Mabore Lekalakala is permanently employed as a qualified educator at Toronto Primary School, Limpopo Province, South Africa: "Motivation always starts with self; I cannot motivate if I’m not motivated. Self-motivation is what drives me, hence I see teaching as an open entity. I see myself and learners as people in a journey. I am motivated and motivate learners to continue with the journey until the destination is reached. They should know what they want to achieve in life no matter the paths they travel, places they pass, challenges met, etc. I see these as small journeys within the long journey i.e. journey of journeys. Self-motivation is the weapon I would like my students to carry throughout their lives.

Contextualised Games to learn Mathematics

In this project, learners created their own contextualized games after  multiplication lessons . As a starting point, all learners' games were accepted no matter how simple the Maths in it was.

Geogebra for Interactive Mathematics Learning

To demonstrate Mathematics to learners is sometimes a hectic process more especially for 2 digit numbers on-wards, fractions, etc.  With Geogebra, Mathematics teachers do not need to carry thousands and thousands of stones/bottle tops and to keep cutting objects to demonstrate the reality of Mathematics. Check out the Geogebra worksheets below. Try moving the black/red slider and see the numbers and how they increase and decrease.

Rounding off Numbers – my first sway

This rounding off Sway was created for both learners and educators. It will save Teachers and MIE Experts who choose to use it in their classrooms time during planning as they will simply modify it to suit their learner’s developmental levels, abilities and contexts. It could be used for lesson introduction, reinforcement of what was taught and revision prior to assessment. Learners could access and use it individually, in pairs or in group to master the rules and facts of rounding off.Visit the author's original post
