Teachers. Holidays. YIPPEE!

No need to wake in the morning wondering about timetable issues!

Holidays are GREAT!

But, during the break, please DO take the opportunity to check out any teaching resources that will actually benefit your students more, while MAKING LIGHTENING YOUR TEACHING PREPARATION TIME!

Such resources DO exist.

They make teaching an even-more-enjoyable experience!

And you don’t have to look far from this post to see a great maths resource.

But maybe we’re a bit biased!

No, Sir! It’s NOT the Teacher’s Fault!

Who to blame?

Declining standards in primary school achievement levels Maths, in English, in Spelling, in Grammar, in Punctuation, in . . .  well, you name it!

The research is in.

And, it seems, Australian students are struggling to achieve what students in other countries are achieving.

Why?

Well, maybe . . . just MAYBE . . . the “Educational Authorities” are asking far too much of teachers, while simultaneously ignoring the need of teachers for structured, sensible, PRACTICAL curricula that can actually BE implemented in classrooms around this wonderful nation.

Some of us are providing worthwhile materials that HELP students to develop the skills needed in these areas.

Others just TALK about it. And talk is cheap.

We need curriculum support materials that genuinely help teachers to help their students, without demanding time-consuming preparation.

We need Educational Leadership to actually DELIVER THE GOODS. Not theorise about it, leaving teachers to “close the gaps.”

Our Worksheets are a great example of stuff that actually WORKS in the classroom.

To the benefit of all — students, teachers and schools. Thousands are now using them. To great effect.

Give them a go!
