Goal - to follow the instructions to make a growing and shrinking potion. (number recognition and addition)

Ashton was able to recognise the numbers and follow the instructions to complete these simple addition questions. As Ashton completed each addition question a potion was made and he loved this. Overall Ashton did a great job following the instructions and showed he can successfully add small numbers easily.

My next step involved placing the corresponding sentence cards underneath each picture, as I did this I read the sentence out to Ashton and explained it in more detail where needed.
