I this a different set? I bought one two years ago that is almost identical, but this set has the numbers.

It is very much the same but improved and you may download it for FREE since you already own it! Once you buy a product, it is yours to download if the seller updates. I have updated most of my products and people do not realize they can just go to "my products" and download again. Also, TpT allowed bigger files over the 2 years, so I could get more in this product.

Hi Carolyn, I wonder if you could help me. I was so excited to find your boards especially your middle / high school boards until I read that you are no longer taking members. I want to concentrate a lot more clip art for these areas and have a whole lot of requests for science and especially literature clip art but unless I can actually get in somewhere that promotes for these levels I feel I am wasting my time. Do you know of any other well established boards for these levels? My Pinterest account is http://www.pinterest.com/aisnev/ and my TPT store is http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Aisnes-Creations
Thanks

Dear Stephanie, whenever there is a problem like that, TpT is actually glad to help you. So, by contacting them at the bottom of the page at contact us, explain your problem. They can email you the PDF which is only part of the product, but may have other tech help info for you. TpT wants us to direct sellers with tech questions to them. I am out of town until tomorrow. You may also email me at cwilhelm at thewiseowlfactory.com also, but I cannot answer today. I hope this helps. TpT tech help is wonderful. Carolyn

HI! See slide one, at the bottom, where the large arrow points to a paperclip. Click on the paperclip and the 152 page PDF will open. Alternately, there are tabs one the side of the SMART Board file and one is picture, one has a paperclip. That is where any attachments will be, like mine.
Thank you for the purchase. You will see you can get at least two days using this product. Carolyn

Thank you for your quick response! I'm wondering if the PDF that is attached to the PDF one is simply the wrong file? It doesn't match your preview at all. I am hoping to use the rubric and the three pages (beginning- characters and setting, middle, and end) for my kiddos. The PDF attached has sentence frames and a simplified Kindergarten version. Does that make sense? You don't need to transfer SMART files to PDF for me, but I would like the printable pages. I don't want you to do all that work if there is simply and attachment issue! Let me know,
Thanks!

Right, it was wrong! Zipped folder now uploaded.
I will give you a free lesson for finding this error. The zipped folder is now uploaded and is 145 MB. You found the kindergarten one but not the whole file. I'm so sorry.

The 150 page file has the instructional slides included and the "next" buttons on the pages are interactive enough to go to the next page. There is also a PDF I just included with the instructional slides which is not interactive, you probably do not need that one. Please read the table of contents on the 150 page PDF to find the different lesson components.
Thanks for letting me know. Please email me at cwilhelm at thewiseowlfactory.com and let me know which lesson you would like for free. And do ask for a refund on the other lesson, too, from TpT.

Buyer re: Beginning, Middle, and End Writing, SMART board and PDF
I am having trouble opening the file. It is telling me that I do not have the proper application. I do not have the smart board program, but I was hoping to access the PDF files. Then, I purchased the PDF version of this lesson, and it opens great (although now I have paid twice), but the lesson doesn't seem to be the same--- Help! This unit looks fabulous, and I am eager to use it with my first graders this week.
November 9, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Wise Owl Factory
Wise Owl Factory  (TpT Seller)
First, you do not need to pay twice. I am sorry you are having issues. There is a free SMART Board interactive viewer you can get at Smart Tech. The notebook File for SMART Board is different from the PDF, as many of the slides are interactive. There isn't a way to make the interactive slides work on a PDF. So, one, go to the bottom of this page, click on contact us, and get a refund on one of the lessons. Second, go to http://smarttech.com/Solutions/Education+Solutions/Products+for+education/Software/SMART+Notebook+collaborative+learning+software/SMART+Notebook+Interactive+Viewer and get the free viewer to see and maybe use the lesson or maybe it prints, I am not sure. Third, I will make the SMART Board file into a PDF and upload it to the PDF only product. It will be a zipped folder. However, the SMART Board file won't make total sense as it says to move things, so it might take me a day or two to redo it for PDF use. So keep the PDF only product so you may re-download it for free. Once you own a product it is yours to re-download if updated. Tech help is very helpful, just use the contact us link at the bottom of the page. Good luck. I will get this done by Sunday evening. Thanks for explaining your problem. Carolyn

I just downloaded the Synthesizing Reading Strategy Powerpoint. I have an Apple computer, however I do have Powerpoint. Graphics seem to be missing within the powerpoint (Slide 8 says books will move - there are no books - only circles)??? It will not let me download the PDF's within "normal mode" and even in slide view the slides look like PDF's. Am I missing something???

No, it is all there, it is 147 MB currently. Do you have a SMART Board? The files are on notebook, which is for SMART Boards. What do you think you are missing? Terri, you may email me! cwilhelm at thewiseowlfactory dot com
Oh, Terri, I think you mean the printable PDFs. Mostly they are attached to the SMART Board notebook files. Check the paperclip tab on the side (the tab side) of each file when open. The PDFs are all on that tab in each file.

I purchased and downloaded the following product:268258 Owl Theme Classroom with Months of Year Calendar Headers. All the files have printed perfectly using Abobe Reader except for this one: owldecoroverdoor-no-password-needed.pdf. The blue striped background only prints on half the page. The foreground prints on the entire page. I've tried printing it several ways and nothing works. I also tried opening the files with Photoshop Elements, but it asked for a password. I desperately wanted to use these owl decorations for my kids!

