Teen Numbers Friday Challenge

Still image for this video
Get the family involved in today's maths challenge!

In the video I talk about using the numicon to help finding 1 more or 1 less than a number but you can use absolutely anything for this. Pieces of lego, dried beans, buttons, leaves are all good alternatives to the numicon and they will help with your child's 1:1 counting.

When I am referring to a quicker way to count in the video, I am talking about putting the largest number in your head and counting on rather than counting from 1.

As always, let me know how your child get's on with this activity on tapestry.
All the best,
Miss Heafford
