Early Years/Reception Maths Activity – Teach Maths with Counters

Key Stage

KS1

Age

Years R-2

Counters are a fantastic resource – easy to use, cheap to buy and ideal for developing mathematical thinking and learning.

Because they are easy to handle, children love playing with them, so make sure you have lots around the room, in baskets, bags or boxes. It also helps to have them in different areas, not just the mathematics corner (if you have one).

This resource from NRICH’s Alison Borthwick gives you some great ideas to get going with them.
