Maryam Taheri March 31, 2021 · 4 min read

Teaching is one of the most difficult and rewarding professions. You get to have a hand in the development of future generations, but you’re also tasked with developing said generations into a group of responsible, creative and hardworking adults. No pressure. In order to make this wonderful job more possible, here are 10 handy resources for teachers that can make class time more productive and fun for both you and the student.

Icons

Cute, visual and flat, icons can help little learners better understand what’s required of the homework and actually enjoy the process because it feels more like fun. Though icons are usually found online on websites, adding them to projects in real life helps make both forums more relatable.

Tumblr Themes

If you’re a dedicated government worker assisting too many kids in a single classroom, creating a Tumblr site with homework instructions, advice, quizzes and question and answer pages can help alleviate concerns about giving each student enough personal attention. Plus, the shy ones may be more comfortable speaking to you online than in person.

Educational Infographics

Kids of all ages love infographics, and they’re a fantastic way to provide facts and information in an entertaining way. You can show your students facts from a particular area of study, or have them create infographics of their own for an assignment.

Exciting Typefaces

There are few fonts as boring as Times New Roman, the standard in classrooms everywhere. Allow your students a little freedom by offering them a few other styles that are still clean, classy and legible, but aren’t as traditional as TNR.
