I love these calendar pages and would like to buy them, but I have a Mac. I do own MS Office for Mac, but it doesn't include Publisher. Any chance you could sell it in a format that would work for me?

Thank you for asking! I have good news and bad news: No, this one is not editable because of the copyright on the clipart. I realize that many teachers need editable versions for the reason you stated so I will make an editable one for teachers within the next seven days (I'm still teaching).

Hi there,

I bought some products from you last week. I guess I didn't read carefully enough, but I bought suffixes, prefixes, AND the package, which turned out to include both of those-- hence I purchased the same thing twice. I like your products but have certainly learned a lesson about reading more carefully.

If it is any consolation, you have my permission to share the extras with another teacher of your choice. And... at least the hefty purchase gave you some TpT credits (that's always a plus!) - Nyla.

Nyla's Crafty Teaching
Nyla's Crafty Teaching  (TpT Seller)
Hi, I was wondering if the black and white template was showing up misaligned only on the screen. If so, zoom in and see if it does not correct itself. Sometimes, a zoomed out page can make lines appear to be shifted. If however, you have printed the page and it has come out with misaligned blocks, I am not able to say what the cause of this problem is because I just checked the file myself. Maybe it's a different version of MS Word that is the issue. This sounds like a tech issue especially since you say that partial pictures are showing, so I would suggest that you contact Customer Support and let them check the quality of the download for you. Please let me know if you are able to get the assistance you need from them, if not, I will email it to you perhaps as a pdf file and word file. - Nyla.

GradeThree   (TpT Seller) re: Elapsed Time Rulers - 12 hour and 24 hour Time Spans
Hi, I just purchased this product and when I printed the rulers, the numbers were cut off., so if I join the rulers together, it will be missing part of the ruler. I would appreciate it if you could resize the slides and resend to me. Thank you so much.

Nyla's Crafty Teaching  (TpT Seller)
The longest ruler has to be printed on legal sized paper (8.5 x 14). That was probably the one that got cut off. This is the only way to guarantee that it will work. If you print it out on a smaller scale via your printer settings, that can work too but I would prefer that you have it in it's true size so that your students can see the small hours and minutes clearly. I hope you get through.

Thank you for trying my products Kathy. The programs I use are MS Word and Power Point. I have also used Adobe Illustrator for heavy graphics but it is a bit difficult to navigate when you are just stating out. There's also Inkscape, which is a free program you can Google and download but I haven't gotten around to learn how to use it so I cannot give feedback on it as yet. For this school term, I have been busier than ever so I haven't started any projects for a while but whenever I get the chance I think I'll be purchasing clip art rather than making it. It all comes down to time availability for me. I hope that you get through, I wish you all the best with it. Try different things until you find one that's right for you.

Thank you, I'm glad you like it. I can work on that from next week for you. (Right now I'm correcting test papers and getting report books ready). However, there is one problem, the file, as it is, cannot hold anymore heavy graphics because it will exceed the upload limit. I know this because it is a recent upload and it actually had additional pages of bigger cards for the third item. And I had to take those out for it to upload. So Should I do it as a separate poster set? What do you think?

It must be an Adobe problem. You may want to try updating your Adobe Reader. Here is what TpT tells us to do: First, if the PDF you purchased is blurry and showing black smudges, you need to upgrade your ADOBE READER is all. If you are on a Mac and still having the same issue, it's absolutely because you are still opening it with PREVIEW and not ADOBE READER. To solve, when you go to open the file, you need to actively select to open it with Adobe Reader, because the Mac will automatically open it with Preview if you don't say otherwise. So in your Finder Window, highlight the file and then click on the tool in the top of the Finder Window that looks like a sprocket or something, then choose ‘Open With’ and then ‘Other,’ then select Adobe Reader. Let us know it's solved with a follow up message so we know you're all set.
If the file you purchased is not opening for you at all, it's likely because you do not have the right application to open it! For example, to open ZIP FILES on a PC, you need something like WINZIP (http://www.winzip.com/trialpay.htm) to open it. If you have the old version of Microsoft Office but purchased a DOCX file or a PPTX file, you just need to download and install the converter here (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=3). If you don't recognize the file extension on the file you purchased, do a Google search for "How to open a .notebook file" for example.
You can try the FAQ as well.

