Today, we are going to continue learning about odd and even numbers.
Yesterday we found odd and even numbers by putting items into pairs.
Another way you can find odd and even numbers is by sharing items into 2 groups.
If the items can be shared equally into 2 groups the number is EVEN.
If the items can’t be shared equally into 2 groups and there is 1 left over the number is ODD.
So let’s have a go with your counters and 2 Lego people to share the counters between.
You can use anything to share the counters between like plates, bowls, teddies or toy people.
Let’s try 5:
Find 5 counters.
Share them between the 2 people.
We have 1 counter left over so 5 is an odd number.
Let’s try 8:
Find 8 counters.
Share them between the two people.
They share equally between the two people so 8 is an even number.
Now it’s your turn:
Find the number of counters and share them between two things like two plates or two Lego people.
If they share equally, it is an even number.
If there is one left over it is an odd number.
Ask somebody to read the Beegu story to you while you do the actions you have made.
Do you remember this from the Beegu story?
‘Beegu felt lonely, so she decided to find some friends. She found a playground full of children.’
Have a look at the picture of a school playground below.
In your home learning book, write some sentences using adjectives (describing words) about what Beegu can see. Here is an example to help you.
Beegu can see green trees.
If you want to challenge yourself try and use ‘and’ in your sentences. Here is an example to help you.
Beegu can see green trees and blue sky.
Here is a word mat with some words you could use in your sentences:
Aa – capital letters
. – full stops
Sp – use your phonics to spell
Ask a grown up to help you with your sentences if there is anything you need help with.
If you’d like to, you could post one of your sentences in the comments. I would love to hear from you!
A story to finish with:
I hope you enjoyed today’s learning!
