On  October 27, 2013Teaching With Style answered:
I'm so glad to hear! My school does not have color printing options, so teachers have to print color at home or use black and white. I like to include blacklines in my units in case any teachers are like me and often print on colored cardstock instead of with color ink :)

Product Questions & Answers

On  January 5, 2014Teachers Rock (TpT Seller) asked:
Love this packet! I was wondering if it would be possible for you to change the wording on the graphs about tasting pumpkin seeds (pages 60,61,69,70)? Please consider changing the titles "Did you like it?" to "Will you like a pumpkin seed?"

***Thanks so much! I really appreciate your time!***
