Twinkl: home of unique learning resources.

In the past week,I have been engaged in reading sessions with some children at my daughter's school for about half an hour every afternoon as part of the build up to World book day. It is of course on a voluntary basis but I was happy to be a part of the sessions because of the initiative behind it. Myself and a handful of other parents who had volunteered to be a part of the exercise had been teamed up with teachers in each class within the school who arranged for us to listen to the children read.

Myself and the other parents had a bit of briefing session with the teachers in charge to tell us the aim behind the reading session,what they hoped to achieve out of it and of course what was expected of us  in the process,we were also provided with very helpful and easy to understand learning resources from Twinkl to guide us through the process. Some of these resources included Guided Reading question cards which provided ideas of  key questions to ask as it relates to the book each child read.

There was also the Tricky word sound mat which looked something like this,

It was a pleasant and eye opening experience. It definitely was an opportunity for me to learn lots of useful stuff which I could put to practical use during reading times with my four year old and honestly the learning resources absolutely helped me to confidently engage more with the kids during the reading sessions. I know now for future reference that being a teacher isn't a walk in the park!



So it was a pleasant surprise for me when the opportunity to talk about the Twinkl resource on the blog arose.

I am absolutely excited to have been offered the opportunity to access the brilliant world of near endless learning and educational resources via a platinum subscription.
