PDF | 3 pages|Grades: F - Reception

A fun activity to be used to reinforce a variety of mathematical concepts.

This teaching resource includes an aerial view of an empty shopping trolley and a collection of cards depicting groceries. The shopping trolley has a grid marked on it with various ‘teen’ numbers and 2D shapes placed in the grid.

This resource is a barrier game that is played in pairs, with the players separated by a barrier. There is a speaker and a listener. Prior to beginning the game, the speaker ‘goes shopping’, choosing grocery cards and placing them in their trolley on the grid squares. The listener does not see the speaker’s trolley. During the game, the speaker gives directions to the listener about which groceries to choose and where to place them on the grid. The listener must listen carefully and place the groceries correctly on their shopping trolley grid.

Use this resource as the ideal introduction to using simple grid maps to show position while reinforcing counting skills.
