One of my favourite teaching resource sites is Teachers Pay Teachers. (It’s the one I turn to the most, after Twinkl.) I love searching for freebies or buying cute top-up resources. I’m going to share some of my favourites in this Teachers Pay Teachers review.
TpT is an online marketplace, a bit like eBay but for educators. Download a freebie, leave a feedback comment, or buy a paid product. Know that you’re contributing to the happiness of your fellow teachers and homeschoolers!
Teachers Pay Teachers Review; Freebies Galore
If you want to download free or paid resources, you’ll need to register for a free account. To sell resources, change that account to a free seller’s account. If you sell a lot of resources, the final step would be to upgrade to a paid seller’s account. Your past purchases stay on your account, for future downloading.
There are lots of freebies on TpT. This is because Teacher-Authors must list their first resource free of charge. It helps buyers check whether the seller’s teaching style is a good fit for their students. Also, it means tight budgets are no bar to high-quality peer-authored resources!
Teachers Pay Teachers Review; Pin It, Baby!
This is what passes as a hobby, these days. I’m always thinking about lesson prep, homeschool planning, available resources, and top-up activities. I can lose myself hunting through TpT and stuffing my wishlist with great resources. Pinterest has a lot to answer for!
As well as browsing TpT and going Pin-crazy, I author a few resources too. I created a Mandarin Chinese Pinyin packet to accommodate our basic study level. My 2D Shapes packet helped us revise specific geometry concepts, at mixed levels. But, my Romulus & Remus packet is something I was working on a while ago. We studied the Romans at least 2-3 terms ago. We may not have used it at the time. But, it’s good and I want to share it! (Even hobbies need funding. Advocacy and education blogging don’t run on a zero budget.)
