In celebration of teacher appreciation week, we want to thank you for the hard work you put into preparing your students for the future.

To show our appreciation, we've rounded up six free resources that you can use to set your students up for success.

 
1. Develop research skills with your students. Use Bing in the Classroom lesson plans, covering numerous subjects, to improve search skills. Receive ad-free search, strict filtering, and added privacy protections.

 
2. Give your students Microsoft Office. Provide students real-world communication, integration, and presentation skills. If your school has Microsoft Office for faculty and staff, you can get it for students at no extra cost.

 
3. Spark your students' imaginations. Prepare to optimize your classroom with technology during a Windows in the Classroom seminar. Hold a free session at your school, online, or in your area.


4. Network with educators around the world. Connect with peers, plus get free software and hundreds of educator-created activities, tutorials, and training with Microsoft Educator Network.

 
5. Take a hands-on technology workshop. Get 21st-century ideas for different learning styles during expert-led Microsoft in-store educator workshops in the U.S. Course materials help make lesson planning easier.

 
6. Make spelling lessons more dynamic. Conduct spelling bees with the Spelling Bees app. Your students can also use it to practice words, learning additional facts as they travel around the world. We hope these resources help enhance your students' education.

As an additional thank-you for your dedication, you and your students can save 10 percent at the Microsoft Store. For this offer, and more exclusive educator tools, visit Microsoft in Education.
