The next number on our number line is 16.
By now the children got used to the routine of marching up to 20 at the beginning of the lesson and they look forward to it:
Count and Move – Super Simple Songs
The children counted various objects up to 16. I emphasized not to forget our tricky numbers out 11, 12, 13 and 15. They also watched the following video clip –
Sesame Street Count till 16
As part of their hands on activities the children had to use the rainbow technique to form 16 on their number scrapbook. They also had to count 16 washers and stick them under the lifeguard picture representing one of the many safety equipment the lifeguard would have at hand.
They also had to colour it in with specific instructions given such as colour in the face peach, orange, brown or pink. (They could not colour the entire picture in one block colour as some might do.)
The children also practiced writing number 16 on their workbook and drew 16 balls and coloured in the equivalent numicon shapes.
Last but not least they practiced their counting skills on a mixed number page.
Here are some pictures of the children at work whilst counting and gluing 16 washers, counting blocks and playing with them after 🙂
