Maths Rotations

Over the last few weeks we have been working really hard to learn our numbers. We started by working on numbers 1-5 and in the last week of so we have extended this to cover 1-10. On Thursday and Friday we ran some exciting maths rotations to help us learn these numbers.

On Thursday there were 5 different activities that we worked on, where we spent around 5 minutes working at each table.

We used the ipads to help us with our counting, we built unifix towers to match numbers on a placemat, we counted objects on a card and put a peg on the correct number, we made numbers out of playdough and we put the numbers 1-10 in oder to complete a transport puzzle.

Have a look at the slideshow below to see what we got up to!

On Friday we completed four different activities, spending around 8 minutes at each table. We counted the correct number of worms to match the birds nest, put the correct number of counters into the labelled patty pans, threaded the right number of beads onto the matching pipecleaner and matched the transport cards to the correct numbers.

Have a look at the slideshow below to see what we got up to!

What was your favourite activity from each day?

Do you know of any other games that will help us learn our numbers 1-10?

Maths Online and Sunshine Classics

We have been lucky enough at our school to have access to the wonderful world of Maths Online. This is a fantastic website where your child will be able to practise maths concepts taught at school. Each lesson contains a short video demonstration and is followed by some questions to help them practice what they have learnt.

It would be fantastic if you could explore this site with your child. They have passwords for this in the back of their reading goal books (NOTE: THESE BOOKS SHOULD STAY IN THEIR BOOK BAGS). The Prep curriculum on this site is labelled KINDERGARTEN so please have them choose lessons and activities from this section.

Today they explored this site with their buddies. They also explored Sunshine Classics with their buddy. You should have received a note about this earlier in the year. Their passwords are also in the back of their reading goal books just in case you have misplaced the note. It is really important that children read the SAME book AGAIN and AGAIN (I bet they have seen their favourite movie more than once). Sunshine Classics also provides them with the opportunity to practice letter names, sounds and letter formation.

Both of these sites are extremely worthwhile!

I will also pop links to both of these sites on the Websites for Kids Pages.

Have a look at the slideshow of the children working with their buddies today.

I would love to know what you think of each of the websites. Leave me a comment telling me what you think.
