I just purchased your October Busy Work Bundle. I printed out the page that has the vampires with the sight words. When I print out this page, the sight words in the Color Codes box do not print out, they get cut off. I only see the last one or two letters of each word. Is there any way you can move the box over to the right just a bit? Thanks so much!

Hi Karen,
I moved the color code box over to the right. The file has been updated so you can re-download. Just in case it's still not over far enough--in your print dialog box, under "size", click on "shrink oversized pages". Please let me know if you still have problems with printing. Thank you! Tanya :)

Hello. I would like to receive your busy Work bundle 10 months for First Grade. I am working in a very tough school in Detroit, and finances are limited. Would you be willing to donate or offer the first grade 10 month bundle for a discount? Please let me know.....these packets look great! Thank you in advance.

Hello Stephanie,
Thank you for your interest in my Busy Work Bundle. I can relate, as I teach in an inner city school with limited resources too. Please consider following my store, as I hold sales frequently, and that is the best time to purchase a pack as large as this bundle. Also, if you don't already, please follow my blog at http://firstgradeisfantabulous.blogspot.com I frequently host giveaways and freebies there. In fact, I just gave away two of my bundles on Friday as a giveaway on my blog. {I will be having a sale Sept. 6-9}. :)

You could try to delete the file, then re-download. Make sure the PDF file is open, and not in preview, then try to print it again.

Is there an update regarding the shading in the text box/bottom of the cards?
March 7, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
First Grade is Fantabulous
Yes, the file has been updated, slides 20-29 are duplicates of the NWF cards, but they have transparent text boxes. If you don't want shading, skip slides 5-14.

Hi, it's mostly in the text box. The elephants and cats seem to be okay.
February 25, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
First Grade is Fantabulous
Ok, it's the text box transparency. To have the text readable on top of the graphic, the text box is slightly shaded. I'll see if I can make some changes to improve the appearance of the shading. If possible, I'll try to get it loaded in the next 24-48 hours.

You can try to delete the file, then go to "my purchases" at the top of the screen to re-download it. If you continue to have problems with the file, try these steps: "If you purchased a PDF and it is blurry after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry, that's because you are still opening it with Preview!"

Hello, This is a common problem if your adobe is not the most current version. Here's TpT's answer to fix: If you purchased a PDF and it is after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry, that's because you are still opening it with Preview!

Hi Jessicacallahanclark, I don't have a way to credit from my end. You can contact TpT and tell them you accidentally doubled. From my end, I could send you a different game for the same $3.00 value. You can reach me at fantabulous1stgr@aol.com and let me know what you would like if you choose that route. Thank you! Tanya ☺

You may want to consider adding a video portion to this unit. The Curious George episode "George Digs Worms" from the PBS DVD Curious George Goes Green! (available at Target for $5) fits this unit well. It has an additional science experiment tie in as well. Just a thought. Thank you so much for all the hard work you did! Virginia

I would be interested in using some of your materials on my website universalhomeschool.com (this website is due to be released in August 2011). The site will mainly focus on teaching videos for children who are being homeschooled, or need the extra help. We will offer math, reading and writing. I started building this site about a year ago and during this time I have been creating videos, quizzes, worksheets and lesson plans. I originally wanted a site that would be available for free to parents and teachers. Unfortunately because of the cost of the hosting, development, materials, and other overheads having a free site would be impossible so I will be charging a yearly fee to have access to the site. This will be anywhere between $30 and $50.
Therefore I am asking you for permission to use your work on my website. I will pay for your materials, give you the credit, create a link to your page and give you free membership.
If you are not interested, that is fine I understand. Let me know if you would like to discuss another agreement.
Thanks

Hello,
I had another person email me about that too. They also have a Mac. Someone posted a fix for this on my blog, here's what they said: You need to have Adobe 10 and/or make sure you are not opening it in Preview. Be sure it is always opening up in Adobe. You can get Adobe 10 free from their website. I use a PC, so I'm not able to confirm that this works. But it's worth a try. Also, if you email me, I could try to email you a copy of the file, however, I tried that for another Mac user and she had the same problem with the emailed file as she did with the download. Hope this helps. My email is fantabulous1stgr@aol.com
