Goals - Numeracy (Upper Primary)

PDF, Excel, Word | 58 pages|Grades: 5 - 7

A set of 121 goal cards focusing on numeracy for upper primary.

This set of goal cards are designed to help students develop numeracy skills. These goals help students to reflect upon their work and become more responsible for their own learning.

Print, laminate and stick a small magnetic strip to the back so they can be stuck on to your classroom whiteboard. Blank cards are also included for personalised goals.

Goals are included for: Number and Place Value, Fractions, Money, Patterns and Algebra, Geometric Reasoning, Shape, Location and Transformation, Data Representation and Interpretation and Chance.

Use the PDF Checklist to track all of the goals for each student.

The Excel Spreadsheet can be used to track the goals for all of your students. In the Excel spreadsheet, you can type a ‘y’ to get a green box that indicates the student has achieved that goal, an ‘n’ to indicate the child has not achieved the goal yet and a ‘w’ to indicate that the child is working toward achieving the goal.

Can be used in conjunction with: Goal Labels – Number and Place Value (Upper)Goal Labels – Fractions (Upper)Goal Labels – Money (Upper)Goal Labels – Patterns & Algebra (Upper)Goal Labels – Shape (Upper)Goal Labels – Location and Transformation (Upper)Goal Labels – Data Representation and Interpretation (Upper)Goal Labels – Chance (Upper)Goal Labels – Geometric Reasoning (Upper)