Buyer re: Base 10 Block Clipart Set
I was wanting to put the clip art into a word document so that my students can cut them out to use as manipulatives to help with addition/subtraction with regrouping. I loved the color choices to make it easier for them to see the differences in place values. When I click on one of them they open in a Windows Live Gallery pop-up and won't let me copy to paste in document. How would you suggest I get them into a word document? I needed them to be able to cut multiple copies to create the math problems and be able to physically move them when solving to see the regrouping process. Thanks for any help so that I can use the beautiful images to help my students. It is Friday, September 6th, I was hoping to create over the weekend and have them ready for students to cut on Monday.

Hi Karen, thank you for contacting me. To insert them into Word, right-click on the image icon and select 'Open with', then a drop-down menu will appear, choose 'Microsoft Office 2010'. If that option is not there, choose 'Paint'. In Microsoft Office 2010 click on 'edit', then 'copy'. In paint, click on 'select', select the object by dragging a box around it, then click on 'edit', then 'copy'. The final part would be to go into Word, then click on 'edit', then 'paste'. Then the object would appear there on the page.
That's one method.
An easier way is to start from Word, click on 'Insert', then click on 'picture', then choose the file from wherever it is stored on your computer like maybe your 'Downloads' folder. Open the file, choose the image, then select either 'open' or 'insert', then the image will open up in your Word Doc. I hope you get through with this. :)

Nyla's Crafty Teaching
Nyla's Crafty Teaching  (TpT Seller)
I have good news! When you print the pdf, there is a check box that prompts you to let it 'fit to scale'. Do not check this box. Some printers make this adjustment automatically which put the scale slightly off because you would really want the scale to print at 100%. Always select 'Actual size' when printing. I can relate to what you went through because the same thing happened to me the first time that I printed it out. Then I realised that I just had to change the print settings so do not worry! I included an extra print guide sheet and I added a page with rulers on it that can be printed and photocopied so that each child can have one. These printable rulers will print at the same scale that the cards do, so if the scale is still off for you, the printable rulers would be what your students can use to complete the measuring activities.

Pamela A. re: Measurement Task Cards for mm and cm
I think that these are an awesome idea, however, they are not printing to scale. I printed them and then measured them with a ruler and they are off. What do you suggest I do?

When you print the pdf, there is a check box that prompts you to let it 'fit to scale'. Do not check this box. Some printers make this adjustment automatically which puts the scale slightly off because you would really want the scale to print at 100%. Always select 'Actual size' when printing. I can relate to what you went through because the same thing happened to me the first time that I printed it out. Then I realised that I just had to change the print settings so do not worry! I included an extra print guide sheet and I added a page with rulers on it that can be printed and photocopied so that each child can have one. These printable rulers will print at the same scale that the cards do, so if the scale is still off for you, the printable rulers would be what your students can use to complete the measuring activities.

I think you have a couple of typos-wanted to let you know before leaving feedback:
invertibrate should be invertebrate and fledgeling should be fledgling.

thanks!

I fixed them and I also did the following:
The entire file is now in one Pdf document and no longer a zipped file.
In the third document, I removed the small cards but kept the larger cards. I did this to reduce the file size so that I could upload it as a pdf. (Everyone seems to prefer the larger cards for that activity anyway). - Nyla.

Thank you so much for the compliment.

I have fraction strips for fractions, decimals and percents. It may be advanced but it is purely visual. Here's the link: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Fraction-Strips-for-Fractions-Percents-and-Decimals

There's also this for $2.00, also very visual: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Fraction-Decimal-and-Percent-Sorting-and-Matching-Activities

I hope you find what you're looking for at TpT!