Wise Owl Factory  (TpT Seller)
Oh, dear! No one has said this before. I know for sure that Photoshop won't work at all i made the file with Publisher and saved it in Adobe Pro, it has no password at all. Let me try to print it, just a few minutes. You can always contact TpT by using the link on the bottom of the page that says contact us, and open a help ticket. They are wonderful at helping.

OK, TRY THIS---it is very graphic "heavy" so print just one or two pages at a time. I just printed one at a time and had no problem. See if that works. I think it will!

The reading strategies files are the result of my having a background in gifted ed and several years of training in reading strategies (our whole school studied them for four years). So, it would be difficult to explain what they are all about. People have used these with students and even to inservice teachers to explain reading strategies. Inferring, synthesis, text connections, asking questions, and so on are all included. I'm sorry somehow I didn't get an email that you asked a question and I didn't see this until today. I used them with first graders, but they could be used up through grade four, I feel. The free demo has some of the slides in it. Maybe you are well versed in reading strategies already! Carolyn

Hi, Marilyn, please give me more information. The zipped folder won't open? The SMART board file won't open? Or the PDFs won't open? Please tell me so I can think of how to help. Thank you, and I'm sorry you are having trouble. On TpT tech problems are supposed to go through their help ticket system, but I will see if I can help. Carolyn

Kathie G. re: Beginning, Middle, and End Writing, SMART board and PDF
I just purchased this as a SMARTboard lesson, and each time I clicked on the paper clips, there was a message saying "Can't find the linked file". Can you send me those in a PDF, please?
Thank you,

Try this: click on the paperclip tab on the side of the slides. Do not view full screen, be sure the small slides are on the side. The tab on the side will show a panel where the PDF files are. Slide each one on to your desktop. That should work. Open them from your desktop. It might be something about your settings. Actually, for tech help, you should open a ticket and get answers from TpT. I will alert them to your issue in case you need to contact them. I am sorry you are having trouble. Carolyn

Dear Ms K Teach: First, many TpT sellers explain about making printables on the TpT forum, have you checked that out? And, I have a free ebook along with links to YouTube videos that completely explain how I make my products. It is at this blog post: http://www.wiseowlfactory.com/BookaDay/archives/6776 You will have to copy paste that URL address to get to the post, and the free ebook is right there. It is not a link to a store. Thanks for asking! Carolyn

I have purchased the Calendar Math Aug. 2012 - June 2015 and Printable Student PDFs and want to begin using them with my students beginning in Dec. By the tally marks you have used the terms flats, longs and shorts. Are you talking about hundreds tens and ones? If so, could I have them with those terms? Thanks. I teach 1/2 special ed and a change in terms would really confuse them, but they need to know hundreds tens and ones.

Jennifer K. re: Substitute Day Plans: ABC Order Sub Day & Smart Board Lesson
Hello, I just purchased this product and it says that it comes with 75 PDF pages. All that I received is that Smarboard pages. Is there something else that I need to do? I do not know if my sub is able to use the Smartboard, so I wanted to use the PDF pages.

Hi, you had me worried so I downloaded it myself, and on the first screen there is an arrow pointing to a paperclip. There are two ways to get the 78 page attachment. You have to click on a paperclip. There is a paperclip at the edge of the arrow pointing to one paperclip. When you click on the paperclip the PDF will open. SMART Board also has tabs on the side of the slides (it might be on your right or left depending on what you have set up). Look on the sides of your slide, one tab has a paperclip. Click on the tab paperclip and the PDF is there. Click on the PDF and it will open. This is a standard way to open PDFs on SMART Board. Please let me know if you still have trouble. Thanks for writing, Carolyn

Dear Jennrb66: I have contacted TpT help and opened a help ticket for you and copied your messages so they can help you. I don't think I can do refunds myself, but TpT will be happy to help you. Thank you so much, Carolyn
PS It is such a toss up to put these in a zip file together or what to do!

Katrina B. re: Determining Importance Reading Comprehension Strategy Power Point
I'm having trouble getting the PDFs that are hyperlinked in the powerpoint. I've clicked on them when the hand is showing rather than the arrow, and a box appears to click yes to allow but then it says it can't be found. Any suggestions?

Dear Baumannk23: I'm sorry you are having trouble. First, I have gone through and noted in red letters which slides have PDFs on them and there are several. So, please re-download and be sure you are trying to open PDFs.
I'm not sure what you mean about a hand and an arrow. PDFs do not open in view slide show mode, only in normal view where you can see the slides on the side. Animation on the slides only shows up in view slide show mode. TpT has a help system and prefers you ask them for tech help and not sellers. The support system is on this page: http://support.teacherspayteachers.com/ and you would open a ticket to ask about this issue. Just double clicking on the PDF should open it. Thanks for asking and I hope we can get this resolved quickly. Carolyn

Dear rosiepop123: I am sorry I don't really know (but keep reading), but I will tell you I have a free web site with many Smartboard and Power Point lessons and you could try those out to see if they work.
What I do know is you can project from your computer onto the Mimeo screen, correct? You can project any lesson or web site. So one that that would work well is to use the online SMARTboard express viewer so you don't actually go through Mimeo and you can project and interact with SMARTboard lessons for free. http://express.smarttech.com/ At this instant site you can view, save, and interact with Notebook files for SMARTboard for free. It is an easy site to use. You could try it with my free lessons at http://www.thewiseowlfactory.com Also, you could try asking tech help at TpT at info@teacherspayteachers.com because they probably know. Good luck! Carolyn
