  • Bond Blocks is a whole school system made up of ready-to-go, sequenced resources to build a firm foundation in addition and subtraction. The Bond Blocks Core Intervention Kit is a resource of over 100 sequenced activities to comprehensively build understanding and fluency with basic addition and subtraction including application to related pre-algebra and word problems. This resource sequentially covers all addition and subtraction content descriptors from Years 1 to 3.


The Bond Blocks Core Intervention Kit has two uses:
1) As part of a whole school approach to Mental Maths in Years 1 to 3.
2) As an Intervention Support System for students in Years 1-6 who count to add and subtract. The Bond Block Test is used for placement and monitoring.

Every activity is competed on one, reusable A3 board, by pairs/individuals, is modelled in a short video and has online teacher notes. Have a look at the activity notes and videos at bondblock.com

New to the system in 2022 are the Kindy and Pre-Primary Bond Block resources:

  • Counting to 10 with Bond Blocks: Pre-Foundation 
  • Counting to 20 with Bond Blocks: Foundation 

These two resources build the pre-requisite skills required for the Bond Blocks Core Intervention Kit.

Come and join Narelle for an interactive session exploring the resources and theory underpinning them.
