Product Questions & Answers

On  December 14, 2013Alexis Burns (TpT Seller) asked:
Just a Thought: On the fill-in pages, could their be a map of the world for students to color in the country for each one? I'd love to have this for my kiddos because it's part of our SOL's here in VA. (And it's how we link it to Holidays Around the World..a stretch I know.) Let me know:)

On  June 4, 2013Megan McDevitt (TpT Seller) asked:
Does the download include anything other than the pages for students to fill in and create their book? Like any information for teachers to use to help teach the students about the holidays? Or a list of resources to use along with your book pages? I'd like to purchase it, but I don't know enough about these holidays to teach to my students, and am afraid I won't be able to find adequate resources to help them learn and fill in the pages provided.

I was wondering if either you could give me the version that I can edit or if you could edit the Mexico page to include the holiday name - Las Posadas. I'm teaching the kids about the holiday this week and it would be great if the holiday name could be on the page. I'm willing to do it, if you send me an editable version, that way you don't have to.

HI Rachelle,

I was thinking about purchasing this unit, but have a couple of questions first. I saw one question below regarding Ramadan and Kwanza. Do you think you'll be able to update it for the Cyber Monday Sale? I'd like to purchase it, but really need those two holidays as well.

Also, could you upload or send a preview of an excerpt for the reading passages. I'd like to see if it would be at an appropriate level for the 3rd graders. I just know in the past, I have downloaded items that say they will work for a 1-3 grade span, but ends up being too easy for my kids.

Thanks for your help!

Hi there! I'm sorry, but I won't be adding any countries to this packet. If anything, I'll be making a whole separate one because this one is already very large. But, I can't make any promises. Sorry! I'm not sure what reading passages you are talking about? Are you referring to the book that the students fill in? There is an example of that in the thumbnail. I hope this helps!

Hi Rachel,
I love this unit and the amount of work you put into it. What I am unclear on is if there is a separate Around the World Book that I need in order to complete this unit. Am I missing something? I bought the unit, but I read that the students each have their own book and I am a bit confused. Thank you.

Hi there! Thank you for your suggestions! Right now, I don't have a minute to spare, so I'm unable to add those. I will look into it more as December nears us. Thank you!

I have a incorporated your CAtW unit with one we have been using at our school. I want to create some pages for countries you did not have in your unit. What text font did you use?

Try to download the most updated version of ADOBE and making sure to set it as your previewer for PDF. Let me know if that works!

I bought your HAtW unit and love it! I taught the Netherlands yesterday and was not familiar with Black Pete so I looked at http://www.whychristmas.com/cultures/holland.shtml
and
http://holidays.kaboose.com/christmas/traditions/st-nicholas/xmas-around-stnicholas.html
I found that he was sometimes seen as a pirate and my kids loved it! They were so excited and went home and told there parents about mostly Black Pete - not the wooden shoes we made or the candy that was left in our shoes by SinterKleese:) Unfortunately, today I got an email from one of my parents who did a bit more research on Black Pete and found out some disturbing info that you might like to know. Black Pete was Santa's slave:( http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/0,1518,594674,00.html
Just thought you might like to know - I threw out the page and am making a revision and apologized profusely to my parent for my lack of knowing.
It did seem really fun - but did not turn out that way:(
Thanks - Love the packet and your activities.

Thank you! After reading this, I did some research. It is a contraversial topic, but it is apart of Holland's holiday history. I have now revised my unit to include this information so that teachers are aware of this controversy. I did not feel it was necessary to delete this part of the unit, but to include an informational page. Thank you so much.

I just purchased this last night and love it! However, it is only printing pages 1-10. I have tried printing one page at a time, switching the pages etc. and everytime it prints a message:
PCL XL error
Subsystem: TEXT
Error: Insufficient Memory
Operator: TExt
Position: 183.

Any ideas on why it isn't printing in full?

Thank you!

Hi there! I'm not sure why it isn't printing! I printed it just fine on my printer. Do you have the most updated version of ADOBE? Try download that at adobe.com, set it as your default PDF viewer. If you are still having problems, contact TpT. Although it could be just a problem with your computer/printer. Hope this helps! :)

This question may be duplicate?? How come the 10% off code that was offered through email (valid 11/27-28) says expired when entered?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 27, 2011Rachelle Smith  answered:
I think the 10% off code is for Cyber Monday only. Tomorrow I'll be offering 20% off of all of my products and you can also enter the code CMS28 at checkout for an extra 10% off! :)

Hi! Thank you for this unit! I am doing something similar and want to learn about countries that represent the students in my class if I can. Is there anyway that you could send me a poster about India (Dawali)? and Sweden (St.Lucia Day). I just need the colorful page with the county name. If it isn't too much trouble, I would really appreciate it! Thank you again!
