Seomra Ranga recently reached another milestone in its development when the number of visitors to the site passed the 200,000 mark. This figure is even more remarkable considering the fact that the 100,000 mark was only passed towards the end of November 2008, meaning that another 100,000 have visited the site during the past three months.
Online since September 2007, Seomra Ranga has continued to develop and offer more and more free classroom resources for the primary school teacher. Developments during the past year include the range of new colourful posters across many curricular areas and the development of the “Christmas @ Seomra Ranga” website, both of which have attracted many visitors. The seasonal aspects of the site also attract many visitors depending on the time of the year.
I’ve had requests from some teachers to create specific resources for the classroom, and suggestions like this are always welcome. If you have a suggestion for a resource or a general suggestion for material that you think should be included on the site, please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll do my best to oblige. Of course, I’m always appealing for new material that has been created by other teachers for the site. I’ve had donations of some really good and practical resources recently (the Naomh Pádraig Powerpoint and the Normans Powerpoint spring to mind) which I was delighted to receive and share on the site. I’d again appeal to teachers using the site, that if you download a free resource, that you return the favour and share a resource of your own through the site. The only requirement is that you have created the resource yourself, and that if you use material in the resource which was created by others, you should get their permission and/or acknowledge them in the resource.
Regards to all visitors to the site and hopefully we’ll have the next 100,000 visitors before the end of the year.
