Teaching and learning

Some of the learners in my group struggle with understanding mathematical language and terms.
I discussed this problem with a colleague(Rachel) that I am presently job sharing with. She talked about a warm up activity that she played with her older children and explained how we could use it in a Year 1 class.

We practised counting backwards with support of materials.

  1. Hi Khismira, we found your inquiry is very similar to our observations. The use of concrete materials rather than numbers initially makes sense in developing the understanding of positional language. This strategy could be applied across the curriculum to reinforce understanding of position.
