My Teaching Library

{Disclaimer:  I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review.  I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.}

My Teaching Library is a website offering thousands (yes, thousands!) of educational resources to download. You can purchase either an annual or lifetime Download Club Subscription Plan, which is the most cost-effective option, or purchase individual resources, which is better if you only need a few of the products. The Download Club gives you unlimited downloads.

The resources are organized by grade and by subject, which makes it really easy to find what you're looking for. There is a "Miscellaneous" category, where you'll find things like seasonal and holiday-themed products. You can also find several articles to read giving tips on educational resources.

(You can see the different categories above. There are sub-categories for each one as well.)

I have used quite a few resources from My Teaching Library the past month. Some of my favorites were the CVC Word Family resources. I am teaching a Kindergarten relative this year, and I'm using some of these printables to teach him how to read. We have used the -at and -ad word families so far. There are tons of activities in each "bundle", including cut and glue worksheets, word sliders, flashcards, games, and more. He really enjoys the activities, which making learning to read fun.

There are tons of resources for learning to read, including sight word bundles, flashcards, mini-books, and phonics books for your child to read.

My kids and I also used the "Foliage Creations" art activity as part of our autumn nature study. We went outside and gathered different sized and colored leaves and glued them to paper in the shape of animals and insects. This was a fun project with lots of colorful examples to show the kids!

I really enjoyed the seasonal activities, like the Pumpkin Poetry and Pumpkin Science. We will be doing both of these in October! The Pumpkin Poetry includes writing acrostic, diamante, haiku, limerick, monorhyme, cinquain, minute, tanka, and shape poems! My kids love reading and writing poetry, and they are going to really enjoy this.

There are book units of books for all ages, including Dr. Suess's Ten Apples Up On Top (perfect for an autumn apple study) and Number the Stars by Lois Lowry (my favorite childhood novel). I have several downloaded for future use with my kids.

We have also downloaded several poster sets including the Solar System and Nouns. There are interactive notebooks for many different subjects, shape books, writing lessons, entire textbooks to download, including one of Marine Science, math games and worksheets, foreign languages, and electives such as home economics. There are so many different resources I cannot possible name them all here. 

When you download a resource, it goes into your account's Download Library. You get an email notification that it is ready to download. This keeps all of your downloads in one central location, making it super easy to glance at what you have and download whatever you need at the time. I like this feature, because I could download several different resources and they were sent right to my Download Library, ready for me when I was ready for them! This helped me not get sidetracked or frustrated trying to download one thing at a time before looking for something else.

If you're looking for a place that has literally thousands of resources from birth to 12th grade, check out My Teaching Library!  It makes planning the fun seasonal activities so easy! See what other reviewers thought about this amazing resource by clicking the banner below.
