5 Great Twinkl Resources for Infant Teachers

Hi everyone,

Here are 5 of the most frequently used Twinkl Resources in my classroom:

1. Aistear Group Display Posters

If you follow the Aistear Framework or even just incorporate play based learning into your day, these are very handy for your rota display.

Aistear Group Display Posters - groups, signs, display, role play, activities, areas, classroom, class, messy, independent, fun, games,

2. Editable Placemats

I've been using these religiously for the past three years. They're brilliant because they're editable, they have the alphabet, keywords, number-lines and the days of the week. Therefore the kids are referencing to them throughout the day.

Keywords Placemats Editable - foundation stage keywords, key stage 1 key words, high frequency words, placemat, desk mat

3. Phoneme Photo Cards

These CVC Word Phoneme Photo Cards are a great resource, especially for when the little ones begin sounding out their spelling. I always begin using these after Christmas with Junior Infants, they're great for one-to-one work, pair work or even early finishers at the busy station. Mine are laminated and the children either write on them with whiteboard markers or use magnetic letters to build the words.

4. I Spy - Oral Language Activities

There are lots of different 'I Spy' resources on Twinkl but this is the one I use the most. My class has a high percentage of EAL pupils so we need a lot of Oral Language resources and 'I spy' activities like these are great. Printed or shown on the IWB there's so much scope for learning and language. They also have several 'as Gaeilge' too.

5. Name 5 Things

Again, another resource which supports lots of lovely thinking, conversation and language work. These Name 5 Things cards are nice for one-to-one work, group work or even whole class challenges. Sometimes little challenges like these are a nice alternative form of homework too.

If you've been following me for a while you'll know well that I've been using Twinkl for years and it's  generally my go-to for quick, ready made, printable resources. Do you have any Twinkl resources that you particularly love? Be sure to share!
