I cannot thank you enough.

Sincere regards, Aashish

This is an absolutely wonderful piece of work!
Nousha says: February 12, 2013 at 5:28 pm
Thank you very much for this wonderful website.
My daughter even though quite smart was struggling in her double and triple digit subtractions and the teacher just told her about it. I guess it is because of lack of practice at home as all other kids nowadays. My problem was not knowing exactly the things they took at school. So with this I really thank you for giving us something to help with.
Will keep you posted on the progress.
Louisa says: September 13, 2013 at 6:49 pm
Absolutely amazing thank you so much for making this available to all of us.

Thank you so much for this wealth of information.
Although these resources were developed with the Australian learner in mind, I am confident it will benefit users all over the world.
These are core concepts that are all in one place for all to use! Brilliant!
Please inform me when you have an update to your resources.

Dear Ron and Jacqueline,
You guys have done a great job in preparing the work sheets for our children.
I have been looking for this kind of information for a long time ever since my boys were in the elementary school. Sadly they are now in High school and Uni.
However my daughter will be very happy to study and enjoy these lessons.
Never too late. 🙂
My deepest appreciation to your kind and great work.
Colleen York says: May 6, 2012 at 7:32 am
The purpose of critical thinking for today’s learners is to have them problem-solve. For too long we, as educators, have been presenting facts and often our own opinions and views on topics. Our students have lost this very art of problem-solving, critically thinking about different views to a topic and also how to research to be able to present their own informed view. It is the difficult questions which we need to encourage our leaders of the future to ponder, to discuss, to argue and to persuade. ‘Creative and Original Thinking’ is a valuable section which will help our students meet 21st century outcomes.
Peter Fedder says: February 13, 2012 at 7:53 am
These resources are great. Some of the most practical and useful I have had sent to me for quite some time. All were useful not just ‘one out of the bunch’. Thanks again.
Sue MacGibbon says: February 14, 2012 at 7:15 am
Great looking resources and even better being able to download/ share these with other teachers.
Thanks, keep up the good work.

Wayne Phillips says: February 10, 2013 at 3:46 pm
Teacher’s Quiz 1. Edmund Barton was the 1st PM of Australia. Deakin was 2nd.
australianteacher says: February 10, 2013 at 4:20 pm
Thanks Wayne…well spotted.
Originally, the question asked for Australia’s 1st PM but we decided to make it harder. And, of course, we neglected to change the answer!
All fixed now.
All the best,
Ron and Jacqueline
Steve Thornton says: August 7, 2012 at 3:39 pm
There are some nice activities here. Thanks.
The activity about even numbers being the sum of two odd primes is called Goldbach’s conjecture, and is a famous unproved conjecture in mathematics. This is a really nice example that shows mathematics as a living subject, with problems for which we don’t yet have an answer. Researching some of the historical aspects of primes and Goldbach’s conjecture is a great cross-curriculum activity. Also, if Goldbach’s conjecture for even numbers happens to be true, the result about odd numbers greater than 7 being the sum of 3 odd primes follows logically. Why? This is a good exercise in logical reasoning for children.
australianteacher says: August 7, 2012 at 6:57 pm
Thanks for your kind words and your very interesting contribution Steve.
Wiki tells us, “Since if every even number greater than 4 is the sum of two odd primes, merely adding 3 to each even number greater than 4 will produce the odd numbers greater than 7.”
You’re right…this would indeed be a great exercise for not-too-young maths students.
Many thanks again.
Ron and Jacqueline
australianteacher says: September 12, 2012 at 1:43 pm
Hi again Steve,
You may have seen this already…
All the best,
PS: I know it’s not the same conjecture you discussed in your comment above.
Dev says: November 3, 2012 at 8:55 pm
The study mat for children is great!!
I am from India and my six-year-old is bright in maths (usually Indians are great at mathematics (although not much in research part). I hope this material helps my kid to understand the nuances of maths in order to delve deep into it.
Thanks and all the best,

Anyway it’s now fixed.
Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know.

Cathy says: July 21, 2013 at 8:30 pm
Had the pleasure of using your activities.
How wonderful to have local creators (I think I knew you when I was a kid in the late 80’s 90’s around Mullaloo WA)
Jodie says: September 13, 2012 at 9:38 pm
As a new home schooling mum, I was glad to find these quizzes.
I plan on asking my children 2 age appropriate quiz questions daily.
Gerry Mathieson says: February 13, 2012 at 1:50 pm
Do you have some good resources for teaching Preschool children about Environmental Sustainability? Thanks.
australianteacher says: February 13, 2012 at 2:05 pm
We presently have nothing in our resource bank on this.
You could see what’s available via Google or another Search Engine.

