Gather some objects from around your home. Collect 3 plates or bowls. Ask the children to count out 6 objects. Explain they are now going to share the 6 objects equally between 2 plates. Remember to put one on each plate at a time. Count how many objects you have on each plate. 6 shared between 2 equals 3
Repeat this activity using up to 12 objects and 2 or 3 plates.
If you find it tricky: Use up 8 objects and 2 plates. Share 2 then 4 then 6 then 8 between the 2 plates. Explain each step as you work out the answer.
Challenge: Use up to 15 objects to share between 3 plates. Then create your own sharing number sentences. How many objects will you use between how many plates?
