Lisa said...

I haven't been able to download this. When I click the link, the 4shared site comes up, then the whole page disappears. I've tried several times, so I'm not sure why it's having this problem :(

Barbara said...

Another winner ...thanks.
Love the "new look" to your blog too!

Rachelle said...

Wow! This is a LOT of work and YOU ARE APPRECIATED SO MUCH! You are wonderful at creating these! Do you use word or powerpoint to create these? Or something else? Whatever you do....it's fab!

Mrs. Evans said...

Ok so I have a mac and I have the newest version of adobe and it still won't work. The words are blurry...Any other ideas about what I can do?

Michelle said...

Hey Mrs. Evans,
Can you email me? I may be able to help you out.

EmilyM said...

Thanks for creating and sharing this unit. I plan on doing some of the activities tomorrow with my son. :)

Ms. Gonzalez said...

Thank you so so so so much! I was so excited to see that you had made a Valentine's Day Unit! It is very cute and I can't wait to use it. Thank you again! :)

t. ulch said...

I am also having difficulty downloading this unit. I can get some graphics but some of the words are blacked out! Anybody have any ideas?

scrapcraft said...

I downloaded it but mine looked like something was wrong with it. It had all of these black marks on it. Where the instructions were supposed to be, there were only black marks. Could this be because I am using a Mac now and not a PC? By the way, thanks for these. They are great!

Lindsay said...

Squeel! Love it!! WTG! Thanks for sharing!

Michelle said...

It seems that MAC users are still having issues with 4shared - please email me if you have a problem downloading and I can help!

Little Munchkins Childcare said...

Thank you sooooo much. Love it. You don't know how much this helps. Thanks again.

Holly said...

Thanks Michelle! This is fantastic! I know my little guys will love counting the pictures and delivering the valentines to the right mailboxes (and many more of the fun projects)! I don't know how you find the time to make all the wonderful activities...but we really appreciate them! :) Many thanks from our house!

maryanne @ mama smiles said...

Thank you so much! My Valentines Day loving 4yo will be thrilled to have this!!!

Dawn said...

It's opening fine for me, and it's ADORABLE! Has anyone told you lately how creative you are? Oh, and what program do you use to design your pages?

By the way, we put an IN postcard in the mail for you today, so tell Channing to start watching the mailbox! :)

Mozer said...

Fantastic as usual Michelle! :)

Heather J. said...

Great printables! Thank you.

The Mom I Want To Be said...

Awesome as usual, thanks! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry when I read that you 'whipped this up'. I'm just starting to make printables and am spending hours on each page...

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I love all the skills this unit covers.

Michelle said...

Thank you so much, these are wonderful!!!

Crystal said...

Love it, thanks for sharing! I have a couple questions about what to do with a few things. I read the direction pages but sometimes I'm a little dense. ;-) What do I use the cupcakes with? The owls? What do I do with p.51-60? What about the hearts w/ #'s on p. 61? What are the names of these activities so I can reread them in the directions? Thanks so much for sharing your hard work!

tummymummy said...

Wow! Where do you get the time to create such fantastic and cute units? They are a big help as (as one of the other also people said) I am overseas and have trouble getting stuff for my kids in English. The variety of tasks shared in your units is fantastic. Only one problem now - I need a new printer to cope with it all! Keep up the good work.

Katie Smith said...

This is the one I am downloading but having trouble with. :)

Thank you! This unit is so awesome! My kids saw me printing it and are very excited to start. Love the conversation heart graphing and measuring the bears with conversation hearts.
