This resource is two games to support place value learning.
Both are fun and are great warm-up activities.
Each game involves throwing dice and recording the place value the student gives to the number shown on the dice.
The winner of Game 1 is the student who makes the highest score.
The winner of Game 2 is the student who has their answers in numerical order.
A hands on activity for Year 1 and 2 students. Students work with the concept of a half and a quarter and cut and paste representations of each.

3 sheets of 2D and 3D geometry shapes.
The first two sheets are the same activity of describing shapes, but the shapes are different on each sheet. The third sheet asks the student to draw, in the correct columns the 2D and 3D shapes they have identified.
Can be done individually, but originally designed to be completed collaboratively in small groups.
A worksheet for students to assign the correct labels for describing 2D and a 3D shapes.
Can be completed individually or in pairs.
Good for a quick diagnostic of mathematical language knowledge in describing 2D and 3D shapes.
A worksheet for students to practice working with the rotation concept.
The idea here is rotating a shape around a point. There are various exercises, graduating in difficulty.
Answer sheet is included.
These worksheets require students to record their knowledge of a range of 3D shapes. It includes asking them to draw the shape, describe the shape, draw from another angle and give an example of the shape outside the classroom. The Upper Elementary worksheet also asks them to draw the cross section.
Can be done individually or in small groups. Suitable as an on-going activity. Best worked at A3 paper size.

Orienteering is a fun way to combine Physical Education with Maths!
This is a simple, quick to set up, quick to run orienteering activity for school students.
Once you have put together this pre-marked kit you can use it again and again.
This activity is a good introduction to orienteering for students. It can be run indoors or outdoors, in a large or small space.
Included in the pack are pre-marked resources ready to use, and also blank resources for you to modify to suit.
An activity to prompt or reflect on learning about body systems (digestive, circulatory, respiratory and nervous).
This activity includes a recording sheet, a sheet of ‘notes’ to cut and glue on to the recording sheet and a teacher note sheet.
Ideal for small groups.
Excellent for discussing understanding of body systems.
A set of 4 activities designed for students to practice reading scales for liquid measurements. Students can also practice recording the readings given. One of the activities is a cut-and-paste example, where students relish the opportunity to have a kinesthetic element to their work.
These activities can be used to provide diagnostic information on students’ prior knowledge of reading volume measures, support their learning or as a follow-up set of activities.
Provided; 4 activities and a sheet of cut-outs.
A set of On Task tickets or coupons to reward positive working habits.
Great to establish behavior that leads to self managing students who are focused on their learning.
Designed to a retro style, students will love the tactile nature of earning and collecting as many of these as they can.
How you reward the redeeming of these is up to your imagination - maybe even have your students create a suitable redemption scheme of their own.
