Her tip: “If someone had told me two years ago that this was going to happen to me I would have told them they were slap crazy! I feel so honored that so many teachers are using my resources in their classrooms across the world.

To say that TpT has been a blessing would be a huge understatement. I am so thankful for the impact that TpT has had on my family and for providing me with the financial stability to also help others. But it isn’t just about the financial success. I have made some wonderful, lifelong friends thanks to TpT!”

“If you want to be successful, it’s just this simple. Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing.” ― Will Rogers

10.  PamlaJJ’s Learning Library Is From Colorado

Try this: K – 2 Word Recognition Games

Their tip: “I taught for over 20 years. Learning is always easier and retained longer when it’s presented in a fun way. The rules and format for these games can be learned in a guided reading group. Once students are familiar with them, the games can be played independently at a center. I offer a variety of other games that introduce and/or reinforce phonics skills such as my Short Vowel Card and Board Games. I encourage primary reading teachers to have a look at them.”
