Kim,
I can't get several of the links to work. Do you have updated links?

Kim Holdbrooks Townsel  (TpT Seller)
I am so sorry about that! I try to stay on top of the changing links. The unit was updated this month but if you bought an older version, it might have some that are out-of-date or changed. If you can email me at schoolskills101 at earthlink.net I can help you with this and the answer key for the Fill-in-the-Blank.

Here is another one that is informative with references: http://etiquette-guide.com/etiquette-history/

Updating the file now. :)

Is this included in the unit you sell on manners or is it separate? Thank you!

Greetings, Chrissy! Forgive me; I just now saw this. The PP is in my store; here is the link: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Kids-in-the-Kitchen-PowerPoint-by-Kim-Townsel
If you use the search feature on my site and type in Kids in the Kitchen, that should also work. :)

Hi Kim, I am a Home Economics/Health/Girls Fitness Teacher at a local high school. I taught Home Economics for 8 years but stayed home to raise our children for 21 years. I recently returned to the profession and am a little overwhelmed at how different it is!! Thankfully I found this wonderful site that I have loved because it has saved me tremendous amount of time in planning tried and true lessons for all the different classes that I teach. This 9 weeks term I have been given a Nutrition and Cooking class to teach that currently has 24 students and 4 kitchens. Years ago I planned lessons, wrote lesson plans, and was able to start students off at the basic levels of food preparation. I had no problem dividing and organizing the cooking groups etc. But now? I am lost!!! Of course I got rid of all of my notebooks with all of my plans years ago!! I was wondering if you have any available materials that I can purchase that include basic cooking procedures, ideas on organization of the kitchen labs, organizing the cooking lab groups, activities, power points, worksheets on cooking utensils, and methods and inexpensive recipes that are pretty basic. If you can help me out with any of this it would be greatly appreciated! Toni Floyd

Greetings! I do have a lot of that type of resources. My arm is in a cast and when it comes off and I return from vacation, I will try to post items next week. Find me on FaceBook as Secondary Teaching and remind me if you don't see anything pop up by the 25th.

Hi Kim,

I've looked at a bunch of your products and they are great! Do you have any tips for me as a seller on TpT. I'm not able to get to the Seller's Forum (I have emailed but they haven't returned my email). I currently teach Kinder, but used to teach FCS and would like to offer items in that area. It looks like you have a lot of experience and have had success on TpT. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Sarah Burk

Hi Rita, I replied to this a long time ago, but it looks as if the reply was deleted. If you can email me at schoolskills101@earthlink.net and place SS101 Key in the subject line, I can send you an answer sheet. Thanks!

I bought your file but would like to receive it in .ppt format instead of .pdf. Could you email it to me?

One reason I sell items so cheap as .pdf is to them being changed. Usually when I share as WORD or .ppt which allows the user to change, I charge more... It should still work as a slide show; that's how we upload for Blackboard for students to view the slideshow easier.

Kim,

I'm back to download your Bellringer Bingo grid. I have a question. How did you get the shadow of your copyright across your pages? I need to do that, but I don't know how. Thanks!

Hi Vicki. It's under Windows. Here's a little Jing video to show how to do it: http://www.screencast.com/users/KimTownsel/folders/Jing/media/8c2196c3-8659-402e-8674-0092e9148731
The watermark can probably be removed that way also. :)
