Instead of using objects around your home look for “number stories” as you walk around the neighbourhood. For example, you saw two teddy bears in one window and three bears in another window. You could take photos for a number story or you could draw a picture of it when you return home. Record the number story in words and using an equation (eg 3 + 2 = 5).
