Mental Addition Grid Generator

Mental Addition Grid Generator

An easy to use spreadsheet that will create differentiated mental addition grids for adding up to four numbers together (1-2 digits). Perfect for weekly tests, practising mental addition or interventions. Follow the instructions on the spreadsheet and then press print when ready. Easy! Also, pressing print will just print the student's part of the worksheet - not the teacher's instructions - in order to save you time and paper! Your pack includes three differentiated worksheets in pdf form as examples. However you can create as many versions of these worksheets as you like using the Excel based generator. The differentiation: Bronze - one number for each column and each row to allow for two numbers to be required to add. Silver - the rows will remain at only one number but the columns could be one or two more numbers to add. Therefore, children will be required to add 2-3 numbers together. Gold - the rows could be one or two numbers and the columns one to three numbers. Therefore, children will be required to add 2-5 numbers together. You can set the maximum value any number can have (this could be a one or two digit number). You can also choose the size of your grid. A big time saver and a must-have tool for every teacher, tutor and teaching assistant.

Mastery, fluency and reasoning Place value lower KS2 Year 3 and 4 ordering numbers and more!

Here are 30 questions that promote critical thinking. They are based upon the mastery approach . They are great for showing if a child has understood the process/concept of place value, adding 100/1000, ordering numbers and more. Lots of puzzles and problems with pictorial representations. Feel free to edit and differentiate to meet your classes needs. Many thanks, I hope they are useful.

Mental Maths Activity

Mental Maths Activity

Great to have on the wall for maths starters or early morning work. Each day, change the number at the top. For example, 81. Then stick up the statement cards of your choice for the children to solve using your chosen number. You can change the statements each day along with the number. You can edit the statements on word to make harder/easier for your class. Can work for all ages and year groups! My class loved this activity!
