Hello,
I loved the candy awards I purchased, but I have a few others I would like to make for different categories.
Do you have a blank template I can write in the awards or a word file you can send me?
Thanks so much!

I did not realize there were only 3 puzzles in the pack. The description makes it sounds as though there are a lot of puzzles ranging from easy to hard. That said i really like them- just wish I would've known there were only 3!

I have tried on two different computers to download this file. It says this file may be damaged and can't be opened. I also asked two other people to try on their computer and they had the same problem. I previously emailed you regarding this matter last week and you responded that you would get back to me.

I'm SOO sorry! Yesterday was so crazy that I completely forgot. Emailing myself to take care of it first thing in the morning.

Okay, it should be fixed now. Please try again and let me know if it still doesn't work.

I just purchased this, and I'm a little confused on the author's purpose center. What does it mean by poke your pencil through the card above your answer choice to see if you are correct?

Melissa Dalton  (TpT Seller)
I hole punch where the holes are on the card and then make a little dot (with highlighter so it doesn't show through) above the correct answer. That way, students can check on their own.

I actually don't have an updated version because I haven't taught science in a few years and didn't even realize they were outdated now. I could send you the notes in Word so they are editable.

I have a question about a document that I bought and downloaded from you. I downloaded the plant interactive notes and the flip charts and I am not able to open the flipcharts that go witht he notes. Is there anyway you could send them to me in a smartnotebook file or powerpoint? or let me know what software you used and I can see if I am able to open it
thank for all your hard work!

I use ActivInspire, which came with our Promethean boards. I do not think I can make it into a smartboard file, but I can work to make it a Powerpoint.

I apologize. I did not mean to post this publicly. I thought that submitting a question would have it sent to the seller. I would not have posted this on your page, as it could convey a negative review. I think the brain teasers are excellent and worth the price, and I appreciate you being willing to add the number you get with the package.

Buyer re: Brain Teaser Puzzles with Charts
Hi,
I was expecting a few more brain teasers in this pack. When I saw the samples, I was assuming that meant samples, not that there were only 3 in the entire pack, so that's why I bought it. I just wanted to comment that I think that stating that it does only contain 3 puzzles would be fair.
I look forward to using it with my tutoring students tomorrow.
Thanks,
Jennifer in Cleveland, Ohio

My hope is to continue adding to it, but I can add the current amount in the description. I will send an update as I add more to notify you, though.

Scott has two slides because he is the littering lunatic. The first slide is the set of clues. The second explains why he did it.

It's me again....I also downloaded your Color Coded Dolch Word Wall Words to see if it was my printer or what...just trying to problem solve. It printed in another font, but directions are in the same foreign language as the other one I tried to print of yours.

Buyer re: Inferencing "Scoot"


I just purchased your Inferencing Scoot. When I downloaded it, it looked like it was fine. However, when I went to print it, it printed in another language. I purchased several other downloads and they all printed fine. Any suggestions? If not is there a way you could email me a copy of this. I am willing to show you my receipt of where I ordered it!

Hi-
I just bough the Monster Valentine Literacy Centers and noticed that the main idea part, although the graphics are for Valentine's Day, the directions and other parts mention snowmen and Christmas. Could this be fixed and re-downloaded?
Thanks so much - my students will enjoy these next week.
