A Teacher's Best Friend

Teachers Pay Teachers may be one of the best things ever created for educators. I am a speech language pathologist in a middle school and this website has quickly become my new best friend. There are millions of resources and materials that educators have created to share with other educators for a small fee. Most sellers offer free items too... BONUS!! I love it. I have found so many creative and useful materials/activities to use with my students. The people on TpT are so talented. I get so excited now, when doing my lesson plans, because it means that I get to look for new materials!

Up until a few months ago, I had only purchased items on TpT. I started to realize that a lot of the materials and activities I used with my students, I had created myself, and that other teachers and SLPs could probably use them too. So.... I decided to create my own Teachers Pay Teachers store, Kessler's Creative Corner.

Now, because I am still fairly new to the seller side of things, I don't have a whole of materials in my store just yet. I do have a lot of ideas in mind though! I have themed activities planned for March, April, and May. I just need to find the time to create them. Isn't that the problem for all of us though??   There is never enough time. Having a toddler, consumes a lot of my time when I am at home and when I am at work, I am usually seeing students for therapy or attending meetings. I blocked off some time in my schedule each week, specifically devoted to creating new materials, because this is very important to me and it is also something I enjoy. 

If I had to suggest one item, from my store, that I think would be great to use with any middle school students on your caseload, it would have to be, 'Inferencing with Images'. I love this activity and so do my students. It is a lot fun and it really engages the students while teaching them how to infer meaning from what they see.

On February 25th, Teachers Pay Teachers is running a 'Teachers are Heroes' sale. All you have to do is enter the code: HEROES, at check out, to receive 28% off your entire order!! I am so excited for this, because I have a lot of items on my 'Wish List' from other sellers that I follow. 

Come check out my store and if you like what you see, you can follow me and receive updates whenever I post something new to my store. 

Take minute to check out some of these other great sellers on Teachers Pay Teachers that are being hosted over at The Speech Room New's, What's in your Cart? Link Party
