Teach online account for free? Are you starting out as an online primary school teacher? Has your school just closed down due to the Coronavirus crisis? I have spent the last few weeks finding the best alternatives you can try with your class. Naturally, all the resources I will be listing as free.
What online teaching platform do I use?
I highly recommend using Zoom as your teach online account. You first download the Zoom software from here – https://zoom.us/download – and open it from there as it is much, much easier to use than the browser version.
I then set up a recurring meeting as then I can send this list out to parents and they can use it again and again, I also make a contact list of students, which is also much easier when it comes to inviting the students to each lesson.

Are you looking for a more Teach Online Account?
I am also a big fan of Twinkl teaching resources. I was already an ultimate user before the Coronavirus crisis as they have a comprehensive amount of teaching resources for all ages, in a wide range of different languages. You can click here to get the FREE TWINKL voucher code, straight from the Twinkl website.
I am particularly impressed that they offer a daily set of lessons across the school for all the different ages of children. They have lessons for children from the age of 3 to 16. These lessons and resources can provide you with a full days worth of lessons. They also cover all the other subjects such as sport and topic work.
Did you know there is a free Scolastic Teach Online Account?
This is my third and final addition to my free teach online account ideas. There is the wonderful free Scolastic Learn at home site – which has a huge number of different teaching and learning ideas for you to try with your child.
I use a mix of different teaching resources, including of course free Big Maths resources. I have found that keeping it simple is the answer. The school set up new email accounts with Google drives attached to make sharing the information with the parents. Likewise, I also only have only one resource open at a time to keep the speed of the computer up and the internet traffic down.
