This was a great time filler to use during the first week of school when I was having my students do assessments. There are fun ice breaker activities in the packet for students to get to know each other and the teacher, and the page about what makes a good classmate can be incorporated into discussions about expectations for behavior. My especially students loved the word search and cracking the back-to-school code. I will definitely use this again in the future.

Product Questions & Answers

On  August 20, 2013Jenni DeHart (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi,

I did try the two printing options you requested, but it still is too large for 8.5 x 11. Any other suggestions. I wanted to use this today (Wednesday)
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 20, 2013Blair Turner answered:
So sorry that didn't work. Here's a link to a blog post that has helped me MANY times with my own printing issues: http://2ndgradestuff.blogspot.com/2013/04/help-i-cant-save-or-print-my-tpt-file.html

If nothing in there is of use, I'd recommend submitting a request for help from TpT by clicking the "contact us" button at the bottom of the home page. They are whizzes with tech issues!
On  August 20, 2013Jenni DeHart (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi, I cannot get this to print correctly to an 8.5 x 11 sheet. The art is too large and will not print correctly.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 20, 2013Blair Turner answered:
On your printer screen, you should see an option that says something along the lines of "fit to page" or "scale to fit". Make sure that is clicked and you should be able to print them out correctly. Please let me know if you still have trouble after that! :)
On  August 7, 2013Donnica Farnsworth (TpT Seller) asked:
I have the same question as LCDK8. I am trying to save the PDF to my computer and it is requiring a password. I cannot duplicate and save, nor can I save a version. How do I get the owner password to be able to save this?

Thank you!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 7, 2013Blair Turner answered:
Email me at TeamTurnerBKT@gmail.com and I will send you the file via email. :)

On  July 30, 2013,  Laura K. asked:
Hi Blair,

I'm trying to save the document on my computer and it is asking me for a owner password. When I buy it, am I considered "an owner"? If so, what is the password or how do I find it?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 30, 2013Blair Turner answered:
Hmm...you shouldn't need a password to save it to your computer, just to edit it in a PDF editing program (this is to protect the work of the clip artists that is included in the document). If you want to send me an email at TeamTurnerBKT@gmail.com, I can try sending you an alternate version via email! :)

Blair,
I was going to ask you the same question as Katie. I love the packet, but I changed grade levels and will now teach 6th grade. I will follow you and see if you ever add this choice to your store. Happy school year!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 28, 2013Blair Turner answered:
Hi there! I actually do have a 6th grade version now - here is the link: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Back-To-School-Activity-Packet-6th-Grade-773142

Thanks! :)
On  July 17, 2013Katie Lynn (TpT Seller) asked:
I really would like to use this for my various grade levels (4-6). If I purchase, can you email me an editable version so I can change the headings? Thanks a million! :)
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 17, 2013Blair Turner answered:
Hi there! Unfortunately, the back to school packets are not editable. Due to the large amount of clip art that needs to be secured, turning it into an editable file that I could email would be a bigger undertaking than I have time for right now. Thanks so much for asking though! :)
