Oh my goodness...I did it!!

I opened up my very own TPT store and added my very first packet!
I am so ecstatic I can barely contain myself! :)

For over two years and 71 purchased products later, I have been a BIG supporter of TPT and the whole idea behind giving back to teachers who have taken time out of their busy lives to create instructional materials that are appealing to the eye...for both me and my sweet kiddos!  Since I have put so much into "snagging" others goodies, I thought I should put myself to work and make a few of my own.

My first packet is all on number lines.  Math has been a huge subject for me this year, in that I have put lots of time and effort into becoming a better math teacher.  With that, I got into using Math Workstations.  I found that number lines were such an easy way to differentiate and review basic math concepts. PLUS they can be used ALL YEAR LONG.  Suh-weet! I have been using these plain old boring number lines that had no "flair" to them what-so-ever.
Then, I had the pleasure of listening to my sweet, dear "idol" Kim Adsit and had the AHA moment to soup my plain boring number lines up!

Here's a preview of my 51 page packet.  It contains 12 different themed number lines and comes equipped with directions and ways to differentiate.

Since I am OVER THE MOON excited about my accomplishment, I don't want to bask in the glee of this packet alone...I wanna share the joy with you.
SO...I will be giving away this awesome little packet to the first three people to respond!!! Make sure to leave me your email addy!  
And let me know what you think?!:)
