Chain of Clips

Teaching children numeracy concept is the first step towards learning Maths. According to National Numeracy Organization UK, we use numeracy every day in all areas of our lives. Our confidence and ability with numbers impacts us financially, socially, and professionally. It even affects our health and well being (https://www.nationalnumeracy.org.uk/why-numeracy-important)

When children already can count, they can be taught comparison, for exampl, to know that 6 objects are lesser than 7 or 8 objects. To make the concept easier to understand, use plastics clips of same sizes that can be linked into a chain, and ask them to link the plastic clips in ascending numbers. Ask them which ones are longer, which means they are more than the shorter ones.
