Week three of the TpT Seller Challenge is well under way. This week, our goal was to create our own masterpiece. I have been working on this Community Helpers unit throughout June. And I just kept making it bigger, and bigger, and bigger, because I don’t really like editing and was procrastinating on it (anyone able to empathize with me?!). Usually, I have a small editorial team consisting of: 1)My sweet co-teacher, but she just got married, AND 2) My hysterical kinders who get a kick out of finding my mistakes (we all love being smarter than the teacher). But, at the moment, my little editorial staff was out of commission.
I’m going to be real with ya’ll…I just had the best of luck! Randomly, I decided to ask on a Facebook group if anyone was interested in editing this unit for me, and I was blown.away. Not only by the response, but by the quality of people who offered their help! To me. A stranger! These ladies are awesome! I am so grateful!
Seriously, Ladies, you.are.awesome. Thank you, thank you!

They were so kind in their encouragement to me and gave such great feedback! They caught some wording and formatting errors that I probably never would have caught. (You know how sometimes, things make sense in your head, but don’t really come across correctly to others? No, it’s just me who struggles with this? Probably.)
This is the first unit I have made and posted without first teaching it. But I will be teaching it in September and I’m so excited to already have it done and ready for back to school. (I will be working to prep it later this week and will update this post on how I use centers in my class them.) It always seems like the beginning of the year is so crazy, it will be really nice to not have to think about planning anything major for this unit. We will cap it off with a field trip to a bakery and a police officer visit to our classroom. It will be a fun beginning of the year!
