Sims Safari  (TpT Seller) re: The perfect start to the day for any Substitute Teacher (PowerPoint)
Hi Mr. James! I'm totally IN LOVE with the idea of your "perfect start to the day" PowerPoint! I'm about to begin subbing after staying at home with my girls for 4 years and teaching for 11 years before that. I can't open your product because I only have the 2003 version of PPT on my home computer, and it's created in PPTX. Is there any possible way you could re-save it as an earlier version of PPT so I can open it? I would be FOREVER grateful!
Thanks so much,
Laura Sims

Hi Laura
You can view the PowerPoint using this viewer from Microsoft:

Buyer re: Maths Starters BUNDLE (1,2,3,4) (Powerpoint with answers)
Hello, I just purchased your 1,2,3,4 bundle but only received 1,2, and 3. Please let me know what I can do to get 4. Thank you.

Hi.
That's very strange as the 4 are all zipped into one file and all others TpTers who have downloaded this package have had no problems.
I'll log a call with TpT support, and ask them to look into this for me and then get back to you asap.
Barrie

Have now uploaded a revised version with all 4 PowerPoints and loads of enhancements... Barrie

Buyer re: Maths Starters - FREE Taster (PowerPoint with Answers)
I purchased all of your Math Starters PowerPoints. Note that several download with the same name. I had to change the file names, so they would not copy over the top of each other. Am looking forward to using them.

Thanks for the info - I uploaded them with different file names so will log a ticket with TpT support to see what happened here.
Hope they go down well with your students - what I found was that they each appeals to different students... some love the computation, some the lateral thinking, some the logic challenges, some the shapes... Something for everyone hopefully.

Buyer re: Paper Rock Scissors Stone
This looks great - but could you add directions on the PP so kids could understand better?

I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done! Since you are asking for feedback, here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.

Add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do use these? When? Etc.) 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/slide. Here is how you do that. Use the insert and go to the right. You should see symbols there. Insert the copyright symbol, your name and date. It should look something like this: © V. Rauch (Scipi), 2011 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/slides.

It is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below to gather some ideas. If you care to, a rating or any feedback you might have would be great.

I am now your 5th follower, and if you would like, you are welcome to follow my store as well: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products

The best of luck as you sell on TPT!

1. "directions or suggestions page for the teacher" - will include this in future :)
2. "put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation" - already there :)
3. "number your pages/slides" - will include this in future :)
4. "rating or any feedback you might have would be great" - will do (and I am a Follower) :)

Thanks so much for your time and for sharing your experience - greatly appreciated.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over 10 years experience as a class teacher (ages 7 to 13). Over 20 years experience as an IT trainer/consultant in the corporate and Government world. Over 7 years as a Substitute teacher (ages 5 to 13) and Personal Tutor (ages 5 to 16). Having worked outside of the classroom, I bring huge amounts of business proven experience to my classroom practice and lesson designs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Calm, organized, professional, patient :-) I am comfortable with being flexible and adaptable in my teaching, with the goal of always trying to cater for individual learning styles. I am an extremely calm, balanced, patient, empathetic and imaginative teacher, determined to motivate and enthuse the children. See: My Teaching Style

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have huge experience in the world of education (with both little children and bigger children - adults) together with a lifetime in the world outside of the classroom - a great combination for a teacher. See: My Feedback from parents

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BA(hons) Social Psychology with Statistics. Post Graduate Certificate in Education. Higher National Certificate in Advanced Microprocessor Technology. Certified Lotus Professional. Microsoft Certified Specialist. See: My Background

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I spent my first few years after graduation working first in adult psychiatric units, and then in SEN units. Having gained this invaluable experience, I realized that teaching was my passion, and then spent nearly a decade as a classroom teacher, confidently teaching the full range of subjects to children aged 7 through to 13. During this period, I had special responsibility for Science, Games, Multi-Cultural studies and ICT, and ran out-of-school clubs for computing, reading for pleasure, creative writing, rugby, soccer and badminton. When an opportunity arose to travel and teach in India and Nepal for a year, I moved on and on my homecoming, decided to combine my passion for teaching with my interest in computers, and embarked on a new career, first as an IT trainer, and then as an IT consultant. I have now returned to teaching, bringing a lifetime of real world experience. See my thoughts on things educational here: My Blog on Education
