Take the TPT Plunge!

The Dabbling Speechie is hosting this fantastic linky party about Teachers Pay Teachers!

A couple years ago I was eating lunch with some kindergarten teachers who were raving about this website called Teachers Pay Teachers. They were telling me all about the great packets they had purchased and all the freebies they found. They had me at freebie.

I registered almost immediately! I began to scour TPT for free materials! It was like a treasure hunt and I laminated all the gems that I found. This year, I finally decided to take the plunge and I purchased my first product.... and I've bought many more since! In fact, I've earned so many TPT credits from leaving feedback that I received $5.00 off my last purchase! Oh... by the way... did you know you earn free money by leaving fair feedback on items that you purchase?! Just another reason to take the plunge!

I first dove into the pool to buy Jenna Rayburn's There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose: Speech and Language Companion. You can find that here.
My students absolutely adored this book companion. Their smiling faces were worth every TPT penny!

Coincidentally, my favorite product can also be found in Speech Room News' TPT store. It's Candy Town Language cards! They can be found here.
I recently scooped this cute packet up during the last big TPT sale. I work with primary students so you know... CandyLand is the greatest game on Earth!

All the amazing authors on TPT inspired me to start creating my own materials! It has become one of  my favorite hobbies. I love creating things that support my students' goals and things that they enjoy!

Currently, my best-selling product is my Speech and Language Book Companion for If You Give a Cake a Cupcake. Check out my previous post to find out how to win a copy for yourself!

My favorite product that I have created so far is my Spring Color, Cut, and Glue Articulation Activities Packet for /s/ blends. It contains 105 pages of NO PREP activities for /s/ blends. You can find this product, here. A very similar product from a major publishing company would cost $30+!
There are so many high-quality products that can be found on TPT that will save you time and more importantly money! Take the Plunge! Still not convinced? Check out the linky party to see what other bloggers are saying about their personal TPT experiences!
