Numeracy in Tasneem (Yr 0-3):
Our Math programmes focus heavily on Number knowledge and strategies, student look at identifying numbers and adding/subtracting numbers. We also explore different strand areas such as measurement, statistics and geometry. Numeracy is integrated into our daily programs e.g. skip counting how many students are at school. Students are given many opportunities to problem solve and use their number knowledge. Classes have fun resources and hands on games that reinforce knowledge taught in small groups (guided by the teacher) and whole class teaching. We use our classroom TVs to complete fun activities on Mathseeds/Mathletics which align with the NZ curriculum.
