Tried and True Resources

All of the following resources come with my personal seal of approval. I have used each of these resources myself and found them to be extremely helpful. 

Go Noodle

Go Noodle is my go-to website to find brain breaks for kids. As a class, students participate in brain break videos and earn points towards growing a Go Noodle “champ” to level them up. You can choose brain breaks that are high energy, calming, dance tutorials, etc.

Fairy Dust Teaching

Fairy Dust Teaching has many wonderful resources for early years teachers. They offer professional development workshops, blog posts with ideas, freebies to download, and much more!

International Children’s Digital Library (ICDL)

I really enjoy this website as an alternative to paper books. You can search by so many different variables: age audience, length of the book, countries, time periods, genre, subject, date it was published on the site, etc., etc., etc.

FN Music

This Canadian Heritage website has a wealth of interesting information and helpful resources to help teach about traditions in First Nations cultural music. I used it extensively during my Grade 3 Music Unit.

Maths Dictionary for Kids

I love this website for finding easy to understand definitions for over 630 mathematical terms. The text is succinct and includes colourful diagrams with helpful labels. A must have resource for teaching elementary math units! I used this while planning a Patterns unit for Kindergarten – the definitions were easy enough to use with Kinders.
