Maths - Money / Measure Word Problems (three activities) KS1 Primary SEND

Maths - Money / Measure Word Problems (three activities) KS1 Primary SEND

I have worked with Primary and Secondary SEND pupils for over 17 years and have built up a bank of resources to support their learning using visual resources that often lend themselves to being used effectively outside of the classroom. A lot of my resources can be used in places such as supermarkets and come with follow-up classroom-based work. My teaching has consistently been graded as Outstanding throughout my career. This resource comprises of three activities to be taught in succession. The learning objectives focus on teaching pupils to read a written Maths problem and understand what operations they need to do in order to answer the question. There is one activity to be taught in a supermarket and the others are classroom-based. It asks pupils questions like 'how many Kit Kats can you buy for £2'. I have a vast collection of resources on my hard drive and have uploaded a small proportion of these; if there is anything in particular you are looking for, please contact me and I will probably have it!
