This is one of my favorite products that I have made from some of these images. 



This helps your students read the amounts of money in words. It's a tough skill that is often seen on national tests. 




If you are picked as the big winner, you'll be given a choice between getting a download of the clipart or getting an actual CD.

How to Update Purchases & Find Out if You Need to Leave Feedback

If you haven't spent all your money on shopping this weekend, maybe you have some left to shop at the TPT Cyber Sale! It's happening on November 27 and 28th. You'll get 25% off your purchase if you use the code Cyber17




If you have some down time during the break . . . 

(Yes the kind of down time where you aren't napping, or eating, or watching a great movie on TV!)


I have something you could do! I just spent about a half hour going through my TPT purchases. I updated any that had new revisions, and I also left feedback for things I somehow forgot to leave feedback for. 

First you need to go to your page on TPT. That's when you click on your own name that is in bold print. There you will see this picture. 




When you click on My Purchases, you'll then see Paid Purchases and Free Downloads. 



I checked in my paid purchases and in my free downloads too. Both of those areas have ways to check for recent revisions, and feedback that needs to be provided. 
       
You might be thinking. . . why do I need to leave feedback? 

Well the first reason is that it's a kind and considerate thing to do. Your mama certainly taught you to use your manners, and this is a great chance to show your mama that you were listening! 
                    
The second reason is because you get credits for leaving feedback on paid items. Those credits add up to $$ off your next purchase.  Now you don't get credits for leaving feedback on free things, but it really does help the seller know how you feel about the product and it is just plain good manners. . . remember what your mama taught you!!


It's not that hard to do and you know you don't want to sit on the couch for the entire break. . .do you? If you have a laptop you can do it right from the couch and wa-la! you've accomplished two things at once. 

Now doesn't that feel better?

Writing Letters to Santa and a Twist

Many of you have your students write letters to Santa. I'd like to share a post I wrote a few years ago, about what I do with my Santa Letters.  Click HERE to go to this post.
