# Number Line Counting

Number Line Counting is a maths activity that involves children sorting numbers along the number line.  It is a great way for children to learn numbers, counting and also develop early graphing skills.

## What you will need?

You will need magnetic numbers, magnetic easel board and a number line.

You can download and print the number line here:Rainbow Number Line 1-10

We have laminated out number line for more durability and so that we can re-use it on other number activities.

## Some Ideas:

• Sort each number to match the correct number on the number line.
• Point and counting each number on the number line.
• Talk about which numbers have the most numbers matching.

## Learning Opportunities:

• Fine Motor Development – manipulating objects.
• Hand-eye Coordination and Control
• Concentration
• Language development – Counting our loud and pronunciation of numbers.
• Mathematics – Recognising numbers, value of numbers and early graphing skills.
• Sorting by number.
