Get their brains spinning as they play with these math spinners for a fun, engaging and hands on way to practise their math facts. The rigour is added with the higher level numbers used, the critical thinking it takes with multi operations and is therefore easy to differentiate for your groups and their needs.
These are simple to just and print and go! Use them with small groups, paired work or for independent practice. The children love to spin the spinners and complete the equations on the recording sheet. There is even space for making thinking visible.
I have used these as truly interactive notebook activities where the children have simply glued the sheet into their notebooks and used the spinners from there. I have also used them successfully with math centres.
