Our team would like to purchase the calendar. Would you be willing to take out the science row and add something different?

Perfect. I missed the free preview (it was only BIG BOLD;-). Would it be possible for us to edit the science as we are in Missouri?

Haha, I do it all the time! Unfortunately, all of my products are locked PDF's so you will not be able to edit them :(

Can you make another sample of the weekly calendar available? I want to make sure it will fit with our curriculum before purchasing.

The Curious Catfish  (TpT Seller)
Thank you for your question! The May calendar is available in the thumbnails and the February calendar is free in the 'Free Preview'. These calendars cover first grade common core standards for Math and ELA. The Science tasks are aligned with Florida NGSSS. The pacing is laid out with my district curriculum guides. I hope this information along with the February and May calendars will help you make an informed decision!

Before I purchase this I was wondering if the writing page had a dotted lined option to use rather than the plain lines that can be seen in the preview picture.

Thank you for double checking, it's so smart to do that beforehand to ensure your satisfaction! The only line option available is the one pictured in the preview.

Buyer re: Short Vowel Word Family Foldable Books
Hello. This is a great product. I am very interested in purchasing. My only concern is the font. Would your be able to change the font to a more Kindergarten/Grade One font please?

I use this as a grade one teacher and my students have never had a problem. With that being said, I am planning on updating it but probably won't have time to work on this until mid-March. I hope you will consider purchasing it then or purchasing it now and I will send a notification once it is updated so that you can re-download!

Thanks so much.

I searched for the preview box yesterday, too and could not find it then.
Thanks for your understanding.

It's no problem at all! Maybe it's a glitch with the new system, I just hope other people aren't having the same problem. I'm sending it your way now! Enjoy!

Hi! Your products are great!!! Do you still have your Room on the Broom story map freebie? I saw it on your Facebook page but when I clicked on the link I did not see it.

Thank you!

Hi Maureen! Thank you so much! The story map is available in the "preview". I try to put all the freebies that accompany my units in the free preview! I hope that helps and that you enjoy doing Room on the Broom with your students this year! I started pulling the activities together last week, can't wait :)

Hi, Love your product! Prior to purchase wanted to know if you could provide me with an editable file so I could modify it to my students' needs? Thanks!
October 6, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
The Curious Catfish
The Curious Catfish  (TpT Seller)
Thank you so much for the compliment! I'm so glad you asked before purchasing to ensure your own satisfaction with the product. Unfortunately I do not create editable versions. I would be happy to email you a copy of the PowerPoint that I created the product in after your purchase if that could suit your needs. The only stipulation I would have is that you do not edit it to suit your needs and then resell. Also you might want to consider that alignment and fonts may be off if you do not have the same ones on your computer. If this solution works for you just email me at jessehlinger@gmail.com after your purchase and I will send you the working document! Thanks again!

Hi. I have tried printing this several times on two different computers/printers (one at home and one at school). I can not get it to print. There is some sort of error. Is anyone else having these problems? Please let me know how I might be able to fix this problem. Thanks.

Oh no! I'm so sorry, I haven't heard of any other problems yet. I know it has printed from several locations at my school. Sometimes I have trouble printing when my Adobe needs to be updated. If you reply back with your email I will try sending it to you in an email. I want to make sure you are able to open and print it. I'm very sorry for this inconvenience!

For your reading comprehension sheet, is there a way to change the wording in the beginning of the first paragraph? I would like it to indicate more as a helpful guide rather than to be used because the child is struggling. Is this possible?
April 14, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
The Curious Catfish
The Curious Catfish  (TpT Seller)
I put this document together for the parents of my students who were struggling with comprehension. I got a lot of positive feedback from them and saw gains in the students whose parents were actually using them so I decided to just share it for free as a helpful resource to other teachers. I might change the wording to "needs extra support/practice" in the future so that it is applicable to more teachers. Thank you for the suggestion. Email me at jessehlinger@gmail.com and I can try to get you a copy of the document with wording that will be more useful for you!

I really like the theme pages for Houghton Mifflin. I would like more space for them to write. Can you allow me to edit them? I would like the writing part to be on a separate page and do 1/2 sheets to allow more writing space.
Thanks

Hey! Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm super excited about this product! I just TpT searched Room on the Broom Readers Theatre's and there are already a couple out there. I don't want to step on any other sellers feet by posting a similar product. I'm attaching their links for you so can check them out. I really like the second one, the script is really cute and there's a craft! I hope this helps :)

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 8 years now! My experience ranges from Kindergarten to First Grade!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have a pretty direct teaching style. I love creating engaging centers, games, and activities using the Common Core Standards. I believe in engaging all modalities to really cement a child's understanding!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm honored to work with children each day and awarded with "love" notes, hugs, and funny stories on a regular basis!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated with a degree in Journalism from Indiana University. When I moved back to Florida I kind of fell into teaching through the back door and it's a perfect fit. Who knew??

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." -William Butler Yeats
