I am a Mac girl so I use Pages and sometimes Keynote. Pages and Keynote are both very user friendly. Believe me, if you try them, you won't go back to Office.
This is always a work in progress for me. At this point in the year, we do most of the games whole group. After we have finished playing the games, I place them in a folder or envelope and put them in a basket where the kids can play them again when their work is done. When there are quite a few games in the baskets, I take out the old ones. I bought tubs for each unit but I haven't begun to organize these yet. Moving classrooms put me behind this year.
My room still doesn't look like in the picture. This was right after I moved.
3. I can't open something that I purchased from you. What do I do?
Most often, this is because you don't have an unzipping program on your computer. Many of my files are in a zip format. You need an unzipping program to open the file. You can download a free one for a Mac or PC with Winzip.
This will unzip the file and open the PDF.
4. My PDF has black bars through it. How can I get rid of them?
You need to update Adobe Reader. They release updates quite often so this usually causes the bars. After you update, the bars should be gone.
5. I bought a unit from you. Can I share it with my grade level?
If you appreciate someone's work, show them by not sharing with others. It really hurts our stores when you do. I know personally that I spend hours creating each resource and when people share, it doesn't value the time and effort spent creating resources. I've had one person email my Common Core Standards to their entire district. That's just not cool!
Okay, that's all for now. I'm off to a cookout in the rain. Have a happy Labor day friends!
