Tips for Shopping any TPT Sale



Is it TPT Sale Time?! 

Teachers Pay Teachers hosts a few sales per year where you can save up to 25% on resources in participating stores. Be prepared, and celebrate with BIG savings! Plan right to save yourself time for the rest of the year!



My tips for shopping the sale:


1) Don't forget the code!

During a few sales in the past, I have forgotten to enter the code for the final 5% of the discount! The code is given out by TPT in emails a day or two before the sale. Write this code down, and be sure to enter this at checkout to save as much $ as possible!

One time, I forgot to enter the code but emailed support@teacherspayteachers.com and they honored my mistake by crediting my account. It was a huge relief!

2) Earn TPT Credits!

Before you start shopping, make sure you have left feedback on all recent TPT purchases! Leaving feedback translates into TPT credits that you can use as $ during the sale!

3) Check out NEW resources

Sale days are a great opportunity to try something new. Sales come at the times of year when we are tired, and our students are tired. Trying something new gives everybody a little boost of energy!

My newest resources are below.

LEERRORES: My newest reading activity line. These reading activities are designed to build confidence. They also include comprehension activities as well as extension writing activities. I currently have one for TENER and ADJECTIVE AGREEMENT.

Student Planner: This planner can be used as a whole, or you can choose certain pages to help your students track their progress throughout the year. There are so many options included in this planner that it is worth taking a look!

Teacher Planner: Meant to help YOU! We all love our teacher planners, and now you can track your favorite habits / goals in the target language :)

4) Prepare for upcoming times / end of the year

My most popular resources this time of year are my study guides. I have one for Spanish 1 and Spanish 3, to help students review the general themes of the year and prepare for their final exam.

Spanish 1 Study Guide - a 48 slide study guide for basic vocab and grammar themes

Spanish 3 Study Guide - a 27 slide study guide for advanced grammar themes

5) Add some FUN.... for your students and for yourself!

When my students are having fun, so am I! But games can serve for more than just fun :)

If my students are too quiet on a Monday, I try to spice things up a bit. If they are too rowdy on a Friday, I try to rein them in with one of our routine games. That way, their energy is being used for good!

My go-to fun yet effective activities are the following:

Taco Tuesday -- A game that can be differentiated for all proficiency levels!

Hot Seat -- This is an easy way to quickly and accurately assess the progress of EACH STUDENT individually without calling attention to those that may need extra support.

Tiburones -- Lets them have fun, but gets them SPEAKING in the process! You decide whether one word is good enough, or whether they need to create a full sentence aloud ;)

6) Grab EDITABLE TEMPLATES

These resources will save you time and $ for years to come! Recently, I created completely editable versions of my most popular activities.

EDITABLE BUNDLE - This bundle includes the editable versions of my favorite activities. Right now this includes Editable Sonidos Secretos, Taco Tuesday, Tiburones, Puzzles, Doble Donas, Guerra de Miel, Llama Mía, AND La Lluvia. It is an AWESOME deal, and the price will *NEVER* be lower than it will be this week. If I add new templates in the future, the price will only go up! 

Editable Taco Tuesday - This is my most popular editable resource. It comes with 4 versions of the game!



I hope these ideas help get you started tomorrow! Feel free to contact me with any questions on IG, FB, or by email at theengagedspanishclassroom@gmail.com. Happy shopping!

Thank you for reading,
Erin Coleman
