I'm sorry that you are having trouble. Let's see if we can work it out for you. First of all I'm not sure if I understand you do you have a true SMARTBOARD? If not that could be the problem. Can you touch anywhere on the board to make interaction happen? You said you bought your Koosh ball from Amazon. Are the the supper soft kind that when you squeeze it the ball looks like a balloon? You can usually this type of ball at Target for a dollar. You can email me at cssmartietech@gmail.com

Hi, just wanted to help. If you convert the Smartboard to PDF. Then you can convert the PDF to Promethean Board. You can use Promethean Board on Smartboard, however, Smartboard blocks puts a watermark on the Smartboard lesson if used on a Promethean Board. They just started this this past year.

Sorry you are having trouble with this lesson.

First of all are you using this lesson on a SMARTBoard or on a different Whiteboard? If it is a SMARTBoard touch right beside the vowel of the letter chunks to make the letter appear. The letter should come right up.

Have you tried it using the curser on your computer?

I am going to put in a ticket to TPT for you to see if they have any additional ideas.

Also if you do not have SMARTBoard let me know and I would be happy to send you the PowerPoint lesson that would work better for non SMARTBoard users. My email is cssmartietech@gmail.com

First of all I let my first graders through the Koosh ball themselves. (That is half the fun.) I encourage them to not slam the ball at the SMARTBoard, the board will not respond. They need to through it so it makes firm contact with the board. It might take a few tries at first but they adjust their throughs pretty quickly.

You might want to tell the kids to through the Koosh ball so it kisses the board. That sometimes help.

If you need more help let me know.

The free fact family you have to put your own numbers in. This one has all the fact families already typed in for you.

Thanks for the heads up on my description.

As for the adding slides, left click on the snowman slide then right click on the same slide and click on Clone Page (for SMARTBoard) or Duplicate Slide (Power Point). You can clone or duplicate the slide as many times as you wish. Finally all you need to do is type in your own problem (SMARTBoard) or add a Text Box and type in your problem. You might want to lock the problem down (SMARTBoard) so it does not move on your students. Let me know if you need any additional instructions.

Not all my lessons are for SMARTBoard (Notebook). I do offer some of my lessons in Power Point. However for this lesson you have to have a SMARTBoard.

I have a trouble-shooting question. When we played the game there were a couple of issues....first, the same questions kept popping up. Then the screen would freeze and not return to the candy page. When it did return to the candy page, the koosh ball would not always trigger the question to pop up...I had to manually do it. Any thoughts?

First let me say I'm sorry you are having trouble with the lesson.

I used this lesson with my class just before break and it worked fine. The only time the same question popped up was when the students kept hitting the same place on the board. I had to encourage them to aim for a different section. Are you using Notebook 11 and are you using a soft squishy koosh ball? Another problem could be if you have other programs running in the background. My tech person says Notebook is a big hog on memory. If you have other things running it slows Notebook down. Sometimes if a teacher starts to have problems with Notebook not working right we have to restart their computer to correct the problem. If these suggestions don’t work on your school computer let me know. I can send you the program to you through email to see if it could be a download problem.
Please let me know if you cannot get the game to work properly. I would like to make it right by you by offering you a different game.

My email is cssmartietech@gmail.com.

Sara Marchesani  (TpT Seller) re: Gingerbread Fun Addition Using Ten Frames A SMARTBoard Lesson
Hi Christi - I wanted to tell you how cute this is! I don't have a smart board, so I copied your idea for my promethean board! I made a few other activities to go with the gingerbread theme and the mental math strategy of making ten. You might enjoy them to accompany your smartboard lesson! I am going to upload them to my store - Sara Marchesani. I will not upload my promethean activity, since the idea is not originally from me. However, your smart board lesson really does go great with what I will put up, and I think people would like the two resources to go hand-in-hand. Do you mind if I advertise for you? Can I put your name and this lesson title in my packet, encouraging people to come buy your smart board activity? I will do it, and you can let me know if you object :-) Thanks for sharing great ideas! ~ Sara

You can lock the clip art down along with any print that does not need to have animation attached to it or that does not need to be moved. However anything that needs to be made interactive cannot be locked down. I hope this makes sense.

Here are the directions to lock down clip art.

You can contact me at cssmartietech@gmail.com if you have any other questions.

Just remember SMARTBoard lessons are great because they are interactive. Many of us who make SMARTBoard lesson don't worry about people changing our work to suit their needs. That is why I make my Koosh Ball games an open template. Each teacher adds the class work they want their students to work on.

Hi Dianne,

I'm glad you like the lesson.

I have given directions on how to use this lesson at the beginning of each section. You can find the directions on the following slides: 2, 33, 64 and 108.

I hope this helps.

Let me know if you need any more help.

This is a notebook lesson not a power point lesson. Do you have a SMARTBoard?

Hum, well first of all this is a notebook lesson. Do you have notebook? If you do make sure the file says .notebook. If it says .zip highlight zip and change it to notebook. That should do the trick. If you don't have notebook contact TPT and exchange the lesson for the Power Point version.

I do not see any letters to click and drag. I am not using my smart board, I am at home.
Is this why I do not see any letters?

Ok I'm sorry I tried to answer your question while I was away from my computer. I just brought up the lesson on my computer. What you want to do is click and drag the box to the right. Then click on the beginning letter and drag it to the right. Keep doing this until you have shown all of the beginning letters. Once again do not save when you are done with the lesson.

Even though I was able to open the file in smartboard notebook, my board is an activboard with promethean planet. I bet I have to use the pen . It doesn't have touch activation. I guess I should have thought of that. I hope I can still use it even if I must use the pen.

Yes you will need to use your pen.
You could have your student use a ball that sticks to the wall. They could throw the ball then use the pen to open the page. Just a suggestion.

Hi Mary Jane,

I'm sorry you are having problems. Tell me what you mean by forward the page. Do you mean touching the blue arrows?

Will the page open if you touch the SMARTBoard with your finger?

What kind of a koosh ball are you using? You need to use a soft squishy koosh ball. They cost about $1 at Target or Meijer’s. If you are using a harder ball it will not work.

The game is working on my computer. So if none of these suggestions solve your problem. Or if you want me to send you a picture of the kind of koosh ball you need. Send me an email at cssmartietech@gmail.com and I will either send you the game again or send you a picture.

I will do everything I can to help you make the game work. :)

Tania,

Did you get it working? I did not hear back from you and I want to make sure it downloaded correctly.

Christi

Hi,
Sorry for your trouble. I'm able to open the file here at home. However I can not get into the site at this time. They have it shut down to sellers so buyers can download. I'm not sure why it is saying that. It was made on Notebook 10.6 but like you I have Notebook 11. Would you mind looking at the file to make sure the end says .notebook sometimes the file can chage to .zip If that happened all you have to do is change it back to .notebook. If that does not work let me know by emailing me at cssmartietech.gmail.com and I will send it to you through email.
