iBoard – Fantastic IWB site for Juniors

iBoard contains hundreds of free-to-use, highly visual, interactive resources for lower primary school.  They are powerful teaching tools that can be used on any interactive whiteboard.  They are also simple enough for a child to use independently or with minimal support.

With its simple navigational structure on the left hand side, and thumbnails of each activity, the site will appeal to young students, and encourage them to explore on their own. 

Areas cover for Reception (our prep!), Year 1 and 2 include:

  • Numeracy
  • Literacy
  • New Literacy (two thumbs up for this section!!!)
  • Science
  • History
  • Geography
  • RE
  • ICT
  • Early Years

This site is a fantastic site to use in the lower year levels, but also great for use in special education and ESL (English as a Second Language) lessons.  If you are only just beginning to use your IWB, this type of site is fantastic to get you going – and seeing the real benefits of the valuable resource available to you and your students.
