Thanks for the suggestion about limiting the background color. I'll keep that in mind. I'm not sure (with a PDF) if you can select to not print the background like you can on MSWord. I will try to redo when I get a chance. I've gotten behind this month since my mom passed away last month. I'll let you know if I am able to redo it! But thanks for the feedback! Darcy

Buyer re: QR Codes - Dolphin Cards for Student Numbers
Hi Darcy
Can you explain what QR codes are and what the bar codes to scan on iPhone are for? Are the dolphin cards to be printed with numbers on them? I'm a bit confused but very interested.
August 18, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Darcy Jones  (TpT Seller)
QR codes are like a logo but they have information connected to it. You can only see the information when you scan the code. The dolphin cards have one number per card. This number would represent the student's ID (1-30). What's cool about it is that you could pull out 2 of the cards to be partners and the kids couldn't pick specific partners because all of the codes look the same. In my Getting to Know You activity, when you scan the codes, each one asks a different question that your class could use for morning meeting or community building activity (such as would you rather build a snowman or a sand castle?). You can see QR codes in magazines too. These usually are connected to a website for the product, it is like another way to advertise. Try to scan one in a magazine with your phone. Your phone needs to have a camera and you need a bar code scanner app on it. That might help you to understand a bit better. Hope this helps! 8-) Darcy

Buyer re: SMARTBoard Attendance - Ladybug Spots
Hi I purchased the Ladybug Spots attendance and was wondering if it would be possible to send me a file with 11 boys and 13 girls. I am new with the smartboard and editing the files therefore is taking me a long time to clone and figure out the ladybug behind the boy and girl so it would be extremely helpful if you could adjust that for me. My email is mtfc@optonline.net. Thank you in advance for your help.

Darcy Jones  (TpT Seller)
I am so sorry - I read this question when you first sent it, but then I totally forgot about it! I'm not sure I understand your problem. If you want to clone one of the graphics, you can right click on the image. The ladybugs don't change or matter as far as boy or girl goes. You will first need to resize the icons since you need 24 and it only shows 22. I suggest resizing them and cloning them based the amount you need of each boy and girl. Since you need a few more icons, every icon won't have a lady bug behind it, so you will be able to rearrange them anyway you want. I'm currently taking three classes this summer and my days are wicked crazy. I made myself a note about this, if I find some time I will redo it for you. Try those suggestions first and see how it goes. I think once you get comfortable with all of the SB skills, you'll be fine!

Thank you,

Darcy Jones  (TpT Seller)
Hey Brenda! You should be able to download the Notebook software from SMART and it will run with your interwrite pad. My school was one of the last ones to get a smartboard, and we used to use the notebook software with our interwrite pads. They will just have to use your interwrite pad to drag the icons instead of doing it on the smartboard. Other than that, you should be fine. Thanks for your purchase! Darcy

I'm trying to remember when someone else had that problem. I want to say I think it is a Mac vs PC thing. Have you tried it on a PC yet? I'm thinking that you might have to edit on a PC, but will be able to use on Mac. I have never used a Mac, so I am shooting in the dark on this one. I know it can be frustrating, I am having a few issues between my iPad and PC. Technology needs to be device friendly! Hope you get it worked out! My students love the snow penguins! Darcy

Hey Cara! No, questions are fine! I am not sure if my answer will be the best, but I can tell you how I do it. I know that there are several ways to do it, and I think it is just personal choice which way you do it. I actually start by drawing on my iPad using Sketchbook Pro (which I think is on sale for 2.99 now, normally 4.99). Then I email it to myself and open it up on my laptop. Then I use Gimp software (free) in order to take away the background. Then I can change formats with Microsoft Picture Manager into jpeg, gif, or png. Hope that helps! It is fun to do! I'm not that good at drawing but I like to make graphics to use with my students to show them anyone can be an artist. Good luck! I believe there a few tutorials on YouTube as well.

Darcy Jones  (TpT Seller)
Hey Laura - thanks for asking. My kindergarten friend says this to me all of the time! I'm trying to think of the easiest way...I think I would delete all of the eggs but one. Then you will need to unlock the chicks. After being unlocked, highlight all of the chicks (cntrl/click) and then group, then resize your chicks, ungroup and move to where you want,clone a few, then lock and save. Then I would resize the egg and write one name on it, group, then copy and paste. I think that would be easier - all you would have to do is ungroup and retype name, and regroup when done. Do the animation after you have locked down all chicks, and copied all of the eggs you need, and grouped the eggs witht he names. I hope this makes sense! Let me know if it doesn't and I'll try it another way. Thanks! Darcy
