When I began scribbling some simple sight words and tracing letters from the alphabet, I never thought it would lead to me sitting here writing an “About ” section of my own teaching resources website.

What began as a way for me to create pre-school activities for my precocious and excitable 4-year-old has morphed into a business where I can do what I am passionate about: create literacy, language, and social studies resources that save teachers time!


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

As teachers, our plates are overflowing with day-to-day teaching, extra curricular activities, and time with our own 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:

  • full time teachers working during the holidays, 
  • part time teachers,
  • retired teachers,
  • and even some who contribute while on maternity leave!

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! 

Fantastic products. Great service, super helpful. Really quick to reply to any queries.

I love this resource! It has saved me hours of extra planning time with follow up tasks. I love the range of New Zealand resources we can use, especially with Aotearoa New Zealand histories curriculum coming in next year. The kids love doing them too 🙂
