# KS1, Vocabulary

**Here's a wonderful adaptation of the mathsticks** **Shape Taboo game. **Mary K., one of our mathsticks members created this for her Year 2 class. So, as she says, the calculation words were designed with "*KS1 in mind as they form part of a scheme of work about vocabulary I have just done.* **Read more »**

**Here's a couple of alternative 100-squares**; this time featuring written numbers rather than numerals. Yes, these 100 squares go from * one *to

*instead of 1 to 100. Perfect to support children getting to grips with number names.*

**This is a follow-up to our popular Calculator Activity-1.**

While that original resource focused exclusively on Addition, this one helps children develop their understanding (and accuracy) when reading written numbers and calculating with **both** addition and subtraction.

**This is a superb mathematics activity based on the game of 'Taboo'**. The focus here is on shape vocabulary.

The download contains 27 cards featuring shape related words. The game is for two players, a 'reader' and a 'guesser' The object of the game is for the 'reader' to help his/her partner (the 'guesser') to identify the correct vocabulary word on the card. The 'reader' must describe the word as clearly as possible without using any of the 'Taboo words. **Read more »**

**A game for two players** designed to focus on reinforcing the names and properties of 2D shape while also offering children an opportunity to practice counting.

The activity uses:

- The downloadable
*****Shape Cover Up board; - A set of coloured counters for each player;
- A dice.

**This calculator activity **is an extension of one which was published as part of the National Numeracy Strategy in 1999. It has a dual focus; the first one (as you might expect) is to involve the children in accurately using a calculator. The second is to engage the children in reading numerical vocabulary. **Read more »**

**This maths poster lists the first 25 square numbers.**

Like the Prime Numbers poster I added to this site last month, this is a vertical (skyscraper) format, measuring 21cm by 60cm. **Read more »**
