• After 30 years of teaching, I thought it was well overdue to start sharing all those gems that you use in your day to day teaching that help make learning more meaningful and fun.

    I began to build a resource kit for myself when I began casual teaching, and then I realised just how many ideas and activities I had been using over the years. I have spent many hours searching through websites, searching books for great ideas and activities.
    I have now collected and compiled my book of activities and hints for casual teachers ......
    A survival Kit to take with you when the phone rings, and you aren't sure what to take with you.

  • Over 600 pages of ideas and activities!!

    This bundle has my most popular resources in it. "The Survival Kit for Casual Relief Teachers"-111 pages of ideas and activities linked across all KLA's. This is a great starter for any Casual Teacher's resource kit, so many ideas that are guaranteed to make your life a little easier.
