Free Teaching Resources

BERLIN, GERMANY - DECEMBER 28:  A participant ...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeFree Technology For Teachers is an amazing website that is updated so frequently, it is often hard to keep on top of all the great, free resources they highlight.

Here are just a few of the tools you will find at this amazing site. Click on the links to read more about each one.

Get More out of PDFs

PDF to Word – This online tool will convert PDF documents to a file that you can then edit on MS Word.

Page Flip-Flap – This resource helps you turn your multiple page PDF files into an online book with page turning effects.

Convert Articles to PDFs – This is a great tool for bookmarking and saving those useful articles you happen to come across when you simply don’t have the time to read them. They get emailed to you, so you can review them at your convenience.

Primary Education

Make Online Flashcards – These would be great for basic review, sight word lists, vocabulary, etc.

Kids Should See This – This blog features short online videos that are both educational and entertaining. There are plenty of great ways to use short videos in the classroom.


Children’s Books Forever – Free ebooks for kids. These are great for using in your guided reading program and could be projected onto your Smartboard.

Lesson Plans for Children’s Books – A good place to look before you go to the library to choose reading material for your class.


Math Pickle – Use videos to teach math concepts. It also includes links to PowerPoint presentations and worksheets.

And much, much more.

I haven’t had the chance to incorporate all of these free tools into my instruction. I am writing this post, in part, as a personal note to self, and to show you how great a resource actually is.
