I just purchesed the K C C lesson pack. When I down loaded the file The only thing I can access is the lesson plan template. When I tried to open the other pages a message comes up telling me that it was damaged.

Jan - try to download it again - sometimes the embedded link gets a little wonky in the transition. If you are still having troubles with the second download, then just email me at cpreston@pengrouponline.com and I will send you a link from my personal copy to download from my own site. :) Thanks!

Hi!
I just purchased your Tree Love mini planner (it is crazy cute) and am setting up a planner for next year....can you make a notes page to go with it?(not asking you to add it to the file-I would be happy to purchase it separately) I envision something like the meetings page but filled with blank lines with a heading of "notes." A matching note page would be perfect right next to the monthly calendar and then the month's lesson planners after..
Thanks for the great work you do!

Hi Charity,
Sorry to bother you on TpT, but I couldn't find a way to contact you on your websites. It seems the blogroll forms and 'contact me' buttons are all not working. I'd like to email you about being added to the blog roll and the Middle School Maestros pinterest board. My email is kristendembroski@gmail.com and my blog is www.kristendembroski.com I'd love to hear from you! Thanks, Kristen (P.S. Please feel free to delete this Q&A, and I apologize again - I couldn't figure out how to contact you)

Hi, Charity…We're "Marlypeg Music," and you've been such a big help to us in understanding how this tpt business works. (Thank you so much for that!) Now we have everything functioning well, but are trying to figure out how to select our own "featured" items in our store. We've devoted several hours to searching the Q/As, but haven't
found an answer. Could you tell us how to do this? (We're thinking it must be
something really simple. We just don't know where to look.)

Charity Preston  (TpT Seller)
All the Common Core State Standards are contrived from the set of standards (which is why they are National), BUT every state had an opportunity to make up to 20% changes in their own versions to deviate from the national set. That was up to each state. All of my materials correlate with the National version. I would say to check your state's version with the National set to see how much of a variance there is. The national set can be found at core standards.org. Thanks!

Hi, Charity...We are a team of two dedicated teachers, still trying (after two weeks) to upload our "freebie" properly on to tpt.
We have seen your first video MANY TIMES, but are still struggling just to put up our items. When we have asked for help from tot, reference is frequently made to "windows" on tpt that we do not see on our screen!!!!
We have downloaded the "Seller's Maunal" only to be disappointed that there is NOTHING more specific to actually guide us as to how to download our products.
We are hoping that you might be able to assist us with this mysterious process, as we can find little on the tpt site (except for your video) that actually helps us know what to do!
Do you know if there are actual, factual, step-by-step written instructions for newbies like us. Having materials available and ready to go, but not being able to upload them
properly. is proving to be quite frustrating.
We sense your patience and clarity in your videos; can you help us

Have you thought about selling the annotated standards separately? Or better yet, having it be a free preview? I don't need all the other stuff, I have a checklist, assessments, plans, activities, but I wanted an annotated document to make sure I am hitting everything the standard is asking for. For example I saw an annotated version for 3rd & realized that RL.3.2 is asking for students to tell the theme, and to summarize the details.

I have 2 questions for you. I teach 1st grade, so do you have any differentiating spelling hw for 1st grade? Also, I watched your setup video on tpt. I just started this year. I'm selliing most things at $2.00. How do you know when to change your prices, after a couple of months, 1 year, etc. Did you set your prices high and if 5 people bought it, then that's the right price? Any input would be great. Thank you so much for the videos and yr time!

Hi Nuong! 1. I don't have anything specific for 1st grade spelling at this time - sorry!
2. Pricing is kind of hard to judge. I basically decide on what I think I would be willing to pay for it, then adjust after a couple of months whether I need to lower it or raise it. Once I get a spot where it is selling where I think it should be, I leave as is for a long time unless I feel it warrants a price change.
Not sure if that helps or not, but there is no method to my madness really when it comes to pricing. -Charity

On any of the labels, use the full size sticker label sheets and cut them apart. All the files will format and print differently on different printers, so using the full size sheets guarantees that they will work perfectly.

Hi Charity,
I recently noticed I was removed from the High School Herd / Middle School maestro boards. I scrolled the Q&A to see if I could find an answer first and noticed one of your responses concerning not following board guidelines. I made sure to only post products that were geared toward 8-12 grade as specified; and sporadically did this to make sure I was not cluttering the boards. While I am confused as to why I was removed, I realize the boards belong to you and ultimately respect your decision. I appreciate the fact that you allowed me an opportunity to join in the first place. Thanks!

