I used the What is Veteran's Day booklet with my first graders today. The booklet was really cute except that the Coast Guard military branch was left out. I did not discover this until I went through and started to explain the packet. Earlier I had explained that the Coast Guard was added some years back. The booklet did not back up my information. I could add the Coast Guard to the booklet, but the graphics would not match and look right.

On  November 3, 2013,  Sabrina S. asked:
I love this Veteran's Day packet (as I do all of your creations). I did notice that the Coast Guard was left off of the emergent reader. We actually have a teacher whose brother is in the Coast Guard and visits the children during this time of year. Could you possibly include that branch into your packet? Thank you!

On  November 2, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Deanna, I have no complaints on your units. I love them. The only thing I wish you would do is reverse the children's books so I can print and fold them as it is now you have to cut them in half and reverse them to print so they will turn out right . The cover is always on the opposite side. Thank you!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 3, 2013Deanna Jump answered:
Hi There, I make my books to print one sided so that they are durable enough for the kids to read over and over. Print them as is , fold them in half with the blank side facing inward and staple on the left. Hope that helps! :)
On  September 17, 2013Lessons In History (TpT Seller) asked:
Deanna, after reading over and over on the forums about how important preview files are for products, I've just noticed that the few products of yours that I've skimmed over just now don't have any. Do you normally upload previews? Do you think it's an important thing to have, especially in newer stores? Just curious as to your opinion. I've relatively new, having been here since November but only seriously creating/selling/etc. since July. Thanks so much for your input! :-)

Hi Deanna,

I am a friend of Kim Adsit's and I have heard all about you!! Kim and I wrote Hooks, Books, and Cooks and Animal Hooks, Books, and Cooks many years ago.... I also used to present for SDE. Did I mention that I'm from Georgia?.... used to live in Macon!!! Anyway, after having children and taking a sabbatical, I am jumping back into doing what I love! I have just started a blog (www.outrageousfun321.blogspot.com) that's only about 2 months old and I would be truly honored if you would be a follower on my blog and on TPT??? Thanks so much and I hope I can meet you sometime!!!

Hi Deanna,
I don't have a question, but I do want to commend you for this product. I purchased this several months ago and I am so glad that I have the opportunity to implement it. The kids in my class just love singing the song American Solider and it has been on my mind a lot, especially over this three-day weekend. The lyrics are so appropriate for the little ones because they can relate to it. Above all, thanks for allowing me to honor our veterans (as well as our soliders) with my class. It is hard to find a well put-together resource on this subject matter for kinders. KUDOS!!!

Hello Deanna!
I have a general TpT question for you, not specifically related to this assignment. I am just starting and wondering how you found your audience in the very beginning? Did you buy ad space? I have had materials available for about two weeks and am having no luck - even with my free download. Thank you in advance!

I just downloaded and printed this but did not see the pattern templates. I see the step by step instructions but no actual template. Overall I love this for my kindergarteners but disappointed in that one aspect.

Update- I downloaded it twice last night and only 40 slides downloaded each time. I tried again this morning and this time 44 slides downloaded. I did give it a complete chance as I can't open the document until it's finished downloading. Thank you.

I just purchased and downloaded and see where you give step by step directions for the soldier, but not an actual template to copy onto colored construction paper. Do you have those templates or do you just free hand everything? I like to let my students cut the pieces out so a template of each item is what I was expecting to purchase. Thanks for the help! Love your stuff!

Hi there, I don't like the projects to look cookie cutter so I give the children the rectangles and squares and they follow my oral directions to create the soldier. However, I just added pattern templates for teachers who would rather use patterns. So they are there now. Thanks so much!

Hi

I also tried to print your veteran's day math and literacy activities and the same thing happened as with the name package-the pictures came out but thick black lines.

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

Deanna,
I am new to this teachers pay teachers site. I have purchased several clipart cd's. I see that you use some cute clipart on your documents. How do I know if I have the right to use the clipart I have purchased on my documents? I just don't want to get into any problems.

You just need to read the terms of use and make sure that it says you can use it for commercial use. :)

Deanna,
I love all your work. I bought your Veteran's Day unit today. When I downloaded it at school I found many parts of the pages are blacked out. Can you help! Thanks!

Love the unit. We are going to make the soldiers and want to know what "sign" you had with the display. I may have overlooked it in the unit, if not are you willing to share that with me?

Thanks so much,

Hi Pam, I will add that to the unit this week. Once I add it you will be able to go into your Downloads folder and print out the added pages. :)

I think this is adorable but I was wondering if all of the materials only say "soldier" or if there are others that say "marine", "seaman", or "airman"? I teach at a DoDEA school overseas and as silly as it might seem this matters to the kids.
