              Developing a secure understanding of number in the early years is essential to building children's number confidence for later learning. A wide variety of meaningful hands-on experiences are required to develop a deep sense of number. 50 Fantastic Ideas for Exploring Number prese...nts ideas that are all about doing - not only stimulate the senses, but to also provoke thinking and talking, allow questions to be asked, and ensure that connections are made between number concepts and the real world. The ideas require little preparation beforehand, can be used by practitioners without any specific expertise in teaching early number, and use easy-to-source materials that can be found outside the setting to promote a sense of continuing learning beyond the classroom. From adding and taking away and number stories, to identifying and writing numbers, each area of the early number sense is covered. Counting forward and back, manipulating real objects in sets, finding patterns and recording using a variety of means are essential building blocks to real understanding before number moves on to a representational or symbolic stage. Alison Hutchison draws on her wealth of experience to present 50 ideas and experiences that make numbers fun and accessible so that children feel that they are discovering and developing their own expertise in their investigation and exploration.
