A wonderful set of juicy fruit numbers for teaching young and very young learners their first numbers 1-10, acquainting them with fruit vocabulary and simple counting. Numbers are represented in numeral form, word form and an appropriate number of pictures on each card. The set includes 30 flashcards.
These matches will help students learn to correlate numbers with corresponding words or pictures in a form of a game.
How to use:
- represent and study the vocabulary;
- decorate classroom walls or use them as a great visual aid for students;
- have students call out the number or a correct number of fruits (e.g. seven plums) looking at the cards;
- ask students to look at the number and write the certain word or draw fruits on the board/in their copybooks;
- students randomly choose cards from the set and do the same number of actions (jump 5 times on one leg, clap hands 10 times, stand up and sit down 3 times etc);
- students randomly choose the number and then find the appropriate number of things (books, pencils, chairs, leaves etc.) in the classroom or at the playground;
- play games:
Matching. You may play this game with different combinations (numbers+words, words+fruits, fruits+numbers or with the sets of 3: words+fruits+numbers). Shuffle the pictures and put them on the floor (or table), let kids choose the same number of words/numbers without looking at them beforehand. Then set the time limit and have them find all necessary pairs. Variation: deal the numbers between the kids and shuffle the fruits, ask them to find the matching fruits according to their numbers;
Memory game. You may play this game with different combinations (numbers+words, words+fruits, fruits+numbers or with the sets of 3: words+fruits+numbers. To make the game more difficult use all three sets: pictures numbers and words. And let students open 3 cards at a time). Shuffle the numbers and the pictures. Put all the cards face down on the floor (or table), determine the order of the players in the game. Children take turns to open two cards and name them. If they match, the player keeps the cards and has another go, if they don't the cards are turned over again and another child goes. At the end of the game you can ask children to make short sentences with the target vocabulary or call out the numbers they have won (I've got three cherries/I've got five pears etc);
What's missing? Put a number of flashcards (6-8) on the table (or floor) face-up in order all the players could see them properly. Students look at the cards trying to memorize as many as possible. Ask them to close their eyes and remove one (or more cards). Ask: what's missing? They must name the missing number or picture. The student who does it first, gets a point or has a go to take away another card. To make the game more effective, and reduce teacher talking time, divide the students into groups and give them cards with vocabulary you want them to learn or revise.
