I'm so happy I found this packet! It has everything I was looking for. Each month I just copy what I need and add it to the kids' folders. It is easy to show growth using this portfolio and the parents love that all of this is done for them! Well worth every penny!

Yes. Just one Lisense:) There are no editable boxes on any of the pages:( Sorry!

Let me know if you have any other questions!

On  October 22, 2012Bonjour DuBois (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Katie, I understand that you need to mark your work but does it have to be so big and in the way? How about your initials under the border? I am very disappointed. Your last name is so close to 'menses'. I really don't want it on my student's memory book. This was not a cheap purchase and with only one color page, I hate it that I can't use it. Kelly
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 28, 2012Katie Mense answered:
Wow. I'm sorry you don't like my last name. I will put it in smaller font for you. Please email me at littlekinderwarriors@hotmail.com and I will send you a different version of the cover.
On  October 20, 2012Bonjour DuBois (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi, I purchased this product and I like it very much. One thing I am hoping you can change: On the cover sheet that is in color, you signed your name at the bottom with the year 2011.
This shows on each of my student's covers. I can not use it. It is the only color sheet in the whole packet. Can you remove your name and year from the part that is visible so I can use this please? Thanks so much!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 21, 2012Katie Mense answered:
My name and date are on every page. It is to show that I created this product and the date that it was created. If you look at the bottom of any worksheet, paper or teacher created product-you will find their name/copyright. It is to give credit to the person that made the product.
Thanks so much! I'm glad that you are happy with the rest of the product. It is has definitely been my biggest project and sooo many hours of work went into this one:)
On  September 17, 2012Angela Davis (TpT Seller) asked:
I've updated my adobe and it's still blurry on several of the pages; is there another format that you can send me? or any other suggestions to get it clear? I am running on a macbook pro I have all the microsoft programs as well as mac programs and adobe.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 18, 2012Katie Mense answered:
I guess we could try PNG format. Email me at littlekinderwarriors@hotmail.com and I'll send you a folder with each PNG in it. Otherwise, you may just have to try it from a different computer.

Hi Katie!
First off I just want to say that I LOVE this book! I had trouble printing it from ADOBE and had to print it in Preview which I think may have caused many of the images to print kind of fuzzy! Any suggestions? When I tried to print in Adobe I got an error message saying there were not pages selected to print.
I have a favor to ask... our school year starts in September (I teach in NY) and I love the August poem about self portraits, any way I can get that with September instead of August? I have a few other things I'd love to know if they were possible - I don't want to be a pest so let me know if you think you'd be able to help me out or not!
Thanks!! Steph

On  June 14, 2012Katie Mense answered:
Hello there!!! Sorry that you are having problems printing the packet! I'm copying and pasting these directions from my friend Kim Adsit. From what you are describing-this is your problem:
1. It sounds like you are either opening with an old version of Adobe Reader or if you have a Mac, you may be opening it with a Mac program called "Preview" and not even know it.
Preview has documented problems opening modern Adobe files. If you have a Mac, try opening Adobe Reader first (rather than just double clicking on the file), then open the file within
Adobe Reader.
You may also choose to set the default reader to Adobe Reader by following the instructions below.

2. If you are still having opening and you know you are using Adobe, look to see if you have a newer version. You can check the version by clicking Help then About from within reader. If you have a version earlier than 5.0 or 6.0, you should update your reader. Please let us know if either of these actions solves the problem.
I am in the process of making lots of changes to the portfolio...so, shoot me an email and I'll try to get your requests into the new download!;) I can easily make 2 poem options:) I'm sure you're not the only one who needs this fixed:)

Thankyou for you excellent resource. In Australia we have our months different to yours in terms of the school year. We start in January and complete the year in December. We also have a few different spelling of words like mom(mom) color (colour).I could white them out or could I get a british English version

Hello!
I purchased your Kindergarten Portfolio packet and many of the boarders/clip art are cut off. I have tried to print on 2 different printers. I am kind of disappointed. Perhaps it's on my end. Any advise??? Thank you!

Hmmmm....I'm not sure why this is happening. I checked the download and all the graphics seem to line up correctly. Let's try this....
~Go to: file/print
~Click on "properties"
~Click on "Features"
Your default is probably set on "print actual size"~Select "scale to paper size" instead.
then try printing. Does that work?? We'll start there-if it doesn't work, let me know and we'll figure it out:)

Hi Michelle!
Thanks so much for your interest in my products! The portfolio packet has 85 pages. Some of those pages are optional and their are choices on some of the pages....so it just really depends what you choose to add to your class portfolios.

Hi, could you by chance make this a first grade portfolio and maybe include some extra blank pages?

I could very easily make a 1st grade portfolio if you would just like me to change the headings. What do you mean by "blank pages"? The signature pages? Or do you have something else in mind?

Is there anyway you can make this for preschool? I teach special education preschool and make memory books every year. I love your art work and would like to have this for preschool. Any way possible?
Thanks,

I have made a preschool version;) I tried to post it just now, but it says "posting has been postponed until Tuesday." Hopefully I'll have it up for you some time tomorrow:) Thanks for your interest in my portfolio!
