Contractions, My first thing to sell! + a giveaway

Middle of the summer. . . . what have I done?

hmmmm? well I certainly have had a lot of fun. . . .

Eating, walking about 4 miles a day with my sister, gardening, watering, eating, watering, and spending time with family. . . and oh, a little more eating!

And of course I spent a lot of time holding that new baby in our family!

My daughter is on her way back to Houston today, so I need to push myself to get things done that I know I'll be mad if they DON'T get done by the time September rolls around.

So today I completed my FIRST thing to SELL on Teacher's Pay Teachers. I haven't a clue as to how well this will do, and I don't know how much money will come in from this. So many of you have been singing the praises of TPT, so I'm ready to take that gamble!

I made a Contraction Spelling activity. Click on the title to go to it. I hope you all remember how you struggled to price your first thing you sold. That's where I'm at. I priced it at $2.50 for 7 pages.  Changed my mind! I'm selling it for $1.75. . . see, I'm wishy washy and that seemed too high! I hope that price is better!



This activity teaches kids to look at 4 different spellings of a contraction and to decide which one is the correct spelling. I hope you love it like it!

I've watched so many of you give away teasers so I think I'd like to start with one too. I will give away this activity for FREE, (yup that means no money exchanged between the two of us!) to the first 3 people who can guess my favorite number. You'll just have to believe me when I tell you what it is, since there isn't any way to prove it to you. . . . sort of. .. . But anyway, leave me a comment with your guess and your email address. Here's a clue:  It's between 1 and 15. So guess away and come back and check tomorrow afternoon and I'll award the winners.

  10. Let's see now, 13 has always been lucky for my family. Not normally considered to be so, but we're not normal. I am planning on using your activity as part of my Daily Five Word Work. It looks great!
    Thanks

  11. Hooray on selling! :) I think that is a fair price!

    I'm free whenever to get together! I've been working away in my room, but I could spare an afternoon for you! :) Just kidding! I'd love to do it soon!
