TpT Seller Challenge : Makeover Madness

If you have any form of social media, I am sure that you have seen this fantastic TpT Seller Challenge that started yesterday. Each week there will be a different focus and this week is Makeover Madness, which is exactly what I have been doing for the past several months! This just motivates me even more to hurry up and get all of my products updated so I can start making new things.

I started my store back in 2011. I made several products and never touched TpT again until about four months ago. Like with most things I do, I jumped in head first and have been going 150% ever since making the decision to commit to this. Because I had not touched any of my products for the last four years, they were in DIRE need of a facelift (some complete reconstructive surgery).
When trying to figure out where to start with my updating, I decided to start with my best sellers and slowly work my way down the list. I am sharing one of my top ten selling items: Pumpkin Unit. I am kind of in love with the updated version.
As you can see, my original version of this product was in pretty bad shape. I did not even have a cover page (whoops!) If you go through my store, you can see all of my old products do not have cover pages, which is why updating has been my main focus the past four months. I did not have a lot of content in this version, just a few activities and a couple of math and literacy centers.
The new version has SO much stuff and actually looks good. Ha! I updated the clipart and font and added a background print to tie it all together. The new product has pumpkin posters (with real life photos and clipart), one week of pumpkin lesson plans for science and math, daily hands-on, interactive activities, 5 pumpkin literacy centers, and 5 pumpkin math centers. That is a lot of pumpkin material that you and your students are bound to LOVE. You can see the product in my store by clicking {here}.
