We’re incredibly proud of Pobble 365; we regularly hear how many teachers, parents and pupils around the world use it. As well as being recommended by the UK Department of Education, the site has recently been named in Waitrose’s 6 of the best websites to keep children happy!
If you didn’t already know, Pobble 365 offers a completely free, ready-made writing resource, 365 days a year!
What we also hear frequently, however, is that teachers didn’t know Pobble offers so much more than Pobble 365… If you’re already a Pobble 365 user, you’ll love what you can do on Pobble.com, it’s where the real magic happens!
Subscribing for a Pobble account allows you as a teacher to do lots more with Pobble 365 tasks. Here’s what you can do:
Once you’re in your Pobble account, you can discover heaps of fresh teaching inspiration by searching for a topic. You can also filter by age. Not only does this allow you to search for exactly which Pobble 365 image will suit your lesson, but in ‘Discover Pobble’ you’ll also have access to high quality, ready-made, age-specific lessons on a variety of topics. We add two new lessons every week! The age-specific lessons provide a series of tasks including vocabulary, spellings, punctuation and grammar challenges as well as comprehension questions and a creative task. All of which help the children to write in a specific genre. A real time saver for busy teachers!
If the content you discover doesn’t quite fit your pupils’ needs, you have the power to edit the lessons easily. You can create your own copy and chop and change it to your heart’s content. Ideal for differentiation! Just a reminder: this is not possible in Pobble 365, Pobble.com gives you much more control over your lessons!
The best bit about the content within Pobble, whether it’s one of our ready-made lessons or one you’ve created yourself, is that it’s easily shareable with others. You have the option to present to pupils, either in a class or in a live online lesson OR copy the link to share with fellow teachers or for parents and pupils at home to easily access! They don’t even need to register to access this!
Once you have become familiar with using Pobble lessons and maybe editing the content, you may want to try building your own lesson. Our intuitive and easy to use lesson builder tool, allows teachers to create their own lessons within Pobble. These are made using our unique, ready-made lesson slides. The slides allow you to add text, images, resources, websites, success criteria and notes.
