Negative Numbers

FREE for new buyers – Enter code SEPTEMBER-SAVER at checkout. A range of activities to resource differentiated negative numbers lessons at Key Stage 2 (KS2) and some early KS3. Includes 3 fun Hidden Word / Spot the Mistake Puzzles (and solutions), a 30-card Loop Game / Dominoes Set and 16 Word Problems Cards (8 multi-step and 8 more simple). PUZZLES An engaging alternative to worksheets, these make ideal starter, early finisher or homework activities. There’s one on increasing and decreasing temperature (Celsius), one for simple subtraction calculations with mostly negative number answers and a more challenging puzzle featuring addition and subtraction of negative and positive integers. Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. Similar to codebreaker puzzles, a maths-related word is revealed after completing calculations. Each puzzle contains a grid. Within each box is a calculation and a letter. Pupils circle any boxes containing errors. Then they assemble letters from remaining boxes to reveal a maths word. There's a further challenge question / task at the bottom of the page linked to the word. Pupils often forget or avoid checking their work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. LOOP CARDS / DOMINOES Fun group / whole class activity to consolidate adding and subtracting negative numbers, using a range of phrases ('reduce by', 'increase', 'difference between' etc). It forms a continuous loop so start anywhere. WORD PROBLEM CARDS 8 Multi-Step Word Problem Cards and 8 more simple. Solutions can be printed back to back with question side for student self-checking or can be printed and made into separate cards if required. Consolidates understanding of negative numbers in the contexts of temperature (degrees Celsius), money / bank accounts and points in a sporting league. Work well as early finisher challenges. Separate pounds and dollars versions included. My Hidden Word and Crossnumber Puzzle Packs have been especially popular.

3D Shape Memory

3D Shape Memory

MORE THAN JUST A MEMORY GAME!! Though this was created as a memory game, its cards can be used for so many other fun and educational activities, games and study aides. Print these pages out double-sided. This will make the page containing a colorful design the cover, or top, of the cards. Laminate the printed sheets to make for more durable playing cards (printing with card stock can also help with durability). Cut the cards along the black line. Once cut, mix the cards up, lay them out, and take turns flipping cards over. Kids will be exercising their memory, learning, and having fun while doing so! :)

Originally designed to brighten my own classroom, I am delighted to share this poster about Transformations. The files in this bundle make it easy for you to print as A5 handouts for students to keep, or as high quality posters from A4 up to A1. Why not look for my posters on other topics, which are also available for free on TES.com
