Product Questions & Answers

On  September 22, 2013Lori Mor (TpT Seller) asked:
Is this in a bundle for the whole school year?
Your products are awesome not good for my budget though!
Also, how do you keep track of what the children have completed and not completed?
Do you use it as whole class or let them decide?
I am also liking this as early finisher work.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 22, 2013Michelle Oakes answered:
At the beginning of the school year, I put one card per day on the overhead and have everyone do the same thing. Midyear I begin to let them choose. Every so many days, I check to see that they are completing the activities. Some kids won't finish a whole activity in one day, because they may enter the room at the last minute. That is why I love it, because they can continue the activity the next day. A lot of people do use it as fast finishers though. :) The bundle has a full school year. The Aug. and Sept. is of course just for those months.

I have downloaded your August/September and October/November packs however I am having an issue with printing. I can print up to page 16 and then it just starts spinning and never finishes spooling. I have also gotten a message that says the file is corrupt?! Any suggestions on how to fix this issue. I would really like to use this as one of my Daily 5 rotations!

On  July 7, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Michelle - I'm trying to prepare for August and I purchased all of your morning menu products. They look like such a great way to start the day - with choice! Anyway, in copying the pages, do you make table sets of the menu items? Do you rotate a certain number of items from table to table? I'm just wondering if I need to copy multiple sets of each morning menu activity. Any input would help! Thanks for taking the time to answer. I LOVE this product!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 7, 2013Michelle Oakes answered:
I made for copies and the hole punched them and put them in mini binders that you can get at target. Then your kiddos could easily take out the card they want to work on. If your kids this year are lower or less independent you can just do one card a day on the overhead. That's what I did at the beginning of the year. Hope that helps.
On  June 12, 2013Linda Akers (TpT Seller) asked:
Really like your morning menu! Do you list the breakfast books in the packet for download?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 21, 2013Michelle Oakes answered:
Linda- I don't only because I usually look at who is at the table and put appropriate leveled reader's for them. Do you have leveled books. If not, Wilbooks is a great site to get leveled books at a great price.

Love this product and I can see lots of possibilities for my kiddos! I haven't met this year's first grade but last year I had children who could not read and those who were reading at grade 3 level. My question is.... Could you include an editable page? I would like the flexibility to differentiate but I would like to keep the same motif; in other words... the same colored borders but blank in the middle. Thanks, Fran

On  September 9, 2012Michelle Oakes answered:
I have considered it but people are having such a hard time with editing that I'm spending all of my time answering questions about editing and helping with editing. I then don't have time to make new products. If you'd like editable cards you can email me and I'll try to make you some. :) fabulousinfirst@gmail.com

The packet includes a cover and pages that you can copies of to make it into a booklet. You could just use a regular notebook though.
