See more “light bulb moments” in your students without sacrificing your ENTIRE weekend!

For many of us, teaching has always been about the *light bulb moments*. Seeing our kids engaged and enjoying what they’re doing. Growing. Learning. Developing.

Getting a buzz when they finally connect to a new concept

The indescribable joy on their faces that shows, “Wow, I’ve got it!”.

And that infectious excitement that creates a snowball effect in everyone; for you and your students.

With a crowded curriculum, so much to cover, and ever-increasing paperwork, who has the time to create resources from scratch?

Creating activities that DON’T exclude any students at any learning level.

Organising unique resources that *all* students can be proud to display in the classroom or share online. 

And it’s so easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer number of online resources currently available (most of which exclude many New Zealand children, misunderstand our local culture and history, and lack te reo Māori.

Even with resources you find, each one needs to be: 

New Zealand Teachers Need Tried and Tested Resources By Local Teachers.

FUN AND LEARNING WITHOUT HAVING TO CREATE RESOURCES ALL.WEEKEND.LONG.

Kia ora!

Top Teaching Tasks has a simple beginning:.a teacher creating resources to use with my own children at home. As those resources were made available online we soon realised that in-depth, trustworthy, and creative resources specific to (and inclusive of) all our New Zealand students were desperately needed. 

We don’t create one page worksheets and call it a “resource”.
Our activities are thorough, comprehensive, and unique.

Teachers’ plates are overflowing with day-to-day teaching, extracurricular activities, and time with families. Real talk: Teachers simply don’t have time to research and create resources every single week. 

As the need for high-quality resources increased, Top Teaching Tasks has grown from a family-owned business to include several local teachers collaborating on fun learning collections for our classrooms. 

Our backgrounds are varied, but our mission is the same: to create relevant, interesting, curriculum-aligned activities on a wide range of topics and subjects for students from new entrants through to Year 8.

Our teachers depend on resources that they don’t need to spend days creating, hours scouring the internet, or having to check every page for accuracy.

There’s something to suit every level in your classroom. Available in print-out PDFs and online digital activities, so you have the freedom to teach in the way that suits you and your learners best.

That’s our team’s forever commitment to you! 

When students enjoy school, they're motivated, they show up, and participate. *That’s* when learning happens.

“The resources are fantastic, excite the students, and enable them to develop researching skills”

“My membership has exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be renewing next year. I have also recommended you and your resources to a number of other teachers at our school. Thank you so much for your resources, they are fantastic, excite the students, and enable them to develop researching skills and to embed knowledge. They have saved me time, allowing me to be able to focus on addressing the growing social/emotional needs of a number of students that I have had this year. And importantly to be able to claim back some family time on weekends.”

New Entrants to Year 8. Many of our Year 7 and 8 resources are also suitable for Year 9 and 10 classes.

No. The copyright on our resources means they are for single use only. We are a small, family-owned business, and wed really appreciate it if you could refer other teachers to our website. We have team memberships available that allow multiple teachers from a school to become members at a discounted rate.

Yes. We will create a custom membership plan for you based on the size of your school and the number of teachers that will be using the resources. Simply send us an email with your details and we can get the ball rolling.

No. Whether you’re a parent or caregiver homeschooling your children, or a tutor looking for extra activities, our resources are made for everyone.

We currently have two payment options: using Paypal or Stripe. Both have the option of securely entering your credit or debit card details. You also have the option of paying manually for a school/team membership via an invoice.

Once you are logged in as a member, head to the Resource section and find a resource you would like to download. Click the download button and the resource will download directly onto your device.

A ZIP file is a compressed folder containing multiple files. It allows you to transfer many files at once, and takes up less storage space than the files would if they were not compressed. It’s also an easy way for us to distribute many files together, like discounted bundles.

Opening a ZIP file using Microsoft Windows:

Right-click on the unopened ZIP folder.
Choose “Extract All” from the menu that opens.
Choose a destination. This is the place where you want to keep the unzipped files. You can choose “My Documents,” for example.
Click “Extract.”

You can also locate the file and extract it after downloading from Google Chrome by following these steps:

After downloading the file, locate it using the download bar at the bottom of the Google Chrome browser, and click to open the Extraction Tool.
Click on the button at the top of the page that says “Extract All.”
After extraction is complete, a new folder window will open containing the files inside the ZIP. If you see a folder named _MACOSX, you can delete or ignore it. Those files are created when the ZIP is made on a Mac, and are not used by Windows.

For further information, see the Microsoft help guide here.


    If your computer runs Mac OSX:

    Double-click the unopened ZIP — the file should extract automatically. If that doesn’t work, hold down the control key and click the ZIP file icon. Choose “Open With” and then select “Archive Utility.” The utility will extract the ZIP files, and you can find them in the same folder where you downloaded them.

    I’ve tried these instructions but I’m still having trouble opening a ZIP file

    For a simple solution that works on Windows and Mac OSX, we recommend extracting ZIP files online using one of these free websites:

    – wobzip.org
      – unzip-online.com


        For any other Zip file related issues, or for further assistance, please contact us.

        Make sure you’re using the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader – it’s free to download here 
        1. Open the PDF file with Adobe Acrobat Reader.
        2. Click ‘File’ then scroll down to ‘Print’.
        3. In the ‘Page Sizing & Handling’ section, select “Shrink Oversized Pages” if needed.
        4. Print the document – make sure to check the settings if you want colour print outs.

        No. All of our resources are PDF digital downloads for you to print out. 

        Great question! We value our fellow teachers’ input and we’ve worked directly with members in the past to create resources specific to their needs. If there’s a resource that you need and it’s not already provided, simply send us an email with your details and we can go from there.

        “This has saved me hours of planning!”

        “If you buy this membership you will not regret it. This has saved me hours of planning! I love that although I teach Year 7-8, I need differentiated resources for some students, and this makes that so easy. This started with my love for the school journal activities and now is the first palace I turn to when I need something! Heaven sent in lockdown too!
