I opened a Teachers Pay Teachers store. I wrestled with the idea for a long time, because, like most of you, I feel like I already spend way too much of my own money on my classroom, and it was nice to be able to offer stuff for free. And don't worry! I am still going to offer most of my stuff right here--free for the taking! But it would be nice to earn a little money now and then, you know, to support my habit. (Don't panic. It's nothing too nefarious--mostly books, glitter, plastic storage bins, etc.)
- The full-color emergent reader seen above (you have to put it together, but I show you how!)
- A black-line master for the same emergent reader.
- Pocket chart cards to retell the story.
- A class book template.
- Sentence-building cards for individual practice.
So if you want it, (and it's free, so why not?) hop on over to my Teachers Pay Teachers store and grab it! While you're there, you can follow me! You know you want to...
And if I could ask a little favor...
Would you mind telling me what you think? This is my first stab at selling anything I've created (even though I'm "selling" it for $0.00). I know it's a little rough around the edges. I will NOT be making a cute shaped book again--my next book will have straight edges! See...I'm already learning. But I would love to hear suggestions about what you like and what you would like to see. If people are going to spend their hard-earned money (and trust me--I know exactly what you had to do to get that money!), I want it to be quality and something they can really use in their classrooms. (But be nice.)
On Friday, I will give away a $25 gift certificate to Teachers Pay Teachers to one lucky person who left me a comment here on this post.
Thanks for your support!
And I will be back tomorrow with the next part of my measurement unit. For free.
