Target Board CardsTarget Boards are a great fun way for your class to practice mental and oral maths. Here are some samplesof Number Vision: Target Board cards I created for my 3rd and 4th classes. Each target card has a collectionof numbers on a 4x4 grid and a list of questions and suggestions for pupils to carry out using the target boardin question. These are just sample questions and the teacher or pupils can use their own questions also.These cards have been designed to help students in developing an understanding of mathematical conceptssuch as place value, finding numbers, decimals, fractions, measure (weight, time, length and capacity) etc.Target boards are a fun and versatile way of practicing arithmetic and the pupils won’t even realise they areworking!The target cards can be a teacher led activity using one card displayed on the whiteboard or pupils can haveindividual different target cards for games such as bingo. The target cards activities can also be used in pairsand small groups. It is important to develop and reinforce mathematical vocabulary through different stylesof questioning, such as open and closed questions (see examples below). Focus on one question at a time.Questioning:Closed questions:1. What is 2 3 4?2. What is the total of ?3. What is the total of the middle columnOpen questions:1. Find 2 numbers with a different of 2. Find 2 numbers with a sum of Sample questionsFind The smallest/ biggest numbersA number that rounds to A number greater than A number smaller than A number in the 2 times tablesA multiple of 4A factor of 10% of ½ of , ¾ of A square numberAn odd/ even number Julieanne Devlin, 2020 A number one more than 2 numbers with the product of A number with the digits Two numbers that have a difference of Find 2 numbers with the sum of A prime numberA number between 40 and 60 with a digitsum of Find the number in the third row and thirdcolumnFind two numbers where one is half theotherwww.juileannedevlin.comNumber Vision: Target Cards

Target card activities: Blank Target card: There is a blank target card so that teachers/ pupils can create their own targetcard for class discussion based on the maths strand being taught in class, or copy the numbers froman existing target card. Target card practice: After the pupils are familiar with the target card questions and carried out a fewwhole class activities, the teacher can assign a set time for target card practice each week. E.g.Target Day Thursday. Teacher can give a target card to each pair of pupils as the starting activity orthe concluding activity of their maths lesson for that day. It could be an activity they do at the verybeginning or end of the school day. The teacher can find a time that suits his/ her classroom best. ‘Early finishers’ activity: Once the pupils are familiar with the target card questions, they are aperfect maths activity for pupils who are finished their assignments early. Each set of ten cards focuson specific questions which are ideal for pupils to reinforce and practice.Target Card 1: Number1. Find an odd number36 18 19 2971 89 20 2749 62 51 1410 82 76 602. Find an even number3. Find two numbers with a total above 1004. Find multiples of 25. Find a number that rounds to 806. Sequence the numbers in the second row7. Add the first number in the first columnand the last number in the last column.8. Take away the smallest number in thesecond row from the largest number in thesecond row9. Find two numbers with a sum of 10010. Round the numbers in the last row to thenearest ten and add them together11. Find two numbers where one is half ofthe other.