Hi Ron and Jacqueline,
I manage Red Cross volunteers who assist children from refugee background with homework tutoring on a one to one basis. I was wondering if our volunteer home work tutors are able to download your worksheets to use with the children?
Your worksheets would be really beneficial for our clients.
Please let me know if there are any requirements regarding copyright laws. Thank you.
Laura says: August 24, 2015 at 8.22am
hello 🙂 I am homeschooling my year 4 daughter and would love to purchase copies of your worksheets for year 3 to 4 students. My printer and copier are unfortunatley out of action at the moment so is there a way I can pay a fee for the worksheets? Many thanks.
Mandy says: September 7, 2015 at 12.57pm
Hi. I have downloaded quite a few of your lesson books and my using them to home school my 13 year old daughter who has sever learning issues. We are loving the lessons. Maths is her favourite with all the fun and games included.
Thank you so much.
Julianne says: October 11, 2015 at 7.24am
I am very interested in the book I found on the internet called 21 Best Loved Aussie Poems, Ballads and Songs.
I am hoping to convince our primary school to incorporate Australian poems and history into our school concert next year as I am tired of the modern songs they make the kids dress and dance to year after year after year.
This looks like an amazing collection and descriptions and educational descriptions also! Is it possible to purchase a copy?
Susan Morgan says: December 15, 2015 at 7.55am
amazing resources !!! I work as an EA in an Education Support setting and also support worker outside school hours – your worksheets and programs will be of so much benefit to the families I support ! 🙂 Thank you so much – Merry Christmas and God bless x Susan

we have a rule; 2 or 3 worksheets before computer games or tv!
Tony says: February 25, 2016 at 6.37am
This is a fantastic resource. I work with adults who have intellectual disabilities and it is very hard to find resources that are suitable but not presented in a ‘babyish’ fashion. This is perfect.
Thanks, Tony Costa

Lucy says: April 5, 2016 at 09.08am
THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH… Everything I need for all 4 of my children from year 1 to Year 6 worksheets.
Better yet in booklet style (work book) rather than individual templates/worksheets.
I’ve spent half the day downloading, saving and printing individual worksheets for each child.
Australian Teacher you’re the best.
I use your worksheets as my daughters homework assignments.
I have seen an improvement in her reading and math skills.
Thanks once again….
Looking forward to new materials from you.
Thank you for taking the time to supply these worksheets and lessons. They are coming in very handy as we are also travelling Australia and I am home schooling my 6 year old daughter. She absolutely loves the quiz’s! We have finished them all and we are only in week 6 of schooling… I am going to have to make my own up now!!
Thanks again – this is a great resource!

Thank you for such a brilliant website. It is the best website that I have found for teaching my kids at home. I just love the clear, coherent way that you organise it all, but mostly it’s the content of the lesson ideas that is great.
Hope you will upload more workbooks for practice.
Zuly says: June 8, 2016 at 4.33am
Thank you for the material. May God repay your kindness.
Ngaire says: June 30, 2016 at 9.43am

Kylie says: July 3, 2016 at 4.40pm
I have spent hours searching for something like this!!! these sheets are fantastic. I will be starting home school with my 7 yr old next week and this is just what we needed. great work! Will you be updating and adding sheets for older children as i would like to follow you for next year when he is in grade 3.
Janine says: July 4, 2016 at 7.14pm
Thank you for your website! We have just pulled our 15 year old daughter (who has Autism, Intellectual Delay and ADHD) out of a Special School to Homeschool her. These worksheets and activities and ideas are perfect as she is at varying levels with her learning (eg. Prep for Reading Comprehension and Handwriting, Year 1 Maths, Year 2 English etc) and I can see we will be able to utilise these well with her!
Thank you for sharing your skills!!
Sharon says: July 16, 2016 at 3.44pm
I am a new teacher in Australia from New Zealand.
I have found here that it is very difficult to find free resources to photo copy and pass on to kids.
I just wanted to write to say thank you so much for your resources and the fact they are free and usable in class to raise awareness of literacy and numeracy especially.
Well done and many many thanks,
Jean says: August 8, 2016 at 7.37pm
Thank you Ron and Jacqueline for the most informative website you’ve both painstakingly created. I am a casual relief teacher and this website is the best I have come across. Surely,I will now be prepared for those last minute urgent calls to schools.
Mary says: August 21, 2016 at 3.36pm
Thank you Ron and Jacqueline for generously sharing these resources that must have taken you hours to create. I’m a full time Year 1 teacher and have been putting together worthwhile work packs for one of my children who is currently in RCH in Melbourne. Your worksheets easily fit in with what we’re working on in class and will help to ensure that he doesn’t miss out.
Thanks a million,

I was chilled . My daughter loves them and keeps asking to do more. She loves animals activities on the site.
Thank you so much for all the hard work and effort in making these sheets.

These units of work are fantastic and my students would definitely enjoy them!
Terine says: October 30, 2017 at 6:09pm
Thank you for the wonderful free resources you have provided.
I have used your numeracy and literacy ideas. Your website is one of my favourites because I don’t have to think about numeracy conversions and Americanism – your content is localised.
Gayle says: November 5, 2017 at 4:41am
This is the best website I have discovered that is so helpful for casual teachers.
Keith says: November 5, 2017 at 5:04pm
Great work. Our local schools are giving less and less homework for the grand-kids. We get together each Tue-thu for 2-3 hours and they enjoy these type of work sheets. These sheets are creative and will keep them busy and educated during the end of term and school holidays. Their local school has noticed a change, lower to higher class positions, in them and their grades have improved. Thanks, Keith
