Today we are continuing our work with the number 7. Watch the video below and pause it at various points to discuss what is happening in different scenes.
After the video has finished, I would like you two create a Number 7 Gallery. I have attached and example below the Numbertime Video of what one may look like and it may beneficial to talk through the image, asking your child why they think these items and objects were included in my Number 7 Gallery
This is an open-ended activity and allows your child to use their mathematical understanding. It is all about reasoning so if your child can say WHY the items or object belongs in the display and give a mathematical justification then it is acceptable.
It could include a rainbow (seven colours), Snow White (seven dwarves), seven tins of beans, amounts added together to make 7, number bonds for 7, anything; as long as your child can say why they associate it with the number seven.
Today we are going to get creative and create a piece of artwork inspired by the famous painter Bob Ross.
Watch the story time below and then create your child's own piece of artwork for a home for Peapod the Squirrel. You could paint a picture, create a collage or a drawing. It is completely up to your child.
