A Special Addition Series – Part 3

One more week left until the new school term begins. How quickly time flies! As I continue to work on my maths plan for the term, I have put together one more list of ideas to help you with teaching addition to your students.


A Special Addition Series – Part 2

My students are currently learning about addition. One of the things I enjoy about teaching Year 3s and 4s is that a lot of them still have a positive attitude towards their lessons. I hope that by keeping things fun and engaging, I will be able to encourage them to keep this attitude for a long time yet!

The Essentials

My ‘teaching bag’, amongst other things, includes back-up lesson plans, stationery, a bell and a whistle, hand sanitiser (of course!), tea and a mug and plenty of stickers. I sometimes feel a little like Mary Poppins in that scene where she’s unpacking her bag and out comes the mirror and the coat rack! These things are helpful and important for my teaching, but are they essential?
