### A 1-meter circumference wheel for measuring distances, marked at 10-cm intervals(home-made version) :

### Slide 6:

A clinometer, for measuring the height of buildings, trees, etc (A 45 degree clinometer is a simpler version)

### Slide 7:

Number and Letter Fans For example, if a fan has nine blades, and each blade has one of the following letters:   s, t, e, a, i, m, p, r, c   Here are twenty spellings that could be tested:   cat mat pat rat tear meat cast seat steam peas pair pear praise price tease mist

### Slide 10:

Example “Literacy Dominoes” (incomplete set) The “secret” of designing successful dominoes sets is to ensure that the right-hand side of the last domino matches the left-hand side of the first domino! What ideas could these inspire?

### Slide 11:

Maths Dominoes! This example, available for purchase, is from: www.taskmasteronline.co.uk It shows “Addition Dominoes” However, dominoes can be designed for almost any level of mathematics and for almost any type of mathematical operation. This example should NOT be copied, for copyright reasons, but it may inspire creative ideas! What ideas do you have!?

### Slide 12:

Place value game! This example, available for purchase, is from: http://netstore.teaching.com.au/ This example should NOT be copied, for copyright reasons, but it may inspire creative ideas! What ideas do you have!?

### Slide 13:

Compound Word Dominoes! This example, available for purchase, is from www.taskmasteronline.co.uk I Could you design a set of compound word dominoes!? What is the key educational principle these dominoes build upon?

### Slide 14:

Maths Dice! These examples are from www.taskmasteronline.co.uk For further ideas on “Educational Games” using Maths Dice. See: www.davidsmawfield.com/resources-practitioners What ideas do you have!?

### Slide 15:

An example of a maths dice game Roll three dice. Arrange to choose a score. Play, say, five rounds. Add scores. Highest total score could be the winner Variation: lowest total score could be the winner, etc. What ideas do you have!? For more ideas, see: www.davidsmawfield.com/resources-practitioners/

### Slide 16:

A word-making game This example, available for purchase, is from: www.taskmasteronline.co.uk The idea is to make three-letter words. Incomplete words on the base board comprise two blanks and a vowel. The game cards are consonants. This example should not be copied, for copyright reasons. However, what game and game rules could you devise based on these materials? What other ideas could this game inspire?

### Slide 17:

Word Game The “Board” is made up of different nouns The playing cards are made up of different adjectives The idea is to match appropriate adjectives to different nouns What might be the rules for this game, and how could it be played? (For example, it could involve “Connect 4”: There might be two sets of cards in different colours, for each player.) What other variations can you think of?

### Slide 18:

Educational “Snakes and Ladders” This can be used for any subject, at any level. Make an appropriate pack of question cards. Question cards are placed in a pile face down. Move by throwing a dice. Land on a snake: Answer a question. Wrong answer = slide down the snake. Correct answer = stay put! Land on a ladder : Answer a question. Wrong answer = stay put! Correct answer = climb the ladder!

### Flannelboard :

Flannelboard Arguably one of the best teachings aids ever – but one that largely seems forgotten about! This is all the more unfortunate as images from magazines and the Internet are more available than ever!

### Flannelboard :

Flannelboard A small square of course glass-paper or “Velcro” (the spikey side) is glued on the back of images to create the “magnetic” effect. Use a background cloth with a strong, dark, colour. The cloth should have a woolly texture to help the images to stick.
