Backward Number Word Sequence

Example: Count backwards from 3. One Two three. Now count backwards from ** and keep going until I say stop.

Additive Tasks

Introductory task: There are 3 red counters under here and 1 yellow counter under here. How many counters are there altogether?

Perceptual Counting (one collection): Would you please count to see how many counters there are altogether in this group? Place out 13 counters Place out 18 counters

Missing Addends

Introductory task: Here are 4 red counters. Now look away. While you were looking away I placed some yellow counters under here. Now there are 6 counters altogether. How many yellow counters did I put under here? 7 + [ ] = 10 12 + [ ] = 15

Use just one screen. Show the first addend then ask the child to look away. Be sure to use two colors.

Subtractive Tasks

Subtraction sentences:
Present the tasks as a written number sentence on a card. Say to the child, “What does this say? Do you have a way to work out what the answer is? Entry taskSupplementary task 16 – 12 17 - 14

Here are 5 counters. (Ask the child to look away. Remove and screen two counters). There were 5 counters. While you were looking away I took some away. Now there are only three. How many did I take away?
Introductory task: 5 to 3 { 5 – [ ] = 3}
Entry tasks: 10 to 6 {10 – [ ] = 6} 12 to 9 {12 – [ ] = 9}
More advanced: 15 to 11 {15 – [ ] = 11}

Removed Items

Here are 3 counters (briefly display then screen). If I take one away (remove 1, briefly display, then screen) how many are left under here? (Indicate the first screen)
