So many great ideas that inspire me to extend these ideas further. Students love quizzes?!
It really a very good teaching packs for my children. My children love it very much and can learn more about Maths in other interest way. Very colourful worksheets.
Deeper Thinking Skills
I really enjoy using the activities in this pack. Teaching Intellectually Disabled students, where one student may know much more than the other and where the grade level of a student does not matter, I have found that this particular pack makes the students think deeper than the normal math problem would. Intellectually Disabled students lack this ability and need help in reasoning and thinking a problem through to come up with the correct answers.
This pack provides much of what they need. It fills in the gaps and also provides me with needed information as to what to teach them more of to expand their knowledge.
I use this as a daily activity to start off the math class.
Thank you for this pack.
Wow!!! What can I say? This range of Mental Maths resources is invaluable. It has certainly helped this old Year 3 teacher feel a lot younger by injecting some fun and excitement into his daily teaching.
This resource contains so many fantastic mental maths activities. The work is differentiated so many ways and all include the answers - meaning it can literally just be picked up! I even find things like the circle calculations self explanatory meaning I have left them with supply and for homework. It is such a helpful resource.
Mental Maths Pack
The Mental Maths Pack is really fantastic and I use it every week. The students really love doing the mental maths questions. Having the sound files is so good for me because I can walk around and see how my students are going while the talking is being done for me. I can put the answers up on the IWB afterwards for the students to mark their own work. Really fabulous resource.
I have been using this resource with my P4 class and found it really useful. The children love the audio (I guess it gives them a break from my voice!) and the crossword type puzzles. Really useful resource.
Very helpful with a large class!
My children of varying abilities struggled with mental maths, but this pack quickly helped me plug gaps and challenge the more able children. I use these resources on a regular basis with all children in Year 4!
Yay All Kids Engaged!
I have a noisy and large class. However whenever I use the ideas from this pack, absolute silence, focus and excellent questions with raised hands throughout!
This is a great pack! It's a motivator for all abilities and my kids love the challenge this pack provides.
