I am a Year 3 teacher and to be honest, finding it extremely difficult to make any of the teaching of the key skills (i.e rounding, multiplying by 10, 100 etc) exciting. I am not a strong maths teacher - we have been told that we need to make the maths lesson more fun and exciting - I completely agree - but I really struggle to find ways to make practicing new skills fun. I'm probably not the only teacher, who, having taught a skill, then gives my class sheets of boring old NOW TRY THESE to have a go with. Does anyone have any ideas or is there a magical book called 'How to make the teaching of dull key skills exciting and stimulating?' Many thanks in advance for anyone's words of wisdom!!
