The unit is great! I love the color and black and white book versions of the song. I was a little disappointed by the glyph. I thought the pieces would all be there. I don't have an aide or helper to do all of the other pieces I would need for the kids to have. I love the glyph, I just thought it would be ready to use.
On  December 15, 2013Deanna Jump answered:
Thanks so much for the feedback. It is actually much easier to prepare when you use the paper cutter to cut the pieces and then teach the kids how to cut them. Not only is the prep much easier, the results are much cuter because they are unique rather than cookie cutter. I included mostly patterns but there are a few pieces that will require the students to cut shapes.
I promise if you try it you will love the results!

Hi! I am getting this unit ready to use in a few weeks and I don't quite understand the more/less wheel to spin at the end of the game. The students play the site word game and whoever has more cards at the end is the winner but then they spin more/less? What is that for?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 24, 2013Deanna Jump answered:
The More/Less wheel is used at the END of the game. The students count their cards and then spin the spinner to determine who is the winner. This way they don't know who the winner is until the very end and they don't get upset when their friend has more cards early on.

Deanna,

I have the same question as the one below - I have looked through the unit a couple of times for the smoke stack, wheels, and yellow guard. I can make them myself, but I was just curious if you have them. I am loving your units - I have most of them - and the kids love the activities! Thanks for your time!

Yikes! so sorry about that. :) Note to self: DO NOT watch Mike and Molly while working! :) Adding it right now. You can go to your My Purchases folder and redownload it. I added it to the last page so that it would be easy to find.

Deanna,
I am sure they are there and I don't realize it, but where are the patterns for the train - wheels, yellow guard and smoke stack?? I bought the unit specifically for that. :) I am not complaining! You are so amazing! I just don't see them in the updated packer. I can make my own if you give me a clue about dimensions? We are doing Polar Express on Thurday and my Firsties will love the games you added. Thanks for all your wonderful work!
