Margaret Nominates
Five Outstanding Freebies
October 15, 2011

     This nominees in this collection are of some of TeachersPayTeachers’ most highly rated free downloads . 

     A complete study guide for free!  Even if you don’t teach this book, grab it for a fellow teacher who does.

Text Message a Famous Figure—Encinitas—California
     This idea can easily be adapted to be used with a novel study and book characters.  A student attention-grabber!

Show Don’t Tell Activity—Kristin Bowers—California
     A great activity for helping students learn to write with a professional flair from one of TpT’s finest.  Students who love to write must have this item in their resource folder.

     A top-notch PowerPoint with more than 2,000 downloads and a perfect 4.0 rating.  Don’t pass by this one.  You’ll want to check out more of Amy’s store.

Here’s something different for Halloween—a data gathering activity that ultimately transforms into a bar graph.  It’s relatively new, but the ratings are already at the top of the scale.

Download and enjoy.  Don’t forget to leave positive feedback for the authors.


  1. Margaret, I am so honored that you choose one of my science products for your spotlight this week. It was very kind of you. I hope your readers will pass it on to their science teacher friends!

  2. Thank you so much, Margaret! What a very nice surprise...and honor.
