This week we are practising counting and naming numerals. Below are activities to try which will help you practise counting and matching what you count to a numeral.
Count from 1 to 20 in unison. When you say ‘five’, children wave one hand in the air. When you all say ‘ten’, they wave a second hand in the air. Then they put their hands down and continue counting. When you say, ‘fifteen’, they wave one hand in the air, and when you say ‘twenty’, they wave both hands in the air.
Repeat this, counting again to twenty in the same way.
Repeat several times.
