We had to buddy up, close our eyes and listen as our buddy dropped beads into a cup. As we were listening we had to count. Then we opened our eyes and said how many beads we thought there were and lastly we counted them on the number line to check our number! It was hard work concentrating and trying to listen for the sound!
We used beads to make ladybird spots and groupings to 5.
5+0=5 and 2+3=5 are some of our groupings.
9 + 1 are friends. 8 + 2 are friends. We can go all the way down to 0 + 10!
