End of July Sale!

When I logged onto Teachers Pay Teachers this morning, I saw my store featured on the front page! It was so cool to see my brand new logo up there with 7 other teacher authors!

I am so proud of all of the work I have done over the past 30 days. I’ve created a lot of material and I have a ton of plans ready for the fall. To celebrate, everything in my store is on sale through July 31. I will be posting several products over the next week so keep checking back and keep stocking up!

My New Logo!!

I am so excited to share my brand new logo created by Ashley with Teach Create Motivate! She is featuring a branding package that was exactly what I was looking for!

The process was super simple. I saw her post on Instagram about the branding package and I emailed her for more information. She emailed me back in minutes!! I explained to her what I was looking for and provided the clip art I wanted to use. When I purchased the package, her next available date to start was July 18, which she confirmed in the email.

True to her word, she emailed me on July 18 to say she stared my package! In the 19th I received two sample headers. I absolutely loved one of them and told her to go ahead and move forward with that design! The next day she had the logo done as well-check it out:

I absolutely love it!! I wanted the train station feel to go along with the name and I wanted bright, vivid colors and kid friendly text! She totally hit the nail on the head with this logo! The matching header is just as cute!

If you need a branding package but are as graphic design challenged as I am, check out her site-the money is totally worth it!!

Mid July Check In

I know I know, I’m two days late with my check in but for a good reason! I finally took a little time off of the teacher grind and spent the weekend enjoying myself with family! Mu husband went out of town and although I missed him-it was nice to spend time with my parents, aunts & uncles and cousins!

First, it was an INCREDIBLE week for me on TPT. The Teachers Pay Teachers conference was this past week in Orlando, Florida. A hashtag called #spedtakesorlando was started on TPT. Authors added the hashtag to select products in their store and marked those products down to a $1. I sold more in a 48 hour span then I normally sell in 3 months! Look at this graph!

I am so excited that so many people are trying out my products! It was incredible to see so many people interested in what I do and I’m already getting great feedback!

I am also excited to say that I have all of my September plans done! I still need to create some of the materials, but I have a framework for each content area. Check it out!

So I can keep track, here is what I need to get done for each area, to make sure I stay ahead:

  • Reading: Comprehension Pretest/Post test, Emergent Reader, Guided Notes, samples
  • Language Arts: CVC word list
  • Math: Pre/Post test, interactive notes, scavenger hunt, task cards, samples
  • Science: weather notes, vocab cards, common storms, samples, water cycle notes, vocab cards, fold-able
  • Social Studies: Pre/Post test, pledge vocab, who am I reading passages,

I’m hoping to have all of that done by the end of the month, so I can spend August getting October/November prepped. YAY for being ahead!

My progress on my last set of goals: I got to 30 journals! Only 150 more to go! I started the scientific investigation items, but didn’t finish them yet. I actually pushed scientific investigation to October, so it was not as crucial as it originally seemed. I also finished the touch math product! I did not get to CVC file folders again and I’m guessing it’s just not important right now, so I am pushing it to the back burner.

Goals for the second half of July

  • Get all of the materials done that I listed above
  • Finish Oct. adapted materials for my lower students. I still need
    • Graphing Unit completed
    • Scientific Investigation Unit completed
    • Create Government unit
  • Print and prepare September Binder
  • Start creating a Special Ed teacher binder

I’ll check in on this list around August 1 (which is the due date for one of my closest friend’s first baby!!)
