1. This week I was away from my computer. I took a road trip down to Charlotte, North Carolina. After living there for 8 years, it is like another home to me! While in Charlotte, I was able to visit with one of my friends that I taught with for 6 years! You know those people that make going to work that much better! I definitely miss working with her. We didn't take a picture, though! Then I took a beach trip with one of my best friends! For the past two years we have gone to the beach and camped. Although I miss hanging out with these girls, now that I am in Ohio, I LOVE having friends down south to visit with!
5. I saw the posts about the TpT Seller Challenge, while I was away. I really wanted to join in on this fun, but didn't have my computer with me, so I had to wait until I got home! This week's challenge was to makeover a product. I decided to makeover two of my first products. These were created using Microsoft Word. I didn't know how to use Powerpoint at the time that I created these products. Here are the two that I have updated, as of now. One of them didn't even have a cover. This has motivated me to makeover a few other products, as well! One of the products aligns with the Common Core Standards. The other product is aligned with Common Core, but also matches with the first grade Reading Street Unit 1. Click on the pictures below to grab a copy of these updated products!
