  10. wow!! thank you so much for compiling the list.
     
  11. Love this thread...
    BUMP! ^^
     
  12. Great thread!



    we could do with this list in the resource bank organised into headings like Mandy did - sooo useful!

    That wasn't me volunteering though! [​IMG]

    That is exactly what our website aims to do;

    <a>www.stuff4teaching.com[/URL]

    sorts and organises resources for all topics and subjects from the web and categorises them in its own website. So you just look under your age group, subject, topic and resource type to find links to exactly what you are looking for.

    We haven't been going long, but we have very positive feedback so far and links to resources from over 700 different sites.

    We charge a very low subscription of about 5p a day and you can try us for 3 months or join for a year.

    We have interactive whiteboard resources, games for the PC, worksheets, planning, printables, policies ..... you name it..... basically all stuff for teaching! <a>www.stuff4teaching.com[/URL]
     
  14. I think this thread needs a 'BUMP!' I am sure there are many on the list that people haven't looked at or didn't know about...I know I didn't know about a lot of them!!

    Hope it is of use! x

    I've created a toolbar for my browser which contains all my favourites. You can download it from the link below. If you don't like it you can quickly uninstall it. Lots of my collegues have found it really useful and quick. I only add links that I use often, otherwise you get a list as above and cannot remember where the hell anything is!!!
