Our Pre-School Children had great fun taking part in an activity from one of our Numeracy Cards. The activity was based on Shape, Space and Measure and focused on Height. The children gathered their resources - large sheets of paper, pens and pencils, a metre ruler and a tape measure. The children were encouraged to lay down and let another child draw around them. They then used the ruler and tape measure to measure the drawing and wrote the numbers down on the top of the paper. The children then repeated this and then compared the height. They were encouraged to decided which child was taller. The children were encouraged to use language such as: measure, bigger, smaller, number names, tall, small.
Here at Busy Bees, our Numeracy Cards are used on a daily basis with our Toddlers and Pre-School children. There are a variety of activities that promote all aspects of Numeracy in small groups with the child's Key Person. Ask to see the rooms Evidence Books to see some of the fantastic activities the children enjoy.
