PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you new to teaching kindergarten or are you just in need of some new ways to start your year? This kit includes everything you need to have a successful AND fun first day with your kinders. It is jam packed with activities, as well as detailed directions and ideas to keep the day moving along smoothly. I have also given book, finger plays, and movement video suggestions to go with the Monkeying Around in Kindergarten theme that includes a coloring assessment, a simple cut and paste project, two math activities, and a simple art project to end the day with AND decorate your classroom. It even includes the headings for bulletin boards you can create with the projects the children do AND 1st day of school certificates to give the children at the end of the day. Ease your mind and let a veteran kindergarten share her classroom-tested (for years!) lesson plans with you. You will have them for years to come! And there is enough here to likely spill into the 2nd day of kindergarten, so actually 2 days could very well be planned for you! You DO NOT have to have any special books or unique materials to easily implement this back to school lesson plan. Be sure to take a peek at the preview download to get a better picture of what is included!

Product Questions & Answers

Hi, I went to download this and it downloads fine, but I can get anything to print from it? Can you help?

On  September 4, 2013Mrs Miners Monkey Business answered:
Dear Valued Customer:
Most are able to download and print my products without any problems, so, I am wondering if you have the latest version of Adobe Reader.
To print:

Let's be sure that you are opening these with the latest Adobe Reader which can be downloaded from here:

http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/

Once this application is downloaded to your computer:

1) Open the PDF file with Adobe Reader

2) Click 'print'

3) Click on 'advanced'

4) Check the 'print as image' box, and this should cover all potential issues.


Please contact tech crew at TpT if you continue to have problems. I really hope this helps because I know how frustrating it might be when you can't print something you just bought to use! Sorry for the inconvenience!
