TPT Seller Challenge - Makeover Madness

I'm participating in the TPT Summer Challenge sponsored by Third in Hollywood, Sparkling in Second, Peppy Zesty Teacherista, and Teach Create Motivate. It's a four week challenge and this is week one: Makeover Madness.



I went back to the first products I created. The ones I'm redoing were some of my best sellers at the time. I started on TPT in 2012. A lot has changed since then - so many more fonts, graphics, more practice, and experience. My style has changed.


The "before" name was Reading to Learn About Community Helpers. I simplified the cover and changed the name. It's now called Writing About Community Helpers. The before title was too confusing.  I made the fonts and graphics bolder. I want buyers to know what the packet's about at a glance. 

I used different clip artists for the community helper graphics in the "before" packet (had to use graphics from different clip artists to find all I needed). I was able to use just Melonheadz for the community helpers graphics on the new one. It makes it more consistent and unified. I love that we have so many more choices for clip art now. 

I also added posters and student word lists to make the product more complete.

Head on over to see more of the makeovers HERE.

  4. Hi !

    I’m a teacher from Pflugerville ISD. I was asked to help with writing the science curriculum.

    I would like to ask for permission to include your chicken life cycle booklet as a resource for the other teachers.

    I would be so thankful.

    Thank you,
