product to align to the Common Core State Standards (it already aligns to the CCSS but we will be more specific). But yes, we have taught in the middle school and would be comfortable with this in the 7th grade also. Of course you can adapt it to your likings. Wise Guys

southbound re: Guided Reading Worksheets Activities, Lessons, Strategies on CD
Greetings,
I don't know if you read my first email closely enough. My apologies if I wasn't clear. I asked whether "Guided Reading 10 Day Activity Packet (5 pages)" is in "Guided Reading worksheets and activities (38 pages) for any novel!" but maybe identified differently. I purchased the latter ("Guided Reading worksheets and activities (38 pages) for any novel!") and don't want to purchase the CD if I don't have to.
Unfortunately, I am on a tight schedule and cannot wait for a CD to come in the mail. The school that I got the long-term sub position at gave me this guided reading program as I started last week and has given me nothing to work with. So I am trying to find stuff to start with on Monday. There really wasn't a program before I took this long term position, so I am working from scratch as a 1st year teacher. Any suggestions on how to go about this would be appreciated.
April 7, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
The 10-day activity is included in the CD but not this resource. There are some activities included in what you bought that you could use for any novel (Universal Novel Activities folder). What we do with guided reading is break the kids into smaller groups based on their reading levels. Then we choose novels from the classroom/school/district and assign to the different groups. We use the universal guides provided in what you purchased. We also use graphic organizers (also included in what you purchased). The Challenge University is maybe something you may want to try with your class. Otherwise, if you are really strapped for time, print off one of the graphic organizers and do a read aloud to the class until you get organized. Hope this helped you. Wise Guys
April 7, 2013

southbound re: Guided Reading Worksheets Activities, Lessons, Strategies on CD
What's the "guided reading folder" that you refer to? That's not the same as the "Guided Reading Tips and & Advice" is it? I ask because I can't seem to find what you are referring to.
Thanks!
April 7, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
Hmm.. I may have to take a closer look and update the CD cover and description. Everything is included- it just may be in separate folder now that is has been updated. Thanks for the question. Hope this answered your question. Wise Guys
April 7, 2013

taniahogan re: Common Core Literature Fiction Reading Strategy Cards
When I opened the PDF, I did not get the cards WITH the strategy description. All the cards have is the strategy name, a picture and the #of the standard. I thought from the example that each card came with a paragraph description. I would either like those cards or my money refunded. I've ordered other items from you before and it has always matched the example. Thanks in advance for the prompt response!

southbound re: Guided Reading Worksheets Activities, Lessons, Strategies on CD
What's the "Guided Reading 10 Day Activity Packet (5 pages)"
Also, is it a part of the "Guided Reading worksheets and activities (38 pages) for any novel!" (I am trying to figure out what I need to create this program, and I am having trouble figuring all that I need to make it work. I picked up the latter, but I am wondering if there's anything else I need.)
Thanks!
April 6, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
What you purchased is a great start with many activities that can be used for any novel while meeting with groups. If you visit our store, we do have a guided reading folder that may help you out. Thanks for the comment.

Kerri Gutekunst  (TpT Seller) re: Rules by Cynthia Lord Reading Comprehension Activity Guide
This is not a question...more of a complaint. After distributing some of the pages to my students, we discovered an error on several questions. Specifically, check the page for Pages 113-128. The questions on this page should be about Catherine's friend, Jason -- not her brother, David. It makes a huge difference because they have such different disabilities. Could you please correct and upload a corrected version?

suzannetruitt
I have recently purchased your Red Pyramid Unit and have constructed 3 tests using your unit. Would you be interested in purchasing these to add to your packet? I would be willing to show you some of the questions and you could make a decision based on that. Thanks for considering this. My class really benefitted from your packet. It was one of the best purchases I have made on TPT. Thanks for getting back to me.
Sincerely,
Sue Truitt suzanne.truitt@yahoo.com

Hi Sue,
We are currently updating all of our products and adding what we believe needs to be added. But using someone else's creation for our own products would not be the right thing to do. But we do appreciate your comment and your question. Wise Guys

Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
If you are talking about the Maya, Aztec, and Inca activities that you purchased today, you would need to find your own videos. We have used YouTube, Safari Montage, and United Streaming before. Safari Montage and United Streaming do require membership. Thanks for the question and hope this helps you out. If you are talking about another product, please let us know which product. Wise Guys

mmarquis23 re: Native American Myths and Misconceptions
Just wanted to say a big Thank You for posting Native Americans Myths and Misconceptions. Frankly, I have been stunned to see so many teacher-produced materials on TPT - particularly at the K-3 level - that promote the same old stereotypes and other misinformation on Native peoples and native cultures (e.g. teepees [tipis] in Thanksgiving units), inappropriate, disrespectful images (e.g. Anglo children dressed in Native regalia) and even the "Ten Little Indians" song included in one unit. I will be recommending your teaching materials to my colleagues.
March 10, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
We appreciate your comments! We try to create products that are culturally relevant and are not stereo-typical. Thanks again- Wise Guys

Thanks!
March 6, 2013
Wise Guys  (TpT Seller)
The answer is "Kodak" camera. This has now been fixed and updated. You should get an email about the new update. No, it is not based on a specific text. Thanks for the question! Wise Guys

If you have reading time in class, your students could read then. The common core standards are infused throughout as you will see and a summary of the standards is at the end of the document. Thanks!

You are my favorite seller, especially when it comes to common core aligned materials. I love your novel unit bundles that are common core aligned. Have you thought of doing one for The Cricket in Times Square? Others that I would be interested in are Poppy, and the BFG.

Not yet. We are busy aligning all of our activities with the CCSS, but will take those books into consideration!
