This week is going to be all about counting in 2s and finding pairs. A pair is when there are 2 of something.
Start today by counting up to 20, now do it again. It’s important that you know the order the numbers come in so that you can properly work out how to count in 2s.
Count up to 20 again but this time we’re going to do a whisper and a shout… whisper number 1, shout number 2, whisper 3, shout 4 and so on up to 10. Try it again and see if you can go up to 20.
I wonder if you noticed anything about the numbers you shouted? If you only said the shouted numbers you would be counting in 2s.
Do this one more time but this time write down the numbers you shout, in a line so you can read them again after.
You now have all the numbers you need to count in 2s. Keep practising!
Here’s a song to finish todays maths so you can practise some more…
