to school isn’t just a one day event for teachers. It is a process- a process that takes hours,
days, and weeks. We teachers pour over
our classrooms and attend meetings. We run copies and plan lessons. We wonder what desk arrangement is going to work. How many students will I have? What will
I do on the first day? And now with the
pressure inspiration of
“Pinterest classroom” – phew! We will never be finished, right? Teachers just
simply do not just go back to school!
why I love Teachers Pay Teachers for back to school. Here are five reasons that
TPT is great for making back to school a little simpler.
– Many TPT sellers work together to put together huge bundles of great
resources, gifts, and more that teachers can enter to win! Find out about these
give-a-ways by following blogs and individual stores and by doing a
quick Internet search.
– What’s better than an idea or resource that you love? If it’s free, right?!? TpT is has thousands of free,
quality resources for back to school ideas, classroom décor, pre-tests,
curriculum, ice breakers, and lessons.
There are no strings attached – just log in for free and download until
your heart’s content! See some fabulous freebies for secondary ELA here.
– Anybody like shopping at Costco or Sam’s? Do you prefer those large jars of
pickles at Wal-mart to the smaller ones? It’s true – bundles give you more bang
for your buck. Even if you don’t eat every last pickle in the jar, you paid
less but got more and loved every bite of each one that you did eat. The same is true for bundles of resources,materials, and activities. You get to
pick and choose what you can use, or use it all, and it’s all there in one easy
– I love that tingly feeling when I’ve gotten a good deal on a pair of shoes.

Teachers Pay Teachers sellers are very aware that
use their own money to buy school supplies and resources, and sellers know that
teachers are spending their own hard-earned money and trusting our resources. At the start of every year the site hosts a
site-wide sale, and they host several throughout the year as well. Periodically throughout the year, individual
sellers will throw their own sales. The
fact of the matter is, though, that the prices on TpT are already
rock-bottom. Where else can you get a
week unit plan for $5 or less? See what’s on sale this week!
all in one place at your fingertips. – Time is precious. Having resources that
are ready-to-go and tried and true all in one place that you can preview before
you buy is fantastic. No need to run to
the dusty supply closet, hop around on various sites, or wait for something to
come in the mail. Just relax in your jammies with some coffee and shop. It’s all right here –
back to school rounds the corner more closely each day, may the odds be ever in
