My Newest Creation - Counting Dots on the Bus

You know when people say that the latest thing that they do is their favorite. Well, this LATEST creation is my favorite. Mel Lloyd at Graphics From the Pond made these school bus ten frames clipart and the light bulb went off as soon as I saw them. They are so stinking cute!!!! Drum roll Please!!! So, without further ado; here is--Counting Dots on the Bus!!!
This printable has 3 books; a student book (2 print options), a class book, and a teacher book. It includes a matching card game and the cards can be used in a pocket chart. I think it turned out great. Here is a preview of what is in the file.
I have not made anything using ten frames so this is a first. However, I have made this type of printable before. Here is Rudolph, Rudolph With Your Nose so Red, What's the Shape of Your Head? At the time, that was my favorite. It uses Mel's graphics as well. Do you see a pattern here with the clipart???? I just love Mel's creations!!
 I love the color of the cover. The red just makes it POP!!!  Here is a preview of what is in this file.
About this file, I received feedback from a lovely person, sparkywife, that said her kindergarten students loved this printable.They used as a center activity during the month of December. Come January, they wanted to see what other shape his head was. Just adorable!!! I was please as punch!! Best feedback ever!!! Sorry for the blurriness.

Summer Greetings!!

Well, it is July already. Can you believe it??? Pretty soon school will start back. A little bit of an update on the home front. I have started back to school to get my Master's in Reading and Literacy. Yes, I did not want to start the homework thing again but there were so many benefits to starting it now that I just couldn't pass it up. I will be done in about 18 months so that is not too bad. Not like six years. It just checked so many boxes off the list.

Now shop news, I have been speaking with fellow sellers about the shop. One suggested that I might should consider dropping the price because for one printable, buyers might not think it was a good deal. So, I plan to put some into packs (not bundles) and have an extra item in the packs that you cannot get if you individually purchase them. I have not had any luck with the bundles in the past. Not sure if it is the name or what. I will also be changing the front cover to those. They also suggested that. I do not get enough from the free account to drop the price any. Maybe some that are $2.75 drop down to $2.50. The next thing is to change the description, clipart thank you, and TOU page. I plan to split those up. I always thought it was better to have on one page so it would be convenient for the buyer when printing I think I need to reevaluate that because my description again is lacking as well as suggestions of other ways to play. I do not think people know that I chug a lot of ways to use the printable than what is obvious. I do not think people realize that. There again marketing.

They also suggested that I need an niche'. Something that would make me stand out because what I do so many are doing also. Any ideas????
 Well, that is all for now. I will post some Dollar Tree finds and what I am planning on doing with them later.

Toodles,
