Geometric Multiplication Circles - GREAT Activity!!!!

This was part of my maths lesson today - we had so much fun and it was so successful!
We started off with some skip counting.
 Then we sat in a circle with the numbers 0 to 9 in front of 10 children.
 Then using wool, we started at 0 and decided we were going to count by 4's. We started at 0 then went to 4.
 Then we went to 8 then 2 (12), then 6 (16), then 0 (20). We stopped when we got back to 0 and looked at the shape we created. Then we tried again with 3, 6 and 7. We made some great shapes!
 Then we tried to draw our own using the number circles and a ruler.
 This the the shape counting by 3 makes!
 Counting by 3 and counting by 7 have the same pattern! Wow! (7 has the same numbers just counts backwards!)
