How has your week been loyal followers? Where in the world are you reading this post from?
Children in Australia are working through their first term of the year at the moment… For Kindergarten/Foundation children, they are learning their numbers and developing their ability to represent numbers as pictures, words and digits.
As I’ve discussed before in my post about Number Detectives, when we investigate number, we look closely at each number (0 to 10) one at a time, a week on each. This means we have plenty of time to learn about each number, begin to introduce children to addition and integrate number with many other aspects of beginning number like one to one correspondence (cardinality), shape, pattern and measurement.
One of the activities we complete each week is our Number Flip Books. Firstly, we do rainbow writing on the number, practising writing it over and over again. Then we make our little flip book and stick the top part in our Maths Book. Underneath each flap we write, draw, stamp or stick that number of things. We change it up each week so we aren’t doing the same thing…
Here is an example for number 4!
Think you like this idea? Luckily, I have put together a pack for you to simply print and photocopy for each student in your class each week!
