I love to create activities for my students because I know exactly what they like and what they need. I spend a lot of time creating and sometimes, I make mistakes. A typo here, a missing word there. Even though I carefully proof my work and someone else looks it over for me too, a mistake occasionally slips by. It's usually my students who find the mistake. And when they do, I tell them they can clip up. (I use the clip chart.) They have become quite proficient little editors! And then the first thing I do when I get home is fix the mistake and re-upload the product to my teaching store. I probably should leave out the part about how I freak out all day until I can get home and fix it! I take such pride in my work and take any mistake very seriously.
My students find mistakes in my activities, mistakes in our Journeys activities, mistakes in other teachers' activities. Let's face it, we are all human and we are allowed to make mistakes. After all, isn't that what we like to instill in our students? No one is perfect, right? I know I'm not!
Just this week, my first graders noticed I had the wrong reading target skill up on my focus board. So, if you purchased my Journeys Through the Year...First Grade Edition, you will want to download it again. And, my kindergartners noticed they were missing a "g" when we were building -ag words. So, if you purchased my Let's Build Words...Kindergarten Word Families Edition, you will want to download that again! Yup! It happens!
So, here is the deal I'd like to make with you. If you purchase any of my products and you notice a mistake, please EMAIL me and let me know. And if the mistake hasn't already been fixed, then I will offer you a free item from my store, up to $5.00 in value, to show my appreciation for bringing it to my attention.
Please do not leave the mistake in the Q&A section of Teachers Pay Teachers or in your feedback. Discrete is always the way to go! That's what I do when I notice a mistake in someone's product.
Oh! One more thing! Before you email me to let me know about a mistake, please check to see if I caught it first. To do this, go to TpT and click on My TpT. When you do this, the following screen opens up...
Click on My Purchases to see all the products you bought. Scan them and look for the words "Newly Revised Re-Download." Under that, it says "Description of Revision." Click on that to see what I changed. I will always write the mistake I fixed. If you don't see this, then my students probably haven't caught the mistake yet and you should email me to let me know.
I look forward to hearing from you! I think! LOL!
