FREEBIE Useful Report Card Word Bank

For those of us that still include teacher provided feedback on report cards, this is a great tool to take your writing to the next level. Presenting yourself professionally matters and with this extensive list you will find ample adjectives that can be used to describe any student that may cross your path. This can also be used for students as they develop their writing and speaking skills to use higher level vocabulary and switch up the same old words that they repeat often. Happy writing!

TES Authors' Resource Bundle by a Top Selling Author - Guide - Hints and Tips, Excel Sales and Accounts Tracker, Author Calendar and Planner

This bundle contains three valuable resources for authors. Whether you are a potential author, an author just starting out or already an author; I am sure that these resources can help you in some way and will prove a worthwhile investment. 'How to Become a Successful TES Author - Step by Step Guide' I began to produce resources for TES in August 2015. When I look back at my early resources I cringe! I made so many mistakes…. Since then I have come a long way and learned so much. I have consistently been in the top ten selling authors and currently have 45 TES recommended resources. One of my resources made over 900 sales in the space of a few weeks and earned nearly £2000 in royalties. In 2017 I was shortlisted as one of eight nominees for the TES 2017, Bev Evans, Author of the Year Award. In this 26-page, step by step guide I share my mistakes and my successes to help you avoid making the same mistakes and to become a successful author sooner than you would have done without this guide. I do not claim to have all the answers and ‘my way’ might not be other people’s way. Author Resource - Excel Sales and Accounts Workbook This resource will help you to keep an account of the numbers of your sales and earnings each day. It will provide valuable data which will help to inform you how to most effectively manage your business. This excel work-book will • Keep accounts of daily / weekly / monthly and yearly sales figures and numbers of products sold • Record sales figures in graph format • Provide real-time averages of products sold and sales figures for each day of the week • Provide real-time averages of products sold and sales figures for each week of the year • Provide real-time averages of products sold and sales figures for each month of the year • Provide real-time averages of products sold and sales figures for each year It will enable you to analyse  Which days are the best for sales  How TES sales or individual sales impact on numbers of products sold  Observe trends in sales throughout the year The workbook has been set for a 5 year period from September 2016 until December 2021. Author Calendar and Planner Nine out of ten of my top selling resources are seasonal resources and ‘special day’ resources. My everyday resources are my 'bread and butter' resources; my seasonal resources are truly the icing on my cake! Keep ahead and plan your seasonal resources with this calendar and planner which contains all the major special days and awareness days for the whole year. No more missing special days or not allocating yourself enough time to produce resources. Days that change in date each year are highlighted red; days that are fixed are black. It is available in PDF and word format to allow editing. Purchased individually these resources would cost £9.50. Grab yourself a bargain and buy the bundle for just £5.99. That's a massive saving of 37%!
