I discovered Lesson Planet by accident, and am so glad I did. There would be times when I feel the materials provided to me are inadequate, and this site gave me exactly what I was looking for. I really love it when I give a task, and my students completely take over! I observe how determined they are to get the job done, and they feel more confident when the work is a success!
