For several months now, I have been checking out the great instructional resources which can be found on Teachers Pay Teachers (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com). The site is a pretty ingenious idea. Members can go there to search for and download/purchase all sorts of teacher made classroom materials. I have found some excellent resources there, many of which are free or low cost. The beauty of this idea is two-fold. First it gives teachers a channel to collaborate and share materials. Secondly it offers a way for teachers who create their own instructional materials to make some money on the side from their hard work. Very cool, in the age when teachers in my state are the 48th lowest paid in the country!
So I have opened my own store on Teachers Pay Teachers. I have posted several lesson materials, some free and some for a small fee. My goal is to share the best of my work in hopes that other educators (and students) can benefit from it.
