Wizard Worksheets are written by a teacher with a wide range of experience teaching children of all ages who experience difficulties in learning. Such children need work broken into easily understood small steps with frequent re-visiting and multi-sensory practical activities.
Wizard Worksheets contains 160 photocopiable worksheets for each year aimed at those children within a year group who are not ready for either the NNS or Booster programmes and usually have identified Special Needs in Numeracy.
These worksheets and activities link with the National Numeracy Strategy teaching programmes for each year group and help to meet the requirements of children in each year group who are not ready for Booster materials.
Children who find understanding mathematical concepts difficult, need each idea broken into smaller steps with lots of practical activities to support their learning. They often have a problem memorising facts and visualising, so find mental activities difficult. They may also need support in following more than one instruction.
The activities linked to each worksheet are introductory suggestions and can be expanded, repeated and developed according to the needs of the children. They are intended to be a guide, especially useful for teaching assistants, working under the supervision of the class teacher. The activities may take more than one session with the worksheets being completed independently or as homework.
Wizard Worksheets are available for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The packs come on CD and cost only £20 (+vat) each.
