You understand that this summary supplements and is incorporated in our Terms and Conditions of Use.
We strongly encourage you to read our agreement in its entirety and be sure you agree to all terms before purchasing any of our products, but we will start with some frequently asked questions below. Also, if you have any questions, please email me at Jennifer@SimplyKinder.com.
Our resources are for one classroom use only. That means that if you are the teacher/educator and teaching a class/students, you have permission to use our resources upon downloading from our website or one of our third party platforms with your students year after year.
If you are NOT the original purchaser/downloader, you must make your own purchase/download from us and then download the materials for your classroom or household.

Can I share this resource with the teacher next door? No, not unless they have purchased a copy. We encourage you to work together, but since our resources are for one classroom use only we ask that everyone download/purchase their own copy.
I tutor students, can I share your resources with the families I tutor? Yes and no. Can you share the file with your families – no. Can you send home a page or two as homework like a classroom teacher would do – yes.
I teach homeschool, can I share your resources with my homeschool friends? If you mean can you share the file with other families to do with their students – no. If you mean can I teach a class using your resources to a class with other homeschool families, yes. If you are teaching the class, you can use our resources if you downloaded them.
No, our resources cannot be used for commercial use on any websites (such as Outschool), platforms, or courses.
No. Our resources are meant to be used as supplemental to partner with good teaching methods.
