Mission 22: One more time
Ideas
•
Put a small number of things (counters, grapes, buttons, toy animals,..) in a group, your child counts them and
then puts one more thing into the group and counts again to see how many there are now.
•
Play a game – you say a number, your child says the number one more. You do something a number of times,
your child does one more. Swap over. Change the rule to do one less.
•
Use dice, cards, Numberjacks photocards or numbers. Point to one number and find the one that is one more or
one less.
•
In the home or out and about take turns with your child to spot a number, challenging the other one to find an
example of the number that is one more or one less.
•
Use the Number Speaker to practise counting and noting the number one more or less.
•
Play with the Counter Machine to add one to any number to find the number that is one more, or to take a
counter away to find the number that is one less.
When 1 goes out alone there's one more of everything - 4 rides the railway
to the rescue.
This mission focuses on making numbers one more or less.
Vocabulary: one more, one less, before, after.
