Before you begin: Resourcing

As Bond Blocks has two uses, the resources you will require vary based on your needs (Tier 1 Class Teaching vs. Tier 2 & 3 Intervention)

Step 1: Plug in your Bond Blocks USB

The Bond Blocks Counting to 10 & 20 USB contains everything you will need

Making a copy to the School Intranet is recommended. Make sure you also write down your purchasing email / order details, for ease of updating in the future.

Step 2: Books and Planners

The USB contains the books and planners. Many of them are mirrored on the website too for ease of use.

If you are using the kit for Tier 1 Class teaching, see the Tier 1 Implementation part of the book. If you are using the Book for Tier 2 and 3 Intervention, see the Tier 2 & 3 Intervention section.

For curriculum, see the curriculum page.

Step 3: Professional Learning

The USB contains the 100-minute Level 1 Professional Learning you need for this Kit.

This will get you ready to use the Bond Blocks Counting materials. Additional PL can be undertaken at levels 2 and 3.
