    This may have been done before, but I think we should make a list of websites where you can find great information (worksheets, books, online learning, etc). These can be aimed at different levels and grades, but please mention the grade/level when you post it.
    I will add to this because I don't have time right now to put them all down. Please add what is included on the website, age bracket, free or paid. This could be helpful. I use so many great websites that have helped me over the years.


    Studyladder, online english literacy & mathematics. Kids activity games, worksheets and lesson plans.
    This is a great website and you can login as a teacher or student. Online learning about a variety of subjects including Math, English, ICT, etc. You can use this on a smartboard as a review or introducing a phonics or grammar point. Use the search bar to search for grade and subject. You can create a login and use it for free.

    Education.com | #1 Educational Site for Pre-K through 5
    This site is excellent in that it was made by teachers for teachers. You have lesson plans, worksheets, books, etc on a variety of subjects including Math, English. You can download some worksheets for free, but you can also join with different levels. I am a pro member and I have access to unlimited worksheets, lesson plans, etc.
    This is on their website. Unlimited access to 15,000+ worksheets, games, workbooks, and more. You can also create custom worksheets with the Worksheet Generator.
    Grades are from preschool to High School.


    Primary Resources - KS2, KS1, Early Years (EYFS) KS3, KS4
    This is a paid site, but it isn't much money for what you get. From preschool to high school. They have all subjects and lots of information. They have a section for ESL and SEN. This site has so much information with powerpoints, worksheets, posters for your classroom, etc.


    BusyTeacher: Free Printable Worksheets For Busy English Teachers
    A great ESL site with worksheets, posters, books, flashcards and articles. You can search for anything related to ESL and you can find it. Easily print worksheets out. Free.

    DLTK's Educational Activities for Children
    More of a crafts website with some free printables, but for full access you need to pay. They have great worksheets, games, books, crafts, related to different themes/holidays. Online games and printable games. Just a wealth of good stuff for mostly young school age children.

    Feel free to add your own. I'll add more soon.

    A great one to study online. Considering the different levels and the possibility to copy and paste all assignments make it to a great website. Grammar, reading, writing and listening all in one.

    Like a One Stop Servince Service... ( seen in Sisaket)

    Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) - English levels

    Gosh, I almost forgot my favorite Pirate Bay website where you'll find all sorts of teaching material. Books in PDF format you can easily change into MS Office Word.

    Even if you're not a member. I'm not sure if it's really true that some members here are running illegal operating systems from mentioned websites, but I don't think so. Just the usual gossip..

    FreeEverything.com

    P.S. You can buy this website which I didn't know when making a joke.

    Hey you....( The Thai approach.:confused..lol)

    I made a list and put all the links from your thread together that makes it a little bit easier to search for particular certain stuff. It's in MS Office Word Format, so easy to copy and paste.

    I haven't had time to look around and truly hope that this coming weekend will allow me to do so.

    We're more than one teacher short, but they obviously don't care. "Please help the school" and make ten more hours a week for free? I mean, we don't need more money for alcohol, fags, and other stuff that only makes you sick. And Mia Noi's aren't for us, or? Hmmmm....

    And you don't have to drive your pick up, take a damn bicycle, it's only 25 km away and do the dad thingy.

    That's how they're trying to get you. And they're out there to get you. Don't you hear the imaginary footsteps?

    I am now tutoring English four days a week after school. The boy is new to English and 5 years old. I'm about to go print some of these. Thought I'd share.

    Free printable flashcards. This site also has tons of other great resources.
