TpT and I have been great friends for a very long time. Back when I began this blog and was creating materials and hosting them through Google, etc. I thought that there had to be a better way to host the materials. When I ran across an article about the now-famous Deanna Jump and looked into this “Teachers pay Teachers thing”. It wasn’t long before some of my now-favorite SLP bloggers were populating their shops with amazing materials that have forever transformed my therapy and career!
However… I did hesitate to make my first purchases on TpT! When I finally did make the move from Freebie Downloader to Paid Materials Purchaser I found some of the best materials! My first purchase was from the amazing Nicole Allison at Allison’s Speech Peeps. Her “K-5 Common Core Standards Supporting IEP Goals for English Language Arts” has become a go-to for me in developing CCSS-aligned goals and has, to no surprise to me, become the #1 Best-Selling SLP material on TpT!
(I also LOVE her “Curriculum Based Language Assessments for Grades K-5 Aligned with Standards“!)
I also purchased an amazing social skills material from Jenna at Speech Room News. “Yellow Brick Road Social Skills” has been used with all of my elementary students with pragmatic language skills goals and has been a huge hit. It’s very motivating and thorough!
My new No-Print materials have saved me a TON of time this year. My favorite is my “No Print I ‘Mustache’ You a Question: Answering and Formulating Questions” material! These No-Print materials are perfect for use with Smart Boards, iPads, and computers with PDF readers and they act like apps! Plus… they are MUCH cheaper than apps with the same amount of material included!
Are you ready?!?
Check out the other great bloggers linking up over at The Dabbling Speechie for this great linky party! Enjoy!
