This week we are learning how to count objects reliably. We are teaching the children to line up their objects, touch each object as they count and go slowly so they do not miss an object. Can your child count reliably to 6, 8, 10 or 20?
This week we are learning to recognise numbers. Please see if your child can spot any numbers when you are out shopping or going for a walk? Numbers between 1-10 or 1-20.
Can your child tell you what one more is than a given number. "What is one more than 9?" Work with any numbers that they are confident with.
Can you support your child to count different objects and record how many they have in different ways. For example if your child counts 4 stones, can they draw 4 circles, 4 tally lines, 4 ticks to represent the amount.
This week we are learning to add one more from a given number. Ask your child to work out one more than 8. They could use objects to count out 8, then add one more or use a number line. Ask them to place their finger on number 8 and jump forwards one more to find the answer.
Challenge! Can they do this with teen numbers?
Extra challenge! Can they find one less than a given number using the same strategies but taking one away or jumping backwards on the number line.
Number lines are in the resources section for you to print.
