This resource is aimed at infant or SEN pupils at the beginning of work on numeracy. It is based on addition of numbers up to 5 with an Easter chick theme.
Cut up the sheets into 16 separate cards and laminate them individually. Pupils should add the Easter chicks on the left side of each card and place a peg on the correct answer on the right side of the card from the three options given.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write numbers but can count. It is a way for them to demonstrate their conservation of number. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
We regularly gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN 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.
This activity could also be used as an independent work task completed by a pupil in their work station.
