The numbers could be ages of members in the extended family, letterbox numbers of friends and family, lotto result numbers, last two numbers of telephone numbers etc

- Ask your child to write each number on separate pieces of paper.
- Work together to put the numbers in order.
- Ask your child to read the numbers out when the sequence is complete.
- Ask questions like what is the largest number, the smallest number, which numbers are odd, even,
- -ty numbers. Choose a -ty number and ask what is one more than, one less than, ten more than, ten less than this number.

### What to expect your child to do:

To be able to record the numbers, to put the numbers in order, to know numbers one and ten more than and less than specific numbers.
