Number Hunts - Numeral Recognition bundle

2 Resources
Two Powerpoint presentations that each comprise ten different scenes - each with the numbers 1-10 or 1-20 hidden within them. These have proved really successful within my Early Years setting to develop and secure numeral recognition. We often use them as Maths Starter activities and they have engaged pupils very well. Some scenes are more challenging than others, though it consistently surprises me how much better children are at spotting the numbers than adults! There are lots of different ways of using these resources to ensure appropriate pitch and challenge: *We write the numbers 1-10 or 1-20 on our class board and tick them off as we find them in the pictures. Ensuring that we search for the numbers in order has really helped to secure number sense. *We ask children to describe where the numbers are, supporting them to use positional language and to develop their speaking and listening skills, e.g. “The number 10 is next to/on top of/underneath the table”. *Children can write the numbers on their own whiteboards and work on the activity individually - this way they also get practice of writing the numerals. *We provide a checklist for children to tick them off themselves as we search for the numbers together as a whole class, supporting children to ‘match’ the numbers as we develop early number sense. *We have often found that children are inspired to go and create their own ‘number hunt’ pictures independently after our Maths sessions, which then provides lots of evidence for our Learning Journeys and ensures that learning is embedded. The presentations are also available as individual downloads in my store.
