Good morning everyone
Whilst we have been away from school I have been reading lots about supporting children through this crisis. One article on 'Supporting Your Families Well-being' was particularly helpful. It suggested:

Children have been developing their counting skills throughout the year and now know to say the number names in order when counting, whilst touching each object carefully.

Some children will find this easy, others will find it more difficult.
Every child is different.
If your child can recognise numbers 1-10 already, then you could continue recognition to 20.
If your child is learning numbers 1-5 or 1-10, it is helpful if you put a number-line up on the wall/ fridge for children to see every day.
Simply write numbers 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
clearly on a strip of paper.
Today is 'Wiggle Wednesday', so lets all dance and move together.
This is great for developing physical skills and strength but is also fun and helps us feel good.
This is a great story to share with younger children and talk about how they have grown and don't have a dummy anymore. (Or 'pacifier,' as they call it in the book).
