Counting family members

Updated: Jul 11, 2022

What is it

Practicing counting through various pictures of family members

Teaching Objectives

  • Learning to count

  • Learning to circle the correct number

  • Writing numbers independently

  • Generalise counting skills through different pictures

How to use

  • Start with the circling worksheet (numbers at the side)

  • Read the instructions to ensure that your child knows to circle the correct number or to write the number in the box

  • Count the number of people in the house/ photo frame while pointing at each person 1 by 1

  • Go through all the numbers at the side to help your child identify each number

Teaching tips

  • If your child has difficulty in writing the number independently, dot the number out so that your child can trace over the number in the box

  • Complete worksheet in order (top to bottom, left to right) to help your child understand the flow of work

Embed more learning opportunities

  • Receptive language: Point to number 1

  • Expressive language: How many people are there in the house? Who is in the photo?

  • Use your own family photos to generalise counting skills. See if they can identify the different family members in the photos.
