Hey Samantha!
I love your short vowels CVC bundle better than any other I have found on TpT! Our 1st grade teaches the CVCe long vowels alone before the vowel teams. We have a week of long i (i_e), long a (a_e), long o (o_e), and long u (u_e). I want to buy your long vowel word work bundle for later in the year when we teach the vowel teams. I was wondering if you have anything available that focuses only on CVCe. I really love your products and would like to be able to use them throughout the whole year!
Thanks,
Deanna

I so appreciate the kind words! I, unfortunately, do not currently have a product that focuses only on CVCe words. They are included in the Long Vowel pack, but not seen separately.

First Grade Schoolhouse has some great sets for CVCe. Here's a link to here CVCe using Long A:

This is going to sound very silly but I am having trouble with the mystery pictures!! Can you please tell me what each of them are? I am thinking that if it is the short a mystery picture it is a picture of something that has a short a in its name??? Many thanks for your help!

Oh haha!!! No, the pictures are just pictures. They will not necessarily be something with that vowel in the name -- though that is a good idea! I don't have access to them this very second to tell you what they are but will get back to you when I do. I hope it will help thought to know that the pictures can be of anything... They aren't limited to that specific vowel.

Thank you for getting back to me! My school has an outside printer system where we upload what we needed printed. They can't print only certain pages and so I needed to be able to have all the parts separate. I totally understand about the copyright, I didn't even think of that! If I could just have all of the different items in seperate PDFs that would be perfect. For example the calendar seperate and the name tags seperate and so on. Then I can send to the printer what I need right now (like I love the name tags but I have some but I would like to use them next year). I hope this all makes sense. My email again is careyc21@gmail.com. Thanks again!

Sorry for the delay. As I am sure you can understand, I have been very busy. I'm sorry to inform you that due to clip art copyrights, I am not able to provide an editable version. I am a little confused on why you would need one as well. When printing, if you do not need all of the pages, can't you set your printer to only print the desired pages? If this does not work for you, I can email the calendar separately. Let me know.

I do not offer them in full pages yet and am on vacation and then headed back to school shortly after we return home. It might not get done for a while. I found that the half page was the perfect size. My kids referenced these all the time and they filled the space under my dry erase board perfectly! I didn't do them full page to begin with because there are so many of them and I figured not too many people would have space for it! I will definitely put it on my to do list, though.

Teach 04 Life  (TpT Seller)
Hello,

I had a question about posting a new file. If your file has more than 20 slides, when you upload it to TpT and your at the last step of downloading thumbnails for previews, will the site only allow you to pick from the first 20 slides even if you have more? I'm just curious because I uploaded a file that was 36 slides, but TpT only allowed me to pick from the first 20 when choosing my thumbnails for previews. I'm hoping all 36 slides are in the actual download.
Thnak you!
July 3, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Samantha Kelly
Samantha Kelly  (TpT Seller)
Yes. If you go with TPT's thumbnails, you are only allowed to choose from the first 20. It's very limiting. However, there is a way to bypass that. You also have the option, before you get to TPT's thumbnails, to choose your own four thumbnails. You will see four spaces with upload choices.

I only know how to do this if you are creating with Powerpoint. After you've saved your final document, you can go back through again and save it as a "JPEG" file. It will ask if you'd like to save only the current slide or all slides -- choose all slides. This will save your whole powerpoint, as pictures, in a folder in your documents.

Now you can choose any of your "pictures" to feature in your thumbnails!

Hope this helps! :)

OH! ALSO!!! If you're ever concerned about your products, you can download them yourself!! Go to your storefront. Click on the item of concern. Click "Edit" under the download option ... Then at the top, where you would typically upload your file -- you will see the file name in red. That is a clickable link that will download your file... exactly what your buyers would purchase!

The beach balls coordinate with the passes, as well as the umbrellas/beach balls on the name plates. I do not make clip art (though I wish I was that talented and creative!). I simply used coordinating clipart from a pack I purchased in order to make this! I wish I had the ability to edit/update this file for you, however, even if I could find a beach ball that works, I no longer have access to the editable file. My home was broken into last year and my laptop as well as all of my back-up devices were stolen.

