Hi Sheila,
First, thank you for taking time to do these PowerPoints. Those that download these greatly appreciate all your hard work! Question: When I download these PPs, they download as Adobe files and not as PPs. I can't convert it to a powerpoint as it is password protected. Any solutions?

Again, thank you for your time and effort! :)

Sheila, Our facebook page is called DonorsChoose Anonymous. We are one of about 15 giving pages that help the DonorsChoose community of teachers fund project. We donate to each others projects and classrooms and at times like now we are running a contest where we are giving away $$ in the form of DC donations as well as many TPT products from various sellers. I personally got into contact with Deanna Jump who is donating a $15 product of the winners choice. The last time we did this contest the people who won TPT products became buyers of the TPT store they won from. THis is also a great way for others to get to know your work.

I have emailed my collegues about your wonderful work. They told me they were looking for a fathers day set and another teacher wanted a summer fun set. YOU HAVE BOTH so shared this link with them. The graphics are so cute! I am fond of so many items and saved you. I am moving to a new (larger) room in Sept and I probably would need some things. I also wanted to know if you were interested in giving away one of your products on my giving page. I am an admin for a site called DonorsChoose. I do not know if you are familiar with this but it is GREAT! I have done this before and the TPT seller informed me that she had a nice handful of new customers after our contest and her give-a-way for our page. The people who won were interested in other things and began to buy. Just let me know if you are interested. Come like my page at DonorsChoose Anonymous.

That's weird.

If you are unhappy with your purchase I can try to put a ticket in with the TpT tech department.

Yes, I do understand. The issue is that the units, which is pencil cases, does not lead down that path. If the unit was money it would work. I thought the answer to the question "Do you know the total?" was asking if you know the total number of units. The answer is no because we do not know the total number of pencil cases.

SHeila-I just stumbled onto your site and absolutely LOVE your materials. I mean all of them are fabulous and VERY well made!!! I am currently saving up to get all of them. They are THE BEST real pictures out there- really!!!!

Anyway- I was about to purchase your bundle of real pictures for science sorts- however I also love the power points that you have. I like that you have the individual bundle of the printable and pwer point together but then I don't get as much of a deal with the printables. Would you consider selling an additional bundle of all of the powerpoints that go with the printables, etc from the same topics??? That way you would have a printable bundle and a power point bundle!!!

I think that it would really be beneficial to me kids and many other teachers as well. Please let me know so that I can decide how to purchase.
Thanks so much for all that you do for our kids-Lacy

Buyer re: Living and Non Living Things PowerPoint
I downloaded the power point on my school computer - and I went to download it on my home computer (so I could get some questions ready for my formal observation tomorrow) and I wasn't able to download it on my home computer - am I only able to download it once? Or do I not have the program that I need to download it? If it is the latter - what program do I need to download it? Thanks - it really is a great power point.

Hi! You should be able to download the PowerPoint as many times as you want. I used the PowerPoint program so as long as you have that you should be ok. I would try downloading it again and see if that helps. If you're still having problems, contact the TpT tech team and see if they can help.
Thanks!

Sheila, there is a spelling error in the emergent reader in your President's Day packet. It is on the first page (pesident) it would be awesome if you could fix this for the next time I use this. I found it in all the readers. Thanks for the cute unit.

I use your fonts for most of my products (since I discovered it), especially "mint", because it's so clear for young learners to read. Right now I'm working on an intervention for struggling learners and the only letters that are keeping me from using your font are the "s" and "g" because they almost close at the bottom part. I really want to use your font, because it's the best there is, but I'm worried the students who will be working with this will get confused with the "s" and "g", so then I'd have to use another font. Is there any way you could make the "s" and "g" more open at the bottom in "mint"? I would be willing to re-buy the font and even the package. If not, no worries, I thought I'd ask just in case.

I'm glad you asked this because I think the "s" and "g" have been bothering me also! Lol
Yes, I'll fix those letters and update the unit. No need for you to purchase it again...you get all the updates if any items you purchase on TpT for free. Just check your "My Purchases" page and watch for the red blinking "Download updated unit" sign and you're good to go! I'll let you know here when I've completed the update.
Thanks!

We have something called Writing Wall of Fame at our school, and I would like to use the groundhog day writing you have for my first graders for this, but it is landscape. Is there anyway you can make the same paper portrait? The one with the writing and the drawing?

Do you have a logo button to credit you? I can't seem to find it in the 'In the Kitchen' font bundle.

No, you can just include a link to my store until I'm able to edit the unit. Thanks for asking!

So what editor does everyone use this font with? I downloaded the font however I do not know how to select the font or load it into MS Word. Any insight would be appreciated.

I really don't know anything about creating smart board activities. I'm really sorry! I can research how to make them but can't promise that I'd be able to get anything uploaded. Sorry!

I love hands-on, engaging materials for my kids. We use lots of manipulatives and I try to always use materials with lots of color, if possible. I also love using real life pictures as much as I can, especially in science, and I try to incorporate that into the science units available in my store.
