Sometimes products do not open because computers do not have the latest version of Adobe downloaded. Try that and see if that helps. Here is a link to a blog post about how to get TPT files to open that might help, too.

http://ericabohrer.blogspot.com/2012/05/trouble-opening-tpt-files.html

If none of this helps, email me and we can see what we can do. kinderkay1921@gmail.com

I am sorry about this... I know it is frustrating to purchase something that is an instant download and you cannot open it......

Buyer re: Alphabet Picture Cards
What size are the big alphabet cards? Thanks!
March 24, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
KinderKay
KinderKay  (TpT Seller)
The large cards are letter sized (8 1/2 x 11 inches) BUT when printed the colors will print as 7 1/2 x 10 inches with a small white border around the blue polka dots. This is the default size of a power point resource. I also checked the preview and noticed that the correct file was not showing, so I uploaded a new preview file which shows all the cards included!

Hope this helps!

Hello!
I just purchased 3 of your units! I love them and can't wait to complete them all with my kiddos!
I have a couple of requests (if possible).....On the Nutrition Unit is it possible to change pg 42 of "My healthy kid book" to a full size page? It is two half pages instead of a full page to cover the book. Thanks!
Also, is there any way possible to change the picture of the child sneezing into the Kleenex to read something like, "Be sure to wash your hands after blowing your nose"? I teach the kids to sneeze and cough into their elbows, instead of their hands and it has made a difference in kiddos getting sick! :) Is it also possible to make a page showing a child sneezing or coughing into their elbow that says something like, "....cough or sneeze into your elbow....." ?
These are a lot of requests and I apologize. I just wanted to ask you first before trying to figure something out on my own! I don't have the fabulous skills in making these wonderful books and units as you do! Thanks so much for all of your hard work and dedication and in especially sharing all of these units with all of us...what a blessing you are!
Thanks again,
Ellie :)

I really like your packets. I was going to use your "American symbols" packet with my homeschool co-op class, and I would still like to, however, could you correct one error before I do? The Liberty Bell actually rang for almost 100 years (1753-1846) before it cracked. The abolitionists first called it the Liberty Bell as well. Thanks.
February 27, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
KinderKay
KinderKay  (TpT Seller)
Hello!
Here is the information that I used for this resource. It was taken from THE LIBERTY BELL by Judith Jango-Cohen published by Lerner Publications Company © 2004. On page 7, these words are written "In 1752, the bell had just come on a ship from England. On the very first ring, it cracked! Continuing to page 8 and 9..... "John Pass and John Stow fixed the cracked bell. They melted it down to liquid metal. They added some copper to make it stronger. Pass and Stow poured the metal into a mold. They cast a new bell. It was a big, clanging, bonging bell." I also researched the bell on the official website of the liberty bell (http://www.nps.gov/inde/liberty-bell-center.htm) Here is what it says "A bell for the Pennsylvania State House was cast in London, England, however, it cracked soon after it arrived in Philadelphia"

So....... I feel like I gave the correct information for this particular part of the liberty bell's history. I understand your concern, though, as the liberty bell WAS repaired and rang for several years before it rang for the last time. So, I went ahead and changed that particular slide and removed the words "It cracked the first time it rang." It now simply says "The liberty bell is a symbol of the United States of America. It symbolizes liberty."

Hope this is an acceptable change for you! Thanks for bringing this to my attention! I try so hard to make sure that my products are accurate and appreciate all the wonderful feedback that I receive!

TinyGrads  (TpT Seller) re: Apple Counting and Number Match
Hello!

We saw your freebie, and would love to put it up on TinyGrads.com as a free download there as well by our large community of teachers and parents.

Though our policy of no "external links" prevents us from "linking" to your TpT store directly, we'd love to give you credit, put your name and TpT ID picture up there, and use text to point our parents and teachers to your store where they might want to purchase your “for sale” items from there.

We thought this might be a great a way to give you a little “free advertising” and for our community of parents and teachers (and the children they teach) to be able to enjoy your work as well.

We'll take care of loading your freebie up there, all we need is your permission.

Hope you have a great day!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks!
Peter

I was wondering if there is any way you would mind changing two things for me to fit my unique situation? I teach at an Islamic/Montessori school. Is there any way you can change the train to not be a "Christmas" train? Also, in Montessori the vowels are blue and the consonants are red. Is there any way you could change that on the tiles page for me so the kids can see the CVC pattern? If not, no biggie! I understand that it's just a freebie! Thanks for your time!

All the printables for the student book are in black and white;including the map pages. The photographs for the teacher read aloud are not; they are in color. I, myself, do not print the book. Instead I import it upon my interactive whiteboard. I love doing this because it saves ink, of course, but is also much easier for my students to see. There are 2 reading level options for the student book and both are in black and white.

Hope this helps and thank you for the complement!

Hello!
Unfortunately, we do not have emails for our buyers. The only thing we have access to is your user name. Since the product is already downloaded on your computer, I would be emailing you the same product and you would be having the same issues. :(

Is your version of Adobe updated? Here is an excellent link to Erica Bohrer's trouble shooting post: http://ericabohrer.blogspot.com/2012/05/trouble-opening-tpt-files.html

I know how you feel... I used to have the same problems with opening TPT products until I made sure that I was consistent with updating Adobe.

If you are still having problems after following Erica's tutorial, email me and we'll see what we can do!

