TPT Seller Challenge Week 1: Makeover Madness - Saddle up for Second Grade

TPT Seller Challenge Week 1: Makeover Madness

Hey ya'll! I've teamed up with Sparkling in Second, Peppy Zesty Teacher, Teach Create Motivate, and Third in Hollywood for the TPT Seller Challenge. These ladies have helped get my butt into gear and motivated me to get some things done in my TPT store that I've been putting off. I'll be participating in a 4 week challenge to step up my game! 

Week 1 was all about product makeovers. I became a seller on TPT in September of 2012. Over the past 2.5 years I've grown so much as a seller and I like to think that I finally found my niche. My Place Value Activity Pack: Hundreds, Tens, and Ones was my very FIRST product uploaded to TPT. I was so PROUD of what I had accomplished. After it was uploaded, I went to school the next day and could not shut up about it to my partner teacher at the time. We immediately put it good use and it quickly became a BEST SELLER in my TPT store

At the time I was very proud of what I had accomplished but when I looked at it now, it was something that needed a definite makeover with improved creative juices. When this challenge first started it was exactly what I needed to get this baby updated to MY current standards! After tweaking it over the past few days, I am super proud of how it has turned out.

When I got started on this it made my eyes hurt! I used free fonts, my backgrounds were somewhat blurry, and I hated the clip art. Most of my answer sheets were very plane without any sort of character at all. It got a complete facelift! 

What do you think?

It includes 5 task card activities to help teach and review place value up to 999. All of these activities can be used for whole or small group instruction. They can easily be placed in a center to independent practice or done with a partner. 

If you own this unit PLEASE go redownload it NOW! :)
