Three Fabulous & Free Teacher Resources

There are so many fabulous teaching resources out there.  Sometimes, it's hard to know where to best spend my limited teaching budget.  It's a good thing there are also a wide variety of free resources for educators.  Today I would like to share three of my favorites.

Three Fabulous and Free Teacher Resources

I absolutely love Angela Watson's Truth for Teachers podcast!  She tackles a wide variety of issues in education.  Some of my favorite topics include: becoming more efficient with lesson planning, dealing with unmotivated students, and maintaining a positive mindset despite all the lofty expectations put on teachers today.  

The podcast airs every Sunday night.  I always look forward to my Monday morning commute to listen and receive an extra bit of motivation for the week.  I have found an immediately actionable idea in every single one of her podcasts.  I can not say enough good things about it!  You can subscribe to the podcast in iTunes or anywhere you listen to podcasts .  (I personally love the app, Pocket Casts.)

I have spent a small fortune on books over my 23 years of teaching, and I don't regret any of it.  Nothing makes me happy quite like a student who finds that perfect book.  Despite my love for books, there are times when a audio book is more suitable for a student.  Whether it's a lower reading level, an auditory learner, or a student who just wants to mix it up a little, it's nice to have that option readily available.

Enter Storyline Online.  This is a fabulous resource where students can select a book and have it read to them.  There are tons of options, so there is something for everyone.  There is no need to sign up or create a password.  Just click on a book and enjoy!  My students love it!

I love how engaging technology is for both myself and for my students.  My biggest problem is trying to keep up with it all.  One site that I have found to be extremely helpful is the Free Technology for Teachers blog.  This site shows you step by step how to use some of the newest technology features in the classroom.  It covers everything from Google Classroom features to editing videos.  There is something for everyone from novice to experienced technologist.  I am somewhere in the middle, and a big chunk of my to do list comes from this blog.  It is awesome!

Do you have any favorite free resources?  I would love to hear some more ideas.

Thank you, and have a great week!
