My New TpT Journey!

Saturday, November 28, 2015
Hi, friends!  I know I’ve been absent from my blog for quite some time, but now I’m back!

I’ve finally uploaded my very first paid product to TpT this week!  I’m so excited to begin my new journey!  I’ve been a member/seller for over a year, but never got up the courage to put my ideas out there {it’s scary, you guys}.  I went to the TpT Conference in Vegas this year, and I left feeling SO inspired!  And just when I was ready to get to work, life became incredibly busy, because I started a new job!  I’m in a new district and I’ve moved down from second grade to kindergarten!  I’ve taught kinder before and I love LOVE the littles, but it’s a lot of work and prep!  Sadly, I didn’t have any of my teacher stuff from my prior kinder years, so I had to start fresh this year.  I’m soooo thankful for TpT for saving me in the prep department this year!  Greg Smedley-Warren, Deanna Jump, Deedee Wills, and Marsha McGuire have been total lifesavers!

So anyways.  I love pirates.  My students last year loved pirates {and they are totally my inspiration for this new product!}  I went to the Bahamas earlier this year, and I was super sad that there weren’t any hanging around.  

Also, I love this guy:

In honor of all of this pirate love, my newest product is called "Surrender Your Booty!", mostly because I just love saying that!  I created it for my second grade littles last year, and they had so much fun with it!  I’ve broken it up into three parts: an ELA edition, a Math edition, and a discounted bundle with both. 

Arrrrgh you ready to see what’s included? {Sorry, I had to go there}

Since I'm now teaching kinder, I decided to make a version for those guys, too.  That will be coming up next!  I had so much fun making this one, and I am excited and anxiously awaiting my first TpT sale.  Speaking of sales, I will be participating in the Cyber Monday sale going on November 30th and December 1st!  I have so many other ideas that I can’t wait to get started on, too!  Thank you so much for supporting me on this journey, and I hope all of you have an amazing December!

Happy Teaching!
