I don't know if you could call this a "masterpiece", but I wanted to continue my "On/Off Topic" series with some "Fall On/Off Topic" cards. And, in keeping with the others I have made, this one is a freebie. (Click on the picture below to be taken to the product.)
I made the first batch of these cards in the Spring. I was working with a student using Badger State Speechy's On Topic Packet!, when I realized that the student didn't understand the terms On/Off Topic. I made the cards then printed, laminated, and cut them out, and then took them to school. Within 1 session, the first grader understood the vocabulary and the teacher started using the phrase on/off topic in the classroom.
So far, I have Spring, Back to School, and now Fall sets (all free!). I plan on using the Back to School & Fall as a review for that student. I hope you can use it!

Dare to Dream: TPT Seller Challenge Week 2

These fabulous ladies are hosting the 4 week long TPT Seller Challenge:
(Click on the button to be taken to their blogs.)
                                                 

                                                
This week is all about your dreams: what you hope to achieve through your TPT business.
Before I reveal mine, I have to let you know that I'm not in it to make a lot of money. (My husband has said that I'm exceeding my expectations!) I make materials that I can use during my therapy sessions; if someone else can get some use out of it, then that's great! A couple of products in my store are a direct result of a purchase that I made, then realizing I need something to supplement that purchase.
That being said, here are my dreams:

~ Retire in 10 years: I'm getting ready to start my 32nd year as an SLP and my 30th in the school setting. If I had stayed in the same state, I would have just retired, or be getting ready to retire very soon. I've said that as long as the kids make me laugh, I'll keep chugging along. Well, I'm still laughing!

~ The whole "Keys & Copenhagen" thing is such a HUGE dream! I never thought I would want to live in Florida, but after spending the past 3 New Year's in The Keys, I'm rethinking that! As far as Copenhagen: My MIL is from there, and I've had the good fortune to visit my husband's uncle twice within the past 10 years.  With The Keys in the winter & Copenhagen (my happy place!) in the summer, I'll never be too hot or too cold.

~ We have a very small camper that is just perfect for us. There are so many things to see in the U.S.A.; I'd like to just hit the road and see everything!


Emily said to dream big!!!

Makeover Madness: Week 1

Since I took the first week of my summer break (which was 3 weeks ago!) to revamp some things in my TpT Store, I thought it made sense to participate in the TPT Seller Challenge! I decided to use the changing of the cover for my Joke Dominoes product:
I wanted to keep the dominoes for the "O", but add a little bit of color to it. I also added a free frame from The 3am Teacher.
Even though I'm new to TPT, I've already learned an awful lot! I'm always open to suggestions!
