Either use the sheets provided in the documents below or draw your own pictures to count.  


Little Red Riding Hood Counting Sheets

If you can't print off the above sheets try this kitchen cupboard sorting and counting activity. 


Maybe on a walk you can pick up some natural items and bring them home to sort and count how many you have collected. To extend the learning go for another walk and add more items to your original piles add them together to find a new total, this is adding.
