General Questions

My resources are sold in my resource shop as well as at TeachersPayTeachers. Resources in both shops are identical. In addition, the regular price is identical at each location. However, sales price may fluctuate from location to location due to sales or coupons available.

Yes!  I am able to offer special customer and product discounts in my own shop that TpT does not allow.

Each product listed, whether purchased in my shop or on TpT has identical content. The regular price of each resource is identical no matter where you purchase. Individual resource prices may fluctuate due to sales or coupons.

Sometimes my emails land in your junk or spam folder, especially if it’s the first time you’ve gotten a message from me. If you don’t see an email you’re expecting, check there first. 

If you find the email in your spam or junk folder, mark it as “not spam” or move it to your inbox. Then add my email address to your contacts. This will help future emails arrive correctly. 

If you don’t find the email in your spam or junk folder, submit a support request so I can troubleshoot this for you. You will receive a response in 1-2 business days.

School email filters can be very strict and often block emails. This means you may not receive the receipt and download link for your purchases.

Using your home email address ensures these important emails land in your inbox.

​Due to the digital nature of these products, once a resource is bought and downloaded, it cannot be returned or refunded.

Please ensure that you look carefully at what you are buying and read the details underneath each resource before you make a purchase. Your satisfaction means a lot to me and I will be happy to work with you, if you are unsatisfied.  

If you have a problem or question about your order, please submit a support request so I can assist you.

While I love that you’d like to share, it is against the Terms of Use to email or redistribute free or paid resources from my website or shop (as well as resources purchased on TeachersPayTeachers). Each resource is for single classroom or personal use only. 

You will be breaking copyright laws if you share the resources you have purchased or downloaded. This includes but is not limited to emailing files, uploading to shared drives and sharing logins.

If a colleague or friend would like a copy of the resource, I’d appreciate you sharing a link ​so they can purchase a single use license for themselves. Thank you for respecting my terms of use! 

In general, resources in my shop are offered as is. Please read the resource description carefully to ensure that the resource meets your needs.

However, I do accept editing requests from time to time depending on the nature of the revision. If you would like to request a custom edit, please submit a support request. Please understand that not all custom edits will be accepted.

Account Support

You must have an account to purchase from my shop. You will create your account during the checkout process.

Once you have an account, you’ll be able to view your past orders, access previous purchases, and update your details. You’ll also be able to shop quickly as your information will be saved when you’re logged in as a user.

You can access your account by clicking My Account in the menu at the top or at the bottom of the page.

Click the “Lost your Password” link on the My Account page. ​You will be prompted to enter your email address and then you will receive an email with a link to reset your password.

If you get an error saying your email address doesn’t exist, you have likely entered your email address incorrectly during the account creation process. If that’s the case, ​you’ll need to send through a support email so the team can troubleshoot this for you.

You have likely entered your email address incorrectly during the account creation process or you registered using a different email address. Either way, ​you’ll need to submit a support request so I can troubleshoot this for you. You will receive a response in 1-2 business days.

If you​’ve made a mistake, you can change your email address by logging into your account (using the incorrect email address) and then going to your account details in the dashboard.

However, if you know you’ve made a mistake but you’re not sure of the spelling or error, submit a support request so I can troubleshoot this for you. You will receive a response in 1-2 business days.

Purchasing and Payments

I accept most major credit cards via Stripe payments. We do NOT accept personal checks or money orders.

Payments are processed securely through Stripe. Stripe is a leader in online payment processing, and is trusted by large and small businesses across the world. 

All of your payment information is stored by Stripe, and I only see the last 4 digits of your card number.

I am happy to accommodate purchase orders. Please submit a support request to initiate this process. You will receive a response in 1-2 business days.
 

Currently, my shop sells items to all countries except those in the European Union (EU).  Customers in the EU may purchase items from Teachers Pay Teachers.

