Twinkl has been my go-to resource since we started home educating over three years ago. My first thought when starting to plan group time (IMHO Twinkl works best for groups) is “What does Twinkl have about this subject?” For almost whichever subject we’ve been looking at, Twinkl has had a teaching resource to go with it. PowerPoints, activities, worksheets, colouring pages, interactive resources… the list goes on. It is such a comprehensive set of resources, we’ve hardly scratched the surface during our home educating time.
There is a dedicated Home Education section on the site which is pretty thorough as it includes guidance on home educating, planning resources, curriculum overviews (if that’s the style of home education you’re following), as well as projects and lapbooks you can use and subject specific lessons and activities.
The down side to Twinkl is that there is so much on the site – sometimes it’s overwhelming! And, of course, you need to adapt the resources for your children.
In summary, Twinkl is probably my most-visited resource for when we’ve been looking at learning something in a group. It’s excellent for that.
