In the area of mathematics this week we will focus on a range of construction vehicles and how they move.
Develop Maths from the story Tip Tip Dig Dig by Emma Garcia
Do lots of touch counting. Ask questions such as:
How many different construction vehicles are there in the story?
How many wheels are there on each of the vehicles.
Use the story to explore number recognition and counting skills
Use sequencing story vocabulary such as first, next, then, last etc.
Encourage the use of comparative language and explore opposites when talking about how the construction vehicles work such as up, down, high, low, push, pull, full, empty
At the end of the story all the work vehicles have worked together to make an adventure playground
How many different activities have been made?
How many tyres can be found in the adventure playground?
