As the new school year beckons, LiteracyPlanet, a fun curriculum-aligned digital literacy tool, has unveiled a treasure trove of back-to-school resources specially designed for UK educators.
These invaluable resources are now available for free download via the LiteracyPlanet Pinterest page.
With teachers gearing up to return to their classrooms, the pressure to innovate and engage students looms larger than ever.
In an era marked by constrained budgets and limited teaching time, LiteracyPlanet recognised the need to provide educators with a suite of much-needed literacy resources.
Throughout the summer break, the platform diligently crafted an array of dynamic and engaging resources that promise to invigorate the learning experience.
Tom Richardson, CEO of LiteracyPlanet, expressed his vision for these resources, stating: “Our focus is not only on aiding teachers burdened by time constraints, but also on delivering a curriculum-aligned program that imparts essential skills to children.
“From writing and spelling to reading and comprehension, we weave in characters and themes that resonate with children, ensuring a fun learning journey.”
“At LiteracyPlanet, we deeply understand and want to wholeheartedly support teachers, who often dip into their own pockets to fund the purchase of resources for their classrooms. Our mission is to stand by educators in every way possible, alleviating their burdens and furnishing them with tools that breathe life into their lesson plans while nurturing students’ literacy skills.
“We recognise the dedication of teachers and strive to provide them with high-quality resources that not only enhance learning outcomes but also acknowledge their invaluable contributions to shaping young minds.”
Conveniently accessible through the LiteracyPlanet Pinterest page, these resources comprise a diverse selection of captivating worksheets, poised to engage students and lay the foundation for a successful academic year ahead.
From now until the end of term one, teachers can tap into this initial wave of resources, spanning themes such as football, animals, transport, pirates, and the festive season. The introduction of special characters adds an extra layer of excitement to the offerings.
The toolkit encompasses a variety of enriching materials:
