Hello, First tap the spinner. When the spinner lands on a word family ,tap and drag (one motion)to the line below. Next have the children drag in the initial consonant from the juggling clown. see how many words they can make with that family. Go on to the next page and doo the same. When your done with the activity don't save the changes. The file will be ready to go for next time. I hope this helped, enjoy your activity.
I love this activity. It is fun and interactive.. I love the Smartboard.. I am a junior in the teaching program right now... I would have liked it to be a little bit more cutsie.. But that is just me. Great job!
This was really cute, but I found it difficult to use. Every time I clicked on "name" the raindrop faded away and I couldn't attach the name from my class. I ended up not using it because it was too frustrating.
I'm sorry you didn't use the file. The name were not attached to the drops. The students are to move their name to the present box on the bottom. If during editing the drops disappear just click on any page in the file and back and the drops will reappear. To edit the name just left click to show the edit box with the dots on two sides. You can backspace and type your students names. Let me know what happens.
Hi Alexis, Sorry to hear the file didn't work. Have you updated your smart board or program? Are you using Smart board Express? You can save the download in an older version format.
If you using a Promethean board you can convert your program with ActivInspire that comes with Promethean. Be sure when you download to add the correct drop-down format when you save file. There is also a You Tube Video on How to.. Let me know how you made out.
You can copy any text you like in smart notebook.Select work by scrolling over text. Copy the text and paste the text to a work area , change the spelling. Then paste over the text you would like to change and lock in place. I think this will work.

Can you explain how to use this? Is it interactive? Thanks
Hi there! I purchased your flower attendance file last week, and I've been unable to get the brown flower to fade out. I have followed the steps you have listed and tried it several times over. Has anyone else had this problem? I've used the fade out technique with other attendance boards so I have some experience. Just wondering if you had any ideas of a step I may be missing. Thanks in advance!
I know if you program the names and lock them down. The fade out on the brown flowers will work better. I will upload an update to the file in case something happen to the program. Let me know. I can email you a copy too just send a message and include the email, This should work.Thanks

Is there a way to see a preview? I downloaded the one on the site but it was just a picture.
I am still having difficulty programming the leaves. I am able to add the names now however I am having trouble with the animation now. This is not what I expected. I wanted to use this attendance for the month of November and it is almost half over at this point. Is it possible to get a refund or purchase a different attendance file that is not as troublesome. I appreciate your help.
The animation will work correctly after you program the names and LOCK the names down. The edit space is large on the unlocked objects. I sorry you are having a hard time I will give you a refund. Have a nice day.
Hi I also recently purchased your Giving Thanks attendance and am following your directions however it is not working. When I drag the name off the leaf and double click as your directions state the word name disappears. Please help - I also am eager to use this file.
Are you opening the program with smart notebook and not express? I tested the download and it is working OK. Nov 3 did you get the file to work?
I can send out an update ? Please let me know. Thanks

dawnhebert re: Smartboard Attendance-Animated Pumpkin Patch-Fall Season
I have been trying without success. I right clicked the leaf and sent backward but I am having a hard time with the cloning. The whole page is cloning. I know it would probably be easy for you to add a couple more for me. Would you mind doing that? We have 27 children in the class. If you send me an updated file, do I just download it again? I really appreciate your help.
I will make an upgrade for you to download with 27 students.

How can I add more pumpkins to the page. THis is new to me and I'm having difficulty. I've tried copy and paste but when I paste, a leaf appears instead of a pumpkin. We have 27 children in our class so I need more pumpkins. Thank you.
The leaf is on top of the pumpkin so change the order. Right click the leaf and send backward. The pumpkin should be on top. Clone the pumpkin then a name and then clone a new leaf. If your still having problems I'll make a file with the correct amount you need and send it to you as an update for all or send me your email and I'll send it that way. Let me know. I know it's almost Halloween and you'll want to use your attendance ASAP. Let me know if I can help.

Kim Baross (TpT Seller) re: Magic Apples Attendance for Smartboard
I set up my class but accidentally bumped an apple and it keeps staying red. Is there a way for me to add another apple that will turn red when it is touched. I can't seem to figure it out. Thanks! I love this and can't wait to have the kids use it tomorrow!
When you go to another page in doc and back to the page it should be reset. If that doesn't work. Unlock a name move the name off the apple
Nextleft click an apple and unlock. When it's highlighted clone and the move over the apple. If that doesn't work you can send me an email. I'll fix it and send it back. HDowstracox@comcast.net. Just let me know.

The preview only shows a teaching guide. Does this unit come with chapter comprehension questions, vocabulary activities, and writing prompts?
