## Counting From 6 to 10 Picnic Picture Puzzle

We created this resource for your maths groups as an independent practice activity. To play, students will identify the number on the puzzle piece and cover the matching number of objects to complete the puzzle.

Through this activity, students will show they can count from 6 to 10 and match a group of items with a corresponding number.

## Why Focus on Counting from 6-10 Only?

Practicing counting to 5 and then counting from 6 to 10 separately is beneficial because it breaks the learning process into manageable segments, making it easier for young children to grasp. Counting to 5 is often a child’s first experience with numbers and provides a strong foundation for understanding basic counting principles such as one-to-one correspondence, number recognition, and sequence. Once children are confident with these initial numbers, moving on to 6 through 10 allows them to build on their existing knowledge without becoming overwhelmed.

This step-by-step approach helps reinforce learning by ensuring that each set of numbers is well understood before progressing. Additionally, practicing in smaller groups helps children recognize patterns within each set, such as the transition from single digits to numbers composed of “five plus more” (e.g., 6 is 5 + 1), which aids in developing number sense and preparing them for more advanced mathematical concepts. By mastering these segments individually, children develop a more solid and confident understanding of counting and number relationships.
