Buyer re: August-June Calendar Journal
Do you think this will be too challenging for the beginning of the year for Kinders?
July 13, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Erin Sample
Erin Sample  (TpT Seller)
I think you would have to project the pages and write for the kids during a class discussion during calendar in order to model where to write the information. After they get the hang of calendar and the form, I think they could start to use them. I have had a lot of kinder teachers say they love them. I hope that helps.

Hi Erin! I just went to print your unit on Ben Franklin, and Adobe told me the file is corrupted! I tried downloading it on both my PC and Mac, but neither one worked. Could you check to see what's wrong? I'd really appreciate it! I need your great materials for next week!

Let me check. I used the unit last yet and didn't have that problem. Make sure you have the latest Adobe reader and are opening with Adobe on a Mac and not the default PDF viewer. Please try those solutions and email me at esample4@gmail.com if the problem is not fixed.

Hi Erin,

I love this fall math center pack and plan to use it next week. I noticed a couple of errors in some of the cards and was hoping you could fix them. The acorn cards 56 and 41 pictures do not match the number. Also there are four apple picking cards wear the sentence does not match the subtraction fact (10-4, 10-2, 10-5, 10-3). Thank you so much for your great pack and I look forward to using it wtih my kiddos.

You need to update Adobe reader. If you have a Mac and are using the default PDF viewer that could be a problem too. Customer service can walk you through the steps to fix it. There isn't anything wrong with the file. Hopefully that will help so you can still use it next year!

No, you're right. I don't think money is a CC standard. It's actually more awareness of it. We have to do something like, "if I have 20 cents and I buy two things, what could I have spent on each thing?" which is more part-part-whole relationships. Time would be amazing though! I'm in FL.

I used this last year when my students kept track of their own math tubs. I had 6 tubs numbered 1-6. The students would write which math tubs they went to each day. If we didn't have 3 rotations, then they would record an x in the third space. I didn't have as many students last year and they were very responsible. This year I keep a chart visible for math tub rotations since I have 29 kids and many with special needs. I liked this record sheet last year though!

Do you have a Mac? Many times, the Mac will open the file with their own PDF software and that for some reason messes with the file. If this may be the case, go into Adobe and open the file from within Adobe. That has usually fixed any problem. If that still doesn't work, please contact Tpt as they can help you further with any settings or issues that may be preventing you from printing. I hope that helps you get this resolved.
