Go grab a pack of foam hands, glue dots and numbers to make
Four Foam Hands Maths Activities
These can either be used as displays or as stand alone activities. When I use them as activities I place the hands shuffled in a basket for the children to re-order, not as they are pictured below. 🙂
#1 Counting in Ones to Ten
Let the children rearrange the hands so they are in the correct order. These could also be used with objects and the children could place the correct number in the palms of each hand!
#2 Counting in Doubles
Knowing these five double facts is a good foundation for Maths skills. It teaches them to calculate mentally and prepares them for doubling larger numbers later on.
#3 Counting in Tens to 100
This is a big one to master in Kinder!
Provide your child with a jumbled up set of hands with numbers attached and invite them to place them in order from 10 to 100.
#4 Counting in fives
Last but not least, an obvious one yet still an important one!

I’d love to know how you use foam hands in your teaching!
