Counting at home

Healthy snack

Still image for this video

Whilst your child is working from home there are lots of opportunities where they could practise their counting. I’ve made myself a health snack and have recorded a video demonstrating how we teach counting out at school. I am using the terminology one more and one less when adding to the number sentence. We say that we want to find how many there are altogether, when finding the total.


Food is a great resource to use when teaching counting, as it makes it a bit more exciting and feel a little less like learning (it may also help any fussy eaters try some new foods!)
