The wonderful Learning Resources sent me a pack of All About Me Family Counters to use at school. There are 6 characters in 6 different colours and the children have really enjoyed using them. I’m sharing how they’ve been used in our classroom in this post, but we haven’t had them for very long and so have only used them in a few ways so far. Looking forward to using them some more!
A little support from an adult with this…
This just happened naturally as part of their play. I love capturing moments like this…
I thought this was fab – colour sorting and increasing numbers! It had nothing to do with the adults at all!
On the Overhead Projector
You may remember this photo from my Getting to Know Me post… The counters are great on the OHP!
We’ve had them with numbers too…
I put them out on a transient art table along with some colourful loose parts, to see if they would add them to their creations. They look particularly effective on the black background!
Small World Play
A couple of the girls took the cats from the pack to the logs near the small world area…
These were really popular along with rainbow blocks and 3D shapes…
I can’t wait to explore them further. I think they’ll be great with play dough – and maybe they need to venture outdoors…
Thanks for reading!
Would love you to come & say hello! 🙂
