We’re here with a few tips to help make shopping on Teachers Pay Teachers a little easier for you!
One way to make sure you never miss out on a great new product or even free item is to follow your favorite stores. To follow a store simply click on the red star next to “follow me” – if you are following the store, it will say “following” instead.
When you follow store on TpT, two things will happen. First, you will receive emails when your favorite sellers add new items to their store – both free and paid. Second, when you are signed into your TpT account and are on the homepage, you will see an area with “Seller Updates”. Instead of seeing random store updates there, you will now see your favorite sellers!
Have you ever stumbled upon a product that you think will work for your class perfectly but you aren’t sure it has everything you need? There is a great feature on TpT that allows you to ask a seller a question before you make a purchase.
If you’ve already purchased the item and have questions, you can still contact the teacher-author this way. Chances are they have also provided an email address to contact them at in their product as well.
Time management is a huge part of teaching. Check out these tips for saving time during the day with your students.
How often does this happen to you? You wrap up a great engaging lesson only to the look at the clock and realize your extension activity takes 15 minutes minimum and you only have 7 minutes. Find some quick and easy time fillers to use during transitions. Find a fun video about blends or create some flash cards on a topic you are studying. Give students something to do in those extra few minutes you find in your day. Rushing students out the door to get somewhere on time creates chaos. Quitting an activity to early so you don’t have to rush creates chaos. Find the balance between the two during your transitions.
