This week we are thinking about the number 5!
Can your child...
Show 5 fingers without counting them?
Can they count 5 objects accurately?
Can they count forwards and backwards to 5?
Where can they see the number 5 in the world around them? (e.g. on a clock, house number, on a phone etc)
Can they make groups of 5? (e.g grouping pencils into threes, grouping teddies into threes etc)
Follow instructions - e.g. can you do 5 claps, 5 twirls, 5 jumps etc
Can they say two numbers that add together to make 5? You could use objects to help with this.
You could also sing these number songs:
5 little speckled frogs
5 little men in a flying saucer
5 little ducks when swimming one day
5 little monkeys bouncing on the bed
5 currant buns in a bakers shop
