Beat The Price Increase

On August 5th, our prices will be going up. But if you sign up before then, you can lock in the CURRENT pricing and your fee will NEVER increase if you subscribe to automated renewals! That means you’ll have access to ALL our fantastic projects such as Wellbeing Wednesday, SPEAK Phonics, C.R.E.A.T.E Science and so much more with no increase in your price! And as an added bonus for new users, if you use the code LOCKITIN at the checkout, you can get 15% off of the cost of the first year of your ULTIMATE membership!

Already a member? Then no further action is required on your part! If you keep your auto renewal running, you’ll keep paying the price that you already do. It’s that simple!

SPEAK Phonics

We’re continuing to add on to our SPEAK Phonics scheme as we have now finished and uploaded our final set of resources for the July schedule. Introducing Tricky Word Group Activities for Groups 1-5! Use the double sided word cards to teach the Tricky Words from each group and use alongside the Teaching Guide. This is a very important milestone as we officially complete the first month and move into what we have lined up for you in August.

We also have our fourth Taster Pack for SPEAK Phonics now available to download. The Block 4 Taster Pack contains a taste of everything you need to teach the sounds ‘a-e’.

Elmer is Here

We’ve got a wonderful selection of Elmer resources available to download on our site! Elmer is a story that promotes everyone’s uniqueness and individuality.

Take a look at our resources today!

Countdown Display Pack

The pack includes everything you need for a successful starter activity to kick off your class’s day, or use to have the class compete in various challenges throughout the day. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to unleash your inner Carol Vorderman.

It’s Time To Fill Your Bookshelf With Phil Again

Phil has been busy finding another book to add onto the bookshelf, and this week he’s settled on Window by Jeannie Baker. The book is all about the effects that we have had on the environment. Phil says – ‘Window is a stunningly beautiful picture book which shows the view from the window of a house built on the edge of the Australian rainforest. As you turn the pages, time passes, the occupants grow up and the landscape changes. There is no accompanying text, but through inference a tale of growing up and a stark warning about urban expansion is skilfully told. This book is visually exquisite and comes highly recommended.’

Certainly highly recommended! Got any books you’d like Phil to review? Leave a comment below!
