Introduction to sums

I simply printed and laminated the numbers, addition and equals symbols, used some little wooden ladybirds that I already had amongst my craft things and cut out two leaves from green felt. I either a)Put the ladybirds on the leaves and get Lamb to find the matching numbers then add them together and find the correct number to complete the sum or b)Put the numbers out and get Lamb to count out the correct number of ladybirds per leaf then add them together.
At the end I get him to read it back to me "Two plus One equals three".
