Here are some number songs for the children to sing along to, resources that go with these songs will be sent home. Use these resources to help your children practice counting and number skills.
As you are singing with your child, pause after each verse and help them to count how many items are left.
If your child is confident counting to ten by themselves, start to challenge them with adding and taking away.
You could ask:
How many sausages are in the pan?
How many sausages have popped?
How many sausages are there altogether?
Model writing the sum out for them e.g. if 5 sausages have popped and there are 5 in the pan you would write; 5 + 5 = __
Ask if they can finish the equation for you by counting all the sausages.
