Essential Resources believes in learning. We help teachers teach and students learn.
Our resources are strongly grounded in what works in the classroom, giving teachers lesson plans, tools and strategies they need to make a difference. They support students’ learning through every stage of their schooling, ensuring students excel and can apply their learning to numerous meaningful contexts.

It covers specific texts, picture books and includes generic templates for any text, along with student-centred goal-setting sheets.
After 10 years of teaching, Megan Roulston still loves the thrill of being at the front of the classroom each day. She believes that as teachers, we all need to help and support each other no matter where we live. She started building resources from the materials and ideas she uses every day in the classroom.
