## Counting Backwards From a Non-Zero Starting Point

I am learning to count backwards starting from ANY number.

I know I can do it when I am able to count backwards from a non-zero starting point.

Yesterday we practised count forwards from numbers other than zero, today we are going to practise counting backwards.

You may wish to use the 100s chart that you used yesterday.

The online version can be found here.

Like yesterday, you will be using playing cards or dice to find 2-digit numbers. If you do not have playing cards or dice, you can find some virtual dice here.

Remember – If you are using playing cards, you will need to remove the Jacks, Queens, Kings, Jokers and 10s.

Roll 2 dice or pick two playing cards from your deck to make a 2-digit number (for example 43). In your Maths book, write down the previous 8 numbers (for example 42, 41, 40, 39…).

Repeat this with at least 5 different numbers.

If you are finding this too tricky, try only using numbers less than 30.

If you want to challenge yourself, you could start with 3-digit or 4-digit numbers.

## Counting Forwards From a Non-Zero Starting Point.

I am learning to count on starting from ANY number.

I know I can do it when I am able to count on from a non-zero starting point.

Today we are going to focus on counting, starting from numbers other than zero. To help you with this, you may wish to use a 100s chart. Find an online 100 chart here.

OR you can print your own using one of the charts in the file below. ↓↓↓

Last week you used playing cards or dice to find 2-digit numbers. You will need to do this again today. If you do not have playing cards or dice, you can find some virtual dice here.

Note* If you are using playing cards, you will need to remove the Jacks, Queens, Kings, Jokers and 10s.

Roll 2 dice or pick two playing cards from your deck to make a 2-digit number (for example 43). In your Maths book, write down the next 8 numbers (for example 44, 45, 46, 47…).

Repeat this process for at least 5 different numbers.
