Happy Summer to those of you who have broken up from school already! I still have six weeks to go until the end of the year, so if you’re like me and still not finished, I hope you have a great few last weeks at school before the holidays!
Last week I had an exciting day on Wednesday when I met with Karen and Talya from the Teachers Pay Teachers team and other UK sellers at the first TpT UK meet up! It was great to meet with others who were involved with the site and discuss TpT. Karen and Talya came all the way over from the US to meet with us to discuss ways to make TpT work even better for those of us over here in the UK. I love that TpT is always looking for ways to improve and seeking out opinions of its users, even it means travelling all the way across the Atlantic Ocean to do so!
Karen and Talya met with sellers in Liverpool and also in London during the week. I travelled to the Liverpool meet. We met at the Hard Day’s Night Hotel, which is a Beatles themed hotel in the centre of Liverpool. A great location for getting a feel for the culture of the city. We had a great evening of eating, talking and sharing thoughts and ideas. I am really excited about the potential that TpT has in the UK and the new developments that TpT are planning for us over here. Thank you Talya and Karen for coming all this way to see us and thanks TpT for thinking about us!
After the meet I was inspired to get started on creating a few UK-specific resources. My first is a set of UK Coin Recognition and Addition Task Cards. Each task card has 4 to 5 UK coins which students must recognise and then add up to find the total amount. The cards are differentiated on three levels with three different sets of 12 cards each. Check them out!
