A structured board to support understanding of dates and calendars

A structured board to support understanding of dates and calendars

The months board is designed to support students to understand the concept of counting on when calculating time for calendars and dates. It can be used to develop understanding of counting in weeks and it can support recalling the days in each month. It is ideal for laminating to allow students to write the day they are starting at by the correct date and count ahead, jumping in whole weeks if they can or filling in all the days. Three worksheets are provided which can be used with the board: What is the date? What day of the week? How many Days?

Structured Arithmetic Boards to Support Maths Difficulties

Structured Arithmetic Boards to Support Maths Difficulties

This pack of 13 pages contains grids to support: Long multiplication for 2 by 2 digits Rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000 Vertical number line 2 differentiated place value boards to aid multiplying and dividing by multiples of 10 and aligning sums correctly Bus stop division with remainder Bus stop division with decimal answers All boards except the vertical number line come with an instruction sheet to guide how to use the board. Please note that I have also provided a grid for long multiplication 2 digits by 1 digit, which is available as a free download to try out. I have developed these boards through my work with students with difficulties in maths including dyscalculia. I have found these structured guides support learning and allow processes to be understood. They aid students to learn using this scaffolding approach, which can be taken away when they feel more confident. These boards are ideal for laminating so they can be used repeatedly.
