September – Ba Dee Ya!

Hello Hello!

Firstly: Giraffes are Way More Complicated Than We Thought…

Hope you’re all settling in for the new year / term wherever you are. August was flat out for me at school and at home. Been very exciting month or so at school ordering up for the rest of this year and next – plus replacing a lot of old equipment for the first time since the school opened 40 years ago – more or less rebuilding our workshop. Been very rewarding to have the support of my Head Teacher and Principal.

August. …Welcome Back!

Welcome back to school for a new year for our (mostly) US subscribers and welcome to Term 3 for Aussies etc. Been a very busy few months for me and I’ve spent LOADS of time on new products and things I will get to later.

Yes I moved the newsletter over to Mailchimp. I had no problems using AWeber for creating and sending newsletters, but it was a real pain integrating it into the WordPress website. Needed to pay for an integration thing, the pop-up kept breaking (I hate pop-ups anyway), just frustrating.

2023 April Update

Wow 12 months to the day since the last update – didn’t mean for that to happen!

Looking back at the last update and I was talking about doing some product updates and adding information for Core Standards Codes and all the rest of it. Well that ended up being over 1000 new PDF resources created, 100’s of updated images for previews etc, 100+ refreshed “About PDF”‘s for the resource downloads, and 100’s of updated TPT descriptions and same again for the Standards being added.

It was… a lot!

2022 January Update

Well what a crazy 6 months it has been! We launched the site, got our first batch up products up on TPT, edited and re-iterated on them many, many times.

And just as we thought the 23rd version of the templates, descriptions, layout etc was perfect, I discovered the software I was using had been creating errors for about 6 weeks. So instead of making new products in my time off over Xmas, I spent it working with the developer for about 3-4 weeks, then recreating the old worksheets from scratch to replace the ones with errors. All 400+ of them!

Hello World

Hello and welcome to my teacher resources website – Rough Blobby Shapes.

It’s been a lot of work getting to now – I think I started putting together this website back in October of 2020. There has been a lot of work gone into my first resources – plus life, work, and study to attend to as well.

I wanted to make sure the first resources were as complete as I could make them and to a high standard that I see in other TPT stores. I didn’t want to be coming back to them in six months or six years and needing to add Credits pages, T&C, decent Thumbnails etc. Probably meant I spent a lot longer trying to get the first one perfect, but sooner or later you need to ship.

I have a VERY long list of resources I want to create and share with other teachers around the world. For starters we are blowing out some cobwebs with some fun things like Bingo Cards, Crosswords, Word Puzzles etc. Simple stuff to get started with, hopefully useful.

OK – lets get on with it.
