Product Questions & Answers

On  August 15, 2013PerfettoWritingRoom (TpT Seller) asked:
Deanna, I kow this is silly, but do you make the pictures of the smiley-faced children or get them from somewhere? I am just starting out, and have good contennt for high school writing teachers, but no bites. My cover pages are horrible, and so are my thumbnails, as I have no idea how to put "all of the pages" onto the thumbnail.

I know you are busy and successful, and no one gets successful alone. Can you advise me on how to add cartoon figures, or apply images of my pages to the thumbnails?

Any advice would be most appreciated.

Hi Gina, I purchase almost all of my clipart from right here on TPT. I create my units in PPT and then save the unit as PDF. I also save all of the slides as jpeg images so that I can use them in another powerpoint to make the thumbnail images. I arrange them all on the powerpoint slides and then save those slides as jpegs for my thumbnails. I hope that makes sense!

HI Deanna!!
I'm so impressed with the units you create!!! A true talent! My question is in regard to the turkey glyph. Do you have the children do all the cutting out of the pieces or do you do that prior to the activity?? It's alot of cutting for one teacher to do, but also seems like alot of cutting for the kids.What do you suggest?
Thanks so much for sharing your work!!

Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 12, 2012Deanna Jump answered:
Hi Jennifer, I send the turkey feathers home with a parent helper and I cut the rest. I staple about 5 sheets of paper together so that I can cut out multiples at one time. You could also just give the kids rectangles for the feathers and have them cut off all 4 corners and rounding out the points. Hope that helps! I have had parents tell me the turkey was the centerpiece for their Thanksgiving dinner so he is worth it. :)

On  November 6, 2012Deanna Jump answered:
Hi Debbie,
1. It sounds like you are either opening with an old version of Adobe Reader or if you have a Mac, you may be opening it with a Mac program called "Preview" and not even know it.
Preview has documented problems opening modern Adobe files. If you have a Mac, try opening Adobe Reader first (rather than just double clicking on the file), then open the file within
Adobe Reader.
You may also choose to set the default reader to Adobe Reader by following the instructions below.

2. If you are still having opening and you know you are using Adobe, look to see if you have a newer version. You can check the version by clicking Help then About from within reader. If you have a version earlier than 5.0 or 6.0, you should update your reader. Please let me know if either of these actions solves the problem.

Hi Sally, This is an easy fix. :) You just need to update your PDF program. Also, if you are on a MAC make sure that you are viewing it in READER rather than PREVIEW.

Hi Deanna,
First, thanks for all your hard work and great ideas. I am downloading the Thanksgiving Math and Literacy Activities and several pages have black streaks on then when scrolling through the pages. I used a couple other computers and they all show the same image.

Is there any way to get the black streak removed? The page content is displaying nothing usable on the pages. Off-hand, I know one of the pages is the turkey glyph page, and there are several other pages, too.

Thanks, again, for all your help and awesome ideas.

Hi There, This is an easy fix. :)I'm copying and pasting this from my friend, Kim Adsit. Her husband is a computer genius so follow his advice and it will fix your problem. :)
1. Make sure you are using an up to date version of Acrobat Reader.
You can check the version by clicking Help then About from within
reader. If you have a version earlier than 5.0 or 6.0, you should
update your reader.
2. If you have a Mac, you may be opening it with a Mac program
called "Preview" and not even know it. Preview has documented problems
opening modern Adobe files. If you have a Mac, try opening Adobe
Reader first (rather than just clicking on the file), then open the
file within Adobe Reader. You may also choose to set the default
reader to Adobe Reader by following the instructions here.
To change the default reader on a Mac to Adobe:

----------------------------------------------

Click on the icon of a PDF file type then choose File --> Get Info
You will see a dialog box labeled something like this "sample.pdf" Info
Near the bottom, you will see a section titled "Open With:"
That indicates what application on you Mac is the default.
Click on the pop-up to bring up the list of possible applications
and select Adobe Reader (whatever version is installed), then click
"Change All" to make it the default application for all .pdf files.
The OS will then ask you if you are sure, click "Continue."
Now the Mac will use Reader instead of Preview
