I like this numeracy display. It can be hard to get numeracy displays that engage the children. Too often maths displays are made ‘fun’ by using cartoon characters or they are totally made from bought resources. I’m sure the children enjoyed making this one. Once it was on the wall it must have provided a strong visual reminder not just of the multiplication facts but also of the underlying concept.
By the way this image came from an unidentified visitor to a new site from Mark at Teaching Ideas called
DisplayPhotos (update – see a more recent post about Teaching Photos). Rather like a small scale Classroom Displays Flickr Group the site allows people to register and upload their own images, tag them and add descriptions and comments. I joined and had a look round and there are some interesting ideas and images there. The site is fairly easy to navigate and could prove useful, especially if you can’t access Flickr from school.
