Growing 6, 7 and 8!
Children continue to apply the counting principles when counting to 6, 7 and 8. They represent 6, 7, and 8 in different ways and can count out the required number of objects from a larger group. Arranging 6, 7 or 8 items into small groups will support the children to conceptually subitise and see how the numbers are made up of smaller numbers. E.g. I know it is 8 because I see 4 and 4 Encourage the children to order and compare their representations, noticing the one more/less patterns as they count on and back to 8.
