Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Giving out

Books/pencils/cups etc to class mates.

Pile of items the teacher wants handed round to the class

Give the child a pile of books to hand out.

Does the child notice if there is one too many or one too few? Set it up so that there is one too many/few and comment. Say 'Look......too many/too few books/pens' etc.

Commenting on 'unequal sets' is a very everyday activity.

Children experience 'unequal sets' when there are too few chairs in the class room, too many children for the number of cakes at dinner.

Comment on these experiences.

Keep the activity concrete - work with objects at this stage.
