Help grow TES Australia - prize winners

Thank you to everyone who took part by sharing their resources - the competition is now closed. These contributors have each won a $100 iTunes voucher as a reward for helping to grow TES Australia.

Fortnight 1:

Primary historical skills

Kelly88 for sharing Comparing past and present
"This is the first time that I have shared any resources, and I was really happy to see TES Australia starting up and wanted to support that. I will probably spend the iTunes voucher on different songs about times tables and different educational songs and videos for my class, plus some music for me!"





Whole school

Daniel Chapman for sharing Treasure Hunter - Behaviour/Reward system Gr2-6
"I am glad that my resources have been so well received by the teaching community. I enjoy discovering great resources that other teachers have made and find it only fair that I respond by sharing too. My resources are inspired by the need to be engaging and relevant to students."





General capabilities

Sharon R for sharing Text Discussion Cards
"What I love about sharing on TES Australia is that it is so easy to do! As educators, we are constantly busy and incredibly time poor. If by sharing your resource you save one colleague having to invent it for themselves, then you have made a difference. The more that we share, the more time we can save each other in the long run."





Fortnight 2:


Secondary Indonesian

ibuDanielleH for sharing Viewing Text Deconstruction
"This resource was inspired by a desire to increase the amount of formal "viewing" / video literacy work in my Indonesian language classes. These days it is so easy to find videos (whether short silent films or texts in the target language) and they are awesome for engaging students and promoting conversation."

marrinerk for sharing Night by Elie Wiesel
"While winning an iTunes voucher is certainly a welcome surprise, knowing that I have supported other teachers is also rewarding. Teachers are great team players and TES Australia offers us the chance to participate in professional conversations with our colleagues in other states and territories of Australia, as well as internationally."





Cross-curriculum

bekbooth05 for sharing The Tiny Seed
"While winning an iTunes voucher is certainly a welcome surprise, knowing that I have supported other teachers is also rewarding. Teachers are great team players and TES Australia offers us the chance to participate in professional conversations with our colleagues in other states and territories of Australia, as well as internationally."

Whole school

kmhen for sharing Class assessment overview
"The inspiration behind my resources is keep it simple and clear, especially when it comes to assessment. I also like making things adaptable so it will easily fit in from one level or activity to another."





Cross curriculum

a_heydon for sharing Heating up
"I told my students and they were thrilled for me – apparently they had really enjoyed the unit of work! I have found much of great use that has been uploaded by others, and I figured it was time to start paying back."





General capabilities

kgort for sharing Measurement I Can Do
"I am very surprised to have won and grateful for the support. I hope by sharing resources to save time for other teachers and develop my own skills so that quality resources can be provided to pupils."







Fortnight 4:


General capabilities

CapitanTypo for sharing Stage 4 Differentiated Wide Reading Assessment
"I have been trying to create a differentiated, student directed task that allows students to explore their own interests in fiction, but still has a centralised marking scheme for teachers to use in assessing student work. TES Australia is the best, most accessible platform in Australia for teachers to share their resources with each other."





Cross curriculum

emmaguy for sharing Haiku, Tankas and Haiga
"Can you imagine how much easier your prep time would be if EVERYONE shared their resources? Even if what you upload is not quite right for someone else, they can adapt it to what they need and save themselves lots of time and effort. I'm excited to win, and can't wait to use the voucher to feed my digital comic book addiction."





Primary geography

KPolkinghorne for sharing Australian State and Territory Emblems
"Being a retired secondary geography and history teacher, TES Australia is a great way to continue using my skills and resources. I retired before the internet was really used very much and am 'allergic to computers' so if I can do it, anyone can!"







Fortnight 5:


Whole school

pcoutas for sharing THINK poster: Think before you post (cyber safety)
"I see the Australian Curriculum as inspiration for new resource development. It forces us to re-visit, revise and re-invent our current curricula. I look forward to seeing other teachers' efforts on TES Australia as our curriculum matures."





General capabilities

gcmem for sharing Australia Between the Wars – Program and unit of work
"I am so flattered that other educators think that my lesson material is useful. This workbook format helps to keep students on task and allows less focussed students to be given goals for each lesson and the opportunity to work with the teacher, while more focussed students can forge ahead at their own pace."





Primary science

Chrissybswps for sharing Water Quiz
"This was the first resource I have shared on TES Australia! I have found and used so many great resources since joining earlier this year from other teachers and really feel like it's a great community to share with."







Fortnight 6:

Claire Stanner for sharing Carbon Cycle Game
"It is nice to be acknowledged for sharing materials and resources. Our school have just purchased an iPad so I will likely spend some of the voucher on science apps to use in my classes."


debbiewand for sharing Measurement Review
"I am very grateful. I spend a lot of time preparing work so it is nice for it to be acknowledged."
