I created personal folders based on Term then week work. This way year after year I could access the relevant resources again without all the work.
We had 3 teachers in our year. So each teacher was assigned a strand to create a public folder and add relevant resources and create new activities in. This split up our work load and meant we had a comprehensive folder of interactive resources at a touch of a button. Because we made our folders public within the school all teachers could access the folders which was great for relief teaching and across all classes.
I work in a small school with one class ranging from F – 2. In one class you need lots of varying resources easily accessible in one place. I could actually use the interactive whiteboard for the whole class using the same resources just varying the difficulty for different year groups.
In the first year of using Ideal Resources I made approx 20 word searches using word group’s ee, ea, er, re, long, short words. This year I could quickly click on the folder and relevant word search to give to my new class. Easy.
I have been using Ideal Resources for 5 years and when I changed schools I was devastated they didn’t have Ideal Resources. I purchased personally a single teacher subscription and with one call to Ideal they transferred all my folders and created activities to my new login. I will also be able to move all theses folders to my new school when they finally purchase next year. I haven’t lost any of my work.
I made homework folders for my three maths groups. Each week I would put in 3 or 4 activities in each folder for students to play at home. I chose games like Ghost Blasters, Stop the clock, eggs on legs that were fun. Although I couldn’t track how completed the tasks I could tell by the increase in their skills. They wanted to play the games. They are not drill exercises
