I always get asked about where I get certain resources from so I’ve decided to make a page that will help my fellow NQT’s easily find the most enquired about resources from ”How To Teach My Child”.

Jolly Phonics Teaching Books

Now, the easiest way I taught phonics initially without a training program was with the Jolly Phonics teachers book! It is a great investment! The book contains detailed daily lessons and detailed activities that go alongside their Jolly phonics Pupil books series. I have recommended this to a few friends and this is what they used to teach their children to read with very good results! It’s an amazing process of watching how your child develops from their first letter to their last! Click Here

Phonics Flash Cards

These flashcards are an excellent tool for recapping letters. When teaching your child to read, it is always important to continuously practice letters. These flashcards are a quick and easy resource accompanied by a rhyme to help children memorise letters. These cards are fantastic as they also use rhymes to teach children how to write the letters. It’s a great tool for parents to help their children learn to read and write. Click Here

Early Reading Book Collection Set

Many parents have asked about the best book sets for teaching your child to read. Written by the author of ”The Gruffalo” these books include funny and fun rhymes that support children’s love for reading. The book series caters to your child’s reading ability by being divided into sets according to letters your child has learned to read. Click Here

Jolly Phonics Reading Cards

Knowing the correct words to teach your child to when they are learning to read can be difficult. However, these Jolly phonics cards help eliminate that issue by dividing the cards into sets. For example; If your child has learned the letters ”s, a,t” there will be a set of cards with words only containing those letters. Using flashcards is a good method for keeping track of the words your child can read and letters they have learned. Click Here

If you are interested in the Jolly Phonics reading scheme; I have a review of their phonics curriculum here.

Organising Resources

One trick I use to organise resources is portion plates. These help to categorise activities. A lot of you have enjoyed this format of presenting activities and have asked where I get them from so I’ve decided to share it with you! I’ve recommended some round portion plates which, work just as well! Click Here

Arabic Books for teaching

Gateway To Arabic books have always been the go to book I would recommend for learning Arabic after the Madinah University Arabic book. The pictures, activities and worksheet makes the book enjoyable to work with and easy to memorise words as a child. You can purchase it from here.

Movable Alphabet

Movable alphabet is my go to for children who aren’t very keen on writing or who have the basic phonics skills but don’t know how to hold a pencil. Its very common! Children really enjoy the freedom of the movable alphabet. Its a resource that can be used over an over again. Click here to purchase from amazon.


Numicons support mathematics in the most diverse and easiest way to break down difficult mathematical equations. Whenever a child does not understand a maths problem, I run to Numicons. The only catch is you need to know how to use it! However, there are a plethora of YouTube videos for direction and Numisons can be used from Nursery to Year 6! I love them and wouldn’t trade them for the world. To buy from Amazon click here.

Magnetic Tiles (Connetixs)

Magnetic tiles are an amazing way to help teach children how 2D shapes make up 3D shapes. For example; six squares make a cube. Magnetic tiles are also great for learning, counting, multiplications and use them to create letters or numbers. They have available some free learning resources.
