Free literacy resources
If you are looking for free literacy resources then you have come to the right place. With thousands of ready-made resources to develop knowledge and literacy that can be accessed for free, What2Learn is an essential tool for schools and teachers looking to raise the literacy, engagement and academic performance of their students.
The What2Learn system is designed to provide a fun and effective way to raise literacy right across the curriculum. This is something that schools will be expected to demonstrate good provision for under the new Ofsted framework. Interactive learning games provided within the system include hangman-style games, anagrams, wordsearches, quizzes and more. All student attainment in the system is automatically calculated and recorded to enable teachers to monitor progress. Best of all, you can quickly and easily add your own questions and answers to the games using our game generator to ensure your students are playing games specific to what you are teaching them.
The images below give an indication of the kind of fun literacy activities What2Learn provides. These are much more engaging and effective for students than traditional (/boring) printable worksheets. Think of the financial savings in terms of reprographics costs too!
Check out our post ‘100 learning games for English‘ to get a flavour of what some of the literacy activities are like.
