Love, love, love your fonts! Favor: Is there any way you could put an identifying tag (maybe TT) in front of each of your font names? When I'm looking for a font, I can't always remember the name -- but I can usually remember who created it. It's SO much easier to locate if I can find all the fonts together under the artist's name.

Rachel Gooch  (TpT Seller) re: Kindergarten Math Common Core Cut-and-Glue Workbook: COMBO PACK
Hey- another person asked what I am about to ask but I still need some clarification. Do these worksheets increase in complexity? I know you said the answer was yes and no, but I'm trying to figure out first of all if these worksheets will be challenging enough (I have a bright group of kids) and secondly are they the same worksheets over and over just with different pictures to match the theme? At this point in the year I'd like to see some 1st grade skills. Thanks for your help! :)

They cover all of the CCSS for kinder only--not first grade. I do have first grade sets, as well. The worksheets in each set are similar in layout with different problems and graphics. It might help you to take a look at my free set for K/1 to get a better idea how these are constructed.

Hello!

We saw your freebie, and would love to put it up on TinyGrads.com as a free download there as well by our large community of teachers and parents.

Though our policy of no "external links" prevents us from "linking" to your TpT store directly, we'd love to give you credit, put your name and TpT ID picture up there, and use text to point our parents and teachers to your store where they might want to purchase your “for sale” items from there.

We thought this might be a great a way to give you a little “free advertising” and for our community of parents and teachers (and the children they teach) to be able to enjoy your work as well.

We'll take care of loading your freebie up there, all we need is your permission.

Hope you have a great day!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

How do you make a page in a PDF editable?

Thank you so much for your kind words about the videos! I am so glad that they helped! I have seen others make editable products with PowerPoint, so I think there is a way to do that. However, I don't make my products in PP and also did not like the "look" of those editable products. So . . . after a lot of research and using a couple of sample products, I purchased PDFpenPro for about $100. Some other programs that do this can be much more expensive, but I found this one affordable and perfect for my needs. Is it a perfect program? No, it has glitches sometimes, but not too serious. Overall, I am pleased with the product, the resulting products, and with how much I paid. Plus, it is VERY easy to use. Thanks again for the feedback and best of luck!

love your products! so helpful, hands on, engaging, and fun!
makes teaching fun too! do you use this product whole class, small groups, etc. also, do you have anything like your cut and paste math activities that are more reading geared? I know you have your sight word packets, but what about reading, nouns, verbs, reading comprehension etc. would love to see some products like that.

I use these as whole group activities. Each student has a math journal (a composition notebook). Before we do the prompt, I give one or two examples on the board for review. Then, each student glues their prompt (I cut them out beforehand) at the top of the next page in their notebook.
As far as reading is concerned, I have 3 products that focus on cut-and-glue word work (making CVC words, digraphs/blends, long vowels) and then my sets of cut-and-glue sentences. I will give some thought to adding more literacy products, though. Thank you for the suggestions!

You can try 2 things: 1) delete the product and download it again or 2) make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Reader. If those ideas don't work, then you should try contacting TPT customer service. They are much more knowledgeable about tech matters than I am. Thank you so much for your purchase and interest in my store.

I was just wanting to know how you fix them into journals once you purchase them?

I use composition notebooks. I cut out the prompts and have the students glue the prompt for the day at the top of the page. I hope that helps. Thank you for your interest in my store!

I downloaded the free trial set about the zoo animals. I am very interested in these. How do you make them into journals? Do you cut the strips apart and fix each student a booklet or something else? Just let me know. Thank you so much for your time!

Mrs Salvador  (TpT Seller) re: Cut-and-Glue Sight Word Sentences for Second and Third Grade COMBO PACK
Where do you have your students glue the sentences? Do you have a "recording sheet" where they glue them? Love this idea... just trying to figure out logistics.

No, just on a blank sheet. I have them do one at a time, each sentence under the last. I know some teachers like for students to rewrite the sentences, too. Thank you for your purchase!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for almost 16 years, most of them spent teaching pre-K and kindergarten. I also have experience teaching up to 3rd grade. I have used my love of reading to develop a set of 30 phonics-based beginning reading books for use in preschool-first grade. In addition, I have developed sets of reading games and math games that can be used in the classroom or as take-home activities and can be adjusted to address various skill levels. I also have a range of hands on, cut-and-glue materials which keep young students engaged. They have proven to be a success in my own classroom and I'm excited to share them on Teachers Pay Teachers!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to use a variety of materials to teach to the wide range of interests and ability levels of the students who enter my classroom. I'm all about using fun and innovative methods to encourage learning!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I recently had an article published in Texas Child Care Quarterly. You can view/read it here: http://www.childcarequarterly.com/spring11_story3.html

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I actually started out in another field. While working on my doctorate in school psychology, I had a revelation. I think it's a big hint when, instead of shadowing the school psychologist, you'd rather be in the first grade classroom cutting out bulletin board materials! That was my wake-up call! I have degrees from Morehead State University & Illinois State. My MA is from Wheaton College.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my 3 kids, working on family pictures and videos, creating materials to use in my classroom, and, most recently, writing a blog, http://teachertamseducationaladventures.blogspot.com. I also enjoy presenting at conferences when my husband is gracious enough to babysit!
