This week is a tad hectic in our ‘working-parent-whilst-the-kids-are-at-home’ schedule. In an attempt to keep their minds occupied I’ve been setting them independent learning challenges on the fridge. This means they see it every time they go for a snack, they’re free to make mistakes with their whiteboard pens and I’ve tried to make activities open-ended tasks with lots of possibilities for them to explore...
My approach to supporting their continuing education at home has always been keeping their minds occupied and their hearts happy. This has been a great activity to get them thinking mathematically, to consolidate previous learning in a non-threatening way and to keep them engaged and motivated.
No worksheets, no tech, just fun maths!
