Learning from home – adding up

Adults – make some targets up for children to aim for and label home many points they will get if they hit it. They could use beanbags, balls, whatever they can.  Children to add up their score at the end. They could use their fingers, objects, draw tally marks or count on in their head.

“I got 2 and 2…that makes 4. 1 more is 5”

” I got 5 points and 2 points..6, 7 points”

“I got 4 and 3 and 2…I’m going to draw the tally marks”

Make it easier: make each target 1 or 2 points.

Make it more tricky: make each target up to 5 points. Can they aim for a certain total?
