  1. Can you email me a copy of the QAD questions that isn’t read only so that I can paste the questions and graphics into the ppts I use to teach with? I need the graphics and it is easier to copy them off of the document you created than to search for them.

    This site is great-thanks for your hard work!!

  2. It is. I uploaded the wrong pacing guide, thank you for noticing. I’ve fixed it now and the 08-09 pacing guide is up there. Sorry!

  3. Congratulations on receiving the grant. I’d be intereseted in seeing your proposal–so I would know how to do one in the future.

  4. Thank you! If you let me know a good time for you, I don’t mind bringing it by and showing you! Just shoot me an e-mail.

  5. I am unsure of the answer for a QAD question for this week.

    this is what I think please let me know if this is the correct answer:

    What are three common links to all of Virginia major rivers?

    a. The rivers provided a pathway of exploration and settlement.

    b. The river provided a source of transportation.

    c. The rivers provided a source of food.

  6. You have a wonderful blog!!! How do I show the power points on this blog to the class? Do I have to show them from your screen or can I save them somehow?

    Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. Thanks so much for the Vocab Review for VS7! I love to use those for reteaching and review!

    Thanks again!

  8. Hello! I am a 4th grade teacher in Salem, VA. I was wondering if the graphics on your foldables were copywrited, or if I might be able to use some? I am planning to do a project with VA History using PhotoStory where the students give a summary of the bullets for VS2-VS7 using pictures. They will also be able to record their voices to describe the pictures. I’m having trouble finding the maps and some graphics. Please let me know if I am able to use some of the graphics you have published here. I’ll be happy to provide a link to the project so you can see how the graphics are used. Thank you!

  9. Thanks for all the hard work you do. I use this site at least three or more times a week!

  10. I appreciate all the materials that are available on the blog. I use ths website many times during the week.

  11. WOW!! Wonderful Webiste with lots of resources. I greatly appreciate all your work in gathering this information. Do you have a review card for VS.9? If so, I’d love to use it for SOL review.

  12. Meredith ~ I do not have one made yet, please check back in about a week, I’ll have time to get it together by then!!

  13. Lisa,

    Is there a review card for VS.9? That’s the only one I couldn’t find. Again, thanks for all of your help! This website is EXTREMELY useful!!!!

  14. Thanks for the updated material for VS.9 and VS.10! My kids also love the “I Have Who Has” games. Having a game for each SOL is especially helpful. Do you have “I Have Who Has” games for VS.5, VS.6, VS.7, VS.8, VS.9, and VS.10? Again, thanks for all your hard work!

  15. Meredith ~ unfortunately, I started and never got back to finishing up the curriculum. I don’t have time to finish it now, but I will work on it after we SOL test in May, check back in the summer!

  16. Hi Chris~

    Thanks for sharing your site! I hope all of our teachers in Portsmouth check it out. Thanks again!

  17. Hi Lisa,

    Unfortunately I just found your site this week, but can’t wait to start incorporating into my curriculum next year! Thanks for all of your work and for sharing your ideas and resources, UNBELIEVABLE!!!

  18. Hi Beth,

    Glad you found us, and hopefully you’ll find something useful! Thanks!

  19. Several weeks ago, Lani Anderson and I attended the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation Summer Teacher Institute, and it was amazing!!! We were treated like royalty, and everything we needed was at our fingertips. We attended lectures on the Virginia Indians, Indentured Servitute, Slavery, and others. We went on tours of both the Jamestown and Yorktown historical sites and museums. The highlight of the week for me was becoming an actual costumed interpreter on site at the Jamestown Settlement. This was one of those teacher changing/life changing experiences and I would highly recommend it to ANY teacher of social studies. The institute for next year has already been funded, so look for the application information! The only money I spent from my pocket was the money I spent in the gift shop, and there was even a discount for that!!

  20. That’s great Laura! I’m glad you had a good time, I can’t wait to hear more about it!

  21. Thank you for making my job a lot easier this year. Lisa. I have been given the opportunity to teach Virginia Studies again and I have found this web site to be most helpful.
    Thanks also go out to Sarah for supplying me with power points to help with teaching. You guys are the greatest! Now, I need to know if there is a time line of events for Virginia Studies. If so, where can I find it?

  22. Lisa, Your resources are amazing! Will you be posting anymore resources for VS.5-9?

  23. Thanks Ashley. Sarah is actually working on the resources for Virginia Studies, so as things are revised we’ll be posting them. Thanks!

  24. Hi Chris,

    I did receive them, thanks. I had to have help coverting them though, since we have the Promethean boards!

  25. Hi Maris,

    Thank you! We’re slowly working on revisions, but Sarah and I are both out and about pretty much all the time now, so I’m not sure when we’ll be able to finish revisions and get them posted.

  26. LOVE these games. Finished laminating them and plan to review with them for the next few weeks. Can’t wait for the rest of the I Have, Who Has… and Question Answer Cards.
