Hi Beth,
I was wondering if you offered your vowel digraph word work sets in a bundle? I am interested in purchasing both volumes. This is my first year teaching first grade, so I have had to purchase quite a bit of resources. Thanks for considering my request! :)

I actually tried to make them 1 set originally but for some reason the file wouldn't save as a PDF because it was too big so I made it into two different sets...and then it saved no problem. My computer may just be screwy though. Haha. I am sorry! I just started teaching a new grade this year too so trust me I know how hard it is to start over! :)

Sometimes it has to do with your version of Adobe Reader. There are usually tips in the frequently asked questions section part on TPT that tells you what to do if your downloads are having issues. Try that first. Let me know if it works.

Thank you so much for being willing to make these changes! The behavior codes I need are (from top to bottom): Role Model, Outstanding, Good Day, Ready to Learn, Think About It, Teacher's Choice, and Oh No! Stop! Will these changes also be reflected in the parent letter and student calendars? I'd love everything to match. If this is too involved/time consuming, perhaps you'd be willing to sell an editable version. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I'm happy to pay an additional amount for the changes. Thanks again :)
