I have been a classroom teacher and later an Assistant Principal, in both small and large schools and I was Principal of a small rural school. When I was teaching I used hands on activities as a daily part of my teaching program and I allowed students to borrow games to use at home as homework. Now that I'm retired, I've been making 'games' for families to play at home and selling these at markets. (Some of us can't give teaching away completely!)
I soon realised that home schoolers and teachers were also buying the games and, in response to frequent requests, I am now offering a choice of 3 game sizes; one suitable for home or homework, another suitable for small schools and another more suited to larger groups.
Because most schools already have a stock of regular dice and counters those are not included in the prices on this website however I am happy to give a quote with all the extras included if it is required.
I know how many hours a teacher can spend making all the teaching resources required to successfully run maths and literacy groups in the classroom. Now that I have time on my hands, let me take some of that load off you.
If you need additional information about any of the items on this list, please e-mail me and I will do my best to oblige.
All activities are printed on coloured A4 card and laminated. When pages are cut the corners are rounded to remove sharp edges. (Unless the pieces are very small.)
Games are shipped in plastic zip lock bags but may need to be permanently stored in something more sturdy, such as plastic document files, to prevent accidental damage to the bags resulting in the loss of game pieces. Provided reasonable rules are enforced during use of the games, (e.g. discourage chewing!) they should last several years.
Plastic document folders can be added to orders at additional cost but will increase postage costs.
I can print out a file label for each activity ordered that can be fixed on whatever file/packaging you will be using. I do charge extra for this service.
The label can include:-
• NSW Syllabus Reference e.g. MA2-9MG (This then gives you the level)
• Number of students
• ACARA reference (e.g. ACMMG061)
By special request, I have put games into document folders, labelled them, tabbed the files and provided a list of activities with location and syllabus reference etc. (to assist with programming,) provided roller boxes for storage and easy access, and delivered them - but I do have to charge for these services.
Please request a quote if you would like any of the above.
Any activity that is unusable, due to printing errors or other mistakes, will always be replaced.
You may use your own order form or download the price list on this site.
When ordering, please include the catalogue number, title and the size option (i.e. to suit a small or larger group) of the items you require.
Postage/freight will be added to the invoice.
If requested, your school’s or teacher’s name can be added to most items, space permitting. For example, “Property of Twin Bends Public School” or “Please return promptly to Mrs Glass.”
Please indicate clearly on the order if this is required.
