Celebrating Three Years of readilearn with a gift for you discount

Like any growing three-year-old, readilearn has undergone some changes and we’ve faced some challenges throughout the year.

While all readilearn teaching resources can still be accessed through a small annual subscription fee, they can now also be purchased individually.

My commitment to provide quality lessons that support teachers teaching and children learning has not wavered. readilearn lessons involve students in discussions with teachers and provide opportunities for thinking and learning to occur. Where possible, they integrate learning across the curriculum and teach skills that can be applied in other situations.

A priority is always creating lessons that are meaningful and engaging for the children and reduce teachers’ workload by doing the preparation for you. You will not find ‘busy work’ or repetitious drills among readilearn resources.

Interactive teaching resources

The collection already includes over 70 interactive resources, lessons ready to teach on the interactive whiteboard. The preparation is done — simply display and discuss with students. Follow-up activities, when available, are useful for independent work or as group rotational activities.

Interactive lessons include:
