Now that our baseline is nearly complete, we have started some focus teaching sessions. This week we are learning the numbers 4,5,6
Each and every time we introduce a new number we show our children the numeral, we introduce the Numicon piece
We then count objects to match the number, focussing on good 1:1 correspondence. The children then go and find that amount of objects.
Once this short snappy focus teaching session is complete, I will leave a basket of goodies out near my chair for children to investigate and develop further. I often find lots of them being “teacher”
How do you teach number?
It would be great to hear your ideas… Please leave a comment below x
