A tower which can be laminated and used as a great starter or lesson within KS1/Lower key stage.
Children are required to get down the timer by mentally adding or using resources.
Resources also comes with some key questions to extend the activity. Could be used to extend higher ability to think in a higher order way by guessing first before carrying out addition. 'How did you know?' type questions.
Potion making recipes using non standard and standard units of measure.
Create large buckets of water mixed with paint and glitter and have fun creating potions.
Labels for 'ingredients' (water and paint) included.
A division activity. Children could solve this physically first using concrete resources then move to using coloured pens/crayons to record within the treasure chests. I fins this way prepares my children for recording to find an answer within a test style situation.
A matching activity.
Print and laminate, cut out the animals and match them with the correct parent/baby.
Alternatively could be printed and children required to glue them into the correct places. A full word list added so children can label and name the animals too :)
A great way to encourage some greater depth thinking within position and direction.
A few activities to encourage the use of key words. For higher ability children the key words could be removed. For Lower ability children their answers could be scribed for them and made practical using apparatus/resources.
I split my class into mixed ability groups and ask them to answer the subtraction questions using resources of their own choosing. The questions go from LAP-AAP-AAP+-HAP. Children love working together to work out as many as possible!
A great way to secure fact family knowledge and understanding.Can children manipulate the numbers given to them. Could they reason and explain how they know? Eg. 'The biggest number must be at the front to be shared. The 2 smallest numbers multiply to make the biggest number.'
Y1 Fraction Dominoes - whole, half and quarter
A way to get your children to see whole, half and quarter in a variety of ways :) I found this resource useful as my class were getting used to the half, quarter and whole of a 'pizza' that we see everywhere.
Children to record different ways of making the number in the star. It could be just addition, subtraction or mixed. You could also edit for multiplication further up school. My children always come up with some great ways and this is a great way to assess the children's recall and mental ability before teaching calculation.
Enjoy - If you would like me to edit or change, drop me a comment.
Addition using subitising. Powerpoint and associated activities.
Activity could be edited so the children have to record their own number sentence and show using the 10 frame or children could be given a sum and have to show this using the 10 frame.
This could be used within the Early Years below 10 and in KS1 to 20.
Add comments if this is useful to you and I will create similar resources :)
Children to gather properties of 2D shapes within a table.
Can children answer the higher order thinking questions in a sentence? or could they answer them and an adult record. All great evidence within a maths book.
Aimed at Year 1 or shape intervention.
Addition questions - differentiated.
Children to find the answers to the sums, then find the matching letter card. Letter cards can be spread around the classroom for children to find. Letter cards reveal a planets name when all questions are answered and the letters are found. :)
