Hello

I bought your Rockin Hounds unit and when I view it, there are some blurry block blotches throughout the pages. Are you able to email your version of this document or do you know how to solve this problem. I downloaded it using a mac. Thank you so much. Larissa (lariss01@hotmail.com)

On  September 14, 2013Reagan Tunstall answered:
Hello!
None of your packets should have black lines or boxes in them. This usually means you need an update with your adobe reader, or you are viewing it without using adobe reader. At the top of your purchases page, you will find directions on how to fix this problem.

Hi Reagan, I purchased the unit and love it! I noticed on the color sorting graph that there is no purple but there is a purple on the sorting sheet. Is it possible for you to go in and add purple to the graph and send it to me. My email is hosterhaus@usd458.org

On  April 20, 2012Reagan Tunstall answered:
I made my own non fiction book (included) and then I went to our library and found a couple rock books, that are general information. They are non fiction too. There wasn't much on my first grader's level, so that is why I made my own and included it in the unit. I wanted to be sure the students had the information that I needed for the standards.
