Is there anyway we can have an enlarge version with the TEKS on one page verses two to a page? I have purchased and used your TEKS, but the students can't see them from the board and our administrators are saying they are to small. I will no longer be able to use your version if I can't have it bigger.

I always put mine under my document camera to read them so students could see it, then put it on the wall in a pocket chart. I have had a couple of requests to have a larger version and hope to make it this summer. My schedule just doesn't allow at the moment and the TEKS cards is a huge document. If I enlarge them it will be over 200 pages of printing. I want to make sure that I give everyone a document that uses as little ink as possible since it is so big.

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

I just purchased this product and quickly flashed through the cards. I have a question about the math TEKS: On the TEKS I just downloaded from TEA (revised August 2013 notation), the geometry objectives are K.7-K.9, not K.6 as indicated on the cards I purchased. Please help me figure this out as I am trying to secure the correct standards for a curriculum project. Thank you very much!

I still am not able to print. It's not a printing problem, because I've bought other items and have not had a problem. I really don't want to pay 12.00 for something I cannot access. Is it possible to cancel this purchase and repurchase it to see if that will correct the problem? I really like the TEKS/objective, but want to use what i've paid for.

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.

Good luck! Hope you enjoy them once you are able to get them printed! :-)

My name is Katie Chisholm and I purchased 2 products from you at the beginning of the summer: "Teacher Helps" (has anchor charts, binder organization, student monitoring) and Reading STrategy cards to go with the Daily 5. I purchased them in black and white polkadot w/ a red trim. Well, over the summer I changed my color theme of my classroom to turquoise with black and white polkadots. I have not printed anything yet from either set, is there anyway to exchange them for the different color?

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.

Buyer re: Teacher Helps for Literacy Groups - Polka Dot
Hello! When I print the Read to Self poster (I purchased the Teacher Helps black and white polka dot) I get lines on the page next to the Hold Book - I also printed the Work on Writing and got a blob on the word "does" a line under the letter "o" in look and a vertical line off to the side between the words "times. and words." I printed twice and printed out the other ones and did not have that problem...could you advise?

I'm not sure. It sounds like its a printer issue. I haven't had any problems with this document or concerns such as this. I can print it on mine without issue. Maybe check your settings? Did you by any chance just get a new cartridge for your printer? Sorry it's giving you trouble.

Let me know what you figure out or if I can help some other way.

Hello, is there a way that I can get these in a non-PDF format? I would like to change the background and make the font bigger. Or can I pay the $12 and you email me the illustrations?

Hi,

Due to the restrictions on the commercial clip art I am unable to sell this product in a format that would allow you to make those changes. I would like to offer this product in more themes, but it isn't possible at this time because it is a very time consuming document to create with over 100 slides and 200 plus TEKS. Sorry.

Hope your school year gets off to a great start! :)

Hi Heather!

I really hope to have them done by the end of this week. My goal was to have them uploaded by now, but life has gotten in the way lol. I am shooting for Thursday before I leave town. If it isn't then it will be sometime the next weekend when I return.
:)

Thanks so much for your patience! I promise they're coming!

I purchased the black and white dotted reading strategy cards, and there are two errors: Authors Purpose should be Author's Purpose and Use prior knowledge to confirm meeting should be Use prior knowledge to confirm MEANING. Is there a way you can correct those and send me a new set? Thanks for your help!

Hi, Tonya - Thanks for replying! The set I ordered was bordered in blue. :)

Hi,

I'm so sorry for the error. I don't know how I missed it and you are the first to catch it, so gold star. Can you help me out and tell me which set of polka dot it was. I have two that are black and white, one has a red line around it and the other has blue. I will have to go in and check all of them for this error, but I will do whatever you ordered first to make sure it is correct. You can email me at tonja15@yahoo.com or you can comment here again and I will get them changed and reuploaded for you to redownload. So sorry for any inconvenience.

Thanks!
Tonja :)

Buyer re: Reading Strategy Cards - 1&2 Grade Polka Dot Theme
I just purchased your black and white polka-dotted reading strategy cards. Love them, thanks! I was wondering if there is any way to edit the cards to add different strategies. Thanks.

Hi!

Unfortunately there is not a way to edit the cards. However, you I did include blank cards that you can print and either tape, glue, or write other strategies on so that they have the same background. So sorry. It may be an idea for the future that I will keep in mind.

Absolutely! :-) I have actually started work on them along with a couple of other projects and plan to have them out in the next week or two. My summer has been much busier than planned. Summer is flying by! :-)

Follow me to see when they post. Enjoy the rest of your break and thanks for checking! :-)

Thanx. I was interested only in the cafe and skills, not the Teks. Your stuff is too cute!

Could/would you make the cafe toppers with a bumblebee theme and black and white polka dot choices?

I responded to you other message, but I went to your page and saw you are in Texas. Not sure if you could use them or not, but you might also check on my Illustrated TEKS cards. I only have them up for K and First at the moment, but I have plans to do Second as well this summer. They are cards that show each objective we teach, along with the standard and a picture cue for the kiddos. They are also polka dot themed. Not sure if you have to post your TEKS (we do) but its a big help to most Texas teachers. :-)

Do you have the reading strategies cards available in black with white polka dots?

I do have black and white polka dot products online. I have them in two different accent borders (light blue& red). I can definitely make a bee theme with polka dots however. I have two other themes to get up in the next couple of days, but I will get it up asap. Look for other products to match too. I am working on adding classroom products in all of my themes at the moment so that everything coordinates.

Thanks for checking!

Enjoy!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have had the great opportunity to teach for the past ten years. It has been a blast! In that time I have taught Kinder, First, Second 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

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 I received an award for my Reading scores.

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
