Generous Hearts - Cre8tive Resources

Cre8tive Resources is a group of teacher-authors who work together to create resources for teachers and homeschooling parents. These folks are also being incredibly generous! Brett Kingsnorth and I belong to a group of English teachers on Facebook, and he recently posted that 100% of Cre8tive Resources profits from a FAMILY Easter product will go to support the bus drivers in London who are keeping the city running.

Brett recently posted, "To help support our London Bus Drivers all proceeds from this Easter Spring Themed Quiz will go towards helping to raise money to support them during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Cre8tive Resources will develop some more Easter Themed Resources for school children staying at home and donate ALL proceeds from sales of these to help support existing London Transport Workers on the Frontline and give school children and their families something fun to do at home to take their minds of the situation and have some Easter fun."
Michael Gillman adds, “As a small team of teachers we are coming together to launch this campaign to raise money for all those families of London Transport Workers who have lost heroic loved ones throughout this time whilst there loved one was transporting essential key workers in London to their places of work - London Transport Workers have given their lives to ensure key workers (Doctors, Nurses, Carers, emergency Services, Teachers , Civil servants, Supermarket workers and more…) are able to get to the frontline and save lives of the general public.”
“Alongside other key workers helping in the fight against Coronavirus, we are immensely proud of our team of drivers who are definitely heroes.”
Additionally, the team at Cre8tive Resources have been making up care packages for the elderly and suppy PPE gloves for local Health Services workers. In my book, this makes the team at Cre8tive Resources heros as well!

Becoming a Teacher-Author Entrepreneur Parts 1 and 2

Why become a Teacher-Author Entrepreneur? Have you ever worked with one of those teachers who can quickly create the most awesome lesson plans in a 40 minute period, and you just know that your kids are going to love doing this amazing thing, and you are exhausted trying to keep up with the creation process just from watching? And these same amazing people wonder why everyone else spends HOURS of personal time creating lessons at home. Yeah. They are irritating, and fantastic, and always giving. And I am NOT one of them. It takes me HOURS to put together a great lesson or even the lesson plan. I used to think of those as invested - but lost- hours, because I only had to plan it once, and then I would have a hard copy for perpetuity. But I would never get the time back, and we don't get paid extra for working in the evenings, weekends, or during our summer (is he REALLY going to say it?) vacations, hence the "lost" factor. If you also are not genetically modified to

Becoming a Teacher-Author Entrepreneur Step 19: Creating Fillable PDFs as a REMOTE READY RESOURCE

So, with Distance Learning we have a new aspect of our resources to look at - creating the resource to be COMPLETELY useable for remote online teaching, or a REMOTE READY RESOURCE. If you are a seller with TpT, you have probably seen the offers to do the BETA testing of their automatic "fillable distance form" versions of your resources. I tried it. I did not like it. It is basically a text box placed over every page. And, from what we teacher-authors have been hearing, customers don't like these either. So, what's an Entrepreneur to do? Create the resource to match the need! All of the Novel Study Guides mentioned  are available on AUL, The Wheel Edu and TpT Fortunately, this is a fairly easy fix, IF you create the way I have tried to show you, in PowerPoint. It took me 6 hours to recreate our Touching Spirit Bear  Novel Study Guide, 4 hours for the Novel Study Guide for A Long Walk to Water, and a whopping 2 hours for Rumble Fish  to become a REMOTE READY RESOURCE.
