Hello! I have a question about the "Question of the Day Kindergarten Edition." Weeks 15-31 are high frequency words. Do you have a list of the words you use? I just want to be sure that most of the words in the packet are words we use. Our district, for some reason, provides us with a list of words that don't seem to coordinate with the rest of nation. Ha ha! THANKS!

I was considering doing that, but was thinking I should wait until I had a larger amount of them finished…but I may consider going ahead and creating the bundle and then saying I will add "x" amount before summer's close for folks who want to go ahead and get the bundle, maybe at a lower price. Hmmm, opinions?

Hi I live in Australia so before purchasing I just need to ask if there are any measurement terms used in the text e.g. inches?
We are a metric country so I try to stay away from imperial measurements.
Also are there any references to USA locations?
No offence meant but I am really need to be sure that what I am buying is suitable for use in my classroom.

Hello, is there any way you can take a quick video and email of how to place the head on the little kindergarten graduation people? It looks like it has only one ear, is it meant to be copied twice and paste the two halves together to make a whole? I was able to put the rest together, feet, legs, hands, etc. this was my only question, thank you very much.

The straight edge is to be cut on a fold. Take your large, skin colored construction paper fold it in half(short and fat) and then cut the pattern out. Unfold and you have a the entire head =) Let me know if this still doesn't make sense and I will see what I can do.

Oh no! I just downloaded it myself to check it, but I think the quickest way to get a solution is to contact TPT, by first going to the FAQ's page amd then the "contact us" link at the top. Unfortunately, I don't have any way to helpo with downloading and printing issues. TPT is ususally very fast to answer. If they can't resolve the issue, let me know and I will definitely get you the pack! Thanks so much! Jennifer

Hi! I am looking through the Bright Ideas Blog Hop and came across your blog post about your unit on rocks. It looked like so much fun. I teach 2nd grade and we used to teach a rocks and minerals unit but unfortunately, the district is always changing our units.
I am wondering if there is any way you could/would sell me the part in your unit where the students did the art activity and created rocks, out of paper? All of my students received a Happy Rock at the beginning of the year to be used as a reminder that there's always something to be happy about. They tell their rock 3 happy thoughts everyday. I love the rocks your class made and thought it would be another activity to go along with what we already do.
Sorry for the super long message. I wanted to give you some insight to my question. Thanks for your time! Have a great rest of the weekend!

I have a couple of 2nd grade teachers in my building that got the pack and have been able to use most of it with their students. If you would like me to create a custom listing for you, just let me know =)

This is the third time I have asked for help. I will assume you did not get the other pleas for help. I purchased the Avery labels listed and they do not line up. Suggestions????
March 1, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
FirstGradeBlueSKies
FirstGradeBlueSKies  (TpT Seller)
Where have you asked? I just looked over all my Q&A's in my shop and on my two Banger sets and do not see anything from you before this.

I am sorry you are having issues. The first thing you need to verify is that you are using only the #5366 Labels (no other Avery Labels will work). I printed a new set for myself at the beginning of the school year and they printed fine, so maybe it has to do with the settings on your printer? Another thing to consider is to make sure you haven't opened the document up in "preview"…it has to be downloaded and saved first. Also here is a big tip for them:
*Important to note: When printing the phrases on the labels, make sure (especially with Mac) that when your print window comes up, that the "auto rotate and center" isn't checked and that the page scaling is: none. Otherwise they won't print correctly on the labels =)
If that doesn't help, let me know what they are doing, as in are they too far over to one side (left or right) and I will do my best to fix it for you =) Everyone else that has purchased the set hasn't had issues with the alignment, so maybe the tip above will fix it!! Hope so and let me know if it doesn't!! Thanks, Jennifer

Sure, I can customize it easily for something like that...as long as it would still be the same sort of format (2 sided, tri-fold, etc) Thanks for your interest! Jennifer

Hi there,

I purchased both sets of your Banger Fry Phrases Sticks. I love them! However, I only have the Avery 30 labels per sheet, which do not line up with your pdf. Can you send me the pdf as a editable word document so that I can make it match with the labels I have? Thank you!

Hi~ Unfortunately, I create my packs with Pages (on my Mac) and the ability to convert them and save them as .word docs is not always a success (for things to line up, etc) I am happy to attempt it and email it to you if you'd like to try and make it work, but I cannot make a guarantee that it will…I hope you understand. If it doesn't, then I encourage you to get the Avery Labels listed in the pack (Avery #5366 or Eco 48366) and it should work perfectly for you! (Don't forget to reply with your email if you'd like to try and convert it ) Thanks!!

Hi,
I'm trying to print the Froggy's FIrst Kiss packet that I just purchased. I can only print through "If Frogelina" tried to kiss me" and then it says insufficient memory and won't let me print the rest. I've tried picking small sections to print, and it won't let me. Do you have any suggestions? I really love this and need to use it soon!

Thanks,

Kristi Sparks

Oh no! I think the quickest way to get a solution is to contact TPT, by first going to the FAQ's page amd then the "contact us" link at the top. Unfortunately, I don't have any way to helpo with downloading and printing issues. TPT is ususally very fast to answer. If they can't resolve the issue, let me know! Thanks so much! Jennifer

Hi,
I just bought your holiday dice games. I want to purchase the new dice bundle but I see that it includes something I just bought. Is there a way for me to pay the difference from what I already paid? My students love the dice games and so do I. So easy to get out and hand them to my students. YOU ROCK! Thank you for your help.

The current price of the bundle is DEEPLY discounted for folks like you that have already bought (the also discounted) individual packs. The price of the bundle will probably (eventually) be $25. I did the sale this weekend so that you wouldn't feel like you were paying twice for the packs, I took almost the whole price of at least one of the packs that are already made off the price of the bundle until Monday….which means for your total of $12.50 you are getting 10 whole themed packs with 20 games in each. I am adding the Valentine's Day pack tomorrow and the Super Heroes pack probably next weekend. You can always contact me at: laughinbrunette@hotmail.com if you still need help and I am sure we can work something out =)

I've always just let the kids choose what they prefer, but you could make it mean something...I'd be happy to email you a revised glyph page with what you want it to stand for...you can email me at: laughinbrunette@hotmail.com if you do =)

Hi, I love the look of the Chinese New Year package. Are the art activites appropriate for Pre-K? Thanks!

I think the only way it would be ok to use would be if you pre-cut all the pieces ahead of time for the kids. The lantern is a lot easier than the dragon. The other option is to do just the dragon's head (I think it is in one of the pictures) to make the project have less steps. =) Hope that helps!

Your link on your blog for the 100th day Freebie took me to Tpt but it is not free.
