Is there any way you can make them for me and I can pay for them? They are: blue, eat, was, and our. These really are terrific and I can't wait to start using them!

Hi Lindsay! :)

It's me again... Lisa Zinn Gilbert. I had asked you awhile ago about what program you use to make your products and where you get fonts, clipart, etc. I feel so dumb when it comes to this stuff!! I lost your response email. :( I have been making and selling jewelry in my "free time", but I think I'm going to take a break from that and start making products for the things I do in my fifth grade classroom. Any help or advice you can offer (for the second time - sorry!) would be SO appreciated. I know it's a BUSY time of year, so just whenever you get a chance... Thanks SO MUCH! Hope you're doing well and that your family is healthy and happy!

xo... Lisa

By the way, my email is lgilbert@salemorange.com.

Hi! I just purchased your Mother's Day unit. However, when I downloaded it, your cute font on the front cover, survey, activity sheets, etc. has disappeared and has changed to a basic font that just is not as pretty! My Adobe Reader is up to date, so it's not that... any suggestions on how to fix ASAP, so I can print off and use your great survey? Thanks.

This is so cute!

I just thought that you might like to know that Read Across America is a trademarked term just like the cat that shall not be named!

I don't think that we can use that term in our packs. Just thought you would like to know

Thanks for the heads up Shuna!! I was wondering if it was copyrighted . . . it seems like it would be more of a holiday thing - like Thanksgiving or something.

Hi, Lindsay! Found your blog while searching for 3rd grade open house ideas. I was moved from 1st to 3rd this year and am starting to hyperventilate thinking about open house! I absolutely love your Native Americans projects you had on your bulletin board (I particularly loved your clay dolls and basket weaving) and was hoping you had info on how to make them among your TpT items. Alas, I don't see anything! :( I also saw what looked like astronauts, moon phases and some kind of booklet for space on a bulletin board. Do you have that for sale? If you don't have an official PDF of it, do you have any unofficial documents/info about what they are and how to make them that you can sell? I don't really need lessons for the Native Californians as I'm a California teacher also (used to live in Aliso Viejo--not far from you in Laguna Niguel) :) and have already taught it, but would like to know what projects you did for it for Open House and how you made them. I haven't started the solar system yet, so I might be interested in buying a whole unit if you have one for sale. Otherwise, info on the projects I saw displayed on a bulletin board (saw it in the photo where you showed the pastel self portraits) would be great. Please let me know if you have any of this for sale. P.S. Also, the Third Grade Gazette page is great too. I might be able to create one myself, but if you already have it, it might be easier to purchase it from you. Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you soon! Darlene

Hi, I purchased this document and opened it on a Mac. The entire document had letters missing in random places and letters squished up together and unreadable in others. There were also pictures that were missing parts. I was kind of disappointed that after spending 8 dollars, I could only use one or two of the pages because of these errors :( Is there anything you can do to fix this problem?

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Spring Has Sprung Number Sequencing Freebie
I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done!

Here are a few of suggestions that might help you to better market this product. Create a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (Center? Individual Work? Paste the answers?) List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product. I notice you used the footer to put the your name and date of creation on EVERY page, but also add the copyright symbol. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also number your pages.

I’d would love to have your input on one of my freebies listed below. If you prefer, I also have some math freebies listed at my store.

Hi Lindsay, I am in my 1st year as a 1st Grade teacher in Sunny Brisbane, Australia. Next term my colleague and I are planning to teach an Intergrated Unit based around "Cloudy with a chance of meatballs". I am currently looking for inspiration and came across your Unit and it looks amazing!! I have tried several times however to purchase it and for some reason I have been unsuccessful (I know I have $6 in my CC!). Not sure what to do as I am pretty desperate. Is there any chance we could come to some sort of arrangement. I used to be a Primary School Music Specialist...Any chance you would consider a resource barter??? I look forward to hearing from you soon. :-)
