# Max Maths, Year 1, Let's Practice, Counting to 10

In the 'Max Maths, Year 1, Let's Practice' section focused on counting to 10, young learners are encouraged to strengthen their number recognition and counting skills through engaging matching activities. The first task requires students to match each numeral to the corresponding number of items, providing a visual and interactive way to reinforce their understanding of quantities. This could involve, for example, drawing a line from the number 1 to a picture of a single apple or from the number 5 to a group of five ducks.

The second activity extends this concept by asking students to match written number words with the correct number of items. This helps to build the connection between the spoken and written form of numbers, which is a fundamental skill in developing numeracy. Words such as 'eight', 'six', and 'ten' are to be matched with collections of items that represent these quantities. To continue practising and to access more exercises, students are directed to workbook (WB) pages 11 to 13, where they can find additional tasks and challenges to further consolidate their counting abilities.
