Concept of Zero

As we've spent this week out and about I thought it might be a good time to share a little game that DD4 did a while ago that I haven't had time to share.
The concept of zero presentation is a fun little game. I started with a basket of numbers/items and she had to select a number and find the correct items -  'get 3 frogs', 'give me 7 stones', 'can you find 8 marbles' etc until she turned up 'find me 0 gloves' which flummoxed her for a while and gave us a good chance to discuss the importance of zero and read a great book I picked up at the library zero is the leaves on the tree.

Next we moved onto an activity game - asking her to 'clap four times', 'jump six times', 'spin 8 times' etc. then 'roll over 0 times'. She loved this one so much she decided everybody had to play while she called out the activities.

Just on an aside, I noticed DD4 has developd an unusual way of rug rolling - she stands on the rug and rolls it up whilst she walking backwards on it :)