I do appreciate you coming to me in the Questions/Answers section! I wish there was some way I could help! Do you feel like the beach ball found at this link is a better match? It is the only other one I could find without purchasing a whole new graphics set.

It's really up to you. For items you're going to hang around the room, I would say you're safe just printing on standard copy paper and laminating. Items that will be handled by kids (like passes, etc.) should probably be printed on a heavier cardstock and laminated. If you don't have a laminator at your school, teacher supply stores will laminate for you at very low costs. Congrats on being back in the regular classroom -- I hope next year goes great for you! :)

Hi Samantha,

Thank you so much for answering. I don't have Microsoft Powerpoint on my computer and had a feeling that was the way to go. I was thinking of purchasing an account with Adobe to make my pdf files, but came across Apache OpenOffice which is supposed to be a good, free program to create presentations with. I'll do more research and see which is the best way to go.

Also, does powerpoint allow you to make a thumbnail preview that shows many documents as smaller versions into one picture?

Sorry for the questions. But thank you so much for all your help :)

Samantha Kelly  (TpT Seller)
I make my previews on a free program called Picasa. Google it. Picasa allows you to make a collage using JPEGS. So, from powerpoint, under "Save As" I choose JPEGS (every slide) and then I can open up those JPEGS in Picasa and arrange them however I want! :) I'm sure, if you got the Apache OpenOffice, it would have a similar function that allows you to save your slides as JPEGS... but I have never used it.

Hi Samantha,

I love your documents! I had a quick question about creating them.
How can you make multiple pages with different backgrounds? I noticed you have a nice cover with cute backgrounds, but then your other pages either have different backgrounds or they are worksheets with no background designs. I'm just starting out with my TpT account, and am wondering how to go about this.

Thank you :)

Samantha Kelly  (TpT Seller)
Hi! First off, Thank you! I so appreciate your kind words!

I make all of my resources using Microsoft Powerpoint. For the backgrounds/frames, I purchase clipart from sellers here on TPT and insert them on pictures. I don't know if you have any experience with Powerpoint, but each page is a "slide" and you can add whatever you want to it! I just insert clipart backgrounds as need be.

I just looked at your Revise and Edit Posters and noticed that they each have the same background. If you wanted to mix up the backgrounds, you could insert a different JPEG onto each slide and stretch it to fit the entire length.

Having rambled on about his, I'm realizing how hard it is to explain in words! I hope I've helped at least a little!

I love your Math Journal Prompts! However, my class was doing the prompt on page 17, and noticed an error. The ones place can't be the answer to 10-8 because it's supposed to be double the tens, which is an even number. I think you might have meant to put the TENS place is the answer to 10-8 because that would be even, and the ones place would then be 4. The answer would be 24. I just thought I'd let you know so you could correct this. :)

Have you tried to re download yet? I changed it the other day, but please let me know if the change didn't process and I can try again! I changed the rhombus card to parallelogram. Thank you for your patience!

Hello Samantha, is there any way you could offer this cover as an editable cover so we can add our own titles to it or change the year of cover? I love this one the best it is so pleasing to the eye

I totally would do that for you, but unfortunately, my house was broken into a few months ago and both my laptop and external hard drive were stolen so I no longer have that file anywhere but on TPT :(

Love the game! Super cute, but one of the cards is labeled, "Rhombus", but there are no examples of a rhombus. It should read "parallelogram" because a rhombus has congruent sides. I'm wondering if you could update the card or make one for me that says "parallelogram"? Thanks so much!

I will take a look at this when I get home today and then update the file. You will be able to redownload for free. Thanks!

Hi,

I purchased the short o file. We did the mystery pic today and no one could figure out what the picture is. Please advise.

Oh dear! I'm sorry you guys couldn't figure that one out... It's a peace sign! Maybe that's a little too "old" for kiddos.

I just realized that it's only a "Partial" peace sign as it is missing the line all the way down the middle. I will be revising this file.. thank you very much for pointing this out! :)
