Twinkl offered me a 6 month membership to try out and share my thoughts on their resources. The 6 months are nearly up now and I’m devastated. When teaching in the UK, I bought a Twinkl membership while teaching Year 1 and thought it was brilliant – such a time saver and the quality of the resources were fantastic. However, when I moved back to Ireland I let my membership lapse as I was working as a resource teacher and didn’t see the point in paying for membership. I also felt at the time that the resources were more geared towards the junior end of primary schools – I was wrong however as there are brilliant resources on offer for all ages from infants to 6th class. I was also surprised to see so many resources available to cater for the needs of children with additional educational needs from visual timetables, anger management resources, motor skills etc.
In the last few weeks, I’ve been downloading bits and pieces that I plan on using next year as a resource teacher and other resources which would be great for setting up your classroom. Here are some of my favourites;
ROI Classroom Set Up Pack. Loads of great resources in this pack. Download here.
Back to School Mindfulness Colouring. Would be lovely during the first week – maybe for the start of an Art folder/display folder. Download here.
Ready Made Calendar Display Pack. Perfect for all classes! Print and laminate and you’ll be ready to go. Download here.
Birthday Graph Pack. Could make a lovely display – doubles as a Numeracy display too! Download here.
Maths Working Wall Display Pack. I love using Maths Working Walls as I find the children refer to them and use them daily! Download here.
Roald Dahl Quotes Display Pack. Would be lovely if doing a Roald Dahl topic/ in a library area! Download here.
Summer Holiday Snapshots – Writing Frame. Perfect for covering the recount genre in the first few weeks. Download here.
Reading Corner Display Quotes Posters. This might be nice in a reading area. Download here.
Create with Twinkl
You can also now create with Twinkl which allows you to make labels, worksheets, bunting, posters, colouring sheets and more which you can personalise for use in your classroom.
I’ll definitely be renewing my membership – such a brilliant site with resources for all your needs!
