Welcome To The Relief Teacher Backup Pack!

We are here to help make your day a little easier and more productive with ready-to-go writing lessons.

Background: The resources in this Relief Teacher Backup Pack are a small selection from the Littlescribe Mini-Writing Festival Program.  Students will be writing with authors via live and on-demand workshops and completing writing activities, all designed to build literacy skills in 2022. Students will draft, write, draw, edit, collaborate and share their work.

The Purpose of the Backup Pack?

  • This standby pack has been created for days when a teacher is away. 
  • It provides a limited mix of resources from the Mini-Writing Festival Program to help create continuity of learning for students and support educators juggling disrupted timetables.
  • There are ready-to-go writing resources for ages 5 to 14+.
