Overcoming Dyscalculia and Difficulties with Number
- Ronit Bird - Teacher, London
This practical book draws on Ronit Bird’s teaching experience to create detailed strategies and teaching plans for students aged 9-16 who have difficulties with number. Activities and games are used to teach numeracy skills in these key areas: number components, bridging, multiplication, division and reasoning strategies.
New to this edition:
An updated Part I, improving the clarity and flow of the teaching ideas, including a table mapping games against specific teaching points
More activities and guidance for multiplication and division
A new Part V, consolidating new and existing teaching games in one place
4 new videos added to the online resources
This is an ideal resource for class teachers, SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) and maths subject leader, and is equally useful for teaching assistants and learning support assistants.
The underlying teaching approach in all Ronit Bird’s work is to provide the necessary concrete and practical experience in an enjoyable manner – through games and activities, not worksheets – while at the same time helping learners through the important transition between concrete and abstract calculation techniques - Jan Beechey
