The activities can either be used as whole-page printables or cut and glued into a notebook.
As many primary teachers use composition books, the activities were designed to fit their smaller pages.
The shapes to cut are simple rectangles – and students just glue them on the page.
The summative assessment was broken into smaller chunks in order to accommodate shorter attention spans.
