Sets of Blocks
Stick a blue Bond Blocks Avery Label (see above) on the front of each case each box of Bond Blocks and number them. Doing this can help schools keep a record of who has which sets of blocks.
Printed Activity Boards
Classroom teachers who use Bond Blocks as Mental Maths can organise their printed copies of the A3 Activity Boards in A3 display folders or A3 files with plastic sleeves. Print the boards required for the term. Remember to print:
- 1x number of students for Individual Activity Boards. For example, 24 of each.
- Half x number of students for Pair Activity Boards. For example, 12 of each.
Store one set of activities in each sleeve. Stick the matching coloured Bond Blocks Activity Avery Label (see above) to the plastic sleeve.
Magnetic Bond Blocks
Make your Bond Blocks magnetic so they stick to whiteboards using one packet of J.Burrows Self-Adhesive Magnetic Strips (40 x 15mm – 50 pack), sold from Office Works. These magnets are strong enough and sticky enough. You only need one packet. Just peel and stick. I’ve tried several types and found these best.
- Use two strips for every Bond Block from 5 to 10, including the Empty Ten Frame Block.
- Use one strip for Blocks 2, 3 and 4.
- Cut one magnet in half for the 1 Block. I cut 1mm off each half so it doesn’t stick over the edge of the block.
The example above has an extra magnet in the middle of Block 9 and the Linear 10 Block. You only need this extra strip if you have an old whiteboard that isn’t quite as magnetic as the newer ones. This will leave you one spare magnet out of a packet of 50.
