3. Count out 12 objects one at a time - what is 1 less than 12? What is 1 more than 12? 

4. Show the children how number 12 is made up of 10 dots and then 2 more. 

5. Look at 12 0 clock

6. Explore doubles of numbers. So double 6 is 12. Show the children 6 and another 6. How many have we altogether? We have 12. Look at double 1, double 2, double 3 etc up to double 6.

7. Show the children 6 objects. How many more do i need to add to this to make 12? Look at adding to other numbers to total 12. 

8. Show the children 6+6= 12 - use objects to explore this. Look at other addition sums using the vocabulary of add, plus and equals to explore them. 

9. Can you share 12 biscuits between two people? How many will you get each?
