Written to support the teaching and learning of mathematical skills and concepts, The Maths Box: Box 3 was designed specifically for the development of 3rd class pupils.
The box contains:
The cards in each box are:
Overall I really like the Maths box and definitely think it would be a great addition to any classroom for station teaching or for use with early finishers. The cards and interesting, relevant, colourful and incorporate real life maths.irishprimaryteacher.ie
I was in touch with Prim-Ed a few weeks ago about their new Maths Box. I was eager to try them out as I hoped they would be as good as their Comprehension boxes. They sent me out two boxes to review, Box 3 and Box 5. Instead of having a quick look at them and throwing up a review on the blog I wanted to give a very honest review. So over the past few weeks I have familiarised myself with the boxes and what they have to offer. Each box covers the strands of Number, Algebra, Shape and Space, Measures, and Data. The cards themselves are very colourful and appealing to the children. They saw them as a fun activity rather than 'work'. Like the Comprehension box separate answer cards allow pupils to work independently. What I like about the Maths Box: - Firstly the colurful design and interesting images - Two cards per topic. this allows either two individuals or two groups to work on the same topic at the same time. - The answer sheets allow the children a great amount of independence - The cards themselves are unlike the children's maths books. This allows a chance to practice skills they have already worked on in class. - The cards have additional activities to challenge the more able pupils - They would also be very suitable for early finisher work - They would be very suitable for station teachingMentoring Muinteoir
