TPT Seller Challenge Week 2: Dare To Dream!

Happy Weekend!
I'm having a great summer,
but the days are packed...packed...packed....
and it seems like I have a small window
to do some blogging... nap time and weekends!

I'm excited to be here for week 2 of the 
TpT Seller Challenge hosted by

This week's TpT Challenge is Dare To Dream

I'm fairly new to the TpT world and haven't made a ton of things. I try to focus on one or two things at a time that I need for my students.  As I get more comfortable I hope to expand and do more. Some of my dreams are...

Family Time- I would love to use TpT earnings to do fun family things with my husband and son. Not just the usual go to the park, have a picnic, etc.  Those are all super fun things to do and we do them a lot... what I want to do is those special extras.  Maybe going to a water park for the day, or to a special place for the weekend to get-a-way spontaneously. I'd love to just always jump at the chance to meet up with people and do things to make memories and not worry about money.   

TpT Conference- I really want to go to Vegas for the TpT conference.  I have met so many wonderful people through blogging and IG that I really would love to meet them and see what else I can learn. I'd love to save money from TpT to be able to join in on the fun.  Maybe next year???

Fun- I just want to be able to go out and do something for myself, my family or a friend.... to have fun.  Offer to treat someone to something special or just to be making memories.  I guess that goes along with my first goal, however sometimes I feel that us teachers don't get enough time to spoil ourselves or the people that we love.  

New House- My husband and I are in the process of building a new house.  We don't have an eta yet but it should be sometime this fall (you know, the perfect time for a teacher to move!!!) I'm hoping that we can really take the time to put into it what we want to get it started and off on the right track.  Sometimes money can hold you back from doing certain things to the house or adding certain decorations or splurging on something new like a comforter set.  I'm hoping that I can use my TpT earnings to help that process out a little bit more!

Be sure to stop by one of the blogs I mentioned above to read and connect with all of the other dreamers out there.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Makeover Madness: Week one TPT Challenge

Hi there! Happy weekend. I am excited
to be a part of the TPT Seller Challenge
hosted by 4 fabulous bloggers. 
See Below!

I have been absent from my TPT world lately.
Life has just gotten in the way. 
I have on my summer list to do some makeovers,
so this was the perfect way to get started.

One of my best sellers is a set of task cards
that I use at the beginning of the school year. 
I have three sets of them. One for addition with 
regrouping, one for subtraction with regrouping
and one for place value. I also have them linked together
in a bundle pack.
My goal is to revamp the whole entire bundle,
but for now I have the first set done. 

Here is what I started with----

In my defense, it wasn't a bad start.
I use them a lot with students,
especially when I'm trying to do some assessing
at the beginning of the year. 
I decided to change it up a bit and
I LOVE how it turned out. 

I would love for you to check it out!
It's going to be FREE for a flash and then 
discounted. I'd love some feedback too!
I'm super excited to get on the next product
for this bundle. :)
