TFAD has such brilliant no-prep ideas that I can show up with my usual handbag and be ready to go, and am now super flexible with all these great ideas in my head! It’s made me much more confident in my own teaching, as well, even if there is work left for the day.
I love the quick activities, the extension activities & that it covers from prep to year 6.
I found I don’t need to pack as many resources as they are bound together all in one place. My favourite feature is the reflection plan. The examples remind me to find a positive in every day. I also stamp the PAID section once I have received my pay.It helps me keep track and reflect on my teaching. I would definitely recommend the book for relief teachers as a necessity in your bag of tricks.
Made me confident in having a day of work if nothing has been left. Love the layout of the book, simple and easy to follow but also really attractive and with pictures of activities such as art.
Thank you so much Kelly, exactly what I needed
It’s handy, useful and thorough.
If put on the spot and needing some time fillers it’s quick and easy to implement an activity from the book and they are engaging activities that the students enjoy. I love that the activities are with little or no photocopying and preparation to implement in class.
Thank you for creating an easy to use resource that can be used in any school, with any level, that is engaging and has worthwhile activities that can be used for 1 day or continued over a couple of days.
Things I love about it
1) Reminders about behaviour management and appropriate strategies
2) A list of resources
3) Ideas for activities.
Favourite part about it are the games – I just have no idea where to start and this gives me the basics.
