QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Hi Mrs H
Would you be able to tell me if it is possible for you to edit this bag with Aussie spelling or to let me know the font you used so i can do some cutting and pasting to make it correct. We love your things they are great.
I'm honestly not sure what the metric measurements are as I do not have a cm ruler here at home. I used a standard brown paper lunch bag, which measured 5 1/8 x 3 1/8 x 10 1/8 inches. I used a converter online, so this may not be exact, but it looks like it is about 13 x 8 x 26 cm. Hope that helps!
Hi, I tried to download the revised version of this again and I still got all the black lines and no words.
Can you please help me? I need this for my All About Me Unit. I would like begin preparation.
Thanks sooooo much!
Thank you for your purchase--I'm sorry you're having trouble. The following link should explain how to troubleshoot your download/printing issues. Typically black lines without words mean there is a problem with your version of adobe or you have an outdated print driver. If this troubleshooting tutorial does not fix the problem, please let me know:)
Any chance you could add questions (or update another page) with questions for older kids. I teach 3rd grade and those questions are great, but I liked the idea for adding favorite sport, goal for the year, what is something that you think no one knows about you, and/or what is your best quality? Let me know b/c I'd love to do it soon!

I purchased the paperbag bookbag and could not get the sheet with the questions to print, it appears blank and prints blank. All the other pages printed. I really want to use this and wrote about this problem and received an answer, but nothing works. Can someone please help solve this problem. Everything else I order prints right away.

Hi Mrs. H. I have downloaded your "All About Me Paper "Bagpack" Craftivity" and I am having trouble getting the whole thing to print. The "Thank you for your purchase and the first page came out nicely. I did update my Adobe, and I also downloaded some other activities on "teacherspayteacher" without a hitch. Do you have a suggestion on what I might be doing wrong? I do have a Macbook pro. I don't know if that could be an issue or not. Thanks. D. Riley
I'm sorry you're having trouble. I don't know much about Macbooks, but usually the problem is with an older version of Adobe. Since that doesn't seem to be your problem, you might want to check out this link which has tips for downloading tpt materials using Mac computers.
This is my sixth year teaching first grade, and I could not imagine myself anywhere else! From teaching my firsties how to read to celebrating the 100th day of School in super-hero style, I absolutely love it!
