Dene Mitzel  (TpT Seller) re: Lunch Count and Attendance for Smartboard - BUNDLE for ENTIRE YEAR
Hello. I had been looking at your bundle that had 5 lunch choices, then had to get out of TpT. I then went back to look for it, and ended up downloading this one, when I realized it only has three lunch choices. I need 5. Is there a way I can edit it to make 5? Or could I possibly download the five column one? Also, when I try to drag down other lunch choices it goes behind the chart instead of on top. How do I fix this?Thanks, Dene' Mitzel

Hi! Thanks for the email. No worries I can totally help you out. Please email me at leighmajer@yahoo.com and I can get you the five choice and you won't have the sliding behind issue on that one. I thought I had fixed that on the 3choice but guess I did not upload the revision. I will do that now as well. There are literally a gazillion things to order on those slides. Thanks again. I have a break this afternoon so will get you the 5 choice as soon as I hear back from you. Have a great day:)

I currently own many of your calendar packs. My question is only found you around December. I am currently planning for next year and want to purchase the calendars that I am missing. I am also interested in a few others. I am curious if you have some sort of special if I purchase multiple. I would love to spend endless amounts of money but I can't right now. I can buy a little at a time if I need to.

Hi Gina! Sorry for the delay in response - I usually answer right away but was in self imposed isolation every day after school trying to get the April Language and Math Bundle completed:) There just aren't enough hours in the day:) I would like to bundle the calendars and was thinking about it to offer a discounted price but would need to finish May and then could look at the full year of calendars and update the dates for 2014-2015 year and bundle them both by quarter and by year. If you email me at leighmajer@yahoo.com we can try to work something out in the meantime for the months in particular you are wanting.
Thanks so much for visiting my store! I love using smartboard files in my room and more importantly I love the independence and high motivation I see in the children!!! If you are looking into other products in my store, might I recommend the Spring Sentence Builders - I use them at Literacy Stations/Daily 5 - and the kids synthesize soooooo much learning during this time - sight words, punctuation, comprehension, capitalization etc.

Hi Heidi! That is an awesome idea! There is currently not a hard copy page for students to write the answers they have created but I love that idea and will work on putting one together tonight or tomorrow and get it posted as an update to the product. You can email me at leighmajer@yahoo.com or just look for the update note on the product description to see when it is up there. I am also working on a pirate sentence builder pack now - too.much.fun! The kids love the spring one so am hoping they will like the pirates too!

Technically they can be modified but it would be a lot of work for you to do. I have done a custom order for someone in the past with four lunch choices so if you would like to email me at leighmajer@yahoo.com I can email you a sample pic of that order and see if it fits your needs. :)

Hi:). Thanks for writing. I created those last year and need to update April, May, June as I have done for February and March of this year so they reflect the current calendar year and also the new slides I started adding in August. I just realized I made April and June inactive but not May. If you purchased May please be on the lookout for an email at some point with the updated/revised file. It's still a great functional product but I'd like to make sure you get the version I create/tweak with a few additional bells and whistles! Have a great week and hope you get to enjoy Spring Break! (5 more school days for us!)

i downloaded the notebook application to purchase your product and was unable to open it after I purchased your product. Is there any other way to open it? The notebook application is also telling me that it is a 30 day free trial. Not happy with your product.

Smart Kinder Kids  (TpT Seller)
Hi there:) I'm sorry you stated you are not happy with my product but I'm thinking more you are frustrated with the technology/connectivity issues since it sounds like you haven't been able to open the product file. I'd love to help you troubleshoot your issue. Do you have a Smartboard in your classroom? My files are labeled for use with Smartboards both in the title along with the description and under the resource description. Because this is a Smartboard file the software needed is Smart notebook as indicated in the product description. If you have a Smartboard at your school it would come with that software and you shouldn't need to do a 30 day trial. If you downloaded the notebook software on your home computer the file should open but you would not be able to use all of the touch functions etc until you used it on your Smartboard at school. As I mentioned, I would like to help you troubleshoot this issue but would need to know a little more about what you are dealing with. If you are new to Smartboards there is at times a steep learning curve that I and most people I know had to go through and it could be frustrating at times but that would be a separate issue from my actual product....that would be more of a technical issue which I would be willing to try and help you troubleshoot or you could check with your campus or district technology person. The product and the technology used to open it are two different issues. I am wondering if perhaps you don't have a Smartboard and were not aware my products are for use with Smartboards. You can email me at leighmajer@yahoo.com if you would like more help. Also my blog http://Smartkinderkids.blog spot.com has video tutorials once you get up and running with your Smartboard to help get familiar with the way the technology works. Thanks for contacting me and I hope I can help you further.
Sincerely,
Leigh
P.S. If your purchased this product in error and don't have a Smartboard in your classroom please contact me so we can see about getting you a refund.

