Counting in 2's

I have been practising counting in 2's with my whole class. We did rhythmic counting using a number chart so children know that there is a resource available for them to use. As a follow up activity children had to take photo's of counting in 2's to show their learning. The children were engaged and enjoyed doing this activity.

At our Manaiakalani PLG last week Dorothy invited a special guest speaker, Professor Graeme Aitken (University of Auckland). I found him very inspiring as he talked about inquiring collaboratively into effective teaching practise. For learners to be successful we need focus on three areas: Interest and Enjoyment of Learning, Confidence and Achievement.

This made me think of my own teaching practise and what I can do create enjoyment, build self confidence with my learners so that they can achieve. I am now looking at resources and activities like maths board games, cards and create some Explain Everything activities to keep children motivated and interested in their learning.
