Members of TBOTEMC’s Teacher Talk write educational blog posts on their personal blogs. If you don’t have time to maintain a blog, use our TBOTE blogs or TBOTEMC WordPress blog.  Teacher Talk blog posts follow an 80% content/20% promotion guideline in which members write about a particular topic and then include a link to a TpT product to help readers implement the teaching ideas.  Each month, the Teacher Talk members’ blog posts are promoted on our five TBOTEMC blogs.  All of the blog links are also promoted on each members’ blogs, Teacher Talk Pinterest board, and TBOTEMC Facebook page.  At the end of the year, all of the Teacher Talk blog posts are listed in our “100+ Free Lessons & Teaching Ideas By Teacher Talk” eBook.  These Teacher Talk eBooks are promoted again in all of our holiday eBooks, on Pinterest and Facebook, and in our Rafflecopter Giveaway Contests.  Thus, through the power of cross-promotion, your one blog post will be promoted again and again long after you have written the initial blog post.

-That Fun Reading Teacher

“I joined The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative about a year and a half ago on a whim.  I loved TpT from the start, but I needed some connections…something beyond the forums.  I got the membership on sale that day thinking I would try it out and just see how things go.  I never looked back.  Membership in this group has helped me break free of my comfort zones and take my store to the next level.  The group members are supportive, and Vicky is always available for individual help and guidance.  I feel like I have my own TpT personal trainer!  Although my original purpose for joining this group was to learn some serious marketing strategies, it has turned out to be so much more.  I now collaborate with teachers from all over the country!  Some of us even met in person in Vegas and Orlando.  Not only have I improved my TpT marketing, but I have also made friends for life!  If you have any questions, feel free to email me at monicam8084@gmail.com.  I can earn a referral credit if you join and mention my name (Monica) and store Fourth Grade Frenzy which is not required, but appreciated!” -Monica https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Fourth-Grade-Frenzy

“Since joining, I can say that this group has really made the HUGE TpT community feel smaller and more reachable.  There is so much shared marketing knowledge, so many dedicated marketing groups that you can join, and Vicky has been such a great help with any and all questions I have had.  I love being my own boss, but sometimes I can lose track of how to spend my time.  The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative has helped me focus the time I spend marketing, and keep my marketing goals on track.

“The best part of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative is the enthusiasm & innovative spirit of members, and the willingness to support each other.  I’ve connected with the most fabulous group of educators who are making me a better teacher and teacherpreneur! Vicky is amazing; she’s a bundle of energy and is always open to new ideas for growing our business.  I love that when a TBOTEMC member has a idea, she encourages them to run with it and to take the lead.  I can’t recommend this group enough! -Tried and True Teaching Tools https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Tried-And-True-Teaching-Tools

“TBOTEMC is a group of fabulous educators who help each other navigate the sometimes scary aspects of marketing our work!
-Kerry Tracy

“The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative where teachers CARE, SHARE, and PREPARE.” ~Connie  http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Connie 

The most important thing about TBOTEMC is the feeling that together we are more.  Not only is Vicky a marketing genius, but she also encourages others to implement cooperative strategies that move us forward as teacher authors.”

“I have joined TBOTEMC with just 7 products in my store.  In just 3 months, I have had at least one or more sales every day!  In the first month I made $28.  In the second month I made $187. April has ended and my earnings were $376!  Joining TBOTEMC was the best decision I have made.  Contact me at teachingbiilfizzcend@gmail.com.”
-Teaching Biilfizzcend

“Joining forces with TpT teachers from around the world through TBOTEMC has not only caused my earnings to more than double in a year’s time, but has given me the confidence to try new things, expand my marketing strategies, and build genuine relationships with fellow teacherprenuers.” -21st Century K  

“What I Like Best About TBOTEMC:  I have learned so much since becoming a member of this group.  My products have gained more exposure, and this group helps me not to feel like such a “little fish” in the BIG TpT World!
-Teaching Where You’re Called

“The group dynamic is really great, and super supportive. I have learned so much from group members and it has been fun to share my knowledge with them. Since joining, my store sales, social media followers, and blog followers have increased by over 10% every month. I am so glad I joined!” -Mary http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Carrberry-Creations

