I just bought some of your label packets but unfortunately I cannot open the safari animal one. It seems like it is damaged? This is what my computer told me. Could you email it to me or what do I have to 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!

Hi~ Sounds like you are doing a greta job with rocks in your classroom! I guess I could create a custom listing for just the craft, but my crafts are usually at least $3 to $3.50…and the pack is one sale for $5 right now. 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 =)

I purchased your Chicken Little unit. When I printed the Venn Diagram with the Traditional Chicken Little on one side and the Modern Chicken Little on the other side, the words Chicken Little printed in a black square. I tried it several times and I keep getting the same result. Is there any way you can send me this Venn Diagram again? Or do you know any way I can fix this? I not as computer savvy as I would like to be so I am not sure what I can do to fix it. Thank you and thank you so much for sharing your work. Melissa

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????

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

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!!

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 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!

They are from a second grade Dolch sight word list, but I am thinking about adding a second set to the pack with second grade Fry words. Hope that helps!

Candace S. re: Custom Themed Brochure for Back to School
Hi!!! I love this and I want to purchase but I'm still not a hundred percent sure I understand. Do I purchase the license first and then send you my information? Is there a way to see it layout and themes before purchase and how fast can you finish the brochures? I have open house this upcoming Friday and I''m sure your super busy this time of year. Thank you I know that was a lot to answer. :)

I don't need a back to school packet (we already started school!) but I would love your "How do you get to school chart" for a class activity. Is it possible to just buy that portion from you?

I have gotten many of your packets and they are fabulous! Thanks!


Update: thanks so much for the quick response! I actually ended up just buying the packet because it had a lot I could use in the first few weeks :)

The wonderful world of 1st grade!!
I just found out two days ago that I have been reassigned to first grade. I have only taught upper grades (4 and 5) for 25 years!!! Needless to say, I am scared to death. I don't have a clue how to teach a child HOW to read among other things. I have no resources.........................ofcourse, I've spent thousands on upper elementary resources over the years.
As soon as I found out, you popped in my mind because I have read and seen so much about you on TPT. You seem to be the "cream of the crop" for primary grades!! I wish I could pick your brain!!!

Anyway..............I am in need of some structure for both Reading and Math Workshop. Do you have any idea where I could buy entire year plans for Grade 1? They would be a gold mine.......more like a security blanket for me. I would not follow them word for word........in Virginia we have SOL's, not Common Core standards. I just don't want to spend WEEKS writing plans from scratch when I need to be doing more creative things, like making centers. I bought The Daily 5 hoping I can get a feel for what's ahead.

I wasn't this scared the first day I ever taught and I even had a Vietnamese child who could not speak English!!! Any ideas would be a treasure for me.

Miki M. re: Question of the Day for Kindergarten
I have been asked to rate my purchase, and want to give it a fair response. However, I have e-mailed you once already and have not heard back. I bought one of your products for $7 and could not print it because it was secured and not able to be printed through our district print shop. In my previous e-mail, I had requested that you send me the non-secure document so that I could print, otherwise I would like a return on my purchase.

Thank you~

Hi Ms Montgomery! I am not sure what has happened, but I have not received an email about this (perhaps it went to junkmail) but I am more than happy to work with you so that the issue can be resolved. None of my documents are secured, except for the clipart used on some packs being secured so people cannot right click and copy them or text. I have had many of these packs purchased and printed by other teachers, so maybe it is an issue with the download. I always suggest contacting the help link at the bottom of TPT and they can help you through that process (I don't have any control over downloading issues). I am assuming the your district print shop is only printing one copy for you, so I have no idea why it wouldn't be able to print it, unless they were trying to copy the materials before they print it (like to change the format or spacing). If the problem cannot be resolved by TPT, please leave your email here or email me at: laughinbrunette@hotmail.com and I will to whatever I can to resolve the issue myself. Again, I am sorry to hear you have had such troubles, but I can assure you, I never ignore requests! Thanks so much for understanding and I hope it is resolved soon! Jennifer

Yes, all you have to do is go to your purchases page (or product page) and click on the buy additional licenses, and change the number to two...that way it equals the amount of a new brochure =)
Let me know if that doesn't make sense! Jennifer

Love the brochure! If I were to purchase today (8/7) how soon would you be able to finish it? I understand this is probably a busy time for you! I have open house next week, so just want to make sure I would have it in time.

i purchased your back to school for 2 weeks packet but I am unable to save it. It requires a password. Can you change it, so that I can send the document to be printed.

Thank You

It shouldn't need a password and the pack has been downloaded and saved/printed many times, I promise!! =) I think the best thing to do (since I don't have any control over downloads) is to contact TPT with the contact us link at the bottom of the site and fill out a ticket. They will contact you asap and should be able to resolve the issue you are having. Let me know if they cannot resolve the issue and I will figure something out for you! Jennifer
