An introduction of the ‘think multiplication strategy’ to help with division. An animated, interactive PowerPoint presentation with arrays of dots to help students visualize related multiplication and division facts. A partially covered array showing only the number of rows in an array, but not the number of dots in each row is shown, along with a matching fact statement (e.g. “Altogether there are 40 dots”) Students are encouraged to give the multiplication sentence AND related division sentence using the information shown (total number of dots & number of rows/groups) that helps work out the array proportions. e.g. 5 x ? = 40 and 40 ÷ 5= ?. 14 example arrays. Includes 3 level differentiated division / multiplication worksheet in same style, plus colour matching facts for all tables x2-x10

PowerPoint whole-class teaching resource Two page worksheet (in word & PDF format) using the same pencil turns image to consolidate learning.
Animated & illustrated PowerPoint introduction to prefixes and suffixes and how they change the meaning of (base) words. Most common prefixes and suffixes covered. Each prefix or suffix is presented with 10+ logical examples in an engaging style. Think-pair-share activities for each prefix or suffix. Slide Order: Review of base words quickly covered with an identify the base word activity. Explanation and examples of common prefixes: ‘re’, ‘un’, ‘mis’, ‘pre’, and ‘dis’. 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.
Carefully designed, double-sided, Phase 5 phonics mats. One side has grapheme and memorable clip-art example(s), reverse side has a list of example words (taken from Letters and Sound, Phase 5, Bank of Words). Each side is laid out in the reverse order - so that when the clip-art side is printed and put back-to-back with the word list side the words are directly behind the image. This helps the learner to find the spelling pattern they are looking for as the mat is ‘flippable’. No title on the table mat to maximize examples.
Two resources (3 PowerPoints and lots of worksheets) to help learners really understand mental subtraction.
Adjectives mats & adjectives posters. Differentiated adjective scaffolds - one with many adjectives, one with less and larger font. Adjective mats are A4. Adjective posters are A3. Also uploaded the publisher file if you wish to edit the example words (the font used is Topmarks )

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. Includes some supporting, differentiated worksheets
Repeated addition, arrays and multiplication resources to help children understand the concepts of repeated addition, arrays and multiplication. 2 PowerPoints (2 facts & 5 facts) clearly demonstrate repeated addition and logically introduce groups of items, and then arrays. Includes 12 worksheet activities thoughtfully designed to allow students to develop repeated addition and multiplication skills and understanding. Worksheets include matching activities, cut and sticks, drawing, a booklet to make arrays and other helpful activities. (Most examples focus on the 2s, 5s and 10s facts - some worksheets are differentiated with more challenging examples) Perfect for years 1 and 2.
Think Addition Strategy to do Subtraction mental math 2 Presentations & 8 Worksheets - Think-addition-to-do-subtraction is a mental math strategy that introduces students to the concept that there is an inverse relationship between addition and subtraction. You think of an addition fact in the same fact family. For example, you can solve 10 - 4 = ? by thinking 4 + ? = 10 and knowing that 4 + 6 = 10. I made these two PowerPoints to help my grade 3 class (ages 8 & 9) with the think-addition strategy. Many of my students this year are slow to recall number-bond facts, and therefore this has hopefully helped them to see the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction. Could well be used in earlier grades. 1 PowerPoint of 25 sums with matching circles being added and taken away: mainly for subtraction sums between 10-20, but also has 4 slides for facts to 10. Slides can of course be hidden and order rearranged. 2nd PowerPoint of 20 larger sums with no circles: variety of examples within 100. Comes with seven subtraction think addition worksheets in PDF format of increasing difficulty, and 1 editable microsoft word worksheet.