Yes that is a bummer! Thanks for getting back to me! I'm excited to hear and hopefully learn about Mimio boards...are they kind of like a Smartboard? I will have to research that and see what software those boards use to see if we can convert the files or if we would need to create from scratch. I hope you have fun with your new Mimio though and I'll definitely let you know if I ever create anything for them. Cheers!

I am so sorry for the mix up...I uploaded the 2014 calendar yesterday and added 10 new slides. I added a note to previous buyers that the file had been revised and updated to the 2014 calendar. Since the new pictures showed up replacing the 2013 preview pics and the upload went through I assumed all was good on the update and so I made the file active on the site last night. I didn't know there was a problem until I just received this note from you and another follower. I feel so bad that this happened and will contact TpT to let them know. In the meantime I have tried the update again on the TpT site and it looks as though it went through. I will email out a revision note and you should get that email and be able to download it. If you have any issues with that please email me at leighmajer@yahoo.com and I will email it to you directly. I worked on the file for 9 hours yesterday so I really want to make sure you get the right file. I apologize again for the mix up. Thanks for writing to me.

Thanks for writing:). I am not familiar with Promethean boards and just create them for Smartbord using SMART notebook software. As such I label all of my products Smartboard in the title description so people know that is what they are intended for. I have heard there is a way to use them but I think you have to download a converter program online which I think is free but honestly I don't know anything about. If you google search it you might be able to find out. I would suggest downloading one of my freebies in my store and seeing if it works on your board.

Hi! I love your products and recently had an ActivBoard installed in my classroom. I am willing to pay for your Lunch Count bundle pack or simply buy one to use all year but I would like the following choices: Lunch from Home, School Lunch Choice #1, School Lunch Choice #2, School Lunch Choice #3. I would love a primary polka dot theme or even the kids back to school theme is fine. Do you have a flip chart with these choices already or would you be willing to make for me? Wording I provided doesn't need to be exact, but I need a sack lunch, and three school choices (which vary day to day). Thanks so much! Cindi at cindipacecca@live.com

Hi Staci - I am not sure what your comment means - I would love to help troubleshoot but am not sure what is wrong because I used it this morning and it worked great - do you mean the actual calendar slide? Are you meaning slide #5? Those numbers are usually individually locked down but this month I secured the entire calendar but slide #6 is still the blank calendar that has the individual number cards you can configure either as a whole month or day by day and can also use in future years. Please let me know if this is what you are referring to. My goal is always 100% satisfaction so I will help and fix whatever you need I just want to make sure I understand.

Hi! Thanks for writing to me:). I'm glad you like the product and would love to help you troubleshoot. My email is leighmajer@yahoo.com and you can email me directly but I'm wondering since you said you are new to smartboards if you downloaded this to your computer and are trying to manipulate it that way or did you open it up on your actual Smartboard? You can only move objects with your fingers on the actual Smartboard. If that is not the issue then I wonder if your board needs to be calibrated. If you open the file on your actual Smartboard and things aren't moving then try pushing the two grey buttons in the center of your board (on the tray between the Smartboard markers)...when you do this a grey screen covers your Smartboard with nine dots. You use a Smartboard marker to touch the center of each dot from top left, middle left, bottom left, top center, middle center etc until you get down to bottom right. After you have clucked the inside of each circle you will be brought back to the screen you were last on and the board will be calibrated and things should move correctly. If that doesn't help please email me and we can troubleshoot further!
I'm excited you are eager to learn more about your board. If you are interested you can check out my blog I recently started and join to follow it...I have several tutorial videos on there that will teach you basic things about how to use your Smartboard. The blog is

Hi Smart Kinder Kids!

