Building 9 and 10
Children continue to apply the counting principles when counting to 9 and 10 (forwards and backwards) They represent 9 and 10 in different ways. Arranging 9 or 10 items into small groups will support the children to conceptually subitise these larger numbers and explore their composition. (E.g. I know it is 9 because I see 3, 3 and 3) Children notice that a 10 frame is full when there is 10. They can use 10 frames, fingers and bead strings to subitise groups of 9 and 10.
