  10. 10. Resources – Number Sense  It’s not about making your lesson a maths lesson.  It’s about finding ways to make small changes in order to help students with their numeracy/number sense skills. www.missbsresources.com
  11. 11. Impact Line Impact lines focus on students number sense and their understanding of directed numbers. Provide students with or allow the students to create a list of advantages and disadvantages, on a particular concept/ topic . The students then collaboratively discuss which will have the largest positive and negative impact. As a challenge students should work out that 0 means the event has no impact at all on the topic. www.missbsresources.com

  13. 13. Battle Words The idea is that students apply their knowledge of co-ordinates to remember and define key words. Battle Words has two levels with easy being a one quadrant grid and hard being a four quadrant grid for higher ability students. www.missbsresources.com
  14. 14. Writing Weigh- In Tackles students understanding of weight as well as helping them apply VCOP to improve extended writing task. This activity also gives students a chance to practise their addition skills. The resource works on the basis the heavier the assignment the more sophisticated the answer is. Teachers should set a minimum weight for the assignment, which can easily be differentiated for groups of students. When setting the weight use kg instead of g so pupils have to remember 1000g = 1kg.
  15. 15. Total Word Out Students have to identify and total key words from the lesson using scrabble blocks. This activity allows the students to think about higher order and subject specific terminology. It also allows students chance to practice their addition skills and finding average. www.missbsresources.com
  16. 16. Total Word Out www.missbsresources.com
  17. 17. Connections Connections allows students to take a journey tailored specifically to their individual needs within a lesson. A student can hop of the train and continue attempt to master a skill when needed, before catching the connection to the next station. Students are required to work with time and calculate how long their individual journey has taken, how long they spent in stations and how long they spent on the train. On a student’s arrival at the final destination students should attempt to complete an arrivals challenge. www.missbsresources.com
  18. 18. Thermometer of Understanding The Thermometer of Understanding allows students a chance to rate their learning more accurately than a simple Red, Amber and Green, (RAG). Students have to think about directed numbers, (positive and negative numbers), in relation to their learning within the lesson. www.missbsresources.com
