Looking for a way to make oral counting with your class more fun, visual, engaging and challenging? Math warm ups have never been so good with our Bees Knees FREEBEE Traffic Light Counting Resource! This versatile resource is a great addition to any teachers math toolkit. They can be used year on year across different age groups and we have found kids of all ages have loved using them.
Print, cut and laminate the traffic light and the number cards, selecting the cards within the number range your kids are working within 0-20, 0-50 or 0-100. Explain to children that green means go and red means stop. Choose two numbers and place one on the green go light and the other on red stop light. Talk about which number is bigger and then discuss whether you need to count forwards or backwards.
Green 8 and Red 23 – Kids are counting forwards/up
Green 56 and Red 12 – Kids are counting backwards/down
This resource also works really well as a math centre activity as a paired or independent task . Put the number cards in an envelope for children to take out and place on the traffic light. They can then count aloud to their partner or record the numbers on a whiteboard.
