|Oral maths games to help your child|
|Thursday, 18 October 2012 16:50|
There are a number of simple ways in which you can help your child with maths at home. I have compiled a number of ideas which may be of use to you as a parent. Although some of these activities may seem very basic, studies have shown that children who have a lot of hands on experience in their early years will have a greater understanding in this area as they progress to more difficult tasks.
Sorting and Matching
Have your child help to sort the laundry eg. match up socks.
Have your child sort the knives, forks and spoons in the drawer.
Sort shells or leaves into similar shaped groups.
Sort things into groups of similar colour, shape or size.
Counting and Number
Counting and clapping from 0-10 , counting backwards from 10- 0.
Counting and clapping from 3-8, counting backwards from 8-3 etc...
Counting Can- drop a small number of objects eg. coins, conkers into a can, ask your child how many are in the can. (extention- now drop in some more objects, now how many are in the can?) Do not allow your child to see the objects as you are dropping them, they must rely on the sound alone.
Make out cards with numbers 1-10.Allow your child to count the numbers. Remove one. Which number is missing? ( alternatively mix up the numbers and have your child'fix' them.)
Count to a number no higher than 10 to begin with, leave out a number but nod your head, 'which number did I leave out?'
