My First Paid Product Listed! Yay for Me!

Now I am really excited! I just completed my first full Unit Packet for the book Muggie Maggie by Beverly Clearly. I am really proud of this accomplishment! This packet can accompany any teacher who is reading this book as a read aloud, shared reading or literature circle group. The full product is about 10 pages and has many great graphic organizers, vocabulary worksheets and a comprehension test. The product is up and posted in my TpT store. I think I have also figured out the kinks of power point! I am now ready to move full speed ahead in creating lots more products. My goal is to create 2 products a week! Wish me LUCK!
This is my cover page and just one of my sample pages.

My First Product!

I am SUPER EXCITED!!!!! I finally posted my first TpT Product! Since my first product has to be a freebie, I did a simple following directions activity sheet that I have used in the past with my students for Back to School. I use it to show the importance of following directions. I am still getting the hang of power point, so right now it is taking me forever to finish one page. But a few more products under my belt then I would have mastered Power Point! Please feel free to check out this product and leave comments and feedback! Click on my store for the freebie and access to my other products as I create them!

Books and Bagels Oh My!

School is in full swing here in Tennessee. This is my second year being an Instructional Coach at my school and I love it! As soon as I got back from Vegas it was full swing ahead and my first task was cleaning and organizing the teacher book room! This year I am so fortunate to get to work with Alexandria of Classroom Action with Ms. Jackson. She is also the second instructional coach at my school! We are super excited to be working together again!
It took us about 2 weeks to get everything we wanted and we couldn’t be more excited with the result. Check out the before and after photos of our awesome book room. We launched the book with a Books and Bagels event for the teachers. We got this great idea from Latoya of Flying into First.

  The bookroom was such a mess and disorganized. We had so much stuff in the room. It definitely was not teacher friendly! The new space has easy walk ways and everything is very clean! On the tables are some of the give always that we gave to the teachers during our Books and Bagels Event.

Yummy bagels from Panera for our Books and Bagels Event. It was a hit with the teachers! They were so appreciative of everything and especially the food!

Back to School!

This summer has flown by! I can't believe school has already started!!!! The month of July was an exciting one for me as I launched my brand and attended the Teachers Pay Teachers Conference! I had an amazing time meeting tons of blogger friends and learning so much about TpT. I am super excited to start creating and selling products and taking my brand to the next level! Below are just a few pics from Vegas from the conference! Enjoy!

I had all of my blogger logo items shipped to Vegas for the conference! I was ready to meet and mingle!!!!

The Meet and Greets were awesome! Met some really cool people! Especially other newbies like me!
ad a great time connecting with these lovely ladies! My highlight was meeting Kimberly of KG Fonts!!!! She loved my blog design using her fonts!
Hanging with my good fiend Alexandria of Classroom Action with Jackson. We had a blast at the conference and learned so much!
