The translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight I will be using next year is the Tolkein translation. We will be using it for High School British Lit, the students will all be in the 11th-12th grade. Thank you

The bookmarks are fantastic! Would you consider making one for Sir Gawain & The Green Knight? Thank you so much!

Word-wise Educational Products--Pegi Bevins
I would be glad to, but I will need to know the exact translation you use, the publisher, and the publication date so that the info on the bookmarks matches your book. Also, what reading level is it, and what grades is it normally taught in? Thanks for the suggestion!

I'll be glad to do them all--I love suggestions! I just finished creating 10 for a high school language arts teacher.

It may be a month before I get them all done. Is that going to work with your reading schedule? If not, send me the order you'd like them done in and give me a due date for the first one. I think you can ask another question through TPT; if not, email me at home: prbevins@minburncomm.net

Also, if you join my list of followers, you'll be notified as I create them. That's the only way TPT will allow me to let you know, unless you want me to email you at home.

Thanks again, Emily! I so appreciate it when teachers let me know that they like my products.

Hi!
I currently have 17 of your Bookmarks in my cart ready to check out. They will be such a helpful thing for my students. I would like to know if you have Bookmarks or could develop them for the following titles: Merchant of Venice; The Importance of Being Ernest; A Farewell to Arms; Antigone; The Poisonwood Bible; The Count of Monte Cristo; Sula; The Kite Runner; Atonement; and Snow Falling on Cedars

I will add you to my profile to follow you so that I will know when they are ready. Thank you so much!

Wow! Seventeen??? Wonderful! Yes, I had planned on making bookmarks for almost all of those titles and can would be glad to add the others. What is the first one you need and when? In fact, if you would like them done in any order, perhaps you could send me a numbered list. You can answer me through TPT or email me at home.

Thanks for your purchases! It's so rewarding when I know someone likes my products!

Hi, Sheila,
I'm so sorry that I don't have any more on Witch right now; however, I do plan on creating a 50-word prereading crossword and a synonym/antonym crossword based on the list of Words to Know on Bookmarks Plus. The 50-word prereading crossword will also contain those words. I also may create a quotefalls product, where student work with quotes from the book. I will do these over break (I teach at the local comm. college). Before I start the new ones, I will revise the bookmark to contain 25 Words to Know. At that point, you'll be notified by TPT and will be able to download the new one.

Thanks for your interest in my products. Check back around the first of the year or email me at home and I'll let you know when the new products are ready: prbevins@minburncomm.net

Hello. I recently downloaded one of your free products: MacBeth Quotefalls.

I was double checking the first one and noticed an entire line of letters missing and one incorrect letter in the 22 column--should be an E and there is an A

So I decided to check the 2nd one and it was fine until the last line--the world Will only has three open blocks---

Do you think you could double check all of these and send me a corrected version--or if there is a template quotefall maker, share that with me and I will attempt to fix this myself.

Thought you ought to be aware so it doesn't affect your ratings.

I really appreciate your Bookmarks Plus. I purchased them for four of the six books we are studying in our Historical Fiction book clubs. Do you have plans to create bookmarks for Shooting the Moon by Dowell and When Zachary Beaver Came to Town by Holt? If so, our book club set would be complete!

I would be glad to do bookmarks on both of the books. And, because you suggested them, you get a free copy of each! However, the only way we can do this is if you send me another question through TPT, comment on a product through TPT, or email me at home: prbevins@netins.net. We're not allowed to contact buyers.

I'll try to have them down within a week or so. Thanks for the suggestion--and do feel free to email me. I never email buyers back except to send the product. If you'd like to know when I put out new products you could "follow me." In the last 2 weeks or so, I've created bookmarks for about 15 books.

Hmm... I don't know how that could happen. I just checked, and the file for Bookmarks Plus Tuck Everlasting is the right one. Are you saying that you wanted to buy Tuck but ended up with Summer of the Monkeys? In my preview for Tuck, there's a link to the free Summer of the Monkeys bookmark. So you can download that for free and then go back to Tuck and purchase those bookmarks. Does that make sense? Please let me know if I'm misunderstanding you.

Buyer re: Bookmarks Plus: King Lear edition--A Handy Little Reading Aid!
Hi - there is a typo on the King Lear bookmark: it should read Cordelia not Crodelia!
Also what are listed as themes, I would describe as topics, not themes. I teach my students that a theme in literature is a statement that takes a position about a topic and is expressed as a complete sentence. Since the bookmark is a PDF file, I am unable to correct it and therefore cannot use it. Would you be willing to correct it?

Yes, of course, I will make the change to Cordelia's name. As far as theme goes, when I taught high school, I taught my students the same thing you teach yours--that a theme is a position statement. However, when I worked as a writer and editor for an educational publishing company, I was instructed that a theme is simply a topic or concept that the author focuses on. If you look up King Lear themes, I think you'll see that most of the sites list the themes as one- or two-word topics. I certainly understand your position. If you'd like, I could send you a Word copy and you could make any changes you like. In order to do this, you will have to email me at home; then I'll send the bookmarks as an attachment. My home email address is prbevins@netins.net.

