Nope I did not. I don't have a clue how to create clip art, can't draw myself even on paper. haha My Kinders draw better than me, well some of them do! I believe I got the cheerleaders and football players at www.digiscrapkits.com a couple of years ago. They were the cutest ones I could find at the time, don't have the b/w masters.

Did you try to update the NEWEST version of Adobe? Also are you opening in Adobe? If you have a Mac computer or are opening it on a tablet it might not be opening it in Adobe, might be opening in preview. Nobody else has had a problem and it's been downloaded a bunch. If those 2 don't work e-mail me your username you used to purchase it so I can check and then I will e-mail you a copy of it. It is a PDF file. Thanks!

I love the addition ones. I have other speed fact programs but this one really works for my very low second graders since it's sequential and there are only 10 problems on each page. I think the doubles and near doubles would be nice to have on subtraction also.
I hope you're enjoying your Kinders. I've taught kinder for many years so I know how busy you are. Thank you for all of your wonderful products. Have a great year!

Beth,
I am so happy to hear that. Glad you like them and that they are working so well for your second graders. I did 10 so I could do 1 for each fact and that way we stayed within 20 as the answer, which is what they want for 2nd grade. Alright when I get time I will do the doubles and near doubles for subtraction as well.
I absolutely love my class. I'm so tired coming home due to the long commute as well, but it is so worth it to touch their little lives. Thanks for being one of my best customers!

Hi Beth,
Thank you so much for your purchase. I hope it is going well with your students. At this time I don't have one for subtraction. I just got a new job teaching Kindergarten and I'm up to my heels in work right now to play catch up. So if someone else has something similar for subtraction you may want to get it from them. I will put it on my to do list though. Would you want the doubles and near doubles included for subtraction?

Brian Hopkins  (TpT Seller)
Hi thanks so much, please leave some positive feedback. You can start with any card you want, that's what is nice about I Have Who Has games. Kind of makes a new game each time if you start with a different card! That's why I do not like to make a card say start or end. The end card would be whoever gets to the card that goes back to the first card!

Hi, I don't always put the standard in my freebies. This would be the standard that works best: 3.OA.7 It says multiplies and divides with all 1 digit numbers, I do have a few 10's in this one that I added after originally making the game or it would be tough for the game to ever end as I needed enough spaces on the board that children could place counters on. I hope this helps!

I wish TPT had PM. I hate writing all over your page! Please erase all this after you read it. Just wanted to add I realize you're not a music person, I didn't explain well. Sorry, my bad. There are zillions of teacher conventions from what I hear. Some are large enough to include music/life skills/off the beaten path with everything else. Some are small and focused on one area. I just meant we would have to fit whatever you're interested in. haha sometimes songs are easier than simple English. Okay, chow for now. Didn't mean to make a big deal outa this. Just a thought I had because I assumed you'd be repping the band at conventions. Never assume. Note to self.

Hey Jeannie, I answered you over on FB the other day. Nope, you haven't missed it, I haven't made one yet. I am so happy that you love them so much. Give me a couple of days, I'm thinking of what to say on them. I'll have them up hopefully by Dec. 1st! :-) I have them for all other months!

2.RL.4 starts with the word describe so it should have a period on the end rather than a question mark.

You are correct on that. I apologize that I and my proofreaders missed it. Give me a few minutes to correct it and I will upload the new version on TPT and you can redownload. I appreciate you letting me know and thanks for the purchase!

Buyer re: Patriotic Owl Themed Rounding Decimal Blast
I was wondering what are the directions of play? Is it matching? Do they provide the answer and check it? Thanks!

Hi! The directions are included in the packet. This version is rounding. They look at the number that is underlined and they round it to the nearest place value. You mix up the cards and the kids take turns flipping them over. They round it to the nearest place value. If correct, they pick up a star, which are mixed up on the floor like go fish. The stars have numbers from 0 to 5. If they get anything, but a zero they can keep the points or pick again. They can pick as many times as they want as long as they don't get a 0. If they get a 0 they lose all the points. So they have to decide when to take the total of points they have and stop! Click download preview and I have the directions there and also in the product!

