“As a new graduate Teacher I purchased many items to start out my casual teaching career, however, all I needed was my TFAD book!!!
Rather than lugging around binders and folders of photocopiable resources to different schools "just in case", I feel confident to go into school with only this book. This book has increased my confidence in accepting supply teaching days outside of my teaching specialty and also improved my own teaching practice especially making lessons more fun and games-based. This in turn has made for very successful supply days and positive feedback from schools and teachers about my teaching skills and the high engagement of the students, when usually students can be more disruptive and unsettled. This resource is a light-weight, all-encompassing companion for every successful supply teacher and I wouldn't be without it.
“A comprehensive book of practical ideas that can easily be applied in the classroom. There are some great tips that I’ll be putting into practice ASAP!”
The teacher for a day book is easy to use and covers all year levels and areas of learning and is my go-to whenever I am stuck! Thankyou! Thankyou! Thankyou!
“It is great. It explains exactly what to do when stuck and helps with all different scenarios.”
“Even if I walk into a subject outside of my specialisms and no lesson has been left I know I have something I can quickly pull out and keep the students engaged. It is cheap to purchase and very useful. I would definitely recommend it.”
This book has saved me on many occasions such as only finding out upon arrival which year I was teaching or being told the year I was teaching but was moved into another class 10 minutes before bell time!
“Highly recommended, definitely a great present for your new teacher friends. A huge help for myself and my 5-year-old. Lots of ideas and strategies.”
“Amazing resource to have! I’ve spent hundreds on resources that I lugged around in an actual TROLLEY (the pull kind) for my first few days, then down-graded to a tub that just caused me pain to carry.
“Kelly’s book is written by an expert in the industry and she has put in incredible effort to sharing, in an easy format, the techniques and resources Early Childhood Educators use in the classroom setting. I was inspired by the ideas but especially found it easy to read and learn from the layout of the book and the illustrations. I am looking forward to keeping this book handy and relying on it to fill the gaps in my teaching day as a homeschool mum of two young boys.”
I think this is going to be something I will use as a guide to help my teaching. As a newly graduated teacher, resources like these are so valuable.
TFAD has such brilliant no-prep ideas that I can show up with my usual handbag and be ready to go, and am now super flexible with all these great ideas in my head! It’s made me much more confident in my own teaching, as well, even if there is work left for the day.
This book has given me the confidence to return to supply teaching after having 3 years off on maternity leave. I love the new literacy and numeracy ideas, new games to add to my bank and the diary to keep track of my supply days. Plus the behaviour management techniques are new and the kids seem to really respond to them. It has given me fresh ideas to implement in the classroom and in comparison to other supply teaching resources, is very fairly priced; less than an hours pay!
I found this book easy to use and navigate, cutting down on time wasting during the day. The short sharp behaviour management strategies are great. The fact that they are relevant to a variety of age groups helps me to tailor my approach. The quick activities were also incredibly useful - sometimes plans haven't been left and this meant I could just move on with the day and keep the kids on track. Plus there are plenty of practical tips that required little to no resources because those are usually hard to access when doing supply. My lessons ran smoother, behaviour incidents were minimised and overall the children were more productive. We all enjoy our day!
The book is extremely beneficial, easy to read and straight forward. I had started creating my own activities before I received the book (it took days to construct) and I have only ever used your book. I have utilised many more strategies and activities that I otherwise would not have implemented. I carry the book to every contract and relief day as a back up if required. I would definitely recommend it to others.
