MY DDIL would love some books (not websites) for Christmas to help her with creative ideas and reproducibles in lessons. Well I searched and searched many sites: Scholastic, Creative Teaching Press, The Education Center (Mailbox) and almost everything is digital! Now, I love all Mailbox Magazine ideas...have not only used them through the years but I am also a contributing writer for them! I finally snagged the last copy of a favorite Mailbox Teacher resource book on Amazon last night (an oldie but goodie). But what a struggle to find good books!
Just venting about the good-ole days, I guess! Digital is not always better and DDIL while tech savvy is only 28 years old and would prefer some good old fashioned books! Thanks for listening.

A friend and I were talking about TpT and she was saying now she doesn't have to go to the teacher's store. I commented that I still like to go there, browse around, see what's there and I still like to buy good, old-fashioned resource books.

I have subscribed to Scholastic Printables. I love it.

what are you looking for. Maybe someone here could help. I'm sure I'm not the only one here that buys way too many books and then changes grade levels.

What grade is she teaching? I am retiring in a year and have a ton of teacher stuff. Some is from very recent years. I have copied out the ideas from them that I use and would love to see them go to a good home.

this year after a few years in third. I also teach first and have been able to guide her and provide lots of information. I had given her a subscription to Mailbox Magazine when she first started teaching third for a couple of years.

Thanks, Annalilbit...I will certainly mention Scholastic Printables to her and she may already be aware of it. My son just told me she would love some good books with reproducibles for Christmas.
I think you absolutely could sell Mailbox stuff on ebay! I also have a ton!!! I was hoping for some newer resources that were now common core aligned but not digital resources for her. Thanks for the offer though!
