# Numeracy Activities

## Using Tens Frames to Build the Basic Facts of Five

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

The purpose of this “unit” is to introduce addition facts to five.  It is important for students to have concrete experiences using a variety of contexts to build their knowledge of the basic facts of five.  They need to become secure in this knowledge to enable them to build on these known facts in future learning.

## Using Tens Frames for One to One Counting

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

The purpose of this “unit” is to recognise the numbers 0 to 10 as represented using the quinary pattern on the tens frame.  This develops the students’ ability to visualise the quinary patterns and is fundamental to future work with tens frames and visualising number patterns.

## Target Practice

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

The aim of this activity is to improve develop students' recall of the basic addition facts.

## Clap, Pat, Click

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

This activity is to encourage students to skip count to help them find the answer to problems involving equal groups.  It is designed to help students make the link between ‘whisper’ counting with body percussion and solving multiplication facts.v

## Buttons and Frames

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

This activity is to allow students to explore all the combinations to ten.  These are necessary facts to come to know as they are used as a base to derive other facts from.  For example 8 + 4 = .  I know 8 + 2 = 10 there’s 2 more so it’s 12

## Buttons to Ten

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

In this activity students explore all the combinations to ten.  These are necessary facts to come to know as they are used as a base to derive other facts from.  For example 8 + 4 = .  I know 8 + 2 = 10 there’s 2 more so it’s 12

## Go Fish 10

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

This activity encourages students to learn the addition facts of ten.

## Jumping Beans

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

This activity explores how numbers relate to ten.  It also encourages the visualisation or imaging of numbers to ten.

## Teenagers

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

In this activity students use their knowledge of numbers from 13 – 20 in a random order to tell which number in the pair is greater than or less than the number.

## Clockwork

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level One

In this activity students practise their forwards and backwards counting.
