First up I have the Year 4 Australian Curriculum: Number and Algebra Teacher resource ($39.95).
The teacher resource is clearly set out, has good sized and easy to understand explanations. The BLM's are ones I will actually use in my classroom and link clearly with the curriculum.
This book covers the sub-strands of Numbers & Place Value, Fractions & Decimals, Money and Algebra. Each sub-strand contains:
-Assessment pages (ok, I really love these, they are really clear, set-out well and give the information that matches the descriptor for the sub-strand)
-Teacher Information & a list of possible Hands-On activities (um, how great is this! I really feel like the hands-on stuff is missing from resource books a lot of the time)
-Checklists to match the sub-strand (triple love!)
The New Wave Number & Algebra Student Workbook links very well with the first resource (covers the same sub-strands) and also has the content descriptor written on each page. Plus, the student workbook is one I would actually use! Even with my dislike of coloured workbooks.
I am always on the look out for good fractions & decimals resources as this is a topic I am not greatly fond of teaching. This resource contains some fantastic, clear worksheets.
This book also contains checklists for each sub-strand.
A big thank you to R.I.C. Publications for the opportunity to review these great products. Make sure you check out their other resources (like the K-3 Class Ideas Magazine which I am a huge fan of).
