top 5 freebies of 2022
2022 - what a year!
In particular, the launch of Planning Course Academy, Model For Me and many other online courses and guides were a massive achievement! These have enrolled over 200 students across the world targeting a wide range of learning areas for teachers to upskill in.
Creating these has been a dream come true! Sharing more of my learning, teaching and practice for others to take back into their classrooms for themselves. Something I have been working towards since I first started Mrs Priestley ICT!

QR code Fact Files
These QR code fact files are a great way to bring QR codes and facts together in your classroom. Use these to front load information, find facts or just to include in your classroom programme. I have three QR code fact files already - all free to download and use in your classroom! Find them below!
Ball pit word game
So I went to the shops and grabbed some different types of balls to go in my ball pit - being a plastic container box. How does it work?
Students use the recording sheet alongside the box and can play either by themselves or with a buddy. They take turns picking out a ball, saying the word that is on it and then writing it down on the recording sheet. Students would leave that ball they picked out of the box so students can pick it again.
Another way they could play is with the buddy, once they have picked out the balls to swap recording sheets. Students could then ask each other how to spell a word that was picked out!
Lots of great fun using this resource and I can't wait to get this going in word work time!

I just used a white folder from Kmart I had lying around my classroom and created a cover sheet with some inspirational quotes on the inside. Then used clear files to add in all the pictures and things that I want to reflect back on and remember.
