Social Skills: The games are all designed to be played with a partner learning to take turns and manage self.
Maths Literacy: Students are learning to read and follow instructions. They are learning to respond to texts presented in a variety of formats.
Number: Students are learning the counting sequence and recognising numbers to 100. They are learning to count on and back from any number within the sequence.
Developing Vocabulary: Students should be encouraged to verbalise their thinking as they play the games and count out loud. Listen for teen and ty confusions in a student’s counting sequence.
1. Going Skiing: Providing practice in counting and sequencing to 50. Practice counting on or back a small number.
2. Teddy Count: Practice counting and sequencing to 55 and counting on and back with some numbers obscured.
3. Tens Afloat: Practice counting and sequencing to 100 making the decade numbers “special” numbers. Counting on and back with some numbers obscured.
4. Round the Garden: Alternate numbers are missing on the track so students have to rely on their knowledge of the counting sequence rather than reading the numbers on the track.
