I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done! Since you are new, here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.
Create a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do use the map? Is this a center activity? Etc.) List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.
Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also number your pages. Finally, unless you want your Word products revised (I do for my tests) save everything in a PDF format as it is harder to change.
I know you teach special ed, so Iâ€™d appreciate your input on any of my freebies listed below. Do you think you could use some of the activities with your students?
I have some similar freebies for the primary grades as well.
