Weekly remote learning task w/c 30th March 2020
Maths – representing numbers
· Write some numbers up to 5 or 9 (depending where your child is at) on a big piece of paper. You can decorate them and use different colour pencils, just write them big and clear. If your child is able to, they could write them with your support.
· Then, use these numbers to play the following game: Show your child a number for them to identify and then use toys and objects to collect that amount. Then, count them together aloud making sure you are counting one at a time.
· Don´t put the objects away after each number; when you have done a few, compare the groups of toys. Here are a few expressions to guide you through the activity “look at number 2 there are only 2 toys”, “2 is a small number”. “Now look at 9! Wow! There are a lot of them! 9 is a big number”.
· When showing the numeral to your child, for example, 5, don´t say “five” yourself, wait for your child to identify the number first, then initiate the counting and collecting toys process by themselves.
· Please adapt this activity to your child´s level, we want to challenge the children but also obtain success!
· You can play “teddy numbers” on TopMarks.co.uk to reinforce the concept of number and quantity and counting one to one correspondence. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/teddy-numbers
