This Maths resource is aimed at pupils in junior/middle classes or AEN pupils who are working on early number. The resource features butterflies with spots for pupils to count. It focuses on pupils’ knowledge of the words for the numbers 0 – 10.
There are four cards per A4 page. Cut up the sheets into 11 separate cards and laminate the cards individually. The pupil has to count the number of spots on the butterfly on the left of the card, find the correct number word on the right of the card from the three suggestions given and attach a clothes peg to that word.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may be good at counting but may not be able to write number words. This resource could be used as an independent task or a task with adult support.
This resource would also be suitable for a group of pupils during Maths Station Teaching, where a pack is made for each pupil in the group.
This resource is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our AEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what Maths topic we were currently working on.
