Has a wonderful maths printables page with dozens of fully customisable worksheets covering money, time, place value, etc. An equally useful literacy printables section with handwriting, sheets, letter fans, certificates, word search makers, and much more.
Many online (and downloadable) activities on the downloads page including decimal shopping (euros, pounds or dollars), interactive clock, etc.
A fantastic site, created by Widget Software, where symbol readers can read up to date news reports and articles (e.g. Australian floods, “King’s Speech review, Valentine’s Day information, troubles in Tunisia, seasonal recipes).
There are online stories and reviews including some for older readers (try the “Shopping in Tesco” story – which also covers important personal safety issues).
A collaboration between Widgit and Warwickshire Education Authority. There are some wonderful free download packs (you will need Widgit Writing with Symbols) aimed at schoolchildren but several are suitable preEntry – E1.
Use this amazing program in pre-Entry / Entry 1 literacy. Allows creation of both printed materials and interactive ‘environments’. I have used it to create sample thank you letters and for work on describing objects and asking questions.
