Here's a link to the numicon website - and their early years pack.
Coincidentally I was reading something about maths this week and numicon was mentioned. Does anybody have any experience of using this resource in a pre-school?
Yes our reception class use it quite a lot. It links colour and visual pattern to number. Hadn't heard of a shape numicon though.
I was wondering how you managed to get so much into your lesson, now the small class and older children makes sense! I also liked the role play ideas. Well done!
I'm being observed on thursday or friday, could be any point of the day but I hear maths is focus, so any outstanding carpet time ideas for a very low ability nursery group? The focus is marks representing number, so focusing on domino style dots to match to numerals.
So far we'll be matching numbered (and dotted) beanbags with numbered balls and a die for each child to choose the number to count to.
A mark-making activity would be good but unsure how to do this with such low ability (average 16-26mths/22-36mths level but age 3) and on a carpetted area. If it was on lino we'd have finger painting, playdough, various messy things! But it needs to be tidy
