Be a successful seller in TpT {Tips for newbies}

As I always say: I´m not a gurú. Since last June I´ve reached more than 300 followers and sold more than 750 items in my TpT store. TeacherspayTeachers is a great place, and lately has been featured in several articles, thanks to our biggest inspiration: Deana Jump, who earned 1 million bucks.

But this is about what to do when you´re new to the site and you feel lost in the process. I have a few tips for you that helped me:

1. Get informed. Read the Tips from Margaret and look all the Charity Preston videos, they really will help you to understand the market and how we work there.

2. Set up your profile completely. Your description, profile picture, and name are very important. It´s all about the trust. Choose a creative name, something unique and a lovely picture of you. People want to know who are they talking with. (You may want to use a logo, but I highly reccomend a picture of you)

3. Fill your store. The first months you have to work a lot to fill your store with high quality products. Every single product has to be perfect (mainly the free ones). Quality products sells by theirselves. Always make beautifull cover pages, thumbnail images and complete descriptions.

4. Introduce yourself. Use the forum to tell people who you are, but also to help people. The key is to help others. That´s the way of our community. Be aware what is happening and be part of the conversation. Be carefull, TpT forum can be really adictive!!!



5. Gain followers. Doing all the above will help you with followers. Don´t ask for followers in the forum, they aren´t real followers and you will not make any sale from they. To gain followers you must do 2 things: 1. Make freebies, people love free things and that shows them your work, if they like it, they will follow you. 2. Take part in every giveaway and linky party you see in the forums.

6. Promote your items. The best way to promote items is Pinterest. Ask to be added in the collaborative boards. You can find them in the forum. But also you should have a Facebook page, a Twitter account and a blog. It´s a lot of work to maintain those accounts, but it pays off.

7. Be prepared for the feedback. Usualy the feedback we get is nice. But bad feedback will be here soon or later. You must be prepared to receive it and not to be disturb by it. Although you should hear what people have to say about your work. If you feel wonded, don´t answer right away. Take your time, analyze your product and always thank this person and be nice. Always!

8. Dedicate time to your store. Doing tips from 1-7 is not for a day or a week. You must dedicate time every day to work, promote, review, post, talk and help others. Otherwise this will not work.

I will be doing a post for every tip, because I don´t want to make this one too big and there are some more thing to tell you about it. I hope you find this usefull and don´t hesitate to ask me anything in the comments.

Thanks for stoping by!

Freebie and Computer center tips

In the computer center, management and routines must be practiced before you could shift the focus to learning content. Once you have your management strategies in place, the rest will be smooth sailing.

Here are some routines for you to teach first week of school:

 1. Use a word to get their attention and make them quit their hands from the keyboard/mouse. Some teachers preffer to make them put their hands in their heads. Now you have their complete attention to teach your topic. Also you can use a poster to remaind it.

 2. Find a helper. There are kids who have more practice with the computer, they can help you with other students in a computer issue. This makes management easier for you. This kid can also be aware for others to fill the "Computer Use Worksheet" and make sure they are following the rules. The Computer Police:
Grab this label for fee here

 3. When teaching a many steps lesson, students tend to forget the first steps. I use direction sheets like I read in this post.

  4. Is better to name things in the right way. I use posters and tags to label every part of the computer, so they can remember and learn it all. After a while I remove labels and students should know every computer part´s name. These labeled tags and posters are available in my Computer Center complete pack.


 5. There are other computer routines that must be taught, like the correct order to turn on and off the computer, how to save quit an USB stick, and the rules for using the computer and internet:



If you need a little help to set up your Computer Center I recommend you to purchase mi Computer Center Complete Pack where you wil find:
  • Computer passes 
  • Computer center Rules Poster 
  • Computer parts labels 
  • Computer numerated labels 
  • Computer use record sheet 
  • Keyboard shorcuts cards (with images aids) 
  • Blank labels 
  • Computer center sign 
  • Students login data form (2 different designs) 
  • Computer parts stamps 
  • Mousepad craftivity 
  • Directions and recommendations

First day of school FREEBIE

This post is part of the Caring Classroom Link Up.

In my school, all students come together in the same classroom from the previous year, so, they know each other well. So, the main challenge I have to face is  learn their names, and I have a terrible memory.
So this is a fun game that works really great for me:

I print this blank face template and give one to each kid.

Clic to download the free template
Then I ask them to draw their own face (and hair) in it. After a while they must to give me the sheets and I have to guess who´s who. We always have a good time playing this game.



When we finish they can write their names in the sheets and stick them to the Bulletin Board and every time I forgot a name I just have to look to that wall.

Don´t forget to go check my TpT store, where you will find lots of freebies and other teaching resources.
