More about IWB resources!


The list of IWB resources and web pages is not closed! 

Thanks to Rowan, one of my blog readers, I had the opportunity to take a deep look to TESiboard, probably one of the best interactive resources page I’ve ever found.

You can find lots and lots of activities (with the “Activity Finder” tool) for math (numeracy), literacy  (language arts), phonics, science, ICT (technology – my world), geography, history, and more … for students in Educació Infantil (EYFS in the UK), Cicle Inicial  (Key Stage 1 in the UK) and Cicles Mitjà i Superior (Key Stage 2 in the UK).

It provides teachers of all levels with:
  • Units of work: A complete teaching pack for a mini-topic: at least a week’s worth of lesson plans, interactive activities, texts and worksheets, images and supporting printables.
  • Skill builders: Sets of lively practice games for whole class or individual use (differentiation). These are structured to provide tiny steps through core skills, including mental calculations and Phonics.
  • Teaching tools: Every-day interactive resources to crack a concept or secure a skill. 

But the most important thing is that the interactives are extremely high quality, not only because the graphics and interface are great, but also because sounds effects.

Here’s a screenshot from one of the activities:
Clic on the image and you will get the "Activity finder" engine!
