Hi Michelle,
I bought your handwriting zoo and I absolutely LOVED IT!!! I'm wondering if you have "smaller" versions of the animal clipart? We made the posters for each type of animal letter (Gorilla, giraffe, monkey, turtle), but I find that they still refer back to the alphabet set above my whiteboard when it comes to handwriting and on top of that, they still have trouble writing the letters on the correct lines. I want to attach the little clip art of the animals to the handwriting cards above my whiteboard to reinforce what type of letter it is. Unless you have an alphabet set created already with those indicators to help with handwriting, is this something you can help me with? I have jungle theme in my room so this was perfect. Let me know, thanks!

I'm so glad you like the handwriting zoo! I can definitely make you some smaller clipart animals if you can let me know what size. An alphabet handwriting zoo chart is a great idea also...I might have to work on making that this summer! I've also made some handwriting pages to go with the packet and will be uploading those soon so check your purchases page and redownload the packed when you see it's been revised. My class is having a hard time with the monkey letters so I made review pages for those letters and liked it so much I made pages for the other animals as well! If you know an exact size for the animals e-mail me at inspiredbykindergarten@hotmail.com

Shellie G. re: Gingerbread Man vs. Gingerbread Baby
Hello! I love your unit, but I cannot find the correct version of your Gingerbread Man story. The version I have has a cat instead of the horse when using your 7 step retell. Is there any way you could switch out the picture. I feel bad asking, but from your Q&A I see you offered that option to another purchaser. Thank you for your help! My email is gohls@alpenaschools.com~ Thanks so much!

No problem at all! There are so many different versions of the story it's hard to do a retell worksheet that everyone can use. I'll revise the pictures and send it to you asap. : ) I should have it to you by tonight.

Buyer re: Gingerbread Man vs. Gingerbread Baby
I can't find a story version that matches your photos as far as animals in them and that's making my favorite activity, the sequencing, almost not useable. I don't want them to retell from the video. Do you have any ideas of ones with those animals?

Michelle Rist  (TpT Seller)
I'll check which books my colleagues use and get back to you. Another solution would be if you have a version or find a version you want to use you could e-mail me the sequence and I could modify the pictures for you. E-mail me at inspiredbykindergarten@hotmail.com and I can get it to you asap.

Hi Michelle! I was wondering if I could get the Handwriting/Writing Center Book without the numbers on each line. I want my kinders to use it as a dictionary for their spelling words and they are going to have way more than 8 words per letter. Let me know, thanks!

I should be able to help you out with that.
Do you just need the numbers removed or more lines added per page also?

If you'll e-mail me at inspiredbykindergarten@hotmail.com with the answers I can work on making the changes for you.

The Gingerbread Baby is Jan Brett

I just added a sequence and story map activity for the Gingerbread Baby to the packet if you're interested in those you'll need to download the packet again.

Hope this helps!

There should be words showing up in those dotted spaces. The tally mark pages should have the words "Tally Marks" in the box, the 10 frame page should say "Tens Frame", etc. Do you have the latest version of Adobe downloaded? Sometimes older versions will do strange things to pages. Take a look at this page in my blog and you'll see what they should look like: http://inspiredbykindergarten.blogspot.com/search/label/zero%20the%20hero

Hi Mary,
Sorry to hear you are having trouble with the download. Thanks for checking with me for a solution. Do you use a Mac or PC? I haven't had anyone else mention this issue on the pack so I'm wondering if it's your computer? Here are a couple things TPT suggests you try:
1. Update your Adobe Reader.
2. If you are on a Mac, do not open with Preview. It will not work. Download the most updated version of Adobe Reader and open the PDF with it (and not Preview).

I'll e-mail this information to you as well. If you try both these items and it still doesn't work we'll try something else to get the product to you!

Michelle, I am very interested in purchasing your Handwriting Zoo, it looks fantastic. I was wondering what handwriting font you use to teach your students as our school uses modern manuscript. Do you have a d'nealian or modern manuscript section to this packet?

Thanks. Tessa

Tessa,
Thanks for posting your question. There's nothing in the packet that is specifically Modern Manuscript or Zaner Bloser. It's more of a way to explain the placement of the letters on the dreaded 3 lines. I've actually used this method to teach both ways (we switched back to Zaner Bloser 5 years ago but I started teaching this method with D'Nealian). If you send me an e-mail address I can send you a screen shot of the entire packet so you can take a look at the whole thing before deciding if you would like to purchase.

Hi Michelle,
I am in love with Pete! He and I have so much in common......we like to be different!!!
I just downloaded the first day cert etc and there are black blotches on each page that i think the student names belong on/in. Am I correct in assuming this? It just seems odd and I am unclear as to their purpose. Please direct my brain....thanks, Peggy

Peggy,
I'm so sorry it has taken me son long to respond to your question! I thought I had already answered this but I just noticed the reply I sent you did not post. Are there blotches on the download? There shouldn't be. There are a few lines and you are correct the long line is for student name, the 2 shorter lines are for the date and your signature. If you would like to download again to see if the blotches go away please try this link: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BwMYKef1d9CsN1hES1FnQzFQMlk/edit

Thanks so much! Michelle

Oh my goodness...it's been so long since I downloaded it I don't remember. It was when I was first selling on TPT and I was going to the free domain sites that TPT recommended. Sorry I don't remember more!

Hey Michelle,
I purchased and downloaded the Dr. Seuss Math and Reading. I love it, and so do my kids. We were using the "counting read/write the room" activity and saw that the cards and the recording sheet do not match up. The tens frame has clocks and the recording sheet has a vase. Just wanted to let you know :)

Thank you so much for letting me know! I actually pulled that product b/c the clipart was in violation of copyright laws. Can you send me your e-mail address and I'll e-mail you an updated version? inspiredbykindergarten@hotmail.com

Sorry about the mistake!

I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating.

I have a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products. First, add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page. List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product. Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. 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.

If you have time, I’d appreciate your input on my freebie listed below.

I am now your 20th follower, and hope you will reciprocate at my store as well. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products

Welcome to TPT, and good luck with selling!
