Below is a number square. There are some many ways you can use a number square to support your child’s learning!!

Counting in 2’s, 3’s, 5’s and 10’s. Look at the number counted, can you see a pattern? What is the same/different about each number? 

Roll a dice on the number square, say the number it lands on, is it odd or even? How many tens and ones? What is ten more or less than that number?
