SomeBUNNY Loves Your Blog!

I found this great linky party on Pinterest that is sharing blogs they love, so I am linking up with Christina from Bunting, Books and Bainbridge and sharing one of my favorite blogs.

I'd like to let Ashley from That's So Second know that SomeBUNNY loves her blog! She is a first year 2nd grade teacher who inspires me since I have not had a classroom yet. For someone who is just starting off teaching she does a lot of creative things with her students. She incorporates what she does in her classroom on her blog with pictures of her students doing the activities. She also has another blog for her parents to see what their children are doing in the classroom which I fell in love with!! I would so want to do this when I get my own class. It gets the parents involved and I am sure they love it. Also I love how organized Ashley is with her work. She has great Common Core organization on her blog so definitely check it out.
Please check out this first year teacher's blog and let her know someBUNNY loves her blog!

Almost 200!!!!

Almost less than a month ago I posted how I sold 100 units and was so excited in 2 months and I've sold another 100 in less than a month!!!! I'm so excited!!!!

Spring Break is Here!

I feel like I havent been in my office in 3 weeks! I have been so unmotivated working on products. I have also been slightly distracted since my best friend is getting married in June and I have the Jack and Jill, the Bridal Shower and Bachelorette party in the near future to plan for. I am so glad it is Spring Break. Unfortunately I am not going anywhere for vacation, I am having a stay-cation. I need it because I have 4 big products I want to get up this week. I have a feeling I will get most of them up since I am seriously broke so I cant leave the house really all week. I am getting more excited about getting back to work on my products and I have been steadily making around $100 a week on TPT which is amazing. I cant believe how well I am doing. I am so proud of myself. Cant wait to get paid. :)
I officially found out yesterday that I will not have a job next year. :( I now have to really get myself out there and try to find a job for next year. I wish I had money saved because I would love to go down south to the Carolinas but as I said before I'm broke. haha I also have to figure out what I am doing over the summer also which is somewhat approaching fast when you need to find a job.
Well I will keep everyone posted on my new products as I work this week and you never know I might post some freebies!!!
Thank You
A Passion Driven Teacher

Fun Blog Hop and a small question if I may ask...

Hi everyone!
I have been slaking the past 2 weeks. As you see I reached my 100th unit 2 weeks ago and I am excited to say that since then I already sold another 50. I have been really growing and the networking is helping a lot. I just started reading and posting on the TPT forums that my teacher said was a must and she was right. I have gained followers and a lot of great information from other sellers.
 I did create 2 new small products this past week because my teacher had me plan and teach reading all this past week, except today since we have a snow day!! :-)  I created a mini book of compound words and I also created a flip up book for verb tense. I think I am going to create a compound pack with some activities, and I was thinking of making the verb tense activity free. I am going to post some pictures of my students' work since they came out really cute. 
This morning I was on Pinterest and came across this great blog hop. It was ran by the same ladies who ran the Valentine's Day blog hop that I really enjoyed. This is a St. Patrick's day blog hop and it has a small game attached to it which I find really creative. Each freebie has a clue word and at the end of the 15 blog entries you can enter to win $100 for TPT by submitting the scrambled phrase. I really hope I got it right. Here is a link to the blog hop! Also there are some really great freebies for St. Patrick's Day!

Now I am going to try to get serious about writing at least twice a week and share any new products or ideas I find on Pinterest, etc. I do have a question for everyone. My Wanted Numbers product has really been selling and I was wondering if I should increase the price a small amount since it is popular and is a quality product? I am a little scared to increase the price since I don't want to discourage people from buying it. Please let me know what you think. Here is a link to the product. I am in the middle of creating a Literacy version as well, so this would help me know how to price that one as well when it is done.

Thank you so much for your feedback.
