Super Subitising

(0)
The theorist Piaget was the first person to define the term subitising as the ability to instantly recognise the number of objects in a small group without needing to count them. This simple game helps children to learn this key skill. Take the pattern for the number three on a dice, children can recognise that this represents the value of three even if they can’t read the number ‘3’. Children can also see numbers within numbers using dot patters. For example, they can see the numbers two and one within three. When we played this game, children took turns to choose a counter and match it to the number pattern. It proved to be very popular!

Subitising Valentine's Style

(0)
Created for Valentine’s day, but can be used any time. Match the two halves of a broken heart using the written number and a dot (heart) pattern. Differentiate by printing on different coloured piece of paper for each page or the same coloured paper for more challenge.

Number matching Valentine's style

(0)
Repair broken hearts by matching the number on each half. Written in two different fonts, it helps children to recognise and read numbers when written in different ways. Can be printed on a different colour for each page for differentiation, print on the same colour paper for greater challenge.

Ladybird Counting Tins Numbers 0-5 (early numeracy resource)

(0)
I created these tins for use in my former nursery where they were enjoyed by children aged 2.5 years to school age. On one side are the ladybirds with 0 - 5 spots and on the reverse the number is written. The tins were left on one of the radiators and the children accessed them when they chose. Sometimes I would find some very curious things in the counting boxes but more often than not the quantity would match the number of spots on the ladybird.

Memory/Snap Game Using Shape and Colour

(0)
I work as an SEN assistant and am employed to work one-to-one with a three year old child who has global developmental delay. Whilst she has very limited verbal communication, I have discovered that she is great at playing memory and enjoys playing the game. We have been focusing more recently on colour and shape so I have created this memory game to specifically support her learning. The game consists of 32 colour cards. The shapes are square, circle, triangle and star printed in pairs in each of four colours: red, blue, yellow and green. I do not play the game using all 32 cards and currently use either all of one particular shape in all of the colour variations or one of each shape in different colours. She now recognises the four different shapes. But you can adapt the game to play in any way which you see fit. Because the game uses pairs of cards it can be played either as memory or snap. I will shortly be publishing a black and white version of this game to support those children who work better using this colour scheme.

Big Money!

Coins for early maths skills development. Just print out and stick the appropriate ‘head to tail’ and laminate. It may not feel like the real thing but they look the same albeit on a bigger scale.
