Two dimensional shapes jigsaw.
Can be used as a review at the end of a lesson.
Can be prepared by copying the answer sheet onto different coloured sheets of paper (enough for half your class) and laminating them. Cut out all the squares from each sheet and place into a small resealable plastic bag. You would then have a class activity for pairs of students that could be reused many times.

#### Present Continuous - Sentence Editing Strips FREE

Present continuous - sentence editing strips.

What are Sentence Editing Strips?
These strips are easy to use with almost no prep! The idea is that students work on each strip on their own then pass it along to their partner. Just print, laminate for durability and cut up the strips. The strips are numbered (1-20) on each page for each theme (it's preferable you do each set separately. Instruct the students that they need to complete all strips (1-20). Write the answers on the board at the end of the activity.

What's included:
- 20 colored strips (present continuous)
- 20 B&W strips (present continuous)

## Primary resources

#### NUMBER FACTS SCREENER and STRATEGY OVERVIEW

I have updated this screener to give more detail. It is the first screener I use in intervention and can be administered to a whole class to give you some idea of ability groupings and who needs further screening.

I administer the addition grid one-on-one, targeting the strategies that have been identified. I use the addition grid and it is helpful to show students the facts they know and the ones they need to learn within a strategy. Sometimes they see the relationships themselves and I encourage them to identify the next group of facts to learn.

I find a lot of my intervention kids use their fingers for all addition and subtraction and this is where the problem must be addressed. If they are using their fingers and their answers are accurate I don't do anything. They have a successful strategy for those number facts. If they are using their fingers and their answers are wrong then you need to address this either by correcting the existing strategy or replacing it with a more efficient one. You may need to look at my Slam Dunk workbooks if this is the case because it will take some time to replace a habit that the student has probably been using for years. Combine the worksheets and hands-on activities with games for optimum concept development.

I teach the subtraction facts along with the addition facts to address the problem some students have with subtraction (as being harder than addition). Fact Families fit in here nicely.

The games are a must for intervention kids who just need the repetition to achieve mastery. The fun of playing a game means they come to the task with eager anticipation and this is the mindset you want for learning to occur. The repetition will lead to fluency. The more they play, the faster the progress they will make, so putting the games in a Maths Centre for daily practice is ideal. I also send them home for Family Fun Time when I can.

#### Les nombres de 0 a 10

#### Doubles Plus One - Addition Game - Doubles +1 - Jump - a Math Game FREEBIE

Doubles Plus One Addition Game - JUMP is a printable addition game which teaches the Doubles Plus One Addition Facts. These number facts are essential for efficient mental computations. 'Doubles Plus One' makes the learning of these number facts fun

In my classrooms we do a lot of work on the need for efficiency in doing mental computations. We aim for, 'SEE IT, SAY IT' . This game offers heaps of opportunity
to discuss 'efficient' addition strategies. It also demonstrates how those who use efficient strategies will do better at the game.

Three Ways to Play:

1. Draw this grid outside on the concrete using chalk. Each square should be about 30cm by 30cm.

2. Draw the grid inside the classroom on the carpet with chalk. NB The students will love you but the cleaners might have to be reassure you will clean up the carpet hehehe

3 - Print out the game board and have the students place their fingers on the the little frog feet.

How to Play:

1. Two players stand with their feet in the large feet facing the addition game board.

2. A 'Caller' asks a question from one of the cards.

3. When a player has worked out the answer they must jump from their spot onto the correct answer. Do not move until you know the answer.

4. Players then rotate positions but the winner stays to compete with next player.

NB The object of this addition game is to have a bit of fun while you learn the addition facts. So practice your 'Doubles + One' number facts while you're waiting to play this addition game.

The game board and the game cards are all included in the download.

Extension Idea - Calculators make for extra fun when playing this game as most people can 'Beat the Calculator'!

## Senior secondary resources

#### TIGER LEAPING GORGE SOUTH WEST CHINA - PHYSICAL AND CULTURAL STUDY

This unit takes students into a wild and interesting corner of Yunnan. It can be used to enhance locational, Place and Physical Geography (Stage 3 UK) or Physical geography of rivers and valleys (Australian curriculum) Add to that the environmental debate over the proposed placement of a large dam that would have caused the displacement of nearly 100,000 people - mainly from a minority group- and the use of this unit is broadened. If that isn't enough to entice you to use it - add the story of a very athletic tiger that is said to have leaped across a gorge to escape pursuing hunters. This is a very wild environment and students can easily recognise the power of the water as it rushes through the narrow gorge. Join in the tour and take the carriage ride through part of the gorge. A final test page is provided in colour (for screen projection and discussion) and in black and white for hard copy provision. This is a very interesting area of China and will be followed in other units by excursions into the mountain and lake district.