All of your purchases are store in your account. You can access the receipts  by logging in to your account and clicking Order History

Accessing your resources

​After you have completed your purchase, you will be taken to an Order Received page. You can download your purchase right away by clicking on the ​download button ​as pictured below. This will open your download in a new window which you can then save and/or open. ​

You’ll also receive an email once your purchase is complete. The download button in your email will take you to your account where you’ll need to log in using the details you provided ​during your account set up. ​​Once you log in, you can access all of your downloads by clicking My Downloads.

placeholder - FAQ & Support

Absolutely! You can access your purchases anytime in your account. You’ll have access for as long as the site is active, but it’s always a good idea to save a copy to your computer or USB drive, just in case!

All you need to do is log into your account. Click on My Downloads, and you’ll be able to download all of your purchases there. 

This is usually because you have purchased your products using a different email address/account. If this happens, I can merge your accounts together. Just submit a support request with detailed information so it can be fixed for you.

I am not able to provide support for downloading resources on mobile devices or tablets. Due to the wide variety of phones, tablets and devices available, I cannot test on every platform. Many mobile devices do not support the variety of file types used in my resources.

​I recommend that you download your purchases onto a computer or laptop. Please make sure you have a program that allows you to download and view PDF files on your computer.

​In order to protect files from being shared illegally, all download links are protected so that only the person that purchased the product can use the link.

You may see this error message on a resource that you purchased if you click the download link in an email but are already signed into the site with a different email address or if you have forwarded the purchase email to another email address. 

If you encounter this error, simply visit the site and log in to your account. You can download all of your purchases on the My Downloads page.

Printing & Editing Issues

All files have been saved in high resolution ready for you to print either at home or via a printing company. Follow the steps below to print your PDF.

1. Click to download the file from your account.
2. Be sure to save the file to your desktop computer rather than just open the resource.
3. Open the file with Adobe Acrobat Reader. (You only need the free version!)
4. Select File>Print and then ​ensure the printer settings are correct.

I recommend printing at High Quality for the ​most accurate and highest print quality.​

If you’re having trouble printing a PDF, please be sure that you’re opening the PDF with the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. Printing PDF files from your web browser or the Preview app frequently cause errors such as black boxes behind images, fonts not printing correctly, etc.

1. Open the PDF file with Adobe Acrobat Reader
2. Click “Print”
3. In the “Page Sizing & Handling” section, select “Shrink Oversized Pages” if needed.
4. Click on “Advanced”
5. Check the “Print as Image” box.
6. Print the document

FAQPrintPDF - FAQ & Support

All resources are designed to be printed on 8.5×11 paper. Be sure to select ‘fit to page’ when printing your resource to ensure that important parts of the page aren’t being cut off during the printing process.

IMPORTANT: Resources that are designed to be printed on Avery labels must be printed at actual size in order to line up correctly on the label sheet.

If you open the file in your internet browser, Preview app, temporary files, or downloads you will often experience errors. All PDFs should be opened in Adobe Acrobat Reader. (The free version is all you need!)

If opened correctly, you should see a light gray background like this:

Here is how to open the file in Adobe:
1. Download and save the file to your computer (somewhere other than the downloads folder).
2. Right click the file name and choose Open in Adobe Acrobat.

If you have opened the resource in Adobe Acrobat, and are still having difficulty, make sure your copy of Adobe is up to date by downloading the most recent version. Open Adobe Acrobat Reader and click Help > Check for Updates on the top toolbar.

After 2 years of using this resource I can say that it dramatically helped my usually low performing students be recognized as in the top 10% of growth in the state. This is a must have for any 5th grade teacher.

I love this resource! It was thorough and fun. The kids had a great time going through the various stations. The activities really helped to reinforce their understanding of probability. It was a hit and I will be using this for many years to come. Thank you!

I had purchased other flip books in the past and found them tricky or time-consuming. Not the case with this one! Very simple to use and will be a friendly tool to communicate important information with parents.

This is the best tool for organized groups! The kids love the timer and I love how it is color-coded for 2 minutes and 1 minute. I use this every day for reading and math centers!
