Subitising Dot Patterns - How Many Bubbles?

(0)
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.

A Survival Kit for Supply and Relief Teachers

Now includes additional resources....Behaviour management booklet and Attention Getters. Since first compiling this resource in 2010, the classroom of the 21st Century has changed rapidly. Collaboration amongst teachers has also evolved, whether it be through Facebook, Blogging, Weeblies , Wiki spaces, Livebinder, Symbaloo, Twitter, Pinterest etc. There is so much on the internet now that at times it can become consuming and slightly overwhelming. I have included more website links and included a description of each website and what you will find there which is new. The activities remain the same. I have been building up my Pinterest Boards, so have included links to them within the book. Hope that you enjoy the layout. After 30 years of teaching, I thought it was well overdue to start sharing all those gems that you use in your day to day teaching that help make learning more meaningful and fun. I began to build a resource kit for myself when I began casual teaching, and then I realised just how many ideas and activities I had been using over the years. I have spent many hours searching through websites, searching books for great ideas and activities. I have now collected and compiled my book of activities and hints for casual teachers ...... A survival Kit to take with you when the phone rings, and you aren't sure what to take with you. The eBook can be used with any storage, to access when you need a quick activity or weblink. Copyright is granted to print off 1 copy for personal classroom use. (Please respect copyright and do not share or attempt to sell PDF, or print hard multiple copies)
