Have been doing quite a bit of this recently and decided to try as many different activities as I could.
Idea 1 – class member counts but misses out numbers – others have to spot which ones were missed.
Idea 2 – groups of 4. Students can count from 1-31 or however high you wish to go. They can say 1,2 or 3 numbers at a time but have to avoid numbers in the 5 times table. If they say a 5,10,15 etc they collect a letter. The letters are BURRO or LIMON and the idea is that you do not want to be a donkey or a lemon.
Idea 3 – finger twister. Students draw a grid on mini-whiteboards or paper and fill in with numbers. One student acts as a caller, the others have to use their thumb, index finger and middle finger. It is twister in miniature.
Idea 4 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ydJr1Is8xI songs, textbooks often have some.
Idea 5 – Last man standing. Basically bingo in reverse. Every student writes 4-5 numbers between a given range and stands up. A student (or teacher) is the caller. The aim is to be the last man left standing. If all 4 numbers are called you are out and you sit down. This would work really well with Queen’s “another one bites the dust” in the background.