Charity, I LOVE these! I was so glad to see that you made them in the nautical theme, too.

Two questions/problem:

1) In the 2" square stickers the lighthouse sticker--the name is high enough that it covers the "your work" words. Especialy with a shorter name like "Andy", but even with a longer name.

2) I couldn't find the Avery 2806 or 2807 labels. Could they be the 22806 and 22807 labels? That is what came up on my search and look like the correct ones?

Thanks again!

Hi Kaylan - I am not allowed to give you anything other than a pdf due to to copyright restrictions from the clip art sellers, and I already have a ton of other projects on the docket so I don't have time to create custom work. But, I just checked and I have no problem getting the font to work on the editable version. I am guessing you are not opening it is Adobe Reader. Some computers have the default set to open the file in Preview. It won't work right. Make sure you have downloaded the newest version of Adobe Reader (it is free) and manually open the file in that and your customization should work fine. Thanks!

Jaclynn Jasko  (TpT Seller) re: Nautical Theme Grade Two Common Core Lesson Planning Pack
Hi Charity. I am doing a nautical theme this year and would love to have your individual "I can" posters. However, I will not be able to utilize the rest of the packet as our school already has a tracking system in place for us. Is there a way you could post just the "I can" posters for a certain price?
Thanks!

Hi Jackie! Sorry - they are already bundled together and to split everything off would take me forever. :(

Natalie Corr  (TpT Seller) re: Beach Theme Sterlite Container Templates
Hi. I love the beach prints. I printed out the editable beach front portion but when I print the sides it prints blank. I have a MAC computer..is there a trick? Also, for the 2093 front it cuts off the sides because the 8 1/2 cardstock isn't long enough. Have I done something wrong? Thanks for any help you can give me to rectify these issues.

Hi Natalie! Check your printer settings. Also, I used legal sized paper for the large labels to print on. As for the blank ones - try to "print as image." They were created on a mac, so there shouldn't be an issue with that. Hopefully that helps. :)

Buyer re: Differentiated Spelling Homework Menu
I will be new to third grade. We don't directly teach cursive until the end of the year. Do you think it is okay to leave that as an option anyway? Awesome list. So excited to implement the choices.

Sure! Some of the kids are thrilled to try even before they know how to do it. :)

It is exactly the same, but just in third grade format. What were you needing to see?

Buyer re: Space Theme Classroom Essentials Teacher Set
I bought the space theme classroom set but I am having trouble opening the word wall letters. It says 1 page at the top of the file when I open it but not all the letters are there. Am I doing something wrong?

They are just the template, not all the actual letters. Just make sure the file is opened in the newest version of Adobe Reader (not in preview, which is the default for many computers), and click on the blue Highlight Form Fields button. From there, you can add the letters and print off. Thanks so much!

Hi Charity! First of all I want to tell you how much I love the Nautical Theme Binder. I was wondering if you had another template for the Newsletter. I love the graphics in the one you provided, but I am looking for something more plain, where I could write a paragraph (sort of like the guest speaker form). I don't mind the Upcoming events area, but the days of the week don't make it very practical. I am looking into just sending a general monthly newsletter, and I can't find one form in the package that I can use for that. Thanks for your time.

Hi Roxana! Sorry - that is really all I have. I haven't had anyone else mention that the current template wouldn't work for them. I will keep that in mind the next time I do edits. Thanks so much!

Buyer re: Paisley Theme Customizable Book Basket Labels
Hi Charity,
I love these book basket labels. Unfortunately, I am unable to type in my own label like it said I would be. Also, when opening the file it states that the original has been changed. Will you please send me the file that allows me to add my own labels? Thanks so much.

Saralyn - Have you updated to the newest version of Adobe Reader and are you opening it in Adobe Reader? Some computers will open the files in Preview as a default. They will not work right in preview. I am thinking that might be the issue you are having.

Is this format compatible with a Mac? I am interested in the pack, but I just want to be sure before I purchase it. Thanks!

It was made on a mac. Plus, it is a pdf file. Pdfs work the same on any computer with Adobe Reader, so if you ever buy a pdf file, know it will work fine. :)
