This week is Maths Week Scotland. The children in the Discovery room are showing off their number recognition skills.
“We can match the pebbles with the numbers”
”what about sea shells, 1,2…6,7”
Loose parts are not just shells and pebbles, they are open ended resources meaning they can be used for anything, counting, sorting, making patterns, transient art. The list goes on.
“Put the 5 next to 4 and 7”
”Number 3 is upside down”
