    I am trying to find the rest of the themes you offer…I have bought several in the past. Have they moved?

    • We are in the process of revising and updating all of the themes to offer even more activities. In the next few months, all the themes will be loaded to this page. If you’d like a theme that isn’t up (meaning I’m not done revising it yet):), let me know and I’ll email the theme to you. All of the themes currently on this page are the same themes, but we’ve updated some of the content/links. If you’d like a list of the themes you can choose from, email me at: thepreschooltoolbox@gmail.com – thanks so much! Darla

    I purchased some of your units last year and I loved them. Since then the harddrive died on my computer. Is there any way I can get them today. I’m planning a transportation unit right now and I’m missing your activities, poems and songs.

    • Christine – I emailed the Transportation theme via a zipped file. Please let me know what other themes you’d like and I’ll send them your way. Eventually, I will get ALL of them back up! Thanks so much for the message!

  3. Shelby says:

    Do you have any idea when you hope to upload the rest of the themes? I love all your work so much and its SO helpful! Thank you for all you do

    • Shelby – ALL of the themes will be loaded by the end of July/first part of August. I’m working on revising, but it is a tedious process. They WILL be up before school begins in August..PROMISE! Thanks for your comment!

    Hi,

    I purchased two themes on October 19th. They where the Transportation theme and Fall Theme for preschool and Kindergarten. I realized after I purchased them I don’t have a zip file. Is there anyway you can send it another way?

    Thank you,
    Michelle

    • Michelle – I emailed you – if you right click, you can extract the contents of the zipped file (right click and then EXTRACT ALL) to the same download folder destination. They are large themes thus the zipped file. I can email the components to each theme, but it would take several emails to break them up. Let me know what works for you! Thanks again for your comment!

  6. Debi says:

    Is the Christmas theme Christ centered?

    • Debi – the Christmas theme includes an intro that is Christ-centered, but the activities are designed around ideas that could be used in a public school classroom, too. Hope that helps.

  7. Shelby K. says:

    I was wondering if you had any other themes in the works besides the above ones? I love all the themes I have bought so far 🙂

    Thank you for the great ideas and worksheets
    Shelby K.
