On  July 31, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Do you consider the majority of this packet appropriate for a Title I school of kindergarten? Trying to decide on purchase. Thanks
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 3, 2013Cara Carroll answered:
When I created this resource, I was teaching 1st grade and most of the activities were used during the spring that year. Some of the activities can definitely be adapted for Kindergarten, but the majority of the packet would be more appropriate for 1st! So sorry for the inconvenience! Blessings!
On  May 29, 2013Michelle Devenport (TpT Seller) asked:
On the Part-Part-Whole section there are too many 7's and not enough 5's. For one of the questions is says the whole is 6, and the parts are 1 & 7 when it should be 5. Just thought I'd let you know! :-)

Hi Cara,
I saw your unit on your blog and love it. Is there a way I can purchase templates for the animals: raccoon, moose, owl and frog?? They are adorable!!!!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  February 25, 2013Cara Carroll answered:
Oh, I don't have those for sale! The raccoon and moose were templates from another teacher on my team. The owl template is included in the Camping Capers packet. The frog was also a template from another team member. So sorry for the inconvenience! Blessings to you!

Cara,
I love your unit preview and I so want to purchase it but I am starting second grade in a Spanish Dual Immersion class. Could I change the text if I purchase it? If so that would make my day and night, I just created a poetry unit with camping and this would so go along with my plans.
Thanks Cara,

I have a quick question for you...I think there may be a typo on the Camping ABC order skill sheet. The page that has room for six words, sentences and picture has directions that say, pick 12 cards.... Minor, I know, but thought you might want to fix it... THANK YOU for the wonderful idea for a dreary April in Illinois, it will be three weeks of FUN! LOVE THIS CENTER! Gina Nicholls
