Kim,
I am loving your products and hope you do more for upper grades! I am using your idea for the 100 years old frame and app to turn the kids older. My pictures are a little close up and I was wondering if it was possible to get them just a bit bigger so I can put the 4x6 picture behind the opening? I would be fine if you posted it and I bought it. Thanks

Buyer re: Fairy Tale Inference Investigation
Suggestion: add a teacher resource page in addition to your direction page with a picture of what the product looks like assembled and maybe a sample sheet of what students might write for their answers?

Kim Short  (TpT Seller)
Thank you for the suggestions. I try and do that with all new products. This product is one of my oldest and the computer I created it on has crashed and I didn't have it backed up.
I can however, do a preview file and will do that, but my fairy tale investigation is at school so it will be at least Monday!

I just bought the fairy tale investigation pack. Am I supposed to write the clues?
March 2, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Kim Short  (TpT Seller)
The clues are the 4 pictures for each fairy tale. Students take out one picture at a time and write it down. After all four picture clues are written down, they solve the case. Looks like I need to go back and edit the description to say picture clues so there is no more misunderstanding! Sorry about that! I hope you still find it useful! You can email me at dkdkk@iowatelecom.net if you have any other questions!

Hi,

It usually means adobe reader needs updated! Happens to me about once every few months and I have to have my principal come in to do the update. Hope that helps! Let me know if it doesn't!

Hi Kim,
I love this poem! It is darling. I am not sure if I should say anything but the first letter of every line should be capitalized and fall does not start with a capital. http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/when-capitalize-seasons?page=all
Sorry if I am being picky. I would like to pin it.

Thank you! Don't apologize, feedback is appreciated! I would MUCH rather you tell me this way than give me a bad rating! I don't have anyone proof things for me and I should! I created this poem on my laptop that crashed so I am unable to fix it. When I have a little extra time I will redo it on my new laptop with the changes! Thanks again!

Kim Short  (TpT Seller)
Dice in Dice are plastic dice that have dice on the inside so you need one dice for a game instead of two. I included live links to Amazon on the download. It does not have anything to do with Yahtzee, just my addition to make it different! The students love the novelty of these dice so I only get them out occassionally!

Hi Sanannah,
My laptop with all of my documents crashed. I am waiting for someone to look at it and hopefully recover everything. I had things backed up on a flash drive but it broke...thanks to one of my children! I revised my description to state this but you must have had it on your wish list! Send me your email at dkdkk@iowatelecom.net and I will send it to you when it is (hopefully) recovered!

What grade level are you looking for? I teach 1st grade, so I used our guided reading books with these. Any fiction book will work! Do you have a favorite book? I might suggest using that since you will be comfortable with it! Let me know what grade and I will give you some suggestions! Good luck!

Buyer re: Character & Setting Common Core Activity For Fairy Tales
I purchased both the Character & Setting Common Core Activity For Fairy Tales and the Story Elements for Fairy Tales thinking they were two different sets:( I realize that they are the same thing, now that I printed them out. It is only a $1.60, so I am not worried about it, but you might want to make sure they have the same title so that someone else doesn't purchase them both. I really was excited to see that someone had already created activities to go with the Fractured Fairy Tale set:)

Hi! I am sorry about that! I thought when you add a product and it says create a similar listing, it meant you can add the same product and call it something different for search purposes! I meant to change it and haven't got that done yet! My email is dkdkk@iowatelecom.net. Please email me with another product you would like and I will email it to you for free. Again, I am sorry for the confusion!
