Here we have a very straightforward couple of pages with up to 20 sweets to count. We work hard with children when they first start to count but then tend to neglect this area of counting on past ten. The sweets have been laid out in such a way that there are rows of ten. ‘Bright sparks’ may spot this and start at ten and just count the second row. ‘Burning hot’ sparks might do a quick subtraction with the rows that are nearly ten: it’s always interesting to watch how children set about tasks such as these.
There’s lots more for young children at urbrainy.com, which is rapidly becoming one of the best sites around for early years maths.
