Over 200+ Kiwi Kids are now using these mats in schools across NZ to take charge of their learning! Now also used world-wide!
Student agency in action!
Each mat covers place value, number knowledge, basic facts, fractions and of course the appropriate strategies for addition, subtraction,multiplication and division.
How I use them:
Each student has a laminated mat on his or her desk. At the start of the year I access each child and put stickers on the skills they have mastered. From there it is easy. The children put a mark with vivid on the goal their group is working on, when they achieve it they get a sticker and I date it. When it comes time to write reports I can see the last thing they have mastered and their current goal at a glance. Report writing has never been so easy.
A super bonus is that the children can not only speak about their own goals but they are motivated to master new skills as well as being able to see what comes next. Student agency at its best!
