My Most Used Resources – January/February

February 15, 2016

Hello everyone!

It is hard to believe midterm is this week- time is flying by as usual. My themes since returning to school on the sixth of January have been Chinese New Year, The Famine, and The EU-Exploring Italy. We are exploring the theme of friendship too in the broader sense of a whole school theme . These are just some of the resources I used most over the past number of weeks.

These fact books were sent to me by the Blue Star people. They are so handy for country studies/projects. We have used them a lot in preparation for our Blue Star Award!


Another Blue Star resource we’ve used:


Due to this website, I am in the fortunate position of being sent lots of resources to trial in my  classroom. Some are used once and never again, and some are used daily.

This comprehension box by Prim Ed is an excellent resource. I will review it in full at a later date. I need lots of time to review it simply because there are so many aspects to it! It provides a staged and graded approach to reading and comprehension, which makes it perfect for station teaching.


We have been using lots of fact books from our library, thanks to Scholastic for many of these, and Aldi!


Another resource from Prim Ed

I use this ‘parts of speech’ interactive CD once a week. We have covered all the parts of speech on the CD since Christmas and we will be revising them in a short midterm test on Wednesday.


Aldi catalogues have to feature of course! And joy of all joys, the leaflet linked with my theme!


This reading comprehension book by Prim Ed has been my bible lately. It is a brand new resource and it is just packed full of ideas, comprehensions, assessment guides, objectives, etc. Again, a full review coming soon, but so far, I would say it is the best comprehension and reading resource I have come across.


Science Fusion by Folens has been used frequently in my classroom. I would highly recommend it as a full and comprehensive resource for Science.
