Three Reasons to Visit "My Purchases" on TpT and Info on EASEL (the new TpT digital tool)

Hi Teaching Friends, 

I'd like to share three reasons to visit "My Purchases" within your TpT Account and updates on EASEL by TpT (the new TpT Digital Tool). 

To get to this section of your account, go to the TpT homepage, and click on your name (or account name). A drop-down menu will appear. "My Purchases" is one of the options in the middle column. 

1) Many teacher authors frequently update and enhance resources. Enhancing text and graphics, adding an ink-saving black and white option, and setting resources up for use with the EASEL by TpT (the new TpT Digital Tool) have been my recent areas of focus.


Once you have purchased a resource, you will always have access to these revisions - at no additional charge. 

Scrolling through the resources you have purchased, a Newly Updated - Download for Free message will appear below any resources which have been revised since you last downloaded them. 

Download the current versions of those files to enjoy the latest additions and enhancements! 

2) By reviewing resources you have purchased, you can earn credits for use on future purchases.  

Just below the title of each resource, you'll see either a note thanking you for reviewing the item, or a note inviting you to do so now. 

3) This is a great time to scroll through the resources you have purchased, and consider how they would best fit into your plans.

Personally, I have purchased over 300 resources on TpT. I've decided to scroll through this list at least twice a year. Each time I do, I am reminded of resources which have not been top of mind, but could be very useful.


A Note About EASEL (the New TpT Digital Tool):

If you use Google Classroom (which is free and easy to set up), you can assign activities directly to students using the new TpT Digital Tool.

If you are not using Google Classroom, but your students have gmail accounts, you can generate a link to assign these activities.  

This tool will work with any PDF resource in my shop. There is no additional charge for using resources that teacher authors have set up. This applies to past and current purchases. 

You can access this tool directly through the resource page.  

Click on the image below, to go to a FREE sample resource through which to check out this digital tool. 

First, download this free resource to gain access to the digital tool.  

Under Download Now, there will be a button for the EASEL  Activity.

If you click this button, it will take you to the digital resource. 

I have added answer boxes. You can customize the activity by adding additional instructions, modifying or deleting the answer boxes I have inserted, and selecting which pages to assign to your students. 

A sample of a page completed in EASEL is shown below.

If you decide to try this out, please let me know if you have any questions.  

TpT is continually adding features to this tool. I am also learning how to set resources up to make them most useful. 

Wishing you all the best throughout these tricky and ever-changing times.
