Do you know how to draw a tally chart?
Can you use a tally chart to count how many birds you can see in your garden or whilst you are out on a walk?
Stand very quietly for about 5 minutes.
Every time you spot a bird make a mark on a piece of paper or on the ground with a stick or chalks.
Can you count the marks to find out how many birds you saw?
Do you know how to write that numeral?
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Here is a little rhyme about birds to help you to learn to count backwards from 5 to 0.
Five little robins with Daddy Robin soar.
One baby leaves the nest and now there are four.
Four baby robins high in a tree,
One flies to catch a worm, and now there are three.
Three little robins had nothing to do,
One tried his new-found wings, and then there were two.
Two little robins frolicked in the sun,
One chased away a bug, and then there was one.
One baby robin left all alone,
And this baby robin decided to stay home!
