I'm so glad to meet you and here of your missionary work. Our teens just got back from working in the slums of Nicaragua. Where do you attend church?

By the way, make sure each cover is a little different. I noticed that two looked very much alike which might confuse buyers.

I am in NH. My college aged son has been lots of mission trips: Haiti, Guatamala, and New Orleans post Katrina. My daughter just went to El Salvador. Kenya was my first trip and we were primarily teachers working in the schools. Maybe if I get good at this,I can fund another trip. Pictures and videos are here you are interested: http://kenyain2011.blogspot.com/

I am reworking the SPT activities. Thanks for your help.

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 to TPT, here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.

Add some clipart to add color or just color some of your font. (I do even on high school math tests.) For some reason buyers like color on the original even though they may copy your product in black and white. Also, create a cover page for each of your products (even those that have just one page) 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 this? When? How is it graded? 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 products revised (I do for my tests) save everything in a PDF format as it is harder to change.

It is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below to gather some ideas. If you care to, a rating or any feedback you might have would be great.

Was you photo taken when you served as a missionary or did you teach overseas for a short time? I wish you the very best as you sell on TPT!

Thank you for the helpful comments. I will adjust the plans. There is so much to learn about how to do these, I was just thrilled to figure out how to put my ideas into powerpoint and how to turn it into a pdf file.

I did a short mission trip to Kenya last summer and was working with the teachers and a school in the Mathare Valley slum of Nairobi. I would love to go back again as it was one of the greatest experiences ever. Despite the extreme poverty, the children love to learn and value every bit of education that they can get. I think about all I saw and experienced there every day.
