We hope you find these worksheets useful and save you time planning. We aim to produce resources which are of the highest quality - we strongly believe that the visual aspects of these worksheets enable deep understanding of the areas being taught. Once you have used these resources, we would love to hear what worked particularly well and what could be improved on: we often edit our resources. Thank you for taking your time to browse this resource! @mathsteryed

#### DIY rekenrek (20 bead frame counter)

Knowing and using friendly numbers/buddy numbers/partners to make 10 comes from being able to visualise the number and a rekenrek is a great resource to have for students. This is the small student sized DIY one you can make with some beads, pipe cleaners and a paint stirrer (much sturdier than foam) The red/white beads show the relationships between 5 and 10 (for example it is also easy to show 7 as one row of 5 and 2 more or a row of 4 and a row of 3 to show the doubles component).

#### Halloween!

How about some Halloween Patterning Fun? Have your students participate in Halloween and Math at the same time! A great way to keep your students learning math on a busy and fun day! A fun way to review Patterning! Two extra sheets have been added to reflect the two different ways of saying &quot;Happy Halloween!&quot; &amp; &quot;Trick or Treat!&quot; 10 pages.

#### Arrays - Printables for Teaching Multiplication & Division by Visualising Groups

A selection of array sheets with examples, which can be printed and used as a differentiated resource in primary maths and special education, for teaching multiplication and division. Groups of spots, fishes, cupcakes, and dinosaurs are provided. Each page of array symbols has separate rows or columns differentiated by colour or shading, to help with subitizing. Students can use the array sheet to circle groups, and then write corresponding pairs of number sentences. They can then check their number sentences by counting the objects in each group they have circled, and making sure that they match. Students can also use the sheets to test each other with multiplication and division. One student circles the objects, and the other writes the correct number sentence/s which correspond with the grouping/s their partner made. Students who are beginning multiplication can use the sheet for visualising and writing number sentences relating to 2x, 5x and 10x tables. Students who are ready for more advanced multiplication can use the sheet for number sentences relating to 3x, 4x, 6x, 7x, 8x and 9x tables. Students who are learning division can use the array sheet to visualise whole groups split into parts. Example uses for both multiplication and division are given. Several visual groupings and pairs of number sentences can be fit onto each array page template. Both colored and black and white versions are included. Some students who have used these array sheets, circle the groups with colored markers, and then write the matching number sentences near the bottom of the page, in the same colors. The color-coding is an additional aid to visualizing and recognizing multiplication and division patterns.

#### MATHS SCREENERS for DIFFERENTIATION - Years 2 to 5 - Australian - Free sample

This product is a free sample of the complete package which contains Maths screeners for Number, Place Value, Patterns and Algebra as well as Decimals as set out in the Australian Curriculum. ACARA references are provided for those who need them. There are 4 screeners (2 pages each) for each year level from Year 2 to Year 5. All the answers are included. I have also added Class Overviews which you can use after you have administered a screener to the whole class. Collating the results can be done by a teaching assistant or willing volunteer and you will have a good preliminary idea of the range of skills and the degree of differentiation required. The screeners are basic and give diagnostic information to identify and manage intervention groups. They provide a range of data to begin group work targeting skill deficits. You will identify further scaffolding requirements as you go, but these screeners are the first step. My IMP programs are ideal to provide the intervention necessary and the games I use consolidate these skills. I've been doing it this way for years now, and I know it works. I have a bundle containing the four programs for a school-wide intervention strategy. I also have bundles at year levels with the games that target skill deficits specific to that year level if you want to go that way.

#### Dragon Pack - Visual Math and Logic Puzzles for Middle and Upper Primary

A set of 19 visual maths activities in a 38-page resource, for middle and upper primary years. A good choice for morning maths, or for early finish / extension work at the end lessons. Also makes a good maths kit for supply teachers, with a variety of high-interest maths activities. Activities in the pack include: * graphing - pictograph interpretation, with basic maths operations * map-reading / finding directions * Tangram geometry puzzle - choice of 3 dragon designs which can be used as decorative artworks for the classroom, when each puzzle is completed. Tangrams are good training for primary students in spatial problem-solving. * geometry - polygon pattern sequencing * 2- and 3-digit addition - using dragon icon keys * addition and/or subtraction - using number bonds * multiplication - using factors, arrays and number bonds * division - using arrays * word puzzles * spatial logic puzzle Two visual maths templates are provided for students to create their own sums as well, to test their desk buddies. The dragon egg number bonds can be used for addition, subtraction or multiplication. Some middle primary students enjoy working together to create their own sets of number bonds for their desk buddy to work on. The students then mark each other's work. This activity builds maths confidence. The dragon array sheets can be used for both multiplication and division, and students can test each other. For example: &quot;Draw 6 groups of 4, and 4 groups of 6 on the dragon array&quot;. All answers to puzzles are included.

#### No Prep - Art in Math / Math in Art: Make Amazing Designs with Ruler & Pen

A 20-page resource which can be used to make thousands of different symmetrical designs, in black and white or colour. Students need only a ruler and a pencil or pen, to easily create intricate designs such as concentric circles, cardioids, and Cartesian stars. All instructions and templates included, plus graph paper and examples. For a more mathematical lesson, students could draw their own circles with a compass in their maths books, and mark off the gradations with a protractor. Some of the shapes created with this resource can be used for practice in measuring angles. Designs may be filled with coloured pen, pencil or felt-tipped markers if desired, to produce very striking results. These designs look great when pinned up in the classroom, and each student's work is unique.

#### Spider Pack - Math, Puzzles & Amazing Geometric Art
