LOVE these! Last year I grouped my students into six groups and while they learned ways to cooperate I know this will be a great structured way for them to use different roles to create a great working relationship with their classmates. I plan on using these at least once a month, if not more often! I have a little bit of extra time in my schedule and was hoping to fit something in weekly! This will be a great resource for me to use with my students and I know they will have fun working together as well! Thanks so much!!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  July 9, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Good Morning,
Have you tried printing the job cards back to back? The reason I'm asking is because when I do, the front and back pages don't line up with each other. Perhaps this is happening because the margin is set to approximately 1" for both the front and the back pages. I think the front pages (7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,and 23) should be set for approximately 1" but the back pages (8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22 and 24) should be set for approximately 1 3/4" to account for the fact that the cards are not centered on the page. I hope my question makes sense and can be fixed. I'd love to not have to print both sides, glue them together, etc. before laminating. Thanks for your help.

I will work on that. Thanks for letting me know!

7/10 - I've fixed it so they print front to back. Thanks for your help! Pick out any item from my store and email me at swimmingintosecond@att.net with your choice. I'll send it to you for your help!

Hi Courtney, I am a huge fan and follower. Question...Would you be able to do a carnival theme with this packet?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 23, 2013Swimming into Second answered:
Hi! Thanks so much! It's not really themed. The only thing is the cover and the anchor chart. If you purchase it, let me know by emailing me at swimmingintosecond@att.net and letting me know your purchase date and username. I will make a carnival one for you.
