Makeover Madness

I am so excited to be part of the TPT Seller Challenge.  I have been a TPT seller for over three years now and have learned so much about making and improving my products.  There is one little (OK huge) area I have totally neglected…. Social Media!  This challenge is just what I needed to jump right into it.  I set up my Facebook page last night and am actually blogging.  So far so good!

Luckily for me the first challenge was right up my alley.  Makeover Madness!!

This past year I have spent A LOT of time updating my products!  I have a few big ones I still want to tackle this summer but for this challenge I thought I would update one of my first products that was still hanging out in my store in it's original state. This one was made in PowerPoint (thank goodness) but still needed a lot of help! Like most sellers I started out not owning much in the way of fonts and clipart and pulled my products together with what I could find for free.  Fast forward 3 years later and I have more clipart than I know what to do with (& still want need more).  A new border, fonts & clipart give this product a brand new look!

I didn't stop at the cover though… This baby needed a total facelift!  This product included an anchor chart, center activity and worksheets.  I was happy with these activities and was able to spruce them up again with new fonts and clipart.  

Here are the updated activities.  I also added some extra versions of the number cards for the center activity.  This allows more students to work on this activity at the same time and the variety is great for students who are working on this skill for awhile.  The center can be used again & again but just with a different set of cards.  

I also had a few activities that I had used with my class but had never made it into the original product.  There is a booklet all about counting by 5s that is great for introducing and practicing the concept.  The colour version works great as a class book that can be laminated and used from year to year.   I also added a set of number puzzles.  They are such a fun way to practice counting skills.  Both activities are included in colour and black & white.

To celebrate the new look this product will be on sale for 1/2 price for the rest of the week.  Click HERE to check it out!