“The best part of joining TBOTEMC is to be able to collaborate with such a wonderful group of caring educators who are so willing to help each other.  I have been a member since the beginning of March and I’ve seen an increase in Pinterest, Facebook, and my TpT Store followers.  I have also learned a great deal about internet marketing.  Looking forward to the future and so happy that I joined this group.  The price is well worth it.” -Deann Marin https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Deann-Marin

“When I started selling on TpT in May of 2013, until I joined TBOTEMC this August, my total sales were $3,157.45. That’s for 15 months. I joined TBOTEMC August 5th of this year, just 3 months ago. In those 3 months I’ve sold $9,014.46!!!” -Leah Popinski http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Leah-Popinski

“I started TpT in May of 2014 and decided to become a member of TBOTEMC on February 28, 2015. Prior to joining, I had never had a month in which I had at least one sale every day. However, in both March and April (today is only May 1st), I had at least one (and often multiple) sales every day! I am ecstatic – and this toward the end of the school year! I am so thankful for the advice, support, and community this group provides.”  – Ashley https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/One-Step-Closer-Teaching

“TBOTEMC offers  Collegiality Lessons Activities Student Success Seller Success
Because of TBOTEMC, I reached my $20,000.00 milestone on TpT much sooner than I expected. I first joined TBOTE to gain exposure for my TpT products and my blog http://teachitwrite.blogspot.com/ – which, I’m thrilled to say, definitely happened. The Social Media Partners concept is a win-win for TpT sellers and is a marketing treasure. Victoria Leon goes out of her way to help her members to increase their selling potential.” ~Connie  http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Connie 

“I am at the beginning of an amazing journey! I recently joined TBOTEMC, and I am amazed at the opportunities in front of me. This cooperative group works together to achieve everyone’s success. I have only begun to use the extensive amount of resources available to me and can already note increases in followers and sales. Vicky is amazing and will support you in every way. You took a huge step when you became a seller at Teachers Pay Teachers. Join TBOTEMC and jump to the next level!” -Monica Fourth Grade Frenzy https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Fourth-Grade-Frenzy 

“The best part about TBOTEMC is Vicky herself. She is SO knowledgeable, enthusiastic and goes out of her way to help members. She truly embodies the value of collaboration.Through TBOTEMC, I’ve had more exposure to my blog & TpT store. It’s amazing to see what other TpT members are creating, teaching, and pinning! My Pinterest followers have grown due to TBOTEMC!” -Tried and True Teaching Tools https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Tried-And-True-Teaching-Tools

“I started selling at TpT in January of 2013 and, without much marketing, made steady progress and managed to reach the first milestone in October of 2014. After realizing the potential of this business, I decided that I MUST add marketing to my plan if I wanted to continue to rise in the marketplace to the next level. That is when I discovered Vicky’s product. With the guidance of this program, I have seen increases in all areas of my business and I have begun to enjoy the benefits of working with others for the common goal of increasing TpT awareness in the world marketplace. I highly recommend adding this to your own hard work and see where it can take you.” -Kathryn Garcia @ Made For Learning http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Kathryn-Garcia

“Since joining The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative, my sales have increased by 20%. I also think the collaborative boards are top notch in that only quality items are posted. As for other members of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative, they are outstanding educators from whom you can learn from no matter how long you have been teaching.” -Vicky Scipi on TPT http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Scipi

“I am just a beginner at TBOTEMC (as well as TPT), but am so excited already. MY NUMBER OF FOLLOWERS HAS ALREADY GROWN! I have found Vicky so very helpful, putting up with my many questions and helping me get started. Pinning from other members helps your exposure, and the interaction with other members teaches you so much. The enthusiasm of another member, Julie Jackson, along with Vicky, has made me want to spend every minute this summer improving my store and growing with this new adventure.”  Thanks,  Laurie Carpenter http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Art-Action-Laurie-Carpenter

“I am so grateful for encountering TBOTEMC – The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative! While others ignored my request to join their collaborative Pinterest boards or unfollowed me – Vicky Leon was so kind to take me under her wing and act as a mentor and befriend a stranger. I have been fortunate to be part of an organization that provides a cooperative of many teachers who support each other. I am so grateful for TBOTEMC!” -TheBeezyTeacher http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Thebeezyteacher

