Doubling with Numicon

by Bhavini Pandya November 12, 2020

Use the numicon pieces to help you double numbers with this What’s in my tray? activity.

What to do:

  • Make a grid in the base of the tray.
  • Make the ‘double’ labels.
  • Place one numicon shape in the top square of each column.
  • Ask your child to find double underneath- to do this they may get two of the same shape and find the ‘whole’.
