On snow days I like to poke around Teachers Pay Teachers, and work on my blog, facebook and pinterest. About a month ago, I noticed there were a lot of comments that teachers were frustrated trying to find photographs to use in their products. Some teachers said they like to use real images rather than use clip art that can lean toward too-cute at times. So I started to cull through the millions of photos that my husband and I have taken in our travels, and some copyright free photos I've collected over the years for use in my own classroom and teaching materials, and I put together some sets of photos that are perfect for personal or commercial use. One of the sets is this one that includes US Landmarks and Monuments. You can click the picture to see the full set in preview.
I'm looking forward to seeing how my buyers are using these photos and the photos in my other sets, too. I have sets of animals (mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians) and a set of community helpers. My most recent package is Sea Life, that includes starfish, whales, sharks, corals, and a variety of other sea creatures. If you pick up one of my photo packs on Teachers Pay Teachers, please let me know how you used it and I'll do a blog post about your product!
Last night I got a message from Karen at Luvs2TeachinCA who used my US Landmarks photo package to put together this great unit for kindergarten and first grade. Click the picture to see the product in preview on TpT.
