What is a Think Board?

Think boards are visual learning tools that can be used to find out the depth of your students understanding about any concept.  They can be used across the curriculum and can be quickly differentiated to meet student needs.

They can all be used at the various stages of the teaching learning & assessment process, including:

  • Identifying Prior Knowledge
  • Introducing a topic
  • Teaching a topic
  • Independent Learning
  • Study and revision
  • Post Assessment

Math Think Boards

We especially love using thinkboard templates in our math class and our kids love using them too!

They really help kids feel ‘smarter’ at math because they are not answer centered and give students the chance to demonstrate how much they know, what they need to learn next about a concept.

They are perfect for developing, exploring and practicing a wide range of mathematical skills including:

  • visualizing
  • classifying
  • organizing
  • grouping
  • sorting
