Monday - This week the number of the week is:
What can you say about 12? e.g It is 1 more than 11. It is 1 less than 13. Do you know anyone with a door number that is 12? Can you count 12 objects? What different groups can you make using 12 things? e.g 11 and 1, 10 and 2, 9 and 3, 8 and 4 etc Can you read the word twelve? If you go out on a walk, can you find 12 anywhere?
Tuesday - Ordering numbers to 20
Make some number cards using paper like the ones below. Cut out 20 square shapes of paper or card. Write the numbers from 1 to 20, one number on each card.
Turn the number cards over so you can't see the numbers. Choose one card and turn it over. Can you say what the number is? Find that many objects in your house. Try this a few times. Look again at the picture at the beginning of the blog - match the numbers to different objects in the picture.
Now turn all the cards back over so you can't see the numbers. Mix them all up. Can you put them in order from 1 to 20? What comes first? 1. What comes next? What comes after that? Can you go all the way to 20?
Wednesday - Comparing objects to 20
Collect 20 small objects - Try to find a mixture of different things. You will also need 2 containers or bowls.
Look carefully at your objects that you have. How can you sort them? Could you sort them by colour e.g red and not red? What about shape e.g bricks or not bricks?
Once you have sorted them, count the objects in each container. How many in each container? Which container has more/less/the same? If I put one more in the container, how many are there now?
Thursday - Exploring numbers from 11-20
Look at the ten frames below - they are called ten frames because there are 10 boxes on each page. One object goes in each square on the frame to show numbers up to 10. Two ten frames are used to show numbers up to 20. What numbers are shown on each set of 2 ten frames? You can count each spot or you can count on from 10. Touch the first ten frame say 10 then touch the spots counting on from 10 - 10, 11, 12 Use your number cards to match the numbers that are shown on the ten frames.
Challenge: You could make your own ten frames with paper. Draw 10 squares on a piece of paper and use your objects from yesterday to make numbers up to 20. Use your number cards - pick a card and put objects on the ten frames to match the number card.
Friday - Find one more than a number to 20
You will need your number cards and objects that you have been using this week.
Choose one of your number cards from your set. Make that number using your objects. Put one more object into your set, how many do you have now? Can you find the card to match the number of objects you have now? Try saying what you have done - 1 more than .... is ......
Challenge: Make some playdough.
Here is an easy recipe to make it. https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/playdough-recipe
Roll it, squish it, poke it, flatten it, squeeze it. How does it feel? Can you make an animal? A birthday cake? If you have cookie cutters, use them to cut out shapes. Plastic knives, forks and spoons can be used to cut the playdough.
