For those teachers who haven’t heard of Teachers Pay Teachers (www.teacherspayteachers.com), I highly recommend you check it out! This website is basically an idea exchange for teachers who are out in the field, selling and sometimes giving away items that they have used with their own classrooms. Each week, I get an email with 10 free activities that are given away. I go to the website and download the ones I want. You can also search and purchase any additional materials. (If you download the free versions, it is polite to leave a comment on how well it worked in your classroom). The awesome thing is that the money goes to actual teachers and not huge publishing companies.
If you have some great ideas, log on, create a site and post your work. Who knows, you might get a little extra for the stuff you already have created! If not, don’t reinvent the wheel- log in and try it for yourself!
