Learning to count to 10 Chinese & Indonesian
A simple colouring and counting activity to introduce numbers to 10.
Outcome: ACMNA001 Establish understanding of the language and processes of counting by naming numbers in sequences, initially to and from 20, moving from any starting point.
- Reading stories from other cultures featuring counting in sequence to assist students to recognise ways of counting in local languages and across cultures.
Warm-up: Count forwards to 10 and backwards from 10, using the sheet provided – put it up on the IWB to use or print out at A3 size.
Teach: Help children pronounce numbers in Chinese or Indonesian from 1-10. Practice these randomly by drawing one of the number cards in the language of choice and seeing if the children can count the dots and then say the number. You will need to know how to pronounce them yourself.
Individual Task: Give each child a colouring activity to create a class display of the numbers 1 to 10 in either or both languages.
The Chinese colourings include lanterns and the Indonesian colourings have Kuda Lumpings.
Regroup: Children show the class their finished product…practice saying the number out loud to be repeated by others in the class and then hang on the wall.
