Starting Games, the first in series of three books of mathematical games from Spectrum written by Dave Kirkby. It was produced mainly for the primary years and those students working at National Curriculum levels one to three. This book contains forty games, each in the form of: • a photocopiable gameboard or score sheet; • a photocopiable set of rules for the game, • notes for the teacher, • the apparatus required, • possible variations of the game for follow-up and extension work. The notes for the teacher describe the game and reference it to the then National Curriculum attainment targets and levels. The content throughout focuses on number including matching; addition, place value, subtraction, money, capacity, mass and some shape work. Within each book the games are non-sequential, enabling teachers, aided by the notes provided, to make selections suited to the individual needs of their students. The apparatus required is restricted to common classroom items, mainly dice, counters and number cards. At the back of each book some photocopiable blank gameboards are provided for variations and invented games.
