Hi! These are great, but one of the fact and opinion on recycling says the word hate. I had a parent who had a problem with that word being there. I really hadn't thought about it, but don't like might be a better choice of wording there. I just thought I would run it by you.

Hi! Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I would never have thought of that being an issue. Since the opinion doesn't say that they hate someone and just says that they hate the idea of people not recycling, I'm not sure if I will change it.

I love your literacy Centers. They are always the right fit for what my kiddos are working on. I like to get them ready about a month in advance. (I have to plan when to go laminate.) Are you working on some May one. If so I will wait till you post to buy yours! If not I'll hunt and grab someone else's. Thanks for the hard work.

Hi! Thanks Stephanie! I probably won't sell them as a bundle because the file would probably be too large and it makes people made when they have already purchased them if I offered them at a discount price. It also makes it hard to update each file as a bundle. Thanks for asking! Have a great day!

Hi! I just updated them so, hopefully, they will work. I opened them at school and it wouldn't let me print either. However, I opened them at home before I updated them and I could print. I am wondering if something has changed with the settings at school to allow us to print. Could you let me know if these work at school or not?

If you can't download any updated versions, you may need to contact TPT customer service and they can help you get it downloaded to your computer. They are amazing at solving those issues. Please let me know if they are unable to help. Thanks!

Hi there,

I buy a ton of your centers and LOVE them! I was just printing up your March literacy centers and noticed that on both the making words and Golden Verbs that some of the backgrounds are black and a few are white. Is there anyway you could change them both to have white backgrounds on all of the pieces? It just saves me a ton of precious ink! :) Thank you!!!

There are not any words on my editable pages. They are blank with pictures only. When I type my wording it is tiny--maybe a size 6 font. I saw an earlier post with the same question. I am not able to edit the pages on your premade cards with wording. I hope to figure this out so I can have them when we return from winter break. Thank you!

Hmm, I updated them to be a larger font when you typed. The editable pages are blank but should have a larger font when you type. You can't edit on the ones that I typed. When did you purchase? If you purchased them when I first put them out, they were small but I fixed the problem. If you purchased them earlier, please download them again and the problem is fixed. If that doesn't work, please email me at swimmingintosecond@att.net.

I know you have several Treasures Reading units, but because you are in a different state, some of your stories are different. We have the Treasures Reading adoption here in Texas as well. I wanted to know if you would consider doing units on the ones that we have that you don't. For instance, we have the story "Abuelo and the Three Bears." Would you be willing to create one of your units for that? I really love your units and would love to be consistent with using them each week. I bought one from someone else and didn't like it. Please let me know when you are able to. Thanks so much!

I'm looking at both your Morning Routine and Dismissal Routine packages. I downloaded the preview for Dismissal but it actually provided a better overview of the Morning Routine (love the visual and how you displayed the cards!) than the Dismissal Routine. My end-of-the-day is pretty basic (homework, chairs, bus line) so I'm not sure that I'd need this pack. However, I see that it includes 59 pages. Wow! I can't even imagine the possibilities. Before I make the purchase I'm wondering if you could give a few more clues as to what the Dismissal Routine includes: maybe a picture for the Dismissal Routine similar to your Morning Routine picture or even a simple list of routines provided in your product description. Or, if you've discussed this in one of your blog posts, a link to that post. Thanks for the consideration. (P.S. I absolutely LOVE that you create a version that is editable! While teachers do many of the same basic routines, what each teacher/school calls them does differ. Really appreciate that option!)

Hi! I had a request to create the Dismissal Routine printables right after I created the Morning Routine printables. I already had the morning routine printables in my room so I just made a pack of them. I didn't even think of the Dismissal Routines so that's why I didn't have an image of them in the pack. There aren't actually 59 routines. They are available in 2 formats plus the editable pages.

The dismissal routines included are:

Get your backpack from your locker. (cubby also included)
Put your binder in your backpack.
Put your papers in your binder. (Put your papers in your backpack is also included.)
Take your lunch box home.
Read a book.
Color in behavior sheet.
Put up your chair.
Push in your chair.
Turn in your work folder.
Turn in your work.
Check your mailbox.

If you can think of anything else you would need, I've been adding requests for other people.

Hi! Could you email me at swimmingintosecond@att.net so I can just email it to you? Uploading it takes forever with the editable version so it would be faster for me to email. I will add it to the original pack as well when I get a chance.

Could you add a clipart of a water bottle?
Also, could you make a pic of the folder that says Take Home Folder?

Hi! I will try to do that this weekend but I'm not clear about your second request. Do you want a card labeled Take Home Folder or the folder labeled that?

Hi, I really have no idea. You will have to check your stories to see if they are the same. I have all 6 units but the stories may be somewhat different.

I love these and can't wait to print and laminate them! It will help my visual learners!

Is there any way that you could put an editable page with the green folder that is in the dismissal routines, we just so happen to use green folders and I would love to be able to use that visual in the morning routines as well. Thank you!

The clipart kids on the front of this are so super cute! Do you draw your own clipart ?

When I add my own end of routine items on the circles, it cuts the words off. Is there a way to fix this so I can actually use them? I think they are a great visual for end of day routine reminders. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! I also bought your morning routine one, I am checking now to see if I will have the same problem...

Would you consider selling part of your back to school with books package? I'm starting the year off with pirates and I'd love to use your pirate activities but due to my pacing guide, I cannot fit in all of the activities in the bundle. - Although I LOVE THEM! Let me know! Thanks!

Hi! I probably won't do that. It confuses people when I do that and I end up with lots of bad comments. I'm sorry!

Happy Sunday! I love this and your dismissal procedures! Just wondering if you are able to make a card with breakfast clip art? My kids eat in our classroom each morning.
Thanks!
