Mike, I bought this today but was wondering if a key came with it. I only ask because I myself couldn't figure out the answer for #1 on part 2 of the 1st Vocb. test. The sentence that begins with "The will _____" What word goes there? Is it a typo? ANy help is appreciated.

Buyer re: Phonics Rules Spelling Lists
Hi Great word list. The list for 'long I and O rule' only has the word climb -- I'm assuming this is a mistake.
You do have a lot on a page, but I wish it was in 14 point font. I like that this is in Word.
The words are great! Thank you.

I just bought your fluency triangles. The pictures are not blurry; however, some of the pages, the bottom of the triangle cuts off half of the sentence, and on others, it doesn't even show the last sentence. Do you have any suggestions.
Thanks!

Cassandra S. re: Summary Bingo
Hi, I just downloaded this BINGO game for my 5th graders and I am very excited to try it with them. I am having the same problem as the other users, in that I can't seem to download the paragraphs. I did find the file, but when I downloaded it I only received some of the paragraphs. Much of the file that I downloaded was code. I did receive all of the cards with no problem.

You will need to install the Mimio software on your computer before you can open it. Google Mimio software and then download. If you already have the software or it still wont open let me know.

It should be in there, you might be missing it due to the number of files in the folder. Look again and let me know, if you still can't find it you can leave your email and I'll email it to you. Thank you for purchasing the item I really appreciate it!

I went back and looked and it is with the first bingo card titled summary bingo

Just open each card and resize the cells so they fit on one page. Then print. You will have to print each card separately. Unless you cut and paste into one document, which is what I should have done when I created this. I may go back and change it.

I just purchased your Main Idea Bingo cards and the cards are showing fine in excel, but the calling card is in word and is a bunch of numbers and # signs. Any idea what is causing this. I'm running windows 07.
