This counting activity involves reading and sharing the story Elmer’s First Counting Book. Followed by a count and match the number activity using coloured squares that imitate the colourful patches on Elmer the Elephant from the book.
Small challenge table, where children find their personal challenge book and complete a different challenge each day. This one is to select a picture card and then use the puzzle blocks to make the same picture. Intense concentration and observational skills required!
2. Each activity has a talk button which the children press to find out what the challenge is. The idea is that the children can then complete this challenge independently, with each activity being specifically chosen to target an area of learning that we are currently focussing on. We find that the children need reminding to find their own challenge each day, but are then happy to sit alone and concentrate on the activity once they are there, and feel a great sense of pride on completion!
