Shut the Door and Teach

Board of ideas I want to share with teachers in the upper elementary grades. Some are repins and some are photos of things I've done in class that link to my blog. Some are free and priced Teacher Pay Teachers products. Most pins on this board are original ideas from Amber Thomas, author of Shut the Door and Teach. Teaching resources including lesson plans, classroom decor ideas, unit plans, anchor charts, read alouds, video clips, blog posts, and so on.
