Check out the $2 Tuesday Sale

I spend way too much when the music teachers have these sales. I am fortunate that I can join them for this one.

I just made a really fun and sweet Valentine Zombie music note pack.

It has music lines and notes posters and a worksheet.

This is one poster of the Music Notes and Spaces file.

It has motivating cards to give each student after they master their notes in the flashcard challenge or the Zombie Note attack Game.

It has Zombie note flash cards for a fun challenge.

It has Zombie recorder flash cards for a fun recorder challenge.

It also has a fun G-rated Zombie Note Attack game of both chance and skill that is fun for kids of all levels that includes the flash cards, plus cute Zombie Cards, and Action Cards. I sent a group of my top kids out with my written instructions and they figured it out on their own.

My kids gave it a thumbs up after playing it! Enjoy!

Follower and Feedback Frenzy

Happy New Year!!

I don't know about you, but the holidays went way too fast! It was crazy around here. I had my son, his wife and 4 kids staying at our house almost the whole break. It was fun, but I am ready to get back into a routine!

I am teaming up with some other fabulous music teacher friends to give away a $10 credit to our stores!  
Keep Reading!  You will be rewarded with a wonderful Giveaway at the end!

Following {Why and How}

Why Follow Me on my BlogTPT, or facebook. :
  1. Follower Freebies - I will be straight up honest here: freebies are why I start following most of the sellers I follow.  Who doesn't like free stuff?  I do different freebies on Facebook and TpT so follow me both places!  Often, I post a product announcement on Facebook before TPT sends out the new product email.  (Remember, most products are 50% off for 48 hours!).  
  2. Follower flash freebies- I sometimes do a flash freebie on old and new products for a short time. You will only see those on facebook. The best way to go to my page. Once you have clicked the "like" button, there is an arrow beside it that has notifications. If you click on "get notifications" you will get immediate notice of freebies and new products or revision notifications of products you have already purchased. 

Feedback {Why and How}

As you will see below, I am giving you some major entries to my giveaway for going back and leaving feedback on some of my products you are enjoying.  I know I get behind leaving feedback for my purchases, and I used some of my free time during the break to catch up!

Why Leave Feedback?
  1. Money, Money, Money! - You get TpT credits and these really rack up!  I actually got my latest purchase on TpT for FREE because I took the time to catch up on my feedback. 
  2. Help Sellers - When you leave feedback, it helps us improve our products or know what products buyers are really interested in.  Really love that worksheet or game you bought? Let us know! Maybe we have a few more up our sleeves and just need that extra incentive to get it posted!
  3. Help Buyers - I know I have been on the fence a few times about a purchase and really take the time to read the reviews.  When I see several 4 star ratings and detailed comments, I am ready to buy that product for my own classroom.
  4. DID I MENTION FREE MONEY!?1? -  See #1 - not gonna lie, biggest motivator for me! (Thank you TpT for credits!).  
5 years ago, I started teaching full time at an elementary school. A mentor teacher had this black belt idea that I have tweaked and added tons more to. The FREE black belt system is part of my best selling and very motivational Recorder Mega Pack. In the black belt system, I have info on how I organize everything and run the program.
