1. From a story, it leads to a
mathematics problem. For example, a video story “Jack and the beanstalk” was
shown and it led to counting with the actual things (the beans).
* A simple video that illustrate how children can learn math through visual*
2. Ten Frames:
As a teacher who teaches mathematics using this simple tool, I see lots of
learning opportunities for the children.

It’s
a tool which children can see numbers visually (aid in one to one
correspondence).

Knowing
the number bonds of 1 – 10 (e.g. 9 is make up of 4 & 5)

Number
conservation: No matter how we move or place the beans in any box in the frame, it’s still the same
number of beans.

Knowing
place value. When all the 10 boxes were filled up with 1 bean each, it’s a
complete set (tens). Each bean will represent ones.

These
leads the children to learn that there are other ways to make tens and to find
the total when counting.
3. Division is not that complicated if
we use number bond
4. Cannot count 2 different nouns. For example,
2 cups + 4 bowls =? They are 2 different things, so we cannot add them, unless
we change them to the same thing. For example, 2 cups + 4 cups = 6 cups.
5.
There are different kinds of numbers
 Ordinal numbers: Numbers for time and space (1st, 2nd, 3rd)
 Cardinal numbers:
Numbers that tell the amount for countable objects
