Rachael M. re: Back to School Binders and File Covers for Students and Teachers!
Hello! I just bought this package and I am confused because it only has the 2012-2013 years on it. Is there any way it can be changed to the current year?
Thank you!

Hi Rachael!
I am so sorry! I had re-downloaded the 2012-2013 product instead of the updated version. I have uploaded the correct update now. I am so sorry for the inconvenience! Please let me know if you need anything else.

Thank you,

Hi Kim,
I updated all the dates and put all my binder and folder covers into one big download called "Binder Extravaganza". However I see that I neglected to move over the older grades! I will do that tomorrow! Thank you for your interest!
Julie

Ok, Kim! Here you go!

No... parts of the circles are missing and parts of the circles are backwards. Then on the skinny, side of the binder ones, there are dots showing up under the words.

Oh no that's not good! I am still searching. Here is what I have been told by other sellers:

"I always tell them that they need to make sure they have the most up-to-date adobe. If not, they need to download it and then try again. If that still doesn't help, I tell them to contact TPT from the main page and someone will help them. I'm not a technical person but they are and they are great at helping!"
If I get any other info I will pass it along. Perhaps you could try this?
I am so sorry about this!
Julie

Update! Tech at TPT has advised this:

Choose the print icon.
Go to Advanced.
Choose Print As Image.

I sure hope that this works! Please let me know!

I found this in the questions section, "The PDF I downloaded is showing black smudges, what do I do?
You just need to update your Adobe Reader. If you are on a Mac, do not open with Preview. It will not work. Download the most updated version of Adobe Reader and open the PDF with it (and not Preview)."

Would black smudges describe what your getting?

It wasn't the free one... I think it was $3. It's really strange because it looks fine until I print it. :)

Hi! I downloaded your binder covers. They are super cute and look great on the page, but when I print them they are all messed up and don't print correctly. I was wondering if anyone else had this trouble and what you thought might be the problem? Thanks! - Jenn

Hi! I am sorry that happened. I can't imagine what might have happened. It downloads correctly for me, and with 250 downloads I haven't heard any other complaints. Please try again and if it doesn't work correctly let me know and I will ask TPT to help us out! Thank you.

Thanks for adding the new sheets. Will there be a charge for these or can I get them with my original purchase? thanks

Tools of the Trade  (TpT Seller)
No charge! At the top of this page there is a gray bar that says My Purchases. If you click on that it will show you everything that you have purchased. The binder covers will have a download button where you can go redownload a previous purchase at any time. Now that it has been revised it should have a "blinky" saying newly revised and downloaded. So when you download it this time it will include all of the new pages too! Let me know how it works out! Thanks again!

I bought this packet and love it. Do you have the same sheets only with 4th and 5th? I teach a resource class and would like all my students to have the same front sheets. Thanks! Mary Johnson

Buyer re: Addition Speed Tests for Kindergarten and First Grade!
I love this product but feel it offers to few pages for the time span you claim. I would need more math pages of the facts in a different order each time to offer my students. If you ever make more pages in a packet I would be interested!

I used each quiz for a week without changing them and I found that no one was memorizing them in that time. I will consider creating more for those who would like that!
Update: I have added a new product that I think you may be interested in!

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Student Survey, Goal Setting and Self Assessment
I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. What a great way to introduce the ABC's of slavation. You might think about adding to this file by putting each letter on a separate page with a visual so the buyer also has something to hang up in the room.

I have a few other suggestions that might help you to better market your products. First, create a cover page for EVERY product you create 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. Also, number your pages.

If you have time, I’d would love to get your input on one of my freebies listed below.
