Counting with Rodd - Number 5
Rodd is baking buns when he receives a package containing novelty gloves with speckled frogs, monkeys on beds and currant buns. Children can help Rodd hunt for the numeral five on his shelf and join in with physical actions based on the number five. They can then help him solve a problem as he wonders how to find out whether he has enough cherries for his buns. Rodd then invites the children to sing the number five song and draw a large number five.
Ask children to pretend to be frogs hopping around and, on a signal, they must gather into groups of five.
Using plastic ducks, ask children to work out how many green paper 'lily pads' they would need for each duck to sit on a lily pad. Children can sort playpeople into sets of five, and count how many playdough sausages they need for each playperson to have a 'sausage'. Children can dip the fingertips of one hand into thick paint and put one finger or thumb down on paper, one at a time, each time they hear a drum beat.
