You're just a click away from tapping into a wealth of on-demand teaching advice, resources and materials that Save You Time!

Do any of these sound familiar to you?


You feel overwhelmed by the pressures of teaching?…

You spend many hours trying to come up with new activities and ways to engage the children you teach?…
Your school or education authority have constantly increasing expectations from you as a teacher?…

You struggle to balance teaching with a busy family and/or social life?…

You find yourself hoping every year that it will get easier or there will be less to do?…

Don't aren't alone!

I have been there both as a new and experienced teacher. Trying to juggle learning my new job, managing a classroom, keeping up with the hours of extra work required to provide the best materials and resources for my class….It can be tricky and that’s without balancing teaching with a busy family and/or social life.

Professional development, assessments, meetings, after school commitments. The list never seems to end. If you are anything like me you probably spend a fair bit of time wondering whether the work you put in is even making a difference? It can be very draining.

I know so many teachers, who just like you, are struggling to balance quality and excellence in teaching with time management and the demands of the system.

Get more time this year…and every year you teach

My goal at Top Notch Teaching is to make teachers’ lives easier through resources, advice and learning programs that save time, inspire and motivate.

What do teachers need most? Time.

And I know how you can get more time this year and every year you continue to teach. Every minute you save in creating or searching for materials for your classroom and every resource you don’t have to create saves you time to become a better teacher, parent, partner and friend.

How much time do you spend creating worksheets, games, assessments, lesson plans … ? How much time do you spend googling and searching for what you need? Imagine having one spot to go and find amazing resources.

About Top Notch Teaching

Hi, I’m Mel! I am the founder of Top Notch Teaching and I’m a primary school teacher and literacy specialist.

I started Top Notch Teaching in 2012 because I knew so many teachers who were struggling to achieve their teaching goals.

I have a particular interest in helping struggling readers and providing high-quality, evidence-based literacy instruction to help kids flourish.

Real teachers loving Top Notch Teaching products

The Top Notch Teaching phonics packs are such a time-saver! My students, and their families, love the easy-to-follow worksheets and variety of games which allow them to successfully practice their reading and spelling at home.

I’ve used a number of Melinda’s teaching resources with several of my tutoring kids over the past few months. I love the fact her resources are so engaging for kids to use! Closely aligned with modern research into the ‘Science of Reading,’ Melinda’s games help children learn the sound/s for each letter (or group of letters) and reinforce well-known phonics rules, thus helping the child to decode words more easily and become more confident and fluent in their reading. I would highly recommend Melinda’s games and worksheets for any teacher or parent who’s looking for easy-to-use, well thought out resources that follow a ‘synthetic phonics’ approach!
Mim Blake, South Australia

My favourite resource and that of my students are the Cootie Catchers. They are fun and exciting to use. They help children to develop their phonic skills without them being aware of it and they love the mystery of opening each layer. I find them a good reward at the end of a fruitful lesson. Way to go Melinda!!

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the resources in the Members Club be relevant to the age-group and subjects that I teach?

The Members Club is a library of quality, time-saving teaching resources aimed at elementary students from K-5. Each month as a member you will also receive 5 or more new teaching resources related to either Classroom Management, Self Care, Health & PE, Literacy, Math and Science.

Will I be able to use the Members Club resources to differentiate for the varying abilities of my students?

Yes, as a teacher myself I understand how important it is to provide engaging resources for students with varying ability. That’s why, when I develop my teaching resources and materials I provide instructions on how the games, exercises and worksheets can be tailored to meet different needs.

Why should I become a Member today instead of waiting?

You’re ready to get some time back! If you really want to ease the burden of teacher prep then you need somewhere to get great quality, done for you resources, along with advice and insights to make your life easier. 

Will my membership cost continue to increase over time?

Great news! The price you pay when you join is the price you will pay for the lifetime of your (continuous) membership.

What if I join but decide later it’s not for me?

I’m sure you will love the Members Club, if however, you join and decide the membership isn’t for you then, of course, you can cancel your membership at any time. Don’t worry, there’ll be no hard feelings and no questions asked. 

I already purchase Top Notch Teaching products. How does the Members Club differ?

First let me say, that’s great and thanks for your custom. As a member, you’ll receive access to my full range of products for a small monthly fee. That’s over $650 (USD) of value just on the day you sign up. Each month, as a member, you will also receive 5+ new teaching products (including math and literacy games not available elsewhere), teaching advice and special offers from my partners.

Is all of the content available straight away or is it drip fed?

It’s a bit of both actually! You get access to over $650 USD worth of content straight away! And the best part is you also get fresh and new content every month you continue to be a member. 

Do I receive anything in the mail when I join?

No, the Top Notch Teaching Members Club is entirely online.

What happens if I decide to cancel my membership?

Obviously I would love it if all my members stuck around forever. But I know that isn’t always going to happen. So, if you do decide to cancel (I’ll be very sad) you’ll be able to do so with just 2 clicks of a mouse.

Can I access content from the Members Club after I cancel?

No. Your membership entitles you to enter the members area and access the content there released prior and during the duration of your membership. If you cancel or do not renew your membership you will no longer be able to access content from within the Members Club.

What support is available to me to use the membership products?

As a Member you are welcome to email me at any time –  I also have a teaching community on Facebook that I’d love you to join. Just search for Top Notch Teaching Community.

Can I upgrade to an annual membership later?

You sure can! You can upgrade to an annual membership any time by getting in touch with me. Email me at
