TPT Seller Challenge Week 1: Makeover Madness

Hey guys!

It's been so long since my last post! I've been so extremely busy with moving, renovating my new home, and ending the school year that blogging kind of got put on the back burner. 

To motivate me to get back into creating and blogging again, I joined Thriving in HollywoodSparkling in Second GradeTeach, Create, Motivate, and Peppy Zesty Teacherista in an awesome month long TpT challenge to motivate sellers like myself! I am so thankful to these four wonderful ladies for all of their hard work in putting this together! It's exactly what I needed! 

So let's get down to the details of week one's challenge.


My makeover product is my "I'm Done…Now What? Editable Early Finisher Cards. These were such a lifesaver for me. As a new teacher, I was still trying to figure everything out and I just figured having a visual display of what my students can do if they finished something early would be super helpful for them and for me. 

Here is a before and after picture of my makeover product! 

As you can see in the before picture, I didn't even have a cover! Eek! So bland and SO boring! I'm in LOVE with my new cover! Not only did I change the cover, but I also added additional early finisher options and made the product editable after multiple requests. 

I personally put magnets on the back of the cards and I only put the ones that students are allowed to choose from on the board. I figured the board is the perfect place for them because all of my students face the front board. I can't wait to introduce this to my new students in the fall!  Last year, my students' favorite early finisher activity was playing Boggle! You can find these adorable editable early finisher cards here. I also have two fun options for an interactive Boggle board. Click here and here to see the two options!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to join in on the challenge and link up if your decide to participate!! I look forward to sharing with you week 2's challenge next week!

  2. Your new product cover looks great. I like to print onto magnetic sheets - it can be a bit pricey but I am bit addicted : )

    1. I actually buy plain magnetic business cards off of Amazon and just cut those! They are so much cheaper than buying a roll of magnetic tape. I've never printed onto magnetic sheets before. I'm super intrigued! I'm going to look into that! Thank you!
