Hi I just purchased the glyph packet- cant wait to use it with my students! I noticed from the other comments that you have a version for older children- would you send me the version that would be appropriate for fifth grade? Thanks!

On  September 12, 2013SunnyDays  answered:
Hi there,
Did I send this to you already through email? If not, just leave me your email and I'll send it :)

On  August 26, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I noticed you answered a question about the letters referring to a "font you suggested". I cannot seem to find what that suggested font was. I also may need a version that goes to age 12.
Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 26, 2013SunnyDays  answered:
I used PC Chunky, landscape on legal so I could make them as big as possible. For the names that were really long, I typed the extra letters on another line and just taped the two sheets together.
Another good free font to use is Janda Manatee http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Janda-Manatee-Font-Personal-Use-353872 If you need a version for older students, that's no problem. Just email me at ShopSunnyDays@me.com and I'll send it :)

Hi there! I love this! What did you do for students with more than 7 letters in their name?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 7, 2013SunnyDays  answered:
Hi Stephanie, For kids who have names longer than 7 letters, I have them start over and repeat the pattern they used on letter 1, so letter 8 and letter 1 will be the same, letter 9 and letter 2 will be the same, etc. I have a version for kids aged 6-12. If you need that one, just purchase the one here on tpt and email me at ShopSunnyDays@me.com and I'll send you that one directly :)

Hi, I'm having trouble getting this to fit on the paper. I've tried adjusting the size of the picture but it still cuts off the last column. :/

On  August 16, 2012SunnyDays  answered:
Hi there, It needs to be printed in landscape on legal sized paper. If you're doing both of those things, look for an option to fit to page size or maybe try printing at 90%.
Hope that helps!

On  July 13, 2012SunnyDays  answered:
Hi there,
You can either make tracers for them using the ones in the packet, or you can download the font I suggested and print it for them <--that's what I do. Does that help? :)

I bought this to use for back to school. When trying to print the directions, I can't seem to fit it on regular size paper even when I choose "landscape" on the printer. Any suggestions??
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 17, 2012SunnyDays  answered:
Hi there, it's actually formatted to print in legal sizes paper. I think it depends on your printer too. One one of mine I can choose "shrink to printable area" and it will print on letter size, but smaller. On another, it will just get cut off. Using legal size should do it. Thanks :)

On  June 11, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Hi SunnyDays,
I recently received the packet, What's in a Name Glyph. I'm excited to use it for next year, but I have one request. Can you include age 11 and 12 to the age column? I teach fifth graders and there's always a handful that are older than the other students. I would really appreciate it if you can make that change because I'm looking forward to using this as a back-to-school activity. Thank you so much!

No problem! I just want to be sure you get what you paid for :) You should be able to download it again if you go up to the top and click on my purchases. If you have trouble, email me at ShopSunnyDays@me.com and I'll be happy to send you another copy directly. I hope you end up loving it here at TPT as much as I do!

If a student has more letters they just start over and repeat the directions in order for each additional letter. Hope that helps!
