Number Work

Hide & Find:   this game can be played in many different ways
  • hide large number cards around your outdoor area
  • ask the children to find 1 number card each and return, you can then ask them questions about their number or to tell you something about their number
  • ask the children to find a number that is less than or greater than
  • ask the children to find a number that has a specific number units/tens
  • peg up the cards onto a washing line in ascending/descending order
Hide & Find Dominoes:
  • hide dominoes (I use large foam ones)
  • on return ask children to stand up if they have more than 5 spots on their domino
  • balance on one leg if you have less than 4 spots

Hide & Find Treasure:
  • hide treasure of any sort 
  • when the children return ask them to count how many pieces they have found (extend by counting in 2's or 5's)
  • can they estimate how much treasure they have before counting
  • who has the most/least?
  • if you give one of your pieces away, how much will you have?
  • how can we sort our treasure (colour, size, shape)

Hundred Square

  • get the children to chalk out a hundred square
  • use your painted hundred square or a giant hundred square mat
  • ask the children to cover the even numbers with red bean bags
  • find all the multiples of 3, 5, 10 etc
