I love your packets so much that I purchased all of them! There are a couple of typos in the packets. The word "ants" is written with an apostrophe in your spring packet. Also, the word mitt is written with only 1 t in one of your packs (I can't remember which).
Thank you again. Your packets really are wonderful:).

My entire grade level would like to post the monthly homework calendars on their class parents to access online. (Copies are very limited.) I own all of them. There are 8 of us so I would need to purchase 7 additional licenses. I will be sure we provide a link to wear the calendars were purchased. Any other guidelines? Thoughts? Thank you!

Hello,

Thanks so much for your support on TpT! I understand that money is tight in a lot of corporations and printing on paper isn't always an option. I have been advised not to do this, because other teachers may access your site and copy/print the pages without purchasing them. However, I did not join TpT with the sole purpose of making extra money...I did it to share resources and help little ones grow as learners. With that said, if you provide a link to where the resource was purchased, I give you permission to post the homework calendar on your class website. Thanks so much for your honesty and enjoy the rest of your school year!

I have created Homework Book Bag kits for my Kindergarten class. Each kit includes books, instructions, academic standards, planned questions, materials, and activities that students can do with their parents at home. I have downloaded and used your Dinosaur Eggs PDF to use as an activity with my dinosaur-themed book bag. These homework kits are a huge hit with my students and their parents. I was considering putting my kits on Teachers Pay Teachers and was wondering if I could get your permission to include a link to your TPT page with the Dinosaur Eggs activity so that others would have access to it if they wish. Thank you for your consideration and for your awesome products!

Buyer re: Weekly Behavior Report
I like this idea of simply highlightening the box that fits for the day. However is it possible to alter it?? I do not use the choice box you speak of and the two boxes seem to be redundant. I was wondering if you could make a change? If you can not I UNDERSTAND. I was wondering if you could change "choice box" to something like "My name was not on the green because I had trouble following the rules. Then in a second box below add something like "I am getting there and trying harder." In addition can you remove the faces? Although they are cute if it is a boy having trouble there shouldn't be a girl picture and vice a versa. I wanted to email this to you but could not find your email address on here.

Thanks so much for your sweet words! The computer that has all of my units stored on is has a cracked screen, and I am hoping to resume work on it when I get it back in the next few weeks. I was not smart and I saved a few units on my desktop for ease of access and it was a big mistake!! If you sign up to follow me, you will receive an e-mail when new items are posted. Thanks again, for your interest and support on TpT!!

Kim, I absolutely love this summer packet! I just bought it, and I'll be working today on getting it ready to send home on Tuesday. Is there any way you could email me a blank form of your calendars I could type on (i.e. like a Word format)? The reason I ask is June doesn't start on a Monday so I would like to have a calendar that I can write in an activity on Friday, June 1st. I think it would be easier if there were dates on the calendars to make sure students stay on track with their assignments. Also, what font did you use for this pack? I love it!

I was wondering if you were going to update this summer skills packet? Since Common Core Standards published there are some skills like (ten frame activities & number combinations for ten) and some activities (time & money) that are no longer items that will be assessed in kindergarten leading to first grade. Love your work!

I will be updating the Summer Skills Packet. I had intended to have it updated before this summer, but family circumstances prevented it. I will work on it soon, but I apologize that it will not be ready for this summer. Thanks so much for your interest and support on TpT!

I purchased the summer skills packet for K going to 1st yesterday. The cover page did not download. Also, the 3rd July Friday/Monday sheet did not download properly. (Writing sentences & counting the words.) Can you please re-send these to me? Thank you!

Not yet.....I am a little slow to jump on the blog wagon. There are so many terrific ones and that is a future goal of mine. I really appreciate your interest, though. Have a GREAT summer!
