    Hi! I am new to Toothy and already in love with the Reading! I am trying to print them but I am having a hard time getting the answer sheets (recording sheets) and other items (checklist etc) to print. Is there something I am missing? Thank you!

      Hi Marisa!
      Thank you so much for purchasing my Toothy Task Kits! I’m sorry you’re having trouble printing it. This can sometimes happen with image heavy files like this one. There is an easy fix for this issue, though. First, make sure you have the most current version of Adobe Reader. You can find it here: https://get.adobe.com/reader/.
      Make sure you download the file and save it to your computer before opening it.
      It sounds like you are either opening with an old version of Adobe Reader or if you are on a Mac, you may be opening the file in “Preview”. That is often the default setting so be sure to check that. With a Mac, try opening Adobe Reader first (rather than just double clicking on the file), then “open with” the file in Adobe Reader.
      If that doesn’t work, try this advice from TpT Tech Support:

      1) Open the PDF file with Adobe Reader

      2) Click ‘print’

      3) Click on ‘advanced’

      4) Check the ‘print as image’ box, and this should cover all potential issues

      This has worked for me every time I run into an issue, but if you are still having trouble TPT Support will help you further. They are wonderful and quick, and will be able to guide you through solving any issues you are still having that are beyond my tech level. You can submit a ticket by scrolling to the bottom of the homepage and clicking on ‘Contact Us’

      I hope your class enjoys the unit and thank you again for visiting my store!

      Hi Connie!

      I actually just launched 3rd Grade Reading Toothy this week! I have so many awesome individual 3rd Grade Toothy resources available as well as a bundle!
