Today you will need:
Multilink cubes or counters
Colour pencils or pens
Look at the 'Think' task. Encourage the children to count each object. How many of each object are there?
Question 1 follows on from the Discover and compares two groups of different sizes to find which has more. Question 2 moves children’s learning on a step by comparing fewer rather than more.
Question 1 : How many footballs are there? How many tennis balls are there?
Question 1 : Can you use cubes or counters to represent the
balls? Can you line them up to compare?
Question 2 : How many bears are there altogether? How
many cushions are there altogether? Question 2 : What does ‘fewer’ mean? Are there fewer
cushions or fewer bears?
Again use your ten frames to compare the objects. Can the children recognise which has more and how many more?
