Counting On Ice Creams

On Wednesday we learnt about counting on in maths. We used jelly ice cream cones, two dice and our pencils.

We worked with the person sitting next to us.

First we rolled both of the dice, one had dots on it and the other had numbers.

Next we modelled our plus sum with our ice cream cones, the ice cream cones matched the dots on the dot dice.

Then we looked at the number dice to get our starting number before we counted on the ice cream cones.

In our books we wrote down the sums.

This activity was lots of fun because we liked eating the lolly ice creams at the end!
