I was disappointed that this included only one page of vocabulary words and five more lined yet blank pages.
On  September 4, 2012Once Upon a Creative Classroom answered:
That "one page" of vocabulary includes 95 words from the entire book. The lined pages were for the students to write their words and they were divided into the same sections as the vocabulary lists. The lined pages did not take away anything from the unit. However, to avoid negative feedback again, I simply took them out. If you are interested in them, I would be happy to email to you at catch211@msn.com. I hope my buyers are enjoying the other 64 pages that are included in this unit. So much to utilize!

The clip art on many of the pages covers part of the first question on those pages. I will have to retype the pages before giving to students.
On  September 4, 2012Once Upon a Creative Classroom answered:
Can you send me your email so I can send this to you in a pdf format so that you don't have to retype? My email is catch211@msn.com.

Very practical. Some of the larger fonts do not read correctly and I am not sure what the blank lined pages were for but other than that I intend to use potency.

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  March 29, 2012,  Buyer asked:
I bought this today and the content looks great but it is not printing correctly. The text is behind some of the clip art and some words are lost on the margins. Some fonts are a lot larger than others. Could you send it to me in pdf form so I can see/print it as you intended it to look? I would really appreciate it!

Absolutely! I am away from my computer so give me a couple hours! Sorry!

I just sent it to you and also updated it on the website so that a pdf will download instead of Word.
