Teachers Pay Teachers

Some of you may have known about this sight forever, but I just came upon it this past Spring, and I love it!  It is http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/.  It has so many already-created worksheets and ideas (many aligned with the CCSS) to implement into your instruction.  I have used several ideas from this site, and the worksheets I have used were free, cute (I'm a 2nd grade teacher, so I like cute!!), and appropriate to check understanding.  There are some ideas that cost, but you can search "FREE", and you will find an overabundance of items!  If you have really great ideas, you can also submit your own worksheets to put on the website to share and get paid for it too!

 

The CCSS can be very overwhelming.  Like creating quizzes aligning with the Common Core for this class, TeachersPayTeachers can just be another tool to help our students become more prepared.  I can see myself utilizing the prepdog technology into my instruction which will help my students understand the depth of thinking that is required on the SBAC assessment.  Participating in this class will allow us to use the quizzes already created to give us a jumpstart for next year.  I'm looking forward to it.

 

Anyway, I just thought http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/ was an excellent resource that aided in my instruction and implementation of the Common Core! Enjoy exploring.

I love this website too!  It has so many great ideas that are aligned with the CCSS for all grades.  You can earn points for purchasing things and that adds up to extra money to use on future purchases.  Another website that is similar to this website is  www.teachersnotebook.com.  It is also a great resource for ideas.

I think that sites like these are one of the awesome things of CCSS... It allows teachers to collaborate across the nation, not just locally.   We can share ideas and resources.  I love that,  It is one of the things I find exciting about CCSS!

Both of these sites are great resources!  My team uses a lot of the created materials to integrate CCSS.  I also enjoy following teacher blogs for my grade level and the one below and above to get ideas.  There are some really good ones out there.  Pinterest is another resource that allows teachers the opportunity to collaborate and share ideas.
