In nursery we have been trying really hard at counting one to one. We had our puppet friend come and count with us and he got really mixed up! When objects are in a pile, it’s really difficult to count them and sometimes we count them twice. So the children now know it’s easier to put the objects in a line and then we remember to only touch them once. Also we have learnt that the last number we say is the total number of objects that are in a set.
Next week we are counting us and we have made a bus and the children are going to put their own picture on the bus so we can add on and take away the children and then we will count how many children are on the bus!
