TPT Reminiscing & GIVEAWAY

I remember the day I decided to start selling products on TPT. It was a Sunday, and I was visiting my family in Kentucky. I randomly remembered how much my firsties struggled with double-digit addition with regrouping and thought, "Why not create a bingo game to help my kiddos practice?" I started out in Word, and for those of you who sell on TPT, you know how AWFUL Word is to create in. I wrote out a bunch of double-digit addition equations on pieces of paper and put them in a hat. I drew out a card at a time and typed it on the bingo board. It took me hours, but I finally made 30 bingo cards. I remember being frustrated that Word wouldn't let me maneuver things how I wanted. I finally finished creating my first product after a good while. After this experience, I thought, "Why not create things for my classroom?" So, ever since that's what I've been doing.

I remember back when I had 12 followers on TPT. I thought it was pretty sweet that 12 people
thought I was worth following. Now that I'm at 100 followers, I feel like a rockstar. I know that's not near what the top sellers on TPT have, but you've got to start somewhere, right?? When I hit 100 followers this week, I may have jumped for joy and giggled like a school girl. So, to celebrate this victory of mine, I'd like to give back to you!

Enter below to win a $10 TPT gift card to help me celebrate this joyous occasion! The giveaway starts tomorrow and will end next Monday. Good luck, and thank you for your help and support on my journey! a Rafflecopter giveaway
