Why I would recommend these books…

  • Photocopiable resources – the books are photocopiable so once you purchase you can easily print the pages you need to cater for the students you are working with.
  • PDF document – this means you can download the books onto your laptop. When doing a worksheet you can display it on the interactive white board before the children start ensuring they know exactly what to do!
  • Learning support/resource teacher – these books are really brilliant for revising the basics in Maths that children need to understand. It can be difficult to source material for children who are struggling with the basics in Maths. These books are perfect for learning support/resource teachers particularly from Junior Infants to 3rd/4th class.
  • Supplementary material – the books are great for supplementary material – covering key areas in early mathematical development and also for revision!
