Keri T. re: Write the Room Literacy Centers - The Complete Set
I absolutely LOVE using these in my class!!!! I was wondering if you could add another recording sheet for students who may need a little more support..... Can you add a small picture in each blank box so the students know specifically what word to write? That way they can read the words to a friend and their parents? I had some kiddos who would write the words, but then had no idea what it said. Just thought I would ask. Thank you again for all you do!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Keri. Thank you for your question. Good idea but to revise all my Write the Room products (nearly 50!) would take me too long. Perhaps you could choose one of the many differentiated worksheets included in each pack. Many worksheets are appropriate for beginner readers, such as label, match the word to the picture, rhyming words, etc. Hope this helps!

I bought your product and have a question with Tryin' Lion. The directions say, find the word that matches with each picture. The pictures are all the same with the word cards. So if you have the picture bed, there is the word card bed. I'm not sure how you find the word that rhymes? None of the words rhyme with the pictures!

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
Alessia Albanese
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!

"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!"

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!

Hi there,
Many people have purchased and uploaded this file without any problems. 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. You can also e-mail me at kindergartenteacher@rogers.com if that still doesn't work and I'd be happy to send you the file.
Hope this helps! Thanks for your purchase!

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!

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!

I have used these WTR centres throughout the school year and my students absolutely love them. Any chance that you will create a Nursery Rhyme WTR?
Thx, Lori

Message in a Bottle - Literacy Decoding Activities

Hi, these look wonderful and such fun! Can you please tell me what the messages are. Often any USA themes don't have any meaning for us in the down under.

Hi there,
Here are a few of the sentences students have to decode in this pack:
- I like going to school!
- We are all good friends.
- What do you like to eat for lunch?
- My teacher's name is _________.
....and the rest are pretty much general statements, questions, etc. that follow along those lines. Hope this helps!

I just purchased your playdough mats. These will great - especially for the beginning of the year. I just have one request. Is there anyway you could change the word "diamond" to "rhombus" on the shape card to reflect the official mathematical vocabulary? Thanks!

Hello,
I purchased this set awhile ago. When I was preparing the sets for August and September, I noticed the "Pencil Colors" response sheet has the Canadian spelling of "Colours." Is it possible for you to send me a sheet with the American spelling? Thanks!

Hi! Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention! I didn't realize! I updated the product to include the American spelling of "Colors" on page 19. Please go back to My Purchases and re-download it. Thanks again! And happy summer!!!

Buyer re: Let's Go! Transportation Literacy and Math Activities
Hi Alessia,
I love these transportation activities. My students are going to really enjoy them, and they touch upon a number of concepts I am ready to teach, so thank you! There are a few slides early on where the text appears to be off the slide. I haven't test printed, but am thinking it will appear that way when I print. Also, there is one slide towards the end that has some directions overlapping the activity. Would those be easy to fix? I am hoping to print many of these activities out in a few days, so wanted to check in and see. Thanks again!

Hi! Thanks for the question....so sorry about that! I can't tell anything's wrong on my end so I asked a few friends to buy the unit and see. I fixed pages 6-8, 40, 69, 107 and 142 so that the text isn't cut off and the pictures are all on the page. I have NO IDEA what happened! Try redownloading the unit again....go to My Purchases and redownload from there. So sorry for the delay. Happy summer!
