I tend to spend more time working on new products just because I can never keep up with my little readers and what they need, but I also try to spend at least a little time updating old products as well. I generally do not change the content of my products when making edits, because I wouldn't have it up on TPT if I didn't think it was superb content wise! But, I do like to update backgrounds, fonts and graphics to make them the most kid-friendly as possible.
Sometimes I need a little extra motivation to actually work on editing products as opposed to working on new ones, which is why I love the #tptsellerchallenge that is going on right now. Third in Hollywood, Teach Create Motivate, Sparkling in Second & Peppy Zesty Teacherista have a great TPT summer challenge going on to motivate all us sellers! This week the theme was Makeover Madness- choosing a product and making it over.
I chose to makeover my Non Fiction Pack. This is a big seller of mine and I use it constantly with my kindergartners and 1st graders. It addresses all the CCSS for Informational Text with posters, graphic organizers and little journals. Though I did not change any content, this pack needed a new look- so I added new graphics, backgrounds and fonts to make it match the style of my other packs!
It went from this:

Have a great day!
