Plan For 2021 Now With Differentiated Maths
It feels like the end of the year is rushing up very quickly and I have to say bring it on! I will be happy to see the
end of 2020 and hopefully a much less eventful 2021.
This is our second last newsletter for 2020 and it is all about differentiating Mathematics using Blooms
Taxonomy. The blog is about the theory underpinning Bloomsmath and the worksheet spread below links to the
programs with the Whole Number activity being free for each level from Kindergarten to Year 5. The Year 6
programs should be ready for release very early next year so you can plan for your year.
levels of Bloom's Taxonomy and how these apply to Mathematics to ensure all students are working at their
optimum level while you are free to work with the students who need you most.
The New Activities this week can be seen by clicking on the spread of worksheets or cover page below
showing the Year 5 / Level 6 set of Bloomsmath resources. These are designed to allow students to progress
through to their appropriate challenge level and work with other students to solve problems for each outcome.
There are also questions at the end of each set of activities to promote discussion using the metalanguage of
mathematics and higher order thinking for all students.
The programs cover a full year worth of Mathematics and work wonderfully with Maths 'N' Movement so students
can start their Maths hour with a physical game and then concentrate on in-depth outcome based activities. This
ensures students are given a solid grounding within their grade appropriate outcome rather than racing through
the curriculum and covering outcomes from future grades before they are ready. Click on the image to access
the free activities or unlock almost 600 activities for just $65 (tax deductible) with a Bloomsmath subscription.
