Counting in 2s, 5s and 10s

Wednesday 22 May 2024

Over the last couple of weeks, 1A have been concentrating hard on perfecting their counting skills. We have worked practically, grouping resources into groups of 2s, 5s and 10s and then counting to find the total. We then talk about how many equal groups there are and wrote the calculation to represent our work.

Help at home: When walking down the road, you could look at house numbers and count along in 2s with them. Are they counting in 2s with even or odd numbers? How many 2s are in that number? You could also look at speed limit road signs and talk about how many 10s are in that number.
