I LOVE your Guided Reading packet. My students utilize your Reading Strategy character cards, but forget to practice using them when they are at home. The parents are asking about the character cards as a reference and I would love to send it home as a poster. Have you ever considered turning the characters and their explanations into a 1 page poster to go home?

Hi there! I am having trouble displaying this on my computer. After about page 50, I keep getting a FATAL ERROR message that says OUT OF MEMORY. My computer still has 599GB of free memory so I don't know what is going on. I have Windows 7 on my computer. I have tried this several times, but the same thing keeps happening. Any suggestions as to what I could do to open the whole file? Thanks!

I've tried and tried and tried tonight to get my edited documents to print in Keynote on an iMac and it prints in landscape format and the program won't allow me to change it to portrait. So, I tried saving it as a PDF and still get a tiny thing no matter what size I ask it to print. I'm really frustrated, because there seems to be no point to customizing all this if I can't print it correctly. Any suggestions?

Hello Rachelle,"
I really would like to purchase your mini guided lessons for next school year and maybe even the remainder of this year, but my question to you is this.... would you/could you possible create the font in script? Our school only teaches cursive to our students and all our materials are supposed to support that. Is this something you could do?
Thanks,
Alexandra

Love this product. I feel dumb for asking but on page 2 when you say the layout of the lesson, on the mini-lesson part you say pick one each group. Do you mean one activity for each fluency, comprehension extension, phonics & vocabulary or JUST one of those four things? If all of them, do you do 5-7 minutes/each? Thank you so much!

When I went to buy the product when I got to school this morning it was full price. Is there any way I can still get the 20%. I'm trying to buy a house right now so I am being very frugal!

Hi, Rachelle!
I teach a multiage class, and bought both your first- and second-grade ELA and Math checklists ~ they are wonderful! I copied the second-grade standards into my Springpad lesson-planning program, but the first-grade checklist says it is "secured," and won't let me do the same. Is there any way you can make the first-grade checklist like the second-grade one, where we can copy and paste the standards into our electronic programs?

Thanks!

Hey, Rachelle,
I'm very excited to use your Student Teacher Binder, but I noticed that the welcome letter seems to be missing a couple of words. On slide 8 (of the ppt) it says "You are just as a part of this classroom…" I think it may be missing the words "much a" between "a" and "part". Do you mind checking it?

Amy G. re: Holidays Around the World Part I and Part II {Bundled}
I have a question....I previously purchased Part I and Part II separately last year. When I was searching the other day for something your bundle packed popped up and since it looked different, I thought that it was brand new and didn't bother to go back and check the previous purchases to see if they had just been updated. So, I purchased the bundle only to realize that all I needed to do was to re-download the revised parts since I had already previously purchased these products. Do you know if there's anyway to get my money back for the purchase? I don't in any way want to cheat you out of money you deserve because it was my mistake but I don't know why it didn't alert me when I was trying to purchase that I already owned the items and just needed to re-download. Thanks for any information you send me! I absolutely love these units and have used them the last two years!
