Greetings My Dear Share the Wealth Friends!
I know that I am jumping the gun just a little bit by going with the holiday theme here, but I can't help it. Christmas/Winter Holidays are my favorite time of the year. The warm fires, the tasty hot cocoa, warm fuzzy blankets, and of course, the opportunity to give to those we care so dearly about.
I do hope that you had an amazing Thanksgiving holiday and that you are looking forward to the amazing Cyber Monday + Tuesday sale over at TpT (Just remember the magic code of: CMT12 at checkout to get an additonal discount on what will sure to be amazingly low prices). I am absolutely giddy about the sale. I have a ton of items on my wishlish that I have been saving for the next sale! WAHOO!
On that note, I wanted to introduce you to a rising star on Teachers Pay Teachers. This amazing teacher-author has been highlighed in the TpT newsletter multiple times and has created some of the most engaging and inspiring resources to be found. Without further ado, I would love to have you meet Mrs. S, the owner and creative mind behind The Peanut Gallery.
I am in my 24th year of teaching middle school students and still love it! I enjoy creating products for both my classroom and TpT which add creativity and fun to teaching and learning."
As you can see, this is an experienced teacher that knows what's going on! After all, 24 years teaching MIDDLE SCHOOL and she STILL loves it. That alone shows how amazing she is.
But, of course, it doesn't stop there. The Peanut Gallery currently has over 125 products for you to browse. I can guarantee that if you visit her shop, you will find yourself still viewing resources 30 minutes from now! There is so much to see from common core resources to classroom theme kits to in-depth grammar lessons. Need MORE reasons to visit her? You can get quite a few FREE items (Click HERE to check them out).
I think it is important to point out that this teacher-author is also consistently donating her items to good causes, like teachers who lost everything in Hurricane Sandy, others who have experienced devastating illness, and more. I think that is a large part of why she is so amazing and successful. From what I know about Mrs. S, it isn't so much about making money as it is sharing amazing ideas and resources with those around her.
On that note, I want to share 10 amazing resources with you that I think you will find yourself adding to your Cyber Monday wishlist! (I know I have a couple tucked in there...ha ha). Yes, many of these come with a price tag, but remember that good classroom tested resources can be hard to come by. And, with almost 700 teachers following her store, you KNOW that she is GOOD!
Here are the 10 resources I thought you would enjoy:
Now, I truly hoped you paused in reading this post and clicked on a few of those links. No, really- it will be worth it. After all, with almost 900 teachers leaving feedback and an average rating of 4.0/4.0, you can't really go wrong!
I mean, here are a few comments made by those who have purchased her items:
I love all your items! When I am planning a new unit, I specifically come and look to see what you have! They are inventive, accurate, fun and they look great. I enjoy using them in my class! Keep 'em coming!
I love Christmas lights and decorate my classroom with them every year so this fits right in. I am going to use Christmas ribbon as suggested by you and instead of putting it on paper, they are going to attach the bulbs right to the ribbon and I will string them up around my room under the lights. It should be cool. Thanks! A fun parts of speech activity with a holiday twist.........
PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love them so much I am replacing my current behaviour management one with these!!!! Thank you! I love all of your work and will be a regular customer.
Once Upon A Teacher
My kids did this today and LOVED it!! I had them decorate the back of their page like a postcard and then bound them in a book for our library.
With feedback like that (and remember she has almost 1000 of 'em) it is easy to see why her items and shop are worth your time.
Before we end this amazing spotlight, I just wanted to share a freebie that I can hardly believe is FREE! No, really, this free resource is over 20 pages long. Now, if your students are like mine, then using literary devices can be a challenge. That is why I simply LOVE this freebie called: Out of This World Similes .
Let me share a few of the pages with you so you can see the quality of the work:
I chose to use the "answer key" pages to share with you so you can see the fun end products and projects that your students will get to experience! LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS UNIT!
With 81 teachers leaving feedback, and over 22,700 (Yes, you read that write twenty-two THOUSAND) downloads, you KNOW that this is a MUST HAVE resource and it's FREE! WAHOO!
Hopefully this small sampling from the unit was enough to whet your appetite. Click HERE to go and get it for FREE right now! (Don't worry, it will open in a new tab so you won't lose your place here.)
Well, I think I have shared enough about Mrs. S and The Peanut Gallery to get you on your way over there. You can also find The Peanut Gallery on her BLOG and on PINTEREST. Click on over now, she is waiting for your visit.
Have a fantastic Saturday and thanks for stopping by and "Sharing the Wealth" with me. Remember to click on a social media button at the bottom of the post to help others learn about this amazing teacher-author.
