Resource Packs Now Available

June 9, 2014 16 Comments

Hello everyone
I have been thinking about this today, and after lots of encouragement from my teacher friends, I have decided to try it out. As you all know, I love creating resources. I do it while watching tv, while my boyfriend is watching the football, or just when I don’t feel like doing more onerous tasks, like applying for jobs. As a result, I have lots of resources I created myself. I used to use resources I found on-line on TP and while they were great at the time, I prefer making my own when I have time. There were often spelling mistakes in the ones I would find on-line, the material would be just not quite what you’re looking for, or not quite aimed at the correct age. As for Irish, apart from our beloved Seomra Ranga, forget about finding resources!

So in order to address these problems with Irish, I began creating my own photostories.  I have quite a number of them now for all different ages, some based on Minecraft, some on popular kids cartoons, and some based on my puppets. I really enjoyed creating the Irish resource packs, so then I started doing them for English and SESE.

So, my idea is to make my resources available to teachers in Ireland, particularly student teachers who  don’t have the time to create resources, nor the money to buy them. I will charge two euro per resource, which can be posted to my address. If you think you would be interested in this, then leave a comment below. I have to charge because a lot of time went into these resources, plus a lot of money was spent on TPT for fancy fonts and clip arts. : )

    Also, it may be safer to set up paypal account and ask people to send payment as a ‘gift’

    I would definitely be interested – maybe if you took a few screen shots so we could see one or two of them before we purchase? Also agree with Jenny’s idea of paypal!!

    Why don’t you get on TPT (Teachers Pay Teachers) You can buy and sell resources and its all done for you, could be a fantastic business for yourself!
