How does Freckle fit into my maths class?

Freckle has many different types of maths practice to help you meet the needs of your pupils. Here are just a few suggestions on how to fit Freckle into different classroom settings. Remember, you know your pupils best, so feel free to adapt Freckle to work with your class.

Independent Practice

Looking for ways to have your pupils build their maths skills? You can have pupils practise in Adaptive Practice on Freckle on their own. Pupils can select a maths domain and then Freckle will adapt to provide them with content at their own level.

Would you rather have pupils practise a certain objective? You can assign them a Targeted Practice Task about a specific skill or objective.

In this example, the Length and Height Problems objective has been selected. Problems for the objective are displayed on the right.

Are you a younger years teacher? Freckle offers even more independent practice modes for early learners. Have your pupils try out Number Basics to build their number sense and foundational maths skills or Number Facts to build their conceptual understanding of addition and subtraction.

Small Groups

Freckle is ideal for small group work. Try creating small groups based on the Freckle Class Grouping Report to ensure that pupils are working with peers at a similar level. You can assign specific skills and objectives based on this report too!

Pupils in a class are grouped according to their levels; each group can have objectives to work on assigned to it. Pupils who have no baseline are all in the same group.

If you do not have computers for your whole class, try using Adaptive Printables to get a targeted worksheet for each pupil or group of pupils.

Whole Class

Do you want to assess class mastery of a new concept or objective? Try assigning a 3–5 question exit ticket to your whole class.

Freckle's Inquiry-Based Lessons (or IBLs) are a great way to apply maths to real-world concepts and settings. Each lesson is based on a objective, has whole group videos and review questions and can last anywhere from 2 to 5 days.

Homework

Are you spending a lot of time finding meaningful homework for your pupils? Try using Freckle to ensure that all pupils are practising at home at their own level! You can have them use Freckle on their devices at home by logging in and practising a specific domain for a certain amount of time. Or, you can assign them a targeted practice task to complete at home.

Worried about your pupils' access to devices at home? Try using Printables to print out class-wide or individualised worksheets for pupils to do at home instead.
