I love you pack! However I cannot get any of it to print. The activities are the wrong dimensions. They are trying to print as 15x10 approximately. Different packs are showing up as different dimensions and none of them will work as an 8x11 for me. Any suggestions?

Michaela Peterson  (TpT Seller)
Oh no! Is there a "fit to page" option when you go to print? I haven't heard of this happening, so it may be an issue with your printer options?
If that doesn't work, I would suggest contacting the TpT Tech team using the "contact us" tab at the bottom of your screen. They are so helpful at answering all things techie. Hope that helps!

I love my garden theme pack, however It does not include a classroom banner or any poster saying 'The Garden Class' or 'The bug class' ... Do you perhaps have a banner that I could buy?
I need something for the outside of my class that will indicate the name of the class.
Please let me know ASAP if you have anything like this that would suit the garden/bug class.

Any chance you could make an entire page of hair, an entire page of shoes, an entire page of hands etc. so that I could copy them on the appropriate color of cardstock and then cut the pieces apart for the kids to cut out? Tracing all those pieces is very time consuming. I love the activity and want to purchase your entire packet to do with my kids!

Hi Cindy! The picture should be horizontal because that's how PowerPoint displays portrait pages. In PowerPoint, you should be able to click the text boxes and type what you would like. It should all display horizontal but print out like a portrait page. Go ahead and print a practice page if you can and let me know if it works out for you. :)

I'm interested in purchasing this packet (I'm obsessed with owls!) and was wondering if you could add the Owl themed Alphabet line. I know that it is sold as a package with the word wall letters but those are already included in this packet so I wouldn't want to purchase it twice!
Thanks so much.

Hi Maria. Thanks so much for your interest! For now I'm going to keep the Alphabet Line sold separately from the packet. My other theme packets have it included, but they are more pricey and I'd like to keep the owl theme price lower. When I put the packet of the word wall/alphabet line together I saw the word wall as more of a bonus to the main part being the alphabet line.
I hope you understand. Thanks so much!

Buyer re: Owl Classroom Theme Decor & Back to School Essentials {Editable}
Hello- I just purchased your pack and the blank owls (which I would like to write names on and hang on the door) are too small. How do I make them bigger? Maybe 2 on an page or 4 (instead of 6)?

Ocean/Beach Theme Newsletter

I just purchased the newsletter and LOVE the graphics and design of the page but would love to be able to add a back section with large text boxes. Is there any way I can enlarge the current text boxes to create a back page in order to input more information?

I purchased this set last week and I love it. I feel like this is a silly question, but the editable boarder and newsletter is horizontal in the powerpoint instead of vertical. I wanted to flip it so I can type in the text box. I have tried all the tricks I know to flip it with no luck. Can you help with this please? Great work on t his project. You have saved me so much time.
Thanks,
Debbie

Hi Debbie! I'm not sure if I'm understanding your question right, but when adding text to the newsletter you click the "insert text here" box and type. It should automatically flip the text back to be in line with the newsletter text, when you're done typing and click away (when using the Powerpoint version of editables). Please e-mail me if it's not working for you and I can try to walk you through the steps in a more concise way. Thanks Debbie!

Any chance of you using the Daily Five Owl themed colors to create the CAFE strategy cards? I have bought and used many of your items including the customizable ones, but am having a hard time making my own. Would love to have the strategy cards in those colors. Thank you

Supply cards are not specifically included, but editable label cards are. :) I'd be happy to put supply cards on my to-do list, but it may be a few days. Feel free to e-mail me the supplies you'd like to have on labels if you're interested. teachermichaela(at)gmail(dot)com

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 1st/2nd grade for 7 yrs(A 1st and 2nd combo for 5 years and a straight 1st grade for 2 years!). I also taught Kindergarten overseas for a year. There is just something amazing about teaching young children. They have so many "light-bulb" moments! I also love being able to influence their characters, so they can become positive and loving citizens of our school, community, nation and world!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love group work and hands-on activities! If I can get the kids outside to do an activity even better!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I've been nominated a few times for "Who's Who Among Teachers" and have received many "You're the BEST teacher ever!" awards from my students. :)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a B.S. in Elementary Education. I'm certified to teach all subjects K-8 and have endorsements to teach certain 9th-10th Grade classes.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My husband (an Outdoor Education Director) and I love the out-of-doors and traveling the countryside to visit family! We are the proud parents of a beautiful baby girl, that keeps us on our toes. We are in pursuit of a simpler life that is focused on relationships with others, rather than things, and hope to glorify God in that pursuit. Teaching runs in my veins, and I'm constantly bouncing ideas off of my amazing mother, who teaches middle school in sunny Flor-i-day (LUCKY)!
