Time management for relief teachers

This course looks at the numeracy in maths lessons and across the curriculum.

The five components of working mathematically are outlined to participants and to make planning easy, the structure of a lesson is included. Games are also discussed and demonstrated as a way of achieving high levels of student engagement in your classroom.

Students also benefit from games as they develop their fluency and reasoning skills. Picture books often have everyday maths embedded in the story and this is a way to make connections to across curriculum subjects. All resources suggested cover a range of grade levels.
