Please help.

Hi Ana,

Thanks for your purchase! If you will go ahead and scroll through, you will see the "clean" copy a dew pages back, after the "preview" page. This is from the way I do my product thumbnails, so both pages are in the download. Keep looking a few pages down and see if you see it. If not, feel free to let me know! Thanks!

Hey Trish,

Sorry for the late response. Hope you got it figured out by now, but if not, here are some suggestions:
-Have you downloaded the latest version of Adobe?
-Are you using a Mac or PC? Sometimes the files don't load correctly on Mac.
-If nothing else, go to your "my downloads" page and look in the top right corner for technical help from TpT.

Thanks!

Hi There!

Thanks for your purchase. Please scroll through the pages to find the "clean" copy. The first set is the example "sample" page because of the thumbnail upload, however, the next copy is the one without the red box. Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. Happy Holidays!

They are not, however I run mine off on a black and white printer, then run them through a black and white copier for my class copies, and the pictures all seem to work just fine-- still viewable and the kiddos are able to tell what they are!

Hi There,

To solve your problem, first try to download the latest Adobe software. If that still doesn't work, click on "My TpT" and "My Purchases". In the top right corner, there is a place to click for TpT technical help! Hope you can download the actual file real soon! Thanks for your purchase.

Hi Jannic,

I'm so glad you like the activities I've posted on TpT. I'd love for you to purchase them to use in your classroom! I personally do not know how to translate into French, however, if you do, just let me know and I'm sure we can work out some kind of system.

You can email me at JustTinkerinAround(at)yahoo(dot)com so we can further discuss how this can work. Perhaps once you purchase the file, I can send you it in another form (non-PDF), so you can edit the headers and/or instructions. Let me know if this would work for you.

Thanks! Chat with you soon,
Jillian

Hi There!

I'm so sorry you're experiencing some technical difficulties...I'm sure that's no fun! If you wouldn't mind trying 2 things, and then if those don't work, I'll give you one more suggestion! First, make sure you have the latest Adobe viewer. I know sometimes certain files don't work well if you have an older version. Also, if you're on a Mac, try a PC. Also, it is sometimes finicky :) Finally, try scrolling all the way through to see the other pages. Some pages are "watermarked" with the red stamp, however, the other clean copies are in there too!

If that doesn't work, click up top under "My Purchases". On the top right corner, there's a box where you can contact TpT team and they can help further. Please let me know if you're still having problems later, and hopefully we can find a way to help. Thanks!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello Teachers! My name is Jillian, and I'm a 2nd grade teacher. I have been teaching 2nd grade for 4 years now. Before that, I've been a tutor, a substitute teacher, and a student myself! I love the classroom, and I love playing around on the computer. Creating useful tools is a knack that I have fallen into, and I might add-- it's rather fun! :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

Fun with boundaries! I'm sure after my team reads that, they'll disagree...somehow I've been tagged as the most strict in 2nd grade. I do, however, love my kiddos and love to have a good time! I enjoy everyday, and try to have fun in all lessons I teach!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Yet to be added

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (just a fancy name for Education!) from the University of North Texas in 2009. I came back to my home town afterwards, and I've been teaching here ever since!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Not only can tinkering around be fun....it can also help create useful items in the classroom! Thank you to Kevin and Amanda's for some of their free font downloads!
