Hi Ann,

I am interested in a few of your projects, but it would be nice to have more pages in the sample section to look at.

Hi
I intended the first slide only to be the cover page, without thinking you will need a first slide. I'm sorry- I'll make one and add it. I can send it to you right to your email if you would like, so that you don't have to download the whole thing again. It's up to you. I'll do that as soon as I can. I'll have TPT send you a note saying it's been updated. Thanks for the reminder! How did you like it?

Hi Ann,
Thanks for your quick response. I will not need the PP presentation until Monday or Tuesday of next week. hope that works for you. My room has a combination of pink, turquoise, yellow, and blue. If I could have the presentation with some or all of those colors in a polka dot theme that would be great. Would it be possible to have some school images (school, group of children, composition notebook, math related image, reading book, etc.) on the slides? I would like to be able to move the images around on the slide too, if possible. Is it possible to also include an additional 5 blank pages? I hope this isn't too much. Thanks again.

Hi
I finished the polka dot themed ppt. It's uploaded onto my store. I hope you like it! It uses the colors you requested, and school themed graphics. I'm not sure if the turquoise color was what you were going for. Turquoise can run a lot of different ways. I wasn't sure if you wanted more green, or blue, or bright as opposed to muted. So let me know what you think!

Jamie P. re: Adventures in Art: A year long plan
Hi there, thank you so much for sharing this! As a regular ed. teacher who has to also teach her students art this year I am thinking your download along with the recommended book will be a huge help! I am wondering if you wouldn't mind me asking, about how long are these lessons? We are told what times to teach what subject and I am not allotted a hole lot of time for art so am wondering how long these lessons are before I order this book. If you could get back to me I would greatly appreciate it, thank you!

Hi! Thank you for your response! I hope it does help. I usually plan 45 min. to an hour for art, so that I can discuss the element, show some prints, do the project and clean up. I think if you needed to shorten it to a half hour, it could work. But not less than that, probably. Good luck! And try half.com when you order the book. They have some cheap books!

Ashley B. re: Pretty Paisley Classroom Decorations
I was sad when I showed my team the behavior chart that I had printed (I took it to Kinkos and had it printed without looking carefully as I had a lot of things to print.) It would be very confusing for my students since red has traditionally always been the color for trouble.

I'm sorry for the confusion. The freebie will only download as a pdf. It's really just meant to be used for ideas, since it isn't editable, and some of the information won't pertain to others. The ppt version IS editable, and it's for sale at my store for $2. It's unfortunately not free. I'm not able to give that version away as a freebie because of the TOU from the graphics I purchased. I'll be changing the name of the freebie so that there is no confusion about that. Thanks for your understanding.

Hello. I love the enchanted forest theme and I purchased your products today. But when I was looking at the Behavior Chart the colors were backwards with what is written on each one. I was hoping you would be able to send me them in the opposite order Ex: outstanding should be on pink while parent contact should be on red. Thank you sooo much!!! Rachele rbarrett@interact.ccsd.net

At First Grade Wow, you'll find The Think Outside the Box Thursday activities. I use clay, playdough, moon sand, blocks, legos, etc. for Fidget with it Friday. I don't necessarily plan to have them use a printable to go with it. At least for now. For Magazine Monday, I plan to just use paper and the spelling words that are posted in my classroom and have the kids cut out the letters and glue them. Tuesday and Wednesday's days I don't have yet, I just plan to find them as I go. I hope that helps. If I come up with any, I'll attach them to this file. Check back from time to time. Pinning it would probably be the fastest way to keep checking. If you send me your email address, I can send you anything I make as I get it done. Thanks!

No, unfortunately the pack is not editable. I don't have the Adobe Pro necessary for that. Hopefully someday soon! I will edit some of it for you if I can. I can add name plates, no problem. They will be blank with the penmanship lines added. You'll have to write the names, or tell me the names of your students and I'll add them for you in the sketch block font.

Celena O. re: Community: A Place to Live, Work, and Play
Hi I just bought your Community packet and was wondering if you have it in a different font? The font is adorable but will be very hard for some of my students to read. Also some of the cutesy letters aren't correct (capitals in the middle of the word) and I know my 2nd graders would hound me if I used it. I love the ideas presented in the packet but I was hoping you could help with the fonts. Let me know if you can help me out!

Buyer re: Classy Classrooms- polka dot decorations with brown, pink, sage and blue
I would love this with lime green instead of sage if possible...
August 10, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Ann Sielaff
Ann Sielaff  (TpT Seller)
Hi!
I appreciate your thoughts on the lime, as I tried to decorate with sage and found about NOTHING!!! My classroom is not decorated yet, and this set took me a long time to make, so honestly, I'm not sure if I will have time to change it. I'm very new to creating products, and everything takes me a sadly long time to make. And school starts Monday. The other problem is that some of the backgrounds I bought that way and I doubt they can be changed. But I will try!!!! The thing I did in my own classroom is just purposely used different shade of light green, along with different shades of blue that looked tropical, because my room also has a tropical theme along with the polka dots. So, I'm sorry for the long answer. I will see what I can do. Thanks for the purchase. I hope you like it and can make it work, even with the sage.

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Contractions Make Us Buggy
I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie.

Here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products. Your cover page is atrractive and colorful, but go back and capitalize each of the words of the title. Move your directions or suggestions to the second page. You might also list several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.

Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also, number your pages.

If you have time, I’d would love to have your input on my freebie listed below.

I am now your 12th follower, and hope you will reciprocate at my store as well. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products

Welcome to TPT, and good luck with selling!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 11 years of teaching experience, mostly in grades 1-2. I'm back at first grade and I love it! It's really fun to watch them develop and mature as readers and learners over the course of the year. I'm married to a principal which has its positive and negative! I teach in a Christian school which gives me many blessings, one of which is supportive parents and other Christian teachers and families!
