Hi! I'm Renee, and I am a primary school  teacher working in Queensland, Australia and Free Teacher Worksheets is my website. 

I know what it is like to be in a hurry and need resources for lessons.  

One of the most frustrating problems of teaching is finding the right resources. This takes lots of time and that is the one thing teachers don't have.

If I am teaching a subject I like to have lots of visuals and text examples that my students can explore and play with. However, finding them isn't always that easy.

Looking on the internet for resources is like walking barefoot on a rocky road.  You might find a lesson similar to what you have in mind but then discover that it is too simple or too difficult. You might find some images that look great but they are pixalated or need to be re-sized and framed to be useful.  You might find some words and questions that would be useful but they are stuck on the web page and not in a printable sheet.  

I faced these sorts of problems so many times that I started making my own resources.  When I had colleagues ask to use them as well, I  decided to make this website. 

Free Teacher Worksheets is my growing collection of classroom ready worksheets and resources. 

Please feel free to use them in any early childhood, kindergarten or primary school setting that you like.

A lot of my resources are simple images, lists and frames. I like to use resources that are flexible so that I can be more responsive and spontaneous in the classroom.  If we are studying ants and the class is excited about the idea of having an ant as a pet then I would like to tap into that energy.  Having access to a lot of open ended resources allows me to do that.

A picture of an ant to color in with a frame underneath can lead to a list of pet ant names, a list of things an ant needs to survive, an account in the day of the life of an ant or a picture of my family as ants. 

On many of the resources I have included extension activity and lesson ideas. These are just meant to be prompters to get your own ideas flowing.  

Free Teacher Worksheets Activity Ideas

All the Free Teacher Worksheets on this site can be used for the focus of a full lesson.

Here are some ideas that you can use to get the most out of them.

Before you hand out a worksheet, introduce the subject.

You could:

  1. Explore the subject by looking at what you already know. Brainstorm ideas on the board or ask your students to work in small groups and write down everything they know.                                                                                                        
  2. Explore the relevence of the subject in every day life. How often do you use this concept, or see it, or hear about it?                                                                                                                  
  3. Compare the subject with other things.  What is it similar to?  What is it the opposite of?  What does it remind you of?                                                                                                          
  4. Think what you would like to know about the subject.  Write a list of class questions on the board.  Anything goes!                                                                                                            
  5. Get a bit silly and consider some mind rattling ideas.  How is this subject like custard, burnt trees or old trains?  What would happen if the subject was as big as a house or as small as an ant?  How could this subject be used as the focus of an Olympic sport?  

When your students have finished the worksheet they can extend on the concepts by:

  1. Drawing a diagram                                                                                                   
  2. Incorporating them into a story                                                                                    
  3. Designing a game based on it                                                                               
  4. Using a dictionary, thesaurus, books or the internet to discover one new fact about it.                                                                                                     
  5. Designing a poster that explains the information.                                                      
  6. Writing a paragraph explaining what the key pieces of information in the worksheet are.                                                                                                        
  7. Writing a problem or question that relates to the worksheet. These could be written on the board for everyone to complete or be used for homework.                                                                                           
  8. Taking the key words and scramble them into mixed up words.  Can someone else figure out what the words are.                                                                                                     
  9. Designing your own lesson or activity based on the subject.  Discuss what skills it will develop.                                                                                                                             
  10. Brainstorming what you know about the subject.  If you did this at the start of the lesson or at the start of exploring the subject then revisiting this activity is a great way to discover what your students have learnt.                                                                                                                                   
  11. Writing 10 question cards based on the subject and quiz the class or your friends.
