Elizabeth E. re: The Diary of Anne Frank - A Complete Unit
Hi, Mrs. Nelson,
I just purchased your Diary of Anne Frank (play) Unit, and I am looking forward to using it when we read the play this quarter. I have a couple of issues to bring up/ask: On the How Could It Happen PowerPoint, slide #4 has a typo: the word "group" should be "groups" I don't know if when you change it, it will get fixed on my end, though. Would I have to download it again?
Next, when I open the file where it lists all of the contents, the second to last item lists "$he Frank - Act I Think Questions. I get a message saying that it cannot be opened because of some of the content. Could you take a look at this.
Otherwise, thank-you for all your hard work. I will rate it once I use it, but it looks great!

Elizabeth,

Thank you for trying out my product! I'm sorry for the mistakes on my end. I will get them corrected as soon as possible. I assume that you will have to download the files again once they are fixed.

I apologize for my slow response. I have just recently had my second baby and am enjoying my maternity leave. :)

Thanks again and good luck!

Can you please list the author's names on the short stories you use for the fiction unit? I am having trouble finding some of the short stories used in the lesson plans. Thank you

For sake of simplicity, I've always tried to use short stories that were found in the students' literature books. Most literature books will have stories that emphasize a specific element, characterization or setting, for example. As I've moved across states and switched schools, the stories have rarely remained the same. Most of the assignments and activities are easily adapted to a new story. However, below are the stories that I've used that can also be found online or elsewhere.

Setting or Point of View: "Zoo" by Edward D. Hoch
Point of View: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst
Point of View: The Real Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka
Plot: "The Landlady" by Roald Dahl


I hope that helps! Thanks for trying my product!

Brittany Higgins  (TpT Seller) re: FUN Poetry Unit for Middle School Students
I purchased this yesterday, but I am having difficulty opening the PDF files. There are no words on the files only black blurs/bars. Is there a way to correct this as every PDF except the Day 1 Poems are like this? If it makes a difference I am using a Mac.

Thanks!

I wish I could be more helpful, but I'm not a technical guru. My only suggestion would be to try to update your software. Other than that, I honestly don't know. Thanks!

When I open the Style Analysis page it is blank. This is the only page that is. What might I be doing wrong?

Thank you for buying my product and I'm so sorry you're having difficulties! I am not quite sure what the problem is--I was able to download the file and open it without any issues. Just to make sure, I re-uploaded the entire file and was able to download the Style Analysis to a different computer just fine. If you still haven't been able to open it, I can email you the individual document if you are comfortable with that. I apologize again for your trouble!

Buyer re: Freak the Mighty - A Complete, Skills-Based Unit
The description says there is a Power Point presentation. Is it compatible on a MAC?
Thanks

All the PowerPoint presentations are saved in the standard, default format. As far as I know, they should work okay. However, I do not have a Mac to test this out for you. I'm sorry I ant be more helpful! Thanks!

Shelley B. re: FUN Poetry Unit for Middle School Students
Dear Mrs. Nelson,

I purchased this unit yesterday and was wondering if you had the names of the authors of the poems you included on the Day 1 Lesson. I would like to give the authors of these poems credit. Thank you.

I have updated the files giving credit where credit is due, but was mistakenly omitted. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention.

I am unable to open the adobe files for your lessons I just purchased. Please let me know when you have re-attached the files.
Thank You!

I'm so sorry you're having trouble. I re-saved the documents as .pdf files and re-uploaded the entire folder. I hope you will be able to download them now. I was able to download all the .pdf files from Teachers Pay Teachers on a computer other than the one I made them on. Please let me know if you are still having difficulties and I can try another solution. Thanks!

What formats are these files? I am not able to open them...

The files come in a .zip file. You need the winzip program to open it. You can download it for free online if you just google "winzip." If you can't get the files to open or if you'd simply prefer, I can email the files to you individually, if you don't mind giving me an email address. The individual files are PowerPoint and Microsoft Word. Please let me know if that is what you would like me to do and I can send them right away. Sorry about that! I apologize for any inconvenience.

Jeri Millhouse  (TpT Seller) re: A Christmas Carol - Guided Reading Activities and Background Info
Hi! I bought this resource, but I don't see any kind of answer key to the guided reading packet. (?) Also, there is very little written information on the PPT presentation. I'm going to have to do a lot of research to come up with narrative to match the pictures. Can you provide me with an answer key and also with some lecture/background info to go with the PPT?

Jeri,

Thank you for purchasing my product and thank you for your question! I have updated the file with an answer key and in the power point I have written my basic lecture that goes along with the slides in the notes section of the power point program. I apologize for the slow response--I have been moving and trying to get organized again! Please let me know if you have further questions or if I can help in any way!

Thanks again!
