PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Happy November, Teacher Friends!

November is such a great month to be a teacher - there is a *ton* of fun content to teach and we get an extended break for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Yay! Hopefully this activity pack will supplement your current curriculum nicely, or add to the thematic units you already teach in your room.

Enjoy!

~ Abby 

On  November 19, 2013,  Donna N. asked:
Hello! Last night I purchased your Thanksgiving packet and I'm so eager to use it. However, it seems that when I open the packet after the first page I have black boxes and things don't look right. Can you point me in the direction of being able to open these files successfully? I've downloaded a new version of Adobe Acrobat Reader and the pages are still not displaying properly.

Thank you for your time!
Donna

On  December 2, 2013Babbling Abby answered:
This is a common issue, usually because you are printing from "preview" instead of from Adobe Reader. Make sure you have the latest Adobe Reader download, too.

If that doesn't work, I would google your specific printer/computer since these issues are usually specific to your printer/computer and not file-related. It could be that you don't have enough memory on your computer.

Another option is to hit Print- then click ADVANCED- Next click PRINT AS IMAGE- then click print.
I'm sorry this is a delayed response! Our daughter is in the NICU and life is crazy!!!! Here's my go-to answer:

Someone else suggested this: try downloading to google drive and save in format you need.

If all else fails, open a ticket on TpT. Unfortunately, I'm not a printer guru and this is my exhaustive list of fix-its :P
On  November 8, 2012Miss Britnee (TpT Seller) asked:
Abby - I am a huge fan of yours :) on average, how long does it take you to make a packet like your Valentine Sweetheart Snatcher or your Thanksgiving packet? I aspire to do similar things but I feel like it would take me weeks to make all of the pages!

You are wonderful and inspiring!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 9, 2012Babbling Abby answered:
Thanks, Britnee! I would say it takes me anywhere from 20-40 hours to complete a pack. That includes making the pages, the preview, editing, blogging/facebooking about it, and finally uploading it to TpT :)

On  March 14, 2012,  Veronica D. asked:
I was looking at your blog and came across your thanksgiving extravaganza. LOVE IT! I was wondering if the November Activity pack includes everything you did on your blog (baby jar butter, thanksgiving dinner place-mats, toilet paper turkeys and costume activity) I would so love to use all of those activities they are just wonderful!! :)

On  March 14, 2012Babbling Abby answered:
No, it doesn't :( I think I got most of those activities from Cara Carroll of www.thefirstgradeparade.blogspot.com!
On  November 16, 2011Jee Jee's Store (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Abby,
I was looking at your unit and it looks very cute. I see there are a couple food related activities listed. I'm just wondering how many non-food activities are included before I purchase this. Thanks
Jen

On  November 16, 2011Babbling Abby answered:
Hi, Jen! Check out the product description and the downloadable preview. I think there are 3 food-related activities included. Thanks so much for looking :)
On  November 5, 2011Stuart Skopit (TpT Seller) asked:
Hello. I am also an elementary school teacher and a seller on this site. I was wondering how each of your listed items look so colorful and professional. I feel like I have listed some terrific activities on this website, but I was wondering how to make it look so colorful and almost as if it was published like yours.
