My Number, Your Number

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Karin Ayres

Children sit facing their partner and start counting in ones, taking it in turns. Great to improve listening skills and co-operation / peer support.

This can be used with any numbers, eg. counting in twos, tens, etc. I have also used it to say the days of the week, months of the year. In fact most maths topics can be incorporated.

My shape, your shape... listing properties of a shape with your partner is fun.

Great for team work and less able children and boys enjoy it as there is no recording! I have also sent this game home as homework and have had a good feedback from parents. As the teacher, it also gives you time to walk around the class listening and finding out exactly who is able to do it and those that need more support.
