As an Early Childhood teacher I know young children need plenty of practice before some maths concepts are understood. Over the past few years I've created some quick to set up maths games that can easily be added to math centres for independent exploration or played in pairs by whole classes.

These missing numeral cards have been ideal for children learning to count and helps build their recognition skills. Add magnetic numbers or create your own number counters like I have with some beach stones.

Teaching the correct formation of numerals is sometimes forgotten in classrooms. We teach formal handwriting but don't always spend a lot of time on numbers. This printable 'Race to Trace' game is a fun way to practice handwriting whilst also learning to subitise and take turns if playing with someone else.

There are plenty of simple ways to work on quantity. 

We love using old loom bands (remember that craze from a few years ago) to build number. Perfect for building up those small hand muscles.

Using hole punches to make the correct number is another great way to build fine motor skills while also practicing counting.

Working on addition to ten is a good way to start exploring number bonds with young children. Create your own flip blocks from cardboard or you can purchase small blocks with different colours on each side.

Using maths tools like ten frames in the Early Years helps children organise their thinking.

Numicon is a favourite tool of mine. It's so visual and helps children 'see' numbers and how they work together. 

Here we paired them with our FREE Say It, Make It, Write It mats. You can find the mats here.

This game - In and Out is another fun way to explore number bonds. Here we used it to work on our rainbow facts to 10 but any number could be used.
