I downloaded your "How much is your name worth?" money activity last year and it isn't opening for me now. I'm a Windows user. When I click on the file, it says something like the destination couldn't be found.

Thanks for downloading my product last year. I'm sorry that you are having difficulty reopening the document. I have not changed or updated it. I'm not sure why you can't open it now. Please contact TpT Tech support. They should be able to assist with opening that document.

It looks like I am having the same problems with opening the file. I have tried all of the fixes you suggested for the other buyers but I can't seem to get the product to open.

Hi, I did everything that you sugguested - downloaded the newest version, etc. and I still can't open it. I've never had this problem before. I also googled how to open compressed zip and followed all directions and still no luck. Can you email me a copy that is not compressed. I bought this for this week and am hoping to get my money's worth - it looks like a fun activity. Please let me know asap

Hello, and thank you for your purchase! I'm so sorry to hear you're having trouble printing. First, make sure you have the most current version of Adobe Reader (not preview). If that doesn't work, try this advice from TpT Tech Support:

1) Open the PDF file with Adobe Reader

2) Click 'print'

3) Click on 'advanced'

4) Check the 'print as image' box, and this should cover all potential issues

If that still doesn't work, email me at hammonds0424@yahoo.com and we will see if there is another way to get it to you!

I think you have a typo in the teacher directions...should it be stripes instead of strips?

Definitely! You can explain and do a few examples on class. Use the homework handout in class as practice and send the class handout home as the take home project.

For some reason every time I try to print the "All About Ants" fact sheet, the words are all marked out? When I open it in Adobe it looks fine just when I go to print it doesn't print out where it can be read...Any suggestions? Thanks. Very excited to use this product with my students.

I cannot get the file to actually open. It shows up as a compressed zip file but nothing appears after I extract the file. What can I do?

There doesn't appear to be anything in the folder even when I unzip it. I have saved it, extracted the files and there isn't anything in the folder. I hope that you can help.

I am using a pc, and I tried to save the file and then open it, but that didn't work either. I have tried to open it on my home computer and my school computer, but neither is working.

Hi, I have reopened my file on my Mac and my PC with no problems. I'm not sure what else I can do to help you. No one else who has purchased the file has had any problems. Without knowing your systems it's hard for me to trouble shoot. I am open to suggestions.

Hello, it is a compressed zip file so you have to unzip it to open it. Are you using a Mac or PC? Sometimes, you have to first save the file; then open it. Please, let me know if this helps or if you still have difficulties.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for six years. I love helping to shape the thinking and learning of my 2nd graders!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students should learn in an environment that encourages creative thinking, collaboration and perseverance. As a result, I try to facilitate learning not dictate learning. I expect students to do their best and don't accept anything less.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Over the last few years, I have supported efforts build student and staff awareness around environmental issues and slowly transform our school into a green school. Recently, I was awarded a grant to create a garden and an outside classroom.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

In the beginning, I dreamed of being an artist but soon realized that I also had a passion for the history of art. As a result, I earned a B.A. in Art History at the University of Maryland. After graduating, I interned at AVAM (American Visionary Arts Museum) and realized that I loved teaching kids in a creative way and exposing them to art. I decided to become a teacher. I also have a M.A. in Education from Grand Canyon University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Math is one of my favorite subjects to teach. Most students come into math with preconceived notions about their ability. I quickly dispel myths by teaching from an exploration approach where everyone has a voice and an opinion. By the end of the year, most students love math.
