Hi Alessia,
On page 10, your directions say to "look at the number on the watering can", but you don't have watering cans, you put the number on the flower. Just thought you might like to know and change it when you get a chance. Great product otherwise.

Buyer re: Emergent Readers - Sight Word Books
Is there an order that you introduce the sight words and books? Do the readers build on eachother?
January 17, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Alessia Albanese  (TpT Seller)
No I don't have an order but I would base it on your class. If you are just getting started with sight words and it's a Pre-K or K class I would start by using a sight word reader with a simple sight word like "am" or "see". You can give the copy with the fill-in-the-blank sight word to the students who are able to write it in. As for the ones still learning, perhaps they can circle the word on each page in the reader with full text. Hope this helps!

Hi there,
My product is the 3D Shapes Sorting Activity (not the froggie story problem). Try this suggestion from TpT and if that doesn't work, I would contact TpT to let them know:
"If you purchased/downloaded a PDF and it is blurry/black lines after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry, that's because you are still opening it with Preview!"

Hope this helps!

I printed the page and the leaves on the bell printed as little boxes.

I also have another question. Are you cutting the pictures and gluing them to the sentence strips or are you letting them sort and figure out like the previous charts?

Hi! Please e-mail me at kindergartenteacher@rogers.com and I will send you the file directly. I am not seeing the little boxes appear on my end.
With this set - it depends on the needs of your students. If you teach a group of students who need a challenge than I would say let them figure out the matching picture. I teach JK/SK (Pre-K and K together) so I will be gluing the pictures to the end AND making them match them (I print out 2 sets of pics). Hope this helps!

Melinda N. re: All Year Long - Pocket Chart Fun!
I have a question about your "all year long" pocket chart sentence pack. I bought it last year and used some of the activities. This summer, I'm trying to create all of them for the whole year. However, I've noticed that on the student response pages, the sentences don't line up-the repetitive sentences are not directly on top of one another and this confuses some of my students who struggle with reading. Does this make sense? For example, in your Sept pack, you have "I am a red apple." Then you have "I ____ a green apple. But those sentences are pushed over so everything doesn't line up. Is there any way you could go through all of the student response pages and line everything up so we could re-download it or somehow make it accesible to us? Several of the teachers I know who have bought this find we can't use it being like this because it throws our kids off. Thank you!
July 16, 2013 Report inappropriate comment

Alessia Albanese  (TpT Seller)
Hi there,
Thank you for your question. I have sold lots of these packs and have asked teachers for their feedback. Each sentence is aligned as best as possible. I will not be able to space out each word equally as the sentence will look silly compared to the next one. Perhaps if you showed the students an example of how to complete the worksheet, they will be able to follow along. I teach Pre-K/K and most of my students are able to complete the worksheet without any trouble once I model it for the first time.
Hope this helps!

Hi there! Thanks so much for letting me know! I fixed this page a while ago (when I was getting these ready for myself) and I must have forgotten to re-upload the correct version with that page! Please go back to MY PURCHASES and re-download this unit. I'm so sorry for the mistake! Thanks for bringing it my attention! :)

Hi Bobbi!
Many people have purchased and uploaded this file without any probelms. Try this suggestion from TpT and if that doesn't work, I would contact TpT to let them know:
"If you purchased/downloaded a PDF and it is blurry/black lines after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry, that's because you are still opening it with Preview!"
That way, you can prevent this from happening again.
Hope this helps! Thanks for your purchase!

Connie J. re: Down on the Farm Literacy and Math Activities
Hi Alessia - I bought this last year and was wondering if you were going to do a new farm (and zoo and ocean) unit that is more common core based? I love your stuff and would def buy all of them :)

Hi! I am actually revising my Down on the Farm unit now. It should be ready in about a week or so. Please check back and click on your Purchases button to re-download then. I am working on a Spring unit (nearly done!) and up next is an Insect Unit but I will definitely put Zoo on my list. I have an "Under the Sea" theme unit that you might be interested in. Thanks for the question!

Buyer re: All Year Long - Pocket Chart Fun!
I purchased the pocket chart activities but they won;t print correctly. The second page just prints the black and white bus with black dark lines throughout the page, no words I am not sure why. I printed the first page with the bus okay--I have never experienced this before--help please thank you Carolin

Hi Carolin,
Hmmm...I don't know why you are having these issues. Try this suggestion from TpT and if that doesn't work, I would contact TpT to let them know:

Hi there,
I would contact TpT directly and ask about the various ways of payment online. Perhaps that can accomodate you.
Thanks!

Hmmm....I usually just join in with the TpT sales so I'm not sure when another one is coming (I know there is always a big one in May for Teacher Appreciation Day). If you follow my blog I'll post something there.

Do you have a Canadian version with Canadian coins for the heads and tails activity?

Alessia Albanese  (TpT Seller)
Absolutely (I stopped including the Canadian versions of activities, printables and games in my pack because nearly all of my customers are American but I always have one that I use!). E-mail me at kindergartenteacher@rogers.com and I will e-mail you that page with the Canadian coins.
Thanks!
