Frequently Asked Questions
What are your qualifications?
My academic qualifications include a BA in Linguistics, a BEd in Primary Education, a post-baccalaureate certificate in Early Years Education, as well as an AMS Early Elementary (6–9) credential.
My teaching experience includes substitute teaching in mainstream classes, a year at a bilingual school in Mexico, and 10 years with my own 6-9 class in a public Montessori program in Canada.
Are your resources appropriate for all ages?
Most of my resources are created for the 6–9 (Grades 1–3) age range.
Depending on your students you may find some things suitable for Kindergarten or for slightly older children.
What kind of spelling do you use in your resources?
At this time I only use US spelling in my activities.
It’s possible that one day I will make other versions (e.g., UK, Canada, Australia).
What kind of files will I get?
Files are either PDFs (printable activities) or PNGs (clip art). Initially your files may be bundled together in a ZIP file.
You can decompress a ZIP file easily on both Mac and PC. See the next question for more details.
How do I open a ZIP file?
On a Mac: Double click the ZIP file and it will automatically be decompressed. You will then be able to access the individual PDFs.
On a PC: Press and hold (or right- click) the folder, select Extract All, and then follow the instructions.
How do I print the PDF files?
Settings vary by printer. Each resource comes with a "Start Here" file where you will see detailed printing and preparation instructions.
In general, you should be printing at 100%. No scaling is necessary. Most of my activities require double-sided printing on 8.5" x 11" paper for best results.
Can I edit the files?
No. At this time, I do not sell any editable files.
Can I share the files with other people?
When you purchase one of my activities or clip art designs it comes with an individual license. This means that it can only be used by one individual.
You can purchase a second license if you'd like to gift something to a friend. The gifted license will cover the one person you give it to.
If you'd like to purchase something for yourself and also for a friend, you should add a quantity of 2 to the cart.
Are prices listed in US dollars?
The default currency on the website is US dollars.
There is also a drop down menu in the top right corner where you can choose to view prices in CAD, AUD, EUR, or GBP.
Will my purchases be shipped to me?
No. All resources and clip art are delivered electronically through a download link after you check out.
