I love these labels and the graphics; however, I have my tubs labeled by the individual themes. Is there any way you can make a set that has the topic & pictures that correspond to it instead of using the Months at the top? I would be willing to purchase them. Thanks, Stephanie

Buyer re: Context Clues using Picture Books (Part 1)
I read through all the ratings, to see if it is appropriate to 4th grade level but I only noticed a few who said it was great for their first graders. So, is this truly a good fit for fourth graders? I don't want it to be too juvenile for them. If it is, they'll say they are being treated like 'babies' and resist the lesson.

I see you said you're redoing this-do you know when the new version will be available? I was looking for a few additional editables as well as a few other labels (ex: "holidays", "land animals", "ocean animails".

Thanks and great work-one of the best ones I've seen while searching! Can't wait to use them!

Thanks so much for your response. I followed your directions, and Ashleigh's as well, and downloaded the most current version of Adobe Reader. I tried quitting preview, but if I quit preview, I cannot view document. If I click on file, there is no choice for open with - only open. I'm really trying to figure this out! Do you have any other suggestions, or can it be emailed in any other format? Thanks again for your help.

I'm emailing you the files now. You should know that if you're using a Mac, you need to open the files instead of using preview. That should eliminate any smudges or missing words. Also, check to make sure you're using the most current version of Adobe Acrobat. Check out my post on my blog for more info...

Hello- I love your blue and green polka dot library labels. I was wondering if you could email me a copy of 1 green and 1 blue label with just the border, so that I can add a couple of my own to go along with your set. If not, could you tell me where you got the border so that I could make the blank versions myself? Thank you! Love these library labels!

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Yippee! Yay! Classroom Cheers
I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a positive rating. Since you are new to the TPT world, here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.

First, make a cover page for EVERY product you create which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers even if it is a one page item. Add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page. List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.

Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Here is how you do that. Use the insert and go to the right. You should see symbols there. Insert the copyright symbol, your name and date. It should look something like this: © V. Rauch (Scipi), 2011

Add some clipart to add color or just color some of your font. For some reason buyers like color on the original even though they may copy your product in black and white. Also, number your pages.

It is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below to gather some ideas. If you care to, a rating or any feedback you might have would be great.
