Thinking of Becoming a TpT Seller this Summer?

Today is a change of pace from what I usually post, it's for all my teacher friends that have a TpT store or want to start their own TpT store this summer. TpT has been life changing for me and my family and I love to tell everyone that and encourage them to join TpT.

However, when they ask me what is the one thing I would do differently about my business, I tell them I wish I had joined TpT Focused Success with Shelly Rees YEARS earlier! I was always trying to figure out where to market my store, FB, IG, Twitter, my blog? Jumping from one thing to the next. After taking her class and becoming FOCUSED on my business with her tips, 2020 was an incredible year for me and 2021 is turning out to be even better. During this time I know many teachers have become stressed out and are looking for other careers, other jobs, instead of classroom teaching.

Working full time as a TpT seller is possible and AMAZING. Is it hard work? Yes! Is it worth it? YES! You can now have an impact worldwide and still feel like you are making a difference, but in MANY classrooms and not just one.

In addition to taking the class, you will become part of our Facebook group that is amazing and I just can't thank her enough for such a dramatic increase in revenue for our family.

This is a last chance alert! I just wanted to let you know that tomorrow, the 21st, is the final day to sign up for the TpT Focused Success Course. If you would like more information about starting your store or improving your store, here is my affiliate link and I will be happy to answer any and all questions, just email me. https://the-focused-teacherpreneur.thinkific.com/?ref=14d99f

Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
