After playing this game in my classroom, then something amazing happened. I was having trouble getting my students attention one day, and so I said, "Let's play our directions game." Everyone stopped and looked in my direction. I said, "Ok, see if you can remember these three directions. 1. Stop what you are doing. 2. Clean your area. 3. Meet me at the rug." It was a wonderful! Student followed my directions!!

If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 Credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example.