Hi Cara, I used an html code generated by photobucket. Luckily for me, at the time that I did it, it used to work. Now, when I insert the code, nothing shows, only blank line space. TpT probably changed their coding algorithms or something. But you can still try.

I can't guarantee that it will work but I hope it helps. I learned this and other useful information by being a TBTS - Teaching Blog Traffic School (by Charity Preston from the Organized Classroom Blog) - member. This is a link to it in case you would like to check it out: http://ow.ly/imBky

Is this part of the 3rd grade common core?

I researched the criteria for the third grade common core and this is what I found:

1. Reason with shapes and their attributes.
2. Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
3. Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.

It seems that it only deals with 2D shapes. I have a unit for #2 above, it is found here:

I really appreciate your thorough response. That's exactly what I was trying and when I insert the code the same blank space shows up. :-(

On a happier note, I actually just joined TBTS a couple weeks ago! Thanks for referring me though!

Might it be possible to provide a blank page to add other pairs, e.g., none-nun, one-won, earn-urn, blew-blue, made-maid, knot-not, ring-wring, close-clothes, find-fined, bite-byte, carat-carrot, brake-break, way-weigh, choral-coral, wood-would, weave-we've, read-reed, read-red, etc.? Or to provide an additional package with more?

Thanks for your extra effort. Actually was unaware that either cheeses or sponges have pores. Just wondering whether your students know this - or if that is part of the learning process. Certainly didn't mean for you to buy other clipart products, etc.

Okay then (smile). Well not every student would have the same experiences. They learn from each other, pick up new information through questioning, discussion or their own research. One of the favorite moments is seeing them learn these extra bits of information because children are so curious, they want to know everything. So for most, it would be part of the learning process.

The image of the cheese used was the only one available (in cheeses). Purchasing a food set from a graphics provider would have raised the price of this product significantly. I have to think about the pricing as well. Originally, I didn't want to use cheese because of the same reason you mentioned - not every cheese would have pores (at least not visible to the eye). Before, I could not find any clip art image of a sponge for commercial use but I fell in love with the cheese! Anyway, I'm putting in a sponge there for you now. I really hope that it is what you would prefer.

You may want to try updating your Adobe Reader. Here is what TpT tells us to do: First, if the PDF you purchased is blurry and showing black smudges, you need to upgrade your ADOBE READER is all. If you are on a Mac and still having the same issue, it's absolutely because you are still opening it with PREVIEW and not ADOBE READER. To solve, when you go to open the file, you need to actively select to open it with Adobe Reader, because the Mac will automatically open it with Preview if you don't say otherwise. So in your Finder Window, highlight the file and then click on the tool in the top of the Finder Window that looks like a sprocket or something, then choose Open With and then Other and then select Adobe Reader. Let us know it's solved with a follow up message so we know you're all set.
If the file you purchased is not opening for you at all, it's likely because you do not have the right application to open it! For example, to open ZIP FILES on a PC, you need something like WINZIP (http://www.winzip.com/trialpay.htm) to open it. If you have the old version of Microsoft Office but purchased a DOCX file or a PPTX file, you just need to download and install the converter here (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=3). If you don't recognize the file extension on the file you purchased, do a Google search for "How to open a .notebook file" for example.
You can try the FAQ as well.

If none of this works, you can email me at gilliannyla(at)gmail(dot)com and I'll email it to you directly.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching since 2005 at different primary levels in Trinidad and Tobago. I love to express my creativity in the classroom; if I'm having fun, then it makes learning fun for my students. My secret formula is having a positive classroom environment, a lot of humor and an infectious smile! Teaching allows me to experience the joys of seeing the world through a child's eyes.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use art and humour and hands on activities as much as possible. Students appreciate the creativity, it grabs their attention. It also helps them to remember what they learned in the long term.
