# Term 3 Week 3 Working with number 14

The other number we worked with during week 3 was number 14.

As usual we first saw where this number stands on a number line 12, 13, 14, 15 and carefully listened to the words we use whilst saying this number, e.g.  teen means that such a number is always written with a 1 first then the 4 follows.

I really emphasizes this so the children won’t write the 4 first and then the 1 thus 41.  Later on in the coming years they will start understanding that this changes the value of the number totally.

As usual the children had a rotation system where they counted various objects up to 13, such as buttons, toys, numicon shapes and interlocking blocks.

We then did hands on activities where the children had to stamp 14 bicycles onto a Dutch boat house and then colour it in.  They also used the rainbow technique to form number 14.  (Work done on number scrapbook 2).

The children also practiced writing number 14 on their number workbook 5.  They drew 14 balls and coloured in the numicon shapes.

Last but not least they had to write the number which comes next like in the page below.  They used the number line provided at the bottom of the page.