Hmmm..... I just downloaded it from my store and everything was there. Do you have the latest version of Adobe installed on your computer? If you have a Mac computer, it defaults to Preview to open PDF's. If you open in Adobe, it SHOULD open just fine. Here is a great link with answers as to what to do if your TPT product does not open properly.

It includes Pets, Farm, and Forest only. It is in a zip file format. I plan to revise these units within the next month, though. Of course, if you go ahead and purchase before the revisions, you still would be able to get the changes for free; but if you do not need them immediately, I should have them finished by the middle of July. After they are revised, I will note that on the product description.

I have taught in Christian schools for 26 years but I am new to teacher blogging and creating materials to sell on TPT. I thought it would be great to have a Christian school teacher's blog hop. Would you be interested? Thank you! Evelyn

Would you mind further explaining what you are wanting, please? Are you wanting just the explanation of how to do the scales and the black line? That would be 2 pages?

Thanks! Cindy

No, it is not true , but for some reason that has happened to others as well as you. I am not really sure why because there have been hundreds of downloads on this item; but every so often it gives this message. I am so sorry! Please try to re-download it. If you are still given the same message, email me and I will send it to you that way. My email is: kinderkay1921@gmail.com

re: Money Trade Game
I have been looking for a game to reinforce coin money with my kindergarteners. So far I have only taught recognizing and the value of penny and dime. Teaching money is such a difficult concept for this age. I would love if you could make a bank board and game board with just penny and dime, and another with just penny and nickel so that the kiddos get practice with two coins before adding another into the mix. And for the higher kids, a bank board and game board with all four coins. Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion! I, too, teach kinder and this is a great idea! Unfortunately money has been taken from the Common Core in kindergarten and I think that I am going to leave this game as is. We still plan to continue SORTING coins, but presently we are not planning to present the concept of COUNTING coins in kindergarten. I thank you so very much for the wonderful suggestion and I will definitely keep this on the back burner for a future revision! Blessings, Cindy

I have been a TPT seller since June 2011. It took me a very long time to gain my followers. I revised and revised my products to make them into something that would be worthy of the money paid. I didn't really worry about followers when I first started. I wanted to make sure that my products were high quality before I had a large following. I have also been lucky to have had a few of my freebies in the newsletter. My blog has also helped!

Hope this helped you a little bit! Good luck! Cindy

Buyer re: Native Americans Make a Book and Mini Unit
I just downloaded the Native Americans Make A Book Mini Unit. My computer will not allow me to open it, giving me the message that there are problems with the content. It will not translate to my computer language. Not sure where to go from here. All I get is cryptic symbols of about 5 lines long.

Are you opening from a Mac? Make sure that your default is set to open in Adobe and that you have the latest version of Adobe. There is definitely nothing in the content to hurt your computer BUT it is a really large file and computers do not always want to open them. If you still have troubles, email me and I will try to help you through it later today. So sorry about that!

Buyer re: Christopher Columbus story for little kids
I just had a look at your generic Native American unit, I know you mean well, I think you should have a read of this blog (link below) - it is Thanksgiving specific but is good advice for teaching children about Native Americans. Lest they get the wrong historical impression (and believe in current day stereotypes), like is given with this benignly smiling Christopher Columbus /Explorer unit, that they painfully have to unlearn later (and many are resistant to unlearn, as seen by your response and another comment regarding my original post).
You have a great talent - it would be awesome to see you do some really meaningful and appropriate units concerning US History and Native American cultureS.

Hi Janiey,
Thank you for your interest in this unit. Have you read my whole unit or are you just reading the description? If you purchased my unit, you will see that I tried very hard to teach children that Native Americans lived in many different ways, and that Native Americans of today strive to continue their traditions in a world that has taken away so much from their culture. In my classroom, I talk to the kids about the different tribes and work VERY hard to NOT overgeneralize stereotypes. I worked to create a unit that applauded the greatness of the tribes BUT I also teach very young children so describing the horrors of what happened to these people is not in my agenda. I understand your concerns and am so sorry that you are offended by my resources.
Thank you for the link that you shared above- I read over the information carefully, and feel like I followed the same values as presented in this article. Thank you again for sharing your concerns,

Cindy

I think part of the problem is the LARGE file - sometimes computers just do not want to download them! Also, TPT is picky at times with large file downloads. I am so glad that it worked for you! I hope you find value in this resource! Don't hesitate to contact me with any more questions! Cindy

Just a quick note - you might want to correct the title to "Thanksgiving" (you're missing the n) so it shows up on searches for other kinder teachers. It's a great resource! :)

KinderKay, do you suggest washable or permanent markers for decorating the tortilla tipi? I love that idea! Awolfzorn

We actually use Crayola washable markers and they really work! They are soft enough to not tear the tortilla shell and bright enough for kids to enjoy using. Good luck -hope everything works for you! Cindy

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught second grade for 7 years in a small, rural school. After a short break to raise my children, I was offered a kindergarten position and am still there many years later and loving every minute!I can honestly say that I still jump out of bed each school morning eager to begin the day with my little ones!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that it is the teacher's job to inspire, but after the inspiration, it is then the teacher's job to step back and let the learning begin. Most of my student's day is spent in small groups, but I also believe that much can be learned in a large group setting, too. It is my belief that children learn the best when they are creating, so we do a lot of drawing, cutting, painting, and gluing in my classroom! I love it when my kinders come to school saying "What are we going to make today, Teacher?" I LOVE the love notes they write to me and I love the fact that they LOVE school! I am inspired by my students and cannot think of a better way to live my life.
