Think board templates and graphic organisers are great teaching tools that will help your students build deeper levels of understanding in a wide range of concepts.
When teaching numeracy help your students, understand maths concepts with our maths think board templates, and to classify, organise, group and sort ideas and communicate their understanding more effectively.
Maths activities using these tools help to guide learners’ thinking, helping them to construct their own understandings and build upon their knowledge by visualising the concept they are learning. Think boards and graphic organisers are some of the most effective visual learning strategies for your students and they can be used across the curriculum to demonstrate and enhance learning and understanding content.
Some organisers are more appropriate to different learning process than others, for example: collecting information, comparing and contrasting, developing ideas, sequencing information, summarising and extending thinking and learning. Some are more relevant to different subjects and topics than others. They can all be used at the various stages of the teaching learning & assessment process, including:
- Prior Knowledge
- Introducing a topic
- Teaching a topic
- Independent Learning
- Study and revision
