Created by @allaboutearlyyears aimed for children 3-4 years old 2020-2021. Aimed to be flexible through out the year with the children’s interests.
Notes taken from ‘personal and professional development’ seminar during the Nursery World Show.
Notes taken during an Early Years confence called ‘A spotlight on ASD’. Hopefully they can be of use for someone.
Want to know more about schema’s? How children learn and how you can promote them in a positive way?
Editable number mats using a number block in the middle and using objects or draw different ways to represent that number. eg. 1 -one - I (tally chart) - dice - fingers - objects etc. Made by @allaboutearlyyears
Editable word mats made using alphablocks. Read the CVC word (some words also using digraphs) and either write the word underneath or use magnetic letters to make the word. This document is editable, so lots of new words can be made! (I tried to use all single letters and a few digraphs too :) Made by @allaboutearlyyears
An editable activity using numberblocks characters and use objects, fingerprints or another way to represent the number. To support a child’s understanding of early mathematics. Made by @allaboutearlyyears
An editable activity using 2 dice to roll 2 numbers (1-6), then make it numbers (using objects), find the total (circle it) and write out the number sentence. To support a child’s understanding of early mathematics. These workmats could also be edited to include subtraction too. Made by @allaboutearlyyears
An editable activity using base 2D shapes to recognise it (What shape is it?), make the shape (using objects or loose parts) and then independently draw it - to support a child’s understanding of early mathematics. These workmats could also be edited to overwrite the shape instead. Made by @allaboutearlyyears
An editable activity using numbers 1-10 to recognise the numeral, make the number (using objects) and then independently write it - to support a child’s understanding of early mathematics. These workmats could also be edited to overwrite the number instead. Made by @allaboutearlyyears
An explanation what subsisting is and how to introduce it to children in the Early Years. Ideas of games and tips when making your own. Made by @allaboutearlyyears
A explanation of the principles of counting. What children will show if they understand them or what they show if they can understand them yet. Get a better understand of maths in the early years and what it truly means when children can count. Made by @allaboutearlyyears
A matching game (farm, sea and insects). Originally made for an intervention or small group work. Print 2 copies, 1 as a board and 1 to match - then change to abstract animals (physical animal, which may be different colours to see if these can be matched). Made by @allaboutearlyyears
A simple activity for shape matching, addressing the mis-conception of different size shapes are still the same shape or a different way around is still the same. Early Maths. Made by @allaboutearlyyears
