Hi Jackie!

Unfortunately, there are some copyright concerns with the Reading Strategy cards. I am fixing the problem at this moment and hope to have the product back up shortly as soon as I remove the area of concern. I should have them back up by Monday if you don't mind checking back.

They should also work for third. The biggest difference is kinder from the other grades. If you find that you are missing one or two there are blanks that you can print and write on in the set.

I have had several requests for PreK and I would love to do them for y'all. The only problem is that I cannot find TEKS for PreK. I've searched the TEA website and all I can find are growth objectives and they have a range to them which makes it almost impossible to fit them to a format.

If you are using something different from the state than the growth objectives and want to send me a link to where to find them I will do my best to get them up in the next month. I've been unsuccessful in locating anything in my searches though. You can email me a link here or at tonja15@yahoo.com

This is really perplexing if you are able to print other documents. This document download should work fine.

We can try to fix it a couple of different ways. If you are able to print other things that are also in PDF format then this will not work, but its worth a shot. You might need to try downloading from another browser. For instance if you are using Explorer you might try Firefox or Chrome. I know when I download sometimes stuff works better from Firefox. Another way we can handle it is for me to try to email the document to you directly. To do this you will need to email me at tonja15@yahoo.com. I still am concerned that it is an issue with software or printer. I have had other downloads from this today and have used this file myself and this has never been an issue. I will do what I can to make it workable for you though. No one wants to pay for something they can't use and that's understandable.

Sorry to hear you are having problems. You can look and put the page numbers in or you should be able to make a different selection for printing types on your printer. That sounds like a printer issue so it really just depends on what printer you have. Maybe try printing it from somewhere else? I haven't seen this issue before.

Hello, I have a question about the koala items you have. I absolutely love them. I was wondering if you would be making a newsletter template with the koala and a teacher helps for literacy groups with the koala accents. I am doing a koala theme in my classroom this year.
Another question. I am having difficulty printing the CAFE signs reduced to two pages on one. It is leaving lines through the item. I can print it one to a page but that is too big for the area I have to put the display up. I couldn't leave a question on one of the koala items because the ask a question would not show up.
I appreciate your work and my kindergarten students will really love it too.

Hi Lisa,

I'm not sure why its not printing correctly. I haven't ever tried to print them smaller. I would have to look into it and get back to you.

I actually plan on expanding the koala theme shortly and adding a bundle that has about fourteen items in it. The only bundle I have up at the moment is the ladybug theme. I can add the Teacher Helps as something else as well. (I haven't made them much because they don't seem to sell as well as some of my other products. I have a couple of projects ahead of this one that I am trying to get done at the moment. My time is a little short with the school year approaching. (I'm leaving kinder and going to third grade.) I will work to get these up quickly for you though.

I will let you know if I find an answer to the printing issue. You might try reducing it down and printing one to a page.

Hope your year is starting off well!

Hi Carrie,

At this time I am not altering my CAFE materials and adding to it. The CAFE posters accompany the Reading Strategy cards I offer. The cards are divided into four categories to help with literacy centers. To add a letter would require additions to the Reading Strategy cards and I will need to research that before adding to it in order to make sure the product is top notch for all who are using it. Sorry for any inconvenience and thanks for the tip. I will check into it in the future.

Hope your year is off to a good start!

Do you have the CAFE toppers in any other colors besides the blue/poka dot. I'm getting your ladybug set that names the concepts and would like it to match the CAFE topper. Thanks! Love your creations. Marcy

Yes! :-)

There are 10 plus designs. If you look in my reading section you will find all the options. For every set of reading strategy cards there is a set of free toppers. There is a ladybug set there. I actually have a ton of ladybug products: word wall, a theme bundle with alphabets and number line and desk plates etc. It's one of my favorite sets.

Hope this helps! Enjoy! :-)

The second grade set will have the new TEKS only. I won't have a revised set available. I hope to have second grade up by the end of the week. I have been out of town the last two weeks so I'm a little behind on my deadline. :)

All of the word walls are K-3. They have all of the Dolch words for Preprimer on up.

Thanks,

Hi! I really like this set of clips.
Does it also include B&W or would I be able to use by removing the color ? (Sometimes when I try to remove the color the graphics are not as clear.)
Thanks for your help.

Hi! I absolutely love your 1st grade TEKS Illustrated and Organized! Will you be doing a 2nd grade version, and if so, when will it be available?

Hi,

Yes! They are coming. I had hoped they would be up by this weekend, but I've been out of town and haven't had time to finish them. I will be back home this weekend though and I will work on finishing them. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping to get them up by the beginning of this coming week. If not, by the end of the week for sure!

Thanks for checking. Follow me to get the update and know when they're out. :-)

Thanks!

Would you be able to tell me where you got the silvery border swirl on the ladybug cafe signs?

Buyer re: Free Daily 5 CAFE Posters - 1&2 Grade Seeing Stars
I like the seeing stars cafe posters but i was wondering if you could create the same style but make the words all solid black not half gray and half black?

Hi!

Unfortunately, I have chosen to leave my free products as they are at this time. If not, it causes a lot of requests for alterations that take away from my original designs. It should print all black if you haven't tried yet. I have the same shadowing on the set I use and it appears all black, it just gives it some flair. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Hope your year gets off to a great start!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have had the great opportunity to teach for the past eleven years. It has been a blast! In that time I have taught Kinder, First, Second, Third and Fourth grade. I have my Bachelors in Elementary Education, my Master's in Educational Administration, and I am working on my dissertation to finish my PhD in Curriculum and Instruction.

MY TEACHING STYLE

The use of hands on activities that engage students while allowing them to be self learning can be a daunting task. However, in order to adequately prepare our students for the world that awaits them in their adulthood, it is necessary. I enjoy creating activities to make learning fun for students. Its equally as rewarding to create visually appealing classroom helps that work in my classroom and then to be able to share them with all of you!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Member of Delta Kappa Gamma: Iota Pi Chapter Served on many district committees and have received District honors for curriculum creation. 2012 I received "A Touch of Class" Award for help in the Mathematics Department from my district. 2011 award for Excellence in Reading Scores on State Assessment

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelors in Elementary Education (EC-4), Masters in Educational Administration, and PhD Curriculum and Instruction (in progress) Texas Certifications: EC-4 Generalist Certification ESL Certification Principal Certification

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love to create new and innovative activities for the classroom! Have something you are looking for and can't find it? Send me an email and I will see what I can do to help you out! I hope you enjoy my products and if you have any questions feel free to ask! Thanks for shopping my store! :-) Tonja
