Primary teachers are Geniuses — or is that “Genii”?
They are able to take the traditional view of Easter — church attendance, hot cross buns, Easter Eggs, holidays — as an ideal structure in which to invent heaps of maths questions that have a natural interest — a natural intrigue — to the students in their care.
And that’s what WE do, here at The Education Shop.
Make maths meaningful! (Just dig that alliteration!)
But if teachers would like a shortcut, they might like to check out our 3-week freebie trial worksheet offer. Just go to http://www.EdShop.net.au and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.
Go on! Do yourself a favour! That’s http://www.EdShop.net.au
Who would have thought that Shane Warne’s baked beans habits would make a great Maths question for primary students?
But they did!
And they do!
Here it is . . . the BIG QUESTION . . .
“Aussie cricketer Shane Warne had 1,900 tins of baked beans flown in and addressed to him personally in India in 1998. (But they weren’t ALL just for him!) If each tin cost 80 cents, what was the total value of all those cans of baked beans?”
And there are HEAPS MORE topical, FUN maths questions where that one came from.
For an OBLIGATION-FREE 3-WEEK TRIAL SUBS., go to http://www.EdShop.net.au and ENJOY the fun, and the maths success, that we bring to that all-important subject — maths!
Go on, give it a go. www.Edshop.net.au

Loads more where these came from.

Yep! Some kids HATE maths.
No surprise there!
Every primary teacher has seen it! THAT LOOK that covers the face when it’s Maths Time!
(There should be an EMOTICON for that look!)
Anyway, the time has come to replace THAT look with a look of POSITIVE INTEREST and OPTIMISM and ENTHUSIASM in maths lessons.
And . . . here’s one way. Just one! But it works! FRESHLY EVERY SCHOOL WEEK!
It’s not JUST maths, either! It involves reading comprehension, usually a little discussion with a classmate or teacher, and an interest-packed Maths exercise that’s FUN, topical, full of interest, and teaches HEAPS about how useful Maths is in everyday life.
AND . . . you can try it out for 3 weeks — totally free of cost or obligation.
Go on, give it a go. Chat about it at school with your teacher friends, your Principal, the students in your class.
Try it out as a lesson-starter. Or as ready-made HOMEWORK SHEETS.
MANY teachers have visited! As have many schools! And they’re ecstatic!

Back in the “olden days”, the Teachers’ Union used to give some sage advice to teachers just starting a new year in the classroom.
The advice was especially pertinent to teachers of Infant classes, but in reality applies to all primary school teachers everywhere.
And the advice is simple . . .
When a child gets home at the end of that first school day, the first question a parent will ask is, “What did you learn today?”
So . . .
EVERY TEACHER should ensure that the first day at school includes a song, a poem, a joke, a limerick, a simple maths fact — ANYTHING that will PROVE to a loving parent that school is a great place of learning.
And if you happen to be a bit short of ideas, then go to our website at http://www.Edshop.net.au and request our FREE 3-week maths worksheet trial, which we’ll deliver pronto to you via email.
Remember, first impressions are crucial! Make them GREAT impressions.
Have a GREAT first day at school this year — 2016!
And what better way to do it than have a worthwhile, interest-packed Maths lesson first up!
Well, EVERY teacher brings to the classroom their own approaches, their own skills, their own personality.
But sometimes, just sometimes, the teacher needs a bit of a new idea, just to get the class “ticking all the boxes”, as it were.
So, here’s the place.
