This Maths resource is aimed at pupils in junior/middle classes or SEN pupils who are working on the concept of odd and even numbers. It focuses on the numbers 0 – 20.
Cut up the sheets into 21 separate cards and laminate the cards individually. The pupil has to look at the number at the top of the card and then attach a clothes peg on the bottom of the card to indicate whether the number is either odd or even.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may be able to recognise and understand the concept of odd and even numbers but may not be able to record this in written form.
This resource would also be suitable for a group of pupils during Maths Station Teaching, where a pack is made available 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 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 resource could be used as an independent task completed by the pupil in their work station or a task completed with adult support.
