Were you able to update the word search program so that it allows space between two words (i.e. Right Triangle)?
February 23, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Technology Integration Depot
I will do my best to get the space issue and "No Diagonals" option completed this weekend. We recently brought two foster children into our home and I just started a new job. (I know, excuses excuses)

Look for the "update notification" message in your email. The new zip file will also contain a program that will allow you to run the word search program on a PC without a browser. Some users have reported the image quality is better when using an older computer.

Hi Scott,
I tried to unzip the file, but my computer, which is a HP Envy, Windows 8, says that the application is not found. I thought my computer came with a zip application. I tried to look for free winzip app but they want me to buy-- is there anything you can suggest, do? You may want to add to your store that if one doesn't have the zip app, one has to BUY it. Now I can't use your puzzle maker unless I buy something else?

Hello!
I'm about to buy your puzzle maker machine, but first I wanted to find out if there are any restrictions with regards to how the created puzzle can be sold-- If I create a new puzzle, can I sell it as a stand-alone or do I have to include it in a packet of some kind? Please write back as soon as possible. Thanks,

Is there any way with the word search program to have it display spaces in the word list? For example of I want to use "Right Triangle" but when it creates the word list it pushes it all together as "righttriangle". Thank you!

I've had a few requests to make changes to the program. I plan to make an update in the next week or two. When I upload the new file you should receive an update message via TPT.

The line says "Created using Crossword Machine at www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Technology-Integration-Depot" in small letters at the bottom. There would be room for your own text. ***Scott***

Hi Scott, Does your program allow the use of lowercase letters in the puzzles? Thank you...

The program accepts both lower and upper case letters in the "Words" and "Clues" input boxes. When the puzzle is generated the clues at the bottom appear exactly as typed. The answer sheet, however, displays red capital letters in the squares when printed or saved to a JPEG image file. Hope this helps! ***Scott***

I just downloaded the American history trading cards. Can you tell me the reasoning behind the numbers on them?

Did you have a description of the activities you used these cards for once they were made (rather by you or by the kids)?
January 8, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Technology Integration Depot
Q1: The cards are fashioned after a deck of playing cards. The numbers 1-13 can relate to 2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-J-Q-K-A. The four colored circles surrounding the numbers (blue,red,black,green) are the four suits. The two cards containing stars are jokers.

Q2: I would have loved to play the games with students in the classroom. Unfortunately, my Computer Teacher/Technology Integrator position has been eliminated twice in three years and am not teaching at this time. I designed the games without "kid" input and testing.

Could you try saving your jpeg files to the desktop? The images should appear as icons on your main screen. I made a simple web page for you to view as an example: http://covenantworks.com/wordsearch/

Let me know how it works. ***Scott***

I just cannot see where it is saving…I am even trying to search my computer for the file using spotlight - but I just can't find it…I can still take a screen shot of the puzzle and use that, so that is good, but so far I can't seem to save it :( I have tried checking downloads also.

Hi Scott, I am enjoying using your program. I can't seem to get a puzzle to save though. I clicked jpg and it shows me the screen where I can save the document and I click save, but then the document is not there when I go to find it. I am working on a mac. I am sure I am doing something wrong???
December 29, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Technology Integration Depot
I've got two guesses:

#1 The name of the jpeg file defaults to the puzzle's title. If the title is birds then the filename is birds.jpg. If you save the answer sheet then the filename is birds-Key.jpg. Of course you can always change the filename by making a change in the "Save Window".

#2 Perhaps your files are being saved to a default folder you are not browsing. I haven't worked in a Mac environment since 2008 so I can't remember the folder name. Maybe "Downloads"? When you save your puzzles click the down arrow in the "Save In" combo box to tell the program which folder to save the jpeg files. Once saved, go to Finder and go to that folder.

Send me another QA message to let me know how that works.

Does your Word Search maker allow for the use of lowercase letters in the puzzles and the list of words to find? Also, can you select "forward only" forward/backward, diagonal, etc.? Thank you. Take care...

Saw this in the forum. I'm impressed with your skills! Do I need a certain program to use this?
December 28, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Technology Integration Depot
You do not need any special programs to use the Word Search Machine. I created it using Adobe Flash, the same software used to create many online games and educational interactives. Word Search Machine can be run by using a web browser (Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer, etc.) or by directly accessing the Flash Player (version 10 or greater) installed on your computer.
My free preview is actually the instructions manual. You may want to download this PDF file to answer some of your questions. Of course, you can also send me another note. Thanks for your interest! ***Scott***

I am fascinated by your upper elementary on up to high school projects you have come up with. Only problem is I teach kinder and first graders. I would like to see you come up with computer activities and learning lessons for the littler guys. So if you want to open a whole new level to your online shoppers please consider creating ideas for us lower level teachers. Even the young students love computer activities and learning with computer technology. Hope you will...can't wait to see what you come up with! (PLEASE)

Thank you for your suggestions! I worked two years as a computer teacher in a middle school with absolutely no curriculum. What you see is many of the lessons I created on my own time. I have thought of some lessons for the younger grades, but family obligations have prevented me from going forward. If you haven't already done so, become a follower and see my lessons as they post them!

What I meant I want to make a file for the smartboard. I want to make a resource for addition problems that require clicking on the correct answer (3 choices). I also want to make the activity for 1 minute. The goal is to get the students to answer as many addition problems within 1 minute using the mouse. I don't know if I explained this any better....

We've been on a family vacation. I do my programming requiring time elements in Flash. I currently don't have anything in place that would fit your description. Perhaps that could be my next lesson! I have been working on a math adventure game that does use a time function. Feel free to look at a level: http://www.covenantworks.com/@GreatRace/Stage02/
