How to Get Free Teachers Pay Teachers Resources
It’s that time of year again; back to school! You, like most teachers and parents, are probably spending a lot of money on school supplies and clothes. Because living on a budget is a reality, I want to share a tip with you on how to get free Teachers Pay Teachers resources.
There are plenty of free Teachers Pay Teachers printable resources for learners of all ages. These free resources are great, but are typically limited in content. For example, I offer a free Question of the Day sample to let you see the format and try it out for one week in the classroom. Then, if you like it, you can purchase the entire resource which includes 185 questions to get you through the school year.
Likely under 10 pages, the free teachers pay teachers resources are samples of the teacher author’s content creation. This is wonderful, but you may be looking for more than a single worksheet.
Teachers Pay Teachers Bundles
Teacher authors are now creating more bundles than ever to help save you money and time.
Teachers and parents are very busy, and don’t have the time to search for resources from week to week.
When you purchase year round bundles, you have everything you need for the entire school year.
For example, let’s say your students loved the Back to School Building Sentences activity, and you now want to make that a seasonal writing center.
The Year-Round Building Sentences bundle will not only save you money, but it will also save you time from searching for the activity when each holiday quickly creeps up.
Your seasonal writing center for kindergarten and first grade will be at your fingertips; simply print and go. Like most year round bundles, this resource includes back to school, Fall, Thanksgiving, Winter, Valentine’s Day, Mothers Day, Weather and Seasons, and more!
Earn Free Teachers Pay Teachers Resources
Because bundles save you so much time and money, you may be finding your TPT wish list getting bigger and bigger. Don’t stress about it, because I’m going to show you how you can earn credits to get free Teachers Pay Teachers resources.
Earning credits is the easiest thing in the world. Are you ready for it….leave feedback on your paid purchases. That’s it! Yes, friends, if you simply leave feedback on your paid TPT purchases, you will earn TPT credits.
According to their website, TPT credits can accumulate and be used to earn free Teachers Pay Teachers resources. For every $1.00 you spend on TpT, you can earn 1 credit. Every 20 credits you earn equals $1.00 you can apply to future TpT purchases.
For example, if you provide feedback on a $3.75 item, you will earn 4 credits.
To leave feedback, go into your TPT dashboard, and click on “My Purchases”. You will find a link that says “provide feedback” under each of your resources.
Once you click on “provide feedback”, an anonymous feedback box will open. This feedback is for TPT only. It will not be publicly displayed.
After leaving anonymous feedback, you will be asked to leave public feedback. I always make sure to rate the 6 components, and leave a quick note for the seller. Be sure to hit submit public feedback when done.
Redeem TPT Credits
Once you’ve earned at least 20 credits, you’ll see the option to apply credits at checkout. In your cart, look under the “Checkout” button and select the “Redeem TpT Credits” box.
To redeem your credits, enter the number of credits you’d like to apply toward your order, and click “Apply.”
Earning free Teachers Pay Teachers resources can be done with TPT credits. To earn credits on TPT, simply leave feedback on all of your paid purchases.
