Today in the Discovery Room we have had lots of fun developing our numeracy skills through use of our Numberblocks!
Firstly we practiced our number recognition skills. We were able to correctly identify the number on each card. Some of us were able to do this by looking just at the number and some of us counted the blocks.
We then used our amazing 1-1 correspondence and fine motor skills to build the correct number block for each card. It was a bit tricky clicking the blocks together but we worked together as a team and helped each other.
We were also able to recognise and name all the different colours and build a rainbow number 7!
Next we decided to challenge ourselves further to see if we could correctly build and sequence the number blocks in order. We were able to identify the numbers that came before and after and which number block was the biggest and smallest.
“I maked all the blocks1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. 10 is the biggest.”
We even used the same colours as the real number blocks!
We were having so much fun that we decided to challenge ourselves further by using the activity cards to see if we could add numbers together.
“It’s 3, 4 and 7!”
We even created our own numberblocks using our fabulous mark making skills!