Thank you so much for your creativity! I love your store. I recently purchased Lunch Count and Attendance for Smartboard - BUNDLE for ENTIRE YEAR, and noticed you said you may special changes for a fee. I would love to know if it is at all possible to set up lunch choices with more options and three locked in categories? If you want to discuss privately I am happy to do so via email at kellygodmar@gmail.com or whichever works best for you. Thank you in advance for any possibility. I love your creations! Amazing! :)

Are you going to have a January Calendar Pack soon. My school just installed a smart board in my classroom over Thanksgiving Break and I am looking for ways to use it in my class. I like what you have but don't want to start with one style only to have to change so quickly as I am learning to use it.

Thanks for writing to me:) I have already started the design and layout of the January calendar - I am having so much fun with clip art right now! It should be up within a week or so - they take a super long time to make due to the amount of clip art and screen shots that need to be taken but I'm already hard at work!~
I love that you are excited about your new Smartboard - it really has revolutionized not only my Whole Group teaching, but also my small group and intervention groups. If you haven't had a chance yet please sign on to be a follower because then you will be notified when the new calendar is posted. I also have a lot of freebies on my site and if you want to watch some free online tutorial videos you can swing on over to my blog http://smartkinderkids.blogspot.com. I had to teach myself how to use my board for the most part and developed the blog to help save teachers the time and frustration I sometimes felt trying to learn the Notebook software.

I'm hard at work for it but they take about 12 hours to create between design, drafting, revising and finalizing them with all the screen shots. I have the general theme and design mapped out.

Hi:). Thanks for writing to me. Notebook software does not allow you to save as a PDF...you are only allowed to save as a .notebook file since it is for Smartboard and you cannot save as anything else (eg .docx or .pdf). You can email me at leighmajer@yahoo.com if you have further questions. I could always take a screen shot of the slides and insert those into a word doc and save as a PDF but then of course you wouldn't be able to move them around the page. I'm happy to chat with you more if you'd like. Just send me an email:). Happy thanksgiving!

I love these calendar packs and so do my little ones!! Can we expect the December pack soon?
In reference to the question about the hundreds chart, I was having the same issues, but it was a problem with my computer and the flash files.

Yay! I'm glad you love them. My kids love them too:) I've just started the December calendar and am flying home to Canada to see my family tomorrow so hoping to get some good work done on the plane. It will be up by early next week but I have my fingers crossed that I can get it posted by Sunday night:) depends how much I get done on the plane and how much my little nephew lets me work once I get there! So were you able to get the flash files worked out? Are you working on a Mac?

Dear Leigh ~ Last week I purchased your November calendar and love what it has. I am having problems with the 100's chart not working. Any suggestions? Also the birthday graph isn't showing how to use it. Thanks for your help!!!

Hi Janski! I'm glad you love the November calendar:) Hmmmm.....in terms of the hundreds chart you should just be able to click on any number with your finger or a pointer and the number switches over from grey to red. Down at the bottom if you just put your cursor on the box next to "display multiples of" and then type a number like 5 - it will automatically flip all of the multiples of 5 over. Please try again and if that is not working for you, you can email me at leighmajer@yahoo.com and we can try and troubleshoot some more. I want to make sure you are 100% satisfied with the product....that's always my goal!
In terms of the birthday graph you can use it however best meets your classroom needs. There is a green pull tab in the top right hand side of the birthday slide to give general instructions. You may want to save this slide onto a new blank slide so that you can save the changes and not have to recreate it each day. Basically you take the little present in the bottom left hand corner on the pink square (that is infinitely cloned) and you build a graph of the kids' birthdays. Hope that helps. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions. Have a super day!

Hi Leigh! I love your smartboard calendar packs - i have bought two already and started using them daily with my kindys in October. I was wondering if you have or will be making a December calendar pack. I could not find one on here. Thanks!

