We can’t sugar-coat it, teaching maths and numeracy can be hard. But if you’re in need of some inspiration to make maths more fun for your class and get them engaged in numbers, then we’ve got you covered!
Give Them Context
Adding in some practical everyday applications for Maths can be a brilliant way to get children enthused about maths. For example asking your pupils to measure ingredients for a cake and changing the quantities depending on how many they’re going to make is a fantastic way to learn more about weighing, measuring, and ratio. Plus cake is involved, which can only be good!
Using some bright and colourful progress charts on your classroom wall can be a very powerful tool to help pupils achieve. By giving your wee ones a sticker to pop on their chart not only does it create a sense of ownership over pupil’s learning, it also gives them a tangible picture of how much they’re improving and boosts their motivation for Maths.
