Splat the Number

Using the number cards you made last week, lay them out on the floor. You can chalk the numbers outside if you wish. Make a line about 2 metres away, this will be where your child will aim from. Ask your child to nominate the number they will be aiming for. Using a ball, bean bag, rolled pair of socks aim them at the number. If they are successful they score a point.


You nominate the number for your child to hit, then they nominate yours.

Nominate the number in the form of a problem. For example; 1 less than 8, 2 more than 10, in between 12 and 14.

Introduce the tally system as a way of recording scores.
