Higher or Lower?

Higher or Lower?

Superb starter or plenary to any maths lesson ... the children love this game! This presentation includes 8 games of 'Higher or Lower' - 2 games containing numbers in the 10 times tables - 2 games containing numbers in the 5 times tables - 2 games containing numbers in the 2 times tables - 2 games containing numbers from 1 to 10 How to play: 1. Flip over the first card. 2. Ask a child to say if they think the next card will be 'higher' or 'lower' than the card displayed. If they get the answer correct, they continue. If the get the answer wrong, start over with another child. 3. You can make each game easier by displaying all the possible numbers in each game. Then you can just cross them off as they appear (so that the children can see exactly what numbers are remaining thus increasing their chance of guessing if the next number will be higher or lower). ENJOY!

Ordering Decimals task cards

Ordering Decimals task cards

Included in this pack are 32 task cards for ordering decimals, suitable for Year 4 and 5. There are 16 red cards which use whole numbers and numbers with up to 2 decimal places. The green pack uses decimal numbers with up to 3 decimal places. Children could either use the green or red pack depending on their understanding of decimals. Please note that the green cards 1-7 are the same as red cards 10-16 so if students first complete the red pack they then need to start at number 8 of the green pack as an extension task. Included on every task is an additional question such as rounding a number or finding the total for the smallest and largest decimal. (These task cards are the same as my Christmas Ordering Decimals Task Cards but can be used any time of year!)

Subsitizing Cards for Times Tables

Subsitizing Cards for Times Tables

The best way to learn times tables! This is a fantastic resource for assessing whether children know their times tables (and that they also understand the concept of repeated addition). Subsitizing means counting, without counting. You can use each times table on it's own or mixed. The children split the cards between the players and when they play their card, the first person to say the correct answer gets the point. it's very useful to have a referee armed with a times table grid to ensure the children are getting the answers correct. But the referee is also employing a very useful technique when checking the answers. That's one of the things that makes it so effective because the game can be played alongside the use of other useful techniques. The children's competitive edge masks the learning of times tables.
