Absorbing counting

Rose had lots of fun today - she got to try out her new ladling tray
I just love the concentrartion levels (I used to tick my tongue out like this when I was little)

and just to prove our activities have a lasing impact - when she spilt some water on the tray she carefully removed the jug and bowl, wiped the tray and replaced the jug and bowl :)
She also spent a long time playing with her I-Spy bottle (coloured balls hidden in rice)
and finished with a transferring exercise
which she turned into a counting activity (bearing in mind I've haven't taught her to count yet, she has absorbed this from Tulip's lessons)
Tulip started subtraction today - I presented her with a sheet containing 6 stickers, which she had to count, then asked her to remove 4 and tell me how many were left - we then wrote the sum out. Next she took the sheet of prepared sums and stickers and worked the sums out.
