1Bs maths organisation 2013

For term one the main focus for mathematics is number. Therefore everyday modelled and group activities have been implemented on number. The school has implemented the tens program and Newmans prompts into its focus as well and this is completed every day. Additionally the hundreds chart focusing on numeral identification, forward and backward number sequences, counting by 2s, 5s and 10s is completed each day.

1 time a week on a Friday students would write down and discuss what they learned in maths for the week (Maths reflection) using a storyboard. For example- through writing, pictures, photos with captions, make a voice thread/slideshow on computer, brainstorming and listing as class, diagrams; play acting, child as teacher with partner - consolidation work.
