Irish publishers and companies have I think, reacted so well to the lockdown. These companies adapated straight away, making resources and books available and accessible to parents. I will list the ones I found particularly helpful below.
CJ Fallon made logins available to parents- I have been using their Sounds like Phonics resources. The link is below.
Gill and Macmillan have amazing read along with me readers which are brilliant for emerging readers.https://www.gilleducation.ie/primary
Prim Ed Publishing have created a number of home learning resources, many of which are free.https://www.prim-ed.ie/blog/post/parent-information-centre/
Folens provided access to all their books online, hugely hepful. https://www.folens.ie/
Dabbledoo Music provided free content too. https://dabbledoomusic.com/ We use Dabbeldoo in school and it is excellent and highly interactive.
Twinkl have offered free membership since schools closed.
It is not a company but this website is run by a fellow teacher and it is fantastic. If I had children of a school going age it is the only resource I would use. It gives loads of activities for each day in each subject, it is practical, hands on, with easy to implement and follow ideas. I can’t recommend it enough. https://julieannedevlin.com/
Thank you to all the above for making life a little easier for teachers and parents alike!
