Buyer re: Route 66 Sight Word Mats {PRIMER EDITION!}
I have a problem with you using Disney clipart from Cars. Did you really get permission from Disney to use?? This is an illegal product and puts TpT in jeopardy for posting. If you want to use in your classroom that is fine but to sell is an illegal use of copyright material. This is true on other product you sell too.

Ex. add several letters to the Aa gumball machine that are not "A" just to make it more challenging? Please let me know if this would be possible! Thanks so much! Beth

Hello! My daughter is four (turned four in April) and she needs the "extender" which is just an extra piece of paper. You could laminate the headbands themselves and then have "extenders" available in various lengths with velcro that would velcro onto the headbands. Does that make sense? Thanks!

Hi Melinda! I am so sorry I did not see your e-mail until now! I don't know why my video isn't working :( It seems to have disappeared from YouTube. So, Zonk is great b/c it is a game of chance and knowledge. I would have two teams. The player who is "up" gets a question. I allowed the kids to consult each other, but the answer had to come from the person "up" at the time. If the answer is correct they get to pick a monster. If the monster has points they get them...and they can keep picking more monsters if they want to push their luck. If they get ZONK they lose all the points made DURING THAT TURN only (not points they previously earned) ~ but if they get USTA it doubles the points they have earned in the turn. I hope this helps! let me know if you need any more details. My e-mail is dawndelz@gmail.com

Hello! It is designed to be a "what goes in between?" task...so there is a top half of the egg and a bottom half of the egg...the chick it what comes between. So there are supposed to be less chicks than eggs. For example, the top of the egg is A and the bottom of the egg is C; the "B" chick goes between. Thanks :)Dawn

I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. What fun it will be!

I have a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products. First, create a cover page which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. Add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page. List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product. Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations.

If you have time, I’d appreciate your input on my freebie listed below.
