Don’t See What you Want? Do you use different words, terms, theme for classroom Décor or ways of teaching concepts? Maybe you need Names printed on Name cards/desk tags etc? Do you Need Something Customized Just for You...Even though a resource might be editable, it can be hard sometimes to get it just right! I love to create and would be more than happy to customize any of my resources just for you so you can focus on what is important during your school year and give yourself more time! In most cases the cost will be the same, but if it is a resource that I do not have in my shop, then the price can be discussed. I have customized many resources for districts including Kindergarten, Special Education all areas, ELL, First Grade and more. If this is something you need or want...leave the creating or editing( of my resources) to me! E-mail me through “Ask the seller a Question” above. Please leave your e-mail so I can contact you quickly!! Thanks and have a great school year!

Thank you for purchasing, downloading, browsing, following and inspiring! I hope this brings a bit of sunshine your way! I appreciate customer feedback and comments. If you find anything in this packet that needs to be reworked or might work better for your students, please let me know and I will be happy to rework any activity/packet that you have purchased to fit your needs.
