Ask Me Tags....Classroom management tool

Ask Me Tags....Classroom management tool

These little tags are designed as a classroom management strategy to help support students if they become ‘stuck’ on a classroom activity. Each day, 3 students are nominated to be the ASK 3 TEAM, and these tags are designed to be laminated and worn on the end of lanyards to identify them in the classroom. Fantastic for classroom teachers to have in their teaching kit to leave with the names of 3 responsible students if they are going to be absent. A helpful resource and strategy for Relief teachers to have in their resource kits. Look for responsible students and allow them to be your assistant teachers for the day.

HOW TO PLAY •The person who throws the highest number goes first (or has longest hair, next birthday ....paper, scissors, rock etc). •The aim of the game is to be the first player to cover all of their ten blocks (or all of the blocks on their playmat….this is determined by group agreement of the rules) •Roll the die or dice, and collect the corresponding number of blocks to be placed on the game board on any of the spaces shown that will fit the block shape. •When ten unit (one) blocks have been collected, they can be ‘traded’ for a long (Ten’) and placed on a long shape on the board. •When playing with two dice, encourage students to take the amount from the ‘bank’ tens and ones, and place them on the board. If the player has enough ones in their turn they can trade using ones on the board that may already be in play. •In the hundreds game, the winner is the first to trade to 100. You will receive 5 playing boards in both colour and black and white, playing rules and variations of the game. This is a PDF file.

Subitising Dot Patterns - How Many Bubbles?

Subitising Dot Patterns - How Many Bubbles?

Subitising is the instant recognition of patterns of shapes to be able to determine a number. There are many different ways in which we all see these patterns and they are a lively discussion topic for any primary grade class to determine how we interpret these displays of dots. I encourage you to view this dot number talk by Jo Boaler in one of her many inspirational presentations https://vimeo.com/129139086 where she works through this concept with a middle primary group of students. This download comes with both a PowerPoint presentation and a PDF version with 27 slides/pages (including credits and terms of use). As the slides increase in difficulty the students transfer their knowledge from class discussions and can readily determine a quite complex display of dots on a page. The graphics are engaging and visually inviting for students with some wonderful clipart from Manny's Sketchpad . A useful addition to any Maths Teaching resource kit for primary school teaching.
