What you will learn in section 6:

You will see and hear Spanish people counting in lots of different contexts, including skipping games, PE/sport activities,classroom maths, and counting dinosaur footprints.

The Teacher's Guide suggests ways of helping children to remember the list of words - including a catchy "numbers" song - which is also on the CD included in the pack.

The pack also includes a board game in which players call out numbers in Spanish.


Europe's largest concentration of fossilised dinosaur footprints is used to give children practice in counting!

Spanish dinosaurs can count! Pupils see a fun cartoon sequence of numbers - and see a skipping game where Spanish children count
Numbers come into what people talk about every day - like station platforms...
You can hear Spanish children counting as part of lots of games - when do YOU hear people count out loud?
