Our Number of the Week is...

Our Number of the Week is... 1

All About the Number 1...

1) Can you count to 10 forwards and backwards?

2) Can you play ‘one more and one less’?

2) Can you play ‘one more and one less’?  1

Once the child has rolled the dice and generated a number, ask them to go and get that amount of objects from around the house (could use counters, sticks, socks etc) so that they can work it out practically. 

 

Example;

I have rolled the number 5. 

Use five socks and lay them out on the floor. 

Show them that there are 5 by counting them one-by-one.

Then, take one away. One less that 5 is ... count the socks again. One less than 5 is 4. 

Put 5 socks back. 

Add another sock. One more than 5 is .... count the socks again. One more than 5 is 6.

 

Keep repeating :) 

3) Can you ‘practice writing the number 1 using our number formation rhyme? You can also make the number using objects from around the house if you like
