Kizclub Homepage

Dear Colleagues

Maybe www.kizclub.com is a familiar website to most of you, but for the sake of those who never heard of this site, I will give a very brief overview.

Kizclub contains mostly Language Arts educational material that is suitable for Kinder to early Primary school age children. This website provides:

http://www.kizclub.com/activities.htm In this section one finds ready-to-print classroom resources, worksheets to work with the class and links to other sites. All these resources are found on the left hand side of the browser.

http://www.kizclub.com/phonicsactivities.htm  This section can be particularly useful to those teachers who use phonics in their classroom. There is a variety of printed material from games which one can print and use with the children to worksheet that consolidates the teaching of phonics.

Other sections in this website include:

Topics

This website holds a section dedicated to topics which are commonly used in the class. Covering each topic there are various worksheet which make learning fun and exciting to children. The topics that one finds in this page are: Animals, Body and Health, Colours, Community, Food and Nutrition, Holdays and Seasons, Myself, Opposites, Shapes and Time and Numbers.

Crafts

For those teachers who find a difficulty what to do during their craft lesson, this page provides useful printouts which one can easly use and relate to topics which are covered in the class.

Stories and Props

Here are many props related to children’s story books which one can use to compliment story time in class. This section also provides online stories to various topics which teachers normally cover in their classrooms. All these links are found on the left hand side of the page.

Nursery Rhymes

Under this section one finds a collection of famous nursery rhymes together with word cards, coloured or black and white cliparts.

Flashcards

From this section one can print ready-made flashcards both in colour or black and white.

Teaching Extras

I am sure that teachers will find this section very useful. This section contains cliparts categorised by topic which most teachers usually cover during the scholastic year.  The cliparts are both in colour or black and white which makes it easy for the children to colour them in.

I hope that teachers will find this review very useful and will make classroom life more enjoyable, interesting, colourful and lesson preparation more easier!!!

Learning Clip contains a collection of  Interactive Whiteboard Resources for teaching primary maths. These interactive activities cover a huge range of mathematical topics and concepts.  Each IWB activity is accompanied by a matching worksheet. Activities are grouped under each respective year and than subcatagorised under units. Although these units may not match maltese schemes of work, the topics covered by each year are very similar.

One has to register to use use this website. Although registration is free, not all activities are free of charge. Subscription is not expensive but if the teacher opt not to pay it is still worth using the free of charge activities.

The interactive activities found in this website are very colourful and easy to use. The thing that fascinated me most is the full screen mode facility, this makes the activity itself to spread out across the whole interactive whiteboard. Those teachers who do not have an Interactive Whiteboard in their school can always use their classroom computers as an alternative.

These activities can be used by the teacher as a starter/plenary activity or as a reinforcement for a particular topic.
