A-Z of Fun Things To Do Instead of Making Resources


Let's just lay it out there, teachers are a rare breed. There is no other career that springs to mind when I think about the tedious hours worked along with the minimal pay for the input given. Yet teachers are so dedicated to the education of their students. If you are one of the many fantastic teachers who help make the world a better place on a daily basis then I thank you from the bottom of my heart.


Being a teacher you are often faced with the job of wearing dozens of hats that act as different roles. From being a school nurse to a graphic designer the jobs are endless. The truth is, with the modern world of technology you can now save time switching between so many jobs by seeking outside help. TPT (teacherspayteachers.com) is the perfect place to browse at your own pleasure in order to reduce the amount of time and effort that is needed to carry out your daily teaching job. 

Today I am going to provide you with 26 fun things you could be doing instead of spending tedious hours developing your own resources. I will do this by using the letters A-Z to add a fun educational element.
