Any ideas ??

Discussion in 'Primary' started by freebird06, May 25, 2012.

  1. I am introducing odd and even numbers to my class soon and was just wondering if anyone had any ideas that worked for them whilst introducing this topic .
    Thank you
  2. A nice rhyme I use is:
    I'm a number cruncher and my name is Bob,
    I like numbers if they're odd!
    All odd numbers taste just fine!
    They end 1 3 5 7 9!
    I'm a number cruncher and my name is Steven,
    I like numbers if they're even!
    All even numbers taste just great!
    They end 0 2 4 6 8!

    We march to the tune and feed Bob and Steven with the right numbers.
    Hope that helps :)
  3. Thank you.Was also thinking of putting up a washing line with socks and asking the children to pair them up.If any left over they are odd.Not sure if I explained that well.Full of cold and brain not working lol

    Have you got numicon in school? It is easy for the children to see the difference between the even number pieces that are rectangular and the odd pieces which the children say "have a bit missing" or "have an extra bit".
    I like the rhymes too though.

    You could search '300 generic activities' in the TES Resources. I'm very confident my file will help you!
