I LOVED all the cute activities/worksheets. I did have a little trouble with the printing where faint lines were printing out randomly on the worksheets...I have never had that problem before. I didn't have time to troubleshoot, so just whited out the lines. But overall, LOVED the artwork, as did the kids, and great ideas for our Presidents unit.
On  February 27, 2013A Cupcake for the Teacher answered:
So happy you loved it!! The line thing is strange-- haven't heard that before!! I'm glad you were able to work around it ;)

Short story about both presidents would also be nice to use with the graphic organizers.

Adorable art projects. The only suggestion I would have is to make the faces wider. My kids didn't cut perfect and then there was a space between the hair and the face.

Oh no! I'm glad you liked them though!!

I loved the patterns but I didn't like having to white out the instructions and labels that are typed right on the patterns.

Sorry about that! :( The intention was for the patterns to be printed onto cardstock to make tracers... my newer stuff has the labels *outside* of the patterns to avoid the problem you ran into. I'm glad you enjoyed the project, and thanks for purchasing!! :)

You're very welcome, I'm glad you liked it!! I drew a blank on a fun activity for George-- Abe made it easy, keeping things in his hat! :)

On  March 1, 2013,  Buyer asked:
So, I am COMPLETELY in love with this unit! My class produced some wonderful writing, and of course it's much more fun to write on super cute paper! I do have a favor to ask though. During this time of year, all grades in our district are working on writing opinion or persuasive writing, so of course I used all this wonderful writing as a basis for that, and we wrote about who we thought was the best or most important president and why. However, we were so sad to have to use paper with less-than-cute graphics to write our final draft on. Any chance I can talk you into adding a page like that to this unit?

On  February 12, 2013A Cupcake for the Teacher answered:
Hi! Thanks for purchasing! It's possible that your PDF reader is not up-to-date, which could be causing the printing issue. If it was recently updated, then perhaps you need to DL the unit a second time... if that doesn't work, please email me at acupcakefortheteacher@gmail.com and I'll see if I can help another way!

On  February 3, 2013,  Jamie R. asked:
I love your President's Day pack and the craftivities that go with it! I can't wait to use them with my class. I know they will love them. I was hoping to give the students a choice to write a short report about either George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, or our current President, Barack Obama. However, I would like for each student to be able to make a craft to go with their writing. I was wondering if you make other craftivites by request. I am looking for a Barack Obama craftivity. Please, let me know. Even if you don't do crafivities by request, I do love your packets and work. Thank you for sharing!
