Red, yellow, green and blue pegs for use with Numicon Base.
Build understanding of number and introduce addition and subtraction.
These pegs add a way to extend the use of Numcon pieces. Ideas for using the pegs include:
Sorting the pegs and pieces by colour.
Creating a 'teen number line' using a ten piece/plate and pegs to show each number.
Using the pegs for subtraction - eg put a 10 plate down, put 10 pegs down, remove 3 pegs. Find the plate that matches the amount left.
Symmetry activities using plates and pegs.
Grab a handful of pegs - estimate which plate matches the number of pegs. Check and correct.
Using a feely bag - gradually add pegs to the bag. How many in the bag now?
