Basic numeracy

When you create shapes or patterns with your child, count the Flockmen in your creation.

Your child will enjoy having a good go at it once you have done it with him/her a couple of times. Start with counting from 0-3 in sets (repeat in the activity by setting up Flockmen in various ways to establish the knowledge) then try 0-5, then gradually count from 0-10, if your toddler counts confidently from 0-10, start introducing double digit numbers, but don’t over do it. It is important to get the basics right.
