I just downloaded your To Kill a Mockingbird reading comprehension packet, but it has little marks over the entire thing so it is unusable. The preview was this way, but I assumed it was so people couldn't print it out and use it. I can barely read it this way. How do I get the little marks removed?

PS- I went to page color in Word and changed it to clear and now it is fine. Now I am going to go read it! I'm so excited.

Do I need to give my accounts payable person any special instructions for ordering The Prince and the Pauper unit through a school district P.O.? I have submitted a P.O. for the unit plus 2 site licenses for my teaching partners. I have put my school e-mail address on the P.O. since the file comes electronically.

Thank you!

Okay this is what I heard back from TpT:

In order to pay with a school purchase order, you must first have an established account, which enables you to buy products from the catalog.

If you need to open an account, you can do that here:

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Signup

Once you have a membership, you can then add products to your cart. **Please note that you must have a minimum of $20 to pay by School Purchase Order.

At checkout, select the ‘pay by School Purchase Order’ option. Your order will be added to a ‘TpT PO cover sheet’. Please download this form.

Fill in your school's information and then email, fax or send it back to us. In addition to the TpT cover sheet, we also need your school's purchase order form that has been signed by the appropriate person at your school.

I am thinking of purchasing the unit on The Prince and the Pauper. If I purchase it, along with 2 other site licenses, then my 2 teaching partners and I can all use it, correct? I just wanted to make sure I understand correctly. Thank you!

Buyer re: The Shakespeare Stealer by Gary Blackwood Reading Comprehension Quizzes
This did not convert properly into my computer program. I feel like I wasted my money. I can read the first three pages but the others are really mixed up. I have had to move your tables around and even then, you can only read parts of the pages. Working on this has wasted my time. If I promised not to use what I can read with students, will you refund my money? Everything else I have downloaded has worked fine but the seller has placed documents in Adobe files. I will just have to buy something from a different author.

Hi,

I have revised the document so that there are no more tables and saved it in three different formats. You should be able to re-download. If you still have any trouble, email me at rainanichole@gmail.com, and I will send you the files directly. Since you feel your time was wasted, I will work on getting you a refund as well. I have not received this request before, so I think I will need to go through customer support. It may take a few days, but should be resolved soon. Sorry for the inconvenience!

I am so sorry about that! It is a zipped file, so once it is downloaded, you should be able to double click, and it will unzip into a folder for you. I just tried downloading directly from the site and had no problem opening it. Please try downloading again.

Mrs Burditt  (TpT Seller)
Hi,

You might start by re-downloading from your "my purchases" page on TpT just in case anything goofy happened while you were downloading originally. The file you download will be a zipped file, so you need to double click it to unzip. It should create a folder with several items in it. Inside the folder will be a file with the blue Prezi icon. Just double click that icon, and then your computer will probably ask if you really want to “open” the web-created file. No worries; there’s no virus, so just open and enjoy. For full-screen viewing, be sure to click on the small icon in the lower right-hand corner. You can ignore all of the other files that are in the folder, but don't delete or move them. They are needed to run the show.

Let me know if you have any more trouble, and I'll be happy to help you. Thanks so much for purchasing! My students really enjoy this one.

Let me know if you continue to have trouble, and I will contact TpT. If you want to email me at rainanichole@gmail.com, I can also email the files to you directly.

Comma Rules Unit - Video, PowerPoint, Notes, Homework, Quizzes, and Test
Hi,
I recently bought this and plan on using it Thursday. For some reason I am having difficulty finding the Answer Key for the 16 page PDF practice document. In addition, it appears to be separated into various assignments for the one power point. As a new teacher, can you advise on pacing for a 45 minute 7th grade class period with 25 students?

Thanks,
Carla Keeter

Mrs Burditt  (TpT Seller)
Hi,

I have the lesson divided into thirds because I usually assign everything as homework. Students watch a third of the video, fill in the notes as they watch, and complete the homework worksheet. Then we review and practice in class the next day. I usually go this route if we are reading a novel, which means we don't have as much class time to devote to grammar.

I have also taught the entire PowerPoint as one lesson. I would estimate that it would take about 30 minutes to present the PowerPoint, giving students time to fill in their notes. Then you would assign the homework worksheets, giving them some class time to get started if you have leftover time. You could easily paste the three separate documents for the notes and homework into single documents to give to the students. I would use the PDF practice to review the next day after grading their homework. I forgot to include an answer key to the PDF practice document, but I will update the download right now. You will be able to re-download from your "my purchases" page.

Please let me know if you have any other questions; I'm happy to help!

Yes, there are five PowerPoints, a word stem chart for students to fill out while viewing the PowerPoints, a review game, and a 55-question quiz covering all 50 stems. (The extra five questions ask them to apply the knowledge by using their knowledge of stems to deduce the definitions of unfamiliar words.)

I'm so sorry that it took a few days for me to get back to you. (I was out of town). I have added an answer key to the study guide document (just scroll past the study guide on the Word document to find it listed again with answers in italics). I have also added a Prezi version of the study guide. It is in the form of a presentation that zooms into the question and then zooms into the answer. This is great for quickly quizzing students as part of a review session or for grading the study guide together as a class. You should be able to go to your purchased page to download the updated files. Thanks!

Hi Raina,

I have just purchased the lesson clauses, downloaded it and saved it. Upon reopening the file on my mac, the commas in the examples (in red) are all over the place. Is there a reason why this is happening and is there a way for me to correct it?

Kind regards,

Hi Natasha,

I created the PowerPoint on my Mac, so I'm not sure why that would be happening. I have re-saved the PowerPoint in two different PowerPoint formats and as a PDF and then updated the download link. If the new downloads are also skewed, the PowerPoints are fully editable, and it should only take a few minutes to drag the commas to the correct spots. Sorry about that!

Thanks,

Great I appreciate your quick response. Even if you cannot get the same clip, please attempt to fill that box with a link that currently works so I can display that this year. What I think I will do once you attempt to fix it is take screen captures of the You Tube video clips within the Prezi presentation and save them as separate files. This way if the clips are removed or deleted from You Tube, I will have a separate video file not attached to You Tube, which I can still play for the kids. I love Prezi but the only problem is exactly what we are faced with, sometimes You Tube clips are marked private or deleted and then unfortunately the presentations need to be re-worked. I appreciate your time and positive energy looking into this.

Okay, I uploaded the actual video files into the prezi instead of just YouTube links, so now they should be permanent fixtures :-) I also added a bit about Rosa Parks - she told an interviewer that Emmett Till was her inspiration for not giving up her seat on the bus. And I added a web address at the end of the prezi as a resource for further research on the topic. You should be able to re-download from your "My Purchases" tab. Let me know if you have any trouble!

It seems one You Tube video has since been removed or marked for private viewing only. Do you recall what this video was pertaining to in the overall project?
