# Newspaper Numbers

### 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?

• 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

### He Whakawhitinga Kōrero:

• Tapahia ngā tau e kite ana koe i te nūpepa i ngā mōheni rānei. Ko ngā tau mai i te kotahi ki te kotahi rau anake. (Cut out the numbers you see in the newspaper or magazine. Only numbers from 1 to 100.)
• Raupapahia ngā tau mai i te iti ki te rahi. (Put the numbers in order from the smallest to largest.)
• Ko tēhea te tau iti rawa atu? He aha koe i mōhio ai? (Which is the smallest number? How do you know?)
• Ko tēhea te tau ki muri i tēnā? (Which number would come after that one?)
• Mēnā e tatau ana tāua, he aha te tau ka whai muri i tēnā? (If we are counting, which number would come after that one?)
• Mēnā e tatau ana tāua, he aha te tau ki mua i tēnā? (If we are counting, which number would come before that one?)
