PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Perfect as we head back to school! This editable kit includes everything you need to implement M.O.N.K.E.Y. Books in your classroom. A MONKEY Book is a 3 ring binder that you send home with your students EVERY day. It provides a no-excuse method of keeping everyone informed and on top of what is going on at school (including you, parents and students alike). This kit includes EVERYTHING you need to start this in your classroom, from an explanation to parents to all of the labels you need to label the books. As an added bonus, the kit includes an editable academic year calendar (monkey themed, of course!). Implementing this system in my classroom was the best thing I ever did. It is so worth the extra time and effort it takes to put them together and also instills responsibility within the students.You must have Microsoft Powerpoint on your computer to be able to utilize the editable function on this document. If you are still interested in having this without the edit function, you may still purchase it and let me know you want the PDF version.

I was disappointed in the "editable". I wanted to be able to take your letter about the Monkey binder and tweak it. I also wanted to be able to edit other parts of the book and it isn't really editable, it's more that you can add information in text boxes. The labels were also blurry, like they were a picture stretched too far. Some of the words are readable on the labels. I have bought from you before and was pleased with your other products, but really needed an editable product so I didn't have to make my own from scratch. :(

All you have to do to edit is insert text boxes where you want to put your own words. If you want to change my words, you would need to format the text box to be filled with white and no outline. I can't really send my original for various reasons. Hopefully these tips help. Krissy Miner

I can send you my original if you would like, that may help.

First I must say I love following your blog and purchasing your stuff!! I recently bought the other MONKEY communication binder you have for sale, but I love the color choices on the new binder kit. Do I have to purchase it again even though it is basically the same thing? I hope not. As any teacher, I have spent a lot of money already preparing for my first year in kindergarten. : )
