Wemberly Worried~ Craft & Writing

I am linking up with Sparkling in Second, Peppy Zesty Teacherista, Third in Hollywood and Teach Create Motivate for Week 3 of the TPT Seller Challenge.

This week's challenge is to create a new product for your TPT store.

My cousin retired this year after teaching for 36 years.  She had over 1600 Scholastic Book Club Points that she let me have.  Isn't she awesome?  So I ordered some books for my classroom.  One of the books I ordered was Wemberly Worried.

I created this craft and writing and thought it would be cute for students to use as a Back to School activity to write about a time when he/she was worried.

The craft comes with 2 choices of writing paper.

To see this in my TPT store, just click the cover page below.

Makeover Madness~ Round 3

I am linking up again with Peppy Zesty Teacherista, Sparkling in Second, Third in Hollywood and Teach Create Motivate for another round of Makeover Madness.

Updating and reworking products can be a little addicting!  :)  

When looking through my store, I found one of my products that still had my maiden name on the cover... so I updated the cover, and then began making updates to the whole product to give it a more crisp look.

The product was originally intended as a Mother's Day craft.  Students cut and pasted the bee and then wrote "I love my mom 'bee'cause...".  This product can still be used for Mother's Day.  The following writing paper is included:

However, I made this product more generic so that it can be used during the Spring or when learning about insects.  There is writing paper included for students to draw a picture and then record something he/she learned about bees.

Bee Binder Covers

You know I can't resist cute bee clipart.  Tonight, I came across some really cute clipart... so I had to make something with it.

This coming school year I will be teaching first grade.  My students will be using 3 ring binders as their take home folder.  So I decided to create binder covers.

Here is a look at how they turned out:

TPT Seller Challenge: Week 2~ Dare to Dream

I am linking up with Sparkling in Second, Third in Hollywood, Peppy Zesty Teacherista and Teach Create Motivate for Week 2 of the TPT Seller Challenge.  This week is all about your hopes and dreams for your TPT business.

Here are my dreams for my business:

The extra income from my TPT's store has been such a blessing.  I love creating things to use with my kids in my classroom and it is such a blessing that other teachers are able to use my things as well.  

My husband recently purchased a new truck.  I have been using the extra income from my store to help pay towards the truck and our house.  

We have also been able to make renovations to our house.  Our first baby is due July 8th and I have been able to use money from my store to purchase a crib, a glider, car seat and more for our sweet baby boy.  His nursery is so adorable.  One day I would also like to be able to redo our back porch.

Lastly, I strive to work hard creating things so that we have extra money to spend when we go on vacation!

So, what are your dreams for your TPT business?  Link up for the TPT Seller Challenge: Dare to Dream.

Makeover Madness~ round 2

While I am home relaxing for the summer I am working on updating some of my products.  I am linking up with these ladies for another round of Makeover Madness.

Today I updated my "Easy as Pie" Craft and Writing.  This is a simple craft that you can use in the Fall or anytime of year for that matter.  Students simply cut and paste the easy pie craft and then write and draw about something that comes easy for them or something that they do well.

Here is the updated look:

Makeover Madness!

I am linking up with Sparkling in Second, Teach Create Motivate, Third in Hollywood and Peppy Zesty Teacherista for their TPT Seller Challenge.

Week 1's challenge is to revamp a product.  I have decided to work on my Writing Paper with Picture Boxes.  Here is a look at the before and after:

Not only did I update the cover, but I added 12 new papers, making a total of 48.  The purpose of these papers is to give students an illustration box and then lines for writing.  Simply print the pages and students can go to work.  These papers are great for displaying writing in the hallway or for daily journal writing.

Here are some examples of the papers:
