Each prefix then followed with a think-pair-share activity. 20+ examples of words with the prefix then shown for students to self check against. Explanation and examples of common suffixes: ‘-ful’, ‘-less’, ‘ly’, ‘er’, ‘est’ Each suffix followed with a think-pair-share activity 20+ Examples of words with the suffix. Quite a long slide show if all done at once (whole lesson perhaps). Could be used to introduce/review just prefixes or suffixes in one lesson by showing only 1 half of the presentation. Some slides could also be hidden. Other than a brief explanation and examples for each prefix or suffix, I’ve tried to keep it quite straight forward so that their isn’t too much lecturing or reading required. Recommend students use mini-whiteboards for the think-pair-shares or list on paper the examples pairs or small groups can come up with. Been designed with ESL grade 3, 4 and 5 students as the target pupils, so repetitive language used with vocabulary building as a desired outcome.
8 Mental Strategies for Multiplication These thoughtfully made PowerPoints are carefully designed to help students grasp commonly taught multiplication strategies ( and tricks) for x0, x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x8, and x9 times tables. Ideal for years 3 and 4, but also helpful for year 5 and 6. To multiply by 2 = double the number To multiply by 3 = double the number and add a set To multiply by 4 = double, then double again. To multiply by 5 = multiply by 10 then halve To multiply by 8 = double-double-double To multiply by 9 = use your fingers/ the digits of answer added = 9 To multiply by 0 = the answer is always 0 To multiply by 1 = the answer is always that same number. All the PowerPoints include examples to 12 and extensions to large multiplications to show that the strategy really comes in useful for doing tricky mental multiplication. Please see video for a taster. All slide animations are activated when you click the mouse, giving teacher and student thinking and explaining time. Video is sped up to get through the examples.
