Also the pictures on the blend hunt cards don't match the animals that they go with. If you could make these changes it would be very helpful! Thanks!

I've been using this in my Kindergarten class and they LOVE it! :) THANKS SO much for sharing your great ideas! I found a couple of mistakes though and I thought I would share them with you. You named the groundhog Glenda Ground but on all the the worksheets you call her Glady. Also Trixie and Twila clues don't all rhyme (#1) and the code word numbers don't match up with the clue numbers on the worksheet. Thanks again! :)

I purchased this unit, but when I printed it, it was not readable. It looked like it was printed in a different language. Is there a way to fix this?

Sorry you're having trouble, how frustrating, I'm not sure what the issue is but it could be an outdated version of Adobe Reader. I have downloaded and printed the unit from tpt myself so it sounds like it may be something to do with either your Adobe Reader or printer?? If you email me at kellyfindsen@gmail.com I would be happy to email you a copy and you could see if that works. Teachers Pay Teachers also has tech support if you'd like to try that.

I have a quick question for you about your Rainbow Write pages. Would you be willing/able to make another y page for me? At my school we teach them not to write "sticky y's" but instead with the curly tail (for both capital and lower case) to help prepare them for cursive. Let me know if this is something you'd be willing to do! Thank you! :)

Great question. There are multiple templates for each of the 9 total centers included in this pack (grocery store, post office, restaurant, vet clinic, dr. office, wood shop, garden center/flower shop, business office, library). For example, the templates for the business office dramatic play center include a memo template, pretend business cards, a template for taking play phone messages, and pretend checks. The templates for the restaurant include: a menu, waitress pad, and customer checks. Hope this helps!! Thanks!

I purchased this some time ago, and when I downloaded it, I got a message that said this type of file can harm my computer. Since that was the message, I had the option to open it anyway or discard the file. I chose to discard the file.
Any reason why this should happen?

I always get that message when downloading PDF's from the internet-I think your computer is saying that there is the potential for harm if the file is from an non-trusted source, but since it is from TPT, you should be fine! You can always open up a help ticket with TPT to ask their tech. department if you are still concerned. Also, I just updated the file with some new graphics so I hope you are able to open it. Sorry you are having trouble!

Hi Erin,
How frustrating for you! I just downloaded the file myself to make sure nothing was wrong with the actual file. I was able to download the whole file. It is a large file with lots of graphics, so I'm not sure if that is making it hard for your computer to handle. Be sure that you are opening the file with Adobe Reader and not Preview (if you have a Mac computer). Also, make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Reader downloaded...you may need to update. If you still can't get it, you will want to open a help ticket with TPT. I have had great luck with them responding promptly. Sorry for your trouble! ~Kelly

Hi, I think something went wrong when I uploaded that file the first time. I re-did it and tested it out. It seems to be downloading fine now. Try re-downloading it and be sure you have the latest version of Adobe reader. I used to have it as a zip file, but a lot of people didn't know how to unzip a file so I switched it to a PDF a little while ago:)

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Magic E Mini-Packet
I saw your posting on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I thought your freebie was very well done.

Here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products. Move your directions to the second page so buyers don't have to "hunt" for them. They like to know up front if the item is something they want to buy.how,

Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also, number your pages.

If you have time, I’d love to have your input on one of my freebies listed below. I like to get feedback from a variety of teachers.

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!
