Flip- chart moves through stages of multiplication as repeated addition and then an array. Can be made more practical (fun) by having a collection of small pairs of socks and lots of real life examples of an array. Also children love the chocolate challenge!

A game that can be played in pairs, threes or independently. Please note that this game focuses on times tables facts from 2 to 10 to ensure children are confident in these tables before progressing to the 11s and 12s, which will need to be taught subsequently.
Children need a 'Table Splat' mat and counters (different coloured counters for each child). Children take turns to turn over a card, revealing a times tables question. The child who is the first to place their counter on the correct answer (whilst shouting 'SPLAT!') can leave their counter on the board. The winner is the player with the most counters on the board once all of the times table cards have been used.
Differentiate by choosing the multiplication cards relevant for that child, depending on which times table they are currently working on.
*Update: 6s and 9s have been underlined, to avoid confusion.*

I created this code breaking maths lesson for an Ofsted observation. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and had so much fun (whilst still learning).
The children are told that they have been selected by the local police to solve a crime. Unfortunately, all of the money from the school office has been stolen and an artist impression of the suspects has been provided. The children must crack the secret police codes to elimate the innocent suspects (cross them off) and reveal the final two suspects. Once this has been completed the last clue is placed on the IWB. Children get a reward for helping the police!
I have differentiated the 4 ways questions (HIPPO - the highest, MOUSE - the second highest, HA - third highest, LA - lowest) but they could be adapted to any year group! I have also included the lesson plan and PowerPoint to help clarify the task. Enjoy!
1st answer = MAN
2nd answer = HAT
3rd answer = BEARD
4th answer = GLASSES
5th answer = MOUSTACHE
6th answer = GINER
2 SUSPECTS LEFT = Kenny and Eric
THIEF IS = KENNY
*PLEASE NOTE I HAVE ADDED 2 ADDITIONAL DIFFERENTIATED SHEETS AND A POWERPOINT*
I couldn't find any materials on this when I needed to teach my year 3 class what the equals sign REALLY meant.
I have included the lesson plan I used, the 3 differentiated worksheets and a Powerpoint I made.
Also have included a homework set of resource sheets (could alternatively be used in class as a reinforcement at a later date.)
UPDATE: I have added a more challenging resource for year 3/4
In this lesson, you will use base ten blocks and models to introduce and practice three alternative division strategies: fair sharing, area model, and partial quotients.
The lesson uses whole numbers to introduce the concept, while the anchor station has a set of whole number expressions and set of decimal expressions.
This lesson is meant to be done with your students, ideally in small groups, but is also appropriate for whole group direct instruction.
Although this lesson uses 2 digit divisors, it could also be used with fourth graders because all questions are used with models.
Use your lesson time wisely with this low prep notebook activity. All pieces are designed to fit neatly into your students' interactive notebooks and are jam-packed with info to minimize copying, cutting, folding, and gluing so that you can make the most of your prep and instructional time.
This worksheet covers the introductory lesson to Order of operations i.e. addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The resource takes the student through 3 levels of difficulty - bronze, silver and gold. This worksheet is very suitable as revision of Order of Operation.
Answers included in separate sheet.
Target times tables effectively with this mixed bundle!
With over 20% off, this bundle contains a variety of resources for improving times tables including daily practice, display mats with tips and tricks, and self marking on screen tests (tests requires excel to run).
A word document which can be used as an IWB problem, to introduce equivalent (unit) fractions, with a pizza problem story.
Also included is an equivalent fraction block, to be printed and cut out to be used as an ongoing resource for equivalence, and worksheet.
This unit contains 6 types of word problems with 10 of each type on a page to solve. This repetition of each type will assist students struggling to learn how to solve different types of word problems.
