Exciting day today! I opened my TpT store.
I've been thinking about doing it for a very long time. Mostly because I have been looking for a set of Lab Safety posters for my classroom, and I have been unable to find any that I like enough to buy.
My classroom is all new - finally got remodeled over the summer - and I only want to put things I love in it. And since I couldnt find posters I love, I decided to make my own. So I bit the bullet and purchased some of the cutest graphics out there - drawn by Ashley at www.thistlegirldesigns.com. Ashley has been very gracious and has helped walk me through the beginning stages of creating my own teaching materials using her graphics.
I have three thousand ideas spinning through my head! I feel like I have so much opportunity to create lessons and really cute materials!
I must admit I am a little worried that people will think the graphics I chose to use are too cutesy for high school. But the truth is, the kids love that kind of thing. I never saw so much envy as there is in my classroom when some students get stickers on their quizzes!
This is my first offering at TpT - its the free one. It includes a lot of different games for students and families to use at Thanksgiving. I remember going to my Aunt Ginny's house when I was a kid. Someone always brought color by number for the kids to do. And any time we are with Uncle Frank, we play a question and answer game that is the basis for my Name Five game.
