    I have five files listed and I make about 5-10 dollars a month. One of my summer projects is to beef up what I have on there.

    Here is my store if anyone is looking for it

    http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Pencil-Monkey

    I'm still in the process of uploading tons of stuff. I have 1000's of files of things I have made over the years. Please follow me! I teach 4-5th grade math and science.

    GoldenPoppy - it's looking good! I know the feeling - I'm changing grades, and haven't had near the time to get anything new done, with the very small exception of some new CCSS lesson plan templates. I'm almost finished with the ones for 5th grade, then I'll be done with those. I pray I have more time for some more "creative" stuff!

    I have wishlisted items I might purchase for next year. So far, I have only used freebies, but am perfectly willing to pay for something that will save me time and is reasonably priced and goes to a hard-working educator.

    I plan to post items over the next year.

    I read a fascinating article in Instructor Magazine about the top TPT seller reaching 1 million dollars in sales. I was shocked. I had no idea there was that much potential. Here is the article:

    Wow, that was a really good article. She made some very good points! Thanks for sharing.

    Those of you, like WFL who mentioned no "age appropriate" materials for life skills kiddos, man you are so right. I used to make all of my own materials and units when I taught life skills. You HAD to because you were given NOTHING. But now that I teach k-2, I have curriculum and don't make as much of my own things anymore. Just little things here and there. Nothing to make major money off of.

    Dang it. :rolleyes:

    There are definitely a few niche's to be filled. I'm working on uploading stuff daily to fill in some of those gaps.

    Maybe you can upload yours too zoom.

    I like it. I have purchased a few items off there and downloaded some of the free items. :) As for selling things on there, I've never had the best of luck. Eventually, I know it'll get better.

    Deanna Jump's article on Scholastic is inspiring, by the way. :)

    So, I just read their copyright page. I've never uploaded anything, even though I have a ton of lessons and units I could use, but I've been worried about using specific strategies from trainings.

    For example, if I wanted to include a particular Kagan strategy and made up the worksheet or handout with all pertinent information for the lesson, is that ok? Or is that a violation?
