Dear Charity,

I would like to say that we are very impressed with your materials and the thought and time that has obviously been put into creating and designing them.

We are a a small K-12 American Bilingual School in Kuwait and are changing over to AERO Common Core in the upcoming year. Thus, we are looking for some ready-made materials to assist our teachers in the transition and feel yours are the most suitable.

I would like to confirm that if we purchase any items, including the CCSS Ultimate Planning Packs for K-5 (stated that they come on CD's in the mail on Preston Education Publishing), that you will be able to send it via soft copy. I.E. Uploaded onto Google Drive or similar. If so, which sight can we purchase from and can we use a credit card?

Regards,

Mrs. Kenya Purcell
Superintendent

Thanks for the answer, Charity. Just a suggestion, it would be nice to have the email text box work like the headline text box on the 'Meet Miss...' Page. It adjusts to fit the length of the text. I am sure I am not the only one with a long email address. Thanks for all you do!

It already adjusts as it is added into - I am wondering if the Adobe it is being opened in is not the most recent? Honestly - no one has ever had an issue with it? I can't change it without basically re-creating the entire document as there are about 4 different layers of materials, with embedded clip art, then added layers of text boxes and text over that. I am just not able to recreate the entire thing at this time.

Help! I thought I was purchasing the set with the common core check off and the I can statements for each grade in the set. But once I downloaded, I think I purchased the wrong set. I have the essentials set which is cute but I really didn't want this. I've only purchased a few things on TPT and don't really know my way around yet. Is there a way to exchange, or am I just stuck and need to find the correct product now?

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!

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.

Do you have plans to create a student learning scale to correspond with your Hollywood Themed CCS "I Can" pages? I found a similar scale for what I am looking for...but there aren't any Hollywood Themed scales available.

Thank you! :)

I don't at this time. I am leaving the assessments up to others - and actually won't look at other sellers' products because I feel like that would be a copyright infringement - even if it is a different theme. Sorry!

I really like your round posters. I want to make it smaller so that I put it in my students interactive notebook. Do you have those in a word document so that I can print them side by side and put several on a page?

Sorry - nothing can be sold as a Word doc due to the clip artists copyright restrictions (I don't care to be sued). But your printer should be able to print up to several slides on one page which will do what you are looking to do.

Good Morning! I am looking for a reading certificate with a monster theme to use in my Library Media Center this year. I see this kit contains reading certificates and I didn't want to watch the 15 minute video with the beach theme LOL! Is there one in the pack that addresses reading? I wanted to know before I spent $15 because I really don't need everything else. However, I might like it and want to use it?! Is there any kind of preview so I can see if it is cute?

Hi Charity, I bought your hollywood theme teacher binder set and had no trouble downloading opening and printing. Unfortunately I didnt print everything and now it wont open. It keeps coming up with a microsoft word error saying parts are unreadable. Any suggestions? Thanks Kelly Pacheco

Hi Kelly! I would say to make sure your Adobe Reader is updated fully, and then re-download again from here at TpT. If it still won't work, maybe try the Tech Help desk here at at TpT (because that is where the file is store - on their servers), so maybe they can help out more. I am sure you will get it fixed up. Thanks so much!

Make sure you have the most updated version of Adobe Reader installed and then download from TpT again. Sounds like a glitch on your end.

HI! I purchased you parent handbook and your personal calendar but I can only seem to edit the first page and the year at the bottom of each page. I opened it both in PDF and Adobe reader. Would you be able to send it to me in a word document? or do you have any other suggestions??

Thanks - Alexandrea

Hi Alexandrea! It is not available as a Word item at all due to copyright restrictions. It sounds lie maybe you don't have the most recently updated version of Adobe Reader. I haven't had anyone else mention that the documents are working. If I created it in something newer than you are using, it won't work right. Thanks!

You can change anything within the form fields. Just make sure you open the file in Adobe Reader (not in preview) and you will see the blue fields. All headings are not able to be edited though and will remain static.

Hello Charity,

Thank you very much for this Hollywood Theme of helpful time saving resources. I just purchased the theme pack today for the current school year 2013/2014. Is it possible for you to provide me with a calendar for 2014? You're pack has calendars for 2012/2013.
Thank you in advance,
Cassandra

Hi Cassandra! Actually, I have removed all dated materials from the packs (sorry if you got one by accident) as it was too hard to continually update for everyone in different parts of the world. All the calendars are now a separate product, which can be found here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Hollywood-Themed-2013-2014-Personal-Planning-Calendar-711909

I purchased your Black & White Theme Teacher Essentials Pack, I am wanting to use the student folder labels but I can't seem to edit (I really want an ELA folder) I had also wanted to put the students name on their take home folder and then use the Leave Home and Bring back to school labels inside. Any help is greatly appreciated! I am a big fan!!

Maybe try the book basket labels and type in what you need?

Sorry! They are 2 separate products, so it doesn't work in the system that way. I would say to go with the digital versions for access right away. :)

I bought this product from you last year! Do you sell anything that includes second grade social studies and science standards? Thanks!

Not at this time. There are not a set of SS or Science standards right now that are national. All are by states still. If, and when, they are released, I will add a product to accommodate that.
