Hi
I am a new ESL teacher-I teach 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades. You have some great stuff! I am curious about the best way to print all these things in color. I cannot print in color at home, and not at school. Do I put it all on a flashdrive and go to Staples or something like that. This is all new. What do most folks do? Thanks, Beth

On  September 8, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I saw that someone has asked about updating the set with lines for older children and that you said you would be adding regular lined pages to the set. I teach third grade (but with a class reading/writing on a 1st grade level...mostly special ed students) so I would love to use this as it is simple enough for their level but I don't want to make it look to "babyish" with the primary lines. Does this download include the updated pages with regular lines?

On  September 19, 2013A Cupcake for the Teacher answered:
Hi there! I have not updated the lines on the pages yet. It's on my to-do list!

Do you have any writing goals that align with this pack? I'm looking for something that the students can use to monitor and track their own progress and development. Something along the lines of 'I can add details to make my story interesting and informative'.....'I remember to add punctuation at the end of every sentence'....things like this.

Hi there! Love, love, love this reference for students to use in the classroom. Do you have a version for older grades (without writing lines?) or when I purchase the kit, can you send a copy? I saw someone ask a similar question, but I didn't want to purchase the wrong one if another version exists! Thanks!!!

I love love love your writing center starter kit and the add on kit, I can't wait to use it this year with my students. I really liked the writing pages that went along with it. I teach second grade and at the beginning of the year we use the primary writing lines however around Christmas time we start to transition to regular lines to prepare them for 3rd grade. I was wondering if you could make another add on kit with the same writing pages but have regular lines instead of the primary lines?

Hi Tonya! That's a great idea! I can add regular lined pages to the pack.

I recently purchased your writing center and I have put it together and I'm waiting for the start of the school year to see how it goes. Thanks a lot for the work you put into it. What I would like to know is what font or program you used to get the dotted lines that continued across the page even when you spaced. I have trace (handwriting) fonts but the dotted lines stop when I space. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. If you're not sure what I mean refer to the page with the lion and zebra. Thanks again.

Hi! I'm so glad you like the set!! There is a font called "Penmanship Font" and it's a free DL {just type it into Google}. To get the spaced dotted lines, you will need to hit the ```` key, which is located next to the 1. :)

Hi, This is awesome. Because it is difficult to see all of the graphics I do have a question. I teach level II and III HIGH SCHOOL special education. This is the level that many of my students are at; however, I was wondering if the graphics could be considered "age appropriate" for young high school students.

On  August 18, 2012A Cupcake for the Teacher answered:
Hi there! Thank you! Well, this unit was made for young elementary... so the graphics are more "cartoony." But if you think that your students could benefit from the center itself, I'd say that the graphics would be fine.
