How often do you just use google forms for gathering information or a survey?
There are actually so many different ways you can really utilise and make learning interesting with google apps - especially google forms. Check out my most recent website post showing you how you can use google forms to create your own adventure story.
This post will quickly show you how you can create your own exit slip or interactive practice form with maths and your times tables! Students could use this as a follow up activity, practice time activity or exit slip to reinforce their learning that is done with the teacher.
To begin with I chose a video for students to practice their 5 times tables before beginning the questions. When ready they can click next.
You then create each question that you would like as a new section. You use the multiple choice feature and fill in the answer/wrong answers that can be chosen from. Once you have done this then you need to turn on the 'go to next section based on answer' feature underneath each section.
Once you have turned on the feature, it will show a drop down box of all the options and you can then choose where you want the question to go. This will then take your students to either the next question, or a quick video that will show them how to work it out. I create quick seesaw videos showing my working out on how to figure out the question.
These google forms can be as short, long or complicated as you like or have time to make. But these are great fun and an engaging way to get students involved.
Have a go at my 5 times tables google form here!

I always love using technology in engaging ways throughout all my lessons. One great app that integrates devices in a collaborative yet exciting way is Kahoot!
Kahoot is a hands on, engaging and interactive app/website that provides game based quizzes for students to play. The teacher (or student) sets up the game and students join using a pin. They can play in individual mode or team mode. Students can choose a nickname or team name and are ready to play!
Today's sunday spotlight is a quick video showing how you can use exit slips in your class. These are a great end of lesson way for students (and the teacher) to view how the student found the learning and check if they need some more support.
There is also a self-reflection face at the bottom for students to fill in. This provides further insight into the lesson and how they found it.
I use these for maths at the moment and have some pre-made (like the video example) with some questions linked into their learning outcomes. I also have blank ones where I will hand write the learning intention on and have students just write their own evidence on the maths exit slip dependent on the lesson activities.
You can create your own exit slips very easily, or use my templates! Find them both below!
Maths Exit Slips
Maths Exit Slips
Maths exit slips are a great way to get students to reflect on their learning, whilst showing their working out. Students can use these in group time, after group work or independently to reflect on topics or areas of study you do in maths.
I use mine to align with each PR1ME chapter so I can get a feel for how students are working through with the topics.
These exit slips have:
-show your working
-smiley face reflection
There are also two types of exit slips.
Make your own Maths Exit Slip
Make your own Maths Exit Slip
This is an interactive version of my maths exit slip where you can add your own activity to complete and learning intention. I have mine set up to have a space for sharing their learning in the middle and have the learning intention on the right hand side. This resource allows you to add your own text boxes and learning intentions to fit your class needs.
This resource will be a pdf with the link to the google drawings resource. You will be able to make a copy of the template to add your own things into it.
On the weekend I was fortunate to attend the annual Maths Conference in Auckland led by the Maths Association. This is always a great opportunity to learn from others and hear some new ideas when implementing maths in class. This maths conference had me leaving with two main ideas that I want to share with you.
I really wanted to get more of a gauge on how students are going in their learning so created this blank template to go alongside any lesson. I also created specific exit slips for our PR1ME levels but these are based on the 1A and 1B books.
Each exit slip has a space for their name, date, show their working, I can space (for the learning intention) and then a reflection smiley face.
I will have students attach these to their books (if they are doing this after a follow up) or once working with me.
I really love the potential this can have and can't wait to report back with more information once I have been using this a bit more!

For the past few years I have created templates that my students (and others across the world) have used for different purposes in learning. Number knowledge, addition, subtraction, spelling practice, word of the week and more! I still have them in seperate slides but really wanted to find a way of making it easier for others to access.
So i put them together in one place >> bit.ly/mrspriestleyictseesawlibrary

This concept is based off something I saw online, but this resource has really grown over the last week to include so many more resources than when it was first developed!
This resource comes with:
-charts explaining each concept with pre-made pictures
-blank charts for you to add your own pictures
-tumble board pictures
-anchor charts for each concept
This resource also comes with some additional worksheets and activities that I have integrated into this PRISM Maths Concept.
-problem solving thinking frames
-number of the week chart
-missing numbers activities
-signs for boxes
Check out my video below walking you through the resource pack!
So getting ready for the school year is a hard process that involves so many things you want to do, complete and use! It really can be difficult to cull it down to things you want to try, and should try. I was 100% fixed on the idea of using Daily 3 in Maths this year. But after a big think, I actually changed my mind and developed my own Maths concept based on something I came across online.
An acronym for five different stations or activities students will/can complete in Maths Time.
P - Practise by myself
R - Ready with a buddy
I - I can use technology
S - Solve in book
M - Manipulative exploration
I created each part of the PRISM maths concepts as anchor charts for students to view and see exactly what activities can be used. Today I introduced it in class and the students loved being able to refer back to the charts to help them make choices.
You can download this resource to use in your classroom too! It comes with my anchor charts that explain each step, my resources that I have mentioned in the pictures (number of the week chart, missing numbers activity, signs for games box and problem solving charts).
