These children can now hold numbers in their heads without having to look at all the objects and need to learn to count on. E.g 9=4-is 10,11,12,13. It is important the second number added is no bigger than 5 while they are still learning and keeping track of numbers in their heads.
Count in 10’s, 5’s and 2’s with your children by playing a clapping game or singing aloud.
Play snakes and ladders with your child by getting them to move their counters on to the next number.
Bundle up some ice block sticks or with hair ties or rubber bands into groups of 2, 5 and 10.
Ask your child to make 30 sticks into bundles of 10 or 5. Ask them how many are left over and how many bundles are there.
Play a game with 2 dice where you get the child to add or subtract/ take away the numbers that have been rolled. E.g3+4=7
