hi Amy, you can add names using your own clip art or by covering up the numbers. I had to format them together for copyright purposes.

They can be used with any interactive whiteboard software (smart, Promethean, Mimio, or other). You'll need to save the file, open up the software program, click open, change the file type at the bottom to ink. Good luck!

No, in order to protect the copyrighted clip art I create the images prior to putting into the mimio. You can find and use your own clip art and group it with the names. Good luck!

You will have to use another pumpkin. The pumpkin image is copyrighted, so I can't have it "loose" in the document. I had to create an image for each numbered pumpkin in a separate program before adding to the mimio. I'm sorry!

Hi Amy,
It is only available as an Ink file, but you should be able to open it with your smart board program. Try this:

Save the file to your computer
Open your smart notebook
Go to "file" "open" (or similar)
Change the file type in the bottom box to mimio INK

I hope this helps!

Yes, they should work with both, but I can't guarantee it because I only have access to the mimio program.

Buyer re: Mimio November Calendar Morning Meeting
Hi there! You must have a mimio so maybe you can help me. From what I can understand from various places, mimio boards can use smart board lessons, activities etc. Is it that the two are interchangable and its totally easy, or do you have to reformat it or something? Just so you know who you're talking to... I'm very comfortable with computer basics but not anything fancy. I don't have the board or programs to play with yet, I'm just hoping to be inheriting one this summer and am getting so excited by all I see on here! How difficult it is to create new presentations... are a computer programmer in the evenings?! ;)

Hi Susie,
Thanks for the compliment. I am just a teacher, but I do some (self-taught) graphic design on the side. It’s easy to create simple presentations, but takes a lot of time to make them with cute and elaborate. It took a lot of playing around for me to figure it all out.

I hate to send you away from TPT, but www.mimioconnect.com is an awesome place to find lots of free lessons.

As for using smartboard and mimio lessons interchangeably- most of the time it works. You may find that you need to tweak a few things.

To open a file in a different format from your program-
Save the file to your computer
Open your notebook (mimio or smartboard)
Go to "file" "open"
Change the file type in the bottom box to mimio INK (or notebook)

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Elizabeth,
I only have experience using mimio, but I have found a way to use both smart notebook and flipchart files with the mimio notebook.

Try this:
Save the August mimio calendar to your computer
Open promethean
Go to "file" "open"
Change the file type at the bottom to mimio INK
Try opening the file

Let me know if it works or not. If it doesn't, I will see what I can do to help!

I use my own homemade patterns not exactly the size included in this packet when I make this scarecrow. If I had to guess, I would say this one (as is) will be as tall as a large 12x18 piece of construction paper. If you have access to a projector or document camera, you could project this pattern onto a large poster and trace.

Hi Carrie,
I'm sorry you are having trouble printing the calendars. I also have a Mac and the PDF printed perfectly from mine. Unfortunately, Mac does not support Publisher (which is what I created the original file from on a PC computer)- so sending you that file won't really help. I claim to be a "tech savvy" person, but I don't know how to fix the problem since my computer isn't doing the same thing. Do you have access to a different type of computer? I feel so bad that I can't help you :(

Do you have a turkey coloring sheet with the same amount of feathers as questions? I tried to find one but couldn't. My students wanted to have most of the feathers colored in but there were way too many. I also had my students color a feather black for the cheese cake because it was hard to tell whether the turkey feather was white for cheesecake or because it was an extra feather. We had fun with this activity and I will watch for other products from you.

Tracie Penn  (TpT Seller)
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Great tip for using black instead of white on the “color me turkey.” I do not have another turkey I can sell. Scholastic has several printable turkeys on their “printables” website. Another option is to color in two feathers for each food you like. Or- choose your most favorite Thanksgiving food and color all the left over feathers that color. I will let you know if I find something better!
