Elementary Classroom Teacher and Students blue bullet point Before I started Unique Teaching Resources, my goal was to publish a teaching resource book of my materials.

blue bullet point I felt that there were two problems that I would face if my teaching resource book was published:

  1. I would not be able to provide free samples of my teaching resources for teachers to try and decide if they liked the style and quality of my work.

  2. Teachers would not have colored copies of my resources to use, and instead would have to photocopy worksheets and templates out of a book. Many of my free teaching resources benefit from teachers being able to print them out in color, instead of spending valuable time coloring them by hand.

Download Free From Unique Teaching Resources
blue bullet point By creating my own website, I have solved both of these problems. I can offer so much more than I ever would have been able to if I had published my teaching resources book. Plus, I have learned so many new things in creating my web site, and I have found it an exciting and exhilarating learning experience and challenge.

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

Name: Mary (Grade 4)
From: New York, U.S.A.

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!

Name: Margaret (Grade 5)
From: Victoria, Australia
