Maths time


                                                                   Today we started on  revising  'friends of 10'.
 
We rolled a large dice and made that collection and then worked out the collection that we needed to make ten.
 
We had lots of fun doing this. Some used farm animal counters and some used unifix.


We had a bit more fun and challenged ourselves to do this with accuracy and fluency.
 
Then we moved onto doubles. Again we used a large dice and used counters. It is so important to have a variety of hands on materials to choose from to show our learning and understanding.
 
We have also been working on vertical addition.

  2. This looks like so much fun! Have you thought about making a book? Blog2Print is having a sale this week. The coupon code is SUMMEREND or SUMMEREND15 to get a 15% discount. As a new teacher, I would love to read your blog in print!
