Extra resources



You could make your own 5 speckled frogs using whatever... socks, paper, egg boxes

and your own background - pond, log and grass by either drawing them, or using things you have around your house (be creative)

or you could print out and use the resource below.


This is a set of cards some with numbers and some with dots. You could use these to play a number of games... 

You could

  • match the dot cards to the number cards
  • play snap
  • play 'who has the highest number'
  • show a card - number or dot - and the children hold up the correct amount of fingers
  • show a dot card and the children write the number to match



This is a sheet with some 5 frames.


Make your own double sided counters using card and colouring one side in red and the other in yellow (or whichever 2 colours you want) and use them alongside the online videos.


Keep these as we will more than likely be using them again... and again... and again


To go alongside watching this episode of Numberblocks you could get 5 lego/ duplo blocks and investigate different ways of making different numbers.


e.g. get 3 blocks

  • look at how you can break them into a block of 2 and a single 1. 
  • talk about how there are still 3 but that it is now split into 2 and 1.
  • maybe write 2 + 1 = 3 (don't worry if they're not ready for this)


Can they split it any other way? - e.g. 1   1   1


Repeat this idea with breaking other amounts into different parts.
