Worksheet and tool generators

Some times you have students who just want to do lots of practice, so these sites will help you quickly generate worksheets to specification. It's easy to find these by Googling "math worksheet generator" - these are ones I've used and like.

Origo Stepping Stones Notes

At our primary school we have been using the Origo Stepping Stones program this year, and it is fairly complete, but occasionally asks for some resources from Origo that you may not have (I don't have a Number Box, for instance). I also think sometimes there are added extras that may be useful in engaging the students as I work through the program. These ideas are going to be collected on the Origo Stepping Stones notes page.
