              Pre-K, Kindergarten, First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Homeschooler -                  
Well, folks! This is yet another one of those great sale weekends.Teachers pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook are hosting super sales this weekend and of course they are asking us sellers to join them. So, I am having a 20% sale at both my stores. Both stores carry the same resources, except for my clipart which is exclusively found at TPT.  But, before I get you there let me show you a mosaic of my most popular products in both shops.

Ok! Now that you are informed let me direct you to both my stores. To shop at my TPT store and to take advantage of my great discount offer just fill your cart to the brim (lol). Hold it there till Sunday. Then on the sale day use the promo code "SUPER" at checkout for an additional 10% off, which for you spells a total of 28% off at my TPT store. Remember,  THIS SALE AT TPT IS ON SUNDAY ONLY!

But, if you are a TN shopper, then my store is all topped up there too! There are no special instructions to get to those savings, just shop! shop! and shop! Also, THIS TN SALE IS FROM SATURDAY TO SUNDAY!

The Makings of a Good Teacher

So much could be said about what makes a good teacher that it is almost difficult to find endearing qualities in one person. Some believe that a good personality is the most important factor and others believe that qualifications are major. Well, I really don't think that there should be a definite line of separation for both of them in teaching. For this reason I think that teaching should only attract THE BEST candidates as teachers.

Our children need confident, understanding, patient, passionate, creative and qualified persons who they can depend on for holistic learning. The best teachers are the ones who teach the whole child. The best teachers are the ones who encompass daily doses of compassion, concern, love and understanding along with curricula. I cannot see how it is possible to teach the mind without getting into the hearts of kids. While we are teaching, our children are reaching out to us in so many ways. Let's try to hold on to them when they do! :)

Then & Now Linky Party

I'm joining Mrs Mc's Then & Now Linky Party over at Buzz Three Times in a feat of pure nostalgia!  It's all about going down memory lane to one of your earliest products, then  highlight the transformations that you've taken. Well, I must say that I am indeed happy for this opportunity for self-evaluation. I sure do have one for you!

This is my trip in graphic form:-

In looking back at my earlier products I am not too happy with lots of things. I really did not make an effort in terms of adding details and manipulating color as much as I do now. In the past I would simply 'place' words on ready-made backgrounds without any creative input.  As you can see, there is a stark difference through time. I think I need to take some graphic design classes to probably boost my efforts even more. What do you think?

If you are a TPT seller and you wish to go down memory lane then hop on over to Mrs Mc and join her Then & Now Linky! (trust me, it is good practice to self evaluate)

International Bloggers Connect!

It's a new year and it's time for a new kinda linky party! Why not meet bloggers from all around the world? Well, this is the brainchild of Michelle Lundy over at Making It As A Middle Teacher. She has invited bloggers like myself to connect with her for this unique experience.

Wonder where I'm from? Well guess no more. I am from the beautiful Caribbean twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago. It's the home of the steel pan, the limbo, Carnival, and Miss Universe 1998 Ms Wendy Fitzwilliam, to name a few.

So come join the link party and let's continue on this inspiring journey. Click HERE or the picture below.

Well I sure am curious to find out if there are any bloggers from my country and the Caribbean region. That would be awesome!
Thanks Michelle!
