How do I print out your free material?

Click on the link, then click “download” and a PDF document will open. Then click on the “save” icon and save the PDF document to your computer.

You will need to have the latest version of Adobe Reader installed on your computer, which you can download free here. If you do not use the latest upgrade of Adobe Reader, the document will not print correctly. You may get black boxes, graphics may be missing, or the document will stall out and not print.

Why can’t I can’t print your PDF files?

Please try each of the following solutions.

  • Download the latest version of Adobe Reader.
  • Don’t try to print from the website. Right click on the PDF file and SAVE it to your computer. Print that file, rather than printing the link on my website
  • Restart your computer.
  • Unplug your printer, wait 30 seconds, plug it back in, and try printing again.
  • Wait until the next day and try to print again. Try to print at the least busy time.
  • Try to print the material on another computer and printer.
  • Some readers have reported problems with Microsoft 10. They are not able to use the default browser that comes with Microsoft 10, and are using Chrome or Internet Explorer 11 instead.

I’m truly sorry that I cannot help every teacher, but I really do not have the resources and knowledge to know why the files are not downloading correctly on your computer. If you still cannot  print after you have tried all of the above, then, unfortunately,  I have no other ideas. The good news is that often teachers tell me they wait a while and they are able to print them at a later time!

 I don’t use PayPal. Can I mail you a donation?

Yes. Please email me for my address!  Thank you so much for your support.

Why didn’t my comment show up?

To keep down spam, we moderate all comments. It will show up within 24 hours, but usually much faster. You may remain autonomous when you comment. Your email will not be published unless you specify it.

Why have you added a donate button?

This site is totally funded by donations and the small amount of items in my store. I need your help to keep the content available and to keep the website going.

Do you know there is a mistake in your music/worksheet?

I try to proofread everything, but I miss things. Please help me out by letting me know and I will fix it as soon as possible.

What software program do you use? Where do you get your clip art? What program do you use for your music?

I draw almost everything myself  in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. My composing software is Finale. I also use InDesign and Pages. Because everyone has different computers and abilities, I cannot recommend specific software. I usually use Photoshop for pre-reading music.

Can I use your art and/or music on some of the things I make for my students? 

No, I own the copyright of the art and music and it must be used only in the form that is downloaded from this site.

How To Print on Both Sides of Flashcards and other PDF documents.

Download the file by clicking the link under the image.

The file (called a PDF) will include both the front and back of the cards. I suggest you scroll through the PDF file to see all the pages before you print.  When you are ready, open the printer dialog box.

Under the Pages to Print instructions in the pop-up box, select “Pages”, and then type the page numbers of the front of the cards. For example, if the font of the cards are on pages 1, 2, and 3, type 1-3. Select “Print.” Only the card numbers you typed in will print.

In order to print on the back, insert one of the pages you just printed back into your printer and type the PDF page number that contains the back of the cards. Do the same for every page that you intend to have a printed back. You will need to know which side of the paper your printer prints on, so test that out before you waste a lot of paper and ink. Every printer has a different way to do that.

Adobe Reader updates the PDF reader program regularly,  so in the future, the box below may look different, but the general directions will be the same.
