In Maths this week we are going to be exploring number recognition and number formation. All the activities set can be done with numbers 0-15, 0-10 or 0-20. Start by showing your child each number to 10 in a random order. Can they tell you what the number is? If they know all the numbers to 10 repeat with numbers to 20. If they find numbers 0-10 challenging use these numbers throughout the week with the following activities.
Counting and number recognition
Show children a number ask them to find that many socks, shoes, teddy bears or spoons. Make
it into a race, who's the quickest to get 5 bricks?

Introducing teen numbers
Each day we will be introducing the teen numbers.
Monday 11 and 12
Tuesday 13 and 14
Wednesday 15 and 16
Thursday 17 and 18
Friday, 19 and 20.
It is important when exploring these numbers children have a good understanding that,
11 is one 10 and a 1 one.
12 is one 10 and a 2 ones.
We will be doing this by using bricks to build a towers. We will get 10 blue bricks and 1 red brick to show the number.
