Maths - Key Stage 1 (5-7 year olds)
Shape, Position and Movement
Shape Patterns is a sequencing game where children from 3 to 8 years of age need to complete the pattern of different coloured 2D shapes. Three levels of difficulty.
Symmetry matching game involving mirroring pictures, shapes and patterns along lines of symmetry.
2D Shapes Sorting Using Carroll Diagrams
Sort 2D shapes on Carroll diagrams. There are four levels of difficulty and sorting is by two variable criteria. Squares are classed as rectangles as they are special case rectangles.
Sort the pictures, shapes and letters into symmetrical and not symmetrical sets.
A teaching resource for demonstrating symmetry on IWBs and iPads.
A wonderful teaching resource for exploring shapes. Choose from two sizes of geoboard and stretch out the bands to make your shapes. Ipad friendly.
A teaching tool which shows how to use coordinates in one, two, or three quadrants. Drag the markers around and their respective coordinates will be updates.
A fabulous teaching aid and learning game site on areas, perimeter and fractions of shapes. You can toggle between one or two display areas which is useful if you want to compare different shapes.
This resource from Mathsframe allows you to use a marker to identify the coordinates of points on different grids. You can mark points and draw lines and shapes in either 1, 2 or 4 quadrants.
A teacher demonstration tool to show how shapes or combinations of shapes tesselate. Shapes can be dragged and rotated.
Interactive Teaching Program on Area
This interactive teaching tool can be used in a variety of mathematical contexts such as multiplication arrays, finding different shapes with the same area, nets and more. It is useful because there are different backgrounds such as dots.
Click on the turning man to see him make a quarter turn, half turn, three-quarters turn and whole turn. This resource is a useful teaching aid in full-screen mode for demonstrating turns.
