More and fewer

Parent Info

The snowflakes on the mittens sheets that were in your packs can be cut up and used as a game that the children can look at and say which coloured mitten has more or which mitten has fewer snowflakes.

Fewer is a word that isn't often used, we tend to use the word 'less' so it needs introducing and then encourage the children to use it in everyday life. The technical way to distinguish which to use is....Fewer is used when the amounts can be counted less is used for non countable amounts less sugar, less liquid, but please don't worry about explaining this to the children!
