Activity 1

Practise counting forwards and backwards to twenty.

Ask your grown-up to say a number between 2 and 19 and say the number that comes before, and the number that comes after.

Using a resource that you can find in your house, e.g. pencils or buttons or pasta pieces - count out 20.

From the amount, count out 12.

Now partition the 12 objects into 10 and 2 (a group of 10 and a group of 2).

This is partitioning using 10s and ones.

If you add 10 and 2 together, what is the total?

Try partitioning other numbers into 10s and ones (use a number that is more than 10 and less than 20).

You could write them as addition sentences - example 10 + 2 = 12
