  1. These ideas and materials look great! I was excited about purchasing them but discovered that it’s only available by zip drive, not PDF. I wish you would consider making it available in PDF format. I would purchase it.

        1. Hi Michele.

          The files are compressed to make them easier for you to download.
          Once you download the file, you will need to right click it and select Extract All. That will open a folder for the black and white no prep worksheets and a folder for the colored centers.
          You will need to unzip both of those folders as well by doing the same right click – Extract All. That will give you the pdfs to print.
          It sounds like you got the no prep worksheets unzipped, but you need to go unzip the colored centers printables as well.
          I hope that solves your problem. If you have any other issues you can email me via our contact page, and we’ll figure it out.


    1. Hi Penny.
      My store is on TeachersPayTeachers, and people buy there from all over the world. You can definitely pay using British pounds. I think they have both credit card option and Paypal.
      TPT runs the checkout, so if you want more information about payment options, send them a quick message, and they would be happy to answer those for you.
      Let me know if I can be of further help.

    1. Hi Shaun.
      They are only available in a set at this time. Most of the pages in the Pre-k theme packs are centers. We’ve just included a few worksheets for those who use them.

      If you are planning to use more than one of the themes, the best deal we offer is the growing bundle. It currently has 6 themes, and each time I add a new unit, the price goes up. However, if you’ve already bought the pack, you get all of the additional added units for free. Awesome! That means you’ll get 4-10 more units free when you buy it now.
      I hope that’s helpful.
