Buyer re: Famous Quotes Handwriting and Penmanship Practice
This is a wonderful practice for my middle school students. However, there is a small typo on the cursive page for Einstein. It is missing the word 'mistake.' Do you have an updated version with the accurate wording?

Not Your Average Classroom
YES! Please re-download. I fixed the error, improved the spacing on all sheets, and added new quote sheets from Martin Luther King Jr, Helen Keller, Confucius, and Benjamin Franklin. So sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for the heads up.

Thanks for getting back to me! I had the impression that you had them already in that format to send to Autism Educators, so it was worth asking. I know I can export each image from a duplicate page as a png or jpeg, but not from your original. You may find that the TPT sellers will want one of those formats. You are talented!

Green Grubs Garden Club  (TpT Seller) re: Fish Clip Art: Pet Store Aquarium Fish Color and Black and White
Hi there,

I'm interested in purchasing your fish clipart (love it!), but have never purchased clipart in microsoft word format before! Would I just copy and paste the images into the project I'm working on? Thanks :)

Not Your Average Classroom
Yep. The images open all together in a single word doc, but each image is individual, can be resized, rotated, copied, and pasted. Each image has a transparent background, so you can layer the image on top of others or on top of backgrounds.
They move easily into a PowerPoint, another Word Doc, or Publisher, etc.

Hi again! Please get back to me! Most customers won't want to wait 3weeks for an answer! Could you please also send me the clip art in png or jpg format if you have them already done? Copying and pasting can degrade the image so I am nervous about doing that for products I will sell. Thanks!

I don't there is any way I can reconvert jpg's from a word doc back to an original format. There may be a program out there that does it, but I have looked around and can't figure out how I could change them. Once it's in the Word doc. format it has a background. It's a transparent background but, still a background.

Can they be sent as JPG's? That's the way all of the graphics I purchase are sent (or png). I won't be using them for a Smart Board or Powerpoint. Please let me know. Thanks very much.

I can save them as a separate file and send that to you.

I thought I would just ask this question here rather than in the feedback area. Is there any way to get these graphics in another format rather than a Word document? I was planning on incorporating the graphics into my activities. Without being able to have them as individual graphics, I won't be able to use them for that purpose. The graphics are beautiful and I would really like to make good use of them Thanks very much!

What format would you like them in? If you don't know the format specifically, tell me how you need them to be different and that will give me an idea of what format you might be needing.

In most cases, the word document is the easiest to deal with. Each image is an individual graphic. They come in a word document because so far, that has been the easiest for teachers to move, copy, paste, and manipulate. It saves quite a lot of time when you are creating lessons if you have all of the images already in Word. They transfer nicely to PowerPoints and SmartBoard programs.

Buyer re: 1st Grade Spelling Word Handwriting Practice
How do we get it customized to our specific spelling lists?
October 26, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Not Your Average Classroom
If you have a particular set of words you want, I will make the document (lists and flashcards) with those words. You can send me a list of 160 words, which will be broken into the 20 lists of 8 words default format I have here - or you can have the numbers of words/lists customized too if you prefer something different.

This option is great for teachers who have a particular set of words they like to use throughout their school year.

You can paste the words right into the Q&A section or email them to me at psgoulet88 gmail

Once I see them in my inbox it should take me about two days before I get the document altered and posted. It used to take me one night but now I'm in grad school I make no overnight promises :) You will see it listed as "customized 1st grade spelling bee" and listed as $9.99

HI! I downloaded the packet and the pages are blurred at the top. Additionally there are no words to trace on the trace page;-( Can I receive a correct copy by email?

You do not have an updated version of Adobe

from TpT: "If you purchased a PDF and it is blurry after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry, that's because you are still opening it with Preview!"

Catherine Hall  (TpT Seller) re: Ender's Game Pre-Reading Guide - Before You Read - Getting Started
This is a great activity, but I would love to know what science fiction choices you used as clips.

Not Your Average Classroom
Totally up to you. I didn't know what would be relevant to other teachers. Some districts don't allow use of youtube, and some teachers prefer to reference movies that are familiar to them.

The easiest thing to do would be to show trailers. Ideally you will show clips that involve droids, blaster fire, space ships, aliens, perhaps an oppressive government, clones, prehistoric animals or monsters, etc.

Star Wars, Star Trek, Planet of the Apes, Star Gate, Gattaca, Deep Impact, Bicentennial Man, or anything sci-fi will work.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I teach regular high school biology, a collaborative art biology class, anatomy/physiology, and AP biology. I have taught middle school science, though most of my experience is high school. I spend my summers tutoring younger grade levels and have developed quite a lot of curricula and activities for all grade levels in all subjects.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to use PBL's, case studies, games, art projects, and anything that might be fun. I like to have fun while I teach just as much as my students like to have fun while they learn. So I am constantly thinking of new things to do!