Pegi Bevins

I have taken your 132 questions on Julius Caesar and created a massive powerpoint for use in my classroom. I would be happy to give it to you to place on your site to sell. Of course, I do not expect any money for this powerpoint. I could not have created it without your initial work.

Buyer re: The Devil's Arithmetic: 10 Quotefall Puzzles--Similes from the Book!
I bought and downloaded your Devils Arithmetic Simile activity, but in its current form, my version of Adobe Reader, nor my version of Adobe Acrobat will open it. Both claim there is an encoding error and the file may be damaged, then it suggests it may have been an attachment to an email. I would love to use this, but can't! Would you be willing to send me a new file?
Thank you, M. Eddy

Pegi,
I love the bookmark idea. I want to purchase Bookmarks Plus: Island of the Blue Dolphons, but it looks as if (from the preview) that tou have the setting as the South Pacific. I believe the story takes place off the coast of California.
Am I misreading this?
Thanks,

You are right. I should have listed the setting as "Ghalas-at, an island off the coast of California, also known as San Nicolas; 1835-1853" How's that?

Thanks so much for pointing out my error. I always give anyone who does that a free product and would love to do that for you. Please choose a product from the list below and let me know which you would like. In order to do this, though, I will need an email address to attach it to. As soon as I've sent it, I will delete your address; I won't contact you again. However, feel free to email me or reach me through TPT.

Sincerely,

Yes, I'll be glad to make bookmarks for those two titles. I'll send you a copy of each product when I'm done. However, I cannot reach you via TPT again. The only way the sellers can reach buyers is if the buyer contacts the seller on the site. Please send me an email address that I can send the bookmarks to. I probably won't get them done right away.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Buyer re: The Great Gatsby: Figurative Language Crossword--Creative!
I bought "The Great Gatsby Figurative Language" crossword and think it is great! Could you possibly provide me with a key of the TYPE of Figurative Language you intended each clue to be? I was hoping that was going to be the solutions to the puzzle. I see your note that each quote is either a simile, metaphor, hyperbole or personification. It would be REALLY helpful if you'd supply which one each clue is. I want to include that in the instructions to my students, and would really like to know what you think they are since you are the creator. Thanks!

Buyer re: A Raisin in the Sun: 10 Quotefall Puzzles--A Great Spelling Workout!
It is just that some of the quotes are not verbatim without brackets (#2) and ellipses (#1). We haven't got past the first page yet, but my students are really challenged by them and are enjoying the worksheet very much!
April 3, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Word-wise Educational Products--Pegi Bevins
I understand your concern. Students should learn that a quotation is just that--and not a "version" of the quotation. How about if I state in the instructions to students that the quotations aren't verbatim? Do you think that would be acceptable to teachers? Sometimes the quotations are just too long to expect students to solve, yet their content is so good that I hate not to use them.

Yes, the puzzles are challenging, so I always suggest that teachers provide hints as necessary. I don't normally provide the hints because then they're permanent and some teachers don't like that.

Thanks so much for being willing to have this dialogue. Sometimes I get comments/complaints, and when I send a message back asking for further feedback, the buyer never gets back to me, so I'm not always sure how to proceed as far as improving the product. I would like to send you a free product for your trouble. I offer a synonym/antonym vocab crossword on "Raisin," but I also have products on 29 high school-level books/plays. If you'd like to peruse, go to my store:

Oh, my gosh--that was an oversight on my part! Thanks so much for letting me know. I'll edit that product right away. So, as a buyer, you should get notification and be able to download the new version for free.

To show my appreciation, I'd like to send you the Walk Two Moons (I love that book--cried through the last chapters) edition of my Bookmarks Plus product. Please contact me at my home email--prbevins@netins.net--and I promise I will never bug you to buy my products. I will simply send the bookmarks as an attachment. I would do it through TPT, but as a seller, that isn't possible.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Five years as a high school language arts teacher. Six years as a composition instructor at the community college level. Nineteen years of experience as a writer and editor of products for language arts products (K-12) for educational publishing companies across the country.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Not all learning needs to be fun, but I am a firm believer in the value of word puzzles and games in the classroom when appropriate. Games can challenge students' social and cooperative skills; puzzles can challenge their knowledge of spelling, vocabulary, and almost all other language skills--and the best thing is, students are hardly aware that it's happening!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Arts, Education, Iowa State University, 1988

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I began creating ThemeQuotes games when I taught high school literature. I wanted something to end a book unit that was fun for students and reinforced the themes of the book. Having always been a lover of thought-provoking quotations (I had hundreds of them plastered on the walls of my classroom), I came up with the idea of having students solve theme-related quotations (ThemeQuotes) hangman-style. That worked fine, but I felt it needed something more. That's when I decided to create Trivial Pursuit-style questions that students would answer in teams and then, if they got the answer right, suggest letters for the ThemeQuote puzzle. The first team to solve the puzzle won the round. My students loved it, and I went on to create 23 editions for my own line of products after leaving teaching. Fun with Great Works seemed like a natural extension of that product. Again, the product is used to "top off" a book unit. The puzzles are fun but also challenging to students in many ways. I also started creating Bookmarks Plus while teaching because I wanted students to have a quick reference to the basic elements of the book and the vocabulary words I would later test them on. I am also the author of two published books aimed at encouraging "normal" kids to accept kids with disabilities.
