  • Mental Arithmetic Book 2

    TR Goddard

    Product Code: AKUSN
    Paperback
    Mental Arithmetic is a highly differentiated, progressive series of books, proven to raise children's attainment (alone or in conjunction with the I Can Do Teacher's Guide which explains how to use the books as a scheme of work in schools). The series is based on ability (rather than age cohorts) so that books can be matched to the needs of every child (including supporting transition from KS1 to KS2 and KS2 to KS3). The books are also assessment-linked so that children can record their own progress and see their achievement build over time. Each book uses the same method of practising the 4 basic number operations (to keep skills sharp) and challenging children to do more complex one- and two-step problems involving logical thinking and application of knowledge previously introduced. Book 2 includes: multiplication and division with remainders, time and measures, shapes, angles and compass points.

    Product Code: AGMND
    Other
    Every class includes a number of pupils whose learning needs are greater than, or different from, those of the rest of the class. All teachers should be able to identify targets to use as the baseline for intervention and to help those children to make appropriate progress in small steps so as to feel a sense of achievement. However, many teachers in mainstream primary schools don't know what the next 'target' should be. They know what the child can't do, but they often don't know how to express that as a target. This second title in a powerful new series of practical books will support SENCos and mainstream primary school teachers in thinking about what their SEN pupils can do and deciding on the next steps. It offers a system for setting and monitoring targets which can replace or complement IEPs. Suggestions for strategies and activities for achieving targets are included throughout. * Each book comes with a CD with photocopiable material, including targets pages and Records of Progress templates. Target Ladders: Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties addresses six key aspects of BESD: Coping in the classroom; Unstructured times; Controlling emotions; Taking responsibility; Social interactions; Transitions. Helpful checklists and practical advice for creating BESD-friendly classrooms make this an ideal practical resource for the busy primary teacher. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Differentiating for Inclusion series is designed to narrow the gap between children with SEN and their peers. Books in this series offer teachers helpful guidance in identifying both what children can already do and what specific targets they need support in achieving. The positive approach of structured small-steps targets, together with activities for teaching these, will ensure that children with SEN make accelerated progress. The books are all written by experienced practitioners.
