Makeover Madness Week 1 - 5S Line Posters

Wow!  It has taken me ALL week to finish my product makeover!  I thought it was done, but then I changed something again just this morning!  

I decided to change my first ever product on TeachersPayTeachers (which means it's a FREEBIE!!!)  My first product was a classroom management tool called Are You in a 5-S line?  When I started teaching, I knew I needed some quick way to have students line up without having to repeat myself 6 times a day.  I searched on the internet and found these cute sayings, but I didn't really like the posters I had seen, so I made my own.  

Since I was new to creating, I found all free clip art, digital papers, and frames.  There is NOTHING wrong with using free stuff!  It's great!  But, now I have amassed a great deal of paid clip art, papers, and frames, so I decided to change it up a bit.  

I was also new to using programs and was unsure of how to create shadows, use fonts, and even save things.  I started using PowerPoint to create all of my products, but I have a Mac, and some people in my Music group  talked so much this past year about how easy it was to use Keynote, that I decided to give it a try on some other products.  It is so much EASIER to use!  I will never go back to PowerPoint again!

And of course, I've learned about what styles my repeat buyers like, so I ended up creating more than just one style of posters.  That can honestly be a downfall at times, but I think you will see that more options are better!  Because of all the options I made, I ended up making a FREE and a CHEAP version of these posters.  I didn't feel that I could give away all that I had made since in total there are 9 options now!

I can see a HUGE difference between these, and I hope you can, too!

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to the next Makeover Madness challenges ahead this summer!

  2. The new font is so much clearer. I was wondering what a S-S line was? Great makeover. I look forward to seeing what you do next week in the challenge.
