The kids thought this was the grandest thing ever! I always enjoy doing the "Ouch" projects for this sound, but this packet is hard to beat for a fun way to work with ou/ow. Traveling as an out of towner is a great way end the week and assess the kids.

It still looks like the title on pages 40 and 45 says "tlip it" instead of "flip it."

On  October 8, 2012Cara Carroll answered:
Hi Carol. Your download is not incomplete :) But I can totally understand how it would seem that way! I did not include pictures for those two words as I was unable to find the graphics that accompanied the words :) You can omit these two words when your kids match the pictures/words and/or you can also have your kids sort only the words :) Does that make sense?! That's how I did this activity with my kids and it worked wonderfully!!! Hope you enjoy your purchase!! Thanks so much!! Many blessings to you!

On  April 10, 2012Carissa Bass (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Cara, thank you for all your great products! I see that you use PowerPoint and PDF files. My question is - how do you get all of your pages or slides to appear on one page on your download preview? I can not seem to figure that out!
Thanks!
Crissy
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 11, 2012Cara Carroll answered:
I do this in Power Point also. There's probably a MUCH more efficient way, but it works for me! Save ALL the slides in your packet as a jpeg {power point gives you this option}. Now open up a new document. Insert all of the pages you want to show in your preview as a picture/jpeg...kind of like you're inserting clip art. Just minimize the pictures to the size that you want and arrange them all over the new document like you would for a preview. Does that make sense?!?! Pretty easy!!! Hope this helps!!
On  April 1, 2012Ms Arnold (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Cara,
I don't have a question but wanted to let you know I sent you something to your First Grade Parade e-mail. Just wanted to show my gratitude and thank you for all the wonderful ways you inspire us all.
