I have let this blog sit for awhile for a couple of reasons. I was feeling discouraged because no one seemed interested in stopping by and reading. I suppose I need to continuously put up quality material and practice patience - so that is my goal for the new year. The other reason is that I was finishing up grad school. I hope to tell you in another couple weeks that my paper has been accepted and that I have passed. In the meantime, my fingers are crossed and I am secure in the knowledge that I did my best work.
I have begun a small side business over at Teachers Pay Teachers, selling some of my lesson plans and my artwork. I figure this is a good forum to share that work with others. I hope, if you are reading this, you will take a moment to stop by and maybe you will consider supporting me.
Here is a link to my Holiday Backgrounds for PowerPoint. They are a bargain for $5.00 because each image is less than ¢15. It's what you'd pay for a fancy cup of coffee . . . right?
The images are made for slides, so you will have plenty of room to write lots of text. Additionally, most of the images come in sets of two - one title slide (like the image above) with a large graphic and one regular slide with smaller graphics and more room for text.
And, as an extra, people who order and leave me a comment here to let me know what they think, will be emailed a bonus pack. Hooray! (You will have to leave me your email address for me to mail the bonus pack to you. But, worry not. I have no mailing list or anything like that.)
I had a successful Thanksgiving lesson that did well last week, and this coming week I have a seasonal lesson on las posadas in the works - and another one on el Día de los Reyes Magos. More news on those when I finish.
