As teachers, it is super easy to run away with hundreds of dollars on stuff that might only last a few weeks or that you’ll only use once. I’ve found a heap of awesome freebies and super cheap resources which I’ve used over and over. It’s taken me forever to build up a resource collection. I’ve been lucky enough to have been handed a list of the best and most affordable resources on Educents for teachers and homeschoolers which I’m allowed to share with you. Check it out below.- they’re all $20 or less!
This planner includes dated journal pages, practical forms, motivational quotes, and teaching aides to make your homeschool planning effortless and enjoyable. I’m even contemplating purchasing it for classroom use next time I find myself with a long term contract.
