Peg Calendar 01

peg_calendar_01This seasonal peg maths resource is aimed at pupils in middle classes or SEN pupils. It is based on the pupil’s ability to read the calendar. It contains a one-month calendar for a December, followed by twelve question cards based on the calendar. The pupil reads the question on the left of each card (or a teacher/SNA may read it to them) followed by the three possible answers on the right of the card. They then place a clothes peg on the answer that they think is correct.

Christmas Ribbon Pairs

In this seasonal maths activity from the TES iBoard website, pupils are asked to choose the pairs of ribbons, using length, that will wrap each present. This is a good activity for teaching measurement terminology: long, longer, longest; short, shorter, shortest.