Hi Jolene! So glad you are using and liking them! I love using them too and sometimes I coy and paste slides into new files so the kids can use particular ones during Math Workshop time. I'm already at work on the December one and hoping to get it posted earlier. They take a long time to design and create but I'd like to get December, January and February all up in November. Hope you have fun with the turkeys! I had fun making it.

Are the words editable in these files? Unfortunately our district uses its own word list. I'd love to make some mixed up word lists but love your design to start with.
September 22, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Smart Kinder Kids
Smart Kinder Kids  (TpT Seller)
Thanks so much for your email. The words are not editable in the sense that when you have that many "moving pieces" on a board (each individual letter box counts as two moving pieces even though they are "grouped") the entire board tends to move slow or in a delayed fashion so when I do is form the boxes and letters and then take screen shots of each individual box and reinsert them - what that means is that the letter "a" inside a box for example - is now one moving piece instead of the "a" AND the "box" - if that makes sense....in terms of your district's list - is is Treasures, Fry or Dolch? If so, the words I have on there are Treasures, but I also have a Fry list and I am working on the Dolch one. They take a long time to make but the pay off is big because you can use them throughout the year for whole group, small group or individual work. If your district's list is not one of the ones mentioned above I would suggest creating it from scratch or we could see if you would like me to do a custom order for you.
Thanks for writing and I hope to get that October Calendar up sooner than Tuesday if possible:)

Hi Sarah! Thanks for writing to me:) I am working on finishing up the October calendar and would love to have a bundle pack for the calendars - it was my summer goal but we had a family emergency out of town that caused us to not be able to be relaxing in town as I had hoped. I have had several requests for a bundle so am going to try my best to get one together by November *fingers crossed*. I'm so glad you are enjoying September. My kids love them and so do I....it is fun to watch their technology skills blossom as well!
Have a great evening!

Kim S. re: August Calendar Pack for SMARTboard
Hi Leigh! I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE your August calendar for the SMARTBoard! I have a quick question for you. On the weather report slide, I can't get the pictures to move or the words to move into position. I am fairly new to the whole SMARTBoard concept, so I am probably just making a silly mistake. Can you tell me what I need to do in order to move the pictures into the right place each day? By the way, my Pre-Kindergarteners think this is the best part of our day other than recess! I appreciate your reply and look forward to purchasing more calendars! Thank you and many blessings!

Can you please email me at leighmajer@yahoo.com and I will resend the file. I sent out a revised file in August to all buyers when I realized the same oversight when I was using it. There are soooooo many small detailed steps in making these graphic heavy packs and sometimes I accidentally lock or group or in group something by accident. I'm glad you have enjoyed it! My kiddos love them too:). I feel like I could spend so much more time on them but there is never enough time in the day to do everything on the schedule!

Hi Jessica! Thanks for writing:). Yes, the October one is in the works. I hope to have it up by early next week. They take a super long time to make because they are so graphic heavy and there are a few more steps involved with Smartboard files than say word documents that you can just save as PDF files. I am really excited about the October one though and can't wait to finish it up and post it:)

I purchased your product, but it will not open. I get this message, "It is not a supported file type - or file has been damaged." I can't open it.
I download and open other things with Adobe reader all the time with no trouble. Any ideas?

Update... I think I figured out the problem! ;) I feel silly.
I'm trying to open from my home computer which doesn't have SMART software. I should be able to open this on my school computer that my Smart Board is connected to... Right? :) (Both computers have Adobe reader)

Hi:). Thanks for writing. I hope your school year is off to a great start:). I see that you purchased the Smartboard attendance and lunch counts. Those need to be opened with your Smartboard notebook software. Most people don't have that loaded on their home computers. Usually you can get it loaded on your home computer if you get the key code from your campus or district tech person. Otherwise you would just have to wait until you get to school to open using your Smartboard software (Notebook 10 or 11) on your computer there. Hope that helps! Please don't hesitate to write if you have any further questions.
Sincerely,
Leigh

Hi ahdee! Just wanted to let you know the calendar is almost ready to post - I've been working on it most of the weekend - 8 hours already today - these calendars take a very very very long time to make just because I need to do a lot of screen shots to allow the items to move quickly since I make the calendar makes so graphic heavy. Every month I think I am going to make them way simpler with less graphics but I love the design element and the creative process so I always end up seeing what I can do that is fancy and fun! Anyways - I am finishing up the last slides and will post *hopefully* - fingers crossed - by 5pm. That is my goal!!! Hope you are enjoying a great long weekend:)

September is almost finished and will be posted by the weekend though:) thanks for checking in and hope your year is getting off to a great start!

