Maths presentation and feedback prompt bookmark for books/table/ KS1 & 2.

Maths presentation and feedback prompt bookmark for books/table/ KS1 & 2.

I'm using these bookmarks to prompt and remind the children of our presentation expectations of our school. You could place children's targets on back or just use them to remind the children what page they are on next (As at a young age they have a habit of missing pages out!) I have attached the word doc so you can attach your school's feedback policy etc...and make it suit your needs. Many thanks, hope you find this useful.

Money for Early Years

Money for Early Years

Using fake money, pupils can sort the coins onto the right sheets with the value of the coins. Money flash cards to be used prior or after learning. Low ability pupils can be supported by using the flashcard to correlate the image of the coin with its value. High ability pupils can then begin to add money together by shopping for an object they would like.

Times Tables 2s, 5s and 10s (Interactive Whiteboard Game)

Times Tables 2s, 5s and 10s (Interactive Whiteboard Game)

This is a fun interactive whiteboard game, created in PowerPoint, with triggered animations. All my students have loved this activity ('Sir, can we play the chain-game?'). It is enjoyable for both high and low ability – it not only helps students learn the 2, 5 and 10 times-tables, but they also need to remember where the numbers are hidden! - I typically use this activity as a starter and then as a plenary at the end of the lesson. It gets the whole class involved – even when it's not a students turn, they are repeating the numbers in their head and they are desperate to say where the next number is! The way that I play the game: 1. I go through the members of the sequence and ensure that the students are familiar with each of the numbers; 2. When the board is revealed, I give about 15 seconds to ‘peek’ at the uncovered board so that the students can try to learn where the first few numbers are; 3. I then call up the students one-at-a-time to try an uncover as many numbers as they can before they go wrong. NOTES: I encourage the students to call out the number that they are looking for because this reinforces the learning. This activity works very well if you get two students to play against each other – either on the interactive whiteboard or on PCs.
