Ten leaping cheetahs – just one of our new Wild Animal Counting 1 – 10 Posters. Young students need plenty of variety to develop flexible number concepts. Apart from the obvious counting of all the creatures on each poster, challenge your students to visualise adding and subtracting creatures too. What if three more cheetahs joined these ones – how many cheetahs will there be? What if 10 more joined? What if 3 cheetahs were too tired and stopped to take a rest?
Encourage your students to create these “What if?” stories for each other.
