217. My Learning Wall

Last week I responded to a request on Twitter from @missradders for people to share their wall display ideas. I tweeted a picture of my ‘Learning Wall’, which is a collection of the best ideas from other teachers from this year. I was surprised by the number of teachers who liked it and wanted to know what was on there. So here you go – my ‘Learning Wall’ with interactive links to where all the ideas and resources came from. If you hover your mouse over the image hotspots will appear. It is made using the ThingLink website, using a free teacher subscription.

56. Hundreds game

I’m loving this simple game for ipads and iphones. All you have to do is make 100 by tapping circles – it’s easy to learn, but every level brings a new challenge. This review on YouTube demonstrates the game:

Hundreds review

My six year old picked up how to play in moments. She commented that it helps her to practise counting and adding. It also increases spatial awareness and moves on to negative numbers.

If you have an ipad in your classroom it would make a nice stand-alone activity; more than one ipad and you could race each other to reach a specified level. If you have ipad/projector connectivity, it could be a whole class starter. Download Hundreds (cost was £2.99 at time of posting).

‘Hundreds’ has been ‘App of the day/week’ in several publications, within weeks of it’s release.

I’m now looking for an equivalent game for a SMARTboard. Any suggestions, please let me know by leaving a comment.
