Think, believe, dream, dareā€¦


For this week, we are going to be learning all about numbers 16 to 20! Each day I would like you to explore a new number and send me a photo of the different ways that you can represent that number:

  • As a word
  • On a ten frame 
  • Using coins 
  • On a number track/ number line 
  • Using your hands 
  • Using objects or drawings 
  • Using tally marks 
  • Using a Part Whole model


Repeatedly showing teens numbers as 10 plus some more in different representations, including on their fingers as a pair of hands plus some more and on ten frames as a full frame and some more, will help children develop a solid understanding of numbers within 20 as they will begin to understand that the one in the number isn't actually one, but ten.
