Hi Katie, My second grade team loves your "Metacognition News". We wanted to know if we could have permission to put them on our Edline pages. We would upload them just as they are including the copyright and we would include a tag for your TPT store. Please let us know if we are able to do this.
Thanks again!

Counseling Counts  (TpT Seller) re: Star Wars: Forces and Friction
Hi Katie. I am getting ready to use your Star Wars: Forces and Friction packet so I had my husband helping me match the figures to the pages. He pointed something out that I wanted to let you be aware of. You misnamed "Han Solo" as "Hans Solo" on page 6 in the title of the page and above the tables. I just wanted to let you know. (I thought maybe he was wrong, but I googled it.) Thanks for your hard work!

I just purchased this product and love your idea and design. However, I was hoping that this product would have more comprehension activities to go along with a home reading program. Do you have a way for your buyer to edit this product? Will you be offering this product for older grades?

Katie, You listed a revised version of read-o...I downloaded the first page but do you have the remaining months for sale? I purchased what I think is the original since nothing matches the one page of the revised read-o. Thank you.

The Reading Web "Freebie" on your blog is a great idea! I can't download it from the link on your blog without a premium subscription to Scribd. Do you have another way to post it? Could you add it as a "Freebie" here on TpT or can you email it to me? I would like to use both signs and the reading log this coming school year.

Thanks!

It is the game mat students use when you call out a word. These are found on pages 8-32. There should be enough game mats so that you can play with an entire class! Hope this helps...Let me know if you have any other questions.

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Sight Word UNO Reading Game (1st 100 Sight Words)
I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie since you are from Ohio. (I'm orginally from Chillicothe, Ohio). I left you a rating. Well done!

Here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market this product. Create a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. Move your game directions to the second page. I noticed that every card is marked with your copyright. Way to go as items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold.

I’d love to have your input on one of my freebies listed below.

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Writing-Narratives-146-Different-Ways-to-Say-Said

Check out the Sellers Forum under Communication on your dashboard page. There are tons of ideas and helpful suggestions given by TPT veterans. The best of luck as you sell on TPT!

Buyer re: Sight Word UNO Reading Game (2nd 100 Sight Words)
My class and I love your sight word uno cards. They don't even realize they're practicing words! I have a question, though. In the directions it says students can match either the design on the card or the word. Are we supposed to print two sets of the word cards so they can match the words? We've just been leaving that part of the directions out; we just match the design or draw a card. It seems to work. I was just wondering... Thanks!

Yes, you are correct. I think someone else actually had that same question and I just haven't fixed the directions yet! Today is my day off and it's #1 on my list! :) Glad you are enjoying the cards. My kids love them too!

I used the wrong set of directions (I will fix it)! Sometimes I have my kids match the words by finding similar sounds. It depends on the sound we are working on! Make sense?
