### Purpose:

You can help your child to order numbers from one to one hundred.

### What you need:

- Newspaper, junk mail or old magazines
- Scissors

### What to do:

Help your child to look for the numbers 1 – 100 in the newspaper and cut these out.

Once you have a pile of numbers (10 to 15 would be plenty) put them in order from smallest to largest. Ask your child questions about the order of numbers as you work:

*Which is the smallest number?**Which of these numbers would come after that one?*

Help your child to identify numbers that are missing from the sequence.

*What would be the next counting number after this one?**Which number comes before this one in the counting sequence?*

### He Kupu Māori:

order, sequence | raupapa |
