Monday: I can rote count forwards to 15

Tuesday: I can make and count amounts within 15


  • Use small items found at home (e.g. pasta, buttons, beads, lego) to make amounts for numbers 11,12,13,14 and 15. Ask your child to show the amount in a straight row, to make counting easier.

  • Touch count the sets of objects from 1-11, 1-12, 1-13, 1-14 and 1-15. The last number that is said is the total amount in the set.

  • Now make a row of ten objects. Ask your child to add 1 more. How many are there now? Say "The number that comes after 10 is 11." Add 1 more to the set of 11 objects. How many are there now? Say "The number that comes after 11 is 12." Repeat for 12, 13 and 14.

  • Cut out the individual cards then turn each number face down. Reveal one number. Can your child identify the number? Repeat.

  • Reveal all the digit cards. Order the cards from 0-15. Count from 0 to 15, pointing to each number as you go.

  • Complete the following activity:

Thursday: I can explore ordering numbers to 15


  • Show a random number card from yesterday. Can your child say the number that comes before this number?

  • Select two of the number cards. Make amounts for each of the numbers, showing in rows as yesterday, for easy touch counting.

  • Ask: Which of the amounts has the least value and which has the greatest value? How do you know? Repeat this task, selecting two different number cards.

  • Ask your child to say these three sentences about one of the numbers: e.g. 6.  6 comes before ___, 6 comes after ___, 6 is between ___ and ___ Repeat this task for other number cards.

Friday: I can add 1 more to numbers within 15


  • Ask your child to listen carefully. Clap an amount within 15. Can your child say how many claps they heard? Repeat.

  • Make a set of 14 small objects (using pasta, buttons, beads etc.) Say "There are 14" and place the matching number card beside the amount.

  • Now add one more object to the set. Say to your child "There were 14. I added 1 more. There are 15 altogether. One more than 14 is equal to 15." Replace the 14 number card with the 15 card. Repeat this task for other amounts within 15.
