I was working in a Nursery yesterday on supply with foundation 1. These children are 3 years old and are just learning to say and recognise numbers up to 9.¬† We were all in the classroom doing a number activity and when the teacher pointed to a number all the children said these little rhymes to remind them how to write it. I think they are a great set of phrases and the children’s learning I think improves greatly with these prompts. I took a photograph of the chart to share with you and hope you find it valuable. It’s not a great photograph because I took it quickly, so I’ve tried to adjust it accordingly.

Actually, the photograph is pretty rubbish so I’ll write them out:

0…Blow a bubble

1…Down the drain

2…Dizzy duck so sit her down

3…Curly caterpillar

4…Down the giant’s nose then his moustache¬†grows

5…A big fat man puts his hat on

6…Fly down and loop the loop

7…Skate along and slide down

8…Make an ‘S’ and chase it home

9…Blow a bubble on a stick

PS.. When helping your child to practice the numbers, say the rhymes as they write out the number.
