Free Teaching Resources

I have often heard the phrase, "We are blessed to be a blessing."  I quite agree with that sentiment.

What good would it do if I kept all my blessings bottled up and locked down?  It would benefit no one.  Not even me.

I have been blessed. And I want to bless others.  Over my ten years in the classroom, I amassed quite a collection of resources.  But, what good do they do all boxed up in my closet?  I am blessed to be a blessing to others.  Therefore, I went through my boxes and boxes and boxes and have decided to give away my resources.  To you.

Below, you will find resources for Literacy, Math, Geography, and Classroom Organization.  "Shop" for items that will be useful in your classroom.  In order to allow everyone a chance to "shop", please only select 5 items for this round.  After everyone has "shopped" in this round, I will delete the items that are no longer available and then open the "shopping" again.  (I am using the term "shop", but honestly everything is free)  My resources are open to all teachers/homeschoolers, but do realize that some items might be hard to ship if you live far away.

I am asking for no payment, only the knowledge that these resources will go to good use in the hands of students.  Who knows?  Maybe you'll bless another teacher with your resources one day.

Alright, let's get this party started.  Literacy first, as that is my passion.  (***I have no idea why my pics won't align the right way.  Sorry)
