Learning how to count and order numbers is a significant learning outcome for junior primary students. The early stages of learning to count can include knowing the names and sequence of numbers as well as knowing how many can be in a collection.

I’ve just started some very early counting activities with my Little Miss Two. She really likes saying the numbers and counting to 10 when we play hide and seek. She can do this mostly correct, but for some reason always skips number 5 and goes straight to 6 :-D.

We completed a painting with cotton buds activity last week and I thought that we would start by using the cotton buds to place the correct number of spots to match the numbers 1-10. The pictures below show how this turned out. Thanks to Learn with Play at Home for the great idea!

Ahhh all finished

Although Little Miss Two got a bit tired after the number 5, we had great fun doing this together. We then just used the cotton buds to do some painting and mixing of colours.

The video for this week demonstrates students counting and ordering numbers in multiple ways. I liked this video as it shows the teacher referring to different learning styles and she also has her students working in groups.

What are some of the activities that you use to help teach counting concepts? Please leave your comments below.