I do have versions for adding, multiplying,sight words, etc. in my store if one of those works better for you! Thanks for the question!

Yes, I sure did! I don't have a class yet unfortunately, I'm subbing and interviewing trying to find a job. I am eager to use these when I find a job. Are you going to make them for Math too? The only thing I was thinking of and I don't know how to do it to still fit each day on one page is a notes section. That way you could reflect on what went well or what you may want to change.

Hi Brian, I am a self-professed grammar Nazi. Just wanted to double-check with you as to whether the commas should be used on these. They are sooo cute! Love you ideas! Roxanne

Brian Hopkins  (TpT Seller)
That's a really good question! Now I think about it probably not. I'm not great with grammar, which is why I have people proofread most everything I make! I'll get rid of it and upload it tomorrow. I think I heard that we can't upload things through the sale. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! If I forget please e-mail me at tigermagic@bellsouth and remind me to get rid of the commas!

Hello,
I am writing you in regards to the Teacher Appreciation Jack Pot. I made a huge error. I was so excited on Sunday I spent hours and hours on a very slow computer going to every site that participated. I might have looked around a bit and became a follower. I was so inspired by all of you bloggers. Anyways, I went to every single site and added the TPA Freebie to my wishlist because the computer I was on has a virus and was not cooperating. SSSLLLOOOWWW!!!! So I thought if I just add it to my wish list on Monday morning I will download them on my school computer where I do all or most of my school work anyway. I was so excited I woke up super early so I could get to school and download them. Come to find out you had to pay for them. I wanted to cry. I emailed tpt and when they finally got back to me they said unfortunately there was nothing they could do. I was suppose to download them. I don’t recall ever reading that anywhere but I am very new to all of this. They said I had to email each one of you individually. Yes, then and there I just about started to cry. I had 120 items I added to my wishlist. I was on the computer all day Sunday doing this.
I am just wondering if you would be so kind to email or what ever you have to do so that I can download your freebie. I thought I would try! Thank you for your creative inspiring blog!!

Um no sorry I had it still free on Monday morning and one of my friends even had their's available on Wednesday and said she got the same message from you so you didn't download hers on Monday when you could have at work. If you want the product download it, I have it currently on sale.

Laughter and Learning in First  (TpT Seller) re: Under The Sea Dolphin "Between" Numbers to 100
I do have a nice suggestion to make on the Under the Sea Dolphin. Maybe down the road you could make it go to 120 to cover the first grade common core. If not that's ok because I really like it anyways!! I also like your blog.
Thanks!

In FL we haven't started Common Core until next year so I had no idea! I will try to get to that! Is Before and After, Odd and Even, etc. all to 120 with Common Core? Please let me know as this would be super helpful!!!

Thanks Scipi. I've received that award a couple of times. I have them award on the right side of my page, but it's a bit down there. Thank you so much though!!! I also received from 2 people the VErsatile Blogger award, but it wanted like 15 new blogs and I don't have the time to hunt down 15 people so I did all parts to that award but that part to it. 15 is just so much. 5 was hard enough. Thanks for thinking of me though.

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: January Fun Behavior Note
I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating.

I have a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products. First, create a cover page which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. Add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page. 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. Save your advertising and blog info for the last page. Buyers really don't want to see it on the very first page they download.

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

I am now your 10th follower, and hope you will reciprocate at my store as well. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products

I am a follower of your blog, and I really like it, especially the title! Welcome to TPT, and good luck with selling!

Thank you so much for the rating and also the suggestions. I certainly need ideas to do better! My February freebie I did put my website under the footer for each one and kind of have a cover page, but it's more of what you said should be my last page. I'll keep trying to do better for next one. I never thought of putting the date either, good idea!

I just checked, I'm already following you on TPT! I thought I was as I've left you ratings in the past. I'm behind on catching up my followers.

I just left you a rating for that awesome glyph.

Thank you for your kind words and again for your feedback. I've asked many others and rarely get constructive ideas so I completely appreciate it!
