Today we used our skills of counting back and counting on to help find the difference between two sets of objects. We used ice cream cones and pom-poms to demonstrate each child having a certain amount of ice cream scoops. We thought about what the word ‘difference’ meant and how we could find the difference between the two different ice creams. We discussed who had more and how we could find this out. We then recorded our own answers by looking at the differences in our own work.
