It was great to find a set of resources that enable me to teach percentages in a clear, interesting manner. I loved the visual way of showing the link between fractions, decimals and percentages. The dominoes and follow me cards are a great way to liven up a lesson. The "What percentage?" cards are clear and colourful and great for both displays and as discussion prompts.
Such a wonderful resource that is beautifully illustrated! The pack, like all of the others, is an excellent way to commence the topic with any year level as it starts at the beginning of the concept and progressively increases in difficulty to suit all age groups. I love the versatility of each of the packs. To everyone at 'Teaching Packs', thanks for the wonderful resources!
i used this pack for my interventions i would recommend this it is very helpful and the children loved ir
Children enjoyed using these resources.
Then don't worry because this resource provides a clear step by step approach to explaining what percentages are and how to use them. Very accessible language and up to date examples are colourfully displayed on the posters and the work sheets link clearly to the examples with lots of chances for consolidation. Thanks
Teaching percentages can be tricky but this pack is very visual and has excellent resources to help.
The Percentages Pack (as with all the packs) are so professionally produced. They are so colourful and easy for the children to understand. Keep up the good work!
This is an excellent resource. I used it with my class and they loved it especially with the penguins. I had pages relevant at the time displayed and children were often seen referring to them and other commented how helpful they were. Keep up the fabulous work! Highly recommended resource to all.
An excellent resource....This is a very important topic in year 6 and with these resources I will find it easier to deliver the lessons and help children understand the concept better..... i like the penguins and am sure that the children will love them too! Now I just have to add some problem solving cards to match and it would be it!! thanks so much
