Every dedicated teacher spends hours looking for teacher freebies on the internet. I mean, why recreate the wheel if you don’t have to, right? It’s a tedious process, but worth the reward when you stumble across something that makes your lesson more fun, interactive or effective!
I’ve put together this running list of my favorite freebies in hopes that it’ll save you some time. In the interest of full-disclosure, I have NOT been paid to include any freebies on this list.
