In maths, we have been busy learning everything there is to know about numbers 1-7! We have been learning to count aloud to 7, to recognise the numerals 1-7, to write the numerals as well as recognising and making shapes with 1-7 sides. We've also had some visits from our Concept Cat who has taught us about the concepts: 'after', 'same', 'different', 'more', 'less'. This will help us greatly with our number learning.
One of the most important things we have been learning to do is to count carefully. Here are our careful counting rules:
1. We say the numbers in the right order (1, 2, 3, 4)
2. We say one number for each object as we point to it
3. The last number we say is how many are there (e.g. '1 banana, 2 bananas, 3 bananas, 4 bananas... there are 4 bananas'
4. We count each number slowly
We watched Numberblock 7. Here is the episode we watched:
