If you aren't already a member of Teacherspayteachers.com, or receive the weekly newsletter, you may want to. They send out a weekly newsletter (you do not have to be a seller) which gives 10 free downloads of various topics and grade levels each week, some featured products, and some discussion of what is upcoming. Did you know April is Poetry Month? There are suggestions from other teachers of how they are using this in their classroom. Its a great way to liven up your classroom routine, and stay creative in your teaching.
I am writing about the newsletter because I was lucky enough to have one of my products be one of the featured free downloads this week (see picture below). Strangely enough, it is the product I just wrote about in my last blog post! (I swear I didn't know it was going to be featured).
I love this for the feedback as well. Here are a few of the wonderful bits of feedback I've gotten today!
"Excellent way for Reading teachers and other core subject teachers to collaborate."
"I like this! It's great for common core and higher-level academic reading."
"Great to use with my ELLs? Thank you."
"This is user friendly for high school students and a great tool to share with pre-service teachers to include literacy in their content area."
"This is a great reading activity....As an ELA teacher it's great to see science teachers promote reading skills. We're your newest followers!"
Here is a link to this week's newsletter.
I actually first got involved in TpT through looking for a free product, and then signing up for the weekly newsletter with the free downloads. There are some great products coming right to your inbox every week, and some inspiration and ideas from a creative and passionate group of teachers.
