FAQ – Help with your Teachers Pay Teachers Resources ~

The tips in this article will help buyers who have already purchased a resource from my Teachers Pay Teachers store. If you need additional help, you can email me directly at Jules@Caffeinequeenteacher.com. 

Where is the link to make my digital resource?

When you buy one of my Google Drive activities, you receive a pdf with a clickable link on one of the pages (usually page 3 or 4).

When you click the link, you’ll be prompted to make a copy of the resource. That digital resource will be sent directly to your Google Drive.

Once the digital file is in your Google Drive, you can assign it to students and set it so that each student receives his/her own editable copy. 

Check out the quick video below for more details.

How to find the LINK to make your digital copy:

1. The digital files from Teachers Pay Teachers come in the form of PDFs. The files will be labeled DIGITAL, but it is a PDF that you must open and click to make the digital file.

You’ll find all of the files in your “My Purchases” page on Teachers Pay Teachers.

2. Make sure you’re using the latest free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the PDF file. Adobe seems to have frequent updates that often cause people to have trouble opening files.

3. Be sure to download the file to your computer – don’t just print from the browser window. Go to your computer files and open the saved file with Adobe Acrobat Reader, NOT with the default preview program.

4. Once the PDF opens, you’ll click a link (usually on page 3 or 4) that will force a copy of the digital version of the file into your Google Drive – just like in the video above.

How to assign just one or two digital slides at a time ~

Here’s a link to another blog article I wrote about this topic:

How to Assign Just One or Two Slides in Google Classroom

Here’s a super quick set of directions:

1. To assign just a few of the slides at once, make another copy of the digital file and give it a different name.

2. Then delete the slides you don’t want to assign at that time.

3. Save the new file and assign that new set of slides you just made.
