We have been counting the days that we have been at school. Each day we add the next number and talk about what we know about the number, practise counting, collecting and making the number in a variety of ways. Today we made the number 23 using fingers, we noticed that we had 2 full sets of fingers and 3 more individual fingers, just like on the ten frames we have 2 full ten frames and 3 more. This is the beginning of understanding place value.
