What are Classroom Ideas?
Classroom Ideas are made accessible to educators with a Professional or School Subscription, providing practical discussion questions and activity ideas for further use of our stories in the Primary Classroom. Our Classroom Ideas are aligned with the content descriptions across the learning areas of English, Maths, Humanities, Science, Health and Physical Education, The Arts and Technologies, in addition to relevant General Capabilities and Cross-Curriculum Priorities.
Classroom Ideas are based on the unique themes, story structures and language features of each story, and are designed to provide a flexible and easily accessible resource that can be adapted to suit each educator’s needs, whether as stand-alone activities or as a sequence of tasks. We encourage educators to use their discretion in selecting activities that are relevant and appropriate for the level of their students, which can be easily simplified or extended to meet the needs of students at various year levels.
Classroom Ideas are provided as an interactive PDF, allowing us to conveniently link to relevant stories and additional resources. They can also be downloaded and printed for convenience.
