I love Scootle

As Maggie discussed in her recent blog post, Scootle is an online database packed to the brim with resources that link directly to the Australian Curriculum. The ability to search via learning area, year level, content descriptor and filter which content descriptors you wish to in/exclude.

I am currently tutoring a friend’s daughter. She is in grade 2 but has missed the year 1 math concepts and needs help catching up. I have been able to locate the concepts in the Australian Curriculum online, and by clicking on the Scootle link, am taken straight to resources designed specifically for the area I wish to work with.

I trialed these resources on Miss H last week and they were a huge hit. Withing 45 minutes we had cemented a number of grade 1 concepts and learned how to out these to use in her year 2 work. I am thrilled with the results, and would definitely recommend this site to others.
