Teachers Pay Teachers
I learned something new about a favorite site of mine. I found teacherspayteacher.com a year or so ago. It has a ton of resources--some free, some for a small fee. I've sent probably $20 of my own money to buy pre-made QR activities, foldables, or games. I love the site. Recently another teacher in my department was talking about selling her things on teachers pay teachers. What I learned was that one of the requirements to be a "seller" is that your first product sold on the site must be "free". That is why there is so much free stuff! I love it. This website has come through for me in a pinch more than once. Literally this week I needed a review activity for Thursday. Nothing exciting was coming to mind. I wanted to get away from boring. I can always think of boring. So Wednesday I got on the website, searched for our topic, filtered the results to show only "free" downloads, and within a minute or two, I found an idea for a great review activity. I downloaded the file, printed the copies, and was ready for the next day. I don't always procrastinate, but when I do, I rely on the internet to save me!
