Start today’s lesson with LOTS of counting forwards and backwards using the splat square. Sing the counting song. Stop where you don’t know the number which comes next. Can you reach 30 today? Challenge: count backwards from 20 to 0.
Go through the learning Powerpoint (or video lesson), stop where prompted and direct your child to undertake tasks on their worksheet. Choose the difficulty level worksheet for your child. Use objects around your house to make groups of objects (sweets, teddies, crayons). Use the mathematical language of ‘greater than’, ‘less than than’ and ‘equal to’. When comparing groups of objects, use the =, >, < cards and use the mathematical language/stem sentences, for example: 5 is greater than 4; 5> 4 .
