Happy almost-summer-vacation! I have exactly two weeks until report card day, phew! If you are already finished... I am super jealous and don't want to hear about it ;) Actually, in all honesty, I had a great year and will be pretty sad to see my kiddos go. They have come SO FAR in the past 10 months and I am immensely proud of them!
You may or may not have heard, but four fabulous ladies (Sparkling in Second, Third in Hollywood, Peppy Zesty Teacherista, and Teach Create Motivate) have started a Teachers Pay Teachers Seller Challenge to help kick off summer. I am knee-deep into report cards right now, but a challenge like this is the exact kick in the pants I need, so I will be participating anyway! I need breaks, right?? ;)
For Makeover Madness, we were encouraged to choose a product and "makeover" its cover page and/or content. I have quite a few cover pages that I should probably update (*cough* Dessin dirigé *cough*), BUT I don't have the Powerpoint files of my oldest projects on my new computer yet (I can't lie - I got bored of transferring everything over pretty quickly). However, I have recently been trying to have a more uniform look for my Collection Mur de mots products ever since I bundled them. I have also been (slowly) going back through them to add a girl/boy symbol to each card by request, to encourage students to choose the appropriate article based on the gender of the word and WHAT MAKES SENSE (students copying the article and writing sentences like "j'aime ma la maman" is a big pet peeve of mine and another post for another day!). I also changed up the way I do my Droits d'auteur/credits page that is more streamlined and that I like much better. My farm product needed some definite TLC to fit these criteria!
Overall, I'm happy! I still have a couple of Collection Mur de mots products to revamp this week. Once the individual ones are all finished, I will be adding them to the bundle - it takes my slow internet a LONG time to upload the whole collection at once! As part of the challenge, all of the products I update will be on SALE for the 4 days after they are updated (the Bundle as well!). À la ferme is the only one ready right now, so click on the picture below to go check it out!
