Spiders aren't just for Hallowe'en.
This clean, simple number resources is designed to enable young children to develop their understanding of counting and number recognition.
The lines of spider images show quantities from zero to ten, matched to numerical labels.
The spider-lines have been designed with a visual break after the fifth spider. This makes number combinations easy to recognise: 6 is 5 and 1; 7 is 5 and 2; 8 is 5 and 3; etc.
You can use the resource in a number ways:
Combine the three separate pages to make a display poster showing numbers from zero to 10.
As a maths activity or assessment opportunity, the resource could be cut into separate horizontal strips, now the children can:
- sort or count the spider-lines;
- match a quantity of counters to a spider-line;
If you cut away the digit labels, the children can
- put the spider-lines in order;
- re-label the spider-lines.
As always, we would love to hear how this works for you.
