Hello I purchased the Mesoamerica Civilizations game and am loving it. Thank you so much for your hard work. My students are having a fantastic time. As I am using it however I am noticing more errors, some typing and some grammatical. I was wondering if you could send me the word file, so I can fix them?

I am trying to buy this, but the download button is not allowing me to push it. I can get the preview, but not the entire file. I am not at home, so I am using my iPhone. Do you think that is why. Do you think it would allow me to download the file on my laptop?

I bought your Parts of Speech Grammar Farm and I have a question. On the list it says, "parts of speech notebook." I am unable to open anything in this file (not sure it is called a file). Is this an interactive notebook? And is there a way for you to send it to me in a format that I could see and print? Thank you!!

Do you have the Notebook software for the SmartBOARD files? That is the only type of software that will be able to open the files. If you do not have access to the program, you can contact TpT for a refund. Sorry for the troubles.

Thank you for your purchase and contacting me! Were you unable to unzip the file? It should have four files. 2 Pdf's titled "Natural Resources Activities" and "Natural Resources Sorting Cards." Then there is natural resources.notebook, which is the smartboard slides. Finally there is a word doc teaching guide. Please let me know exactly what is missing. Do you have the notebook software to open the smartboard file? If not, I can send it as a pdf, but it will lose the interactivity.

Turning Frowns Into Smiles Style Teaching
Good Evening, I am a brand new seller and I saw back in May of this year that you replied to someone saying that you use Powerpoint to create your products. Is there anyway I can ask you some questions about using Powerpoint? I hear a lot of people use it but I'm not that familiar with it and all of its uses and perks. Anyhow, thank you for your response back then and I look forward to your response. Have a great holiday season!

Greetings!
I must say I do like your sorting cards with photos! I am presently a Toddler (year olds) teacher at a learning center and frequently make cards such as this for my kiddos. I am wondering where you find your pictures and what you do to avoid breaking any copyright laws. I have a set of photo cards that I would love to post for the different colors but I'm not sure if it is a violation of copyright laws. I was intending to list it as a free item so there would not be any profit received from it. Plus I would like to actually sell some things using photos. I would love any advice you are willing to give!
Thanks so much

Hi Heather,

Thank you so much for your purchase and question. A great place to learn more about copyright is the seller's forum. It has a whole section on copyright. There are two main places I go for my images.

1. Microsoft Office's gallery
2. Wikimedia Common

Best of luck,

Hello,

Thank you for your purchase! Have you been able to unzip the file? There is a pdf and notebook file in the download, and a free software download such as WinZip found here - http://download.cnet.com/WinZip/3000-2250_4-10003164.html will let you unzip the files. If you do not already have this program, you will find it very useful with many TpT products!

If you already unzipped the files, are you only unable to open the notebook file? You don't actually need the notebook file to complete the activity, and it must be opened in notebook software.

Please e-mail me at teachcouple@gmail.com, and I will be happy to e-mail you the notebook file.

Thanks,

Andrea

Hi Gretchen,
Thank you for your interest! You do not need a Smartboard for this resource. Only one of the 8 activities has a Smartboard file, but the activity is also included in pdf form (it would just need to be enlarged, zoomed in, to display on a projector screen). The answers for the activity are in the Teacher Guide.

Hi Dyelton,

Great question! And yes, there is some overlap. 10 of the graphic organizers are used in both the 6th grade and the 7th grade versions. By looking at the standards, you will be able to see where the overlap is. Also, I notice a great increase in higher order thinking in 7th grade, which is reflected in many of the graphic organizer.

Thank you for looking! And remember we have a buy 2 get 1 free deal.

Best wishes for the new school year,

Andrea

Hi Snesler,

I tried and am able to open the .pdf preview, but I know TpT is having some technical difficulties with the website upgrade, which may be the issue.

If you e-mail me at teachcouple@gmail.com, I would be able to e-mail you the preview to see if that makes a difference.

Also, TpT is great to work with - if you ever purchase an item you are unable to open they will help take care of the issue. The actual download is a .ppt file, so if you would purchase and have any difficulties, I could e-mail you that as well.

Thank you for your interest,

I'm sorry the file is causing difficulties. It is a zip file - do you have Win Zip or a similar program to open zip files? More information on opening zip files can be found at http://www.tech-pro.net/howto-open-zip-file.html

If the problem continues please e-mail me at teachcouple@gmail.com and I will try to send you the files via e-mail. However, the riddles are 34MB so that is difficult for some e-mails.