Dear Vicky,
I just wanted to share how TBOTEMC  is changing my life – I have attached my latest data. I did not post this to boast, only to show you the positive impact TBOTEMC is having on my success.  In the last eight months, I have made more than I make in a year teaching in the classroom.   I love teaching, but I love creating resources just as much! 
Feel free to use the data with others to help encourage others to join.
I am not sure thank you will ever be enough for how you and TpT have changed my life.  With you and TBOTEMC, I am doing things I only previous dreamed of doing.
I always loved creating educational resources, but I never dreamed I could have financial success as a teacher.  
Thank you! Thank You! THANK YOU!

Hamlet Bundle

Bundle Description

This resource now has a new format. Please note that MOST evaluations are still available in Word format for easy modifications.

One entire month of planning done for you – I dare you to enjoy Shakespeare.

I love teaching Shakespeare’s plays, and I want you to love it too. I’ve been teaching and improving this unit for over ten years. All of the thinking has been done for you. I love annotating my plays and books. I’ve taken all of the annotations made in my play over the years and incorporated them in a guide to help you guide students and help students understand. Many people (including teachers) get overwhelmed with Shakespeare because of the language. This unit has been created with the student in mind. The activities are thorough, but simple enough for students to understand and enjoy the play.

This unit has everything a teacher needs to teach Hamlet. Just photocopy and teach. Seriously it’s that easy. There’s no longer a need for hours of research and piecing together bits of information and activity sheets you don’t know what to do with.

This is a whole, complete unit, from scene summaries, important notes and annotations notes to help students understand what they are reading. I have also included an introduction to the play, a student guide, a teacher guide with detailed lesson plans, quizzes, a creative assignment, and tests (all with answers and evaluation grids), and a comprehensive answer key. Everything has its place and teaches a specific skill.

The unit is appropriate for students in grades 10, 11 and 12.

The unit includes :

– An attractive, interactive, multimedia PowerPoint presentation introducing the play (17 slides)

-A Student Study Guide (with activities, Act, and scene questions…) and various activities (16 pages)

-Study Questions are available in two different formats – Print saver (with all questions on one page – students write their answers on a separate sheet) and Long Form (Where space is provided for students to write their answers directly on the question sheet)

-A Teacher Guide (with detailed, comprehensive lessons, unit plan, and additional notes to guide students.) -9 pages and 17 complete lessons. The teacher Guide includes journal and discussion prompts and list of speaking roles if reading out loud in class)to help with time management and organization.

-18 pages of comprehensive scene summaries and important notes for each scene (annotations for each scene) ***THIS IS A TEACHER FAVORITE!

A creative Hamlet Guess Who? Game to help students understand the characters. (What’s fun about this game is that it can be played from the beginning of the play right to the end, and students’ answers will change depending on the act they are reading.) LOTS OF FUN!

-A comprehensive answer key for all questions and activities. (24 pages)

-Comprehension quiz on Acts 1 and 2 in Word format for easy modifications (with evaluation grid) and answer key.

-Option 1: Mid-play evaluation – The Parody – creative writing and analysis (in Word format for easy modifications – with evaluation grid)

-Option 2: Mid-play evaluation – The Parody – a creative group presentation (Only available in PDF format)

-Summary guide (highlighting the significant events from each scene with important analytical information) – Throughout my years of teaching this play, I have amounted excellent notes and annotations, listing the most significant actions throughout each scene. I have retyped these annotations to help you teach the play, so your students will understand it (and so will you). (18 pages)

-The culminating evaluation includes three different versions of the final unit test with evaluation grid and answer key (in Word for easy modifications)

Includes a total of 115 pages.


This resource has been created as a substitute for the traditional “questions and answers” method we are used to. As teachers, our goal is to make sure students understand the important elements from the play, but we also want to engage them in a “hands-on” fashion.

Studies demonstrate that Sketch noting and doodling help students retain information and understand concepts better than simply answering questions.

This resource allows students to complete notes during the reading process and use the images and heading provided to help them know what the focus should be on.

This is also an excellent study and review tool.

Included in this resources is:

-a note-taking page for every scene in the play

-a note-taking page for every soliloquy in the play

-a comprehensive answer key for all scenes and soliloquies
