Hi there,

Thanks so much for your great suggestion. But, unfortunately I'm unable to make your suggested change at the moment. However, I will add this to my revision list for this product, and will hopefully have time to alter the product in the coming months.

Hi,

Thanks so much for your question. At the moment I only have individual packs for the digraph /sh/ and /ch/. You can find these at the below links. I will be adding /th/ and /wh/ in the coming weeks. If you follow me you will be notified when they're added.

Hi Michelle,

Sorry to hear you're having problems with printing this document. Is it the Science Experiment - Investigating Floating and Sinking item that you're having trouble with? I have just checked and the PDF definitely has printing allowed. I haven't had anyone else mention that they've had a problem printing. What version of Adobe are you using? Sometimes older versions can cause various issues, which may be why. You can get an updated version of Adobe here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/.

Hi Narellefraser86,

That's no problem. Could you please send me an email so I can send on the Freddy Full Stop poster to you. My email is: melinda@topnotchteaching.com.

Thanks

Buyer re: Punctuation – 10 Punctuation Posters
Hi

Would it be possible to send a modified version - saying 'full stop' instead of 'period'. The term we use locally is full stop so using a different term would confuse our students.


Thank you

Monica

Hi Monica,

That's no problem, I have another version that uses Freddy Full Stop. When you have purchased the pack, if you could email me your username and date of purchase I can then verify the sale. I will then email you a copy of the version with Freddy Full Stop, so you will then have both. You can email me at melinda@topnotchteaching.com.

Thanks for your question!
Cheers

Hi Karen,

I’m sorry to hear that you are having difficulties downloading the file. If you go to your ‘Downloads and Purchases’ page on the right side of the page near the top is a section called ‘Need Help Download Difficulties’. If you click on this it will give you a couple of tips to try to help you download. If that doesn’t work there is the option to have the file emailed to you or if it is too large you can contact Teachers Pay Teachers who will be able to assist you with the download.

I hope this helps!
Thanks
Melinda

I was looking at your spelling activities program and wondered if you include the spelling words with that set. Thanks!

Hi Kandorf,

Thanks for your question. The spelling learning center is designed to be used with any set of spelling words, so I have not included any. That way it can fit in with you current focus.

Thanks

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Flight Workbook - Using the Technology Process
I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie since you are a newbie. I thought this unit was excellent. Good questions using several levels of Bloom's.

Here are a couple of 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. Make the second page the directions or suggestions page. Add some color to the worksheets. For some reason, buyers like color even though they copy it in black and white. Finally, number your pages.

If you have time, I’d would value your input on one of my freebies listed below. I love to get feedback from a variety of teachers.

I am now your 4th follower, and hope you will reciprocate at my store as well. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products

Welcome to TPT, and good luck with selling!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi, my name is Melinda Crean and I have been a teacher for 9 years in Western Australia. I mainly teach the primary years: 1-7. I have been involved in mentoring programs for beginning teachers as well as teaching trainee teachers. More information about my experience can be found here: http://topnotchteaching.com/about/. I also coordinate a bridging program at a University that assists prospective students in gaining entry to University courses.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that all students should experience success in learning. I incorporate experiences where students succeed, an environment where they are not afraid to 'have a go' and I relate learning to real life experiences. I encourage self-motivation and self-regulation to promote ownership of learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated from my teaching degree with first class honours. I also received the Miles Medal for Excellence in Education (dux of year).

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I completed a Bachelor of Education (primary), first class honours at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am passionate about K-7 education and how we can better ourselves as teachers to provide more quality opportunities for our students.
