Number stories and number sentences

This week in Senior Infants we have been learning about number stories. For example, 3 bears went to the playground and 4 more joined them, how many altogether.  We have been making number sentences with numicon shapes as well as addding, minus and equal symbols. We drew pictures to show our number stories and wrote number sentences. Some new words we are learning for ‘plus’ are ‘add’ and ‘more’. Some new words we are learning for ‘take away’ are ‘minus’ and ‘less’.
