On 19 October 2020, an epidemic was declared in Slovenia for the second time in that year. We altered teaching to long-distance. First-graders, who just got to know each other in less than two months and became partially aware of what school and teaching are all about, were particularly challenged. Questions began to arise about how to make distance learning as interesting and effective as possible for students at a distance, through computer technology. In mathematics, the number up to 10 is discussed in the first part of the school year. In order for the children to get to know the numbers well, and to be able to imagine them quantitatively, it was necessary to prepare various activities and games, which they performed at home during distance learning and were supposed to help them. Activities included both technology and a lot of movement, as children develop several areas at once through play and movement and also remember more. It turned out that children who regularly performed mathematical activities, after returning to school, had no problems counting, recalling, writing numbers. Well-developed numerical representations also made it easier to understand the size relationships between numbers.
