On  January 17, 2013,  Dorothy S. asked:
I love the unit on Bear Snores On but I am wondering if there is any way you can change the font on the vocabulary words? My supervisor is very picky about readability of print fonts and it woud be so wonderful if you could make these word cards and a font that is more readable. It's really confusing for the first graders if letters are mixed in the words...some are capitals and others aren't.

On  January 19, 2013Jen Ross - Teacher by the Beach answered:
I am uploading the revised version now, with the new font :) Thank you for letting me know!
