Future Followers Fest: First Dozen Downloads Free!

Dear Future Followers,
Do you enjoy using carefully crafted free materials in your classroom or in your homeschool space? If so, thank you for clicking the Follow Me button at the top of my shop on TpT! 

That little effort is about to pay off in a big way, I hope: The first DOZEN downloads of every new product in my store will now be free to followers. Additionally, the first ten raters who send a ratings screenshot to me at teachingsajoy@gmail.com will receive directly from me any nonbundled item in my store for free.

Since you’re about to be a follower, there is good news for you. If you’ve ever wanted one of my products but were tapped out already on your personal school spending–I get it—this is your chance! Every product in my store that hasn’t yet been downloaded a dozen times is now free. As soon as I hit the magic number of downloads, the price will be changed.

Also, be one of the first 10 to rate the product fairly, send me a screenshot at teachingsajoy@gmail.com, and earn yourself whatever other unbundled item you request in that note.

Teachers Pay Teachers has been a blessing to me and my family from both sides of the storefront. Through purchases, it has given me back tons of time that I could spend with my family and friends. Through sales, it offers me the chance to reach far beyond the walls of my own classroom to, hopefully, enrich the lives of students—and save their teachers that magic “T” word. (Time is absolutely a teacher’s most prized possession. NOT all of it should be spent on schoolwork!)

Of course, TpT has also been my “side hustle” and has given me just a teeny bit of financial confidence. However, since after 5 years of uploading my heart and soul, I’m still only earning a cup or two of coffee each day and need those coffee funds in retirement now more than ever, I’m eagerly looking for ways to boost my sales.

Did you know that the fewer ratings a product has, the lower it appears in a search result? Awesome products may be on page 132 of a search! I don’t know about you, but I never had time to go digging that deeply for an activity. I’m hoping that this scheme of mine will be mutually beneficial, so please spread the word about this amazing opportunity! #FDDF:FirstDozenDownloadsFree

With love,
Sally Phillips

Back to School – Number Counting Posters

It might be “Christmas in July” but it’s “BACK TO SCHOOL” in August!  Here’s a photo of my boxwood bushes done up with lights during the past holiday season.christmas in july freebieWell, it’s not Christmas yet but I do have a FREEBIE for you.  Read on.

I’ve just finished a GIANT file of numeral and number counting posters.  The posters have mosaic backgrounds.  I purchased these papers from Bev’s Learning Hut and I couldn’t be more pleased with how beautiful they turned out!  Best of all, mosaic designs have been in existence for a long time and they NEVER go out of style!

There are a total of SEVEN sets of colors in the priced file.  I’m offering one set as a FREEBIE.  (Merry Christmas in July!)  The colors included in the larger file are red, blue, green, pink, orange, purple, and light blue.  You’re getting the red set with blue fish!

Each set of posters includes numerals zero through twenty.  There are colorful fish displayed on the posters to match each numeral shown.  The children can practice counting skills by counting the fish on any given poster.  If you display the posters at the children’s eye level on your classroom wall, they can practice counting during their spare time.

Each numeral is approximately 7 centimeters tall.  The numeral font that I used is a ideal for modeling correct numeral formation.  The numeral “4” is formed with straight lines.  The line on the numeral “9” is straight so that is does not appear like an upside down “6”.

I have created these poster with simplicity in mind so that educators can use them to focus on a few of the related Common Core Math Standards for kindergarten.  Those are:

1.  Writing numerals 0 to 20.

2.  Reading numbers 0 to 20.

3.  Counting up to 20 objects (with numbers 0 to 10 in scattered formation) and naming the corresponding number.

You will need colored ink to print the posters.  I recommend printing them with white cardstock paper.  If you’d like, laminate them for long lasting use.

The slide show below shows some of the posters from the large file.  You might notice that I was able to print without a white edge around my pages.  The mosaic backgrounds are very attractive when there is NO WHITE BORDER.  Plus, printing without the white edge means that you won’t spend any time trimming.  I’ve included a tutorial on how to print without the white border.  You can also view this blog post to see picture directions:  Borderless Printing Tips for Teachers.
