Maths and Art Time Telling Updated for 2018-19

Maths and Art Time Telling Updated for 2018-19

I originally produced this resource to help my own children learn to tell the time. It has since been used extensively to support teaching time telling to children aged between 5 and 10 years of age. This Key Stage 1 and 2 Maths resource provides clear visuals and activities to support children in the development of time telling skills. The aim is to encourage children to take a hands on approach linking maths and creativity in an enjoyable way. Slides are provided in three different formats; full colour, black and white photocopiable and tinted dyslexia friendly.

Colouring

Colouring

Many children and adults suffer from stress and anxiety at times. An over busy brain makes it difficult to concentrate on tasks and the feelings associated with anxiety can cause distress and further anxiety. Recent research suggests that activities which focus the mind without being overly taxing can help break the cycle of worry and anxiety and can help calm the busy mind. One such activity is colouring. This resource provides 40 original hand drawn kaleidoscopic images. The repetitive nature of the patterns is intentional, encouraging the individual to settle into a calming routine. Drawings range in complexity, making it a suitable resource for all age groups, including adults. I hope that enjoyment and a sense of calm can be found by using this resource.

Growth Mindset -  Divergent Thinking Skills Questions.

Growth Mindset - Divergent Thinking Skills Questions.

Updated for 2017-18. Thinking Skills are so important. Students and adults are often led to believe that there is only one right answer to the question. This doesn’t have to be the case though and it is really useful for students to be reminded of this, encouraging them to keep an open mind and explore possibilities. This way of thinking is referred to as divergent thinking and it goes hand in hand with creativity. This resource provides questions that encourage students to problem solve and consider lots of answers to questions that don’t have just one right answer. Each question is presented on an individual page so that they can be printed out and students can jot down ideas, scribble notes and even draw diagrams if they feel like it.
