Catherine Reed - The Brown Bag Teacher
Hi Melissa, After finding out that I would be teaching 5th grade, I read Debbie Dillar’s “The Book Whisper” and fell in love with the way reading was a culture in her classroom. She mentioned having genre posters, so I wanted to create them for my own classroom that were appropriate for my ‘big’ and ‘cool’ fifth graders. That developed into three color-coordinated subway-art resources – genre posters, reading comprehension posters, and class expectations posters. :) My best, Catherine

Lisa,
Hi and thanks so much for your purchase today!
There shouldn't be any black boxes. Are you sure you have the latest version of Adobe?
If you think you do, take a look at this blog post info and see if it helps:
The sellers on TPT often get many, many questions regarding the downloads of products. If you are trying to download a product, open it, and you see blurry or black boxes, this is what you need to do.
1.Know that this is not the seller's fault or error. It's an issue on TPT's end at times and an issue on your computer's end at times. It's easy to fix, so please don't leave poor feedback due to this.
2.Go to your My Purchases page.
3.The third paragraph of text will tell you what you need to do to fix this issue. It's usually just a quick download of the newest version of Adobe Reader.
4.If you are on a Mac, DO NOT try to open TPT files in Preview. All TPT files must be opened in Adobe Reader. To choose the program to open with on a Mac, find your downloaded file, hold down the Control key and click on the file, go to Open With..., and choose Adobe Reader.
5.If you are still having problems viewing a file and none of the above worked, go to your My Purchases page and look to the right of the screen to find Download Difficulties in RED. This will direct you to a page where TPT can email you the file or you can Contact TPT for assistance.
6.Finally, if you still cannot download or open/view a file, go to the bottom of any TPT screen and find Contact Us. From there, you can Open a Support Ticket and TPT will help you with anything you might be having trouble with. They usually respond very quickly and are so sweet to work with!
I hope this helps:)
I will also email you the PDF today.

Julie T. re: Figuratively Fables
Hello,
My name is Julie and I purchased your packet last April with hopes of using it. When I just tried to open it up again to print it off for this year, many of pages had a black bar running across the page. I downloaded the newest version of Adobe hoping to fix the problem, but that did not seem to work. Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you so much for your time,
Julie

Hi! I love the Passport stamps you created; however, I'm having a bit of a problem with the stamps lining up with the address labels I purchased. I bought Avery address labels (size 1" x 2 5/8" of one label - 30 labels on one sheet). I was wondering which brand and size of labels you purchased. Thanks! :)

Life's a Teach  (TpT Seller)
You print them off on post- it notes. Print off a copy on regular paper and then cover each section with a post - it (6 total). Then feed the paper in upside down (usually, unless you are using a larger laser printer). There should be instructions in the download. Thanks.
