Well, we have been working hard this week and I think the children are finally starting to understand that the teen numbers mean there is ten and some more. We have acted them out (academy award winning performances I must say), we have danced about them (some of it I call dancing), we have sung about them, we have written them, we have used ten frames, counters, etc. and I can't tell a lie we have cried a little too. Here is a link to a fun YouTube video we watched about the teen numbers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGa2cVluGnU
Today we put a really fun spin on it for the children and let them write numbers on each other's backs to see if their partner can guess it without looking. Don't worry, we didn't ruin any clothes in the process, they wrote on their backs with their fingers! One person in the pair had the numerals written on a card and the other person had a set that represented the numeral. They took turns writing the numbers on their friend's backs and they also had to match the numeral to a set.
