Hi -2 questions, please. 1. Do you have one package that has both manuscript and cursive? 2. Do you know if the cursive is compatible with the Zaner-Bloser program?
Thank you.

Hi Karen,
I'm looking to join or create a local TPT group (Thurston County perhaps) for support, coffee, networking, etc.) I live in the Olympia area. Do you know of a group or would you be interested?
Have a great year!

Hi! Have you seen the thread on the TPT seller forum about trying to arrange meet and greets for sellers by state? We only have 2 for WA so far, but I know there are many great sellers out there. We'd love to have you join us! http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=246293#p246293
I was thinking maybe OR & WA could combine?

Thank YOU, Erin! I am always open to suggestions, so feel free to suggest away. I think this is such a fun and engaging way to practice skills, as opposed to worksheets. If you are ever looking for a particular concept, just let me know.

Karen, I purchased your contraction surgery unit a few weeks ago. I love the product, but I am unable to show the powerpoint. I downloaded the viewer, but I can only go a few pages before it freezes up. Do you have any suggestions?

Denise,

That is odd. What version of ppt are you using? 2008, 2012? Contact me on my email coolschoolwithkaren@gmail.com, and we will figure this out. Also, does the file say .pptx? You might also want to go to the Microsoft sit and download the 60day trial. No credit card info is needed. After 60 days, you won't be able to create or edit pptx, but you will still be Abe to use it to show pptx.

Candi B. re: Contraction Surgery -- Contraction General Hospital
I bought your powerpoint about contractions and love it! I was wondering if the powerpoint could include some of the other contractions like is, are, and will?
March 4, 2013 Report inappropriate comment

Karen Harris  (TpT Seller)
I'm so glad you like the PowerPoint! A Sequel to Contraction General Hospital is on my To-Do list. In the meantime, you should check-out my Rainbow Contractions PPT. It covers other contractions, and also allows you to personalize the activity with your students' names. My students love this one, too.

Be sure to become a follower of my store. I will be having some big giveaways soon, and will be adding some really fun items in the near future.

Thanks, again, for your support of my store.

Buyer re: Cupcakes_From Data Table to Graph Interactive PowerPoint Lesson
I like your Smarty Pants Bingo, I bought it and plan to use it with my third graders this year. Do you have other MPS products that are for sale? I am also a teacher in WA.

I have taught first and second grade for years. Last year I moved to third grade and did not realize the pressure that is put on the 3,4,5th grade teachers to pass he big test!!
I like your cursive desktags and plan to buy them, too.

Karen Harris  (TpT Seller)
I am putting the finishing touches on several projects. Let me know if you have specific suggestions or requests; I welcome the input. It will be interesting to see what (if any) changes are going to be made to the MSP to align with the Common Core State Standards. One thing is for sure--third grade teachers will be happy that many of the math standards that were previously introduced in third grade are now introduced in second grade. Thanks for your comments!

There should be music. Which file is giving you issues? Is music playing on the other one? My private email is coolschoolwithkaren@gmail.com. Please email me directly, and I will make any adjustments and email you new files ASAP. Thanks for contacting me.

Golden Rule Days  (TpT Seller) re: Cursive Handy Dandy Desktags - font embedded!
Hi!
I finally got back to this and figured it out myself. It was pretty easy. I must have been half asleep! BTW, what are the 200 charts you mentioned in the description?
August 19, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Karen Harris  (TpT Seller)
There should be a set of 2 200 chart models at the end of the PPT file. I would be happy to send you a copy of the page via private email. I am tinkering around with a different style of the 200 chart.

I also just added a page of lined strips that can simply be taped over the name section of a student who has moved, making it fast and easy to adjust. It will also save you ink, too!

One more thing... if you have any ideas for additional or substitute features on the desktags, let me know.

My private email is coolschoolwithkaren@gmail.com
Send me yours, and I'll send you these versions and updates!

Hi there,

Thanks for purchasing the desktags. I'll be happy to coach you through. I appreciate having the feedback.

You can call me on my cell 360.628.6910 (pacific time). I'm a night owl, so don't worry about calling late at night--it won't disturb anyone else in the house.

I'm also on Facebook, so we could do a live chat as you are working on the names, if that works better for you. My Facebook fanpage is coolschoolwithkaren. I'm not sure if the fanpage has the chat feature (it's new for me!), so you could also send me a friend request so we have access to the live chat feature.

My direct email is coolschoolwithkaren@gmail.com
My new blog is www.coolschoolwithkaren.blogspot.com

I would be so honored if you would become a follower. :-)

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Karen

Hi There,

Sorry about that--I hadn't realized the conflict. I will be happy to fix that. I will reupload this weekend, but if you'd like to send me your email address, I'd be happy to send the file your way as soon as I finish them. Thanks for contacting me. My direct email is coolschoolwithkaren@gmail.com.

Hi There,

Please email me privately at mkkaren@aol.com. We can make this work!

I'm thinking that you could download the zip version, and I will send the individual files to your email account. Did you notice that there are two different fractions PowerPoints? You can get them as a bundled pack at a discount.

Thanks!
