Hello,
I was happily downloading my way through the 2013 Winter Holidays Tips & Freebies post on the TPT Blog, but noticed that your posted freebie is no longer free. All the other freebies posted by other teachers are still free. I'd love to have your Snowy ABC Order for my 1st- & 2nd-grade special ed kiddos. Please advise...
Thanks,
Teresa

Hi Teresa, It was supposed to be free and it got caught up in my creating "Dollar Deals" and wasn't supposed to be. Thanks so much for bringing it to my attention. It is now listed as free again for you to download! Thanks So Much!

Hi Jessica,
The name plates are two per slide and they measure 11" across and 4 1/4" in height. I also have an editable slide that measures 8 1/2 x 11" for CCSS to be entered if you want that as well. If you purchase the product please feel free to contact me if you would like to have a custom slide made to go with the unit at fabulouslyfirst@aol.com.

Hi! I really like your Chevron Classroom set and I was wondering if the pieces in your set (the chevron in particular) are editable for color scheme. The chevron border I'm already using is gray, and the posters in my room are teal. Is it possible to adjust the color of the chevron if I buy the set? Thanks!
July 22, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Deb Thomas
Deb Thomas  (TpT Seller)
Hi Brandi, I am glad that you like the Chevron set but the pieces are not editable because when I finalize a project it becomes a secured PDF at the request of the graphics artists so that their graphics are safe and unable to be altered or removed. Thank you so much for asking and I hope you find the set that you are looking for in the colors that you need. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me.

Hey Deb,
I ordered all of your cute animal print editable things last year and was hoping to get the same type of things this year with your polka dots (black and white/brown and cream). Do you have any power points similar to the animal print styles for portrait, landscape, calendar numbers, and book bin labels that are editable for the polka dots?

There are 16 pairs of synonyms with a answer sheet in the packet. I recently made a correction on the recording sheet and uploaded it again to TpT.

Hi Deb,
I purchased this from TPT and I cannot get it to print. I also purchased your Octopus Home and it printed beautifully so I am not sure why this one won't work. Blank pages come out. My class loved the octopus game and I really wanted to purchase all the other vowel products you have but want to make sure they work first.
Thanks!

Hi Leslie, I have uploaded the Nine Ninja packet again to see if this will help. You can go to the "My Purchases" area on TpT and download the product again for free. If it doesn't print out this time try this: The black bars - These are showing up because
you do not have the most updated version of Adobe Reader installed on your computer or you have a Mac. If you go to your purchases page, you will see the word "blurry" flashing. There is a link there to download the newest version of Adobe for free. If you have a Mac, go to your downloads folder. Open your file with Adobe, not your default reader which is “Preview”. I have a Mac, so I have this issue also. If none of these things work is there another printer you can use to print it from? I hope one of these suggestions helps. If not TpT will need to be contacted so they can repair the download from their end. Please let me know how this goes so I can help you out! Thanks so much for your patience and I am so sorry you are having such a difficult time with this download. If all of these options fail I would open a support ticket with TpT at this URL: https://support.teacherspayteachers.com

Have you tried to re-download the purchase again? I know one thing that you can try and that is to make sure the adobe software you are using is up to date. If neither one of those work just email me at fabulouslyfirst@aol.com and I will send page 4 back to you and see if that helps.

If you go to your purchases page, you will see the word "blurry" flashing. There is a link there to download the newest version of Adobe for free. If this doesn't work go to your "My Purchases" and on the top right hand corner it says "Need Help?" "Download Difficulties" and it also says "If you are having a downloading issue. please do not leave poor feedback. It's not the seller's fault. We will solve it!" Contact them and they will take care of you from there and possibly email you the file.

I am so sorry but ActivInspire Flipcharts can't be imported into powerpoint or saved as a PDF. I tried to do it and could not get it to save in either format. It does state in the product description that it is an ActivInspire Flipchart and that the proper software is necessary to open it. I had to take screenshots of the product and the quality of the pages are compromised by placing it into PDF format. If you accept the compromised version in PDF format there can't be a refund. You should be receiving an email with the product sometime today.

Hello! I love this resource, I am deciding whether to buy first or kinder words for my lower first grade math groups. I was wondering if you would consider making coin words since they are a big part of first grade math. Just simple ones like penny, nickel, dime, quarter would be great!

When you make your purchase please let me know and I will email you two slides with the coins and coin words. I will need to know what name it was purchased with through paypal if different from the above name to verify the purchase. Please also leave me an email in which to send the slides to you. Since coins and coin words are not a part of the common core state standards I will not be adding them to the packet since I want the product to be representative of the new standards. If you would like to contact me via email please contact me at fabulouslyfirst@aol.com. Thank you very much and I look forward to hearing from you soon!!!

My name is Tammy Ferguson and I am new to teacherspayteachers. I am interested in how to get started with selling my ideas on this website.

Hi Tammy, I didn't purchase any software to start and just started with using powerpoint on my iMac. I watched a lot of tutorials to learn a few tricks and shortcuts. I just started myself at the end of January of this year and I have enjoyed every minute in being a part of TpT. Jump in and get started and get in with a group of teachers that are also blogging. I think the secret ingredient is having a blog to compliment your store. Good Luck and I am now following your TpT store.

I am planning to purchase your animal print calendar numbers and months, and was wondering if you had anything with these borders that could be used as a desk/locker nameplate. I would like to keep my labels consistent in the room, and was hoping you might have something like that. Also, I am currently using the 4 patterns you include and also use snake skin to differentiate my 5 pods, do you have anyway of creating nameplates or the book book bin labels in snake skin?

Hi Katie, You are very welcome for the collection of graphic resources. It was something I had to pretty much figure out on my own. If you are using My Cute Graphics just click on the background of the one you like and under the pic it will say "preview this background". Click on it and it makes it larger on your screen. I own a mac so I just take a screen shot and save it to my desktop to use on the cover page. If you are using PowerPoint I go to "insert" then "picture" and look for the graphic on my desktop and click on "insert". It will then ask you whether or not to apply or apply to all. When I get home this afternoon I will send you some websites that have video tutorials that will help you out a lot. I went to the TpT forums and presented questions and got some greaet help in there as well. Talk to you soon! Deb

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a teacher in both special and regular education since I graduated from College.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Definitely a "hands-on" approach with curriculum integration and differentiation as a focus because all children learn differently.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Nominated for "Teacher of the Year" two times for both regular and special education experience.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I acquired my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from a small private college in north Georgia. My Master's is in "Technology in Education" from Lesley University and my Specialist's Degree is in Curriculum and Instruction

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a Mom of four children and two grandchildren.
