We are learning about teeth and eating and were thinking about what kinds of food animals eat to get their energy.
Different animals have different teeth…why is that?

This bingo game is a great game for helping you to learn the division facts quickly.
This number space invaders game helps you work on multiplication and division facts. You also get to choose which times or division facts you are working on.
This petshop game gives you prizes for the answers you answer correctly.
Please comment on your best scores and your favourite games.
The coconut trees were leaning from the power of the wind. I saw light sand and it was extremely hot and it looked very red.
Waves hitting shore, seagulls calling , it's a wonderful day to be at the beach. Suddenly I heard a screaming sound. Oh, it was just a boy laughing about his video game. So I just carried on sunbathing. I heard a dog barking. At the sea a boy was just about to get the ball when suddenlyu he fell down a hole. His parents raced to the hole, but the boy was already gone and there were some strange footprints which looked like hands.
Haley had silky brown hair and a pink swimming costume. She was so shocked by the handprints...
Tom was strolling along the beach when he saw something but he could not tell what it was because it was night. Tom came back the next night. It was still there so he made a plan to come back the next night.

This game involves recognition of odd and even numbers and making and testing predictions. It is played in pairs.
15 items, such as beans, counters, cubes, gumnuts or acorns.
In turn, each player takes 1, 2 or 3 objects until no objects are left. The winner is the person who has an odd number of objects.
Here's another problem which gives you a chance to make different totals.
Think you know your times tables? Then try this one...Shifted Times tables
Wow! they seem very busy.
As you can see, below there is space for another entry...send me your information if you want to be included.
Are you really busy or do you wish you had more to do after school?
Do you watch T.V or play on the computer? Richie and Bua didn't mention that in their writing, but I bet they spend some time in front of a screen.
I am a very busy person! My name is
This is what I do before and after school:

Times tables are so helpful...when I go shopping and buy 7 cartons of juice which cost 15 baht each I can quickly work out how much I will need...when I sponsor someone 10 baht for each length thay swim and they swim eight lengths, I can quickly find the answer.
When you know your times tables, you can check that you are paying the right amount and getting the right amount of change!
Here are some downloadable cards which you can print and make into a game. Here are the answers. Play at home or at school.
Here are tips for the 5 x table,6 x table, 7 x table, 8 x table, 9 x table and there are many other tips too.
Don't forget that Timezattack is another way to learn, but I find that the best way is to repeat each fact and answer.

Please be ready to hand in your books on Monday 9th November.
If you know these then write the times tables you need to learn.
Have a look at the Woodlands site for some games ideas, but one of the best ways to learn is to say them, write the facts down on cards and write the answers on cards and play a matching game (use the back of a cereal packet if you don't have any other card).
Multiplication.com also has some good x games.