P.S. I'm thinking about posting two September packs.....one that is the same back to school theme as the August one for ppl who start after Labor Day and want back to school theme and one that is apple based for those of us who have already been back in the swing of thing here in August.

Thanks for the kind message. September is almost finished:). I'm planning to have it posted by Tuesday night and by mid September am hoping to have a bundle in place. The nice thing about these packs is that I put a current year calendar but also one with the number/date cards loose so you can reposition them each year for the appropriate days/dates. That way the calendars can be used year to year.

Smart Kinder Kids  (TpT Seller)
Some slides have editable features...all the moving pieces can be switched out. Slides can be deleted or moved around. I pack these calendar packs full of way more than I could ever complete each day during calendar time because I like to have lots of options at my finger tips. In addition to regular calendar items like days of week, weather etc, there are many other slides that incorporate other math and language skills. Each month has some similar items (for example, the calendar itself, tooth tally, birthday graph, weather, etc) but additional slides will be added that build on concepts. I hope that answer helps:). I think you will really enjoy it as there are lots of slides to choose from. Thanks for stopping by my shop and I hope you have a great evening!

Hi Jill! Thanks for writing to me. The columns are locked on there but you could unlock and delete the chart and create your own with 4 columns or try to resize mine and add a 4th column. I also do custom orders so if you would like me to do it for you, I charge $3 for the lunch counts and you could tell me the 4 choices, etc.
If you have any further questions or want me to create a custom one, you can email me here or at leighmajer@yahoo.com.

Sure! I've set aside some time tomorrow to do a few custom orders I have lined up so I will hopefully get yours done as well. Please email me at leighmajer@yahoo.com to clarify if "bringing" means lunch from home. If so I can use the word "bringing" but also attach a lunch box clip art if you'd like:) also...is the cheese sandwich cold or is it a grilled cheese (want to make sure the clip art is correct).

Smart Kinder Kids  (TpT Seller)
Absolutely:) There are only three columns though so you would have to work around that but I have made the "Lunch From Home" and "Plate Lunch" boxes and pictures editable - you can simply delete them and add the ones that are specific to your campus. Inside the pack are instructions on how to personalize the name boxes and you can use the same concept to create your own lunch choices. There is also a slide with extra lunch choices that I use with my kids and those can be edited as well. In addition, the extra lunch choice slide has 3 blank rectangles ready to be customized.
If you have any further questions you can email me at leighmajer@yahoo.com
I also do custom orders so if you end up wanting me to do that you can let me know. I charge $3 to add names and $3 for other customizations like what you mentioned above.
What I do in my classroom is keep the lunch from home and plate lunch the same each day and then switch out the third option depending on the cafeteria menu.
Hope that helps! Have a great day!
Sincerely,
Leigh

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I love teaching and have taught for the past 16 years. I began my career teaching music and didn't think I could ever love anything as much until I began teaching Kindergarten and then that became my new passion. My husband is a pastor and as a result of our ministry we have done the "tour of Texas" as we like to call it. In other words we have lived in DFW, Laredo, Houston and are now back in the DFW area but not before doing a little hop up to Michigan for 2 years! During all that "gypsy travel" as my family likes to call it I have taught music for 6 years, Kindergarten for 8 years and also taught 1 year of 2nd grade and 1 year of 6th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to incorporate music, movement and technology into my daily teaching. I often joke that by 9am each day the kids and I have put on a broadway show with all of our songs and dances to teach our calendar and letter concepts. I also use a great deal of technology to both augment our group learning and provide opportunities for students to engage in small group and individual practice. I have high standards for both myself and my students. We work hard and have fun doing it! I believe that a caring community coupled with a high level of respect is essential for us to reach and exceed our goals. My kids and I work hard at establishing and maintaining that community in our classroom.
