Stop trying to reinvent the wheel!

During teaching practice and when I first qualified I felt I needed to make everything from scratch. I made countless notebook presentations, powerpoints, worksheets etc. I soon realised I was wasting time concentrating on making resources and not on the actual teaching.
There are fantastic websites with free resources which you can easily download and then save (for future use) or print or display on your IWB.
