I was searching for teaching materials for my kids when a good friend introduced me to TeachersPayTeachers.com. She told me that she gets great ideas and materials on this site for a low cost. I was curious and started exploring the website that she referred. Here’s what I learned.
What is TeachersPayTeachers.com all about?
I found out that TeachersPayTeachers.com is an online market website where educators trade their lessons plans and teaching materials to their fellow educators. The website’s vision is to empower educators to share original educational materials and make teaching an even more rewarding experience. A product from this site includes Teacher-Created Lesson Plans, Activities, Exams, PowerPoint Presentations, Worksheets and other similar curricular formats. Their wide-range of teaching materials was arranged accordingly from subjects, specializations, to the type of teaching material desired and down to grade levels. This systematically arranged style of the materials allows you no hassle in finding the right products that you want.
How can I find the right teaching product?
As mentioned earlier, this online market website arranged their variety of products according to subject, specializations, type of teaching material and grade levels which makes it easier in browsing the right teaching material for you. You can seek for a teaching material by subject on the Subject section where you can find, English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies–History, Arts & Music, Foreign Language and Specialty. You can seek into a more specialized materials by browsing through the Specialty category that sort subjects ranging from Computer Science-Technology, Special Education, Career and Technical Education, Health, Critical Thinking, Family Consumer Sciences and a whole lot more specialties. This website also offers you the teaching material you needed by exploring through the Type category section.
Adding fun to a dull Social Studies-History Lesson.
TeachersPayTeachers.com offers a whole new range of teaching materials that improves the teaching and learning experience of both the teacher and the students. A lecture and activity teaching product for a social studies for kids or History class for the Constitutional lesson is available from the said website through this link which is made creatively for parents like me. This product material consists of lecture material that teaches the background study of the lesson. Activity for students includes writing their own constitution, their own declaration of independence and their bill of rights. This writing activity enhances their creativity and thinking skills and at the same time gaining familiarity of the mechanics about constitutional writing and the like.
TeachersPayTeachers.com is not an ordinary market website; it helps educators and parents in building a creative and fun experience without jeopardizing the teaching-learning experience. Lesson plans and teaching materials don’t come in a boring practice anymore with the help of this online market website teaching and learning can be FUN and CREATIVE at the same time.
