HI Pam,
Sorry to hear that you have having difficulty. They should print without problem, I made them for our testing a couple of weeks ago, so you may need to ask TpT for assistance.

Go to "My Purchases" and click on the "See tips for printing and viewing files" under the purchased file. If those tips don't resolve the problem click on the "Need Help? Download Difficulty" link in the top righthand corner of the "My Purchases" page and TpT can help!

I am very interested in your Read and Respond Daily Journal. Is there a way I could get a closer look at it? It is just too small to see what is actually on the page.

Thank You

Hi Nancy,
I'm sorry that the thumbnail is difficult to read and I don't have a preview at this time.

The student page includes:
* directions for completing the read and respond
* an example of a well written entry
* prompts for fiction reading
* prompts for nonfiction reading

The rubric is for both the response and conventions, and details the qualities for each score.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further details. Thanks.

Buyer re: Science Fair Project Planner
I utilized your packet this quarter for my kids to do their own science fair projects. Thank you for your resource. A couple of things I discovered during the process - in the "Design Your Experiment" section, the definitions for the variables are switched. The dependent variable shoud be the variable that is measured as a result of the independent variable and the controlled variables should be the ones you keep the same throughout the experiment. Everything else went pretty well. Thanks!

My students love your math circles.
I just started on TPT and would love any feedback or comments on ideas that I should work on.
My strengths are menus for enrichment/compacting language arts or math related to Common Core Standards.

Thanks for the great products!

Hi Upper Grades,
I would like to purchase the 1st Grade Math Common Core Wheel and coordinate colored file folders to match. Is it possible to change the colors on the wheel to primary colors (red, blue, green, yellow)? That way I can buy the multi-colored box of files that come in those colors. Thank you!

If you save the black and white copy as a JPEG, or take a screenshot of it, you can open it in Paint (or similar program) and make it any colors you like!

No, I am not working with Stephanie. She has developed an excellent and involved calendar math program. There are many calendar math items on TpT that look similar, but vary in the intensiveness and concepts covered.

Hi,
I just purchased your common core standards to display in the classroom, but after I color copied and laminated them, I see that some of the standards have been left out. Am I missing something? Please let me know how I can get the missing standards such as NF.3 and NF.4.

Thanks

When I try to print page 3, the student copy, there is a vertical line at the top where the name goes and a black box (2x4) appears at the bottom of the page. Is it possible for you to send me a clearer copy? I printed the page twice thinking maybe the first time was a fluke. I definitely would like to use the student page this year. You may contact me at violawilsonnm@gmail.com

Did you use the "Download Now" button (as opposed to the "Download Preview" button? Try deleting the preview download from your computer and then re-downloading the full file. Also, the full file is a zip file that you will need to unzip first to use.

I did double check the file, so it should work. Please let me know if you are still having issues!

Scipi
Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Science Fair Project Planner
I saw your store on the Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done! Since you are just starting out, here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.

Add some clipart to add color or just color some of your font. (I do even on high school math tests!) For some reason buyers like color on the original even though they may copy your product in black and white. Also, create a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do use this? When? Etc.) 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. Finally, unless you want your products revised (I do for my tests) save everything in a PDF format as it is harder to change.

It is important that we see what others are doing to gather ideas; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below. If you care to, a rating or any feedback you might have would be great.

I am now your 2nd follower, and if you would like, you are welcome to follow my store as well: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products

Keep checking the Sellers Forum under Communication for loads of great ideas and helpful suggestions given by TPT veterans. The best of luck as you sell on TPT! It is quite addictive!
