I would love to be able to use this product since my students will benefit from this reinforcement, but unfortunately, after download the text portions are not legible & show up as only a black line. :(
Is it possible for you to email me what it's supposed to say on each page? And I can cut & paste them in.
On  November 6, 2013Sarah Sebesta answered:
For some reason that is happening occasionally, especially on Macs and I don't really know why! Is there a Dell or HP you can download on? And what's your email address? I can email you a copy and see if that works (sometimes it does). I don't want you to have to go through the trouble of cutting and pasting! I'm so sorry for the inconvenience!

This really helped my kiddies to better understand. On the page where all of the housing is together, I think that the housing should be in the reverse order, so that the ones house is actually in the ones place etc. Some of my kids were confused by that.
